I stayed in a self-contained apartment. The place had a kitchen and I was able to prepare a simple meal. The guy at reception was very helpful and helped me to book a tour on the Hahei Explorer (which is an excellent tour). The apartment is cozy and I would recomnend it to folks looking for a clean, comfortable base...

The church at the front USA restaurant independently run from the accommodation.Restaurant service is slow, the accommodation is the opposite, quick and efficient. Rooms in the main are individual timber buildings well fitted and equipped.

We selected the 'house' as it was the best value for money for our group of 6 to be found in (the delightful village of) Hahei. We arrived rather late and the house was left open for us by the very friendly management. What a pleasant surprise! The accommodation was tastefull, spacious and spotless. The small private garden with gas...

We (my husband, daughter and son-in-law) stayed a night here. The accommodation was lovely. We had a room each with a queen-size bed, a tiolet and shower. There was a table and chairs, fridge and tiny kitchenette. The best part was the private deck with views of the garden. All fittings in the room (windows, doors) were from another era,...

This is third or fourth time we have stayed at The Church. Our own little piece of heaven. So quiet apart from the whoosh of the wood pigeons flying overhead in our own private garden. The cottage was perfect for the two of us although it sleeps four. Clean, even smells cleans when you walk in the french doors. Anna...

The units are very nice and clean with a little patio outside where we had our breakfast. We also had dinner at the Church; staff and food was very good. The rooms are not full sound proof but that was not an issue for us.

Relax in a cozy cottage as your headquarters for hikes to Cathedral Cove, Hot Sands Beach and New Chums Beach. They also feature the best restaurant in the area. You are literally walking distance from a beautiful beach and hikes for all levels of participants.
