We returned to this magical spot where we got married 20 years ago and it was just as special as we remember! We enjoyed our time relaxing in the comfortable hammock overlooking one of the best views in the country and soaking in our private kiwi hot tub on our patio while we watched the sun set! The Terehu cottage has a unique character and rustic charm with it's beautiful conservatory & bathroom. The bed is extremely comfortable and we loved the quality of the linen & towels. We also enjoyed our game of table tennis in the pavilion. Thank you Trude and John!
We really enjoyed our stay here over the long weekend, super friendly and welcoming hosts with little touches that made the difference. The views didn't let us down and we were super lucky with excellent sunny weather and little wind. We stayed in the apartment and while not spacious or luxurious gave us everything we needed. The patio right outside the door was great, as was the wood fired BBQ. The jot tub is also very close and lovely. The TV is in the bedroom rather than the living room but we didn't use it. Wifi was good and I was able to live stream some sport no worries. I made use of the massage service and the therapist was truly excellent, the remedial treatment I got was up there with anything I have ever experienced. This place may not be for the luxury traveler who wants marble bathrooms and soft plush furnishings but it was just what we were after, we'll be back for sure.…
The best views in Bethell's Beach. Remote enough to be a genuine escape. Activity wise - Te Tenga walkway and a world class beach break at your doorstep, and close proximity to Central Auckland make this an easy rewarding, and relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend.
You’ve got to come here! It’s utterly relaxed, cosy and beautiful in all senses. Our stress melted away. We really enjoyed our weekend getaway here: from the views to the hot tub to the fireplace to the comfort and the warm welcome. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a romantic, cool, relaxed, bohemian escape!
Thank you so much Trude and John for being such gracious hosts and for your time and caring when we arrived. The cake and glass of bubbles was a wonderful surprise and much appreciated, giving a personal touch. We stayed in the beautiful Turehu cottage with the most magnificent views. Although this rustic cottage is the older of the three it is well equipped and clean and tidy with a great choice of magazines and books. All and all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back many more times. This is now a favourite holiday destination for us. We loved exploring the beach and lake.
