Gentle Annie Seaside Accommodation and Camping Ground, Mokihinui, West Coast, New Zealand

Mokihinui, West Coast, New Zealand

Aotearoa as it used to be – lush, unspoilt and natural. 50 kilometres 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.

Gentle Annie is only 10km 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, the Heaphy Track, and the Oparara Valley with it’s Limestone Arches and Honeycomb Caves; and south to Charming Creek Walkway, Denniston Plateau, Cape Foulwind Seal Colony and the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks.

The region maintains much of its eccentricity and wilderness, offering an opportunity to get close to nature. If you’re a mountain biker, botanist, geologist, artist, beachcomber, fisherman, kayaker, cyclist, tramper and/or adventurer at heart, Gentle Annie is a natural destination for you.

From the beautiful surroundings, abundant birdlife and gentle roar of the ocean to the organic coffee, quirky Cafe and fantastic hot showers! What more can I say, just go! You will be as enchanted by the spell of this magical place for sure. I will be back! – Clare Morris, Facebook

“All I can say is just GO THERE! This spot is heaven and so well maintained and just special. 12 out of 10 from me. Don’t just wait for summer either, this is a special winter spot with fire pits, hot tubs, and the rest is up to you to find out when you visit.”
