Your Hosts

Greetings! from your friendly hosts at Omau Settlers Lodge.

In 2016, we decided to embark on a complete change of direction, career and a new adventure. As a result we packed our bags and sold our Hamilton (North Island) home, to purchase the endearing boutique Omau Settlers Lodge Motel, which is located just 10 minutes from Westport, South Island.

It’s a privilege to call this stunning region our new home and every day we get to meet interesting and diverse people from all walks of life who have stayed here at the lodge.

We hope you choose accommodation at Omau Settlers Lodge for next trip to the area and we look forward to sharing the untamed natural wilderness of Cape Foulwind, West Coast with you.

Warmest regards,
Karen & Lee Forsman
