The Top House sits on the highest point of our property, nestled amongst beautiful mature pohutukawas and tropical gardens.

It boasts all day sun. The front deck looks towards the gorgeous island views of Hahei and provides guests with the first sun of the day, perfect for having your breakfast or morning coffee. Whereas the back deck looks over bush and rural views and enjoys the afternoon sun - perfect for late afternoon drinks.

Hahei Beach is sooo beautiful - it is often called the Pink Beach because of the number of ground shells that gives it that beautiful pink tinge - it has the nicest sand of all the Coromandel beaches! There are many sprawling pohutukawas that line the beach front that provide shelter from the sun. Wonderful beach for swimming.

The Cathedral Cove walk is right on our door step - a 10 minute walk or a very short car ride. I do this walk 2 or 3 times a week and never get sick of it. The track has been 'done up', so can now accommodate push chairs most of the way! It won't be long before an extension to the existing track is added - this is meant to be spectacular too! Don't forget to check out Stingray Bay on the way, and Gem Stone Bay is the spot to go snorkeling in our amazing vibrant marine reserve.

Hot Water Beach is a 5-10 minute drive away, and is a stunning beach as well. Of course you can dig your hot pool here at low tide, but it is the most beautiful beach for walking along - much more open and rugged than Hahei. This is the beach to go to if you enjoy surfing.

The beaches don't just stop here - they keep going all the way to the ferry - a beach suitable for any age or activity - all within 15 minutes drive.

Hahei has a small village shopping area which caters to most of holiday makers needs. A well stocked general store, two restaurants, take aways, icecream parlour, cafe, gift shop and delicatessen. We also have an amazing dive school, kayak tours and boat rides all available in our village.

    This was the second time a friend and I stayed at The Top House. We plan to make it a regular habit! The layout of the house works really well for two people who want their own space (two bedrooms and two bathrooms) and then enjoy meeting in the living space when the urge for sociability strikes. Lovely view, warm (this was a winter visit) and very comfortable. We'll be back!

  • What everyone else has said is spot on

    What everyone else has said is spot on. The location is amazing. Private, high up with a great view and set in a beautiful garden. The house itself has been built with impeccable attention to detail. It’s the kind of place that makes you feel great just to be there. We spent a good deal of time inside just reading and chilling out. When we did go outside we found Hahei delightful. The beach is clean sand and the water is crystal clear. Cathedral Cove is dramatic and Hot Water Beach has hot water

  • A wonderful property, even better than described

    A wonderful property, even better than described .The location is perfect and the house is positioned to capture the stunning views, while taking in the low winter sun through the north facing windows. The house is very light and bathed in sun all day, even in the middle of winter. The house is modern with a small but functional kitchen as well as laundry facilities and two bathrooms. Everything you could possibly need is provided and decor great. The heated bathroom floors were also a treat.

    A colleague and I wanted to stay somewhere peaceful, inspiring, comfortable, warm, aesthetically pleasing with good food nearby, to get some work done. Hahei beach, village and the Top House especially were so perfect for our needs that we booked another 'writing retreat' before we'd even left!
