Guest reviews for Onepoto Bay LakehouseWe encourage reviews. Our review policy.
TonyStayed April 2022
Great location, big house for large families, but the house was pretty dirty on arrival. The house is pretty tired but comfortable. Views second to none, would definitely consider going back
TashaStayed March 2022
The view is breathtaking and the easy access to the lake is incredible. The kids had a ball at the private beach and especially in the kayaks. Maintenance was lacking at the batch, the dishwasher was broken and the top toilet would not flush properly. There was also a sewage smell coming from the top bathroom that wasn’t pleasant.
Thank you for your review, Tasha! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the amazing view at Onepoto Bay Lodge. Thank you for your feedback on the maintenance that is required. We're discussing this with the property owners and working hard on improvements to ensure it continues to offer an amazing experience to our guests.
LeonStayed February 2022
Beautiful location, all you need for a large family group to enjoy. Property could use a bit of upgrading but still a great stay.
MelanieStayed January 2022
Great loaction, amazing actually. But property wasn't that clean and the decor was a little tired.
Thank you for your review, Melanie! We're glad to hear you enjoyed this holiday home's location and sorry that you weren't entirely satisfied with the cleaning and the decoration. We've addressed the cleaning with our local team and will be discussing possible upgrades with the property owners. We hope to see you again in the future so that you can enjoy Onepoto Bay Lodge at its best!

Great property! Great jetty and enjoyed our stay! We looked forward to coming back in summer!
PaulStayed May 2021
This property was a perfect location for our family getaway. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Right in the lakes edge with amazing views. We tied up our boat at the private jetty & explored everything Rotoiti has to offer. Highly recommended.. we will be back
RonStayed February 2021
Perfect location with a boat friendly jetty for accessing the lake. A very grumpy neighbour and the bach is getting a little tired and in need of some additional upkeep. Probably a bit overpriced based of the tired nature of the bach (home)
VickiStayed January 2021
The perfect lakeside getaway! We can’t wait to return.
JasonStayed December 2020
Great quite secluded house in the bush a lot of native birds awesome spot. We had a boat so it was so perfect for access to lake for swimming and boating deffinately recommend this house House is a little tired but apart from that would love to visit again
MURRAYStayed October 2020
Superb location right on the water, with amazing sunrises and views. Well set up for 6 adults, plenty of room and handy having two bathrooms. Upstairs open plan area really works well with large groups and having own jetty at lakes edge worked well as we had two boats, easily launched from public boat ramp 10 minutes away. Looking forward to returning.
TaniaStayed June 2020
Even though we had booked the bach and it was terrible weather, it was still so beautiful and serene. 100 million dollar views, and sits right on the lake. The day we were leaving, the sunrise was just stunning over the calm waters. Liz who is the house manager was always very helpful with emails and easy to get a hold of aswell, and super down to earth and easy to talk too. Will be staying again at this bach again in the near future. Thank you for letting us stay at the beautiful bach
