This was our first time in New Zealand and also our first ever experience of a bed and breakfast. My wife and I were extremely pleased that we chose Hahei Oceanfront to end our amazing New Zealand trip. Joe and Raewyn were excellent hosts and took very good care of us from our arrival to departure. We arrived just before 7pm and they made some calls to the beachside deli to make sure we had food before everything closed for the night. They know the area very well and were able to help with dinner reservations and suggestions for activities. Breakfast was delicious and served on the deck each morning overlooking the ocean. Raewyn made homemade passion fruit yogurt, granola cereal, fresh fruits and delicious hot breakfasts of egg, mushroom, and bacon omelette rolls, and scrambled eggs over toast. We also loved our 6pm wine and cheese time to get to know the others staying in the house. It really felt welcoming and it was a pleasure to get to know Joe and Raewyn. We stayed in the Mahurangi room which has the 2nd best view. If you can afford the suite though it is really quite amazing. Joe and Rawyn offered us the use of their 2 person kayak and also spades (shovels) when we went to the hot water beach. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean was magical. We highly, highly recommend this B&B to everyone!!! Though it may seem pricey to some it is worth every dollar! The value is all in the quality of service, friendly social environment, location and amazing house amenities. We can't wait to go back and visit them again.
