We booked into a 3 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed villa on the top floor, facing the waterfront and stayed two nights. Our group was made up of 5 adults - myself and my husband, our daughter who is in her 20's and my husbands brother and sister-in-law from the UK. We were all totally blown away when we were shown the villa on arriving and just knew this was superior accommodation. Decor and furnishings were of exceptionally high quality and modern. Everything was top quality and beautifully arranged with a lovely kitchen (fully equipped, heaps of storage), dinning suite, lounge and 3 lovely bedrooms (all with own tv) and two lovely bathrooms. The villa was extremely light and spacious. Views from the deck overlooked the boats in their berths and the lovely garden and pool areas below. Each villa has its own enclosed garage with remote controlled door.
There was not a thing we disliked. The villa had everything we could have wished for from the kitchen to even the balcony deck, with its own BBQ and a lovely table and chairs and even additional loungers and chairs that we did not even use.
The beds were lovely and firm and of a high standard. All 3 bedrooms had king size beds. The main bedroom had an ensuite bathroom with full facilities (free standing shower) and also a walk in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms had double wardrobes with sliding doors and the bathroom was exceptionally spacious. The bathroom had a shower over the bath. It is not on the main waterfront in Whitianga, but on the waterways in one of the suburbs (not far out but close to town) and it was beautiful and relaxing and totally peaceful. Complex has tennis courts, beautiful large swimming pool and spa pool and total complex is fenced with a remote controlled gate at the entrance to the complex.
Highly recommend this complex to families with children and also others who want to get away with extended family or friends. You will not be disappointed.

We would definitely stay at this complex again!

If you want a really lovely place to stay, while visiting Whitianga, then this p[lace will be an excellent choice. We stayed in a one bedroom villa, with a fabulous, modern fully equipped kitchen, a huge dinning room/lounge area, along with a gorgeous log gas fire. The bedroom had views, looking out over the waterways and the bathroom was very tasteful in design. The villa also came with a laundry with clothes dryer etc. The villa was spotlessly clean and looked brand new, the oven looked as though it had never been used. We sat on our huge deck every morning, over looking the marina, had breakfast and watched the sunrise. Each villa has it"s own garage and there is a gym, swimming pool, a heated spa and the whole complex is gated for security. I would highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway, a luxury break, or a special family holiday. I would definitely stay here again, it was just awesome.

Have just got back from 4 nights at Sovereign Pier on the Waterways, and loved every minute of our stay. Fantastically appointed apartments, stunning views over the waterways, private and secure. Amazing pool and jacuzzi area, well equipped gym and close to town. We will definitely be back to stay here again.

We have just got back from our honeymoon staying 5 days in Apartment 34. The apartments are all new , spacious, trendy, and very well set up. Our top floor apartment got all of the afternoon sun, and we spent a lot of time sitting on the deck in the evenings having a few vino's and taking in the surroundings (there were some pretty cool launches parked outside our apartment!!). As it got cooler with the sun going down, it was off to the massive outdoor spa pool overlooking the canels. Its very relaxing sitting in the jacuzzi with a wine or two (in plastic cups -as you weren't allowed glass!!), with the only noise being the fish splashing around in the canels catching insects. An advantage with staying there now is that there are quite a few empty apartments which haven't sold (due to the recession), so we pretty much had the whole resort to ourselves....total bliss. We had a bbq on our deck, and the new kitchens had everything you needed to cook your own meals. The site manager was very nice and helpful, and we will definately be back. I would recommend to anyone who wants a luxury apartment at what I considered to be very cheap rates for what you get!
