Hello, and thanks for your interest in a Wave vacation condo which strives to bring quality living to visitors at the most affordable price! Your budget and comfort are equally important to us. You'll enjoy this unique, historic, Brazilian art deco architectural style building at the southern tip of the Pinellas peninsula adjacent to the 7-mile long Skyway Bridge crossing Tampa Bay. Please contact the on-site resident rental manager, Maria Juhasz, with any questions or concerns prior to booking so you'll have the most enjoyable vacation experience possible.
Hi, I'm Maria, your host. Please contact me about future pricing since the price you see now is for current bookings and changes every 2-3 weeks based on season and demand. The Wave is an architecturally unique, renovated 1960s building of Brazilian art deco style with all rounded external and internal elements. It really looks like a wave! For the comfort and health concerns of all guests, NO PETS and NO SMOKERS, please. Property to be used for legal purposes only.
This is a charming, tropically-themed one bedroom, one bath condo in The Wave condominium building in south St. Petersburg in the upscale area called Pinellas Point. For all you get, the pricing is very reasonable but please keep in mind that this is a privately owned condo and not the Hilton Hotel or a 5-star beachfront resort. I will be happy to direct you to those properties where you will pay $250/night or more. Please, have reasonable expectations because the photos you see and the descriptions online here are accurate. We work hard to please, make you feel comfortable, and provide quality at a great price for a Florida vacation.

About the owner: Hi, I'm Maria, your host! I'm a high school teacher of English As A Foreign Language. I also speak Hungarian and Slovakian quite well, having moved to the U.S. when I was nine from Slovakia. I grew up mainly in Michigan and later, lived and worked in Kuwait and Germany for several years. I've visited most of Europe and parts of Central and South America, Africa, and many Caribbean islands. In addition to traveling abroad, I enjoy meeting people from other nations and cultures. My hobbies are traveling, cycling, kayaking, hiking, and being outdoors in beautiful nature. I don't smoke, rarely drink, and try to live an interesting, happy life in beautiful St. Petersburg which I now call home. I live downstairs on the 4th floor of this condo building called The Wave. This private 1/1 unit is on the 5th floor, so I'm nearby to be a helpful, informative hostess to all my guests. I look forward to meeting you!
Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg: Tropical Florida-themed for great ambiance! Friendly, informative host; convenient location to major attractions including our famous Gulf of Mexico beaches, Ft. DeSoto Park, downtown St. Petersburg, and Tampa. A short 10 minute walk to major grocery store (Publix) and shops. The public library is a 10 minute drive so you can check out books and DVDs for free and use the computers there is you wish.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Host lives one floor below in another condo (also available to guests for bookings, but it is shared with her). I'm available to assist you as needed and give sightseeing advice. Condo has many amenities for an enjoyable, relaxing, affordable holiday!
