Gentle Annie Seaside Accommodation and Camping Ground


Aotearoa as it used to be –  lush, unspoiled and natural. Half an hour north of Westport on the doorstep of the Kahurangi National Park, Gentle-Annie is a coastal enclave with its own warm frost free microclimate. Bounded by the Tasman Sea, the mighty Mokihinui River and Nikau-fringed native bush, it is an excellent place to set up base and be rejuvenated and recharged.

We have 4 private, self-contained holiday homes, a backpacker style lodge, and a camping ground, all a stones throw from the ocean or river, with beautiful views of this stunning area.

Gentle Annie is 15 minutes from the world class Old Ghost Road mountain biking and walking track and within an hour of many scenic attractions of the Northern Buller Region –  north to Kahurangi National Park, Heaphy Track, Oparara Valley with it’s Limestone Arches and Honeycomb Caves; and south to Charming Creek Walkway, Denniston Plateau, Cape Foulwind Seal Colony and Punakaiki Pancake Rocks. The region maintains much of its eccentricity and wilderness, offering an opportunity to get close to nature. If you’re a moutain biker, botanist, geologist, artist, beachcomber, fisherman, kayaker, cyclist, tramper and/or adventurer at heart, Gentle-Annie is a natural destination for you.
