What a charming place. Lovely, pleasant hosts and individual cabins with lots of space, big, comfy beds, a spacious well equipped shower with plenty of hot water and parking right outside. Proper tea and coffee provided and a fridge and microwave and the wherewithal to eat in if required. And very reasonable too. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms would be quiet I should think.

Thank you Louise for your lovely review. It is a pleasure to have guests such as yourselves to stay and especially during the winter months. We try our best to make everything in the Cottages as simple and easy as possible, like good coffee, tea, good parking, free wifi and all the little things you need for a seamless stay. We are so glad you think it is reasonable as well! See you again soon!
Kind regards,
Anna.

Out of the many places my family and I stayed in during our tour of North Island in August, this place is the only place I am reviewing.
What a jewel...lovely cottages, beautiful garden and friendly hosts...wonderful beaches. This is the only place where I did not have to walk around in socks and a sweater as the heater made the cottage we stayed in warm and cosy.
Laundry is also available which is great for families.
Don't know what Hahei is like in summer but this place was quiet and peaceful in August, great for nature lovers.

We were in one of the "bungalows" near The Church Restaurant. Beautiful gardens off the small back deck. A great place to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (or two) with some cheese and fruit after a day of tramping. Each "bungalow" is unique and nicely, but eclectically appointed. There are no TV's in the rooms but there is a large community room with satellite TV if necessary. Laundry facilities are available.

Andre is a really great host - knowledgeable and accommodating. Towels and shovels are provided for those who want to go to Hot Water Beach.

The adjacent Church Restaurant is a separately owned, casual to fine dining restaurant with excellent food. Go to Cathedral Cove in the early morning to catch the rising sun reflecting off the rocks. The walk along the coast from Hahei beach to Cathedral Cove is spectacular. On your walk, make sure you take a detour down to Stingray Cove

Hi Two Nuggets,
Thank you for you lovely review of The Church Accommodation. You stayed in our Garden Studios (not bungalows) which are our most economical Cottages and also the smallest, hence why they have no TVs, all the other Cottages have TVs in them. The Studios are well equipped for most single or two night travellers, served with tea coffee, microwave, fridge, kettle, cutlery, crockery and glassware. We agree that the natural assets of the area compliment our garden atmosphere nicely here and the balconies are a great place to take breakfast or a wine during oyur stay.
Thanks again.
The Church Accommodation Team.

We stayed here for only one night, but wish we could have stayed for longer!

We arrived late due to some traffic in Auckland (the only place for traffic in the North Island!!) but the staff were so great and made late check in really easy.

We stayed in a studio apartment, which was delightfully cosy and felt like a little home away from home. It was very clean, with comfy beds and a lovely little balcony out to some beautiful gardens. We felt very rested the next day.

In the morning we were heading out to Cathedral Cove and the staff offered us some beach towels so as not to get ours dirty/wet, which was great and we just dropped them back on the way back past.

We would love to return for a stay if/when we come back and would highly recommend to others.

Hi Laura V,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay although only one night. Thank you for writing a review we appreciate it. Beach towels and spades are free for guest use even if you check out on the day you use them as you did. It's the little things we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
Thanks again.

We stayed here a couple of days in a bungalow in the church gardens. The place was cute, quirky and spacious with a lot of natural light streaming through the garden facing windows. It was nice and quiet and the staff were friendly. We were given a heater for the room since it was winter time, but it was still very cold.

Hi Mione,
Thank you for your review. We are sorry you did not come to reception for another heater as we did have many more if needed. We do try our best to ensure you have everything you ned in the Cottages and we do hope you return in summer one day when the beauty of Hahei will really win you over. Thanks again.
