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.

An amazing location
We wanted peace and tranquility in a very natural 'New Zealand' setting and that was definitely what we had! With every room looking out over the coast you could virtually sleep under the thousands of stars of the dark sky and be woken by the warmth and light of the fantastic sunrise! The sound of the waves against the rocks were very therapeutic. The house had everything you could possibly need. Bill, the owner, was very quick to respond and supplied a very informative folder about the house and locality. Rachel the local manager was so welcoming and helpful during our stay. I would so love to return but stay for longer!

AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PLACE WITH A MAGNIFICENT VIEW OF THE OCEAN AND NATURE !!!
This place is amazing! My dream came true when I entered this house. You will find there everything you need even more. Complete privacy and a quiet place you will not want to leave! We enjoyed an outdoor workout with beautiful ocean view, where you can find a bench with dumbbells and many other things. We will definitely return :)

Private, peaceful, perfect
Amazing place to spend a few weeks. Idyllic location, on a hill overlooking the bay. Every room has the same fabulous view and wide doors opening out onto the upper or lower terrace. Clean and comfortable. The hot tub in the garden is a good bonus. Much appreciated! The detailed information sent by the owner on booking was very detailed and totally accurate and helpful. Any queries or requests we had when staying were dealt with promptly and satisfactorily. Highly recommended.

Absolute bliss
First, I would like to thank Bill for making his home available so that families like us can experience his beautiful place. We stayed for 6 nights and had the best time! Everyone was over the moon with the view, the kayaks (saw a penguin), the spa (divine), the gym and even the guitar got played. It was absolutely perfect. After a day out on the bay or in town, we all looked forward to coming back to sit on the deck and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of 'home'. We left reluctantly but it was such a special place it will always be remembered.

Perfection
One of the most beautiful views we've seen, stylish and modern property, and professionally managed but with local charm. We were definitely satisfied and would visit again.

A real treat for either a couple, a family, or two couples
We have stayed here before as a couple and ever since have been keen to take our grown up kids back here when we visited NZ again as it's such a special spot. Due to the flexibility of this home you have two separate living areas which provided accommodation for 6 nicely. The "two living areas" layout mean this is great for a couple, a family, or two couples, so there is a lot of flexibility. The home is beautifully laid out with quality furnishings, an awesome view, and best of all provides total privacy in a comparatively remote and isolated location. There is no better place to just chill out and get away from it all, complete with all the luxury you need not to mention the incredible ocean views. Those evenings just lazing on the deck watching the sunsets were just the bomb! And the spa is another added extra since we were there that again has an awesome view. Bill is very helpful and easy to deal with, and you couldn't ask for a better host. This is our second stay and hopefully won;t be our last!

The Perfect Retreat
Fantastic place in a quiet little area. We booked this place to finish off our two week holiday with relaxation in mind and that's exactly what we got. The views were spectacular, the house beautifully presented and the spa was a great added bonus. Both beaches within walking distance (despite the big driveway) and often to yourself. Everything down to a key was explained in the handy booklet from aircon to TV, from dishwasher to spa. By far the best ending to our NZ holiday!!

Spectacular view and place!
Bill's place was absolutely amazing! The view was spectacular and the location was perfect - close to many beautiful Bay's (Taupiri, Elliott's and Oke). The place was spotless; beds were comfortable - overall the place had everything we needed, plus more (gym, hot tub, kayaks...) We also received a warm welcome! Thanks so much for the fond memories. We would definitely come back.
