We started a 2 week sightseeing tour of NZ by staying 3 nights in the apartment at Bethells Beach Cottages. It's very close to Auckland (literally under an hour's drive from the airport, right through the middle of the city to get there), yet feels far from the crowds. The last 20 minutes of the drive takes you down a... More

What a fantastic stay! John and Trude are wonderful hosts and they have a probably the best spot at Bethells! A range of accommodation available....the cottages are so unique and have a very homely atmosphere. The gardens are beautiful with a stunning view of Bethells beach. We enjoyed sitting in the gardens, lounging in the hammock and watching the sun... More

This place turned out to be exactly what we were after as a last minute decision for a night away. First impressions are important, and the location definitely helps, but people are equally important and Trude gave us a warm welcome and showed us the setup. We stayed in the apartment which is under the house. I saw some comments... More

Great location but didn't like the apartment as it was under the owners house so it wasn't very private. There is no view from inside the apartment, to see the view you have to be standing on the outdoor patio and it was a cold weekend. The wifi didn't work and they shouldn't advertise the service if they can't provide... More

This place is stunning and I would highly recommend it as a quiet get away with friends or family. Magnificent hosts and lots of love and care have gone into making this special hideaway. We held a small meeting here and the facility would be great for a group of friends to use for a celebration. Lots of open fires,... More

Loved the place and all the little features that showed the love and care that have gone into it. Rustic and charming with easy access to an amazing beach. Great outdoor cooking facilities. Really a place to chill, walk and talk

An amazing location overlooking undeveloped Bethells Beach on the west coast. The photos don't give it justice. This is a very unique property handed down over generations with lots of artistic input. It wouldn't be considered 5 star because of luxurious touches but because of its location and uniqueness. It is clean and comfortable and has a well equipped kitchenette... More

We spent a night in Te Koinga cottage at Bethells to celebrate a special day. What a truly beautiful experience. The location is so remote and beautiful,I felt compelled to just sit and take it all in for most of the time. John filled his kiwi hot tub and positioned it on the deck so we could be warm while...
