Location Location Location!!! We LOVE this place!!!! So glad I found and chose Bay View!
My husband and I vacationed to Great Exuma for 1 week, with our 2 children, ages 11 & 14. Charlie picked us up from the airport, and took us to get groceries and liquor. Then to the rental, 20 minutes from Georgetown (30 minutes from the airport). The unit was immaculate!! And met every need. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds, towels, AC, very clean grill, large closets, gas oven, microwave, blender, coffee maker, washer/ dryer, (no dishwasher), tv, table, outdoor table/chairs, lounge chairs. Charlie provides start up soaps, toilet paper, etc. Unit includes use of kayaks! Kayak across the bay to Man-O-War Cay. INCREDIBLE!!! Saw a sea turtle, sting rays, shark, and star fish all on the 1st day! Husband fished right off the dock and from the kayak. He also took a bonefish fishing trip - his vacation highlight!
This rental is part of a duplex, we really enjoyed meeting the neighbors, who had been there for 3 weeks! They provided us with lots of tips!
The unit has cars available to rent at $50 / day which is a great rate for the island. Rent a car and explore the island. It is safe and the locals are very friendly! Ate at Santana's, (must get a rum cake at the bakery next door), Tropical Breeze, Catch a Fire, and Haulover Bay (you can kayak to this restaurant!). Shopped in town and Haulover Bay has a gift shop.
Charlie rents his 15' Boston Whaler boat for $150/day (plus gas). Includes cooler. Also a great rate for the island! Explore the nearby islands and dock at the Chat-n-Chill for drinks and food on Stocking Island.
Also, be sure to book a tour to the other islands early in the week (ours was canceled due to weather, ended up settling for 1/2 day tour on another day). Highly recommend a tour. The beauty of the Exumas is unbelievable!!!
Things to bring: cash (very few places take credit card), snorkel gear (or Minn's in Georgetown rents it for $10/day), straws, bug spray, sunscreen, fishing gear,
This trip was truly AMAZING!!!! Bay View exceeded my high expectations!! Highly recommend this to others!!!

Bayview Villas is only for those who want the best! Clean, comfortable and stunning views all over. Kayak to Man-of-War cay or to Mariah cay and enjoy unspoiled beaches. Watch marine life on the waterfront on the beautiful patio or relaxing on the private beach. Car, boat no problem, all there for you to use at a great price. Charlie and his family are warm and welcoming to all and it was a pleasure feeding Shilo our extras we cooked up, she loved it. You can fish right off the waterfront deck and catch Bone Fish or Barracuda or anything that will show up on your hook. This place is for those who want to experience and explore the great outdoors of Exuma on their own. You can Kayak over to Haulover Bay restaurant and enjoy drinks, food or again the beautiful view. This is the best place to stay!! Thank you to all the family and Charlie. We will miss you but look forward to seeing you again in the future. Cheers!!!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Perfection - the only way to describe our stay at Bay View. Charlie and his family have paid special attention to making this a home away from home for his guests. The apartment is modestly appointed, but we had everything we needed for a 5-day stay and were overwhelmed with how welcomed and comfortable we felt from the very first day. Pictures and words cannot convey how beautiful this location is - it was so much more than we ever expected.
With busy lives every other day of the year, it was so nice to disconnect from all of that for a few days and just relax and enjoy the vision Charlie is bringing to life at Bay View. We left knowing we'll be back again.

“Relaxing and Beautiful Vacation”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My husband and myself stayed at the Bay View (Villa 1) home. It was very clean and had all the amenities that we needed. Charlie was there to greet us and we also met his wife and son. Such a nice family! The view from the condo was fabulous, water was so blue. We had a great time kayaking to the other islands and just walking the beaches. So relaxing. I would totally recommend staying here. Very relaxing.

If you are looking for all the comforts of home with the most glorious view of crystal clear waters then Charlie Rolle's is where you need to be. The unit we stayed in had every imaginable amenity, was immaculate and the beaches are all perfect and tranquil. (during low tide you can easily reach the neighboring island with a short swim for a little exploring and he has multiple kayaks available). But what makes the experience even more special is Charlie himself and his wonderful family. He surprised us with home cooked meals and treats during our stay and was always available to answer any questions... he also makes two vehicles available for daily rental if you happen to want to explore more of the Island (we barely left). We travel extensively and this was one of the most perfect trips we have ever taken.
