About the property

1 BR / 1 Ba ground floor corner-unit cozy tropical condo; perfect for couple

Summer is over, schools are in session, it's back to work after summer vacation, but is the best time to head down to Florida for some R&R at the beach with our discounted fall rates! Did you know that St Pete Beach ranked #7 in the top 25 beaches in the US and the world! Book your St Pete Beach vacation now and see why!

The 5th Wave at The Waves underwent a face-lift 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 to the beach.

The Waves is a small two story, 19-unit security-gated complex located just over a block to the beach at 600 71st Ave in the northern tip of St. Pete Beach. Convenient assigned parking for two in space #5 is available but who needs a car when you are walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants of all cuisines, and right around the corner from the historic Cory Avenue shopping district.

Whether you are relaxing in your living area or preparing something to eat in the fully equipped kitchen, you can gaze outside your window at the tropical pool with a brick paver patio and complete with grill and shower.

After a day at the beach or the pool, retreat to your vacation condo to have some quiet time on your computer using our free Wii Fi or watch a show or movie on one of the two wall mounted flat screen TVs. Maybe you want to have a cool drink or cook a meal while listening to some tunes on the small stereo with CD player in the living area. The condo is fully stocked with cookware in the kitchen, a dishwasher, cabinet mounted microwave, disposal, full size range and oven, and refrigerator with water dispenser. Stay comfortable from the ever changing Florida weather with central heat and air conditioning. There is plenty of storage space in the bedroom, which has a separate linen closet as well as a large walk-in closet for your belongings as well as a beach cart, small cooler, 2 beach chairs, and 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 was the third time we stayed at the 5th Wade and it was great...Again!! Even though the probability of rain were very high, the weather cooperated and it never rained when we were at the beach. We love this condo! The owner Jenee is very nice and is available all the time to help you with any question. Thanks, again Jenee. Hopefully we'll see you next year!!!

Immaculate condo within walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops.

  • 5 of 5

This property is as advertised. Very clean and filled with everyday items that you might have forgotten. Pool is steps from the front door. The area was very quiet, great for that relaxing stay. Would definitely recommend this condo and look forward to staying again in the future!

Great Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful stay at the condo. It was beautifully furnished and within close proximity to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive to e-mails.

Our only suggestion would be to have a few more everyday items in the kitchen (coffee filters, salt/pepper, cooking spray, etc...). We made several trips to the store for items which were always provided in our previous VRBO rentals.
