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.

Friendly farmstay with Joe and Odette
We had a wonderful time at Joe and Odettes farmstay. The cottage is sparkling clean with a well appointed kitchen , sitting room and a nice outdoor seating area. Odette’s breakfasts were superb. Joe and Odette are friendly and helpful hosts and passed on helpful tips about island activities. Thanks for a great holiday. Penny and Rudi and Sophie

A breath of fresh air.
If you want to unwind and relax and commune with nature this place is it. Perfect for staying with friends whilst maintaining your own privacy as there are two bungalows. Perfect for couples. Jo is a present, friendly and helpful host, who provides all the fruit and eggs you could want. The novel experience of farmlife with chickens and goats is colourful and enjoyable. We benefited from the outdoor eating area complete with its own bbq where we enjoyed gathering altogether often late into the sunset and where we could also shelter from the rain without being cooped up. Our little bach was not the most recently renovated but had a perfectly adequate kitchenette (sometimes we borrowed utensils from the neighbours), a nice bathroom and shower and very pleasant bedroom with queen sized bed. I loved being at the base of the mountain amongst tropical lush greenery, foliage and flowers. A local store and burger joint is just on the main street within easy walking distance.

Amazing place
Awesome little self contained bungalow on a cute little farm block. Lots of chickens and roosters, cats and goats to keep you entertained and heaps of fruit trees that they let you happily raid. Joe was the most amazing host, super friendly and helpful and even dropped off drinking coconuts for us. Super close to Muri Beach about 5 min drive and 15min from town. We will definitely be back!!

Wonderful Place To Stay In Rarotonga ❤️
My daughter and I had a wonderfully relaxing, stay at Jo’s Farm Stay in Matavera. Jo and Odette, are such lovely, friendly, caring and kind people. They provide a home away from home. Lovely atmosphere, delicious breakfasts in the mornings. We loved staying in our cottage/unit. We also met a few other visitors who were also staying at their place, which was really nice. Thank you Odette and Jo, for contributing to our relaxing enjoyable stay in Rarotonga. All the best for the rest of the year. Regards, Carla & Kayla (Auckland, New Zealand) xxxxxxx ❤️❤️🌺❤️❤️xxxxxxxx
