This is an lovely place to enjoy your time in Auckland and the surrounding awesome beach of Bethells Beach and nearby Piha Beach.The views are extraordinary, accommodations are lovely and comfortable and you can enjoy privacy and plenty of room. John and Trude were lovely hosts and we greatly enjoyed our time at Bethells Beach cottages. Close to Swanson rail station for a convenient trip to Auckland as well.

This is an incredible place to relax and unwind. A beautiful location with stunning views overlooking the beach. The little cottage was warm and cozy with the sun streaming in throughout the day. Cooking on the outdoor BBQ as the sun sets over the ocean below was magic and soaking in the hot tub under the stars before bed made for extra deep sleeping. A great stay.

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.
