This property is very modern and has everything we needed for our one night stay in Coromandel. There were 5 of us travelling as friends so we booked a 3 bedroom apartment and for the price it was exactly what we wanted. The fire place was beautiful for a cold winter's night and there were smaller heaters in each of...

Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience. We are really pleased you enjoyed the many amenities that the Villas at Sovereign Pier have to offer and it’s great to know you appreciated us putting the extra heaters into the bedrooms on that particularly cold day; (we know Australians feel the cold here). All the villas are...

Stayed here midway through a long trip around New Zealand.It was so beautiful and relaxing that we spent most of our stay chilling out on our large balcony watching the world go by.Very well equipped suites so it was easy to pick up food at the local excellent supermarket and eat on the balcony.Highly recommended.

We are ecstatic that you had such a relaxing time, as Whitianga is all about relaxing and refreshing the mind and body. Great to hear you enjoyed the peaceful waterways, just the right distance to still walk to town at 1.4km to the centre of the main street. Lucky for us we now have Countdown (about 0.9km away) and also...

Beautiful Suite Clean, spacious and lovely waterway views. Host was welcoming and treated us like her own personal guests. Whitianga has been waiting for a place like this. We will definitely stay here again.

Whitianga is a beautiful town, and we had the privilege of staying at Sovereign Piers on the waterways. The rooms and amenities were great, view of the waterways was excellent too. Had a private garage, with security at the front gate. Drive to town and supermarket was also a short distance only. Great food at the Squids restaurant! We really...

Stayed here for two nights while visiting the Coromandel. A well presented and appointed single room apartment. Only a short drive into the centre of town or an easy walk if the weather is kind ............ we struck a wet couple of days!

The apartments are just beautiful. And the view out to the Marina is lovely to wake up to. Not too far from the Main Street and shops and restaurants. Apartments have all the mod cons (though I didn't see any air conditioning?) and are clean and comfortable. We stayed in a three bedroom apartment (5 adults one child).
