“The best start of our holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We loved being there. Magnificant views from the room and the house. And the best hosts and the best breakfast so far. We had a school of dophins playing around, when we took the boattrip from the beach just down the house. The best way to get over your jetlag, go Hahei Oceanfront.

There is a lot to do and beautiful places to see on the Coromandel peninsula, but it was hard to drag yourself away from the spectacular beachfront ocean views from the terrace at Hahei Oceanfront. Hahei beach is breathtakingly beautiful.
The accommodation was wonderful, the breakfasts delicious and the hosts, Joe and Raewyn, are gracious, thoughtful, good fun and knowledgeable tourist guides. We were hosted to and appreciated pre dinner drinks and NZ cheese and use of the kayak.
We were there in the second week of December 2012. It was quiet, relaxing and the weather was perfect for both the beach and for walking.
Thanks to our hosts and to D for finding such a great place to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary.
We loved it.

We stayed here for 2 nights, and we must say this was the highlight of our honeymoon. The owners are so welcoming and kind. They greeted us with a smile right away. Each day they would make great recommendations for different activities and where to go for lunch and dinner. They treated us with drinks and nibbles, and their breakfasts were unbelievable. The pictures of their location, no matter how beautiful, do not do it justice. This is an untouched paradise, unmatched by any other location on coromandel. It truly is an oceanfront with the most spectacular view imaginable. There is no better B&B. I highly recommend Hahei Oceanfront for your next luxury vacation.

Room Tip: Loved the Mahurangi room!

What a beautiful setting. Views are breathtaking, breakfast delectable, venue is stylish and modern, with beautiful simplicities. The hosts were gracious and very helpful and welcoming. We had a short stay, but would love to return to this little peace of heaven. Adel and Stefan (South Africa)

We had a short stay at Oceanfront before the start of a busy weekend. What a fabulous place to catch your breath. The beach is beautiful and the accommodation well appointed and the atmosphere serene and restful Joe and Raewyn were the most gracious hosts with Raewyn cooking us a beautiful breakfast and Joe making a wonderful coffee. We felt we came as stangers to Oceanfront and left as friends.

Well, what can I say - this accommodation just had to be the best that we stayed in during our three weeks in New Zealand! The position is to die for. The darling hosts were a fantastic double act! The rooms beautifully clean and the beds very comfortable. Our breakfasts, on the terrace overlooking the sea, were simply delicious and varied each morning. A perfect situation to explore the region. Thank you Joe for the loan of the Kayak! What fun that was. We will certainly be back if we are in the area again.

Such a great spot, overlooking the glorious Hahei beach, and a short walk to the pah from which you can look all the way down the beach one way and at the sunrise the other (recommended for an early start but it's much easier with a touch of jetlag).

Joe and Raewyn are great hosts, immediatly making you feel totally comfortable in their home and serving a top quality breakfast, great coffee and innovative pre-dinner canapes.
