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.

Retro inside and out - very clean and tidy. Had everything we needed. The winning formula for this place is the views. Highly recommend as a place and the great communication.

Great retro home with views to die for, comfy queen bed, large comfy sofas, decent size TV & good shower pressure, all must haves on our list, but above all the most incredible views across Tairua & Pauanui with boats & jetskis to watch come & go. The old Mill House cafe is afew mins walk & fabulous, & the beachfront half hour stroll to town is great. Highly recommended!

As per the other reviews this is such an awesome spot to just chill, relax and take in the view across the water! Great amenities (cooktop, oven, fridge freezer etc) - all you need for a great stay.

The house looked better than the photos! Beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything and more that was needed. The deck was massive and the view was majestic! Heaps of parking as it is at the end of a dead end street. It's quite private also as neighbours are at a distance. Went fishing right in front of the house, bait shop at the end of the rd (1min drive). Created some amazing memories with my family. Had a slight concern that was addressed straight away by the property manager without fuss. 10/10, we hope to stay again in the future. Feeling very grateful, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Wow! What a view! Just sat on the deck for hours and watched all the boats going out of the harbour. Went fishing on the pontoon just below the house. There were lots of walks to do. What a location. The house was most comfortable and contained everything you could need. The manager was most helpful with my enquires before the trip and we were given very detailed instructions which made the settling into the house easy. We would love to come back again sometime.
