We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with out family after Easter and enjoyed it so much that we didn't want to leave. The apartment is large, very modern, clean and has a wonderful view of the ocean. The manager and staff were helpful and friendly and suggested places to eat. Having on-site managers makes a great difference. It is... More

We stayed at Waves for 8 nights pre-Easter and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well appointed with a very usable kitchen. The view from the balcony overlooking the Maroochy river was stunning. The location right across from the Big Top Market Fresh shopping complex was extremely handy as was the short walk to both Sunshine Plaza and... More

The moment we walked into our apartment our expectations were MORE than surpassed with three spacious bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, LOADS of room in both the lounge/dining area as well as on the balcony and oh, the view, the view of the river and ocean was...

This place had the best atmosphere, staff were friendly and family orientated, the view from the apartment to the river was breathtaking watching the sunset or rise. The place was clean and tidy, very spacious. Lovely pool and spa. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday was close by, ie shops, clubs, playground, restaurants etc. Definitely a great place to...

We stayed for three nights and found the location on waves to be ideal. The appartment we stayed in was luxurious, spacious, clean and quiet - the perfect getaway for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back to stay again soon. Greg and Hayley

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us here at Waves.

We were in a ground floor apartment and while the room looked great we were advised at the time of booking that it was suitable for disabled which in EVERY way it was not. I arrived on my family's second day at this hotel and relatives had had to purchase ramps to allow my mum access outside the apartment. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, although from our point of view it wasn't accurate. We would like to point out we are not a hotel, all of our apartments are fully self contained and servicing is carried out weekly for stays for 7 nights or longer. Unfortunately your group only stayed 4 nights. It is... More

Thanks for your review Karen. As the apartments are all individually owned the furnishings can be different in each apartment, hence some with roller blinds and other with curtains. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Kind Regards Management More

Where do I begin to say how beautiful this location is? On the Maroochy River and walking distance to the Big Top, AND Sunshine Plaza (lets just say my credit card had a work out, Uhh-ohh) makes the Waves ideal for a holiday. The apartments are simplistically beautiful taking in a essence of beach culture. Staff are very helpful and... More
