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 arrived late in the day, and the fire had been lit for us so the house was cozy and inviting. The beds are good, the water pressure is on point and the place is supplied with everything you could think of. It's only a short 7min drive (if that) back into central Taupo, the Landing and the new Countdown are very close and if you're heading to the mountain, you're in the right side of town to head down there. This is a great spot and one we will be back to for our next trip.

Lovely property with view of lake. Our Host's were very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Well kitted out Kitchen and plenty of spare linen. Warm and cosy. Very close to lake for walking and cycling. Would definitely book again.

Really comfy! Unlucky we were in Taupo for a tournament as would have loved to be able to spend a bit more time just relaxing at the accommodation.

Comfy, wonderful stay.
We had the most delightful stay at Wharewaka cottage. Such a warm & comfortable place with everything we needed. Gill was just the best host & stayed in touch providing friendly helpful information through out our stay.

Home away from home
Lovely cottage in a quiet, beautiful location - just what we were after. Furnished like a home, rather than a rental, this was a very comfortable place to stay. Only downside was the limited WiFi, which was restricted to only two connections at a time - tricky when there are more than two people in the group. The hosts were friendly, and communication excellent. Many thanks for letting us share your lovely cottage.
