Reviewed April 20, 2013

Bethells Beach cottages and it's namesake are simply beautiful. It was a much needed stay from the hurly burly of city life amongst amazing scenery. I could live in that hot tub for the rest of my life and be a happy man... Thanks John & Trudy!

Room Tip: We booked the apartment but the small cottage looks like the place to stay next trip!

Great place to relax and do nothing! It's one of the few places my husband and I can go to really check out from the hussle of everyday life. We love the fact that we can spend all day just sitting on the back deck area watching the ocean! We also love that John and Trude are so relaxed and accommodating. And the Turehu cottage has absolutely everything we need.

We got married at Bethells Cottages on 9 February 2013. The venue was stunning, the flower arranging and seating was beautiful - absolutely perfect. There was fresh flowers throughout the cottages for all our guests who were staying. The compliments I received from our guests about the venue, Trude & John, their wait staff and their chef were great. It was well above all my expectations. I couldn't have asked for more!! Thank you all so much :-)

We got married out at Bethells Beach cottages on the 23rd February 2013.
The venue was amazing and there was not a worry for us in the world out there for me and my husband or my wonderful parents which was important for us.
John and Trude took care of everything for us, and along with their fantastic staff we had the most romantic, stress free wedding.
The remote venue, cell phone free :-) rustic cottages, amazing views, we could not have asked for anything more.

Thank you so much.

An impulse booking found a beautiful rustic and charming retreat overlooking the unspolit and rugged Bethells Beach. The drive up to the property held promise of the view from elevation and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the Te Koinga Cottage which with over 24 different types of timber used. The windows had stained glass panels and the effect was relaxing and comfortable. We organised a meal and breakfast before setting out to Bethells Beach as our hosts had informed us there was no shop or outlets close by.

We arrived and John gave us the tour and we found his manner to be relaxed and gentile, which for us matched the surroundings well. We enjoyed our meal on the deck overlooking the beach as the sun sank into the sea. Very romantic.

A beach walk after a long breakfast refreshed our souls then we followed the shallow river to the freshwater lake behind a sand dune for a dip. We will be returning soon to recharge our batteries soon. Many thanks

Room Tip: Two separate appartments have different views both stunning, our appartment was the larger of the tw...

We had a great time in this amazing remote beach location and found Trude and John great to deal with. The cottage had everything we needed and a rustic charm. Travelling with a 10 month old infant we found it a bit of a challenge as the cottage was not infant/toddler proof with the lack of kitchen cupboard doors, power outlets and blind cords being very attractive for curious little people.

We had an absolutely fantastic wedding at Bethells......with family and friends we enjoyed the lovely surroundings for a few days prior in the cottages and then had a better wedding than we could ever even have imagined.
Trude and John were marvellous in helping us to organise things and Trude even married us.
We will definitely be regular visitors to this truly amazing spot.
