Just what we were looking for!

Review submitted: August 8, 2014   Date of arrival: July 31, 2014

Our stay at the condo exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed being so close to the beach but away from the crowds. The only issue that we had was the air conditioner was not working but Jenee had someone out promptly to fix it. While there we went to Kissin Cuzzin's which is on 34th St in St. Petersburg (not too far from Walmart) for breakfast. OMG, it was delish! Be prepared to wait because they were busy. For dinner one night, we went to Crabby Bills. It was really good. Upon recommendation from one of the tenants/owners of another condo, we drove down to Pass-a-grille to the Hurricane Seafood Restaurant (straight down Gulf Blvd) to watch the sunset at the roof top bar. It was amazing!

If we are in the area again, we will definitely look into booking the condo!

Owners response: It's an owner's worst nightmare to have everything working perfectly one day and then something not functioning during our guests' stay at the condo. When I got the call from this guest that the A/C had stopped working, I was out of town for the weekend at our son's college graduation. I was on the phone immediately after the ceremony making calls to get a service technician out to the condo as soon as possible. Luckily someone was able to fix it within hours so it was working well and cooling the unit by the afternoon.
We try our best to not only update the decor of the condo every year but to maintain our appliances and the condo to be in the best condition possible for our guests.
Thank you so much for your kind reviews!!

We loved it!!

Review submitted: July 17, 2014   Date of arrival: July 10, 2014

We just came back from our vacation and we had a great time. This condo is the perfect place if you want to spend a quite and happy time with your family. We enjoyed the pool and the friendly families that were there. Our time at the beach was fabulous. We also enjoyed walking thru Gulf Way at night. The condo is equiped with everything that you need. The bed is very confortable. There were plenty of linen and towels for us to use. It is all very clean and well-organized. We found our vacation spot at the 5th waves. Can't wait for next year!!

Great condo in wonderful area!

Review submitted: March 8, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

What a wonderful condo! Clean, cozy, quiet and stocked with everything we needed. Very close to many bars and restaurants. We lucked out with some great weather and were able to catch the sunset each night. We felt very safe as it was a gated community. Hopefully we will be back.

Owners response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We do our best to ensure the condo is fully stocked and at least annually, we update linens, decor, and sometimes electronics! We love our guests because they take care of the condo as if it's their own home and we truly hope they come back every year!

Perfect retreat for a couple

Review submitted: January 12, 2014   Date of arrival: December 29, 2013

My husband and I spent 8 days in this perfectly sized condo. Was just what we were looking for. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate because it would have made for a perfect get away. Easy walk to the beach and a few local hangouts. The beach trolley is great for getting around if you don't want to mess with a car. I ended up with a horrible upper respiratory flu and spent a few days confined to the condo. BUT with the nasty weather, made it easier having to be cooped up. Would definitely recommend. Very clean and had all the amenities needed. Didn't have to haul extra stuff in your luggage. Very nice place!!!! Thank you.....

Owners response: We love it when our family owned condo meets or exceeds the expectations of our guests! We update our unit with new linens and other decor every year so that we can keep the condo updated and looking nice. Sometimes even our wonderful guests leave little things for the guests to come too! Our guests have been wonderful and treat the condo as their own vacation home! Thank you!

Cozy and convienent! Wonderful location!

Review submitted: November 10, 2013   Date of arrival: October 24, 2013

It was very clean. We had all the amenities as our home. It was wonderful! We were looking for a place to stay close to the beach with a king size bed and a full kitchen. We got it! We stayed with our 2 1/2 year old and 4 month old. Beach toys, chair, towels were there! Plus board games which kept us entertained. We walked to the beach every day. Just what we envisioned and plan to visit again.

Owners response: We are so thankful that we have had such wonderful guests at our family-owned condo and that they can feel right at home! Thank you!

The 5th Wave @ The Waves review by Cindy

Review submitted: November 5, 2013   Date of arrival: October 1, 2013

Jenee, What an adorable place, so well equipped!!! We felt so safe with the locked entry into the complex! Once inside the well-equipped unit we needed nothing! First day we spent at the pool as the weather was a little iffy. Next two days the weather was PERFECT! We found carts, ice chest, beach mats and more in the closet. This made it so easy for the short walk the beach. The bed was so comfy, the shower and bath we great, the kitchen had anything and everything we needed! Will be back – will tell everyone about it!!!! Thanks again, Cindy and Christy
PS Jenee made sure we had directions and was available if needed anything too!

Clean and Close

Review submitted: June 12, 2013   Date of arrival: April 26, 2013

We stayed at The 5th Wave Condo for one week at the end of April. It was more than we expected. Very, very clean inside and out. Very close to everything you needed, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, etc. Lots to do in that area. All my questions prior to arrival were swiftly answered by the owner Jenee. She could not have been more helpful. Sitting around at the pool we met some wonderful people, by the time we left they all felt like I knew them for years. What total fun!

We loved the location.Just a few minutes walk to the beach! The pool area was right outside our door.It was a great place to relax,swim,socialize and barbeque.The condo itself was equipped with anything you could ever need.There were stores,restaurants,bars,groceries a library,etc.within walking distance.You really didn't need a car.If you couldn't walk the beach taxi would come pick you up.It operated for only tips.The bus system was also excellent.All the people we met were very friendly.Many of them have stayed at The Waves before,as will we.We had a great holiday!!

Hi Jenee,
We really had a wonderful time!!! We've been coming down to St. Pete for the last 7 years and this was one of the best. The condo was great - clean, had everything we needed and being steps from the beach and Willy's makes it hard to beat. I can't even think of a suggestion to make the condo any better. If our numbers don't increase we will be sure to rent your condo next year.
Thanks for helping to make this year's vacation really exceptional :)

Wonderful stay

Review submitted: January 26, 2013   Date of arrival: January 10, 2013

I'm so glad we chose to stay at the 5th Wave for our Florida vacation! It was convenient to stores, restaurants and the beach, and so comfortable! The pictures are very accurate - cute, cozy and clean! The bed was great, the shower was wonderful, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owners were excellent to deal with. It was completely quiet at night. I highly recommend this property!

Owners response: We really appreciate our guests and are so happy when we get to hear back from them after their vacation at The 5th Wave @ The Waves. As a family owned condo, our goal is to keep our guests happy so we can get them or their friends and family back every year!
Thank you so much for the nice comments!

Real Nice Time

Review submitted: December 13, 2011   Date of arrival: November 23, 2011

The condo was very nice. Had everything we needed. We love the location. The pool is right out the front door. Just a block from the beach. Walking distance to some of our favorite haunts and shopping locations. The transaction went very smoothly. Appreciate all that Jenee and Victor had to offer. Special thanks to Jenee. We will definitely be considering the 5th Wave again. Thanks for everything.

Great and cute location

Review submitted: October 26, 2011   Date of arrival: September 4, 2011

We are from a little country in Eastern Europe and have spent two weeks in this condo with my spouse and two kids. The owner was very kind to offer us a little discount and we chose this location with a great pleasure. Despite some trouble with our flights schedule which has nothing to do with this rental, we spent great time in this apartment.

It is indeed very central and nearby to major touristic attractions, restaurants, grocery stores and of course the beach, which is only 5 minutes walk. We only rented a car to go to the Disneyland, but for everything else, there is your feet, bus service and trolleys. The condo is also safe and has nice outdoor swimming pool. We strongly recommend this condo for small families and couples. Would choose to re-rent and stay there again.

Thank you Jenee in addition, for all your help and advice for us, strangers to the town.

Owners response: Thank you for your nice review! We love to get approval from our guests as this is our ultimate goal. Please come again!

When can we go back?

Review submitted: May 2, 2010   Date of arrival: April 28, 2010

Sweet! This describes the condo, the owners, and the gorgeous sunsets we watched from the beach every night. I expected to cook a few meals in the extremely well-equipped kitchen, but there were so many nice places around that we took the opportunity to eat out. We relaxed by the pool right outside the door every night before bed, with a glass of wine in hand. In the morning, a stroll back down to the beach to have breakfast by the ocean. Inside, the owners have thought of everything one could want when taking a “homey” vacation—from candles to beach toys to CDs and board games. The place was pretty (very tropical!), clean (I check everything—it was immaculate), and comfortable, and we will definitely want this as our next “Home Away” when we return to St. Pete Beach.
