I have not got enough good things to say about this place. I am shocked to see that it isn't No 1 in Maroochydore ... it is significantly better than Waves for example, for the simple fact that every single one of the 70-odd apartments all have a 180 degree view of the beautiful Maroochy river.
We arrived here after travelling for 28 hours, we checked in four hours early, no problem, we had emailed ahead and were told our apartment would be ready. We all gasped "WOW" when we saw the view, which is an absolute view from the huge balcony (table and six chairs, sun lounger and STILL room to spare) and the same view from the huge master bedroom.
The apartment is huge, plenty of room if fully occupied, and very very clean. It all looks brand new. Everything you could possibly need is supplied, including kettle toaster, full oven, huge fridge, freezer, utensils, enough crockery for about 20 people, washing machine, drier. The only things we missed were a pair of kitchen scissors, and a safety deposit box. Lack of the safety deposit box was surprising I thought.
We had a huge walk in wardrobe with tons of hanging and folding space. Our bathroom had a spa bath and a large walk in shower, double basin. A small soap, shower cap, shampoo and conditioner were supplied, along with plenty of fluffy white towels (which were slightly on the small side but adequate)>
In a separate corridor behind the kitchen were two further bedrooms, not huge but plenty of storage space, the washing room, and a separate toilet and another bathroom.
I had emailed in advance to ask for a feather-free experience as I am severely allergic, and this was no problem, and confirmed on arrival.
We had hired a car and there is plenty of free secure parking underneath the block. We stayed for 10 days which was sufficient time to see all the tourist attractions in the area.
The block has a restaurant on site which we didn't try, but there are plenty of restaurants, shops and takeaways within walking distance.
There is a smallish swimming tub, alongside a hot tub, with stunning views out over the river.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone, and I am hoping to return here one day. I was sad to leave the amazing view, like nothing else I have ever had from a hotel balcony !
