Nellie Tier X Annandale Luxury Villa Accommodation Christchurch

Shiny little star on its own secluded coastline

This remote, half-moon bay is sometimes battered by storms, but shelter can be found at the latest addition to the 4,000-acre Annandale farm (there is also the restored five-bedroom homestead and two other villas for rent) near Christchurch. It has three minimally furnished bedrooms, bathrooms with New Zealand-made Nellie Tier skincare products and an eight-berth room of bunkbeds.

Borrow chef Paul Jobin from the homestead (who has worked with New Zealand-born, London-based Peter Gordon) and he will prepare slow-cooked lamb shoulder and beef cheek with potato gnocchi and local Motukarara asparagus in the kitchen and butlers' pantry; if you'd rather fend for yourself, meals can be brought to the villa for you to heat up. Sit by the fire with a book or board game in the open-plan dining and living area, or slide open doors that lead to a wide wooden deck. Once outside, you can swim laps in the heated 25-metre pool or soak in the bubbling hot tub to the sound of the ocean crashing out front.
