We wish to offer people a place to stay which is both healthy relaxing and invigorating. The studio lodge is situated at 'The old Nuns retreat" at Omau on Cape Foulwind. The owners reside in the old house beside the lodge where they have lived for 35 years. The retreat lodge itself is comfortable and relaxing and has everything we believe you need to chill out and relax during your stay..

A short walk through our garden and out front you can wander down the cliff track to the beach accessing other beaches at low tide by walking through the caves. The seal colony is within walking distance with other small wild bays to explore. Certain spots are safe for swimming. Just ask.

Being a surfing and seafaring family throughout our lives my wife and I have always been involved around the sea in our work and our play. We can offer surfing guidance of the local breaks.

All natural materials are used in the building of the studio. EMF protected.

Fresh seafood abounds( kai moana)

There is a local pub/restaurant within walking distance.

We love sharing our place with visitors from different places and we wish your stay to be as fruitful or just relaxing as you want it to be.

    What a location this eco studio is in! A wee walk to the coast, a wee walk to the friendly local pub :-) It definitely is worth the drive out to Cape Foulwind if you are staying around the Westport area.

  • Omau Retreat is in a perfect location

    Omau Retreat is in a perfect location. A real quiet, relaxing and peaceful setting, right on the bluffs overlooking the Tasman Sea, The Steeples and Cape Foulwind. The retreat was very clean, offered everything we could possibly need. Very nice amenities and artistic interior. We wish our travels would have allowed us a longer stay.

    The property is on a beautiful coastal location, on the bluffs overlooking Cape Foulwind. From the bluffs, you can easily see The Steeples Rock formation off shore. The Retreat Cottage is well appointed and nicely done. All the amenities one could ask for. Loved the wood flooring with the greenstone inlays. It was wonderful to go to bed hearing the rhythm of the Tasman Sea! We had a very relaxing stay at this special place! Thank you Dianna!
