Stay in one of our gorgeous COTTAGES

Escape to Willow or Kauri Cottage, our charming self-contained retreats designed for two. Nestled beneath the beautiful Lawnmower’s Son Art Gallery, these secluded cottages are tucked away within the lush gardens of the Hahei homestead. Located just a 5-minute stroll from the beach and a stone's throw from all the delights Hahei has to offer – including cafes, restaurants, and shops – our unique cottages provide a picturesque setting for a serene weekend retreat.
