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!

Great property and management

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jenee and Vic's condo for a couple of weeks during December 2017. The condo was gorgeous! we could not have asked for anything more. The apartment is clean, well-appointed and maintained, plus it is located very close to the beach. The host was very helpful and responsive during my trip. We would definitely love to stay at this place again during my return trip.

Fabulous! !!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our condo, exactly as detailed and in a great location. We've visited St.Pete several times and find something new every time. We don't drive whilst away as we like to walk and use public transport. Trolley bus is great value and a good way to see the coastline. Loads of restaurants in the area, so many to choose from, so little time! The Waves condo was very well kept, we saw the gardener, cleaner and pool man during our stay. Clean, bright,well equipped condo. Would definitelymake a return booking. Owners very prompt in dealing with our booking, 5 star service. Thank you.

A great escape

  • 4 of 5

The condo overall was really nice. Everything was supplied and lived up to the description. The reason for not giving a full 5 stars was only for the water pressure in the shower, it is really weak, to the point I could not wash my hair. I do have long, thick hair, but even to just rinse soap it was a struggle. May just need a new shower head. This is my only complaint on this adorable rental. One other thing, the beach that is walking distance up the road is washed away due to Irma, I was shocked at this. It however is under full restoration currently, you can not even access it near the condo due to the construction and need to walk about a half mile down Gulf Boulevard to regain access to a much busier beach. Despite both of these things, I would still book here again. The owner was very nice and easy to work with.

The 5th Wave Condo review

  • 5 of 5

A quiet complex, with great location to the beach, shops and restaurants. The pool was well maintained. Convient parking. Very, very clean condo.

Note: The available umbrella would not lock in the open position, needs to be replaced. Also, the ice machine was making noise and seemed to be jammed with ice cubes. We shut it off for a few days, turned it back on and it only made a small amount of cubes for our remaining time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we will have someone take a look at that icemaker. Hope to see you back one day!

Beautiful condo located a block and a half from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a great find. It is immaculate and looks newly decorated. The pool is just steps outside your door. Jenee was a wonderful host and answered any questions we had promptly. The unit has Beach chairs, an umbrella and anything else you may need for a day at the beach. We would definitely rent again.
