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.

Couldn’t Ask For More!!!
Anne and David’s beautiful suite overlooking the magestic hills and valleys was a sight to behold! Their personal touches of fresh flowers fruit and veggies along with all the necessities from home made this a 10+ stay in our books. Optimially situated close to beaches to explore and hikes and walks was perfect for our time. Their warm hospitality and their interest in passing along local treasures was so appreciated. A highlight for us was helping to move some sheep on the property and sitting on the deck in amongst the citrus trees and the beautiful birds. We would love to return to this one of a kind homestay.

Superb modern cottage with wonderful views
Only a few minutes off a major road this modern cottage feels totally rural in position and outlook. The views across orchards towards rolling hills are superb. Light, spacious and airy the cottage has a wide deck with table and chairs, ideal for breakfast with views or for simply sitting and reading. Large bed with a glass wall offering more views and a good size bathroom. Although the owner lives next door that house is not visible from any window in the cottage. Waitanga, with its restaurants and shops is some 20 minutes drive, as are several beaches including Cathedral Cove. We thought this was one of the most impressive B & Bs we have ever stayed in and we'd love to return.

Best self contained accomodation I have ever stayed in
Beautiful cottage set in an awesome rural location. Unbelievable views over the surrounding countryside. The cottage is beautifully built and well equipped. Its one of those properties where the owners just wouldn't compromise on quality - and it shows. Definitely recommend. Nice welcome pack to greet us and even a glass of wine with the owners who live just adjacent to the cottage.

Beautiful Peace and Quiet
A well appointed cottage with amazing views of the hills and valleys of the Coramandel. Birds, quail, and gentle showers made this home an amazing place to stay after our arrival to Auckland. Views from the living area overlooked a Kiwi 🥝 farm. It was close to beaches, shopping, and day trips. The cottage was larger than expected and well appointed. Anne & David have created a welcoming environment for a short or extended stay. You will not be disappointed if you book this rental.

A Breath of Fresh Air
Rental is off the beaten track overlooking a beautiful green valley. Perfect escape if you want a break from the busier tourist spots. It is well located for a couple of the better known tourist places - Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Rock. Good base for exploring the rest of the Coromandel. The accommodation is comfortable with a spacious deck area attached. Birds, Rabbits, Horses etc. can be seen from the deck and their friendly dog Bruno may visit for a pat on the head! Cooking facilities are adequate and we were provided with provisions for a nice cooked breakfast. Owners are friendly and approachable and I would thoroughly recommend this property.

A Hidden Gem ideally located for Hahai, Cooks and Hot Water Beach and beyond
Located above the Coroglen river flats and surrounded by views, and bird song this home-stay is blissfully quiet and enjoys all day sun. Just 20 mins from all the top beaches of the Coromandel it is the ideal location from which to explore the region. The owners, Anne and David have extensive knowledge of the out of the way locations to visit, places to walk and eat. They will even take you the local river for a swim! The accommodation is bright, contemporary, clean and very comfortable. The garden is loaded with fruit trees of many types. It's a place you will want to go back to over and over again!

Wish we could have stayed longer
Rental is clean , modern, and very comfortable. The deck is great for relaxing with a view of the valley. A carport protects your car. Other perks is she has a drying rack and a couple of beach towels which helped us out. We would hit the crowds on the beach during the day, but had quiet at night. The place is even prettier than the pictures.

Wonderful!
We travelled with our three children at Christmas time. Anne & Dave were so welcoming, our daughters decorated their Christmas tree! We loved every minute of it and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you for being so welcoming and entertaining for our children. Arlen still looks for Bruno! Beautiful scenery and very comfortable bed! Wonderful!
