Seascape, Annandale

South Island escape: Annandale

6 July 2016

Not only did the location make a stunning setting for our luxe ‘Escape Artists’ cover and fashion shoot in the new issue of FQ Life, but if a weekend getaway is on the cards, Annandale – winner of the 2015 World’s Leading Experiential Luxury Property Award at the World Travel Awards – is the ultimate indulgence.

On Banks Peninsula, just over an hour’s drive (or 15 minutes by helicopter) from Christchurch Airport, Annandale properties whisk you far, far away from the everyday. There are four unique accommodation options – with something for die-hard romantics through to larger groups seeking an exclusive getaway.

The five-bedroom Homestead, which was built in the 1880s and lovingly restored with every contemporary convenience, caters for 12 people. Its generous grounds include a spa pool and heated swimming pool, tennis court, gym, extensive gardens and a private helipad.

There’s the charming and intimate Shepherd’s Cottage, which allows you to indulge in the simpler things in life. It’s perfect for two and boasts views of the Pacific Ocean, as well as the snowy peaks of the Kaikoura Ranges.

Located on the shore of its own private beach, Scrubby Bay is suitable for up to 14 guests and has a well-equipped kitchen, swimming pool and spa.

Then there’s Seascape – the location for our shoot. The architecturally designed, award-winning retreat offers a uniquely modern and utterly romantic experience. Wake up in solitude, surrounded by the sparkling ocean (frequented by dolphins and seals) and rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
