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.

Incredible place, location and access to indicators, whale bay and manu bay (very short drive). Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, as did the whole family! If I have my way, I’m am coming back for longer!

My husband and I stayed in this location in February 2023 for three nights. We were absolutely mesmerized by the view from the kitchen and the upstairs bedroom. The waves crashing on the rocks not far from the house instantly put us at peace in this patch of paradise. The house itself is safely nestled near a popular surfing location. The house feels larger than life with its large tv, tall ceilings, and spacious rooms. The full size fridge and large pantry were also handy as we were able to fully unpack during our stay. Would recommend staying here!

An easy 5 stars! This property is in a stunning location and the 'bach' is just as wonderful. Perfect for a family who loves being close to the surf. Amazing communication with the property manager as well. Already thinking about when we can return!

Open up the front door and the place is breath taking. Open plan living opens out onto expansive deck and yard with a view of the ocean. Good facilities and comfy beds. Thanks!
