  • Te Henga is an area that we like to come to get-away...

    Te Henga is an area that we like to come to get-away from it all and unwind and relax. We have stayed elsewhere and all are lovely but we especially liked bush, sand and sea for the quietness and friendly hosts. We will come back again ??

    The Bach was immaculate and situated in a stunning location with views over Bethells beach. We really enjoyed our stay relaxing here and listening to all the birds. We had everything you could need and Lyn provided a beautiful homemade breakfast. It was a great start to the new year and would happily return! Thanks Lyn and Alan.
