Your stay is in a newly eco built studio/lodge with full faciities . As it is a retreat we have no TV although WiFi is available. The lodge has EMF protection. Out front beautiful wild beaches with caves and wildlife are accessed. Fresh seafood is plentiful.
We have much to experience with great walks, eatouts & beaches.
We wish to offer people a place to stay which is both healthy relaxing and invigorating. The studio has been built using all natural materials. 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 30 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.
