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.

Amazing Stay!
Great place to go and stay for a family holiday! Not too far from Auckland and Hamilton. Lovely house, really clean and fully equipped with anything you might need. The hosts were so lovely and were happy to chat and show us around the farm and all the animals. Will definitely be coming back!

A home far away from home ...
Anke and Alex's farmstay is a true home away from home. Equipped with all mod cons - including a washing machine! - and located far away from city or traffic noise. If you like your breakfast outside, surrounded by bird song (or curious donkey or horse stares), Kereru Farmstay is the place to be. Or how about relaxing in the spa, available 24/7? And to top it all off, Anke and Alex are the best hosts you could wish for. Do bring your own car, though. As the only public transport going past the gate is the local school bus. And only during school days ...

A peaceful, quiet retreat to escape Auckland
We really enjoyed our stay here at Kereru Farmstay. The owners were very friendly, helpful and welcoming, while giving us plenty of space to unwind and enjoy our break. The hot spa was amazing, and a really nice touch after a long day of travelling for us. We would certainly recommend Kereru farmstay to anyone looking for an idyllic rural setting, not too far from Auckland. We had a 15 month old with us, and she was happily catered for, and enjoyed looking out the window at the farm animals. A wonderful place! :)
