Welcome to your cozy slice of paradise with loads of character - surrounded by our organic orange and mandarin orchard.

We offer a wonderfully relaxing base for exploring the Bay of Islands and the Far North. Enjoy the atmosphere of a roaring fire. Relax on our spacious terrace while the sun is setting, swim in the pool or just sit back and watch the oranges grow.

Our friendly animals will challenge you to play with them. Feed Kiki, Emma and Brigitta, our Kunekune pigs, collect freshly laid eggs from our chickens and spoil yourself for breakfast.
Here is the place where you can truly relax!

People say the nicest things… 


“From the bright bubbly greeting to the stunningly appointed cottage, we were blown away by the level comfort. Situated in the middle of a citrus orchard the Dolittle cottage with its hardwood floors, full size fridge/freezer, 4 hob gas cooker and gas heated water. You just know you're in a good space when the coffee comes in a jar not a satchet! Highly recommended!!

“This spot couldn’t be more perfect! The cabin is well equipped and private. The animals were very enjoyable. We had fun walking the dog and feeding the pigs and chickens.Claus made sure we had a good supply of tasty oranges. We will be back!”

“We have stayed at Relax a Lodge twice.
We love staying here. Accomodation is excellent and cleaned to a high standard. Claus and works are so friendly. Sooo relaxing. Love the chickens, pigs and very friendly dogs. Our grandchildren love coming here. Would recommend staying here to all our family and friends.
Will defiantly be staying there many more times to come.”
