Guestbook comments from the owner

Jenee, What an adorable place, so well equipped!!! We felt so safe with the locked entry into the complex! Once inside the well-equipped unit we needed nothing! First day we spent at the pool as the weather was a little iffy. Next two days the weather was PERFECT! We found carts, ice chest, beach mats and more in the closet. This made it so easy for the short walk the beach. The bed was so comfy, the shower and bath we great, the kitchen had anything and everything we needed! Will be back – will tell everyone about it!!!! Thanks again, Cindy and Christy

PS Jenee made sure we had directions and was available if needed anything too!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to getaway to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. The condo was perfect for us. It was very quiet despite the children who were there. Guests who were at the pool were all very friendly. We were within walking distance to the beach. The sunsets on the beach are simply gorgeous. I'd recommend this condo to any couple who wants to getaway to a very quiet and enjoyable place. We are hoping to return to Jenalee's condo sometime in the future!

We went to Guy Harvey's for our anniversary dinner and had an excellent dinner!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I are just come back from staying at the waves for a long weekend and cannot wait to go back! The condo is in a great location surrounded by shops, restaurants and local bars. Only a block away from the beach with a beautiful view of sunsets made the stay just what we were looking for. Jenee was great to work with (as this was our first time using VRBO) and I look forward to our next trip down!

Couldn't find a better place to vacation in St. Pete than The Fifth Wave!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed from Monday 4/4/16 to Tues 4/12/16. Better than a 5 star hotel would have been, a clean, cozy quiet place with all the amenities. 1 1/2 short blocks walk to beach, quiet pool right outside our kitchen window. Very comfortable king sized bed. Restaurants galore within walking distance, Publix supermarket, CVS, Dollar Store in a shopping center a short drive away. We even walked a mile or so to play miniature golf for a change of pace and to work off some of the terrific food we had. A perfect location, we didn't use the car for 3 days. Everything we needed was there: coolers for sodas, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and wagons to pull all to the beach. Would highly recommend a stay at the FIfth Wave if you are looking for a great place in St. Pete! This was our first time using VRBO. I called and spoke with Jenee (the owner) before we left NY and she was very helpful. When I had a question or two afterwards, I emailed her through VRBO. She answered in a matter of hours, even though one was on Easter Sunday. You couldn't find a better place to stay in St.Pete than The Fifth Wave!

Very enjoyable. Everything we were interested in was walking distance. We enjoyed the beach and sunset. Pool was tremendous and well kept as surroundings around the pool. Kitchen very well stocked as the entire condo; very clean and organized. We wish to return next year.

Nice but further from beach than led to believe

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo super grounds but long walk to a sorry public beach overall a bust

  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2015
  • Stayed: Nov 2015
  • Source: Vacation Rentals, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: On a positive note, I am happy that the guest felt this vacation condo was nice. Regarding the long walk to the beach; the condo is correctly advertised to be just over one block to the beach and it is measured to be 1.5 blocks to the beach. It takes 3-4 minutes to get to the sand from the condo front door depending on age and activity level of the individual, which is sometimes less than catching an elevator and getting on the beach from a high rise located directly on the beach. Upham Beach, is a quiet beach at the northern point of St. Pete Beach and is perfect for couples or families with small children since it is very quiet. There is no "boardwalk" or activities other than beach volleyball however there are rentals everywhere for those guests wanting more activities. This is actually the first ever "less than above average" review of this vacation condo, but I am truly sorry this guest had a bad time and hope they find a choice that suits them better next time.
