Location is everything and it's just minutes from downtown St. Pete, St.Pete's Beaches, Anna Maria Island, Tampa, Bradenton, and Sarasota. It's close enough to be part of the city, but just far enough to detach from it, which is one of the many things the residents of Bay Colony enjoy the most. Come see for yourself, it won't last long!
