If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation home to enjoy warm weather, swimming in a newly constructed in ground pool, and fishing off of the dock then this is the place for you!

This single family home offers three nicely appointed bedrooms, two updated bathrooms, an updated eat-in kitchen, living area, and an enclosed sun room.

The Coquina Getaway is ideal for the vacationer looking to relax by the pool, explore the museums, shops, and restaurants of Downtown St Petersburg or take the very short drive to the beaches. This home does tolerate parties or guests who are unable to comply with the house rules. Because this home is located in a quiet family neighborhood on the water, guests are expected to be respectful of surrounding neighbors as noise carries easily on the water. Smoking NOT permitted on the property. This rental does not include use of the boat.

***Preference given to guests wishing to stay 30 nights or more due to local housing ordinances.***

Our rental is responsibly managed by a local contact to assist with your arrival, departure, and questions throughout your stay.

All guests are subject to a guest agreement, guest registration form, and MUST provide a valid driver's license or state issued ID. Forms MUST be completed entirely in order to secure each reservation.

About Terry K.

My wife and I enjoying owning the Coquina Getaway as our vacation home. We enjoy using it ourselves and hope you will find it as relaxing as we do.

Terry K. purchased this house in 2005

Why Terry K. chose St Petersburg

The Coquina Getaway is perfectly situated for us. Our home sits on a canal with views and access to Tampa Bay within 100 yards. We enjoy Downtown St Petersburg being just a short car ride or even a bike ride away. The beach is within 10-15 minutes so we are close to everything we need while on vacation.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located on a saltwater canal just 100 yards from Tampa Bay. Guests may use our kayaks and explore the surrounding waters of the canal and Tampa Bay. We are close to Downtown St Petersburg and the Gulf beaches so we encourage you to explore the beaches, restaurants, shops, and museums.

Loved our house on the canal in Coquina Key

  • 4 of 5

I'm giving this a good rating with reservations. I have noticed other rentals through VRBO and this one have cheap bed linens. I suspect it is not the owner of the rental but VRBO that makes these linens available. As soon as I was able I went to a department store and bought proper bed linen. Other than that we were happy with our accommodations and would like to stay there again (but this time we will bring our own sheets for the beds).

A good base for exploring St Petersburg!!

  • 4 of 5

Coquina Getaway was a nice comfortable vacation place for me and my wife. It was our first visit to St Petersburg. The premises and furnishings were as shown in the photos. The agent for the owner, who lived next door, was very helpful. The kitchen and the two bathrooms had recently been completely updated and were well supplied with utensils, towels, paper products, etc. The landscaping, especially the back yard bordering on the canal, was very attractive. The pool was well maintained and surrounded with a child-proof safety screen. A manatee passed us as we sat on the seawall, and one big heron in particular came to help me fish whenever I tossed out a line. There was a pair of nesting ospreys in the tree across the street. We took daily walks along Beach Drive and the neighbors we passed were friendly and waved at us. A local nature preserve with beautiful walking trails, Boyd Hill, was only a few miles away. We also appreciated the location in southeastern St Petersburg. A trip into downtown St Petersburg was always a breeze and traffic was never a problem, no matter the time of day. The downtown area boasts some beautiful water front parks and several miles of walking paths along Tampa Bay. There are also many points of interest, museums, a weekend farmer’s market and restaurants and drinking establishments and marinas in the downtown area. Central Avenue was easily accessible as was Fort DeSoto, a beautiful county park which affords many miles of beautiful beaches. We saw dolphins every time we visited the park.

A nice retreat.

  • 5 of 5

My family & I visited our parents for Thanksgiving 2015. My father was very sick and I wanted to ease the burden of the Thanksgiving meal. I did a lot of searching for a place with just the right kitchen to cook the meal. The kitchen was nice & spacious with plenty of counter space. The meal was terrific. The view of Tampa Bay, the canal, pool (though it was a bit chilly in Nov.), and use of the SUPs & kayaks really made it special. The house was clean and had plenty of room. Close to downtown.

Due to my father's illness we had to extend our trip at last minute. Sarah & Terry were very kind to help us out with our last minute planning. Sarah was also great when we had a slight power outage on Thanksgiving. Just a tip....don't run a blow dryer while the AC is running.

I would definitely rent this property for my next trip to St. Petersburg. Thank you Sarah & Terry

Freundliche Nachbarn

Das Haus war sauber und wie auf den Bildern

Die Betten leider total unbequem das manche auf die Couch und Boden auswichen
