We rented an apartment from Charlie Rolle's Bay View Vacation Rentals during the 2018 Exuma Regatta. His beachside units were already reserved, so we rented one of his apartments that is located along the main road through Rolletown.
Rolletown is a nice, quiet area, and the apartment was within a short walk from the Bay View Rentals beach access. Charlie met us at the apartment when we arrived, to make sure we got settled, and to provide us with the keys.
The apartment unit was newly redecorated and equipped (new small appliances, TV, kitchenwares, etc.). The place was so clean we could literally have eaten off the floor if that was something we'd aspired to doing!
We had an amazing stay. Charlie is an excellent fishing guide (snapper, bonefish, etc). He also took us to some gorgeous snorkeling spots. He knows the area very well! He goes above and beyond in making sure his guests are comfortable and having a fantastic time.
I would strongly recommend that if you are headed to the Georgetown area, you rent from Charlie and book at least one fishing expedition!
This is the 4th time we stayed here and we love it as much if not more as the 1st time. This time, due to some last minute re-scheduling on our side, we stayed our last night at one of the rentals which are located of the main street and are away from the waterfront. We were a bit hesitant at first as it is away from the water but the apartments are just as nice & clean and they do to our pleasant surprise actually have a nice ocean view. The water is def within walkable distance but we recommend you get a car which btw you can pay for with the savings of the nightly rental fee. When we were there the units by the street didn't have yet wifi but they are working on that. We would stay there again for sure.
This is our third stay at Bayview Villas, and we loved it the third time, as much as we did our first time. It is a wonderful private and peaceful location. The water is beautiful for swimming and fishing. We enjoyed the kayaks that are provided to explore the nearby cays and beaches. There is lots to see on the island and Charlie provides a car for us to use. The appartment is very clean and fresh and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware and appliances. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck right in front of appartment with a beatiful view of the blue water, or we spent time at the gazebo right by the water. Charlie is always available and near by when we had questions and is always happy to help. Twice he brought us fresh caught fish for supper and he makes sure his guests have a wonderful time at bayview villa. Can't wait till next year! Thanks Charlie and family for making such a slice of paradise available for us!
Stayed at Charlie's villa for our 10 year anniverary and first trip away w/out our kids! It was absolutely perfect. Charlie is completely accomodating and we rented both his car and boat. You really need to explore this island! Taking the boat out is a must and such a great perk to not have to rent from Minns, pick-up and drop-off at your villa! The location of the villa is unreal. You benefit from a beach and a gazebo/dock-perfect. The water is so beautiful and kayaking over to the sand bar is another must. We have traveled the world pretty extensively (Hawaii, Greece, Thailand, Coasta Rica, etc.) and never seen water like this. The villa itself is completely stocked, including spices, etc. for cooking, nothing missing, no corners cut. It is large and comfortable with excellent outdoor space as well. This has to be the cleanist place I have ever stayed in, it was spotless!! We would love to come back to Great Exuma, but only if we can stay here!! Thanks Charlie!!
Being in there was amazing. From booking forward, Charlie was great to work with. The house has everything you need and spotless. The real gem is location. The gazebo and surroundings are beyond words. Charlie also has a great charter trip, boat and car rental. Plus turles, rays, sharks and puffer fish all in you back yard
