Perfect place for a family catchup and the weather was also perfect, sunshine and 22 is so munch better than Melb on a winters day. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on 9th floor, 906, as mentioned million dollars views and great location, surrounded by shops &... More

We had a three bedroom apartment on 7th floor and it had stunning views which were made even better by the floor to ceiling Windows which the kids loved meant they could see out without climbing up to see. Apartments very clean and tidy and had pretty much everything we needed. Location was also perfect close to Woolworths, cafes and... More

Beautiful, spotlessly clean complex. Great spacious unit with spectacular views. Wonderful location with big shopping mall a few minutes walk & supermarket just across the road. More crockery, and cutlery would be useful.

Why do we love Waves so Much ????? Location and beautiful units ...there is nothing to compare with the amazing views of the Maroochy River. The neverending comings and goings on the river is so relaxing. Breakfast on the balcony watching the sunrise is beautiful. The birdlife is spectacular and the tidal changes interesting.

We booked a three bedroom apartment for my sister's baby shower as it looked to have plenty of room. The entire apartment was HUGE! It was spotlessly clean and I've never been in a holiday home kitchen like it - it was more than fully equipped. The views from the balcony and master bedroom are just amazing and you couldn't...

Four days/three nights here was bliss. Relaxed. Fished. Visited the beautiful hinterland. This venue is suited to families and couples. Apartments are spacious, functional and well presented. All 60 have river and ocean views. Loved it
