we also drove along and came to this motorcamp by accident. Its a lovely wee spot and management was awesome. We had come down to Matakana for the winery tour. Over night stay was required. With everything booked out we took our chances at the motorcamp as we had a stationwagon car with all we needed. We were shown a... More

We had a long day of hiking and driving and were about to settle for a regular motel when we got to the end of the road in Algies Bay and followed the signs down to this secluded gem. The 4th generation owners of this small network of fully self contained cottages could not be more welcoming. The units are... More

We stayed here early Dec 2014. We were very impressed with the accommodation. Lovely comfortable beds and a great view out the sliding door. We stayed in a cottage and spent a quiet night as we had travelled far that day. Top marks to the owners of this motel we loved it and would recommend it to all - families... More

We enjoyed four nights stay here in a spacious and modern unit. At this time of year the third night was free which was a bonus for us. Big comfortable bed and a Freeview/Sky TV in lounge. Not far to travel to nearby Snells Beach, Warkworth and Matakana, all within around 30 mins. drive. The bush walk from the property... More

Stayed 3 nights in a large cottage big enough to sleep 6 comfortably. This is a great place to chill! Very laid back, and super close to the water. They also have plenty for guests to do- small row boats, trampolines, sea kayaks and a great barbeque area. Works well as a base for trips to pottery factory, Goat Island... More

If you're looking for a holiday oasis close to Auckland, look no further than Bethshan. We arrived to a lovely little note telling us to get settled in our unit with the key waiting for us. We then headed out onto the bay on kayaks (they have several, plus a couple of sailboats and a dinghy, all free to use)... More

Have now stayed at Bethshan twice, August 2011 (4 nights) and May 2012 (3 nights). What a hidden gem! Love their winter special, where every 3rd night is free, which makes it the best deal in the area! Our teenaged boys spent hours on the trampolines & in the kayaks, while the adults appreciated the proximity to the local wineries... More
