This is a Bed and Breakfast! If you are looking for the cozy intimacy of visiting with the homes owners while enjoying their spectacular views and delicious food, this would be the place for you! Raewyn and Joseph are kind and knowledgeable about the area. Lovely people and a lovely place.

The view from the deck is something else, nothing like it that I know of in NZ. Add to that, gracious and exceptionally helpful hosts, Hahei Oceanfront has to be the No1 accommodation experience in Hahei and the best of its kind (boutique luxury accommodation) that I've seen in the entire North Island for mind.

If you are looking for a special local experience instead of a hotel chain environment, this is the place to stay in.

This exquisite and peaceful B&B on the ocean is well worth the stay. The owners are wonderful hosts and provide a delicious breakfast in the morning. The bedroom is clean, comfortable and has beautiful view of the ocean. We could not get enough of this stunning beach and views. It is a great area. The Church is a delicious restaurant.... More

The owners and hosts, Tom and Raewyn, have opened two bedrooms in their home to guests who are fortunate enough to book here. Their lovely, contemporary home sits high on a cliff above a breathtaking view of beach, bay and islands. Our bedroom had great sea views and was quite comfortable. The living areas including an outdoor deck are beautifully... More

We were recommended Hahei Oceanfront as the "best place on earth". So our expectations were set high. We chose the Coromandel as a second choice for the last few days in NZ because we felt the Bay of Islands would be too much driving. Well we were delighted on both fronts and will return in future. Hahei beach is beautiful.... More

23 Wigmore Crescent is a private house which the hosts live in. They rent out two bedrooms at the rear which are en suite with a shared galley area for making coffee. In all of the other genuinely luxury properties I have stayed in there is a clear separation between the hosts living space and the guests. With this property... More

No pictures can do this place justice...it's location and the view are second to none. When you add in amazing hosts in Jo and Raewyn and the perfectly designed accommodation you have a winning formula. We would also highly recommend: 1. The Hahei Explorer rib trip 2.
