This is our second visit to Bethell's Beach Cottages. We do wine tours and had a few extra days in New Zealand after the tours were over. We wanted to have a little time to relax, enjoy the beauty of this area, and go to Kemeu River winery just down the road. Walk the black sands beach and be able... More

Hortons Heroes Tramping Group had excellent stay for group of 7. Used magical bbq and John and Trudi's attentive care to our requirements. Last stayed there in 1944 during the 2nd WW in a tent and arrived on horse sledge! Bring it back please!

Airline screw-up sent us scrambling for a last minute place to stay or we would never have found this place. It's about an hour from the airport and a world away from civilization. Our GPS got us close, but it was a little hard to find and had no cell service, but what a great place to relax and find... More

We spent two nights here with our 10 week old some for our mini honeymoon. It was the most relaxing and pleasant stay, John is a fantastic host and made sure we had all we needed at all times. The break from cell and internet in the days after our wedding was just what we needed! We will be back... More

If you want a quiet and peaceful place, this is the place to go. The apartment, and the service are perfect. Trude and John will bend over backwards for you, are a joy to speak with, and have a wealth of information. Next visit I will stay there.

Relaxing, very quiet, and friendly location. Amazing grounds (flowers, plants, grass, birds, etc.); wonderful patio views; great wood fired grill (I think they have a gas grill also). Nice beach nearby and the friendly owners who will give you as much or as little as advice on the area you want. If you are looking for a busy area with... More

John and Trude are the most welcoming and relaxed hosts. The location is perfect for a coastal retreat with lots of places to explore around Bethel's and O'Neils or even a walk around the lake close by. Loads to keep you occupied. The apartments and cottages are fabulous and well appointed. Thanks for a great stay!

John and Trude were such wonderful hosts. They were extremely warm and welcoming. As they showed us around we instantly fell in love with the residence. The cottage was perfect! Fire place was prepped and ready to go, a great selection of wines in the wine rack and beautiful wild flowers and foliage throughout the cottage gave the cottage a... More

Great location, great views, superbly equipped kitchen. Turehu Cottage has amazing views over the sandy bay at Te Henga and it was so peaceful other than the rain pounding and the waves crashing on the beach! This place is the best we have stayed at in ENZED. Hosts Trude and John helpful and welcoming.
