The space

Hi, I'm Maria, the on-site property manager. We have five highly affordable, attractive, clean, private 1/1 condos in this building for those with budgets in mind. To keep the space clean and comfortable for all guests, no pets and no smokers, please. Please see all condos offered by clicking on my Airbnb profile photo.

This retro building is of 1960s art deco architecture. It's not the Trump Tower or Ritz Carlton by any means, but it has historic relevance and its unique design is unrivaled in the U.S. Various renovations such as landscaping enhancements have been made in recent years with more to come in future years such as new balconies, so balconies are decorative only at this time with poolside and forest views until the HOA decides what to do with them in the next 2-3 years.

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.

If you want an affordable place but have Trump Tower, Grand Hilton, or Ritz-Carlton expectations, don't book here. This is an attractive, clean condo and very unique, historic condo building. This condo is very good deal pricewise for all you get! Rules: No smokers and no pets, please. If you need to arrive after 11 p.m., please message me before booking to confirm that I will be available to accommodate late arrivals. Guests are expected to be respectfully quiet for residents in the building which means no loud parties or noises at any time--people live here year-round and go to work and send their kids to school. Please tidy up condo and throw out garbage regularly. Garbage chutes are adjacent to each elevator. Please dispose of your garbage before departing. Also, please wash your dishes before leaving--please do not leave dirty dishes in the sink for me to wash. That's not part of the cleaning fee which is very low already since the condo units require 2-3 hours each to clean thoroughly after departure. When not in the condo, please turn off lights and ceiling fans and turn up the AC to conserve electricity. Condo to be used only for legal purposes. Thank you!

Very nice house, close to a grocery store and gas station. Although close to an interstate, could not hear any traffic. Maria has the provided all necessary items if you want to cook. The place was a perfect size.

This is our second time staying a The Wave. Maria has a few condos in this building and we intend to try them all! It's always a great experience staying here and there is so much offered. This unit has a beautiful view, and is very conveniently located by the elevator! The full size kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to cook meals. The location is very ideal as well with close proximity to stores, food, and the beach!

The condo is neat, clean and spacious. It is convenient that there is a big store Publix and the I-275 highway nearby. You would definitely need a car to go to beaches, downtown or museums.
Maria User Profile
Response from Maria:
Thank you! Yes, we're 4 miles east of the beaches but it's a beautiful drive over islands and bridges that takes about 10 minutes by car. Public transportation in most cities in the U.S. is limited and terrible! :(

An easy drive to beaches, parks, restaurants, just be aware that walking to these places will take quite a bit more time. A publix shopping center is a short walk away though, which was very convenient.
Maria User Profile
Response from Maria:
Thanks for leaving the condo so immaculately clean and tidy, Destiny! Yes, we're a few minutes walk from shopping and a grocery store but St. Pete Beach is 4 miles due west---some people have come here with bicycles to get great workouts and reach the beach on bike in about 20 minutes! :)

Maria's place was exactly as advertised and deserves 5-stars. The space had everything my friend and I needed and was the perfect distance between the beach and Downtown St. Pete. Although we only spent our time sleeping and changing in the apartment, it was a very comfortable an accommodating environment
Maria User Profile
Response from Maria:
Thank you so much! This building is not "upscale" but definitely historically significant with many renovations already completed and more to come. The condo units themselves are clean and attractive for a very reasonable price; the location, as you mentioned, is ideal for exploring the local area and is minutes from beaches, parks, downtown, and other places of interests.

Hello, I'm Maria, your on-site property manager since I live in this building too and can assist you as needed. I'm an optimistic, cheerful, flexible, easy-going, helpful person with a positive life outlook who prefers guests with the same attitude. Pessimistic perfectionists who are impossible to please because they search for negatives are not welcome in any of the six condos we manage in this building.

My partners and I work very hard to give guests a friendly, memorable experience at reasonable, affordable prices. This unique, 1960s building overlooks lush woods for a secluded resort feel. The building has attractive landscaping and fitness center, huge pool, picnic area, and reserved free parking.

I speak Hungarian and Slovakian fairly well. 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 reading, writing, traveling, cycling, kayaking, hiking, being outdoors in beautiful nature, and spending time with close friends and of course, with my dear pets. I live an interesting, happy life in beautiful St. Petersburg which I call home for the time being. I look forward to meeting you!
