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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Absolutely one of our best nights away. The setup in the Kohinui Cottage was great. Lovely presentation and decor. Very private and very comfortable beds. Location is beautiful. We wanted to visit the local Parua Bay tavern and weren't disappointed. Andrea, our host couldn't have been more welcoming. Great place to chill. Many thanks. Ben and Jan.

Outstandingly beautiful location and the most wonderful host. Everything you could possibly need and more. The little touches like fresh flowers, pool towels and a fully equipped kitchen make this place so easy to feel at home with. To top it all Andrea is so friendly and helpful. I’d give it 6 stars if I could!

We had the loveliest 3 nights at Kauri Villas. Mike & Andrea made us so welcome. The setting is beautiful.. we had the Magnolia suite which just made our stay so special. The rooms were beautifully presented . We had dinner at the Tavern joining in the weekly quiz night. Thanks for asking us Mike. We had never explored the Whangarei Heads and we spent a magic day seeing a part of NZ that we didn't know. We can highly recommend the villas. The breakfast were a delight. Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas. Wendy &Denis O'Callaghan Taupo.

Absolutely loved our 2 night stay here. The setting is stunning and so restful. Our cottage had far more than we expected, perfect if you wished to stay for a longer period. Every little last detail included, i.e. books and magazines for all ages. Mike and Andrea super friendly and nothing too much trouble. HIGHLY RECOMMEND 💕

After 4 weeks in NZ, we had experienced so many kinds of accomodation but Kauri Villas exceeded everything that came before it. The location is exquisite and the rooms are amazing and every need has been catered for. Mike, our host was very helpful and even had breakfast ready for us at 6.30am. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer. P.S the nature walk is a must and make sure you try the Indian in the village.

What a magical place to stay. Incredible views, great accommodation, wonderful hosts... we couldn't have asked for more. Andrea and Mike were great, and made us feel at home immediately. The kids loved the games barn and we can't wait to book up and stay again.

This would be one of the best bed and breakfast places I have stayed at. We were greeted on arrival by Mike and Andrea, escorted around and taken to our rooms. Our accommodation was clean and tidy and my bed was superbly comfortable. Our breakfast, cooked by Mike was excellent, the range was extensive, beautifully presented and delicious. Mike and Andrea were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had all we needed. We would highly recommend this place and were sorry we only had one night here, we would have loved to have stayed longer.
