Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

LesGosselins wrote a review Nov 2023
Quebec City, Canada437 contributions134 helpful votes
We first booked green and gold room. The description told that the toilet was a short walk from the room. Well, we must say we were surprised that short wasn't as short as we expected. We had already discussed the possibility of having the cottage if it was available even if it was for one night. The owner accepted to make the change. An extra charge of cleaning applied, since it was one night and that charge was ok to us. The cottage was better, nicely divided and well maintained. However, it is very old. So many things were bothering. Faucets were separated. Only hot water in one, only cold in the other, like the older houses. There was a wood-burning stove in the kitchen/living room. For the rooms, there was only mobile heaters. That should have been good to do the job. Too bad, our room had only one electric plug behind the bed. It was impossible for us to have the heater in the room. Our friend was luckier in his room. I would recommend clearer ads and many additional pictures so we understand how far is a short walk since the toilet is outside the building. Also, having extension cords in the cottage would be nice. Owners were kind and helpful. We thank them for arranging something in the last minute.

Thank you for taking the time to review our place. I am sorry that it does not meet your high standards. We keep the price affordable as we know that our place is not modern and palatial. It is hard to meet everybody's needs and expectations and I am humbly sorry that we did not meet yours . The house is fully booked over the main season as people love the relaxed nature of the place and yes, the taps are separate for now. upgrading the bathroom and toilet is our next project for later this season hopefully. We would like to wish you all the best for the rest of your holiday and hope you find more suitable accommodation for your needs. All the best

Stayed 2 nights in the cottage and absolutely loved it. Spent 2 days down in the Catlins doing some photography and there was nothing better than spending the day out photographing things and then coming back to the cottage, putting the fire on and just relaxing in front of the telly. The cottage is clean and tidy with a great outlook. Very good value for money and would defiantly return.

A great stay! Thankful to be accommodated when our first booking at another location fell through at the last minute. Justine was so warm and accommodating. The kitchen had everything we needed, it was quiet, there was a heater in the room, everything was so clean, the shower was wonderful and it was beautiful. Would happily stay again!

This was an excellent place to stay the night as part of our trip around the Catlins. Communication was easy and booking a room at short notice was a breeze. The reception was friendly and helpful on arrival. The rooms were clean and comfortable as were the kitchen and bathroom facilities. It is just a very short drive down the road to Slope Point, the most southerly point of the South Island. Curio Bay is only a few minutes drive. Overall, a very enjoyable and comfortable stay.

Our family had a lovely stay in the holiday house. It was so peaceful and quiet and had everything we needed. It's a treat to look out of the window and see sheep grazing in the paddock, or go feed the pet sheep back at the main house. Justine and her daughters were very friendly and kind hosts. Great location for exploring the Catlins, and we saw penguins at Curio Bay. Definitely recommend!

Slope point accommodation is a lovely little place. Justine and Bob the dog are very friendly and welcoming. I booked on the day and she text me to say it was all confirmed and to take my time on the way over so I could see the waterfalls on the route! Good location - short drive & walk to the Southernest point in NZ, 15min drive from Curio bay so a chance to spot rare penguins in the evening (sadly they didn't show up for me though!). Not many amenities nearby though so stock up before you arrive! Very clean and a nice homely feel in the backpacker bunkhouse.

A hidden gem! We loved our stay here and cannot wait to come back! The place was clean and cozy and had everything we could possibly want at a very affordable price! We were greeted with warmth and friendliness. Our only regret is that we had so many places we wanted to see that we didnt spend nearly enough time to enjoy the farm setting! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone! Well done to our hosts!
