About the property

1BR / 1BA ground floor corner-unit condo perfect for couples

Don't miss a beautiful beach weekend this Fall because the Tampa Bay area had no problem with the hurricanes that so sadly brought devastation to many Caribbean islands, Puerto Rico, and South Florida.

The 5th Wave at The Waves underwent a facelift in January 2017 with new paint, plumbing fixtures, bathroom vanity, and furniture! This cozy little one bedroom, one bath condo located on the ground floor corner-unit is perfect for a couple and just over a block walk to the beach.

The Waves Condominiums is a small 19-unit security-gated complex located near the beach at 600 71st Ave in the northern tip of St. Pete Beach and right around the corner from the historic Cory Avenue shopping district. Gaze outside your kitchen or living room window to a tropical pool with a brick paver patio complete with grill and shower. Assigned parking for two is available, but you won't need a car as you are within walking distance to shops, restaurants of all cuisines, and of course the beach!

The condo is equipped with free Wii Fi, two wall mounted flat screen TVs, and a small stereo with CD player. Furnished and fully stocked with linens, cookware in the kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, disposal, full size range and oven, refrigerator with water dispenser, central heat and a/c, and large walk-in closet with beach supplies.

Area: Quiet, uncrowded, residential, North corner of St. Pete Beach. Fifteen minutes to downtown St. Pete, Fort De Soto Park, thirty minutes to Tampa and ninety minutes to Orlando and Disney Attractions.

This condo is a ground floor, corner unit, and is the closest to parking, pool, laundry and to the beach! It is perfect for a variety of visitors....couples, young or elderly, as there are no stairs to climb. We even have a beach wagon to transport your supplies on the short walk to the beach! Like sports....less than 30 minutes to a Tampa Bay Bucs game, NY Yankees training, Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey, and the St. Pete Devil Rays!

This Condo is adorable, up to date and all it's advertised to be

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves while staying at the 5th Wave. The Condo is approximately a block and a half from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and some shops. The condo has everything you need to bring to the beach so not to worry about packing anything but your swimsuit. We felt very comfortable while there and will definitely recommend it to others.

Relaxing Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and decorated well. Located walking distance to everything . Nice touch having beach items to use. We relaxed watching sunset, collected shells & The water was perfect. The pool is nice way to have a night swim. The area is quiet and safe. We went to the Sunken Gardens, Wagonwheel Flea mkt and USF Botanical Gardens. This trip was what we needed to unwind and enjoy the simple life. Thank you for sharing your condo.

Close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We wanted an easy walk to the beach and this place delivered on that promise. The bed was comfortable, which was a huge relief! There is a Publix just down the road where we got all our groceries on the first day and returned there for a few more things as needed. All the beach chairs, umbrella, towels, carts, etc we needed were available, which was ideal since we arrived by air.

Could have used a few more paper products like toilet paper and tissues - we were pretty much out of everything after only a week long stay. Also since the condo is on the ground floor, there is almost no privacy when the blinds are open. The pool is on one side and the parking lot is on the other, and people walk by constantly. It was a shame that we couldn't let the natural light in without feeling exposed, but it did help keep things cool inside. The kitchen is pretty cramped to work in, so don't expect to cook any elaborate meals, but it was fine for our needs - coffee, cereal, and a few simple dinners to save on restaurant bills. Everything was clean and the decor was lovely.

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guests taking the time to write a review; thank you. We are happy you liked our recently renovated condo with updated decor. We do advertise that the condo is ground floor across from the pool so you will see guests outside the door or window in the pool area. Each of the back of the units at the Waves, except for the two three-bedroom condos, are on the parking lot side. Regarding paper products; the housekeepers typically provide paper products for the first 5-7 days realizing that guests pick up their own along with their groceries. I will certainly make sure our housekeepers provide supplies for one week. Thank you very much for your input!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for almost 2 weeks and had a great time. My boyfriend and I travel to Florida every summer and stay somewhere different every time. I have to say the place was perfect for our needs. It was close to the beach and provided everything we needed. It definitely met and exceeded our expectations, so thanks for helping us have another great and relaxing vacation! We will definitely consider coming back next year!

Wonderful beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful space. Jenne and Vic were accommodating from the start. The condo is perfect. A nice spot if you are looking to be somewhere quiet with easy access to the beach, pool and some beach restaurants. The added touches of home and things like beach chairs is more than appreciated, especially when flying! Thank you for making everything simple and giving us a great first vacation as a family. We are already planning our next trip back! PS: future visitors if you walk to Woody's waterfront you might be lucky enough to enjoy the breeze, a cocktail and some dolphins in the cove. Cheers!
