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 stunning views, 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 fridge and gas hot water, solar panels and batteries; wood burner and BBQ for cooking; wood fired spa, 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 a 13 foot aluminiium boat, kayak and life jackets available for your use.

There is plenty to do, from having a BBQ, laying in the sun, swimming, boating, fishing, and tramping.

This is boat access only. The Cougar Line water taxi who go by three times 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 for the next guests. There are no cleaning services due to the bach's remote location.

 The pictures on the website don't do this place justice. It is soooo peaceful and relaxing. The clear clear waters, perfect for snorkelling etc. The bath, really good, and stays warm for next day also! The bach, warm and accommodating. Has pretty much all u need, we even found the table tennis table and set up for a few games. So good not having a lot of other baches within coo-eee. We took a charter boat up there, and the moorings and dinghys there were perfect, and easy to sort out. 

 Great hot tub. Beautiful and private spot

 Yery special place, we spend a wonderful week for christmas . If you like a secluded and natural spot with still some convenience of civilisation you may find your place. Good fishing - even for such inexperienced guys like us. 

 The bush hotwater bath is great, the bach provides all the basic necessities one needs, & caught fish dinner off the pier! Many thanks for the firewood & loan of the fishing poles. The caretaker from Dryden Bay was very friendly & welcoming too. Need to provide drainhole bungs for the dinghys though -- alas not currently usable.
