About the property

1BR / 1BA ground floor corner-unit condo perfect for couples

Get some relaxation at the beach rather than face the Black Friday and holiday shopping crowds. You deserve it! The 5th Wave at The Waves underwent a facelift 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

Relaxing Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and decorated well. Located walking distance to everything . Nice touch having beach items to use. We relaxed watching sunset, collected shells & The water was perfect. The pool is nice way to have a night swim. The area is quiet and safe. We went to the Sunken Gardens, Wagonwheel Flea mkt and USF Botanical Gardens. This trip was what we needed to unwind and enjoy the simple life. Thank you for sharing your condo.
