B&B bliss in the heart of Hahei

The view overlooking Hahei Beach from the deck of Hahei Horizon Bed and Breakfast

Hahei Horizon Bed and Breakfast is a purpose-built B&B located right in the heart of Hahei, near Cathedral Cove on the eastern side of the Coromandel Peninsula. Nestled amongst native trees on the hill, it offers amazing views of the sea and surrounding bush from every room overlooking the beautiful bay at Hahei. Husband-and-wife team Peter and Kay Harrison are friendly and welcoming with wonderful down-to-earth Kiwi hospitality.

Guests can choose between two spacious guestrooms upstairs or a self-contained studio downstairs. The two guestrooms, “The Cove” (upstairs) and “The Pa” (middle floor) both offer spectacular views of Hahei, the sea and the islands. The Bach is a cosy self-contained downstairs studio which sleeps up to four guests with a queen bed, two single beds, an ensuite, kitchenette, BBQ, private patio with sea views, ideal for a family with children.

Peter and Kay are wonderful hosts who love sharing their special home with guests from all around the world. With stunning views of the coast, it’s hard not to feel relaxed in this peaceful haven retreat. All rooms are large with quality linen and guests can enjoy all the modern amenities one would expect in a fine bed and breakfast along with beach towels, wireless internet, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge.

My husband and I stayed in The Bach on our first night as guests occupied the upstairs bedrooms but were moved upstairs to The Cove for our second night. We arrived at night but the pathway which leads to The Bach is well lit so we easily found our way to our accommodation with the help of Peter and Kay. The room is large and spacious and open plan in style with beds, couch, TV, dining table and chairs and kitchenette. The outdoor table and chairs and BBQ area on the private patio is a perfect spot for families to enjoy lunch and dinner.

Breakfast on the deck of Hahei Horizon Bed and Breakfast with a view

The Cove room is elegantly styled and located on the top floor so offers the best view in the house. You also get your own off-street parking with private guest entrance so it’s almost a stand alone accommodation. The house is built in such a way that you can enjoy views from the sun windows looking out towards Hahei Beach and the same view can also be seen from your own private deck.

Included in your stay is of course a delicious cooked breakfast served on their large sunny deck offering stunning sea views for you to enjoy while sipping your morning cup of tea or coffee. If the weather’s not suitable, you can also retreat inside to the dining room or if you’d like some privacy, breakfast can be enjoyed from the comfort of your room. Guests can choose from a selection of fruit, cereals, yoghurt, breads and there’s a variety of bacon, eggs, french toast prepared and cooked to your liking by the talented Kay in the kitchen. Their friendly dog will even come to greet you if you’re an animal lover.

Hahei Horizon B&B is located within easy walking distance to the beach, cafes, close to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach which a spade is provided for if you’d like to go dig out a hot pool for yourself to bathe in. Alternatively, there’s a spa on the deck for guests to enjoy where you can soak away the day and revel in the amazing starry night. Whether you want to visit the local sights or simply relax on holiday, this bed and breakfast provides the perfect base to do all of that and is suitable for couples or families.
