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.

All we needed for a comfortable and relaxed stay. Lovely hosts who made us very welcome. Daughter and son-in-law joined us as a surprise for my husband's birthday. All went very well, and we had a lovely stay.

What a wonderful escape. The hosts could not have been more welcoming. The outdoor kitchen was perfect even when it was raining. Felt like a home away from home, and was very conveniently located to Lake Kirapiro where we had a festival, and close to Cambridge and Hamilton. If you need a relaxing vacation from your vacation this is the place!

Perfect location near cycle trails, We even biked to Hamilton Gardens! Maungatautari Sanctuary was close by . Mary and her Mum Rosemary ,were just such amazingly friendly hosts, we felt very welcome .The Cottage was just lovely, very comfortable and super shower. The garden is beautiful and view over the country side.The rural sounds and vistas are superb, a Ruru close by, was heard on several nights. Rosemary provided lovely breakfast with produce from her garden. Mary was great to chat with about the farm , her enthusiasm for her volunteer work on Maungatautari Mountain with trapping and the Kiwi breeding programme had us super interested.We were so pleased she shared this with us and we loved our walk on the Rimu track. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. You roadside plantings of cherry trees is amazing and a legacy for years to come.

The house was basic, but had all the facilities required, with an extensive DVD collection. The location was great, screened from the road, but right at the beach.
