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.

What a delight it was to visit Whitianga and gaze over the sparkling waters of the Bay from the very top of the highest hill. Everything was perfect, from the spacious and authentic two bedroom apartment complete with all the extra little luxuries, to our gracious and accommodating hosts who even shared a home cooked meal with us one evening! We would certainly return to The Villa just to soak up the atmosphere or relax again in the spa with its lush green surroundings, overlooking the moonlit water. Superb.

The hosts, Giorgio & Margherita, have a lovely villa with outstanding views. Very relaxing. The Coromandel region is spectacular. We enjoyed the fruit & cheese as well as a nicely stocked fridge. Our hosts were very gracious, helping us with reservations and information about the region. As well supplying us with beach chairs and a shovel for Hot Beach.

Where to start ... the perfect welcome from Giorgio; the beautiful and fully equipped apartment with its private terrace; to the stunning view across Mercury Bay. Giorgio introduced us to the area, made recommendations for the best beaches to visit and even booked Christmas dinner for us. Actually, we could just as easily just have sat looking at that view the whole time.

Our visit to Villa Toscana was amazing. Giorgio our host made us feel like family. It was also very nice to taste some of Giorgio's wonderful Italian wines. Our host also stocked the fridge with a lot of tasty treats. We surely enjoyed the wonderful two bedroom apartment and the beautiful bay views. The hot tub under the stars was great. We would definitely recommend staying at Villa Toscana.

We stayed here during the scallop festival. We have not stayed often at private lodging but we so pleasantly surprised by the privacy and and space in this gorgeous setting. The hosts are fantastic and enthusiastic, helpful to get out bags to the room and then we were left alone in peace to enjoy our weekend on the terrace and the fantastic private spa pool. The Villa has clearly been designed and decorated with passion. All with the most amazing views on the Coromandel. Highly recommended. We were supplied with a very enjoyable bottle of wine and the fridge was stocked with delicacies for the weekend also.

The weather lifted and we had a wonderful time here. Fabulous location and even better hosts in dramatic landscape overlooking Mercury Bay. Spacious accommodation, beautiful kitchen and most interesting Italian wines. Look for Margherita's art!

Well, again researching TripAdvisor saw us depart to the perfect location for a 3 x day break in one of New-Zealand premier beach locations. Our hosts Margherita and Giorgio, the quintessential warm, generous Italian couple who from day 1 made us feel part of their family who we also privileged to meet. The apartment which is on ground floor was like stepping into a Tuscany villa, warm, well furnished and appointed with every conceiveable accoutrement available including a selection of Giorgio's fine wine and perfume for the discerning woman (in this case my partner). The view from the patio is stunning and the surrounding native bush provides for privacy and tranquility. We were well advised to dine at Motu in Whitianga, one on Northlands top restaurants. (see review). The only disappointment was not being able to enjoy our hosts fine Italian cooking, although Giorgio did provide a generous sampler to tempt us should we return again (which we will). A little piece of Italy in Whitianga? you bet. Ciao bella.. Gail & Terry

Lodges in New Zealand come in many forms. The property is perched atop a hill, high above the town of Whitianga with wonderful views across the bay which produces a warm glow from the sunrise in the morning . The Villa Toscana is a custom built villa incorporating a self contained 100 sq metre private apartment with two bedrooms, a well appointed bathroom and a charming area which includes a Kitchen segment a pretty central dining room table and an area that focuses on a television and hi fi system. Most importantly you have privacy on all sides of the two fronted building which provides access to a Hot Top with stunning views down to the coast. For International travellers the property will survive your needs for as long as a week so you can rest up on the final leg before Auckland or begin your holiday here. In the meantime you can visit the almost deserted beaches of Otama, Matarangi, walk on various tracks and tick box the ubiqutious Cathedral Cove. I cooked supper on two evenings and Margarita always found an extra spice or piece of equipment needed with out wasteful journeys to Whitianga for long terms answers to short term needs. Toscana may give you the clue but the floors are all terracotta tiles white washed walls and quality dark furniture but this is not little Italy, it is an international destination infused with Gorgio's and Margarita, your hosts, natural bent for friendship and hospitality . It rains breakfast provisions when you first arrive and the fruit bowl is top upped regularly with a change of sheets and towels mid stay. Gorgio will give your partner a round at the local golf course whilst you read walk and dream and end up for a late lunch at Luke's Kitchen for amazing Pizza and a glass of Savvy. Oh and if you want dinner out in the evening try Motu. It sounds patronising but I really do not expect such exquisite and inventive cooking in a small town on the Coromandel. So if you want to get off the dash round N Z tour here is a place to stop and breath a little.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Villa Toscana. Giorgio and Margherita were delightful hosts. We visited a gorgeous beach, fantastic pizza pad and quaint tea-house, all recommended by Giorgio and perfect for our escape from Auckland. We had a memorable weekend and enjoyed the spectacular view.
