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.

A classic Kiwi bach, with most mod-cons, in a great position; an easy stroll to the beach. We were two families of four and the house accommodated us no problem. Weather was great during our stay meaning we could use the deck. Although the house needs some maintenance it really was good value. Booking and comms with the Manager were excellent. We recommend this bach as a great get away and Waihi Beach as a location with plenty on offer.

The house was lovely and the booking process was smooth and easy. There had been some flooding from the weather the week prior and we had great communication from the host about this. Will definitely book and stay again.

The house was ideal for our group of extended family. So close to the beach and in a lovely quiet area - in fact our young grandies were probably the noisiest in the area! Parking was a bit tight as trailer was left in our allotted area, but no other issues at all.

We had a lovely week in Waihi despite a couple of days of bad weather with Cyclone Gabrielle. The house was great, wonderful to be so close to the beach.

The house was a perfect location close to beach and shops. The property was clean and well-kept and was perfect for the family. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Deb

We booked and paid for a three night stay, only stayed one night. An expensive lesson not to take note of previous reviews. House was not up to the standard we’d expect for the nightly rate. Old house with wooden joinery. Windows don’t shut properly, wind whistles through the cracks, moisture from outside also gets into the rooms making them damp and mouldy smelling. Screen door broken and not usable. Dining table and 4 chairs very basic, (and uncomfortable) not helpful when you have 8 adults and you are charged for 8 adults. Beds uncomfortable, especially the double bunk bed, it has a very thin foam mattress, may as well have slept on the slats. The lounge carpet was wet by the hall door and was unbearably smelly. The carpet needs a good deep clean and a dehumidifier to remove the moisture and the musty smell. You could smell this as soon as you entered the back door. All 4 couples were unanimous in not enduring another night in this smelly damp house. The downstairs room is a converted garage. The plumbing is noisy and it also smells musty. You are expected the follow the cleaning tasks, (which we did and left it better than we found it) but you are only provided with a basic stick vacuum cleaner and basic cleaning products. Photos are deceiving with regard to parking. Very limited parking and no where to lock bikes up.

Loved the location of this property, could hear the waves from the property which was cool. Literally less than 5 mins away from the beach. The house is pretty old and could use a bit of love - was disappointed with appliances/lights that didn’t work, things leaking, windows cracked and unable to be open, old food left in the freezer etc. There is no cleaning fee in the listing so landlord expects cleaning such as vacuuming, mopping, cleaning bathrooms etc to be done. We ended paying $75 to get a cleaner to do it through the property manager. Was disappointing the focus on cleaning given the state the house was in when we arrived - hair in the bathrooms, kitchen and table had food over it, most things we had to wipe over before we did anything. Can’t fault the location but house wasn’t up to the standard we’d expect.
