Luxury Waterfront 2/2 Condo, Amazing Tampa Bay and Skyway Bridge view!
About Chelsea Newberry
Florida girl! Lover of life... and St. Pete. :)
Chelsea Newberry purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Chelsea Newberry chose Coquina Key
The location is perfectly central for you to soak up the sun on the many beautiful beaches during the day and spend your evenings dining, shopping, antiquing, museum-ing, festival-ing, or simply frolicking through the charming and vibrant downtown St. Petersburg. Or, if you want to stick around, the condominium community has plenty to do! And hey, some people use vacation time to do absolutely nothing -- but sleep -- and I bet you'll find the black out shades and soft beds will be perfectly suitable for doing just that!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Thelma and louise
The condo could have been cleaner. Found something behind the pillow on the couch that was really gross!! The furniture on the deck needs to be replaced. When you moved the furniture, there was rust all over. Had to sweep it up a couple of times. The yacht club was beautiful.
Perfect in so many ways
Celebrating our 20th Anniversary without kids! We loved everything about this place. Scenery was amazing from sunsets to dolphins to the decor. Can’t wait to come back.
Very Comfortable with Amazing Views
First, let me say that we enjoyed every minute of our vacation here! The unit was very comfortable and had everything we could have asked for. The beds were comfy, and it was so nice sleeping with the windows open and ceiling fans on. The amazing views from the decks were the real stars of the show here! We enjoyed having our coffee outside and saw dolphins almost every morning and evening. Gorgeous sunrise on the smaller of the decks and sunset views on the larger one, with tropical birds everywhere! The location was great and we had fun exploring St. Pete. Don't miss the St. Pete Farmer's Market on Saturday morning. Snorkeling, boat tour, museums, beaches, restaurants all within 30 minutes of the condo. We ran out of time before we ran out of things to do and see. Chelsea was the perfect hostess. She thought of everything to make our stay comfortable, from the cooler, fishing pole and chairs we could use at the beach, to the binder filled with area attractions and restaurants. The pool and spa were lovely as well. All in all, it was one of the best vacations we've had. Thank you, Chelsea, for sharing your piece of paradise, we'll definitely be back!
Chelsea is a pleasure to rent from... from initial through final contact. Her thoroughness in explaining what a visitor needs to know will put your mind at ease so that you can relax and enjoy her space and the views. My family (two younger girls) would definitely rent again.
She has a beautiful condo in an even more beautiful location with views of Tampa Bay, Sunshine Skyway Bridge, cruise ships, and more. Dolphins were in our view too.
Chelsea has essentially thought of everything with all that is available for use. From excellent wifi and cable to the large variety of kitchen items to the ample closet space to the beach chairs and fishing pole, we appreciated having so much available for use. She also has provided a binder of local restaurant menus and recommendations along with additional helpful information.
We found the larger community quiet, friendly, and full of amenities. Our girls especially enjoyed the main pool (which has a great view of the bay too).
Any activity we had planned (Fort Desoto Park, St. Petersburg Beach, drive across Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tropicana Field, etc.) was a short drive from her condo. And the drive between Tampa International Airport and Chelsea's condo is quite manageable.
We visited the Tampa/St. Petersburg area primarily for a beach vacation and made an outstanding choice staying here.
Better than we could've imagined!
This condo made our honeymoon incredible! It was homey and had everything we could possibly have needed for the week. The balcony was definitely our favorite part. We spent mornings and evenings out there and were able to see sting rays and dolphins swimming right below! The beds were comfortable, the complex was peaceful, and Chelsea had a very helpful binder full of restaurant ideas. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
Everything we assumed and so much more!
The description of the condo, community and view were exactly as depicted - we saw dolphins from one of the two balconies the very first morning and my husband was able to start and finish every day by casting a line just steps from our door. The owner's taste and personality come through very clearly in the furnishings - which included everything we could've needed for our stay and more. I've stayed at other VRBO properties and this was a gem - the owner was a pleasure to work with, very responsive, helpful and we couldn't have been more pleased with the overall experience. Looking forward to booking this property again!
There is SO much to do in St. Pete! Feel free to ask me about any interests you have and I'd be happy to recommend some of my favorite spots. I absolutely adore this city for it's each and every idiosyncrasy; it will always hold a special place in my heart. (Hence, why I bought a condo here - so I'll always have a place to come home to and friends and family can enjoy in between!)
It's no surprise that St. Petersburg is always rated one of the top, up-and-coming cities in the country. It is a must-see city. For its many white sandy beaches, shopping, museums, downtown nightlife, concert venues, regular festivals & markets, and sporting events -- there is always plenty to do!
The city is conducive for day time relaxation and exploring and transforms into a unique place for exciting nightly entertainment. Downtown has a few blocks of activities all accessible by walking once you park (parking is never a problem -- there are lots, garages, and plenty of metered spaces).
It's an eclectic scene where anything goes. Diverse restaurants (few chains), bars (from sports bars, to country bars, night clubs, lounges, Latin, Irish, beer and cigar bars -- there is something for everyone), movie theater, boutique shops, antique stores, music stores, fishing pier and a small beach downtown, fitness areas, the new upscale Sundial center, AND SO MUCH MORE!
