Bay View had everything we wanted for our winter escape from the north. The house was immaculate, the kitchen perfectly stocked right down to the loaf pans, the bedrooms were spacious and the feel of the house was updated and fresh. Charlie is a conscientious caretaker down to the last detail.

The view of the water and cays is spectacular. We loved living with the rising and receding tide which exposed the white sand bar just beyond the edge of the property. We took the kayaks out daily - whether just to the sand bar to look for sand dollars - success! - or just a bit further to Man O War Cay where we could walk across to one of most perfect beaches I've ever seen.

We took advantage of Charlie's rental boat for a day trip to Elizabeth Harbor and Stocking Island, and for a fishing trip which supplied us with fresh fish and lobster for dinner. This was a convenient without having to drive into town to rent a boat.

Charlie was ever accommodating and helpful in every way, a great host who truly loves his island and wants to share it with others. The pictures represent the house, yard, and beach perfectly, so we had no surprises. It was a lucky find and we recommend it.

Bay View Villas are an exceptional place to stay. My husband loves to bone fish and I enjoy the beach and the sun. This place had it all. Bonefishing the flats right in front of our villa, as well as a beach and plenty of sun. The owner, Charles Rolle was very accomodating and pleasant to work with. The Villas were cleaned to perfection. Rental car available right on the property as well as kayaks and a boat. We cannot wait to return.

What an amazing location! The villa exceeded our expectations in every way. The view was incredible and the villa was gorgeous and spotless. Loved having use of the kayaks and the quiet beaches that surrounded us. The owner was a wonderful man who we enjoyed getting to know and went out of his way to make certain we had a pleasant stay. If we ever return, we would stay there again. Thank you for sharing this special place with us.

We just stayed at Bay View with Charlie Rolle from January 8 -18. This was our second visit to Exuma and if possible, we fell even more in love with this place. Charlie picked us up at the airport at 7am to bring us to the villa. From the moment we arrived at the property we felt at home. The villa itself was spotless and super cute. Seriously, I have no idea how, but there was not a grain of sand in the place when we arrived...can't say the same for when we left though!! It was well equipped and I can't think of anything it was missing. There was a/c as well, but we didn't really feel the need for it as there is a pretty perfect breeze most of the time. We enjoyed having the wifi and loved the company of Shilo, the resident dog on the property. Will miss her for sure. Charlie is a very considerate host, always making sure we were taken care of. He even made conch fritters, which were the best we've had on the island as well as fresh caught fish for dinner one night! All in all, the scenery, the backyard, the kayaking and our host, Charlie, made this into a genuine home away from home and incredible trip. Cannot wait to come back!!!!! We feel we have made a true friend and will definitely be back as soon as possible!!! :) Thanks again Charlie and family!!!!!!!!!!!!!
