Why should you choose #5 at the Waves for your vacation?
***Owner managed with AMAZING service***
We and our assistants are invested in your experience, knowledgeable about this exact property, and available to help whenever needed. Never deal with another faceless management company again!
***Convenience STEPS FROM BEACH***
Experience real Island living at our amazing location on the corner of Gulf Blvd and Atol St (green building). Ground floor with direct access to tropical courtyard, pool, and BBQ area. Need something from the car? Covered. Snack from the beach? No problem.
Don’t spend your well deserved vacation in a rental office. You’ll go directly to the unit where we will welcome you and show you around. No office included!
***Taxes for long-term stays***
Stays longer than 30 days are not subject to occupancy taxes. Due to technical limitations, your quote or email confirmation may still show taxes. For longer stays, the base rent has already been reduced and the tax shown applies towards rent. The total amount on the website and emails is always accurate. Please note that you will NOT receive any refund or reductions for amounts shows in the tax line.
Ever lost a key at the beach or been charged for a missing key? Our unit features keyless electronic access with a unique pin-code for your exact dates. That way, there is no key to share and nothing to lose. Also, rest assured that no spare keys are floating around from past guests.
We may offer a selection of live and on-demand streaming TV channels delivered through an internet connection instead of traditional cable/satellite service.
