I was looking for somewhere to stay to escape Auckland for the weekend and this was just the place! After spending the weekend driving all around the Coromandel, I think Hahei is probably the pick of the bunch. The beach is beautiful, a couple of nice cafes, really close to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach and The Church is just an awesome little place to stay. I booked a separate cottage - more private that the studios. It was tucked away in the bush a little with a private veranda to sit and enjoy afternoon tea and breakfast. The bathroom was spacious, the bed was a kingsize so very comfy and the little heater in the room meant it was lovely and warm at night. There was also a Tv in the room but only had 3 channels so if your traveling alone and have an iPad, I recommend taking it to watch a movie on! There is a little kitchenette in the room, but only a microwave, toaster, fridge and kettle - enough to make yourself breakfast but not dinner. Only downside is that there was no sink (other than in bathroom and you don't really want to wash your dishes in the bathroom sink!). Staff were really helpful, and it was lovely to wake in the morning to hear the birds. Really peaceful and relaxing - perfect whether your traveling alone or as a couple. Highly recommend.

Stayed: May 2012

Hahei is the best place to stay when you want to visit the East of the peninsula. You are close to Cathedral Cove, you can even leave the car behind and walk a bit extra from Hahei beach to the track. Hot Water Beach is close by. And the perfect lunch you will find at Colenso a little bit south on the SH 25. Look out for the sign. To explore the pensinsula well you'll need a car !!

The people who run The Church are very friendly. You can borrow a spade for Hot Water Beach, there are beach towels and good laundry facilities. I did not have much contact with them, because you have your own unit in the garden.

The Room (I had a attached studio, nr 3) is small, basic and partly self contained with a nice private terras with beautifull plants and flowers. The bed is fine.
You can't cook yourself a meal, but there is a fridge, watercooker and toaster.
The bathroom is quit small and tiny with a horrible showercurtain. The floor get wet a lot when showering.
Because of the attached unit and very thin walls, one night (till 2.00 am) I could not sleep because of partying neighbours with friends.

I will come back but next time I'll choose a detatched unit in the garden for more privacy.

Room Tip: Choose for a detatched unit for the neighbours noice

We almost missed staying here just on way our ot HaHei, it is a collection of Cottages, all beautifully kept and overlooking gardens to the rear. First class Restaurant attached, you must go to hot water beach, ask at reception and they will provide a spade [to dig your own hot tub] also beach towels f.o.c

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.

Room Tip: Make sure to take a spade when you go to Hot Water Beach
