“Staying at Bay View Vacation Rentals was a Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 25 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in Bay View Vacation Rentals Villa #2 from December 17 - December 24, 2015, and had a great experience! The property was beautiful, clean, and well-maintained. The owner, Charlie, made great efforts to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, and Exuma is a beautiful Island. We hope to return to Exuma in the future, and when we do we will stay at Bay View Vacation Rentals!

After we booked the property the owner, Charlie, sent us information on additional services we could purchase, including transportation to and from the airport, car rental, boat rental, etc. We arranged to have Charlie pick us up at the airport, and that is a great option. Charlie stopped at the Deli and the Supermarket so we could purchase supplies, and he pointed out local attractions and introduced us to the Island during the drive to the property. It great to have the chance to relax after the long trip, purchase supplies, get introduced to the Island, and ask questions.

The property itself was great. It is a duplex, with Villa #1 on one side and Villa #2 on the other side. Our unit was large, clean, and well-maintained. The property has a private beach, dock, a deck by the water with a gazebo for sitting in the shade as well as deck chairs for sitting in the sun, a soft grassy yard, and a large deck attached to the duplex with tables and chairs. Another great feature is that kayaks are provided for guests to use. We have two teenagers and a 5-year-old, and the property provided lots to do for everyone. Our 5-year-old enjoyed playing in the sand on the beach, swimming, and going out in the 2-person Kayak with me. Our teenagers enjoyed swimming and playing on the beach, going out in the kayaks to explore, and relaxing near the gazebo.

Directly across the bay from the property is Man-o-War Cay, a small island with beautiful beaches to explore. It was easy to kayak or swim over to it.

The bay itself is great, with blue clear water, a sandbar to explore at low tide, and lots of wildlife. We saw lemon sharks, starfish, and crabs, as well as a large puffer fish and a sea turtle that frequented the beach area.

There is much to do on the property itself, but if you want to go out and explore you can rent a car or a boat from Charlie by the day. We rented a car for 3 of the 7 days we were there, and the process was simple and convenient. Charlie provided us with the car keys at the beginning of our stay, and we just took the car on the days we wanted to. At the end of our stay we paid only for the days we used the car.

Charlie was a great host. He works hard to maintain and improve the property, and his great care and attention to detail are evident. He sincerely cares that guests have a good time while staying there, and he does his best to help. He shared lots of local knowledge, and even some local food with us during our stay. We greatly enjoyed the conversations we had with him.

We highly recommend Bay View Vacation Rentals! Thanks, Charlie and family for making our stay a great one!

“The beauty of Exuma and this property is beyond unbelievable.”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The property that this house was on was the best spot on the island. We explored one of the days and there is no need to ever leave this place other than going to the market to get food. The house was immaculately clean. Very well maintained and it had everything you need for your stay. There was shampoo and conditioner but you need to bring your own body wash/soap. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots/pans and utensils you need.
But the best part was the water in front of the house. Stunning. There aren't enough words to describe how beautiful it was. We spent hours kayaking and swimming and going to Moriah Cay across the bay and in the 4 days we spent on the property we only saw a family of 4 for about an hour on Moriah Cay. The rest of the time we had the little sand bar to ourselves. It was like being all alone in the world. Exactly what we needed.
Any time we had a request for Charlie (which wasn't often) he would respond right away.
Charlie picked us up and dropped us off at the airport so we didn't need to worry about trying to find the place in the dark on the evening we arrived. And because Charlie knew we were arriving after the grocery store closed he offered to have his wife pick up some things at the market for us so that we could prepare ourselves dinner and breakfast the next day before going to the market ourselves and stocking up for the rest of the week. That was incredibly helpful.
This was a very quiet island. Except for the guests staying in the unit next to ours we never saw any other tourists in the town we stayed in.
We also booked the swimming with the pigs tour with 4Cs Adventures. That was the reason we went to Exuma in the first place. Definitely recommend that too!
I'm so happy we stayed on Exuma instead of Nassau and renting this home was 10x better than being in a resort because we wanted to be alone in a non touristy area. We're already planning our next stay here. Definitely coming back!

“A Slice of Paradise!!!”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely stunning, one of the nicest spots on the Island. Centrally located and a great base for exploring the rest of Exuma (not that you will want to leave). Charlie is fantastic, so friendly and helpful couldn't have asked for a nicer host! He takes such great care of the property. The Villa was spotless, the cleanest rental we've stayed in. Extremely comfortable and it had everything we needed. As an added bonus you can also rent a car or boat from Charlie.

We had such an awesome time, the best part for us was taking out the kayaks everyday and exploring all the nearby Cays with Man-O-War and Moriah Harbour Cay National Park right on your doorstep! You can kayak for hours without seeing a single soul it's like having your own deserted Island. Spotted loads of marine life and loved seeing the resident turtle who always hung out around the dock. After hours of exploring there was nothing better than coming back and relaxing in the Gazebo, swaying on the hammock or floating out on the water in one of the lilos . The gazebo is right on the water with breathtaking views.

We got caught by Hurricane Joaquin the day we were due to fly back to the UK and had to stay an extra 3 days. Charlie was amazing! We had run out of food so he brought us loads of groceries & supplies to see us through the storm. Even venturing out during the storm to bring us home cooked meals (loved the conch & delicious chicken burgers) and checking up on us regularly to make sure we were ok. We would like to say a very special thanks to Charlie and his family for taking such great care of us! We are already dreaming about coming back to Exuma & staying at Bay View again.

“Absolutely Amazing!”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I stayed a week from 13-20 September 2015. This has been the most amazing experience ever! Thank you Charlie Rolle for your hospitality! We enjoyed the ocean caught fish, limes, guavas and conch. Loved every minute enjoying swimming off your dock and kayaking. The house was amazing and so very comfortable. We hope to come back for another get away. Thank you for everything!

“Just as presented in the photos-excellent”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our 3rd visit to Exuma and 1st time to stay at this place. Loved it so much and wouldnt consider any place else when we return.....it is what everyone else says it is-beautiful, clean, private-has everything at your fingertips if you want to kayak right from the property, swim, snorkel, explore, rent a car, rent a boat, grill out, chill out at the water on the dock and under cover if you want...some v cool beach bars/restaurants not very far away, some v beautiful secluded beaches all around. We drove all over the place as we like to see as much as we can and enjoy it all. Recommend the island and place as long as you like low key, and dont need to be waited on hand and foot by butlers and waiters etc . Our group was husband & wife and 16 y.o. who loves it there...even without a friend in tow -his 3rd time too. It is basically awesome
