About this Holiday House

Experience unparalleled relaxation for up to 20 people at this Coromandel Peninsula property located in the beautiful beach town of Hahei. The unique group of houses, known 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 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 $850 a night ($765 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 world-famous Cathedral Cove is currently closed due to slips, but meanwhile there are many boat tours and kayak options to take you there. When repaired in 2024 the track will again be 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 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 property) or enjoy cricket with the kids on the house’s large front lawn. And if you want to fly in by helicopter, you can land it on the 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. Each house on the Te Rawhiti property is equipped with speaker systems with aux cables for music, as well as ample power for charging devices. No TVs are provided but the Main House has fibre broadband with unlimited data and the Blue House has high-speed rural Wi-Fi with limited data.The Miner's Cottage can usually access the Blue House's network.

Loved the location and all the beaches around to visit The houses were perfect for our large extended family with plenty of space on the lawn for the children to have water fights and games of football.

Amazing Stay, special location
Deborah Jamieson
Absolutely LOVED this place. It was a perfect get-away for our family. The 2 small cottages were perfect for our kids and grandkids and the space inside and out was awesome in the main house. All accommodation was clean and welcoming. A close walk to Ha Hei shops and beach meant we could all walk down together and the big dining table meant family meals were just as they should be and many of us enjoyed the outside bath! We will definitely be back!
