Lovely clean spacious apartment with amazing view right on the water - beautiful sea breeze & can hear the waves at night. Balcony & lounge overlook the water. Fantastic location, 1 minute walk to supermarket/chemist/newsagent - 5 minute walk to Sunshine Plaza with terrific shopping/cinema/restaurants. Ticks all the boxes!

As Waves Maroochy River is one of the closest resorts to Sunshine Plaza and with the new Big Top Market Fresh directly across the road, you will be spoilt for options when it comes to shopping or dining out. Access to the river is via our own private jetty or if the beach is more your thing, a short stroll along the river through Cotton Tree Park will find you at our very own Maroochydore Beach. Our complex of 1,2 or 3 bedroom fully self-contained self-catered apartments is complete with a resort style heated pool, spa and separate kids wading pool.
