Waves Maroochy River is located right on the river mouth opposite the Ocean Street dining precinct. As Waves Maroochy River is one of the closest resorts to Sunshine Plaza and with the Big Top Market Fresh directly across the road, you really 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. Selected ground floor and penthouse apartments also offer their own private Jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen complete with gas bbq. An onsite gymnasium is also available to all our guests. Parking is provided in our secure underground basement with security controlled lift access to each level.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Property's Favourite Review
This is our 4th visit to Waves, this time we had 3 apartments booked to accommodate all of us, with famiy visiting from overseas. Once again it was fantastic, each apartment was great and George spent time making sure we had the best apartments to suite each families needs. Would not stay anywhere else in Maroochydore, it is so convenient, great service and unbeatable views. One of the best restaurants is just a few steps away ,Red Sea was unbelievable, and was the perfect place for our last family dinner before they departed. .

Stayed btw 07-Jan to 12-Jan-2024 for our son’s cricket carnival. The customer service was exceptional, they were always friendly and helpful. The unit was spotless, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The location was in walking distance to restaurants and a coffee shop which was very handy after long days at cricket. Previously we have stayed Mooloolaba with ocean views but we are now converted; as the view of the river was stunning. Will definitely be back.

Great apartment in a central and convenient location with fabulous views of the river and Cotton Tree Beach. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The apartment was very clean and well equipped and the extra added touches of chocolates and bottled water very welcoming.

Do yourself a favour and ask for Apartment 904! You will be put it a first class apartment with every thing you need. After you unpack you bags head to the balcony, get a coldy or wine from the fridge, and just have a look at your view....magic. Thanks to all at Waves. Denis

Our stay at Waves apartments was fantastic! Our hosts were very friendly and eager to help and provide any information we needed. We had a 3 bedroom apartment overlooking the river with a beautiful view watching the various water activities. It was a perfect spot to have time with our family including twin toddlers. The apartment was clean and beds very comfortable. It was a great location with a supermarket, shops and cafes within easy walking distance. The park for the children was an easy slow 15 min walk away. My husband and I also had a wonderful meal at the nearby Boatshed restaurant. We would thoroughly recommend this property and hope we can return in the future.

What a stunning apartment- the endless views are to die for!!! Peaceful, quiet yet close to all the action with some great restaurants and bars. The apartments are huge! It was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the staff are very welcoming. Highly recommend.

The Views. We stayed in a penthouse apartment. Worth the cost Close to restaurants and cafe’s. Bed very comfortable Hosts were very friendly This is the second time we have visited Waves. Will do it again. We stayed for 3 nights but could have easily stayed a week. We would thoroughly recommend. Parking can be a bit tight though.

stayed from 13/04/22 - 19/04/22, can't speak highly of the customer service team and their attention to detail, apartment was perfect, so clean and comfortable. Views to die for, not to mention the location, Woolworths pubs and restaurants and Sunshine Plaza, all walking distance. My husband, son and I stay in the 2bdrm penthouse, our son is in a wheelchair, I knew when booking that they didn't have any wheelchair friendly accessible rooms, so we brought our own portable ramp for access, which was not a problem. lift to all levels, ground level has a wheelchair accessible shower for use. I highly recommend the property, we will be back.
