Sacred Earth Retreat

The Lodge

Perched on the edge of the land, overlooking the expanse of the ocean and the lush coastal rain forest, Sacred Earth Lodge is a place where you can begin to let go of the stresses of life and find another way of being. Wild and free—with wind, sun, and sky as your companions—Sacred Earth Lodge will open you to the vision of nature at its finest.

Sunny and secluded at the end of a private road, this house is a perfect getaway for locals or travelers alike. Experience the uniqueness of New Zealand's environment—beaches, forests, streams, waterfalls, rock pools—with gorgeous ocean sunsets.

The Lodge includes a master bedroom and a queen bedroom in the main house, plus 3 extra rooms separate from the main house. The standard rate is for up to 4 people (within the main house). Extra people are charged per person/per night. The number of people is limited.
