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.

Communication with host was fast & excellent, with easy check-in. Lovely host. We stayed 3-days.. House is right off of the main highway which is super - a little hard to find in the dark but we managed it fine. House is an interesting experience - especially if you like history. I liked it. My husband didn't, he said there was so much stuff in it that if he put something down he might lose or forget it. Handles on cookware were all very loose, we tightened them so they are OK now. Some of the large mugs in the drawer were chipped, easy to miss. FIngerprints on microwave and door handle that goes to laundry room. Bathroom water pressure and heat were excellent. Heated blanket in the bedroom we stayed was super - we ran it for 15 mins. W&D good. Interestingly there was no mention of the water reclamation/processing pools directly over the road between the house and the beach which I'm sure surfaced way after the house was originally built. One of the pillows was hard & would benefit from being replaced, rest were OK. Linens excellent. Tea bags, oatmeal etc provided. Interestingly though it was the only home of the 7 we stayed in on our trip that did not leave milk - either fresh or long-life. Ie it was the only one with a bare fridge, other homes left milk, eggs, chocolate,even bread to differentiate themselves for weary traveller. Not a deal breaker I agree, just something to consider as often its the small things we remember. All in all A-OK, just some easy quick fixes..

Warm and comfortable house with quirky theme. Host pre warmed the house and was very friendly and helpful. Good internet and I spent a couple of days working at the kitchen table while the rest of the family was busy in Greymouth and Hokitika. Would definitely return.

Very warm, welcoming and comfortable. Enjoyed the quirky deco, really clean and easy to stay. Beautiful sunsets across the road and very low noise despite busy road nearby.

We loved this gorgeous 3 bedroom house. Everything you need is here and Jayne has curated very pretty bricabrac, antiques and textiles plus modern appliances and antique porcelain. Too many details to mention but we really loved it. Close to town and the beach.
