About this cottage

Check out our NEW professional virtual video located after the second photo. Keep your eyes on the red aluminum roof!

We are accepting reservations for Winter/Spring 2023. We book up fast.

The Waterfront Charmer, a waterfront cottage, overlooking Boca Ciega Bay is decorated in a Key West style and perfectly located in the heart of of Pass-a-grille's historic district.

We are right next to 8th Ave., which is the 'hub' of this quiet spot, across from the Merry Pier and next to the Seahorse Restaurant (open for breakfast and lunch only and with a new menu!)

The comfortable cottage and cozy loft has everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Just bring a toothbrush!

Pass-a-grille is located on the southernmost tip of St Pete Beach. Near Tampa, St Petersburg, Anna Maria Island, Egmont Key and Bradenton/Sarasota.

We take great care to make sure you have all the comforts needed to make a vacation a memorable experience. We're fortunate enough to have acquired many repeat guests, we book up early for the spring season so don't delay.

A red aluminum roof makes the cottage quickly identifiable! The cabana striped awnings, bright tropical artwork and furnishings complete the charm of old Florida living with contemporary amenities. Cottage has 2 decks - one that looks at Boca Ciega Bay and a second intimate, secluded, covered porch between home and the garage (loft). A privacy fence on both sides of the home. Old oak wood floors, a totally remodeled and updated kitchen, romantic fireplace, ceiling fans, central air, This is our personal guest house for our friends and family when they come visit, so we make sure it never starts looking 'tired'.

We completed a large remodel of both bathrooms a couple years ago, they still have the old cottage look but are totally new! A large laundry area is located in the bottom floor of loft with full sized stacked front load washer and dryer. New loft AC and new AC in the cottage.

Since we are one of the original Pass-a-grille Cottages, we have a bit of a rambling, add-on, footprint. The cottage sleeps 6, 1 queen, 1 full, 2 twins. It is 2 bdroom/2 bath and a small Florida room, with 1 twin bed & 1 twin trundle, which can be closed off from the rest of the cottage. Additionally, the loft sleeps 4. The loft is a upstairs/downstairs with a laundry center and 1 full bed on bottom floor, 2 twins on top level, along with a smart TV. It's a perfect place to house the teenage or almost teenage children.

There is a communal pool available in St Pete Beach, it's about 3 miles away but it is not

bicycle friendly for the average bicycler.

We have been renting the Waterfront Charmer for 17 years! 12 years with VRBO.

    Cute cottage in Paradise

    We spent a week in this cute little cottage and it was so relaxing. The pictures dont do it justice. The views from the front porch were amazing. It was a 2 min walk to the beach and there were several shops and restaurants in walking distance as well. The owner Pat was great, such a sweet heart and always available if you needed anything. We would definitely stay here again next time we visit St Pete.

    Coolest beach house offering Key West Vibe plus unbeatable location.

    House is amazing and offers everything...just bring your food & drink . The attention to detail is remarkable. The separate loft offers on-site privacy for teens, another couple, etc. Walk to everything, beach, village and a few more good restaurants just 1/2 mile away. The owner Pat greeted us and provided a brief walk-thru, she is very responsive. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely a positive experience

    This cottage can accommodate more people than it appears. The cottage looks over the water on the bayside. Pat has nice decorated and equipped her home. She is very responsive and has put alot of work into helping guests learn about the area. This was the best equipped vacation kitchen I've rented..I came wanting to cook more to save money and to avoid crowds in the pandemic and she made it easy to do. I love the PAG area and would definitely recommend this home and owner.
