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.

Waikino Wonder
The perfect place to relax and unwind. So comfortable - and wonderful views. The hosts are simply outstanding, so easy to speak and ready to help. Positioned close to the Hauraki Rail Trail - the ideal spot to come back to(the deck) after a day cycling or the easy road trip to Whangamata for lunch!!

The area has a lot of hidden gems to explore and easy driving distance to Waihi and Waihi beaches.
Wonderful hosts, very welcoming and willingly to share local knowledge. A well maintained property. The house was immaculate,, extremely comfortable both inside and out on the deck. A great place for the dog. We really appreciated how dog friendly it was. We will be back.

Easy, central, comfy, great communication
This is an amazing property with everything you need in a handy location. Hosts are warm and friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, can't speak highly enough of them. Also a great shower! Recommend this place for a relaxed, comfortable stay in the Waikino area.

Well appointed; friendly; immaculate
A lovely stay; such a picturesque setting and neighbourhood, close to all the local sights and attractions. Particularly impressed by how spotless the cottage was. Felt like home-away-from-home for two relaxing days. Thank you.

Serenity with activities close by
This was a wonderful experience, a quiet place to stay to retire to after doing all the local activities including the rail trail which between Waihi Beach, Waikino , Paeroa and Thames is quite a bit so you need a few days. Our hosts were genuine and wonderful people who threw in the extras and only too happy to help and provide their local knowledge which added and made our stay a delight which included supprise Easter treats and ensuring our dog had all home comforts. Hopefully we will get the time to experience their wonderful hospitality again

Weekend stay
We really loved staying at the bach. It was very cosy and well equipped. The garden and surrounding area is lovely and peaceful and it has a great view from the deck. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Thanks Glenda and Barb!

Would prefer to keep The Nest a secret, just for us!!!
What an incredible experience, from the fresh flowers at check-in, to the warm and friendly conversations during our stay, right thru to the big hugs as we left. Glenda and Barb are such wonderful hosts, and The Nest is the perfect retreat. We felt so welcome, and did not want to leave. Historic and picturesque Waikino is a great place to visit, with fabulous Waihi Beach just a short journey away. We will DEFINITELY be back!!

Cozy cottage getaway
Nestled amongst mature trees and beautiful garden with rural outlook. Relaxing and quiet but close to shops and outdoor activities. Highly recommend.
