Annie’s Loft is an idyllic retreat offering guests a private, luxury, one-bedroom apartment with a separate entrance, upstairs at Waipara River Estate.

Annie’s Loft is wonderful for a couple for that special romantic get-away, for a honeymoon or just exploring the Waipara vineyards.

Don’t forget to try our Waipara River Estate wines —single vineyard releases, superb medium dry award winning Rieslings plus a Late Harvest dessert variety; Gewurztraminer;  excellent European style Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Cabernet/Merlot as well as  Cabernet Sauvignon which are available online — 6 & 12 bottle cases and mixed cases.

The apartment has 4 rooms — a king sized bedroom; bathroom with large shower and under-tile heating; a separate kitchenette with tea & coffee making facilities and fridge freezer for your food & wine.

The living area with large sofa & dining table, opens onto a sunny upstairs deck with wonderful panoramic views across the vineyards to Mt Cass. The sofa bed in the lounge can accommodate one child or teenager overnight (at extra charge), but please ask us in advance via email so we can provide bedding.

A complimentary portacot is available on request.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the surroundings of the property and wander down to the Weka River if they wish.

We provide a continental breakfast, with local and homemade produce.

Ask us about recreational equipment: bikes (& helmets) to maybe venture on the Hurunui Wine Cycle Trail, tennis racquets, and even some  golf clubs for a round at Amberley Beach Golf links.

Please email us if you have any dietary requests so we can attend to your needs.

We are a smoke free environment and do not allow pets.
