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...

Hi Anna Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have been having some issues with our wifi of late and have just engaged a contractor to install additional transmitters to boost the signal strength. Hopefully this will rectify any future issues. Once again, thanks for a...

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...

Hi Christo Thank you for leaving a lovely review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay here with us at Waves. As you have suggested, our penthouses with their own private rooftop Jacuzzi and BBQ really are ideal for that special breakaway.

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.

I have given Waves the title of Best Sunshine Coast Resort because it really is the best I have stayed in.

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...
