We had a wonderful time at Trude’s place in Bethell’s beach. It really is a fantastic location right up on the hillside above the beach. We loved sitting in the hammock watching the sunset. Would love to come back.

We had a great night away out Trude and John's place. The hot-tub was well worth it and would love to go back again some time.

A beautiful place near Bethells Beach. Had a wonderful time. Please note that addresses in the area are not sequential and (Hidden by Airbnb) maps is not perfectly accurate. At the end of the road, follow signs to Bethells Beach Cottages, then go all the way up the hill.
