The reason for our visit was the Whitianga Scallop Festival and we wanted something within walking distance but with amenities and a quiet location. We were met with a friendly greeting and provided with useful information about the area and festival itself. There were leisure facilities available for use but that was not the reason for our visit so we...

Many thanks for taking time to share your experience at Sovereign Pier and for taking part in the spectacular Scallop Festival that the town brings to the Coromandel each year. This really is a fun event to attend, tasting scallops cooked every which way and listening to the great variety of bands performing, not to mention sampling some of the...

Fantastic view. Spacious unit. Had a great time. The apartment was very clean. Beds comfy. View just amazing. Plenty of parking for boat and ute, with garage to lock away fishing gear. Only let down was lack of basics (but with the supermarket within walking distance that was easily remedied).

Thank you so much for such an awesome review. So glad you decided to use our wonderful 20 person spa pool in the rain, as even though it rained for almost 5 days, with only the occasional break, it was still a rather a warm temperature, ideal for relaxing in the spa. We do hope you can come again in...

Whitianga was our last destination on our Coromandel trip and we decided to splash out. The apartment we stayed in was incredible - I just love waking up and seeing boats out the window. Real "lifestyles of the rich and famous" stuff... thanks so much and we will be back.

It is great to hear you enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing view over our own private marina in the Whitianga waterways. I think we all make the mistake of trying to cover alot of ground when we travel, so it is an excellent idea to end your stay at Sovereign Pier for 3 days or more, just sitting and taking...

Our apartment was just perfect. Clean, spacious and beautifully furnished, kitchen very well equipped, lovely linen on the bed. Yvonne had gone above and beyond and lit the lovely gas fire before we arrived and the ambience walking in was great. Lovely outlook over the waterway marina. We will definitely choose Sovereign Pier again.

Lovely 2 bed apartment with everything we needed for 2 couples. Very modern and clean. Great view over the canal front. Quite close to town center and supermarket. Great base for our drives around the Coramandel district.

You are very welcome. We are ecstatic that we selected the villa for your family that had a few extras, such as baking tins and that they were put to good use.

We are so glad the children enjoyed the lap pool and the 20 person spa pool. They are located in such a wonderful peaceful place right on the waterfront where you can watch the fish jumping. Thanks for taking time to review our services and we welcome you back for another stay soon.
