Annandale, where the world can’t find you
Located on the remote Banks Peninsula, where green hills tumble down to the sparkling waters of the Pacific, Annandale is a working sheep and cattle farm surrounded by some of New Zealand’s most pristine countryside. Four architecturally striking villas – one a cosy cottage for two, another a family house with its own bay, a third an ultra-modern seaside retreat – all offer absolute privacy, stunning scenery, and the purest country air. Enchanting accommodations aside, the real luxury here is the sense of space and seclusion. Guests can walk or cycle for miles without encountering another soul, take private fishing trips or kayak tours in the company of fur seals and penguins, or lend a hand working the land.
After a day outdoors, appetites are more than satisfied with Annandale’s award-winning cuisine. Guests may choose to have meals prepared and delivered to their villa, or they may opt for a private chef, but the fresh, homegrown ingredients and creative recipes are always a highlight.
