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

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!

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!

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!

My friend and I stayed at the 5th Wave over Memorial Weekend. The condo is very cozy, nicely decorated and contains everything you need for a weekend at the beach. The pool is right outside your front door along with a grill. The beach was literally a block and a half away, which was perfect because many many people were having trouble finding beach parking. The walls are a little thin, but overall we had a wonderful stay. The owner was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early. We'd definitely stay again!!!

Our stay at the 5th Wave

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the 5th Wave. The condo was tastefully decorated and everything we needed for our 1 month stay was available. The beach, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, etc were all within walking distance. We hope to return to St. Petes next year and hopefully will stay at the Waves again. Thank you for a great holiday experience.

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! :)
