Description

  • Excellent Fishing very close to the scallop beds and outer sounds fishing and diving areas.
  • Family Friendly - the property is well equiped for families and a fenced play area for children.
  • Altermate Chill Spot - BBQ on the deck and soak in the views and birdlife that surrounds you.

A perfect spot to have a wine on the deck as the sun goes down - or if you are an early bird, watch the fantastic sun rise (pictured).

Part of the charm of Dryden Bay is it's sandy beach and wonderful bird life. The property is boat access only. Water taxis take guests to the property from Picton on regular scheduled services - or you can hire a small water taxi from the Picton waterfront for a larger group or travel in by your own boat. A safe mooring is available as part of the rental.

The house is a comfortable, well equipped, sunny home which offers an ideal retreat from hustle and bustle. The large deck gives the opportunity to dine outside, sunbathe or just chill. There is fantastic wild life all around the property and a lawn for children and adults to play on! The back lawn is fully fenced. There is a wharf to arrive and depart from and the property comes with a mooring should you bring your own boat.

Great for families, small groups or a quiet weekend away. Dryden Bay is a Fishing paradise, located close to the scallop area and great dives spots.You do not have to leave the Bay for those that do not have boats as there is great fishing to be had in the Bay area - you do not have to travel far to catch a fish......just remember to pack your fishing rod and bait!

Close to Ships Cove, the starting point for the Queen Charlotte Track. Excellent picnic areas and historical land sites are close by for a day out. Motuara Bird Sanctaury is a short boat ride and there are plenty of local walks available.

If you feel like dinner out you could take the water taxi or your own boat to one of the local resorts nearby.

The beach is flat and sandy, very safe for children and families. An easy launching spot for a dingy or kayak. The wharf provides a great place to fish with a hand line or to dive from.

Everything is on your doorstep - the hardest part is deciding what to do next!

A great place to have fun or just chill ..... you have the choice!

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Pets may be considered. Linen avaliable at $10 per person if required. Optional Cleaning Service can be provided - or alternatively batch to be cleaned on departure.

  • Seeking isolation and good fishing in The Sounds for four including friends...

    Seeking isolation and good fishing in The Sounds for four including friends from Australia. Property had everything we required and the location was ideal. Lucky with weather - forecast was not good - so boating was fine. It would be a long haul from Picton in bad weather especially in an open boat such as ours but absolutely loved the time we spent at Dryden Bay. Plenty of fish, plenty of sights and plenty of things to do.
