The Church is just a really beautiful quiet property with scenic gardens, and just a very rustic vibe. It's in a good central location, within a short driving distance to hot water beach and cathedral cove (walkable). It's about ten minutes walking distance to the beach, which is gorgeous. Hahei in general is just a really peaceful, beautiful place.
Our room / cottage was very spacious, with a free parking spot located right out front. Reception is just a short walk away, and times are posted for when it is appropriate to visit both hot water beach and cathedral cove. We happened to get there just as reception was closing, but the lady at the desk was really gracious, and she showed us to our room before closing down for the night.
The room was a little bit cold when we got there (just because it was cold outside to begin with), but there is a little room heater that helps to create a bit of warmth. Wifi was not the strongest, and the room did not have a TV, so the place was more of a 'getaway' from reality than we expected. Not really a big deal since we were only there for one night.
Located right next door is a restaurant - also called the Church (and located inside an old church). The food here is excellent, and we would absolutely recommend it seeing that is a skip and a hop away from where you are staying.
Once again, this was a very beautiful place and we were glad we stayed here!
