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.

We stayed as a group of 9 celebrating significant birthdays. The house really lends itself to groups of friends & family. It was fantastic, well appointed, luxurious rooms & underfloor heating in the big bathroom. Loved the quirkiness and layout of this amazing place. Highly recommend staying here- so much to do in the area or even just enjoy the fabulousness of staying put! Could have easily stayed another night.

Wooden beauty
Stayed for a pre-wedding celebration event. Beautiful location, beautiful house and was the perfect place for us to have our celebrations. As a bonus, it's well equipped with everything we needed, particularly the kitchen. Thanks so much for the amazing time!

Amazing House For Groups with Best Host Ever Experienced
We booked for a group celebration in March 2022 for 15 adults. I have booked many large houses before but have never had a host as friendly, communicative and enthusiastic as Jen. Jen offered to come to the house with her husband Dewi and their catering partner Helen, and cater a three course themed meal for us for a very reasonable price. It completely made our experience - relaxed but professional, involved but also wanting to respect our privacy. They pulled out all the stops to make our weekend amazing. On top of that the house was incredibly well-equipped with every kitchen accessory and pantry item you'd ever need, the rooms were large and comfortable, and the views were amazing. If you are looking for accommodation for your next event then there isn't anything better I've come across in the past, and I highly recommend getting one of the nights catered. - Sam & The Great Gatsby Gang

Incredible stay, can't wait to return ❤️
We stayed here as a group of 13 to celebrate New Years Eve together, and we had the most spectacular time at Jen and Dewi's beautiful property. The place has all the amenties you need, as well as a very inviting feel and incredible views. We can't thank Jen and Dewi enough for inviting us to stay in their handmade (!!) slice of paradise, and we will absolutely be back in the future. 10/10 recommend.

My friends and I had an amazing stay at housewithnonails over New Year’s Eve. It is a beautiful, unique place unlike anything ive ever seen. Jen and Dewi were amazing hosts and available at any and all times if we needed anything. Dewi even came to like the wood bbq for us on NYE. The house is kitted out with just about anything you would need. Can’t wait to stay again.
