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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We loved our stay here. We were there for 3 nights and it was perfect. Lovely, comfy rooms and everything we needed in the kitchen. The lounge was a great spot for watching NZs native birds, and we even had several Kaka come visit us on the deck. Everything was walking distance and we managed to get around easily. Would 100% recommend.

Had an excellent stay here. Property is a short walk down to the heart of the village. The weather wasn’t the best but we were very warm and cosy. Plenty to read and games to play .

Ideal location, had everything we needed. Got to see lots of wildlife, kaka on the balcony, kiwis on the road and many other birds. Lovely friendly locals. Only thing you'd need to do is get rid of the rats in the ceiling... didn't worry us at all but someone else may complain. Overall a wonderful experience

Thanks for a great stay. The house is in the perfect spot, close to everything. Lovely to watch the birds in the trees from the windows. Everything you could possibly need. Katrina was brilliant from start to finish. I'm sure we'll be back.

We found the stay fantastic - second time at this property. Great communication with the owner, who kept us informed and was supportive. The property is well suited to a family (could accommodate two families easily) and was tidy, clean and well situation. A fabulous get away and recharge with the whanau.

Really enjoyed out stay on Stewart Island here, thank you. Great to look over the bay, see and hear the birds around and see a Kaka up close on the deck.
