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.

Family adventure
Just brilliant. We arrived in the middle of the night. Our instructions were clear and simple and the lovely breakfast for when we woke up was so thoughtful. The place was beautiful and perfectly located for our adventures to the beach and hobbiton and Rotarua etc. The kids loved the pool and the cat! Julian was always so polite and helpful for anything we needed. Highly recommend.

Very classy.
Perfect spot for a retreat. House is beautiful, stylish and clean. I was sad that we didn't plan to stay there longer.

We would highly recommend a stay at Poripori Homestead. We had a very friendly welcome
The house had everything you could need and felt like a home from home. Julian and Francis were on hand to give us lots of advice on where to visit. From here we went to The Hobbiton, Rotorua, Mount Maunganui and a little longer trip to Waitomo Caves and enjoyed the local beauty spots. If it wasn’t so far from the Uk we’d definitely book again!

The accomodation was comfy, spacious and spotless in a beautiful garden/ farm like environment on the outskirts of Tauranga. The kitchen was well appointed and stocked with all that was needed for a short stay away from home. The outlook over the pool and garden with the sun streaming in in the morning a wonderful way to start the day.I highly recommend the Poripori Homestead and would stay there again without hesitation.

Comfortable home, well located for trips down to Mt Maunganui, Hobbiton , Rotorua etc. Great kitchen and living area to comfortably accommodate 6 people. Hosts very helpful. Some traffic noise during the day. Would go back and keep fingers crossed for some better weather. Thank you.
