Beautifully furnished, well equipped and spotlessly clean apartment within walking distance to restaurants, shops and bars. Huge balcony with outside furniture overlooking a marina. We were made to feel very welcome by the reception staff when we arrived. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Very large modern apartment overlooking the private boat dock. Exceptionally well furnished and equipped. Very helpful reception team. Good wi-fi but no air conditioning. Would definitely stay there again.

We used it as bass camp for the Leadfoot festival and it couldn't of been better, being only a pleasant 30 minute drive back to Hahei for the event.We will most defiantly do this trip again and its only 2.5 hrs back...

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting New Zealand for 2 weeks. Firstly, let me start with the positives, the place is superb, great apartments and beautiful views overlooking a small marina. We were welcomed by Yvonne who I believe is the owner of the property we rented. Whitianga and the Coromandel is stunning so that...

Thank you for all the positives and taking time to share your views. We can't apologise enough for this mistake. It is unfortunate for us that the nicest people do break into the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms after paying for one, even with the signs on the floor. On this occasion we admit, we made a mistake with the room...

If you have kids they will love it especially on the ground floor where they can run around outside and its all fully fenced . the 2 bedroom apartment is huge and has everything you need in a close proximity.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience and it was a pleasure to host your stay.

Great location! Everything was close by. So clean and spacious. Children had enough private front yard to play and loved the swimming pool and hot spa. Yvonne and Paul were very friendly and helpful. Yvonne lent us two shovels for hot water beach which was very handy. Would highly recommend and will certainly stay there again in the future.

Thank you so much, the pleasure was all ours. We love it when our guests make the most of our facilities and we have spades, as well as life jackets and seats for the kayaks we hire out. The kayaks were a real hit on the lovely sunny days we have had, for a leisurely paddle down the waterways. We...

We chose Sovereign Pier based on reviews and were not disappointed. The apartment was wonderful!. We couldn't believe how spacious it was. It was clean and beautifully prepared for our stay including some milk in the fridge for that important first cup of tea! The view from the lounge and main bedroom was breathtaking. We would definitely come back again....

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Beautiful, modern, luxurious and comfortable accommodation. I would highly recommend Sovereign Pier if you are looking for a fabulous stay away from home. Just a few minutes outside of town, interestingly situated at the end of a waterway. Nice Summer of Winter.
