Let this historic and fabulous farm welcome you with 21st century luxe set amid a thousand-year-old landscape.
Stay-cate in one of the chic villas or hunker down in the converted farm home from the 1880's - all can be rented separately or together for the ultimate in "to-do" takeovers. We'd revel in each one of these residences, but the crown jewel of the collection is truly Seascape, an ultra-modern retreat set on a black-pebbled beach.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Sample rural New Zealand at its best: off the tourist trail and in one of the world’s most spectacular coastal locations lies Annandale, a 4000-acre sheep and cattle farm that offers exclusive use of four distinctive luxury villas with relaxed Kiwi-style informality. We offer guests an opportunity to relax in total privacy and make the experience their own - explore the spectacular farm with its 10 kilometres of coastline and connect with the surroundings, share precious time with friends and family, and indulge in the finest local produce.
Design:
Set amid a rugged landscape of hills and bays on Banks Peninsula, only an hour’s drive from the city of Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island, the historic farm features a restored five-bedroom homestead with magnificent gardens and state-of-the-art recreation facilities, including infinity pool, spa pool and tennis court. The three other private and secluded villas each have their own distinct character: the romance and contemporary architecture of Seascape in its own bay, the historic hilltop charm of Shepherd’s Cottage, and the stunning seaside location of Scrubby Bay, a large cedar-clad beach house for gatherings of up to 14 people.
Standout Venue Features:
While we offer every luxury and comfort on the inside, it is what’s on the outside that really sets Annandale apart. Guests can experience a 4WD farm tour, mountain biking, hiking, or perhaps even sheep and cattle mustering. The turquoise waters surrounding the property are perfect for water activities, including guided kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing and fishing charters. Or take a nature cruise and see native wildlife, including famed Hectors dolphins, the rarest and smallest dolphin in the world. There are on-site farm-to-table style cooking lessons to sharpen your culinary skills, or you can fly over the area by helicopter for a bird’s eye view of the incredible landscape.
