About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

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 Wave is just 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 fantastic 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!

MORE DETAILS:
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 us 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 and with additional upgrades coming in 2017 including new screened balconies.

For the comfort and health concerns of all guests, NO PETS and NO SMOKERS, please. Property to be used for legal purposes only.
