“Extremely welcoming, excellent local knowledge”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Our hosts were extremely welcoming with excellent local knowledge. They told us of a simply wonderful, unspoilt beach that few others in the area had even heard of - finding this beach was a highlight of our North Island experience. They also drove us to Cathedral Cove car park to start our walk along the cliffs: the car park gets very full early in the day so this was very helpful. And they provided a shovel for our Hot Water Beach experience! Laundry was done for us at no extra charge.

Cathedral Cove is an hour’s walk, Hot Water Beach a 20 minute drive from the B&B. Coromandel town is an hour’s drive over the 309 gravel road, or a bit longer on a paved road.

Breakfasts were excellent and served outside on the big deck. There is an excellent hot tub that we used each night. Parking was easy and the wifi worked well.

We had a large room with a view out to the ocean. However, larger people may find the shower enclosure a challenge as it isn’t very big. The bed was big and comfortable and the area is quiet and dark - a good place to see stars on a moonless night.

This is an excellent and very welcoming B&B to explore the Coromandel area.

Our hosts recommended the Church restaurant, which is a 10 minute walk away; this restaurant was very good.

Stayed here in November and loved it. We had the Pa room with wonderful views. Great hosts and don't forget the spade for digging at Hot Water Beach which is great fun and should not be missed!
The walk to Cathedral Cove is quite spectacular. A great base for this area.

We stayed for two nights at this B&B, in 'the Pa', with a stunning view of the Hahei bay. Very comfortable rooms. Extremely friendly hosts, who clearly love to accomodateand please their guests. Memorable breakfast out on the deck on both days, also offering a chance to chat with other guests. A place to come back to ...
Apart from wonderful nearby Cathedral Cove - but do not underestimate the walk to/from the parking lot ...), Hahei itself has limited options to visit, but a morning or evening walk on the beach is the perfect thing to start or end the day

We spent 2 nights at the Hahei Horizon hosted by Peter and Kay. We stayed in the Pa room which has a balcony overlooking Hahei beach and a superbly comfortable bed! Breakfast was excellent and served on the deck overlooking the beach.Peter kindly drove us to the car park near Cathedral Cove from where we walked down (about 35 minutes each way). The walk allowed us some spectacular views and we took some great photographs. As suggested by Peter, we carried on to Hahei Beach which was also a lovely walk. Remember to take plenty of water!
In the afternoon we went to Hot Water Beach, which was a bit overcrowded - we have been spoiled by the empty beaches thus far in New Zealand, but we dug our obligatory hole with the guest house spade and felt the hot water! We therefore returned to Hahei Beach for a swim which was just what we needed.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our hosts hospitality (and the excellent wifi) and would thoroughly recommend it. Our only adverse comment was the tiny shower,hence the loss of a star in the ratings, but that is fairly minor in the scheme of things!

Thank you, Peter & Kay, for this extraordinary stay in your wonderful place, thank you for the friendly welcome, for helpful advice to plan some special excursions in your region, for the fine breakfast table, for a well working WiFi and for interesting conversations. We will surely be back at this lovely place, whenever we will be in NZ again. Droli & Andi Baumgartner from Switzerland

Hahei Horizon was our first hosted B&B experience in New Zealand and surpassed our expectations. Our room had a fabulous view out over the Bay and breakfast on the terrace was a delight with plenty of choice and home made preserves. Peter and Kay were the perfect hosts and looked after us extremely well. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Peter and Kay made us feel very welcome, giving us plenty of advice on where to go and what to see. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view out over the bay. Food was excellent and the hot water beach was one of our holiday highlights.
