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.

Perfect large family gathering place
Location was great and ranch was fantastic. Large living areas for everyone to spread out, open fires, huge kitchen and perfect party room for our Dad's 80th. Natalie was brilliant to deal with and went to the extra effort of putting a couple of haystacks in the room for our western themed party. Plenty of play equipment for kids and individual rooms for quiet times away from the crowd, Definitely recommended!

A Magical Place.
Island Bay Ranch is a very special place. It was perfect for our 3 night stay with our beautiful children and grandchildren. It had absolutely everything needed for a fun, relaxing and private getaway. The property is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean throughout with very comfortable beds, a large and well appointed kitchen, loads of refrigeration, amazing in door and outdoor living areas, a fabulous fire pit area and a beautiful in ground pool and trampoline. Communication during the booking process was excellent. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Island Bay Ranch. Thank you Natalie!

Spacious country accommodation with plenty to keep you busy.
Our women's football team rented out the entire resort for the weekend to celebrate the end of a successful season. We were surprised when we arrived on site as the online photo's really don't do this property justice. It is beyond spacious, well equipped and kept our whole team busy for the weekend. We had plans to venture out to town on the Saturday night but the team didn't want to leave the accommodation as we were having so much fun. The owners are a delight to deal with and we all finished the weekend feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Thanks for a great weekend Island Bay Ranch!

Family holiday
We have just had our annual family holiday here, we have been for past 4 years. There was 32 of us, ages ranging from 3 yrs - 75yrs, this place caters for all our ages. There is something to entertain us all such as tennis, swimming pool, heated spa, darts, pool table, table tennis, board games, extensive library, kids play equipment, trampoline and sporting equipment. The main building has a well equipped kitchen, meals area, lounge area with open fire place, so beautiful to have a toasty raging fire on a cold winters day. Enough room inside even when the weather is ordinary. There is also an enclosed outdoor area with a slow combustion fire for those chilly winter days, absolutely beautiful in here when the sun is shining in. The accommodation is made of 6 cabins each with their own ensuite. We were lucky to have the privilege to use the newly renovated bathrooms of cabins 1 & 2. Beautifully renovated!!! The cabins have a queen bed, set of bunks and 4 cabins also have trundle beds. Kitchenette as well. The entire property is well maintained with manicured lawns. The accommodation is spotlessly clean. Natalie is an absolute gem to deal with. Looking forward to our holiday next year
