About this Holiday House

Experience unparalleled relaxation for up to 20 people at this singular Coromandel Peninsula property located in the beautiful beach town of Hahei. This unique group of houses, known to its owners as ‘Te Rawhiti’ (a Maori phrase evocative of the rising sun) offers a distinct combination of peace, space and outdoor fun, with a sublime location on a plateau overlooking the entire village of Hahei, and a unique layout comprising four houses, each with its own character, outlook and amenities. Rent only the Main House (3 double rooms, 1 twin room and 1 single room) from $800 a night ($640 off-peak), add on other houses, or rent the entire property for a total of 11 bedrooms across four houses. For rates, please contact the owner on the enquiry form. The main architect-designed five-bedroom house has expansive views of Mercury Bay, Hahei village and the surrounding countryside. The property is just a five-minute walk to Hahei village (where you will find an excellent general store, a popular indoor/outdoor pub/microbrewery, a family-friendly cafe with great food and coffee, and self-service fuel) and another two minutes to stunning Hahei Beach. You never need to use your car. The walkway leading to the world-famous Cathedral Cove is accessible via a nearby summer shuttle bus during peak season, or you can walk to the start of the track in 30 minutes from Te Rawhiti, 20 minutes from the beach or store. Allow another 30-40 minutes for the walkway to the cove itself. The large lawn, landscaped gardens and peaceful setting of Te Rawhiti make this a special holiday setting for groups of family and friends. The main house's fully equipped modern kitchen and 10-seater indoor and outdoor dining tables make for wonderful long chatty meals - including dinners under the stars. Lounge and read a book on the spacious patio, nod off in a gently swaying hammock (there are two on the premises) or enjoy cricket with the kids on the house’s enormous front lawn. Rent the entire property for added access to: 1. A contemporary 2-bedroom Lockwood house nicknamed ‘The Blue House’ with beautiful deck and views, comfortable furnishings and a full kitchen (sleeps four - 1 queen room + 1 twin room) 2. A beautifully sited, newly renovated ‘Radar House’ with stunning views, its own cooking, bathroom and laundry facilities, and a large lawn and veranda for relaxing, sunbathing and birdwatching (sleeps three - 1 queen room + 1 king single room) 3. A charming and quiet ‘Miner’s Cottage’ which offers serenity on the rise next to the Blue House. (sleeps 4 - 1 queen room + 1 twin room. This cottage is mainly suitable for a couple or family with young children as the adjacent bedrooms lack a separating door. The local town centre of Whitianga is easily accessible by car, either via a 25-minute drive or a short drive to the beloved local ferry, and the famed natural springs of Hot Water Beach are only a short drive or bike ride away.

Amazing house!! This property is perfect for large groups, each house providing enough privacy for everyone. Very close to Hahei village but a good distance away from neighbours. We will definitely be back next time we visit the Coromandel!

We rented Te Rawhiti for 3 nights with extended family to celebrate a significant Birthday. Mary was so helpful from start to finish with all our alterations in plans. I'd really rather keep this a big secret from everyone, but my conscience won't let me. It is beautiful! Far exceeding our expectations. The setting is wonderful with huge sweeping garden and grassy area, and beyond the beautiful views of the sea and coastal Hahei. We stayed only in the main house, but the cottages all look lovely too. The house was really comfortable and well appointed for a large group. Hot bath under the stars, hot and cold shower outside plus all amenities inside. What more can anyone want! Highly but secretly recommended.. Don't tell a soul. Jan C
Such an amazing property. Everything you want for a beach stay and more. Allowed people to have their own space but also come together for meals and fun. Lots of areas for kids to play outside and enjoy the sunshine. Close to the shops and beach. Great property managers. AMAZING.
