The Alamar is a custom-built, three-story waterfront home on Pass-A-Grille Beach in St. Petersburg that was designed with a modern flair by renowned Florida architect Michael Dedmore. This five-bedroom house was built from solid masonry for superior strength. At the center of the home’s interior is a magnificent, seven-foot-in-diameter round glass elevator. Stunning views of the beach and Gulf increase dramatically, as the elevator rises from the ground floor up to the second and third floors. The living area features a one-of-a-kind 22-foot-high white Carrera marble fireplace. Additional Carrera marble is used for a half-wall dividing the state-of-the-art kitchen and dining area from the living room and additional social areas. The back of the house abuts to the conservation land with a boardwalk leading to the white sand beach and the glistening waters of the Gulf of Mexico and offers a pristine natural setting. This seaside environment is lush with mature foliage that creates an intimate and private oasis. There is a 36-foot saltwater lap pool along with an adjacent, oversized whirlpool. The Alamar is a true, not to be missed, Florida jewel.

Don Cesar — The Pink Palace
Three bridges lead to this beautiful island with its soft white sand beaches, beautiful city parks, and an array of retail, restaurants and hotels that serve residents and accommodate the many visitors who are drawn here. The most famous St. Pete Beach icon is The
Don Cesar, Florida’s legendary “Pink Palace” luxury resort and an area landmark for nearly a century.
There are 9,346 people that live year-round in St. Pete Beach according to the 2010 U.S. Census, yet the number of residents doubles in the winter, when seasonal residents from other parts of the U.S., Canada and Europe come to stay. About 28 percent of the homes here are in fact second homes.
The warm Gulf waters and 4 ½ miles of beach afford plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities. But St. Pete Beach also has one of the most active parks and recreation programs anywhere. The Family Aquatic Center is a popular destination for locals, and offers classes and swim teams along with the opportunity to just relax around the pool. Residents might partake in a painting class at the Cultural Arts Center or a hip hop class at the Community Center. Sports leagues are popular among adults and kids. Special Time
Every April people from all over the county come to St. Pete Beach for the
Beach Goes Pops event on Pass-a-Grill Beach. It’s free to the public with jazz on Friday and full orchestra pops on Saturday. In November the city puts on the Annual Fish Broil and Auction which started in the 1930s as a way to raise money for schools. This popular event features mullet charcoaled over open pits.
“St. Pete Beach is an island, a small place that’s not going to get any bigger. Those of us who live here love it and feel fortunate to be a part of it. Truth be known, I hate leaving the island for anything.” Danny Walker, resident since 1973. Factoids:
