A truly magical setting in the heart of Bethells Beach township just a stones throw from the surf club on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges.

Stroll from the surf club along the beach and take in the wonder of the wild west coast, the scenery is spectacular!

Your accomodation provides the gateway to any number of incredible bush and beach walks or simply stay home and soak up the ambience of your bach with its landscaped garden and native flora.

If you've got kids then they're going to love boogie boarding down the awesome sand dunes on the edge of Lake Wainamu, there is plenty of safe swimming there too. For the more adventurous take a walk around the lake then cool off in the waterfalls.

There's also rock fishing and the well known O' Neils surf beach within walking distance and a 10 minute drive will take you to the Waitakere golf club with its amazing bush backdrop.

Through the winter, take one of the many local walks and return home to hot chocolate and a warm fire. Or alternatively, head to Henderson (20 mins drive) where you will find wave pools, movies, shopping, Crystal Mountain (theme park for kids) and other activities.

During the summer months sample some renowned West Coast food and drink at the Bethells Cafe.

    This is a fantastic house, it is warm, private and comfortable, the whole family can relax. There is the beach just 3 mins down the road- or the sand dune is only a 10-15 min walk away. Or the kids can run around in the garden, The house has comfy beds and a fantastic wood burner and games for entertainment on the evening . Great for a winter break. Lyn made arrival and departure so easy. I can’t recommend this place highly enough and will be back again soon.

  • This property was the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday

    This property was the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. It was very cosy, and nice and handy to the beach and sand dunes. It was in a very peaceful setting with pleasant views of a bush covered hill and a peep of the sea.

  • The location is excellent

    The location is excellent. Walking distance to the beach. We spotted the cafe on the way! Even better. The house is quite big. Lots of space inside and out (with all the decks) and comfortable. WE didn't miss having TV. Probably made us more relaxed. Got to bed earlier. Everything worked well and a novelty for us Aucklanders to have a fire. Felt lovely and warm. A great place. We would go again. Thanks
