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

Can't say enough good things about this place - unique West Auckland character, stunning views, Trude and John were fantastic. We had a great wedding and our guests were blown away by the location and amenities. Pizza oven was a big hit - we made our own pizza. Highly recommended.

This is one of NZ's real coastal gems. We had such an amazing stay at this beautiful location, the property is so well maintained and the views are jaw-dropping. Many thanks to the welcoming and generous hosts, John and Trude. We can't wait to return!

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...
