Bethells Beach Cottages - About Us

Your hosts Trude Bethell and John Paice live by the motto, to give is to love and to love is to live. - written by Trude Bethell

This is reflected in the “little touches” that make a stay at the cottages a very special experience.

Trude is an excellent cook. With a little forward notice she will put great love into the preparation of a delicious meal of your choice. We also have our own wood fire pizza oven.

Both Trude and John appreciate that most guests prefer absolute privacy but wish you to know they are on hand to share their extensive knowledge of the local area.

Trude and John look forward to sharing the experience of Bethells Beach Cottages with you.


Original Bethells settler John Neale Bethell was removed from school at the age of nine and sent with his brother to clear family land in the Waitakere forest.
