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.Jesse and Jessica Paley-AtkinsAddress: Gentle Annie, 298 De Malmanches Road, Mokihinui, Westport 7891Phone: 03 782 1826 or 027 418 8587Email: email@example.comWebsite: www.gentleannie.co.nz

Ghost Lodge is your ultimate Northern West Coast base regardless of time of year.
Ghost Lodge was originally built in the 1880’s as a butchers. Immense thought and care has been taken during its rebuild to retain its original charm with recycled native New Zealand timbers being used throughout. Lovingly renovated and restored, it’s fully insulated and carpeted throughout with a log burner to keep you cozy and warm during winter, and french doors that open out to stunning outdoor areas, allowing for plenty of fresh air flow to keep you cool and comfortable during summer.
The lodge is perfect for large groups, cyclists, motorcyclists on tour, families as well as individual travelers.
Ghost Lodge offers off street parking for cars, boats and bikes. It has beach access and free use of wetsuits, boogie boards and surf boards, so you can enjoy the beach – literally at the bottom of the garden. And if you’ve just ridden the Old Ghost Road (or the Heaphy Track) there are hoses for washing down your bike and plenty of space to park them. Take a break for a day or two (recover from those saddle sores) and relax at Ghost Lodge before your next adventure.
