Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bethells wild beach is situated 25 min from Auckland CBD by car, and unbelievably it's a natural pristine place, and moreover Bethells Cottages has the best views of this secluded amazing location. One of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen, right from the cottage!

The accommodation is situated on a hill, overlooking the nearby each. From your cottage you can easily enjoy the great view, sunrise or sunset. It's a good starting point to do some walks along the beach or inland, or go for a swim. It's self service and, since there's nothing close by, you need to plan accordingly. The accommodation has a rustic look and feel (maybe a bit outdated). Wifi reception is poor (for those interested) and only available in certain areas of the property.

An aesthetically beautiful and serene location perfect for completely chilling out. The Wairua apartment had everything any one could possibly need and hosts Trude and John were both delightful and attentive. Walks along stunning Bethells Beach and neighbouring beaches were easy and interesting. A relaxing New Year's stay that will be fondly remembered and highly recommended to like minded friends.

1. A beautiful location. Peaceful and scenic . 2. Our host, (John) was very kind and helpful and we very much enjoyed speaking with him. 3. Privacy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The following comments are only being made in the interest of encouraging improvement where possible. 1. Bathroom - Not enough hot water, (ran out during the daytime but seemed to be plenty in the morning and in the evening) - Would recommend the hot water system be updated / improved. 2. Not enough insect screens installed. - Would recommend that effective insect screens be installed where required, (i.e. entrance doorway and deck access doorway). 3. Although attractive and pretty, the property, (not only the cottage in which we stayed) as observed is starting to "show its age" - Would recommend

This accommodation is not for everyone. We had booked the Apartment and when we arrived, the accommodation was not what we were expecting judging by the reviews. If you want to get away from it all, to enjoy peaceful surrounds and have a quiet relaxing time walking, reading or just laying around, well away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place for you. If like us you wanted some modern amenities with nearby activities this is not the place for you. This accommodation is overpriced just to enjoy tranquillity and nature.

A Saturday night in the cosy Wairau Appartment was a wonderful way to relax by walking on the beach, reading in the hammock; playing table tennis and then talking in the hot tub. So pleased we took our food and wine as once there it would be sad to drive away for it! Trude and John are caring hosts. Well worth treating yourself.

I spent two nights in the Wairua apartment in October. My full day there was blessed with brilliant weather as I walked around the local lake and across the cliff tops. The cottages are in an idyllic, sheltered spot with a view of the coast that is breath-taking. It is one of the most relaxing places I have ever experienced. Trude and John run it very well. They are helpful and friendly while giving you the space to relax and revive. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic long weekend stay here. The facilities are fantastic, the location is stunning and somewhere we will be coming back to. Great to have the kids get back to nature and there is everything that you could possibly need. Sitting in the hot pool looking over the beach was pure bliss.

Kia ora Trude and John, You both absolutely made our wedding day special - more than it already was. You welcomed us into your beautiful home away from home. Loved your hospitality, and how thoughtful all the detail was. Wouldn't have been a special day without you both. Arohanui, William and Mark

I was lucky enough to win a night in the Wairua apartment through the oxfam trailwalker event. The Bethells beach cottages are in a great peaceful location with stunning views of the beach and surrounding mountains. Really feels like you are somewhere quite far away from civilization but it's only half an hour or so away from Swanson and Henderson. The apartment was nice and clean and quite cute and just outside was a great Scandinavian hot tub which we enjoyed. We met John the owner who showed us around and gave us all the info we needed, great hospitality!

Thank you so very much for your appreciation of our location, us and the apartment. We do our utmost to support guest stays. Being able to support charities and the like is even more special due to todays economic climate and community needs. The Scandinavian hot tub is superb especially on a fine night star gazing. Have awesome travels and we look forward to welcoming you again.
