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.

Special conditions: Not suitable for children. No smoking in the studio or on the decking.

    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!

    Very comfortable, clean, modern and spacious property set in a quiet location. Easy and fast drive into Wesport. The property is within a very short drive of the East side of the Cape Foulwind Track, which is a wonderful walk and can easily be walked both ways back to the starting point. Excellent parking facility with toilets provided by DOC. From the same car park, there is good access to the beach.
