We booked this online, and we're not sure what to expect. We were amazed when we got there - the location and service were amazing. The rooms are beautifully done. The features from the old church building are a nice touch to complete the design. Will recommend highly.

Thank you Samyap for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are glad you booked online and direct through our website which is the best thing to do! The old features of the buildings with the wooden joinery, stained glass windows, vintage furniture and other little touches really give you the feeling that its not like any...

When we booked the Church, we thought it looked interesting, but on arrival it exceeded all our expectations. A beautiful, well-equipped 'little' (actually quite spacious!) cabin with its own private deck, set in lush tropical gardens, just a walk from the amenities and super beach in Hahei. The staff were lovely, warm and welcoming, and after almost three weeks travelling...

Hi Karenwashere2016, What a lovely review! You sounded like you made the most of the stunning Hahei beach and the short walk to Cathedral Cove! Your three week trip was sure action packed and we are glad we could assist in keeping up with the laundry! Privacy is a big feature here and we are constantly trying to plant new...

Ive already recommended The Church to friends, we originally planned to stay one night, but immediately extended our stay for another night.

Thank you Oliver G! We are so glad you chose the woodfired cottage for your stay as the ambiance of the fire really makes you feel relaxed. Hotwater Beach late at night is a must do and you had great weather for it too! We were happy to have you stay and hope you will return again soon! Thanks again,...

Within minutes of finishing our stay at The Church in 2015, we were making plans for a longer stay in 2016. We were glad we did and our latest stop here was everything we could have hoped for - great accommodation, friendly staff, an excellent on-site restaurant and an easy walk to the beach. We will definitely be returning!

We stayed at The Church Accommodation in Hahei, NZ for 4 nights in April 2016. We had a spacious, self contained cabin with a wood stove. It was lovely, quiet and peaceful. The view of plants and trees from the window was special...so much green...and so much bird song. The kitchen was adequate for preparing breakfast and snacks, and I...

My girlfriend and I decided on staying at the Church Accommodation over our anniversary. When we arrived, we found the place and room beautiful.

We visited The Church for one night during a longer trip in New Zealand. From the outside the cottage looked very basic but inside it had a lot of character and a beautiful garden at the back.

A wonderful place to stay. The staff were more than helpful and friendly. We had a studio and it was lovely and peaceful.
