Get Away to a Slice of Paradise


Romantic. Secluded. Spectacular. Luxurious. Elegant. Tranquil. Private. Gracious. An escape from the ordinary into paradise.

It’s all this, and so much more! Pasa Tiempo on Boca Ciega Bay in St. Petersburg Beach is a rare find. A place to get away from your daily routine while you relax and unwind in style. You’ll find yourself immersed in total luxury in a completely different world—but less than an hour away from almost everywhere in Tampa Bay. This adults only (21 and over) private waterfront resort is truly exceptional.

If you’re looking for a great place to enjoy a Staycation, where your pleasure begins the moment you arrive, this tropical paradise is the perfect answer. True to its name, Pasa Tiempo is an ideal place to pass some time in a completely different environment. No wonder Travel Advisor rated it best among all the Inns and B & B’s on the Beach in 2013.

Old World charm combines with completely renovated spacious rooms and suites and modern conveniences to make Pasa Tiempo so appealing. Lush, well-maintained tropical gardens with romantic fountains, a private pool, luxuriously appointed accommodations and so much more make this tropical hideaway an ideal destination for a night or two—or for a longer stay. Very private and secluded, there’s nothing like it on the Beach.

Open Water Access for Boats, Ideal for Weddings

Accessible by water as well as by land, Pasa Tiempo has an 85-foot boat dock with newly refurbished wet slips to accommodate up to two 75-foot vessels or up to four smaller ones. It’s one of just a few open water locations where boaters can have docking space when they reserve accommodations to stay at the resort. A concierge can arrange for a private car service while you’re here, massage and other spa services, private table reservations at world-class restaurants and a visiting chef to prepare and serve your fresh catch of the day.

Pasa Tiempo is also perfect for small weddings—and for a really private honeymoon. If you choose to have a wedding at Pasa Tiempo, “Tied the Knot,” can arrange all the details. And Amici’s Catered Cuisine can provide delicious food and drinks at an intimate cocktail party reception or a formal dinner for up to 50 guests. Wedding packages can include two nights of luxurious accommodations for up to eight couples. The bride and groom will stay in the Waterfront Presidential Suite, a one-of a-kind ground floor paradise, while the management will arrange for additional family and friends to stay at quality hotels on the beach.

When you visit this resort, a champagne toast will welcome your arrival, and owner-host Sherry Andersen will see to your every need. This place for a dream vacation is her dream as well. Tired of the corporate grind working in pharmaceuticals in Chicago, she searched far and wide before a realtor mentioned that Pasa Tiempo might be available. The rest is history, and Sherry and the former owner (who lives next door) have become good friends.

“She’s helped me quite a bit and trained me in this specialized business,” Sherry says.

Renovations Bring Rave Reviews

While this private waterfront resort has been here for quite a while, it looks totally different inside and out from the day that its new owner first saw it. Guests who have visited the place before are more than pleased by the changes that Sherry Andersen has made.

“They love it,” she says. “They are blown away by the difference.”

Each of the seven suites and one room at Pasa Tiempo is spacious (from 400 to 850 square feet in size), well-appointed and luxurious. Pasa Tiempo, offers an extravagant level of privacy and leisure that might make you think you’re enjoying a Mediterranean or Caribbean getaway.

Reservations are accepted all year round, but because of the limited number of accommodations, it’s wise to reserve early. Prices are surprisingly reasonable for such an exceptional place and are competitive with those at the area’s finest hotels. Special offers during the summer months make it even more affordable. Details on pricing are available on line at

Sherry Andersen herself lives on property in a smaller building separated from the resort by a beautifully landscaped private courtyard and adjoining the private pool with its tempting chaise lounges, mint-colored towels and azure planters brimming with brightly colored flowers. With her father as her business partner, Sherry looks forward to keeping Pasa Tiempo fully booked year-round.

Once word gets out about this private waterfront paradise, that shouldn’t take very long!
