Annandale Scrubby Bay - Annandale, in South Island, New Zealand
— Mark: “Guests love the privacy and outstanding natural beauty, as well as the authentic farm experience giving them a taste of the real New Zealand.”
Interview By:

— How would you describe Annandale in a nutshell?

Mark: “Annandale is a coastal farm escape. Settled over a century ago, Annandale remains a working sheep and cattle farm in a stunning setting– right on the coast of the Banks Peninsula. In many ways, it is an escape to the authentic New Zealand farmlife, with the addition of all the modern amenities and luxuries you would desire.

Annandale offers four private, luxury holiday villas with Kiwi-style informality. These villas are spread throughout the 4,000 acre farmland, including an ultra-modern romantic escape for couples in a private bay and a fully restored 19th century Homestead surrounded by gardens.”

— Please tell us a bit more about the Homestead and the 3 other villas.

Mark: “The centrepiece of this historic farm is the restored 5-bedroom Annandale Homestead overlooking the ocean and surrounded by magnificent gardens, a restored fernery, infinity pool, spa pool and tennis court.

The Annandale Homestead has been meticulously restored, providing every modern amenity for guests while they enjoy an atmosphere that is remarkably reminiscent of gracious, bygone days.

The Homestead offers four master bedrooms and a separate bunkroom. All boast individual bathrooms along with individual views of the garden, Pigeon Bay and Annandale farm.”

— Please tell us about Shepherd’s Cottage please.

Mark: “Authentic, rustic and thoroughly charming, the historic Shepherd’s Cottage provides an inspiring rural retreat for two with uninterrupted views of the vast farmland and the sparkling ocean in the distance. Sit on the porch of Shepherds Cottage, and an uninterrupted vista unfolds.

By day, the occasional bleating of sheep and the wooden stockyard fences across the paddock remind guests that this was a genuine working shepherd’s cottage, built and used by the Annandale shepherds for over a hundred years. At night, nothing but bird song and the brightest of stars.”

— On to Seascape.

Mark: “Seascape is the sparkling jewel in Annandale’s crown set within a picturesque private bay, above which an ultra-modern retreat provides a truly romantic experience for couples.

Lounge in a bath overlooking the ocean, or in your hot pool on the balcony with your outdoor fireplace. The ever-changing ocean rifts through rounded rocks and pebbles on the shoreline and the sun ignites a thousand lights across the water. Seclusion at its very best.”

— And finally, Scrubby Bay.

Mark: “Situated in another private bay, this luxurious cedar-clad beach house makes a magical and completely private setting for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of family and friendship featuring its own private heated lap pool and jacuzzi.

With the ocean tumbling onto the shoreline just meters from the deck and seagulls wheeling above the rocky cliffs, guests might well imagine days gone by when sailing ships and whaling boats would sail past their private bay.

The finest in contemporary amenities and architectural design make Scrubby Bay the ultimate getaway for up to three families.”

— Please tell us a but about the facilities and services you offer to your guests.

Mark: “Different than most lodges in New Zealand, Annandale is a villa collection so you have the privacy of your own villa. All dining is done within your villa.These meals can be served by our chef or simply left in your villa with final instructions to be eaten at your leisure.

We offer activities ranging from farm tours, mountain biking and hiking, nature cruises on our boat to see Hectors dolphins, to cooking classes and spa services.

The feedback from guests is incredibly positive, with most guests wanting to stay longer – they love the privacy and outstanding natural beauty, as well as the authentic farm experience giving them a taste of the real New Zealand and the delicious farm-to-table cuisine.”
