St. Pete Beach condo description

The '5th Wave'; a cozy one bedroom, one bath, ground floor, corner-unit condo overlooking a beautiful pool and patio and just over a block to the beach! The 5th Wave Condo is the perfect size for one couple or small family of 4 and we now have Wifi!

Assigned parking for two is available, but you won't need a car as you are within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the powdery white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.



The kitchen and living area overlooks the beautiful pool and patio so relax on the sofa or prepare a snack in the kitchen and gaze outside the window at the pool and tropical patio. You can also barbecue a great meal on the new grills at poolside!

Wii Fi available at internet cafes and libraries down the street!
