Property description

After spending a busy day swimming at Florida's beautiful beaches, shopping at the outlets or visiting Busch Gardens come home to this 1BR/1BA condo located in a quiet gated community and barbeque on your patio that sits right on a canal. Coquina Key is one of Tampa Bay's best kept secrets.

This 1BR/1BA condo is within a beautiful landscaped 24 hour gated community in the south Waterside complex. The condo sits directly on a canal and the lake can be viewed from the bedroom. The ground floor unit means no stairs to deal with when dragging in your luggage or groceries.
We are happy to accommodate you for anything from a short term (2 weeks) holiday to a full seasonal rental. Cleaning service during your stay can be organized at the renter’s expense.
The condo is fully furnished and you need only bring your bathing suit and sun lotion. All linens, kitchen equipment, etc. is provided. We’ve even provided a cooler for your days at the pool or beach.
The unit is tiled (bedroom has wood laminate flooring) and has quality furnishings. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes full size dishwasher, large microwave, garbage disposal, refrigerator and electric stove. Coffee maker, toaster, etc. is also included.
The master bedroom has a king sized bed and good closet and dresser storage for your clothes. The bedroom has a view of the Waterside lake and fountain.
The living room has a comfy pull out queen sofa bed. The dining area has a Henredon 6 place dining table.
Entertainment equipment includes basic cable for the 46” Plasma TV, a Blu-ray DVD player and portable stereo with iPod dock. WiFi is available at the condo and at the Yacht Club. For longer stays we can arrange more cable access at the renter’s expense.
The back patio sits directly on a canal with no boats blocking your view. A gas grill, wrought iron dining set and sofa are provided. Catch your fish and cook it on the grill without leaving your patio.
Complex facilities include 2 pools, 24 hour gym, Laundromat and a fully licensed yacht club where you can enjoy the game on one of the large screen TVs over a beer or soda or sit outside and enjoy the view of Tampa Bay and look for dolphins or manatees. Some nights the Yacht Club staff will off light meals like Taco Tuesday or Chili night.
The two pools are both resort type pools with one adjacent to the yacht club and sits directly on Tampa Bay and the other next to the gym and over looks the lake. The bayside pool includes a hot tub spa, ice machine and a pier from which you can fish. The second pool includes gym facilities, Laundromat, sauna and shower/ changing area.

For the more active vacationer there are 2 lighted tennis courts, pickle ball courts, basketball court, shuffle board, horseshoes, corn hole, golf driving range (pitching and putting) gym and sand volleyball court.

We reside in Waterside South also, so if you have any problems or need something like beach chairs for your day at the beach or a large pot to cook up some local clams, we will try to help you. The Business Center on site is in the condo administrative areas and can print or fax documents for. On weekends, we can also print anything (like boarding passes) that you may need (we also may be able to help).
Waterside South is a fully fenced complex with 24 hour security at the gates and has 88 acres of landscaped grounds to insure your privacy.

We accept pets ( which may be limited by HOA rules) and there is a dog park on site. We are dog lovers and can offer dog sitting services for well behaved dogs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are residents of Waterside South who moved here as a result of a VRBO stay at the complex. We are retired and live in the complex, so are available for any questions or problems. We lived in Europe for about 15 years and travel frequently, so understand the problems of traveling and hope we can help you out. Michael is a golfer, so is happy to help you out if you want to set up tee times locally.

Why the Owner Chose Coquina Key, Saint Petersburg, FL, USA:
As owners we want to keep the community to as high a standard as possible and being located nearby, we can provide you with any support you may need like restaurant suggestions, best dive diner in the area, shopping, directions, etc. If you find the condo missing something, we may be able to provide it. We are cooks so have a lot of equipment in case you have the urge to have a seafood boil, make a cake or have a picnic.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Waterside is a quiet community, but less than 30 minutes from everything Tampa Bay has to offer. Sarasota and the Amish area is only a bit further away. At Coquina you can spend the day with the crowds, but get away from them in the evening. With 2 pools there is always enough room for all. There is a bar on-site, so you can walk down and have a drink overlooking Tampa Bay or have a drink poolside. Tennis courts are generally empty and we have a pickle ball court, driving range (pitching and putting only), basketball, etc. There is plenty to keep you busy including monthly trivia nights, seasonal festivals, all without leaving the complex.
