We stayed in a three bedroom apartment for seven nights. The apartment was well appointed and maintained with a fantastic view. The location was perfect being opposite a shopping centre with everything we required. The staff were fantastic, very helpful and nothing was a problem. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 9th floor . The room was clean and had an amazing view . Easy walking distance to shopping centre and supermarket . Great sitting on balcony and watching the paddle boards and canoes . The only fault is the lack of wifi . Yes it's free wifi but I'd rather pay... More

We stayed in a penthouse for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed the location, the beautiful view over the lake and ocean, the amenities, the shopping, the friendly people and the hot tub. Only frustration was the wifi not working properly. Maybe we are spoiled but these days properly functioning wifi is a must. The penthouse had a great bed and... More

Excellent location for us as we have family close by and was handy to shops, parks etc. The Apartment was well appointed, well maintained and managed. Magnificent views. Extremely comfortable. The variety of activities on the river and oceanfront were entertaining to watch. Guaranteed to return.

Waves is well located to cater for all the family needs, right on the river for water sports, Short walk to patrolled surf beach, short walk to Sunshine Plaza shops and even shorter walk to eat street for great restaurants and bars and a short drive to all other Sunshine Coast attractions. The units are spacious clean and well appointed,... More

I have given Waves the title of Best Sunshine Coast Resort because it really is the best I have stayed in. I have lived on the coast for over 30 years and have stayed in many resorts on the coast either being for my own pleasure or entertaining family or friends and I can say that Waves ticked every box...

You dont ever need to get the car out of the basement. Shops across the road. Busses to anywhere and everywhere a short walk away. Very pleasant staff. Great views day or night. I think this is our new place of choice.

This is the third year of visiting Waves prior to the madness of Christmas shopping and celebrations. The view, day or night, from the lounge or balcony never fails - even when Queensland's weather isn't perfect. Proximity to a large shopping centre with attached cinema is a plus but even better is being able to duck out the front door... More
