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.

Mike and Kate are great hosts. They're very kind and offered us carrots and courgettes from their garden which we appreciated. They've made a fantastic job of decorating the sun room which was a nice place to have a BBQ and to dine. The accommodation was very clean and tidy. My daughter loved the chickens and was even allowed to pick one up. Not too far from the bridal veil falls and windmills (5 minutes away) and Raglan was a 15-20 minute drive away. Fantastic views and beautiful sunsets. It's a country paradise.

Really wasy orocess of booking and checking on fron the outset. Host was good at keeping in touch and very helpful. The accommodation is slightly remote, but adds to the appeal. Kids loved it and we all got a really good chance to turn off and relax. Would recommend

We had a great stay at Michael and Kate's property. It was clean, comfortable and quiet, and in a handy location to check out the surrounding area. Michael and Kate were great hosts and went the extra mile to help us when we had a flat tyre. Thanks for a great stay.

Peaceful and picturesque. You are literally on top of a hill and look down over fields. The accomodation was spacious and felt like new. The separate kitchen was definitely a highlight. It had heaps of character and was an amazing experience to just sit and have dinner looking over the pastures. The host, Mike called me earlier to tell me about road conditions and was there to greet and give a tour of the place. He was a really nice guy to have a chat with. Highly recommend this place.

Raglan getaway
Wonderful stay in such a picturesque spot. Thoroughly enjoyed the rural setting with spectacular sunsets. Kate and Mike were very welcoming and we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay (the sunroom was an added bonus!) Would definitely go back.
