“Perfect Honeymoon Getaway”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I visited Bay View Vacation Rentals (Villa #2), May 21-28, for our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing! The house was one of the cleanest places I've stayed and had everything you could possibly need. Very private and quiet spot on the island, and the view from the back deck is breathtaking. We got up every morning to drink coffee and have breakfast outside under the pavilion. The sunset and star-gazing are like nothing I've ever seen.

While there, Charlie and his family were so great. Such a kind and generous family. He took us by the store on our way in so we could stock up for the week and gave us so much great information about the island.

We explored the island, went to the Sunday Pig Roast at Chat-N-Chill, went to Tropic of Cancer beach, ate at Santana's, and did an excursion the first few days we were there. The last few days, we did not want to leave the house, and didn't! Why leave when you have everything where you stay! So awesome. We had access to the kayaks, where we went across to our own private beach and saw so many neat shells and a ton of starfish! amazing! We snorkeled just outside the house every day, too. There are so many beautiful, tropical fish to see! And of course, the sea turtle, Sherman, that lives there!

I can't say enough nice things about Charlie and his beautiful place. We are already planning a trip back. It couldn't have been a more perfect honeymoon. Thanks, Charlie!

“Amazing!!!”

person found this review helpful

Bay View rentals is the best rental in Exuma. Charlie and his family truly made us feel at home. He made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. The a/c went out in the unit and Charlie caught it before we even food. He made sure it was fixed before night time. Any requests we had Charlie was quick to respond or take care of. He even brought us some fresh fruit which was absolutely amazing. He made us feel as if we were part of his family.
The house it's self is awesome as well. This was our second time renting this unit from Charlie. The house was so clean and very nice. The view from the porch is just breath taking. He has such a nice set up with the pavilion out by the water. The little beach was perfect for snorkeling in shallow water and we seen many fish.

We highly recommend this rental. Will always return here!!

“Best Location on Island”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

This is a super value. We rented both units for 10 days and agreed it was not long enough. Most pristine waters you can imagine - people staying in other locations around the island book excursions by boat to see the waters that you can just walk out your back door to see. The units are spotless and comfortable. Everything you need is available and if not, Charlie is willing to help with anything you need. He is a great host and full of knowledge. We are already planning our next trip!

My family and I stayed here for 8 days in June and it was incredible. Charlie was an amazing host, very attentive and always answered our questions. His house is right on the property so he is always available.
We we were picked up from the airport and were able to stop on the way back for groceries.
The house was very nice, VERY clean, and it is right on the water so you don't have to worry about going anywhere. At low tide my family and I walked all the way across the bay. He also has kayaks to use on the water free of charge. The unit has a really nice 40" TV- we brought our firestick and were able to stream various shows.
He has his own rental cars right there and you just pay for the days you use them which is super convenient. We used the car to go to Tropic of Cancer beach, hoopers bay, cocoplum beach, places to eat, etc.
Instead of taking the ferry we rented his boat and took it to stocking island which was great. He showed how to use the boat and riding it to stocking island was a awesome.
One night Charlie came over with fresh fish that he caught for us to cook for dinner, it was delicious!!
Overall Charlie was an amazing host and I highly recommend staying here! It was the perfect location situated between things that we wanted to do that were north or south. There's one main road so it's pretty easy to navigate the island. On our final day Charlie drove us back to the airport. Thanks for being a great host and we hope to be back soon!

Rented Charlie's home in June 2016 with my spouse and 2 young adults. The house was perfect! Right on the beach and super clean. Did the full day trip with 4 C's based on Charlie's recommendation and had an awesome time! The water is so clear and beautiful! We loved every minute of our vacation and hope to return soon!

“Perfect location and great host”
Reviewed April 30, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at one of the two apartments for 5 nights in April 2016. It was really one of the best vacations we've ever had. The location is just perfect - quiet and right next to the sea with smaller offshore islands only a few metres away. The water is crystal clear and fairly calm. Kayaks are complimentary and great to explore the area. We enjoyed paddling around and spending time on the isolated islands and were able to spot nurse sharks, a baby lemon shark, sting rays as well as sea turtles and dolphines close by. We also rented Charlie's boat and one of his cars for a day to see some more of Great and Little Exuma and the other islands.
The apartment itself is very clean and especially the kitchen comes with everything you may need.
Charlie is a fantastic host. He is super friendly and helps his guests to make the most out of their stay. He cares a lot that they feel comfortable. His house is located behind the two apartments which is great in case you need something.
We really had an amazing time and would love to come back :)

“Truely a Slice of Paradise!”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at Bay View Villa April 12-22 2016 and it was everything and beyond what we had hoped for. We were looking for the perfect vacation to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Charlie's place was more than amazing, exactly what we where looking for. First we were considering an all inclusive, but then we realized that we want privacy, seclusion and explore the island and cays and experience Exuma beyond a resort.
Charlie answered all our questions promptly at the time of our booking. He picked us up at the airport and stopped at the local grocery store to get supplies. Bay View Villa was the cleanest place we ever stayed at and it made us feel right at home. The kitchen is well stocked, there was also a BBQ grill available to us, lots of towels, even a 5 gal water jug he got for us.. I was a bit concerned to stay there 10 days, and wondered if it would not get too long for us, but we never had one boring minute we had adventures everyday. We enjoyed the beautiful view, and used the gazebo for breakfast and dinners almost everyday. It was so quiet and peaceful. We used the kayak every day and went exploring the nearby cays. Charlie was always available when we had questions, he helped us book a excursion trip with "Four Cs" which was a fun day and we would highly recommend it. Charlie is busy and takes pride in his beautiful place but he is never to busy for his guests to answer questions or tell us about Exuma. He really goes out of his way to make us feel like "Special Guests" and is concerned about his guests happiness during their stay at Bay View Villa. One evening he fished for us so we could have delicious snappers for supper and another day he got us fresh coconuts of his palm tress. this all made is such a special time at Bay View Villa .Charlie has cars available for rent, which we rented on 3 days to go to town or out to eat. We also rented his boat to go to town to get groceries. We are already talking about when we will go back, this is a wonderful place and we hope to visit Charlie, his family and stay at Bay View Villa soon again.
