Waterside at Coquina Key
Condo | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Luxury waterside condo apartment on Florida's Gulf Coast (St. Petersburg) sleeps up to 6
Beautiful apartment in tranquil setting, right on the waterfront with spectacular, open water views over the Big Bayou. Watch the dolphins swim past your private terrace while the egrets, herons, and occasional kingfisher dive for their food in front of you. You too can fish from right outside the apartment and catch fresh fish for your own supper.
• Master bedroom - Queen size double bed, walk-in closet and ensuite shower room.
• Second bedroom - twin beds, large closet.
• Family Bath / Shower room
• Large, open-plan living room with comfortable seating area (including double sofa-bed), dining table for 6 and well equipped kitchen.
• Living area opens onto large terrace with further dining and seating for 6 and adjacent lawn area leading to the water's edge directly in front of the apartment. (NB: the waterfront is unfenced and young children should be supervised at all times). The terrace and lawn provide areas of sun and shade throughout the day.
Make the most of the private club facilities within two minutes walk of your front door. Play tennis, swim in the over-sized pool (which is never over-crowded), work out in the gym or just relax in the clubhouse with free Wifi connection (the Clubhouse also has full laundry facilities).
St. Petersburg is just a 10 minute drive (or bus or taxi ride) with its great selection of restaurants ranging from casual to upscale. Stroll along the waterfront parks and stop at the boutiques and cafes along Beach Drive. Visit the exotic Sunken Gardens and view the excellent museums and galleries including the world renowned Dali Museum. In the evening try out one of the Theatres or the 20 screen movie-plex. Across the bridge towards Tampa you will find all the major department stores and just 30 minutes drive south the excellent Factory Outlet Mall at Ellenton with 130 major brands including Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Saks 5th Avenue.
St. Pete's Beach is 15 minutes away and forms part of a stunning, 18 mile unbroken stretch of white sand beaches running alongside the Gulf of Mexico from the quiet Pass-a-Grille beach in the south to the more vibrant Clearwater beach further north. With so much sand, the beaches are never over-crowded and there is a wide selection of bars, restaurants and facilities along the beachfront as you head north up Gulf Blvd. For a more natural and tranquil beach, head to Fort de Soto. Protected as a National Park, with over 1,100 acres of sandy beach, dunes, woodland and natural beauty to enjoy, Fort de Soto has been repeatedly voted the best beach in the USA. St. Petersburg is recognised as one of the sunniest cities in America with an average of 360 days of recorded sunshine per year. The water temperature in the Gulf is equally pleasant ranging from 17 deg. in winter to 29 deg. in summer.
There is plenty to do in and around the area. You can hire fishing gear, bicycles and kayaks by the day. To explore the water more thoroughly, hire a boat for the day (sail, motor or electric) or learn to sail at the local sailing school. Tampa boasts its own theme park in Busch Gardens which is only 40 mins away or drive a little further (2 hours) to Orlando and the world famous theme parks of Disney, Universal Studios, Epcot, Seaworld, Discovery Cove and Legoland are all within reach.
Whether you want to take it easy or keep yourself busy, this apartment and the surrounding area has everything you need..

"Peaceful, spotless, waterside apartment"
I loved getting up each morning to the tranquillity of this special place. Modern, well equipped and ideal holiday rental. The complex is safe and the pool area spacious and quiet. The excitement of the morning was drinking coffee and watching dolphins swim just outside the terrace. One morning an alligator appeared. I also loved the fact that the site has mainly residents and you get to know them as the jog past or walk their dogs by the water.
You will need a car as the eating attractions are not walkable, but St Pete is easily navigated. And what an upmarket place it is! Fabulous beach and beach bar/restaurants and stylish down town. Galleries and museums galore and a feeling of a place with culture and finesse. Don't miss the Saturday farmers market downtown and then bring them home, and eat on the terrace.

"Lovely property; from where you can embark on any kind of trip you like"
A wonderful spot to escape to from an English winter! Apartment is much bigger than it looks in the photos; especially the living room. Comfortable with everything you need. The deck is fantastic from early morning cup of tea to glass of wine at sunset. Peaceful complex and the property benefits from being a corner unit so has double aspect and feels very private. Right on the water with an interesting outlook and plenty of wildlife. Complex is gated and the entrance is staffed 24/7 which makes it feel secure. Also benefits from having full time residents scattered throughout so it doesn't feel like an artifical 'holiday complex'. You need a car and that's when you can choose whatever type of holiday you want - it's all in striking distance so you can be as laid back or as full on as you wish - or a little of both.
Great property; great location - you'll want to go again - I do!
