About the property

2 Bedroom; 1.5 Bathrooms; Overlooking Lake; 3 Minute Walk To Tampa Bay

The owners have continued their renovation of their new winter home by painting the interior with light, brighter paint, installing new carpeting on the stairs and second floor, installing retractable screen doors on all of the doors to better enjoy the evening breezes without visiting bugs, and installing ceramic tile in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Last winter they renovated the kitchen with new cabinets, granite countertops and a glass backsplash. This was in addition to the new first floor wood floors; new ceiling fans; all new furniture and bedding they completed the previous year. The existing first floor half bath and new washer dryer make the two story townhouse easy living.

One of the nicest features of the first floor is being able to see the lake and it's splashy fountain from the open living/dining area. Walking out through the large glass doors onto the patio makes watching the resident birds a delight while having dinner or just lounging. It's also an easy 2 minute walk to the fitness center and nearest pool. The second pool on Tampa Bay is only a 3 minute walk in the other direction. Protected from the bay winds it's an ideal location.

The second floor Master bedroom and guest room also have all new beautiful furniture with lively, colorful bedding. A flat screen TV was added last winter The Master balcony overlooks the lake and is a pleasant place to enjoy coffee in the morning or have a glass of wine while watching the sun set over the lake. Between the bedrooms is the main bathroom with an extra large recently updated tile shower and lots of hooks and rods to hold towels.

The Waterside complex is gated. In addition, there is 24 hour security throughout the grounds. We've always felt very safe.

Waterside is just 3 miles from downtown St. Petersburg with all of its museums, shops, restaurants, parks and waterfront. It's a lively walkable town with lots to see and do.

About Michelle

The owners' primary residence is in the Rochester, New York area, known for its snowy, cold, grey winters.

Michelle purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Michelle chose Coquina Key

The owners visited many areas of Florida over the years but never liked anywhere as much as charming, historic St. Petersburg. They spent their first retirement winter at Waterside. Avoiding much of that year's terrible winter made them realize they should remain in St. Petersburg, at least in the winter. Now as owners they want to share their lovely new second home with others who want to enjoy the area.

What makes this townhome unique

The owners decided to buy 4746 shortly after walking through the front door. The bright white cabinets in the kitchen and it's large size, compared to most condos in the area, were selling features. Having a first floor half bath and a washer/dryer were desirable features. Then they saw the expansive view; the lawn, lake and fountain through the large glass doors in the living room, so different from the narrow canal views and backs of other townhouses which is so common. The second floor balcony with its own expansive views was a plus as was the extra large size of the Master bedroom, the large closets, spacious guest room and updated tile shower and bathroom. They knew they could make it a very comfortable home. They look forward to spending winters there for many years to come and sharing it with new friends at other times.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed it. Met a lot of nice people.

The condo association has a lot of rules, but I guess that keeps the place nice.

The landlords were awesome and very easy to work with.

Perfect Vacation Rental In St. Pete's

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this modern, updated rental. It's very obvious that the open floor plan is well-cared for and well-maintained. Everything about this place - from the beautiful photography on the walls to new kitchen make it easy to relax while you're a guest. Lots of sunlight inside, with beautiful pond and fountain views from the upper and lower patios. Condo is in a very accessible location.

From the on-site pools, gym and waterfront views, there's not much reason to leave. However, St. Pete's Beach and downtown St. Petersberg are a very easy car or bike ride away. 5-10 min drive from Publix, Trader Joes and other conveniences, too.

I worked remotely while I was there. Wifi was fast and never experienced any connection issues. I even found an extension cord to allow me to work on my laptop from the back patio all day long! Great views views. Friendly neighbors and staff. Perfect short or long getaway for singles, couples, families and friends. Can't wait to return!

Nice Place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in St. Petersburg with amenities on site. I was able to visit DeSoto beach, downtown St. Petersburg and other nearby towns easily. Townhouse is well kept and you only need to bring your clothes and bathing suit!
