— How would you describe Annandale in a nutshell?
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.
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.
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.
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.”
— Annandale Scrubby Bay
— And finally, Scrubby Bay.
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.”
