The cottage is at 48 C lighthouse Rd, Cape Foulwind, sitting on the clifftop with a beautiful garden and views out to a rocky outcrop called the Steeples. Walks and beaches to explore with popular surf spots and spectacular scenery.

The space

Omahanui is a cliff top cottage with great ocean views, beach access and a lovely garden. It is a great place to spend time with family and friends.
The cottage is designed for a couple but there is a sofa bed in the living area if needed.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the gardens, decks and bbq area. There is a pathway down to the beach, where we swim and bodyboard.

Interaction with guests

If we are lucky enough to be there when guests are there we will happily spend time with them and tell them about the delights of the area.

Awesome location, great local pub for excellent food and atmosphere. The lighthouse walk is fabulous, worth doing the full walk to the opposing car park and back. Close enough to Westport if you need anything but wonderful West Coast stunning scenery on the door step. Loved the multiple viewing/deck options. We'll be back.

Despite a small mixup of dates, our stay was easy and comfortable. Stunning location, lovely gardens, and a warm, comfortable, modern cottage.

It's always a pleasure to find an interesting, refined, well thought out place to stay when traveling. They come as a surprise because not just anyone can make a little house great. It had style and charm, a great bathroom and kitchen. The bed was perfect. The hosts had thought of other details that showed caring attentiveness. The location and grounds were wonderfully beautiful. The view was totally picturesque. We took the path down to the sea in front of the house. It, too, was exquisite and wild and empty. We give the whole experience our best recommendation.

Stunning home and garden on the edge of a cliff overlooking The Steeples. All modern amenities and everything is first class. We could have stayed forever. Don't pass up the chance to stay here if you're in the area. Paul is a wonderful host and we enjoyed chatting with him.

Tika and Paul's place was easily one of the best AirBnBs that we stayed at in all of New Zealand! Everything was absolutely gorgeous! We were there for 2 days and ended up not leaving the property at all! We look forward to our next stay!
