Hahei Beach (arguably one of New Zealand’s best) is the gateway to the world famous Cathedral Cove and less than quarter of an hour’s drive to Hot Water Beach.  Hawley’s Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of the Cove and in busy times almost as close as you can park to the start of the walking track.  We are situated 200 metres from Hahei  Beach and 200 metres from the shops and cafes.

There are three good places to eat in the season though sometimes much reduced in winter.

Hahei Beach is two and a half hours drive from Auckland Airport and just under three hours from Rotorua and Tauranga.


The rooms are spacious, and the king room opens on to a private balcony.  The twin room is available only to friends/family of guests occupying the king room.  The spacious bathroom is shared by occupants of both rooms. 

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided and there is a small fridge, T V and free Wi Fi.  We are happy to do small amounts of laundry at no cost to guests.  We have a cot and high chair and children are welcome.  We have no pets. 

Breakfast is served in our open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area and we enjoy spending time with our guests and helping them plan what to do in the wonderful area around Hahei.


$180 per night, reduced to $170 per night for more than one night.  Extra guests are $50 per person per night.
