A very relaxing quirky cottage with a chilled laid back atmosphere... the perfect foil to the hustle and bustle of Auckland. Had a great time for the weekend we were staying at Bethells Beach cottage.

A special occasion was needed for our 25 wedding anniversary and my birthday so we first looked overseas but paradise was right on our door step, Turehu cottage was the cutest accommodation, together with the most amazing sun sets and views over looking the beach. It was a perfect for a romantic weekend away. Looking to return in the winter...

I have stayed at Bethells Beach cottages many times and keep coming back, but this is my first review of this wonderful place. This location must be one of the most beautiful in the world and the peace and tranquility of staying in the charming and atmospheric cottages is perfect for total time out. Yes, wifi can be erratic, but...

Very hard to find due to inadequate signage to location. Ants all over the kitchen bench, some dirty plates in pantry, cobwebs in bathroom, shower not fully enclosed so you have to be careful of slippery wet floors. No comfortable seating provided either inside or out. There is an old style TV with old videos and no instructions for their...

incredible place, with stunning views and surrounding countryside. Wonderfully looked after. It really is a unique place and would return for a longer stay, in a heartbeat. Be careful of the sea though...she's not quiet there!

Bethells Beach Cottages is where we chose as our wedding venue. Trude Bethell is a celebrant and did the most amazing ceremony for us in one of the most beautiful locations you can find. The cottage we stayed in was eccentric and wonderful just like Trude herself who made us feel welcomed and loved from the start. After the ceremony...

We had the pleasure of getting married in this wonderful venue. The view was outstanding! We stayed in the larger cottage, it was homely, arty and fully equipped with everything you could possilbly need. On our deck, there was a wonderful view of Bethells Beach. John and Trude hosted out wedding, they were organized, kind and very professional. The food...

A one night stay which was appreciated in peak holidsy season. A quirky place with interesting decor but had everything you could want. A bit hard to find with little signage on the road in but a pleasant and comfy spot to relax. A picnic watching the sunset from a bench located strategically a short walk from the cottage was...

One of the most fabulous beaches in NZ and accommodation to match. Spectacular views, welcoming hosts and accommodation that parallels the unique coastal setting. Off the beaten path and well worth the visit. John and Trude have a truly special place and are great hosts.

We stayed in the Wairua apartment. Like the cottages, the apartment was fully self-contained with stove, oven, microwave, and full-size fridge. It was cute, homey, and had all that we needed, such as a dining table with chairs, but the apartment also opened onto its own private patio with a brick wood fired barbecue and outdoor dining area. In addition,...
