Most Wonderful Holiday Home with Best Water Views

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four (2 teens) we spent a fabulous week here after a busier week in Orlando. The accommodation was perfect in every way. The view of the bay and sitting out on the balcony was incredible. After 4 days of watching out for dolphin sightings we were treated to 3 of them swimming right up to our dock. I used the gym 4 mornings as its straight over the road. We used both pools, preferring the one on the bayside with the amazing views. Felt very safe in the gated complex. Had a hire car so ate out in Downtown st Petes or on the beach. Hope to return some day! Communication with the owner Lydia was easy. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Our "beautiful" vacation at Waterside, Coquina Key

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just recently had 18 wonderful days in Lydia's condo at Waterside Blue, Coquina Key.

The condo was very clean, kitchen was well stocked & beds were very comfortable. The condo is on the second floor which gave us a good view of the water while watching all the seabirds. We also seen some Dolphins, stingrays & we think a manetee all from the balcony.

This is a gated community which made us feel very safe & security were always seen daily doing their checks.

As well, we never as much as seen a gum wrapper on any of the grounds. The two pools & public bathrooms are very clean. The clubhouse is a place to go every night if you wished as they always have something on each night. I.e live music and Taco Night.

We walked every morning on the walking trails - I think there must be at least 5 Millie's of trails along the waterways.

We also enjoyed the dock where we'd sit some nights & watch the moon & several nights watched lightening on the opposite site of Tampa Bay - beautiful!!

We also didn't feel too far away from grocery stores, Ellenton Outlet Stores, the beach ( which Lydia had chairs, cooler, umbrellas, beach towels, etc. for us to use) & downtown St. Pete's.

This was exactly the type of holiday we wanted this year & Lydia's Condo at Coquina Key gave it to us & more. I'm sure we will return!!!!

I do what I can for every guest to feel welcome, comfortable, and enjoy their hard earned vacation, while at Waterside Blue. The beauty of the condo is the views, and that its God's given. I am very thankful for that!

A lovely comfortable condo by the waterside.

  • 4 of 5

I was visiting from the UK and spent a month in Lydia's condo in the gated Waterside complex at Coquina Key. The booking/payment process was simple with Lydia responding promptly to my emails. She also kindly contacted me after my arrival to check that everything was satisfactory.

The property was clean & well maintained, as was the Waterside complex & its facilities.

Waterside is located a short 10 to15 minute drive from downtown St Petersburg with its many good waterfront restaurants & bars. St Pete's beautiful beach on the gulf is also an easy 20 minutes drive away away.

I can whole heartedly recommend this property to people considering a stay in the St Petersburg area.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

While looking for a southern escape from our brutal winter, I was most fortunate to find Watersite Blue. It is a beautifully appointed condominium with all the amenities - the best I have ever experienced. It is situated in a gated community which includes two swimming pools, an outdoor hot tub, and a yacht club with a Happy Hour bar, all available for property owners and renters. The condo overlooks a picturesque bay and my wife and I spent many delightful hours watching the birds and aquatic wildlife from the balcony. The owner is very pleasant, responsive and accommodating. We are very much looking forward to returning in the not-too-distant future and I guarantee, that if you choose to to spend some time there, you will not be disappointed.

A Little Utopia!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Lydia’s condo for the month of January. Each room is very nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with everything needed for preparing meals. The balcony overlooks a beautiful bayou that is teeming with wildlife. It’s perfect for viewing those beautiful sunsets with a nice glass of wine. We were treated to dolphins surfacing just off the balcony daily and to an Osprey eating his sushi breakfast on a post just a few yards away. Waterside south has two swimming pools just a short walk from the condo. The laundry and a well-equipped workout room are just across the parking lot. A kayak launch is also located nearby. There’s a nice bar upstairs in the clubhouse, which is a great place to meet friends for cocktails in the evening. The condo location is only 4 miles from downtown St. Petersburg and convenient for making day-trips to many south Florida attractions. We rode our bicycles to St. Pete on several occasions, biking around town and Coffee Pot Bayou. Lydia is the ideal landlady, always eager to help. She even left a bottle of champagne in the frig for us! We will definitely stay here again in the future and highly recommend it for anyone visiting the St. Petersburg area.
