Annandale, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand
Just over an hour’s drive or a 15-minute helicopter flight from Christchurch, this working coastal farm takes luxury to a new level. Set in 4000 acres between rolling hills and the Pacific Ocean, each of the four indulgent villas offers a very private, very remote and totally unique experience.
Annandale, Banks Peninsula
Seascape is a glass-panelled contemporary hideaway for two overlooking a private bay; magnificent Scrubby Bay is a luxurious 4-bedroom cedar-clad beach house with impressive ocean views; perfect for two, Shepherd’s Cottage blends history, romance and seclusion with modern day luxury; and the Homestead is the grand dame of Annandale, a lovingly restored 5-bedroom home built in the 1880s.
Choose to self-cater or opt to have a private chef create world-class cuisine in the privacy of your chosen retreat, or combine both catering options for a stay that suits you.
On site activities include watching sheepdogs at work, touring the farm, hiking, biking, kayaking or joining a cookery class, and the delightful harbour town of Akaroa is just a short drive away. Explore Pigeon Bay and beyond in Annandale’s powerboat. Cruise along the spectacular Banks Peninsula coastline and spot dolphins, fur seals and native birds.
