The owner of this place is very friendly. She had left the keys and a note for us as we checked in after the reception hours. The cottage is extremely spacious with all amenities like microwave, iron board etc. The breakfast was kept in our room and fridge for the next day. It includes bread, jam, condiments, orange juice, cereals, coffee, hot chocolate, fruits. There are free beach towels and spades which you can use at the hot water beach. The rooms have a small sit out area and a private garden which I absolutely loved for having breakfast.The owner allowed us for a slight late check out. Overall I would recommend this place if you are visiting coromandel beach or hot water beach.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Hey Rashi-
Thanks for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your breakfast out on the balcony- what a fantastic way to start the day. Hope your last day in NZ was fantastic and we look forward to welcoming you back here one day.

Our room was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It is set in a lovely garden. All rooms offer a lovely balcony with outdoor seating.The staff/owner were helpful and friendly. The property had a restaurant which we ate at twice. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise to the alternatives elsewhere where all you could really find available was fish and chips and pizza.

Room Tip: Corner rooms would provide a quieter position.

HI Suanne,
Thanks for your review and for commenting on our gardens- they are a never ending source of work and enjoyment for us... and just enjoyment for our guests and birdlife :)
I will be sure to pass your comments on to the restaurant as well.
Hope to see you back here again sometime soon.

Stayed in one of the self contained cottages with a veranda equipped with table and chairs. The accommodation was beautiful decked out with special attention to detail. Lovely gardens, peaceful surroundings, 5 mins walk to beach. Very helpful owners. A must stay.

We booked a 4 persion chalet. It was clean, well maintained and quiet. Sitting on the veranda we overlooked the gardens and not other chalets.Which gives a feelng of complete privacy.

The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.

Hahei has a beautiful beach, and is convenient for Hot Water Beach and Cathedral cove.

If we visit the Coromandel pennsula again I would not hesitate in staying at the the Church.

We recently booked at the Church Accommodation and stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the beautiful gardens. The lady was very welcoming and the room was cute with its pitched ceiling, very clean and had everything that we needed. No TV in the room but one was available in the shared lounge if you really needed it. We would definitely recommend staying here, the area is beautiful and there is lots to do and a great cafe not too far away.

Thanks Geraldine, for your review. I'll be sure to pass your comments onto Jemma who was in the office that day.
We do have TV's in all our larger cottages- but it is nice to have a bit of a break form that and enjoy the gardens isn't it?
