“Beautiful apartment and wonderful view, can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 8 August 2009

Our group was a family of 5 plus 2 girlfriends and we spent 3 glorious nights at Waves and loved every minute of it. We had a 3 bedroom apartment and it was huge with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. The view is supurb with an estuary right in front of you and the waves breaking further out towards the horizon. The apartments have huge balconies with doors that open right back on all sides. There is also a lovely pool and spa on site and the location is really good as you are only 5mins walk from the Sunshine Plaza which is a great shopping centre with a river walkway leading into it that has heaps of great restaurants along it. The Waves is a great place to stay and I would really recommend it. The only thing I would do different next time is to stay longer!

Just had a wonderful week staying in Waves at Maroochydore. The views from the balcony are just superb and we spent most of our time just sitting on the large balcony and watching ships on the horizon, kite-surfers, fisherman and the every changing tidal sandbars - with a lovely glass of champagne in hand! It was perfectly relaxing and a wonderful place to stay. We stayed on the 9th floor (second highest level) and so the outlook over the river to the ocean was just glorious. It was a bit of a hike to the beach - but a very quick car ride.

The apartment itself was spacious and had everything one needs in a holiday pad, including a TV in the bedroom! The place was nicely decorated with lovely artwork throughout and the furniture was comfortable and stylish (We had a chance to look in a couple of other apartments and we definitely think that #904 was the pick of them!). There were two bedrooms, the master had a large ensuite with jacuzzi bath as well as a good sized walk-in robe and the second bedroom had a door linking it directly to the main bathroom - which included a terrific walk-in shower. The beds were super comfortable!

Whilst the kitchen was a high standard, we found it easier to simply avail of the many excellent local restaurants including the spectacular Boat Shed - a short stroll from Waves along the river. It was definitely our favourite with equally wonderful views over the river and a menu to die for!

The on-site managers were very helpful and check-in took only seconds. As it was winter, it was a little chilly for the pool though the outdoor spa was lovely. The fitness centre was small, but had a good treadmill to help work off some of the holiday calories.

All in all, we'd definitely recommend Waves for those visiting the Sunshine Coast.

We stayed in the waves apartments in Maroochydore, it was fantastic and we are surprised not listed on trip advisor. Accomodation was pristine, huge, great location and fantastic view over the estuary and breakfast with sun was outstanding. We would definately stay here again
