Hahei is not the most populace place you can visit but it is one of the nicest.
This small village on the Coromandel Peninsular on NZ's North Island is a great place to stay to enjoy the water based attractions in the area. You are close to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach and a quick drive from Hahei beach itself which, with its array of off-shore islands is one of the most beautiful places to sit and watch the world go by.
I have nothing but praise for the people who run The Church Accommodation, they do the extra little things that make a difference like having a large bin outside the office full of shovels for you to borrow. Don't ask they make sure you do it before you head off to Hot Water Beach a few hours either side of Low Tide.
The accommodation comprises small self contained cottages each with a private verandah that are comfortable and well appointed and blend in well with the rustic charm of the property. The Church is now the Restaurant which has an excellent menu. it is not an Intercontinental but for what it is and where it is it is truly excellent.
It is the little things that make a difference as we were leaving we mentioned that we were heading south around the Bay of Plenty and would be looking for somewhere to stay for 3 - 4 nights. We received the best advice we had all week when the owners suggested we try Mount Maunganui about 3 hours away which was brilliant. They were also great at helping us retrieve an item we left in the room. I can not fault the service we received from The Church Accommodation at Hahei.
