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 and views were better than we could’ve imagined. The house has most everything you could need and is very nice and clean. We absolutely loved the house. Nothing can beat the views you wake up to in the morning or see while relaxing in the evening. The rolling hills are so beautiful and at night you get the ultimate stargazing when laying out on the deck. We stayed here because of its proximity to Hobbiton and it didn’t disappoint because it was less than a 20 minute drive there, and it’s a very beautiful drive. We also did the glow worm caves and it was only an hour drive from the house which wasn’t bad at all We absolutely loved being greeted by the four Llamas on the property. They’re very large but very sweet and we got a huge kick out of feeding them pellets. I’ve reserved a lot of houses from Vrbo and this is now easily one of my favorites and I highly recommend reserving this house if you’re staying in the area.

This was our favorite rental we have ever stayed at. The views are gorgeous, central location to visit surrounding areas, had everything we needed and more. The llamas were a delight and we loved them. The kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed and more with some special touches we really appreciated!

My wife, her sister, and I, all in our 70s, stayed here for eleven nights while attending the International Breast Cancer Survivors Dragon Boat Festival at Lake Kirapiro. We booked well in advance and communicated several times with the highly responsive hosts. We received directions and access information well in advance of our arrival. All information was very clear. The lodging had a professional information book that we used after arrival. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the four gentle llamas and were delighted to find the refrigerator stocked with containers of milk, fresh orange juice, water, a bowl of fruit, and three dark chocolate Easter bunnies. There were containers of muesli and cornflakes on the counter, as well as a variety of Nespresso coffee pods for the machine. Since our stay was lengthy, our hosts replenished our towels, and bedding and provided additional milk, fruit, coffee, and cereals but no more chocolate bunnies :) We were able to meet Steph and her beautiful new baby girl and enjoyed speaking with her about New Zealand. My wife and I have stayed in numerous VRBO accommodations during our travels. This one ranks at the top of the list.
