About the Property

Tropical 1/1 private St. Pete condo--4 mi. to St. Pete Beach, Ft. Desoto Park

This is an affordable, economical, and comfortable private 1/1 condo. Please contact us if you wish to share a 2/2 condo very inexpensively with the property manager and her two sweet cats. It is located in the same building, also poolside and facing the forest. Thank you!

The retro Wave building is of historic, 1960s art deco architecture. It's not the Trump Tower or Ritz Carlton, but it has historic relevance and its unique design wave design is unrivaled in the U.S. Various renovations have been made in recent years such as enhanced landscaping with more to come in future years such as new windows and balconies.

The building is minutes from the warm, turquoise waters and white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, Fort DeSoto Park, and St. Pete Beach which was chosen by "Dr. Beach" as one of America's top beaches. This tastefully furnished, 1/1 private and highly affordable condo will suit your budget. It'll be your home away from home because it's equipped with all the comforts and conveniences needed for a memorable Florida vacation. Numerous activities are available nearby--enjoy the area's walking and biking trails, fishing, swimming, golfing, boating, sight-seeing trips, nightlife, casino cruises, sunset cruises, watercraft rentals, and more. Hop on board the Suncoast Beach Trolley at the Don Cesar, the famous "Pink Palace" on St. Pete Beach recently named "American's Best Historic Hotel," and spend the day exploring and touring Florida's Gulf beaches. Enjoy the "catch of the day" at one of the many beachfront restaurants or take a break from the sun and sand and meander through the unique shops and many tourist attractions up and down our beautiful coastline such as St. John's Pass. If you desire theme park adventures, Busch Gardens is a 45 minute drive east while Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios are less than 2 hours away. Shop, dine, and explore downtown St. Petersburg during your stay. Sundial, the city’s newest architectural wonder in the heart of downtown, will mesmerize you with its unique collection of shops, restaurants, spas, nightlife, and entertainment. The place “to be” in downtown St. Pete is Beach Drive. Overflowing culture and arts, the unrivaled Chihuly Collection is just one of many diverse galleries along Beach Drive. The excellent dining at one of the many upscale restaurants is a must. St. Pete’s picturesque waterfront is also home to the world-class Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Mahaffey Theater, Florida Orchestra, and over 1,000 special events and festivals each year. For visiting sports fans, the choices abound--Tropicana Field, the home of the Tampa Bay Rays, is a 15 minute drive. Just north on Interstate 275 is Raymond James Stadium and Amalie Arena, home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Tampa Bay area is also home to the Rowdies of the North American Soccer League, minor league baseball, and MLB Spring Training. So, pack your bags because it's vacation time which around here means fun in the sun!

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 unit. 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. We will be happy to direct you to those properties where you will pay $250/night or more. The condos are clean and tastefully furnished, but 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 very reasonable price for a Florida vacation.

DeSoto Park (7 miles southwest), Eckerd College (1 mile west), downtown St. Pete (5 miles northeast), Tampa (18 miles northeast), and even Bradenton and Sarasota for a day trip (50 miles south)! The condo is a 5 minute walk from a major grocery store, shops, gas stations, convenience store, and restaurants. Enjoy the privacy of your own fully tropical-style furnished home with a living room, kitchen, dining area, bedroom, and bath (with tub and shower). One free designated parking space comes with the condo, and free guest parking is available around the building.
