Hi, I'm Maria, your host. Please contact me about long-term pricing in this shared condo since it's different from the daily rate. The Wave is an architecturally unique, renovated 1960s building with all rounded external and internal elements. A goal is to get it placed on the National Registry Of Historic Places.
This is a shared 2 bedroom/1.5 bath condo which means I live here too with have two sweet pet cats. Guests have a beautiful, tropical-style private bedroom with a full bed which sleeps one or two people. They have access to the rest of the condo including modern kitchen, living/dining areas, bathrooms, and all condo building amenities. If you don't want to share your living space with me, check out my other private condo listings on airbnb which are in the same building. Everyone is welcome at my shared condo and I look forward to meeting you and making your stay here very pleasant, but please don't book here if you dislike cats or are critical of indoor pets. This shared condo is attractively furnished, clean, bright, upscale, and elegant. It's ideal for 1-2 guests at a reasonable price. It has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave oven, stainless steel refrigerator, toaster oven, coffee machine, granite countertops, all dishes/utensils/pots and pans. Living room has leather sofas, coffee table, end tables, entertainment unit with electric fireplace, 42" LED TV with cable and wifi through Bright House Networks, and elegant paintings and decor throughout. From the 4th floor balcony, your view is of the huge pool with tropical landscaping, picnic/BBQ area, sand volleyball court, and a lush palm and pine forest. The lovely dining room has a slate tile/oak dining table with crystal chandelier above. One airy, modern, Florida tropical-themed guest bedroom has a full bed (52" wide) which sleeps 1-2 guests, and it contains a contemporary matching bedroom set consisting of a dresser with mirror, two bedside tables with lamps, ceiling fan, chest of drawers, attractive tropical décor, light oak laminate flooring, and a Florida/tropical color scheme of blue and light green. The entire condo is airy and bright with plantation shutters on all windows as well as the balcony. There's whitish tile throughout the unit. My kitty cats sleep most of the day and aren't a bother to anyone, and they like people! Their litter box is outside on the balcony and the condo is furnished with Air Wick room fresheners for a pleasant smell throughout.

Interaction with Guests
Hi, I'm your host Maria! I'm very friendly with extensive overseas travel experiences, so I will assist as much as possible to make guests feel comfortable and give them a quality vacation. I was a European tour guide based in Germany for two years, but now I'm a high school teacher of English As A Foreign Language. Having been born in southern Slovakia, I still speak Hungarian and Slovakian pretty well in addition to English. Places I've visited include most of Europe, parts of Russia, East Africa, most of the Caribbean, and parts of Central and South Africa. More adventures are planned for the future! My hobbies include cycling, walking on the beach, learning new things, fitness and healthy living, my pets, spending time with friends, and traveling.
The Wave is in south St. Pete in an area called Pinellas Point because it's at the tip of the Pinellas peninsula, 1/4 mile from Tampa Bay and the Skyway Bridge. My condo is on the 4th floor and faces woods and palm trees for a secluded resort feeling! The Wave is minutes from I-275 highway for convenience to Tampa. It is close to parks, downtown, and Gulf of Mexico beaches.
Condo is a half mile from I-275, so it's very convenient access to get around St. Pete, Pinellas County, Tampa International Airport, and other parts of Tampa including Busch Gardens, Florida Aquarium, and Adventure Island Water Park. The condo is about 90 miles from Orlando, so also very convenient to the Disney Theme Parks and Universal Studios. The condo is four miles east of St. Pete Beach, Ft. DeSoto Park, and the Gulf of Mexico. It's adjacent to a private marina and about a 1/4 mile from Tampa Bay and Maximo Park at the tip of the Pinellas peninsula. This area of St. Pete is called Pinellas Point because it's at the base of the Skyway Bridge which passes into the next county to the south. Major grocery stores, shops, gas stations/convenience stores are a 10 minute walk from the condo.
Other Things to Note
Free guest parking outside of the condo building is available for visitors with a car. You can also park for free on the street in front of the building.
No smokers, please. Clean kitchen and dishes after using them and keep the condo tidy. Thank you!
Maria was a wonderful & accommodating host despite my very short stay & everything was just as she described it. The condo is very unique and awesome, in a beautiful location. Highly recommend!
We appreciated Maria's hospitality. She was very responsive, flexible, and generous with letting us use her space. The room was clean and we really appreciated being able to use her kitchen! For the most part we had the place to ourselves while she was at work, although she was at home a few evenings.
Maria was a great host. She provided me with a place to stay one last night in the St. Pete area on a spur of the moment notice less than 12 hrs before I wanted to check in. She was super informative about the area, and more than willing to help us find local eateries and breweries to enjoy our final night in Florida!
Maria was a perfect host. Her directions were clear and accurate. She welcomed me, and showed me around the property which was quite nice. Due to a family medical emergency, I had to cut my visit short which was a shame. I would have liked to have stayed longer.
Maia is an excellent host. A very friendly greeting. Maria's place was just as described. Everything spotless clean and as described. She has two lovable cats which were no problem and kept to themselves the entire time. She has a nice screened porch that overlooks the pool but unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy. We just happened to hit a cold spell for a couple of days.
Also, Maria provided excellent directions, and contact info so there were no problems.
Maria is a warm and welcoming host. The bed is extremely comfortable and so close to Publix. Nice pool, but a bit too cold in Tampa at the time.
Maria was great: a helpful host who responded right away and was kindly flexible about our last-minute reservation, and also a very interesting person to talk to, being a world traveller full of real-life tips about unconventional destinations (I took a lot of notes and am inspired to be more adventurous). She is part of what makes the travel and Airbnb experience worthwhile. And the apartment itself was comfortable, clean and easy to get to--especially if you're driving North as we were.

Hi! I am a high school teacher of English As A Foreign Language. I also speak Hungarian and Slovakian quite well, having moved to the U.S. when I was nine. 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 traveling, cycling, kayaking, hiking, and being outdoors in beautiful nature. I don't smoke, rarely drink, and try to live an interesting, happy life in beautiful St. Petersburg which I now call home. I look forward to meeting you!
