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.

The house is just stunning opposite Butterfield beach. Two sitting areas at the front allows you to sit and gaze out at sea views. Large and ample space for a group of friends to spread out. The large dinning table was great to sit around and share our meals and stories. Great to have so many bedrooms so only a couple of us had to share. The beds/pillows were comfy and having 3 bathrooms a bonus when you have 8 women sharing. The house was warm and cosy with ample wood and coal provided. Having the use of the car was the icing on the cake! Stewart island was stunning, numerous choices of walks and beaches to visit. The bird life amazing and the weather was kind. I highly recommend staying at this home and hope to be back Thank you Margaret + friends

Loved our stay here, great location with the beach at your doorstep. Lots of cosy areas in the house so you can spread out. Comfortable beds too. Really had everything you could need and the use of the car was an extra bonus. Would definitely come back!!

The house is huge and there were only two of us so we closed various "wings" and enjoyed the wide range of chairs, couches, divans, views from different parts of the main house. The coal range kept us,warm when it was cold. The family owners have generously left a lot of basic food and "stuff" for guests to use. It has a lovely relaxed family feel. Having a car as part of the deal is brilliant. Thanks for a great stay.

We loved the location, looking out on the beach and hearing the birds in the mornings. It was so nice to have a car to go with the place, so that we could explore more of Stewart Island. We found the house to be charming, with many photos, posters and memories of families that had enjoyed over the years (which reminded us of our childhood growing up!). It was wonderful NOT having wifi (easy to access in town), and the wood burning stove kept the house cozy and delightful. We loved it here and would stay here again!
