Banks Peninsula, New Zealand
A stunning villa perfect for large families or groups wanting complete seclusion.
In an area of outstanding beauty lies Annandale, a 4,000 acre farm escape, across which are scattered four award winning luxury villas, one of which is Scrubby Bay. With ten kilometres of coastline, Annandale boasts 500 cattle and between 7,000-14,000 sheep. The aim is to breed the finest stock for the most delicious meat and best quality wool, while providing farm-to-table cuisine.
In this amazing and isolated location, it would be easy to imagine yourself one of the early pioneers but for the modern comforts to be found in the luxurious cedar-clad beach house. A sundrenched deck, three oceanfront suites plus a bunk room (accommodation for up to fourteen), and a huge open plan dining and living space well stocked with books and games for all ages, mean there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and do their own thing, coming together as and when you choose.
Explore Annandale’s coast where wildlife is abundant and interact with acrobatic Hector's Dolphins, fur seals, blue penguins and seabird colonies.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
