My husband and I loved staying here!!! The host, Lynn, was very friendly Be helpful! The place felt like we were at home and was very comfortable! We loved the location because it was so close to the beach! We had a great time having dinner & listening to music at Bethel's Cafe and then watched the sunset. Speaking of which, our second night we decided to stay in but we were still able to watch the sunset!!!! This picture was taken from the living room! 😊 We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Lynn and Allan!

Beautifully Crafted Sanctuary
Normally I would never have considered a B&B since my partner and I are both very private people and prefer to keep to ourselves, which is generally not how one tends to envision the B&B experience. However, in researching the property, I came across a review that stated the hosts were perfectly happy to either socialize with their guests, or leave them to their own devices (the latter of which appealed greatly, given our preferences). Another review detailed the track through native bush that wound down the nearby valley, at the bottom of which glow worms could be viewed at night, whilst another mentioned sitting under the stars in the spa pool. The more I read, the more I fell in love with the place, and so I ultimately booked a three night stay at Bush Sand and Sea. The appeal of a beautifully crafted sanctuary nestled in the bush furnished with modern conveniences and providing such picturesque views was naturally impossible to resist, and exceeded every expectation. The accommodation itself was exactly as shown, and is absolutely perfect. The unique layout of the lounge/kitchen area features walls of windows facing in every direction to maximize your views of the surrounding countryside and native bush, with access to the front- and back-facing patios. The bedroom also provides access to the latter via its own wall of windows at the foot of the bed, with views of the ocean and Te Henga (Bethells Beach) visible further down the valley. Not enough space to write more!
Pros: Absolutely everything, it was exactly what I'd hoped for when making the reservation. The tranquility, peace, and seclusion were outstanding.
Cons: It's not something that needs to be improved, just an FYI to other guests: while there is mobile coverage for Vodafone, it doesn't extend to 2Degrees.
Location: We spent the majority of our stay in & around the property enjoying the tranquillity & seclusion of the area since we were after rest and relaxation.
