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.

Its a great property this one, and its the second ...
Its a great property this one, and its the second time the family has stayed there. However there are a couple of things that didn't work. The BBQ, one of the burners has completed rusted out. We love BBQing at that property. The other is the hot water. I think there might be something not working on the hot water cylinder. One day one we had some hot water but on day two, we had no hot water. We had to boil the jug to wash the dishes. Those are just minor things really, the consensus from the whole family is that we would go back in a heartbeat, we just love going there.

Gathering to Scatter Ashes for Nana
Very convenient for 3 generations of different ages to stay together. Kitchen well equipped, beds comfortable, outside great for play. Being surrounded on all 4 sides by neighbours felt a bit close, otherwise proximity to beach and playground great.

We booked as a group of friend going away for a golfing holiday.
The property was fit for purpose and it was nice that the whole seven of us could be accommodated in the one house. When we go away usually we are in two separate units so was really good to be all together and with six bedrooms nobody had to share (except the married couples!).

Awesome bach that was very nice, spacious and child friendly
Awesome bach that was very nice, spacious and child friendly. We enjoyed the art and decor in the bach as well as all the homely fixings, as it was well equipped and had everything we needed. The location was great as well as it was a short walk to the beach, and provided a good base from which to do day trips up the peninsula and around Waihi. Would stay here again.

Was a perfect house for our multi family group.
Was a perfect house for our multi family group. It is very clean and tidy and 5 minutes walk to the beach or to Tui Park playground. Lovely big backyard for the kids to play in (although the neighbours didn't appreciate us playing bat down in the backyard at 2pm as it was too hard for their toddler to sleep!! Our baby in the house managed to sleep through it). Definitely hope to be back again.

We loved our stay at this classic kiwi-style bach
We loved our stay at this classic kiwi-style bach. It was wonderful to find a reasonably-priced place that could fit our large family group, and it was well set up with pretty much everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.
