The SPACIOUS flat had everything we could want for a quick weekend get-a-way. The view of the river was fabulous - so nice watching the sunrise while people were moving up and down the river on their kayaks and sail boards. The flat itself was quiet (floor 7) and fully equipped with a kitchen and laundry.. not as many dishes... More

This spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment has the most magnificent views of the Maroochy river and the beautiful Sunshine Coast coastline beyond. The apartment was on the 9th floor with a large north east facing balcony that gave the feel of total seclusion and privacy. The apartment was comfortable in every respect with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable... More

Wow, this place was everything other reviewers said and more! We were on the 7th floor and the view was spectacular! It was hard to actually leave the apartment because we kept wanting to go out onto the balcony and look at the view. There were boats sailing past, people fishing and of course the tide coming in and out... More

Had the penthouse two bedroom suite for a week. Fabulous views as you are right on/over the water. Watched the pelicans, cormorants and other birds fishing on the outgoing tides. The sound of the rising and falling tides was a gentle backdrop as was the quiet roar of the ocean. Two floors for the penthouse with large hot spa, big... More

We have recently returned from a Wonderful Week at Waves. We had a beautiful, spacious, corner unit on an upper floor with spectacular views over the ocean, river and Cotton Tree. The unit was well appointed, very clean and had everything we needed. Woolworths, Pharmacy and Specialty stores directly opposite was a real bonus. We enjoyed the magnificent Sunrise each... More
