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...

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...

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.

We had an absolute fantastic stay, even though the weather was not great it did not matter, the hot tub was great, the apartment was well setup and very comfortable, really back in the day, and nice and quite.

What a great place to get away to for a weekend of relaxation. This is a magical spot which makes you feel like you have excaped the city life. No cellphone reception, no laptops just you and nature. Pack some groceries and your walking shoes and have a great weekend away from it all.

The view is to die for night & day. On arrival at Bethells Beach Cottages we were transfixed by the stunning location and immediately felt at home in the beautiful large cottage. It had two cosy bedrooms, a bathroom (with deep bath & plenty of fluffy towels), large lounge dining (massive table seating 12 & fireplace) and a very well...

We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Bethells Beach Cottages, and appreciated the excellent hospitality from Trude and John. The cottage we were in had everything we needed and was nice and clean. The mid winter weather didn't detract from our stay, but we do plan to come back for a summer break.

Thank you for staying in your lovely cottage. We couldn’t wish more for our 2 nights honeymoon in the Waitakere Ranges. The view from out the windows of your Turehu cottage is stunning. Even with the rainy parts :). If you’re going to stay at the Bethells Beach Cottages, you must do the sundown in the hottub and ending with...
