More about Annandale...


Four private and secluded villas each have their own distinct character: the romance and contemporary architecture of Seascape in its own bay, the historic hilltop charm of Shepherd’s Cottage, and the stunning seaside location of Scrubby Bay, a large cedar-clad beach house and a restored five-bedroom homestead with magnificent gardens, infinity pool, spa pool and tennis court. Which one will you choose?


Working closely with their gardeners and farm management, the chef team ensures they offer the freshest ingredients, sourced straight from the extensive gardens, orchard and farm. Our cuisine will be an experience to savour with whichever dining option you choose – from cuisine created and delivered directly to your villa for enjoyment at your leisure to a private chef dinner.


Whilst these villas offer every luxury and comfort on the inside, it is what’s on the outside that really sets Annandale apart. The turquoise waters are perfect for kayaking and nature cruises potentially seeing the famed Hector’s dolphins. You can also refine your culinary skills in a private cooking class, enjoy a spa in your own villa, and simply hike or bike across the spectacular farm.
