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.

Jo’s FarmStay was the perfect place for us during our one month trip to Raratonga. Our cottage had ample space, was very clean, and bright with a cheerful decor. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the colourful tropics abounded everywhere we looked from our large deck. Morning coffee from that deck was amazing. Odette and Joe were the by far one of the most knowledgeable and gracious couples we have met on our travels. They treat their guests like family and share all their entertaining stories and best recommendations of what to see and do on the Island. Don’t be surprised to be invited to a communal breakfast with these two hosting. Seasonal fresh fruit, coconut water from their property, still in the coconut, fresh breads and pastries, and that is just some of the breakfast goodies you will be enjoying. The location is peaceful yet still close to amenities. A local grocer is just a short walk up the road. Wonderful restaurants and ocean front resorts are just a walk, bike, or car ride away. We totally recommend a stay at Jo’s Farmstay. You will not be disappointed.

Joe's farm stay is a great alternative and great value for money for those not wanting a 'resort' experience. Only a 5 minute walk up to the main road, the cottages are well-appointed with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The surroundings are beautiful and Joe and Odette are incredibly hospitable and a fountain of information on local sights, activities, and culture. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Joe's and highly recommend it.

We had the BEST time! We were there for a couple's break, & as we live semi-rurally we wanted similar for our holiday & it couldn't have been better! This is a cute little farmstay cottage with all we needed onsite, or in walking distance, including a grocery store & a really nice burger joint. And due to the bus stop being close by, anything else was an easy bus ride to town. We walked to beautiful Muri Beach most days but if not in the mood for walking the bus ride's only 5 minutes. Hosts Joe & Odette were amazing! Friendly, welcoming & they couldn't do enough for us - they really made our holiday. Their local knowledge helped in finding the best things to do too. If wanting a farm stay style break away we'd highly recommend 😊.

Our accomodations had everything we needed to be comfortable. It was clean, tidy and airy. It was lovely to relax on the deck and enjoy a nice cold or hot beverage with in it's beautiful manicured surroundings.. The breakfasts the host provided was absolutely delicious. The farm animals were also fun to watch. Theres also a semi inclosed bbq area which is great for entertaining your guest or used as another seating area to enjoy. I would definitely recommend this accomodations to anyone who enjoys the peaceful, spacious, farm style environment. The host live at the top of the property and are the most amazing, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people we've met. We had a fabulous time here that we plan to return. It's a 10/10 for these guys.
