My family enjoyed a four night stay at #1 Beach Club at Pass-A-Grille, St. Pete Beach in May. Our unit was an easy drive to popular sightseeing, shopping and restaurants located in the more tourist populated areas. And provided easy beach access, less traffic, and quiet evenings. Parking passes were provided with the unit and we had no issues with parking. The lower level unit was accessible for the older members in our party and the set-up of the unit worked out well for us. Overall a great place to stay!
This is our 2nd visit to this property. We definitely rate it high for a few reasons-
1. The location can NOT be beat
2. The rates are affordable
3. A pool (which is rare in PAG)
4. Awesome fishing
5. The property is small - only 8 units
6. Washer/Dryer in each unit
Unfortunately there are some negatives
The biggest one is - you come to Gulf Way your see .... wait for it - right the Gulf of Mexico and as the enclosed photos will show - (correction no link to post a pic with the review) the palm trees completely obstruct the view - really that is a major flaw.
Then on a minor note - the unit we are in (7) has no TV in the bedroom - which I certainly think would be noted in a rental agreement - and definitely a inconvenience.
But rest assured if you're lucky enough to stay here ... you're lucky enough.
Since we love the Pass-A-Grille area, and really wanted the amenities of a condo, we decided to book this condo on a somewhat short notice. We loved it so much, we'll definitely be back! First of all, it is in a great location. Right across the street from the beach, and the beach access walkway is just kitty-corner across the intersection. There are several good restaurants just one or two blocks away, and more that are within a short walking distance. Even Paradise Sweets is just down the block, with their Working Cow homemade ice cream. There are so many things to do right in this area, you wouldn't even need to leave Pass-A-Grille!
When we arrived for our stay late Monday night, we entered through the back pool area, per the instructions. It was neat to be greeted by one of Florida's many small lizards. We had a little trouble figuring out the lock on the back door. We finally realized that after you enter the lock code, you turn the dead bolt all the way to the left, and give the door a good pull because it's tight to the floor until you open it a ways. The condo was exactly as pictured - although it's even more comfortable than the pictures convey. The couch is extremely comfortable, and the beds are very nice as well, especially the master bed. The kitchen had all the utensils and things we needed for cooking, and we didn't even need some of the extras we bought. Do an inventory of bags, paper towels, etc, before heading to the store, and just get what you need. The bathroom was nice, and the shower water pressure was very good. The master bedroom is very nice, with plenty of storage in the 2 dressers to unpack for the week, and the closet has additional hanging space & shelves. We had plenty of provided bath & beach towels for the week without having to do any laundry. The TV's in the master bedroom & living room worked well (the TV in the back room is not hooked up to service), and the wifi was almost as fast as home and worked well too. Outside the front door, the patio & chairs afford a very nice view of the beach area. The landscaping is beautiful. The provided beach chairs are awesome & very comfortable. They sling over your shoulder like a backpack, and even have a little pillow for added comfort. The included parking pass is a very nice added bonus. We contacted the owners a couple times, and received quick replies. No cockroaches or bugs in this place! We have already recommended this condo to others, and will be back again!
