My wife and I stayed in one of the cottage units. It was immaculate and very comfortable. We were impressed with the cleanliness of not only the inside but the exterior as well. The Wi-Fi in our unit, #7, was not functional but when we needed Wi-Fi we walked a short distance to the reception area where there is a...

The Church is just a really beautiful quiet property with scenic gardens, and just a very rustic vibe. It's in a good central location, within a short driving distance to hot water beach and cathedral cove (walkable). It's about ten minutes walking distance to the beach, which is gorgeous. Hahei in general is just a really peaceful, beautiful place. Our...

This was my favorite place to stay over my 2 week stay in New Zealand with my wife. It has nice facilities, a beautiful garden and wonderful staff. We have a breakfast tray brought up the night before so we could have breakfast in bed before watching the sunrise at cathedral cove. I would love to go back but would...

We really enjoyed our three nights in a Garden Cottage. The gardens were lovely and the cottage had everything you need. The area is just stunning. We particularly enjoyed eating at nearby Hot Waves Cafe at Hot Water Beach and the Cathedral Cove Kayak trip. Hot Water Beach was okay but a bit manic - we probably should have timed...

Hey Sue- Thanks so much for your review and comments on our gardens- we think they are lovely as well:). We do agree that HotWater Beach can be prety maic- our advice is to time your visit with a low tide that occurs around sunrise- that is a beautiful time to be at the beach and you're guaranteed no crowds...

We stayed at the Church Accommodation for two nights during our honeymoon in New Zealand -- and it was by far our favorite place! Our hosts were friendly and had tips about great local hikes and eats, and the property is only a short walk to beautiful Hahei Beach. We also used Hahei as a base for travels to nearby...

I stayed in a self-contained apartment. The place had a kitchen and I was able to prepare a simple meal. The guy at reception was very helpful and helped me to book a tour on the Hahei Explorer (which is an excellent tour).

We selected the 'house' as it was the best value for money for our group of 6 to be found in (the delightful village of) Hahei. We arrived rather late and the house was left open for us by the very friendly management. What a pleasant surprise! The accommodation was tastefull, spacious and spotless. The small private garden with gas...
