Our one-thousand acre property is set in surroundings where Aotearoa is as it used to be—lush, unspoiled and natural. A slice of paradise. Gentle Annie is an ideal place to get off the beaten track to experience New Zealand's untamed wilderness and truly appreciate the South Island’s West Coast. Bounded by the Tasman Sea, the mighty Mokihinui River and beautiful ancient bush, our seaside accommodation is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy time away from the busy life and provides a great base to explore our stunning region.

Centrally located in the Northern West Coast, Gentle Annie is near places of interest where day trips will get you north to the magnificent Oparara Limestone Arches, the Kahurangi National Park, the Heaphy Track and south to the Chasm Creek and Charming Creek Walkways, Punakaiki Pancake Rocks, the Denniston Plateau and the Cape Foulwind Seal Colony. We are on the doorstep of the new Old Ghost Road mountain-biking track!

In any season, enjoy time at Gentle Annie. It will nourish your soul and awaken your senses.

    Great location, beautiful views and great for those wanting accommodation at the end of The Old Ghost Road (near the beach). We would come back for sure. Recommendations for managers would be to check that everything works prior to a booking arrival, TV, BBQ gas bottle, lights. Had no affect on our stay though but it is an expectation when paying for accom. Old Ghost Road an incredible ride!! Not for the faint hearted though!

    We loved the wild west coast stunning views and for the first time in years an open fire, the Gentle-Annie area is wonderful plenty to do and see. The West Coast has some marvellous history as well, an added bonus.
