Spent 12 days traveling around the North Island and decided to spend our last 4 nights at Sovereign on the Pier. The apartments are in a new complex on the canal. They are well decked out with everything you need and a washer plus dryer was perfect as it was towards the end of holiday. Our 2 bedroom apartment was...

Fantastic villa. Absolutely huge!! Wonderful bedrooms both with ensuites. Comfy beds and lots of extra blankets etc. The kitchen was incredible. I want to move in there! We had a blast relaxing and kayaking and cruising around Whittianga. Only thing I would change is the blinds in the bedrooms let too much light in so couldnt sleep in. (I put...

Wow! Great comments, thank you and we really do appreciate the feedback. Some villas owners (unfortunately), do prefer the two separate blind, along this rather large ranchslider on the entire side of the bedroom, to make them easier to lift, and I can understand this could be annoying to you. We hope it did not detract too much from your...

High standard, self catering accommodation in an out of centre location on the waterways. Gated accommodation has garages for vehicles and boat ramps onto the canals. Lap pool and outdoor spa shared between several villas can be noisy if you are situated right by the pool.

Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience. I am surprised you found the pool noisy as most of the day our guests are out, spending time enjoying the amazing sights and adventures the Coromandel has to offer. We do strictly enforce a 9pm closure of the pool, so we ensure no person's sleep is disturbed. We...

These apartments are right on the water. The canals provide a link out to the ocean and you can launch your boat from the resort. There is also a gym, hot pool and swimming pool. The apartment is fully kitted out and very luxurious. My only slight comment would be that there is not much natural light (in the downstairs...

The room was clean and spacious, and only a short drive to the shops. There was a great view out to the waterways that made for a nice afternoon of relaxation. We were travelling with an infant and found the room to be setup well enough that we did not need to worry about him breaking anything.
