Property description

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. Please keep in mind that this is a privately owned condo and not the Hilton or a 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. We also have 4 private 1/1 condos which are beautifully furnished in the same building, The Wave, and all are poolside. Please see listing numbers 716272, 675268, 611912, and 592482 if you prefer a private condo. The first has a thick futon in the living room which sleeps two people and the other two have sleeper sofas in the living room. All units have a queen bed.

Please message me about rates and availability. Rates depend on the month and length of stay. For a reasonable price, you will SHARE this beautiful condo (1-2 people only) with Maria who lives there full-time with her two sweet cats who sleep most of the day and are very people-friendly. THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE UNIT. IF YOU NEED ONE, PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOUT THE PRIVATE 1/1 CONDOS IN THE SAME BUILDING. Please send an inquiry to the private listing number you're interested in so I can send a quote.

This shared 920 s.f. condo is in the lovely Wave condo building in south St. Petersburg at the base of the Skyway Bridge near I-275 in the affluent area called Pinellas Point because it's at the southernmost tip of the Pinellas peninsula. The condo has 2 bedrooms (one for host) and 1.5 baths. A guest bedroom has a full bed (52' wide) which sleeps up to two people. It's beautifully furnished with matching bedroom set of dresser with mirror, chest of drawers, two bedside tables, lamp, ceiling fan, silk plants, oak laminate flooring, and tropical artwork and colors for a delightful Florida ambiance. The living room has a leather sofa and chairs, entertainment unit with electric fireplace and 42 in. LED TV with cable and wifi by Bright House Networks, slate tile/oak dining table with 6 chairs and overhanging crystal chandelier, breakfast bar of black granite including granite kitchen countertops and backsplash. Condo has all utilities, huge pool, sand volleyball court, BBQ/picnic area, fitness center, laundry rooms, and free guest parking around building as well as on the street in front. Great location--across from a private marina on Tampa Bay at the base of the Skyway Bridge. It's minutes to Gulf of Mexico beaches, downtown St. Pete, Tampa including Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, and about 50 minutes to Sarasota.

The modern, elegant kitchen has a dishwasher, black granite countertops, stainless steel refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, coffee machine, and all dishes/utensils for cooking and preparing meals. The dining area is adjacent to the 4th floor balcony which overlooks the large pool, picnic/barbecue areas, sand volleyball court, and nearby woods with palms and pines for a secluded, tropical resort ambiance. The condo is modern, bright with white plantation shutters throughout, and very comfortable with a whitish tile floor.

Free guest parking is available outside of the condo building for guests with a car. Community laundry rooms and a fitness center are on the first floor.
