Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I come to Florida every winter for vacation. We stay at different places each time and I must say the condo at The 5th Wave was the nicest. I always read the previous renters statements and they were all right by saying the condo was a nice place to stay. It had everything we needed and it was close to all the places we like to hang out. Next time we come to Florida I wouldn't mind staying here again.. Thank you Jenee and Vic for a great vacation. Take care Paul & Kristi Manley Davenport Ia.

Our Go To place for St. Pete Beach!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with this condo; perfect size for my husband and I. The condo is very clean, comfortable, equipped with everything you need and in a good location. This is a smaller condominium complex (which we loved) with a nice pool in the center. The beach is at the end of the street, without crossing any busy streets. Restaurants, bars, shops all within walking distance. Everyone at the complex was very friendly and we truly enjoyed our time.

Thank you! :)

5th Wave

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the condo was wonderful. Loved the bright and beachy decor. I would suggest you supply more kitchen towels and cleaning supplies.

We were very disappointed with the returning reservation policy. Places we've stayed in the past always gave us the option to reserve the same time for the next year, you did not.

Owner's Response: Thank you for comments regarding your stay at The 5th Wave Condo. We will certainly get more kitchen towels for guest use. The cleaning supplies were fully stocked in January so I am not sure what was still needed but we will certainly check this out. Regarding a returning stay; another returning guest rented and placed a deposit for March 2018 prior to your request for the same time frame. The condo is reserved on a first-come first-serve basis, as we feel this is fair for all guests.

Great owner and nice location

  • 5 of 5

Condo #8 was (unexpectedly) under renovation during the time we were booked to stay there; however, Jenee very kindly arranged for us to stay in another condo in the same complex, which worked out nicely for us. The owner seems to be professional in every way.

The complex itself is simple, but nicely kept up and enjoyable. The pool is located in the center , surrounded by the condo units, so is blocked off from the wind, and therefore comfortable for sun tanning even during the Jan/Feb days we were there. The pool is heated (temps between 82-86 when we were there), so comfortable for swimming even in winter. We enjoyed chatting with the other guests around the pool -- mostly retirees who come down every winter as repeat guests, but there were some families as well.

We walked down to the beach once or twice every day. It is a short (5 min.) and pleasant walk. We enjoyed going down to watch the sunsets every evening, and strolling through a nice little seaside garden that's located to the right when you arrive at the beach -- down by Blind Man's Pass. It's tended by a nice French Canadian who designed it 30 years ago.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing The Waves Condo complex. The 5th Wave Condo (Waves 5) suffered a water leak due to a pipe bursting in the walls so we were unable to accommodate guests for two weeks. We vow to take care of our guests so we searched hard to find them an upgrade in accommodations with no additional cost due to the change in condos for their reservation. It worked out well and we are happy that we could make our guests happy!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall enjoyed our stay and had no issues with the condo or those residing within the complex. Thank you Jennee for being accommodating to our needs. Would definitely elect to stay at the same location next time we visit St Pete Beach
