About the property

2/1.5 townhouse on deep water canal with private dock.

This 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath Key-West style townhome 1022 SF (Sleeps 4-5) has all new furnishings. Just remodeled with new tile downstairs and new gorgeous hardwoods upstairs, freshly painted and new deck. Beautifully located on tropical Coquina key, minutes to Downtown St Petersburg and just a few miles to the gorgous Gulf coast beaches. Enjoy water views on your large Patio with grill and own private boat dock located directly behind your townhome. 70 acres of tropically landscaped gardens. 2 large pools, (one heated year round) Jacuzzi, extra large fitness center, basketball courts, Tennis Courts, sand volleyball and much more. Bayside waterfront yacht club for residents and guests only, with pub open most nights (live music at least twice a month and sometimes more), without even leaving the property. Call for great prices at this resort like property.

The HOA requires a background check and a rental addendum signed. Upon booking I will email you these documents to be signed. If you have any questions please either email me or give me a call. I think its a good idea to get travelers cancellation insurance just in case. I believe VRBO offers this when booking.

Spacious master bedroom with private deck to enjoy coffee or drinks with a peaceful view down the canal to the deep water. Small refrigerator in MB. Second bedroom has twin beds. Living room couch pulls out to queen size bed. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook . TV, Wi-fi, all linens there. Downstairs there is a large patio complete with table and 4 comfortable chairs and new large gas BBQ adds to the outdoor atmosphere..

Conveniently located 3 miles from downtown St. Petersburg which offers an abundance of shopping, restaurants, theaters and museums. Only 7 miles to Gulf Beaches and 25 miles from Tampa. Check out Facebook page Waterside at Coquina Key.

This property is more like a resort than a condominium development. Easy going with nice people. 24/7 security gate so very safe and exclusive.

About Laura Pearman

Hi, We are Mike and Laura Pearman, the owners of this townhome and we love going to Waterside on long weekends and vacations. We are boaters and love that we can just pull up to the dock and enjoy the beautiful barrier islands and beaches of the St Petersburg area. We live in Tampa about 30 minutes away. We can't be there full time so we want to share our island paradise with you to help defray the costs of ownership. Waterside is a very popular boating community with a mixture of year-rounder's and 'snowbirds' It is a very friendly community.

Laura Pearman purchased this condo in 2011

Amazing summer

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property! We came from Bath, England with our 2 children to spend the month of Aug. in St. Petersburg and we could not have picked a better place. Laura was amazing with help and information prior to our visit and make booking very easy. The condo has great simple decoration and everything was clean and lovely. Both of the pools are wonderful and the grounds surrounding are very nice as well. We met some great people and really enjoyed spending the month here! We would recommend this rental for pretty much anyone!! Thank you so much Laura for all your recommendations and help! This was one of the most pleasant and easy rental experiences we have had!

Snow bird vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 months here and are looking forward to next year's visit. We met some wonderful neighbors and snow-bird neighbors like ourselves. The townhouse is so comfortable it is like home, clean and has what we need. We enjoyed the grill, the pools, the clubhouse and the library. The owners are so nice and help with whatever you need. We love it here and plan on coming many more years to come.

Fantastic property!

We really enjoyed our stay at this townhome. The home was clean and well maintained. It had everything that we needed (dishes, coffee maker, beach towels etc.) The resort was beautiful and felt very secure. We loved the pool and club house.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo from Dec 1 - Mar 31, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The complex is absolutely beautiful with lovely amenities. Two huge pools (one of which is right across the street). Also across the street is the fitness centre which is fully equipped. Next to the pool and the gym is the tennis court, putting green, driving range, horseshoes and shuffleboard. All within a few steps of the condo. What more could you ask for! Well there is more. There is also a beautiful Marina and Club House which also houses the Pub and a library and the fishing pier. The complex grounds are pristine and very quiet. The condo itself is in great condition and very clean. It is well decorated and very comfortable. It is by far the nicest vacation rental we have had in the 7 years we have been coming to Florida. The owners are lovely people and very easy to deal with. The complex is only a 15 minute drive to the beach and 10 minute drive to downtown St Petersburgh, which is such a lovely city. I would not hesitate to recommend this townhouse to anyone. It was a perfect "home away from home".

Our Stay

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was perfectly beautiful. The owner has decorated it with wonderful taste and has made every effort to see that the premises were clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. Since the location was on one of the canals there was very little wildlife visiting, but there is a lake within the complex where cormorants and white pelicans hang out.

The owner was very responsive to any of our concerns and addressed them promptly.

This property is near downtown St. Petersburg, where there are three wonderful museums--The Chihuly, the Dali and the Art Museum, which also has a good restaurant. Another good restuarant for tapas is Cafe Alma.

We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Satisfied vacationeer

  • 5 of 5

I brought my two daughters and three granddaughters to this beautiful waterfront property for a short vacation. The owner was very helpful in addressing all my concerns, especially about safety for my three year old. There was more than enough room and the interior, including all furniture, was in very good taste and in new condition. There's a pool across the street and another less than a block away at the clubhouse. A short drive away are the Dali Museum (a must see), the Museum of Modern Art and Chihuly's museum of extraordinary glasswork. St Petersburg also has numerous restaurants in the downtown area. We all wished we could stay a lot longer.

Not only would I recommend this property to all my friends, but I plan to return

myself in the very near future.
