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 owner and nice location

  • 5 of 5

Condo #8 was (unexpectedly) under renovation during the time we were booked to stay there; however, Jenee very kindly arranged for us to stay in another condo in the same complex, which worked out nicely for us. The owner seems to be professional in every way.

The complex itself is simple, but nicely kept up and enjoyable. The pool is located in the center , surrounded by the condo units, so is blocked off from the wind, and therefore comfortable for sun tanning even during the Jan/Feb days we were there. The pool is heated (temps between 82-86 when we were there), so comfortable for swimming even in winter. We enjoyed chatting with the other guests around the pool -- mostly retirees who come down every winter as repeat guests, but there were some families as well.

We walked down to the beach once or twice every day. It is a short (5 min.) and pleasant walk. We enjoyed going down to watch the sunsets every evening, and strolling through a nice little seaside garden that's located to the right when you arrive at the beach -- down by Blind Man's Pass. It's tended by a nice French Canadian who designed it 30 years ago.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing The Waves Condo complex. The 5th Wave Condo (Waves 5) suffered a water leak due to a pipe bursting in the walls so we were unable to accommodate guests for two weeks. We vow to take care of our guests so we searched hard to find them an upgrade in accommodations with no additional cost due to the change in condos for their reservation. It worked out well and we are happy that we could make our guests happy!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall enjoyed our stay and had no issues with the condo or those residing within the complex. Thank you Jennee for being accommodating to our needs. Would definitely elect to stay at the same location next time we visit St Pete Beach

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!
