“Fabulous! Clean and beautiful home!”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

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 1 May 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 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

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.

“Perfect vacation house with a breathtakingly beautiful beach in front”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

I stayed in Charlie's vacation house during Dec. 24 to Dec. 29 with my husband to spend Christmas holiday in Exuma. I have so far traveled about 30 countries and, this vacation house is the BEST!! accommodation that I have ever experienced!!!

Before the arrival at the Georgetown airport, I contacted Charlie via e-mail for airport pick-up and everything was nicely arranged for us to safely arrive at the vacation house.
The house had a spacious living room, two cozy bedrooms, a bathroom all of which were very well furnished and clean. Charlie told us he was once a home builder and he built this house on his own^^

Charlie was very friendly and attentive. Since we stayed in Exuma during the Christmas holiday week, the only supermarket in the island was closed but, Charlie brought us some home-made food to make sure we are okay during our stay. He also constantly checked to find whether we needed something. I am very thankful for everything he did for us.

The private beach in front of the house was breathtakingly beautiful with turquoise water sparkling in the sun. You can relax all day long at the gazebo or you can paddle a kayak to reach a sand bar across the sea when it is low tide.

If you want to explore somewhere else, you can rent a car or a boat from Charlie. We rented his car for one-day trip to look around the island and the rental fee was relatively reasonable compared to the price offered by other rental companies in Exuma.

I definitely would like to recommend this vacation house and, personally it was my best accommodation in my entire traveling life. The quality of the property and service is definitely worth more that what you pay for!!

“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!
