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.

Lovely setting, very clean and tidy. We had a very relaxing stay. I enjoyed a long walk in the orchard near the river. We didn't use the hot tub but I enjoyed the sauna. Thank you to our hosts. Merv, Jan and Heather

Good quality stay, has everything required. Maybe bit far from attractions, especially when going out at night for dinner.

We had a lovely three nights stay at the property at Haumoana. Very relaxing and not too far from the three cities of Havelock North, Hastings and Napier. The perfect location. Very cozy place and inviting place to stay.

This was a perfect getaway among orchards (many of them in blossom at this time of year). There was space around the house and the river nearby to keep the kids occupied, but it was just a short drive to Havelock North with dining, honey tasting etc. We enjoyed the outside bath, sauna and Netflix. The kids loved the two (adult) bikes as well. And the birdsong in the morning was almost deafening. Thanks for the lovely stay (the owners we never met :)!
