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 had a fabulous 5 days at the Bach. It was so peaceful in a stunning setting. We went swimming, kayaking, fishing, and just relaxing under the Pohutukawa Tree. The hosts were incredible, and saw to our every need and request, even setting up fishing rods for us. The Bach was comfortable, and had everything we needed, with the views of course! It is a little out ot town, on a winding road, but that's what we love. The Bach is perfect for a couple get-away, families or just to recharge.

Can’t say enough good things about this home. Situated on the bay, the views are stunning. Amenities were also great. The kayaks were a nice addition and the bbq did the job nicely! Our host met us there and recommended a number of activities we did and thoroughly enjoyed. Book it if you can!

This was our second visit and was everything we remembered. This time we brought along a couple of our kids, their partners & our grandbaby. Kathryn & Hamish kindly allowed us to park a caravan for some extra beds. While the weather wasn't the greatest, we made the most of it including getting in some kayaking when the wind eased up. Close enough to civilisation while far enough to get the peace and quiet, we thoroughly enjoyed our week stay and the great hospitality of Hamish & Gaylene. Already planning trip number 3...

Had a fabulous extended weekend stay. Great hosts Hamish shared some fishing gear and we caught fish off the front lawn!! Such a wonderful time we've booked our next stay. If you're looking for a restful, recharging retreat with the most welcoming hosts look no further.

We were thrilled to spent a few days in this idyllic spot. It was so tranquil and quiet. Kathryn was a delightful host and even loaned me a rain jacket when mine was missing. Hamish provided us with fresh fish just pulled in for dinner. We will gladly return
