Spring Cleaning and New Home Dreaming

By | February 25th, 2017|Activities-Events, Residents, Sales|Comments Off on Spring Cleaning and New Home Dreaming

Ah, spring! That time of year when our thoughts turn to renewal, leprechauns, Easter eggs, new beginnings, and baseball.

For our snowbird residents at Americana Cove, spring can be bittersweet as it means cleaning up, packing up, saying goodbye to good friends, and sometimes selling or buying a new place before heading back north.

Have you been contemplating making a purchase? Do you have your new home checklist ready? What are your “must haves” in a winter home or permanent retirement place?

At Americana Cove, we are an active adult community with 23 organized clubs and activities. There is some type of lunch, dinner, dance, or cook-out nearly every week during high season featuring live entertainment by local musicians. These events have a modest cost, and some are completely free of charge.

Not into all that clubby stuff? Perhaps you’d rather relax at our new state-of-the-art swimming pool and tiki hut while sipping an adult beverage and enjoying the sights of manatees and the occasional dolphin swimming through our lake and canals.

Whether you are into partying and mixing in, or keeping it low key and cocooning, Americana Cove has what you want.

What about what you need? In addition to the social activities and nice facilities, Americana Cove is resident-owned and in good financial shape. You can purchase here with the confidence of knowing your investment is a smart one.

If you’re ready to grab your own little piece of paradise, talk to our sales staff. We have several available sites awaiting your new custom manufactured home, homes for resale, and homes for rent. What are you waiting for?!

Community of the Year!

By | January 6th, 2017|MAROA, Residents|Comments Off on Community of the Year!

Welcome Home!

What a way to start the new year! I recently had the pleasure of attending a Community Association Institute (CAI) breakfast with our board members to accept a “Community of the Year” award for our region. We were one of only three communities recognized, so when one considers the number of co-op and condo communities with which we compete, this is an attractive feather in the Americana Cove cap! Our region covers the geographic area of Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties, with a total population of nearly 2.5 million people.

CAI Member and Americana Cove Staff & Board   Manager Jane Jarlenski, & Board of Directors: Nan Olney, Tom Wallace, Beverly Baker, Dave Casey and Chuck MacDonald.

We were recognized for efficient management of our major infrastructure upgrades, quality of amenities, financial stability, and vendor/residential testimonials. If you are already a resident here, you know what a gem we have in this community. If you are considering making a move to Florida, whether permanent or seasonal snowbird, this is just one more reason to put Americana Cove at the very top of your new home shopping list.

Leaving winter behind

By | November 26th, 2016|MAROA, Sales, Weather|Comments Off on Leaving winter behind


Trailer Park.  What comes to mind when you hear or read those words?  If you’re like me, chances are the mental images are not the best, so when I heard we were going to look at property in a mobile home park, I was not enthused!  That was in 2001.

Fast forward to the present.  If anyone told me that I would not only  come to love my community, but end up spending more than half the year here, I would’ve called them crazy!

I grew up in a northern climate and as much as I still love the seasonal changes, the idea of leaving behind the most brutal parts of winter has great appeal.  No more shoveling.  No more frozen gutters. No more icy roads.  If you find yourself longing for sunshine, sand, and the salty rim of a margarita rather than heavy coats, boots, and salty roads, I urge you to check out Americana Cove.

This community has it all.  Located in St. Petersburg on a canal system that feeds into Tampa Bay, this active 55+ adult community boasts myriad clubs and activities, and is just a short drive from great restaurants, shopping, downtown St. Pete, downtown Tampa, and Gulf beaches.  If you like to explore, the “Nature Coast”, “Culture Coast”, and Disney attractions are great day trips.

We have many sites available for your new custom home as well as homes for re-sale.  Our on-site sales team offers community tours, will answer any questions, and will walk you through the entire purchase process.  You’d be amazed at the styles and finishes available in modern mobile homes.  Not ready to purchase just yet?  Come and rent for two months and “try it on for size”. This is not your grandfather’s trailer park!  Come see Americana Cove for yourself.
