We booked with Helen in Easter 2013 for a 15 night stay in an apartment, not knowing which apartment at that time. Well we had the most amazing surprise to see we had apartment 904. The views are just spectacular over the Maroochy River estuary and sea. The apartment was excellently presented with a new king size bed for one of the bedrooms. Two great bathrooms for each bedroom. Laundry room had a large top loader and good size drier. The kitchen has a very large fridge with freezer, large oven and dishwasher, great work tops and a view to make your heart sing even when cooking. The balcony has a large table and chaired and two sun chairs. In the heat we experienced 30+ degrees the shade was very welcome. The local residents made our stay even more special- thank you to Jocelyn for the drinks evening.
Local facilities are great- all shops are within walking distance including ATM. The Red Sea Restuarant at the entrance to Waves provides takeaway food and delicious coffee- at the moment it is bring your own booze- which you can buy from the Duporth Tavern at a reasonable price. The food at the Red Sea is excellent- try the sea food platter- just amazing!
We hired a car which we parked underneath the apartment block. My partner is disabled and we used our UK badge for parking which was accepted by parking attendants. The tourist route drives are great fun and you get to see the Hinterland. Euramundi market is a brilliant market - get there early for a park and brekky.
I highly recommend The Waves for the position- quiet compared to Mooloolaba which is noisy and very busy. Helen and Peter make you feel very welcome and make sure the facilities are in excellent condition. We certainly hope to return to Waves on our next visit to Australia.
