My partner and I took a 3 day break from the Gold Coast and chose to stay at this lovely hotel at Maroochydore. We asked for and were given a great 2 bedroom apartment room on the 7th floor with spectacular views across the Maroochy River to the ocean beyond. The location and facilities were excellent and we thoroughly recommend...

We rented a 3 bedroom apartment for the weekend. The booking website said 180 degree views but we were on a 1st floor apartment (106) so the view was restricted to about 90 degrees (unless you walked to edge of courtyard and looked around the wall) but still great. As a bonus in our apartment we had access to a...

Every January we stay at Waves for a week and every year it never disappoints. The view you have of the river and beach is just amazing. So nice and quite but close enough to everything; Sunshine Plaza and Big Top just over the road. The management is amazing and everyone is so lovely and approachable if you ever need...

Waves is a family favourite of ours and this is our third year returning. The spectacular view and location is perfect. Close to bars and restaurants on ocean street and sunshine plaza a short walk away you can't get any more easy. 10/10

Wow!!!!! My reaction as I walked through the door. The view, the apartment and the vibe. A friend and I stayed on the 2nd floor for 4 nights. Wished it was a longer amount of time. The apartment is immaculate. All appliances and kitchenware are maintained to the highest of standards. The king size bed (if not bigger than that)...

Lovely clean spacious apartment with amazing view right on the water - beautiful sea breeze & can hear the waves at night. Balcony & lounge overlook the water. Fantastic location, 1 minute walk to supermarket/chemist/newsagent - 5 minute walk to Sunshine Plaza with terrific shopping/cinema/restaurants. Ticks all the boxes!
