A two storey 'woodsy' beachfront home on an elevated site from which views of the Coast, Nikau and Rata forest can be enjoyed in the open plan living/kitchen area. The balcony puts you right amongst the natural scenery as does the courtyard with its open fire place for outdoor leisure.

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 Seddonville!

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

  • We had a great time staying there

    We had a great time staying there. It was clean and tidy with everything one would want in a place to stay. The location was ideal - within a minute's walk to the beach. The gas heating and cooking made a real difference, the place was warm throughout our stay. We managed to catch a Kahawhai at the river mouth within 15mins of arriving - that was the perfect start to our break. We will definitely stay again.

  • Great house in a beautiful location

    Great house in a beautiful location. Had everything we needed and we loved the view from the living room. We enjoyed the warm gas fire that kept the living space cosy and warm. Bit cold downstairs for a winter trip but beds were warm and comfy. Definitely a great summer house and the mosquito nets on all the windows were a blessing. Will definitely return, next time in summer hopefully so we can use the outdoor space and the bbq and sit on the deck to enjoy the view :)
