“We had a lovely time bach are were really helpful when we ran out of gas for bbq.”- Markelle, December 2023
“The steepness of the stairs needs to be emphasised in the blurb of the Bach.”
The left hand ascending rail is flush to the wall at the top so you cannot grip it. The right hand ascending rail needs to be removed and replaced with a railing that runs the full length of the stairs. A warning for those with small children need to be included. It is safer to walk down backwards from the top. The cleaner had not looked under the beds as I found clothes from the visitors before us in the sleepout. The toilet roll holder and towel racks are not secured and need replacing. The shower is awesome water pressure. The upstairs beds are really comfortable. The round dining table is great for 4 people to sit around and chat. Good fridge.- Chrissy, January 2023
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback, we will certainly address this and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Bachcare

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.
