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.

Good place, was as advertised and lots of room for our family. Foosball table was nice. Only downside is that some mattresses weren't in good condition.

Plenty of room for all the family. We had plumbing issues during our stay and the property manager went above and beyond to sort issues for us. Thank you

This place was so perfect for our extended family!...
This place was so perfect for our extended family! 3 living areas meant that the children had their space and the adults had theirs. Two kitchens was a great for those of us with food allergies. Plenty of bedrooms, beds and a well equiped kitchen. Beautiful views from upstairs, a great DVD collection upstairs and Netflix downstairs. 5 mins drive to the beach and the place was lovely and clean. One thing to note is there is only one freezer so don't bring a heap of bulk frozen food like we did 😂 plenty of fridge space though!

Place was perfect for a large family group such as ours. Loads of space. Fully equipped kitchens, laundry, lots of games and toys. Shame about the condition of a couple of beds and BBQ.

Great place for groups
Seven of us - a writers' group - stayed 4 nights. Wonderful retreat, quiet, scenic, lots of space. House was just as advertised.

Space for everyone
This is a great property for a group. The three living areas mean that people can do different activities simultaneously- watch TV, work on puzzles, relax by the fire, watch a movie, play games . It is very quiet. It is less than 10 minutes from Mangawhai Heads township and the same to the ocean beach.
