“Wonderful B&B on the beach!”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Hahei Oceanfront is a terrific place to stay. Joe and Raewyn are excellent hosts and provide a wonderful breakfast each morning with great coffee. My husband and I stayed in the Mahurangi room, which has a comfortable bed and a view of the ocean. The property is incredible and just steps from the beach. Unfortunately, our first day in Hahei was in the midst of one of their worst storms in 40 years, but it was still cozy and Joe & Raewyn made us feel at home with a welcome glass of wine. They offered recommendations in the area, as well as shovels for hot water beach and drove us to the parking lot to visit Cathedral Cove. This B&B is a magical place to stay.

A lovely room overlooking the ocean with very friendly hosts who went out of their way to make our stay interesting and enjoyable. Breakfast was great with a different mix of fresh fruit each day, Greek yoghurt and home made granola as well as cooked options. The beach is good for swimming and the Explorer boat takes you out to interesting islands and caverns around the bay. A couple of good local restaurants - especially liked the wood-fired pizza at Purangi winery and the amusing fast-paced spiel from the winery owner is worth listening to while your pizza is baking. Take a trip to Whitianga and to Coromandel town for the very special scenic railway.

This place will stump you. Literally! Nested right in front of the beach, this place is to die for. The place is actually a B&B (bed and breakfast) but it makes you feel worth a million, i.e. if you like a little homeliness combined with an upmarket beachfront hotel experience. The place is simply amazing. Very neat, very simple and very elegant. The couple running this place are very friendly and warm. Raven makes amazing breakfast and shortbread. They will make you feel so comfortable that it will be difficult for you to leave. The view from the front porch makes you feel like you are in a picture postcard. I shouldn't say much. Just go an experience it yourself.

Room Tip: There are two rooms. All are great. But the suite is the best.

Hahei Oceanfront has one of the best beachfront views in the world. We arrived and stayed in the upstairs suite. We were greeted by a amazing view of brilliant stars and the gentle sound of waves breaking just outside our window. In the morning we awoke to a brilliant sunrise with golden beams of light playing off the tortoise blue water. It is in a excellent location near Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach.

Room Tip: Go for the upstairs suite!

We stayed here for a short honeymoon - an excellent escape and very relaxing. Superb view from the balcony and Raewyn and Joe were gracious hosts. They shared a welcoming glass of wine and some snacks while filling us in on the history and highlights of the area. Two wonderful standouts were breakfast (especially Raewyn's patented muesli which we now make at home!) and the clean, luxurious rooms. A home away from home with lovely hosts.

It's difficult to put into words how amazing and stunning this property is. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to a most spectacular vista from the deck of the Hahei Oceanfront while snacking on homemade lemon cake and coffee served by our most gracious hosts. I believe that heaven surely looks like this. Raewyn and Joe are the ultimate hosts who cater to every traveller's need. Their house is stunning and located overlooking a most peaceful Hahei beach. Their attention to detail from our Canadian flag on the table to linen napkins to comfy bathrobes to flat whites to driving us to the car park at Cathedral Cove to delicious homemade breakfast....we could go on and on. Raewyn and Joe have mastered the art of catering to every traveller. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be recommending this luxurious accommodation. Thank you Raewyn and Joe. We loved our stay with you.

Room Tip: Every room is great!

My wife and I got engaged while staying here. They helped me plan the perfect engagement and even made a secret picnic basket for us. I have seen several beaches around the world and this is my favorite. Great host and great breakfast!
