The Waves did not disappoint as the intention was have a relaxing one week break. A two bedroom apartment on a higher level was requested, which allowed some extra space. As previous reviewers indicated, the view over the Maroochy River is spectacular but at the same time very restful too.
The apartment has a spacious living area with large TV, including pay channels. WiFi access is a bit expensive at $A35 per week. If you just want to check your emails I suggest going to Mikkis café next door for the free WiFi, as well as enjoying the nice food. The main bedroom also has a view over the river. At the back of this bedroom is an ensuite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The wardrobe could have had more clothes hangers, and the bed linen used for the first few nights was a bit thin, however there was apartment service mid-week and this linen was replaced with better quality sheets. At the rear of the apartment is a laundry, another bedroom and an additional shower and toilet. The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering with complementary tea and coffee provided.
A car park is available for each unit and access is via the basement. On the ground floor there is a swimming pool which is ideal in the summer weather as well as a gym equipped with a treadmill, bike and rowing machine as well as a bench press/weights centre. Books and DVDs are available to borrow from the main office.
Waves is located close to many good restaurants including the Boat Shed at Cotton Tree. In addition there is a Woolworths supermarket, newsagent and the Sunshine Plaza shopping centre is just a short walk away.
