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.

Would have been a great stay if the home was clean. Arrived and the crumbs from the previous person was still on the bench. Could tell the kitchen had not been cleaned down before we arrived or at all. The floors were filthy. We swept the floors ourselves as we had a little one playing on the floor. We would have vacuumed if we had access to one. Floors hadn’t been mopped or properly cleaned for a long time it seemed. Was let down by the cleanliness

This was the perfect relaxing weekend from a busy Auckland lifestyle! The hosts are amazing, made early check-in available. We were able to leave our dog at the property when we popped out to Palmy. The fireplace was absolutely amazing!! We had such a good time, thank you so much!! We will definitely come back for another weekend stay!

At the end of a busy week away from home, to come to Morunga, enjoy the quiet of a rural retreat, to feel safe & warm and to have a very "low key" weekend was wonderful. Cath's home-cooked meals and bread making course were highlights. The farm house is huge! The rooms are generous and the open plan kitchen family area are well thought out with all the facilities to indulge your cooking and baking desires (wood stove + conventional oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, water filter etc.). We will be back - I for one have a date with the wood stove to try a roast and a rice pudding! Everything is clean, tidy and in plentiful supply (no shortage of towels, blankets, etc.. Once the wood stove is going - the house is warm, but this is Kimbolton I.e. it's cold, and you will need your woolies for outside. The mornings were crisp and the kids loved exploring the orchard, finding the chickens and the tree house. Cath is great to have a yarn with and has a full commercial kitchen (as mentioned home cook meals can be purchased & bread making course is a treat you should try GF available, as well as jams, preserves etc.)& as well as retreat facilities for small groups. Simply - this is a lovely place to stay for family groups. The Ruahines are in all their glory on your door step. You're a stones throw from the village, Kiwitea, Cheltenham and Fielding. Do yourself a favour - come stay.

Delightful stay! Great hosts, roomy but cozy, comfortable accommodation with everything we needed...and our little dog had a great time too. Unusual to find a fenced property that will actually keep a small dog in without worrying. Beautiful area, and we will definitely go back!!
