The Absolute Perfect PLACE TO BE
The Absolute Perfect PLACE TO BE
This condo is even better than the description online and the photos. I just returned from a one week stay there and each day I stayed there I was amazed with this condo and the items that Carol and Vic had provided for their guests. First let me start by saying, I am a 64 yr old female who was traveling to St Pete to visit my dtr and new grandbaby. The security at this gated community was outstanding. Carol was waiting for me at the condo with a big welcome smile and a VIP TOUR. I called her once to ask a question about the wi-fi (simply because my old eyes couldn't read the code to sign in with) and she answered my call immediately. She assured me that if I had any more questions or problems to call her. I had no problems except leaving! The kitchen had every electric appliance you could ever need, including toaster, slow cooker, blender, griddle mixer,etc. The kitchen was also stocked with more than basic cooking ingredients which she explained were there for my use. Carol also brought me a dozen fresh brown eggs from their farm. The baths included everything you would have access to at your own home. Amazing. Carol and Vic also had provided books for reading pleasure, board games, and cards. Oh, one other thing that I really liked was the fact that for each of the three rooms with flat screen televisions, she had provided a laminated copy of the tv channels. i loved that. I hate going to a new place and not knowing where the channels are. The view from the condo was so serene. I still have not decided which view I liked better, downstairs patio and den or upstairs balcony each with magnificent views of the bay. There is also a yacht clubhouse about a 2 minute walk from the condo which has a library for guests as well as a very nice bar area which provides daily specials. I will be returning to St Pete many times in the years to come to visit grandbaby and i sure hope i get to stay here again. It is truly the absolute perfect place to be. I have made two new friends, even though I am a Texas Ranger fan and they are Tampa Bay Rays fans!

Loved, loved, loved, this condo. We had a wonderful time. Carol thought of everything and more. Don't know what we would have done without her help with directions. The sunrises were beautiful. It was nice to sit out in the morning looking out at the water , the peace and quiet was great. The pool was only a few steps away from us , met a lot of nice people too. If we ever go back we will stay here again for sure. The only downside was that we had painters come to paint the outside the last 3 days we were there but Carol had no say in that and she hated it for us too. We still had a GREAT time .....thanks again for a wonderful vacation..

Owner response: Hi Pat: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Can you believe the painters are still here. (6 days after you left) They are now doing the touch up work and hopefully will be gone by tomorrow. It will look wonderful when they finally complete our complex. You hope to see you again.

I'm almost hesitant to write this review...because I want this condo to always be available for us! This is a great home. Virtually on the water, with dolphins, pelicans and all kinds of other birds passing by all the time, along with the speedboats. Well furnished and equipped, with a very comfortable king sized bed in the master, and a bonus "mini office," including computer and printer. The pictures on the VRBO site are accurate...this place is very nice. It's in a gated community, with wandering security patrols, so safety is excellent. Two pools..no waiting! A small, but well equipped exercise facility. You can drive to downtown St. Petersburg, with all its wonderful restaurants and activities, in 10 minutes. The "yacht club" is a great place for drinks on the veranda, watching the cruise ships go by. But the best part of this condo is the owners...Carol is very responsive to any questions, and has lots of recommendations.

Beautiful condo on the bay!
Beautiful condo on the bay!
This condo in St. Petersburg was absolutely beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The view from the living area and master bedroom was incredible. We watched the sunrise every morning while also seeing dolphins swim by on many days. The amenities included a good size pool and hot tub, also with great views of the bay. The unit had everything anyone could need, I felt right at home. The owners were very helpful and provided pamphlets and info on the surrounding area. I will definitely be calling to stay for our next vacation!

What a wonderful relaxing place! The views from the patio were exceptional; just as listed! Carol and Victor supplied everything we needed for our month's stay. They responded immediately to any questions or issues we had. It is a great location; close to St. Petersburg and Tampa activities. We would recommend this property to any future travelers.

About the owner: We are retired realtors who live to travel. Even though we live on 5 acres east of Tampa we love the water and buying this condo fulfilled a life long dream. Now that we have finished a major renovation it is time to share our lovely condo with others.
Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg:
We did not want to own something which feels like an apartment, and wanted to have a feeling of privacy. Waterside at Coquina Key has a Key West resort feel. The units are all only two stories high and feel very open. Being right on Tampa Bay gives the condo a wonderful peaceful feeling. Being a 24 hour guard gated community gives a very comfortable feeling of safety.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The pool is heated year round, and both the pool & spa are directly on Tampa Bay with an incredible view. Our unit is immediately next to the pool, spa and clubhouse. We enjoy going to the private Yacht Club in the evening and playing Eucre with fellow residents. Enjoy walking or biking around the development and watching the water and the boats in their slips on site. Our son has had great luck catching red snapper, grouper and sheeps head from near our patio. There are numerous great restaurants to dine at just two miles from Waterside and it is a joy to walk out on the famous Pier which is in the same area.
