Cradled between the rolling hills of the Banks Peninsula and facing the calm turquoise sea, Scrubby Bay is a truly luxurious seaside retreat for up to 14 guests. Remote, magical, and completely private, this cedar-clad luxury beach house offers three sumptuous bedroom suites and a bunk room that sleeps eight, making it ideal for families and groups. 

Located on the outer reaches of an expansive 4,000 acre working farm, Scrubby Bay is a stunning escape located just an hour from Christchurch. It can be reached via a helicopter flight through scenic countryside, or a 40-minute 4WD transfer through cliff-top farm tracks. Rest assured that the remote location is well worth the journey.

Here, it is easy to imagine what the edge of the world looks like, with rugged coastal clifftops that give way to a vast expanse of dazzling sea, with no other sign of civilisation except those that live in the ocean. Though remote, Scrubby Bay is fitted with all of the modern comforts and conveniences you need to remain in a constant state of bliss and relaxation. 

The huge living area features a fireplace and floor to ceiling glass doors that slide all the way open, extending the indoor space to the outside, for spectacular unobstructed views of the sea. There is a large comfy sectional couch that sits in the middle of the room and the fully equipped chef’s kitchen right behind it. 

While the entire family can gather together at the generous living and dining areas, Scrubby Bay offers plenty of space for everyone to go off and do their own thing. There is the sun-drenched deck where you can enjoy the breeze while reading a book from the library. There is also the heated swimming pool, or the outdoor spa where you can savour the gorgeous sea views.

And of course, then there are the bedrooms. Three of which are master suites with ensuite bathrooms that feature a beautiful bath tub that looks out to the ocean. Meanwhile, the bunk room features four comfy bunk beds and its own ensuite bathroom.

Scrubby Bay is part of a collection of luxury villas by Annandale, a working coastal farm on the Banks Peninsula near Christchurch. Each of the accommodations, including Scrubby Bay, Seascape, The Homestead & Shepherd's Cottage can be booked separately, or together for a wedding, event or special occasion. The team at Annandale can organise a host of activities including tours, cruises, spa treatments, art classes or private cooking lessons from their on-site chef.
