Located on a 4,000-acre Annandale farm site, the Scrubby Bay House was designed to look like “a piece of slowly aging farm driftwood” with a timber facade that develops a rich patina over time. Despite its rustic appearance, the beach house boasts a luxurious interior with bespoke furniture, glass, and stone. Large openings frame views of the sea and bring sounds of the waves and cooling winds indoors.

The rate at Scrubby Bay starts at $4595 NZD a night in the off-season.
