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.

  • Our stay at the Cabbage Tree cottage was tranquil and lovely

    Our stay at the Cabbage Tree cottage was tranquil and lovely. The upstairs living and kitchen was perfect for relaxing and preparing our meals. We very much appreciated the personal touch of the carved handles and curtain rails. On our last evening we had a beautiful sunset, but secretly we were hoping to be flooded in just so we could stay for longer.

  • Such a fantastic and relaxing place to stay

    Such a fantastic and relaxing place to stay. You can see the waves from the balcony and hear them crashing at night. My wife and I will definitely return when we next need to get away from city life.
