This is a genuine waterfront bach with its own private beach and jetty in Dryden Bay, towards the outer Queen Charlotte Sounds near to the entrance to Endeavour Inlet. It is an ideal environment to wind-down and relax, not to be bothered by the typical distractions in an urban environment. It features glow worms, wekas, and good fishing.
It is in a remote area, only accessible by boat. The bach operates as a self-sufficient unit; and eco-bach. It has a composting toilet; gas lights, gas fridge and gas hot water; small solar panel and batteries; wood burner and BBQ for cooking; a back-up generator if electricity is needed. There are no metropolitan services; it is off the electricity grid, town water supply, and telephone network.
There is a 44 metre jetty, two moorings (2 and 3 tonne moorings), and dinghy/kayak and life jackets available for your use.
There is plenty to do, from having a BBQ, laying in the sun, swimming, boating and fishing,or tramping.
This is boat access only. The Cougar or Endeavour Express, who go by twice daily, can drop you directly at the bach. Or you can use your own boat to get there.
We expect visitors to clean and leave the bach as they have found it, however, optional cleaning is available at a charge at certain times of the year. Please check with the owner for availability if you are interersted in this option.
