Te Koinga Cottage

Te Koinga Cottage ("point between land and sea") is the largest of our three accommodation choices and can comfortably host two couples or a family.

Positioned on the edge of the world, its location affords guests a mesmerizing view of the southern end of the beach and it’s beautiful surrounds.

With an expansive deck that offers complete privacy, and an outdoor table with seating for twelve, you can relax underneath the sun umbrella and enjoy the natural beauty of Bethells Beach with your family and friends.

The fully appointed kitchen was designed with entertaining in mind and has views far across the Tasman Sea. It’s a pleasure to light the wood fire, put on some music and prepare a meal as the sun sets through the windows in front of you

Dining takes on an expansive feel when seated at the hand crafted Eucalyptus and Matai table built for twelve. There’s plenty of room to entertain and make a night of it or simply enjoy a romantic evening for two.

The beautiful bathroom is perfect for those who like to draw a hot bath and soak in silence before retiring to a comfortable bed and falling asleep to the sounds of nature.

The Te Koinga cottage was designed and built by John and interior designed by Trude and has many creative touches that imbue it with a sense of bohemian splendour and flare.

It is the perfect home away from home where you can relax and experience the rugged beauty of the west coast with your loved ones and friends.

Please note you will need to bring your own food and drink. Please print the directions so you can easily find your way.
