We spent three nights in a 1-BR unit with a great view of the bay. When we arrived, the staff helped us book a sea kayaking trip for the following day by personally calling the tour operator for us. The room was very comfortable and the size allowed us to spread out, wash and dry all of our clothes (in the guest laundry), and reorganize our bags. The guest laundry was supposed to be open until 8:00 PM, but the staff let the door open for us to finish our wash because we got a late start. There was a clothesline available, which we used to finish drying some items. Although there was an excellent choice of restaurants nearby, we opted to stay in and make our own dinners. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a small oven. From the patio we were able to watch the sailboats on the bay and see lovely sunsets over the mountains. We were pleased with the choice to stay on Waikawa Bay rather than in Picton itself; we had a rental car so we were able to drive to Picton easily, and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of Waikawa. We would stay here again if we are in the area, and recommend the Bay Vista to other visitors.
