This property and owners are gems. Beautiful details. Very eco-consious, if that is a word. The owners are very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay. Wish it was longer.
Can’t wait to return- we loved the decor, comfy bed and proximity to the beach.
What a hidden gem Cape Foulwind is, and this property perfectly captures its laid back beauty. Dianna and Bob have done a stellar job at creating a retreat feel to the property- my husband and I just wished we could stay longer.
Thank you so much for your great review. It was lovely to meet you both and I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for leaving our wee place in pristine condition. It was a pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you both again. Happy travels.
Quaint, a big space, lovely hosts and great pub 100m away.

What a location this eco studio is in!
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.
The property is on a beautiful coastal location, on the bluffs overlooking Cape Foulwind.
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!
