DESIREStayed July 2021
I stayed here with my family so we could be close to the snow. It was raining all weekend however we didn't mind staying inside as the house was cosy and warm. The home is spacious, clean and has everything you need for your stay away. The kitchen is also well equipped. Highly recommend to large families as there is enough space you wont be in each others faces. We will definitely be back!

GloriaStayed January 2020
Beautiful well equipped house- everything about the house was beautiful. We were amazed at how spacious the layout was, a backyard with lemon tree, everything you'd need in a kitchen and a beautiful view of Lake Taupo from the top deck. Highly recommend to large families who want a nice cosy warm stay :)

+ Good location, supportive property manager, big house, generaly clean rooms, kitchen and toilet/bathrooms. We were allowed stay the day of checkout as no one booked it that day. We also got early check in. - Could be extremely hot in summers including night times and opening up the windows will allow mosquitoes and other insects to come in. Lots of spiders on the ceiling and walls in the entire house. Lots of expired used and unused food items in the kitchen, some of it we got rid of with the help of property manager Mike.
Thanks for your review Emad. It has been a very hot summer, and while we cannot control the weather we do always clearly set out whether a property has AC on the Amenities list. We're glad you were able to get assistance from your Holiday Manager Mike, that is the beauty of our local Holiday Managers, they're always close by and ready to help! We'd love to welcome you back in the future.

KathleenStayed November 2019
A home with a lovely view and plenty of space. There was a very pleasant patio and a great barbecue which we very much enjoyed. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and crockery and the facilities were good. However there were a lot of things left by the owner that made it seem very much someone else's home; the fridge and pantry contained all sorts.The rooms had good storage and were comfortable and I think it was good value for money.
Hi Kathleen, thanks for your feedback about your recent stay at Kaimanawa Lookout. It's always valuable to receive this sort of infoformation, there is an additional fridge and freezer in the garage, we are sorry this was not avalible during your stay. We're happy to hear you otherwise enjoyed your stay in Omori and look forward to welcoming you back again.

The property had a good flow for our group and we especially liked the large living area with the fireplace and lake views. The rooms were mostly removed enough to give some privacy as well. The facilities / amenities available were of a good quality and we enjoyed our stay. The fact the kitchen was large enough for multiple people was a bonus. Would definitely return.
