Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great 4th of July weekend after leaving our daughter with grandparents. It's a nice, cozy condo with a short walk to the beautiful, never crowded beach (even on a holiday weekend!). Since we flew in, bringing beach gear just wasn't an option. But they had camping/beach chairs, an umbrella, toys (if you bring your kiddos) and even a beach cart to haul everything back and forth. The condo is situated right in front of the pool, you so you do get a little noise, but only until 9 or 10 pm when the pool shuts down. It's very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. as St. Pete Beach is just not that big of a place. If you're coming in the summer, make sure you bring or buy a sunshade for your car. There's no carport. The $9 that we spent at the hardware store on one was the best money we spent on our trip. Jenee was extremely responsive to any questions I had before, and during, the trip. You can't ask for a better owner. Overall, it was a great vacation.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to getaway to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. The condo was perfect for us. It was very quiet despite the children who were there. Guests who were at the pool were all very friendly. We were within walking distance to the beach. The sunsets on the beach are simply gorgeous. I'd recommend this condo to any couple who wants to getaway to a very quiet and enjoyable place. We are hoping to return to Jenalee's condo sometime in the future!

We went to Guy Harvey's for our anniversary dinner and had an excellent dinner!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I are just come back from staying at the waves for a long weekend and cannot wait to go back! The condo is in a great location surrounded by shops, restaurants and local bars. Only a block away from the beach with a beautiful view of sunsets made the stay just what we were looking for. Jenee was great to work with (as this was our first time using VRBO) and I look forward to our next trip down!

Couldn't find a better place to vacation in St. Pete than The Fifth Wave!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed from Monday 4/4/16 to Tues 4/12/16. Better than a 5 star hotel would have been, a clean, cozy quiet place with all the amenities. 1 1/2 short blocks walk to beach, quiet pool right outside our kitchen window. Very comfortable king sized bed. Restaurants galore within walking distance, Publix supermarket, CVS, Dollar Store in a shopping center a short drive away. We even walked a mile or so to play miniature golf for a change of pace and to work off some of the terrific food we had. A perfect location, we didn't use the car for 3 days. Everything we needed was there: coolers for sodas, beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels and wagons to pull all to the beach. Would highly recommend a stay at the FIfth Wave if you are looking for a great place in St. Pete! This was our first time using VRBO. I called and spoke with Jenee (the owner) before we left NY and she was very helpful. When I had a question or two afterwards, I emailed her through VRBO. She answered in a matter of hours, even though one was on Easter Sunday. You couldn't find a better place to stay in St.Pete than The Fifth Wave!

Very enjoyable. Everything we were interested in was walking distance. We enjoyed the beach and sunset. Pool was tremendous and well kept as surroundings around the pool. Kitchen very well stocked as the entire condo; very clean and organized. We wish to return next year.
