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 belush, 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 Islands 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.

Wild West Coast Getaway
Cool private remote location with the constant low roar of the waves..Recommended ! Great stones on the beach . Cowshed cafe over at the camping ground 1k down the road is very cute. Note Charming Creek Walkway is closed at its most impressive end due to a large rockslide..see DOC website. (As per previous reviews the bathroom door needs fixing . Note the TV is very small and freeview only and signal is lost in bad weather. But most people are not there for the TV of course!)

Beautiful Ti Kouka cottage
This property is AMAZING, the photos don't do it justice. Super clean, comfortable, warm and cozy. Really good layout. Loved the location, loads to explore, the beach, maze lookout and the hidden beach beyond... absolute paradise! Perfect end to our trek across the Heaphy. Will definately be recommending to friends and whanau and would love to come stay again. Thank you!

Utter Bliss
Everything I was hoping it would be. Fantastic location with bush in the back and beach at the front, fantastic views, total privacy. The bach is gorgeous, clean and comfortable and is very well equipped. I was able to bring my dog who also loved the beach. Will definitely stay again.
