We stayed here for 9 nights. Charlie picked us up at the airport, he made it easy for us even though our flight was 3 hours late. He even had a cold Kalik waiting for me. The rental had everything we needed and was spotless. Charlie pays attention to the details and you can tell by the cleanliness and upkeep of the property. Our aircon stopped working on Sunday and he had a service tech there within hours, I don't think I could pull that off at home. We rented one of his cars (he has 2 cars, 1 truck and 2 boats for rent), it was nice to know it was there if we wanted to use it but if we didn't it didn't cost us a days rental. Car was very clean and ran great. We rented the boat for a day and did some snorkeling (there is a map of buoys available) and had lunch at ChatnChill.

I also spent a day fishing with Charlie, he knows the flats and fishes hard. No shortage of bonefish in the area. He went fishing one day and gave us some filets, great on the grill. He also has kayaks that can be paddled around the nearby cays.

Definitely recommend this rental. Can't say enough on how accommodating Charlie is. Keep in mind that there is a full kitchen but no restaraunts nearby. We ate breakfast in and usually had the other meals out. Be sure to try Tropic Breeze, it's not too far from away.

Charlie was always prompt and available for our needs yet gave us plenty of space. He doesn't operate on island time. There are 2 units side by side that share a large common deck, we hardly saw the other guests. All of the rental rates are clearly layed out on a rental sheet on the wall. Charlie is more than willing to answer any question, just ask.

Our trip to The Exumas and our stay at Bayview Villas was amazing! A week was not long enough! This rental had everything we needed ( car, kayaks, boats) and we only had to deal with Charles the owner who went over and beyond to make our vacation truly special! This place felt like home away from home! Perfect location and isolation. Many days we kayaked and explored many of the islands and we were the only people around. Driving around was easy and the rental is in the middle of everything! Charles built the villas and he did not miss a beat with the construction and interior.... Everything you need is provided. The other rental was rented during our stay but wasn't an issue and never really saw them. I've traveled a lot but I have to say the views from the villa are probably the prettiest I've ever seen. Can't wait to go back! -Georgia Richmond, VA

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.
