“Absolutely loved Island's End”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Had tried to stay here a few years ago and couldn't get a room so we were excited to be able to book this time. We wanted Unit F and were able to get it...spent night one of 7 in Unit E since F was occupied. Unit E is actually roomier than F but F has the private deck on the water. Both E and F were spotless and comfortable efficiencies, Unit E has a queen bed and F has a King. Although F is (as others have noted) an odd shape (living room is long and narrow) we loved it...the bedroom window looks out to the water/deck and since it was chilly while we were there the deck was great to have as it was always warm and sheltered. Island's End serves a continental breakfast on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday which was a nice addition and there are only 6 units. Plenty of outdoor areas to lounge around the property if you don't have the deck as we did. Everyone we met on staff was great and helpful; Melanie and her dog Gunner were especially awesome. The location of Island's End is perfect...you are adjacent to the Bay (went for an early morning walk there every day and found tons of shells) and a VERY short walk to Pass-a-grille beach. Looking forward to going back!

For our second stay of 6 nights, we were able to get Suite F, which while oddly configured,
has a large private deck looking directly at the Pass. It is sheltered so that on a not so warm windy 68 degree day, you can relax in almost hot comfort. The deck alone is worth the price. The rest of the unit was clean and comfortable. Just what we have come to expect from this top notch "time warp" resort. Pass-A-Grille dosen't change but keeps getting better.

Room Tip: There better rooms, but the private deck is outstanding

So, I've had a standing reservation at Island's End for about 12 years now. We went twice this year, two-weeks in May and a week over new years. We rent Unit A, which has a private pool and a three-bedroom cottage. The view is magnificent and you are surrounded by water on three sides. On the weekends and at sunset there is nothing better than sitting by the pool watching the boat parade. You also have nice views of Shell Island and Fort DeSoto.

The grounds are beautiful, and there are only 6 bungalows. There is staff all day, and the owner lives on site. It is a genuine 50's-style paradise. There is a great dock where you can fish, or just watch the dolphins.

The staff is friendly and will clean your cabin whenever you like.

The place isn't "fancy" per se. But it has all of the modern amenities and great mattresses. You will sleep very well.

In all of the world, I am sure there are nicer places with better views... This one just happens to be mine.

Room Tip: Unit A... If you can get it. Otherwise, Unit F.

If you are looking for the "old" Florida of bungalows, white sand, and quiet beaches, Pass-a-Grille is for you. And, if you want the perfect place in Pass-A-Grille, Island's End is your stop with its lovely grounds surrounded by water on three sides, charming cottages with full kitchens, and all the amenities you need for the seaside. Before we left, we made reservations for the next year.

My family rented the resort out for a wedding and this place came through in every way imaginable. The staff was terrific, the grounds were perfect size for an outdoor reception (wedding was a couple hundred yards away on the beach) and the location couldn't have been any better. This is a low-key, convenient and friendly place to get away.

We have been to this area of Pass A Grille beach several times and always enjoyed this particular beach. Island's End looked and inviting and the manager was kind enough to show us around the property. We were given a gift of an overnight stay for this resort and we jumped at the opportunity. Our stay was lovely, the greeting was warm, the room was spotless and well appointed and the views could not be beat. The resident bunny was especially fun to watch. We will definitely be back!!!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room so I would suggest take anyone you like.
