We spent a few days at Turehu Cottage in April. We loved it. It is a truly stunning spot, with breathtaking views out over the beach. It's very easy to get to from Auckland (only a 45 minute drive) and you feel very remote and away from it all. (This is increased by the lack of cell-phone reception and no...

With limited internet/wifi coverage we had a fantastic time. Sitting looking at the view, drinking wine looking at the view, numerous walks along the beach, to the lake and waterfalls, also had a couple of games of outside chess, and sampled some of Johns home brew at the same time. We were never bored. A very relaxing and tranquil space....

We stayed in Te Koinga and were disappointed with the cottage. It is very cluttered and that made the small cottage seem even smaller than it really was. The pull-out sofa was full of crumbs and was not long enough or substantial enough for our teenage son to sleep comfortably. There is no cell service there and the internet only...

This place was fantastic. I stayed in the Te Koinga cottage for two nights before I started my escorted couch tour through both islands. I would love to come back to stay at Bethells Beach cottages again should I ever venture back to New Zealand. This place is not easy to get to, so if you are traveling from outside...

We LOVED our stay at the Bethells Beach Cottages! It was the most beautiful place, with a stunning view of the ocean from the dining room, kitchen, and back porch. The stunning beach is a ten minute walk away. The cottage was a sweet romantic place for two, though it can fit many many more people. It had absolutely everything...

We stayed at Bethells Beach Cottages in the Wairua Apartment for only one night. It was amazing! The views were exceptional...photos don't do it justice. John, one of the hosts, was a wealth of information and directed us to a couple of gorgeous hikes, one along the beach & another just a short drive along the river to Lake Wainamu....

We stayed at Bethells Beach Cottages for two nights to unwind and enjoy the spectacular views over the beach. The cottages are lovely and provide a nice place to enjoy some R&R time. The hosts of Bethells Beach Cottages were lovely and made sure we enjoyed our stay here. Will definitely go back here when back on the North Island

Lots of character and comfort! Went for our honeymoon and loved exploring the area from this awesome base. It is a long way from anywhere but that is exactly what we wanted - we had a very relaxing time and loved it, especially John's delicious homebrewed beer

When Me and my wife chose to go to New Zealand for our Honeymoon we knew it was going to be a whirlwind. At the end of previous trips aboard we'd always wind up saying "We need a vacation from the vacation" and since we were trying to see as much of the country as our 12 day schedule would...

We had our wedding at the beautiful Bethells Beach Cottages and we had the most amazing day ever. All our guests has complimented on our choice of venue.
