“The main problem was damp and smell of mould in the end south east bedroom.”
There was a similar problem in the sleepout.
There was a similar problem in the sleepout.- Keith, October 2023
“Nice and clean and tidy with an excellent roaring fire for cold winter days.”- Mark, July 2023
“Great little bach with everything we needed.”
Beds were comfortable. Microwave will need an upgrade as doesn't work particularly well. Kids and us really enjoyed our stay.- Roanna, April 2023
“This is an okay little Bach but we did struggle a bit with the lack of space in the bedrooms.”
The beds are quite small (doubles, I believe?) and if you have any luggage, you pretty much have to climb over it every time you go to bed. The kids bedroom/bunk bed room goes off the main kitchen & lounge area and the walls are super thin, which means you can pretty much just whisper once the kids are in bed. Not ideal. The sofas in the lounge have seen better days and are not very comfortable. There were quite a few cobwebs inside, and the patio area didn’t seem very well maintained either. The deck is quite rustic and we caught a couple of splinters there, better wear your jandals. The location was the best thing about it, but I don’t think we’ll be back.- Nikki, February 2023

“Another enjoyable stay at Little Lockwood.”
Awesome to see a new kitchen installed since last year. Would be great to see a full size fridge or maybe a second fridge/freezer in the garage. Also a family sized BBQ would be nice. Love this place. We'll stay again.- Luke, December 2022
“Great property in a great location.”
Also wonderful to be able to take our dog with us. Lots of walks just a stones throw away. I do however agree with a number of other comments that it could be just about perfect with some different furniture. The couches and the bed were not that comfortable, particularly if the purpose for your holiday is to relax, and have lovely sleep ins. We took our outdoor bean bags with us so did have comfort while lounging outside. Other than that, a lovely place.- Miranda, October 2022
“Loved staying here on a number of occasions and will stay again.”
Heatpump and wood burner make the house toasty warm in winter. (Thanks to the hosts for turning on the heatpump before we arrived!) Excellent wood supply. Lounge gets great sun. Love the lockup garage for toys and gear. Fridge/ freezer is a bit small for a family so a second one in the garage would be awesome. Likewise would be great to see an up-sized BBQ too. Awesome bach and only two minutes to the boat ramp.- Luke, July 2022
“Easy to book with bachcare, house was presented nicely had everything that we needed.”
The house had a nice feel too it, and spacious. Master room had limited space. One of the things we look for in a holiday home is comfort, we did not get this unfortunately the couches were all dated, low to the ground and in our opinion uncomfortable to sit on. The mattress in the master bedroom was so very hard it had no give . The first morning both of us woke with backpack and had little sleep which was not a good start to a birthday weekend away. The second night we tried sleeping on top of the duvet but ended up sometime during the night sleeping separately. I'd suggested a new med mattress or provide a foam mattress topper to help. Despite the comfort level for us...it's a lovely home! One to the lake as well. But we won't stay again.- Heidi, March 2022

“This was a pleasant and well presented property to stay at, with everything we needed for 4 adults and 2 children/teenagers.”
The level of service and contact leading up to the stay provided by the property manager was excellent and Bachcare was excellent. Highly recommended and very likely to stay again.- Ross, April 2021

“This was a warm and homely bach that was perfect for a quiet getaway.”
We loved being able to take our dog with us, but it's worth knowing that the property isn't fenced so if you have a 'wanderer', you need to keep on your toes :)- Steph, April 2019
We think Little Lockwood is a great place for a quiet getaway too Steph - and yes there is no fencing on the property however dogs are allowed inside so its best suited for dogs that like to stay close to their owners! Property Owner

About the location
Located on the Southern end of Lake Taupo, Omori is a more secluded area around the lake. There's plenty of native bush and bushwalks to do here, as well as water-based activities on the lake such as kayaking, swimming, boating and water skiing. Because the area stretches over a hill, most of the holiday homes have a great view of the lake. All of our Omori holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
