Just Looking, Saint Petersburg, FL
We have lived at Waterside at Coquina Key happily for three years. We have never had a problem. There is a guard at the gate 24/7. You have to show ID to get in. There is a roving guard on the property 24/7 as well as security cameras. The neighborhood of Coquina Key Island has a neighborhood crime watch. I am from NYC, lived there all my life, I know what a bad neighborhood is, I assure you. I feel safe here at the complex and in the surrounding neighborhood. In 3 years of living here I have yet to hear a police siren, that is the truth. The community is becoming more established and attracting more mature and retired people. The foreclosures that exist here are no more than any other area in hard hit Florida. We have many neighbors that have been here as long as or longer than us. The island of Coquina Key, people are buying homes and fixing them up. There are many upscale houses here as well. There are always children playing outside on the island (only a handful of children are living at Waterside right now). Also the surrounding area, Sunrise drive, Bahama Shores, etc. are very nice. The views at Waterside are spectacular! And it is quiet.
