Die Unterkunft
A DAY AT ST. OMER’S
When you wake up on Day One, take a moment to take in the silence. St. Omer Hideout’s remote location is blessed with a deep, natural quiet. Every once in a while—maybe 10 or 15 times a day—you’ll hear a car winding its way down Kenepuru Road, but it’s a distant sound.

(Though it's remote, St. Omer’s Hideout is not a place for loud music or parties. Sound does travel here and we want to preserve the quiet and be good neighbors.)

Two of the bedrooms—one with a queen-size bed and one with a full— present show-stopping views of St. Omer Bay and Kenepuru Sound and balcony access. The third bedroom is kid-friendly with bunk beds and no balcony or water view.

The shared bath, in typical New Zealand style, features a toilet (water closet) in one room and a sink and shower in a separate room. 

Photos get you part of the way to understanding how dazzling the view is, but seeing it in person is a whole other story. Spend a few hours on the wraparound deck with a glass of local wine, blue skies above and jewel-tone water below, and you’ll be made new.  

Open the retractable patio doors in the living area and let in the fresh morning breeze. Brew a French press coffee and cook up some local eggs in the modern kitchen.

Side note: There are no stores or fuel stations in Kenepuru Sound, so you’ll want to stock up on groceries before you get here (or have them delivered). We provide some dry goods including paper towels and toilet tissue, but you may wish to bring some with you just in case. We will provide info as to how to order groceries online and have them delivered.

Despite the home's remote location, there is a surprising number of things to do nearby. Sightseeing by water taxi. Mussel farm tours. Exploratory trips on the Mailboat. Sailing charters. Kayaking, fishing, biking (and many other verbs). Hiking the Queen Charlotte Track. Golf at Nopera. Scenic flights via Pelorus Air.

Try to make it back in time for sunset on the balcony. But if you miss it, don't worry—the sunrises are equally awe-inspiring and will be waiting for you in the morning. 

Zugang für Gäste
Entire home and grounds. There is one bathroom in the home, or rather two rooms - one with a toilet and a separate one for the sink and shower. These are not shared with anyone other than you and your guests.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
Please INQUIRE first, rather than a request to book. Sometimes it takes more than 24 hours to confirm the availability of a cleaner.

St Omer Hide Away is off-the-grid, relying on a small, generator-based system that also includes solar panels and batteries for continuous power. Because the system is small, it is best if you can be gentle on the consumption. Lights, the refrigerator, and electronic device charging constitute minimal power load and should be available to you without incident.

The bathroom heater, microwave, oven and electric tea kettle place a much higher load on the system and should be used independently if possible. This means if you have multiple people in the home who are showering and using the bathroom heater, and also using hair dryers, while at the same time someone else is using the oven or microwave, you could put a strain on the system. There is more likely to be an issue at night or on a very cloudy day when the batteries and generator would be supplying all the power. Since the system was completed in February there has been only one incident.

No shops or fuel stations in the Kenepuru Sound.

There is no trash service, so it is critical that you take your trash with you when you leave. There are several pay trash stations along the route back to Havelock.

Groceries may be delivered by mailboat from Blenheim with prior arrangements.

Steep driveway – 4WD necessary if you’re driving and want to park at the landing outside the house. (You can park down the hill at the property entrance.) Note if you do not have 4WD and therefore cannot drive up, you will have to walk up. The drive is gravel and not suitable for walker-type equipment.

You can arrive via your own boat but we do not have a mooring. You can also arrive via water taxi from either Havelock or Te Maria and they will drop you at the St Omer jetty which is a 5-10 minute walk from our entrance.)
Off-the-grid private home with beautiful views of St Omer Bay. Accessible by car from Havelock (2 hrs) , by boat/water taxi from Havelock (25 mins) or Te Mahia or by plane from Nelson or Wellington.

I'm from Michigan, but I’ve lived in Texas and Arizona most of my adult life. My interests are photography, travel, food, historical fiction. What do I do in my spare time? I don't understand the question!? Fun fact about me. We foster kittens until they’re ready for adoption. Our first batch was a mom with 7 kittens. And we utterly failed as fosters! We adopted 2 of the 7! Some of my favorite things are: Bright colors (not to be confused with shiny, pretty things), chocolate, humor, great lines, magic moments, a beautiful beach, wide-open spaces, aerial views, Flat Whites, Meet Joe Black, Outlander series, U2, Yanni, Enigma, A Tuna Christmas, Houzz, New Zealand, Florida Gulf Coast, old European cities, photography, fields of bluebonnets, Pinterest. My full-time job is overseeing the investments and financial operations at a 48-year old family foundation based in Austin. The foundation seeks innovative projects in the area of health, education, human services and community affairs. What is it like to have me as a host? We are prepared and want our guests to be prepared as well. Once we send arrival details guests rarely have questions, but we’re here if you need us. We have a message tree set up so that requests go to 3 phone numbers to make sure we can respond as quickly as possible to a guest’s need. We also use an app that guests can access from their phone or computer to get info about the area and the home during their stay. We try to think of everything and have our homes set up for travelers. What am I like as a traveler? I like to be on my own and don’t require much interaction although I’d be happy to meet our hosts. Do I have a life motto? I’m a big fan of big-picture dreams but not being married to them. Things change, people change and sometimes you just need to go in a different direction. I plan when necessary but I don’t plan everything. I’m fairly prepared most of the time – I’m always looking for another way if the first way doesn’t work out. I almost always have a “plan B” in my back pocket. We take a team approach to managing and caring for our homes. We’ve had relationships with many of our service providers/team members for YEARS. They know we don’t want our guests going without air-conditioning on the 4th of July. They know we want yards mowed on schedule. They know we want our homes clean. We know you want more than a couple of forks and some plastic glasses in the kitchen! We know you want clean, fresh linens and household equipment that works.
