Banks Peninsula, New Zealand
A grand New Zealand homestead, perfect for those wanting an authentic New Zealand farming experience.
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 The Homestead. 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.
Discover the magic of a bygone era. Built in the 1880s, The Annandale homestead has been lovingly restored to create a luxurious five bedroom villa (plus a bunk room), in a private and tranquil setting. Comfortable rooms, shaded verandas, vast gardens and exclusive use of the modern pool and gym addition make the house a great place for relaxation and exploration.
Explore Annandale’s coast where wildlife is abundant: encounter acrobatic Hector's Dolphins, fur seals, blue penguins and seabird colonies.

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.
