1. The Homestead- A Private Sanctuary. Built in the 1880s, The Annandale homestead has been lovingly restored to create a luxurious five-bedroom home in a private and tranquil setting.

3. Seascape- Romantic Luxury in a bay of your own. Seascape is a sparkling jewel in Annandale's crown: a picturesque private bay, above which an ultra-modern retreat provides a truly romantic experience for two persons.

How to get there
Christchurch International Airport is just over an hourâs drive from Annandale.

The homestead is located at the entrance to the property, while the other villas are 30-40 minutes drive away.
When to go
The weather tends to be pretty unpredictable. That said, it means that you can go at any time of year and still get glorious days. At the bottom of the world (or top, depending on how you look at it!) the seasons are opposite to the Northern Hemisphereâs and most people who visit New Zealand choose to go during their summer season, which is December through February.
The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel.
Travelling with children
Children of all ages are welcome at Annandale and thereâs plenty for them to do, from quad biking to watersports.
