We spent our honeymoon (Aug '15) at Bayview, what an amazing experience! Right from the start Catharina was so helpful and friendly, Sharon and Gideon were incredible, always willing to go out of their way to ensure we had a good holiday, and the guards and cleaners were always smiling and friendly. Our unit was 70 steps (we counted) from an unbelievable swimming beach (long, flat, no rocks, warm water) and maybe 100 more from Neptunes beach bar (cold R&R's and good food). One evening as we reached the beach (60 steps in) we were greated by two hump back whales breaching and hitting the water with their tales! The unit was incredibly well maintained and kitted out (gas stove, stainless steel pots, aircon, fluffy towels and comfortable bed). As for Barra the area it is heaven on earth, the most incredible beach and estuary I have ever seen (we spent one day watching flamingos and the other swimming with dolphins and whale sharks), the people are friendly and welcoming, and the we couldn't have asked for better weather. We can't wait to go back!
