This short-term rental property was recently renovated to include an expanded full kitchen, lots of coastal decor, and a great butcher block island as well. The entire house / condo is yours; the central location is great, allowing for you to be just minutes from the St Pete beaches and also minutes from downtown St. Petersburg.

Located on its own small island, Coquina Key- is known as “the friendly island”. The entire complex is surrounded by water, and because of its unique location, there are views of both Tampa Bay, and the Gulf & Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

The island is conveniently located on the bay side of Florida’s gulf coast. The location is truly unique.

Guest Access 

The building entry door is semi-private, leading to only 4 units total. Two of the units are upstairs so your entry hallway downstairs is shared with only one other downstairs unit. It’s really very nice and private. 

You’ll have access to the unit using a coded key panel on the door.

Inside the unit you’ll find the access key that’ll allow you into the pool areas (there are 2), as well as the large laundry room.


The 24-hour manned gated community features 2 pools, a beautiful clubhouse with a library and billiards/pool table, as well as an upstairs bar, and occasional food offerings. The clubhouse overlooks the water (great photo spots here!), has a long pier with seating areas, and has corn hole sets and a giant Connect 4 set for play. 

The large swimming pool here by the clubhouse (just a short walk from the unit) has lots of seating and overlooks the water. 

There’s also a beach volleyball court, tennis court, basketball court, gym, pickleball courts, and shuffleboard. 

If you’re driving an electric vehicle, you can find a charger over by the laundry facility and gym building.


The HOA will need a copy of a driver’s license or Passport for ALL adults who will be guests so that everyone can be registered and allowed entry at the manned gate.

They also require a signed addendum which I’ve uploaded or can email you

With over 2400 onine reviews on touristwire.com, the Saturday morning market may be the best St. Petersburg activity–walk down the tree-lined streets and visit with over 130 vendors showcasing artisan foods and handmade crafts. Also enjoy live music from local bands and musicians

Enjoy homes and historic architecture in Historic Northeast

The historic Old Northeast district abuts downtown, and claims nearly 3,000 historic buildings within its boundaries. It also has a pleasant shopping district, restaurants and a number of city landmarks. Housing is a mix of Mediterranean and bungalow styles in a lushly green setting rife with jacarandas, pines, palms, and magnolias.

Brick streets and granite curbs add to the charm of the area, which also includes North Shore Park to the east, with its swimming, biking, walking, and playing areas as well as a pretty white sand beach. The area also borders Coffee Pot Bay, famous for its resident manatees. The Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum is another bucolic addition to the community. The Palladium Theater presents eclectic performances in a former church also in the area. The St. Petersburg transit system provides bus service through the neighborhood, and the busy urban nightlife of downtown is just minutes away.

Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach have earned themselves spots lists published by Trip Advisor, USA Today, and the Travel Channel.

Treasure Island

Treasure island is located on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.

Per Wikipedia:

The area of Treasure Island was originally settled in small communities by the Tocobaga around 300 CE. The Timucua traded with other Native American tribes in the area until the arrival of Pánfilo de Narváez in 1528. De Narváez decimated the indigenous people before leaving the area in search of gold.

Treasure Island got its name early in the 20th century, after several property owners attempted to boost sales of the properties being developed on the island by first burying and then pretending to discover a couple of wooden chests on the beach around 1915. After claiming the chests were filled with treasure, the news of the discovery quickly spread and people began calling the island Treasure Island.

With an elevation of only three feet, the Great Gale of 1848 carved out John’s Pass on the island’s north end and split off two smaller islands, called the Isle of Palms and Isle of Capri.

Treasure Island saw a surge in residential and hotel construction following World War II through the 1950s. The real estate used in these ventures often consisted of fill from dredged material; that is, artificial extensions of the land were created, which were usually designed for convenient access to navigable waterways.

Treasure Island today has a thriving bar and restaurant scene in its downtown.


Kayaking and Boating and Fishing are my personal favorites.

When staying at our Airbnb St Petersburg Fl condo, feel free to use the crab trap and fishing poles on the back porch (check to see if it’s crab season).



Tampa Bay Rays

From visitstpeteclearwater website “Two Major League baseball teams hold their spring training games in the St. Pete/Clearwater area during March each year. The Philadelphia Phillies play at BayCare Park in Clearwater, and the Toronto Blue Jays play at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, just north of Clearwater. A little farther afield (pun intended), several teams prepare for Opening Day less than an hour away, including the New York Yankees (Tampa), Pittsburgh Pirates (Bradenton), Baltimore Orioles (Sarasota), Detroit Tigers (Lakeland) and Atlanta Braves (North Port). With careful planning, you can embark on a road trip from St. Pete to see all 15 Grapefruit League teams play across Florida.”
