“Best place to stay on Exuma”
Didn't really want to leave a review because I don't want to ruin the best kept secret in Exuma. This place is just perfect, and Charlie is very accommodating and kind.
“Probably the best place to stay in Exuma”
This was our first trip to Exuma and it exceeded all our expectations! The villa has a simply awesome setting with great views and experiences at your doorstep. Charlie greeted us with a huge smile while cleaning the grill which reassured us instantly that we had chosen the right place to stay. The villa itself is immaculate with Charlie ensuring we had everything we needed at anytime during our stay, including assisting with booking a tour. Thanks again Charlie and family for a stunning holiday, we miss the villa and island so much and plan to return with family. Stef and Mark
“Best vacation spot ever!!!!!”
Upon our arrival we noticed both rentals were spotless. The view is stunning, a deck with a hammock, chairs, and a private beach to ourselves! Our host, Charlie exceeded our expectations with his hospitality and genuine care for his guests. We really had a wonderful time. We recommend this to anyone looking to have an amazing, memorable experience.
“Beautiful relaxing gorgeous!!!!”
We just got back from our trip to the villa and oh my gosh what an amazing trip!!! Let me start by saying that the pictures of the house on the inside, doesn't do it's justice, the house was way better looking in person , so clean and smells so good!! That water was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, we snorkel every single day my husband Spearfish every single day my kids had so much fun and we caught some yummy fish, we kayak every day and went all over the place it's so beautiful and peaceful, we were the only ones there for the entire week. Charles was the nicest guy! he would do anything to make your trip the best!!! If you're planning to have a peaceful quiet trip this is the place to go!!
“Fabulous clean house, with beautiful view!k”
So happy we chose this place to stay. I wasn't sure at first because it wasn't within walking distance of Georgetown. But Charlie has a car for each villa to rent at a reasonable price. The villa is cute, spacious and super clean. The kitchen is fully stocked, so it made it easy to make breakfast or lunch and dine out every night. Charlie picked us up at the Airport and showed us the town and let us buy groceries before taking us to the villa. I was so happy when we drove up and saw the place. The view was unbelievable! From inside the house or on the patio, views of beautiful blue clear water just steps away! So much to do on the island or just relax on the deck. This really is the perfect place to stay! And Charlie is the best host, suggesting restaurants or an excursion to take. I would definitely rent from him again! Thanks Charlie!!
This was our 5th trip to Exuma but our first stay at Bay View. We found the rental to be comfortable, VERY clean, and well maintained. In fact, I even asked Charlie if we were the first guests staying there. We were not, but I couldn't tell as everything looked brand new. We enjoyed getting to know Charlie, his wife, and their dog. The view is amazing and we took full advantage of the kayaks that are included. We will be back!
“To Do List: visit one of the most beautiful places in the world √”
Abbiamo soggiornato da Charlie dal 19 al 27 novembre 2014 (2 coppie di 25enni) e sogniamo ancora ad occhi aperti l'isola di Exuma. Siamo partiti da Verona e dopo uno scalo a Roma siamo atterrati a Miami (compagnia Alitalia). Da Miami abbiamo poi raggiunto con la compagnia aerea American Airlines l'isola. All'aeroporto ci aspettava Charlie, proprietario degli appartamenti che ha costruito lui stesso con le sue mani. Charlie è originario delle Bahamas e si dedica anima e corpo ai suoi ospiti, abita a due passi dalle villette ed è sempre pronto a dare una mano e risolvere i problemi. Parla in inglese come tutti gli abitanti dell'isola e i suoi consigli ed indicazioni sono stati preziosissimmi per rendere la nostra vacanza il top! Charlie offre diversi servizi: uscite a pesca, noleggio barca, noleggio macchina (honda accord) e transfer da e per aeroporto/George Town. Il primo giorno siamo andati con Charlie a pescare, ci ha messo a disposizione tutto il necessario e con soddisfazione abbiamo poi cucinato il nostro bottino ed assaggiato la specialità dell'isola: l'insalata di conch preparata da Charlie in persona. Il giorno seguente abbiamo noleggiato la macchina esplorando la parte sud dell'isola ( spiaggia del Tropico del cancro e aragosta fritta da Santana's). A disposizione degli ospiti gratuitamente vi sono 3 kayak (2 singoli ed uno doppio) con i quali abbiamo raggiunto la splendida spiaggia Maraya Cay divenuta subito la nostra spiaggia preferita con una sottile lingua di sabbia bianca finissima circondata da acqua cristallina. Nelle sue acque è possibile vedere gigantesche stelle marine e pesci tropicali. Durante la vacanza abbiamo anche noleggiato la barca con la quale è possibile arrivare fino alla bellissima Stocking island (volendo c'è anche il water taxi che parte da George Town). l'ultimo giorno invece tramite Charlie abbiamo prenotato un tour organizzato (Fourc's) unico modo per poter raggiungere la pig island (stupendi gli swimming pigs!!!) e le altre cays. Charlie ha fatto di tutto perchè provassimo tutte le specialità dell'isola preparandoci oltre alla conch salad, le conch fritto e le noci di cocco. L'appartamento è molto grazioso e pulito, con tutte le comodità (aria condizionata, elettrodomestici, tv, wi-fi, griglia, lavatrice ed asciugatrice, asciugamani da bagno e teli da mare) in pratica portatevi solo oggetti personali ed il phon! Il supermercato più vicino si trova a George Town da raggiungere in macchina, nella cittadina si trovano anche una pompa della benzina e la banca con sportello ATM. Di fronte alla villetta vi è uno splendido gazebo con amaca affacciato direttamente sul mare, a volte vi sono i fastidiosi sand flyes per i quali consigliamo spry Off! (abbiamo letto che l'olio Johnson's Baby fa miracoli ma non abbiamo potuto testarlo). Consigliamo Bay View #2 di Charlie a chi desidera avere un pezzetto di paradiso tutto per sè! Speriamo di tornarci al più presto, forse chissà per il viaggio di nozze! ;-) We stayed by Charlie's Bay View Villa from the 19th to the 27th November 2014 ( 2 couples, 25 -year - old) and we are still daydreaming Exuma island. We left from Verona, stopover in Rome and landed in Miami with Alitalia. Then from Miami to Exuma with American Airlines. Charlie, our host and the owner of the villas he built by himself, was waiting for us at the airport. Charlie is an original bahamian man and he dedicates himself to his guests, he lives very close to the 2 apartments and he is always helpful and to our disposal to resolve any problem. He can speak english as the others Bahamas' inhabitants and his advices were very precious to make out holiday the top one! Charlie offers several services to their guests: fishing excursions, boat rental, car rental (honda accord) and the transfer from and to the airport or George Town. Day 1: we went fishing with Charlie, he brought all the sporting facilities and we cooked to our great satisfaction our catch such as tasted the island specialty: the conch salad prepared by Charlie. Day 2: we rented the car and we explored the southern part of the Island ( we suggest Tropic of cancer beach and the fried lobster at the Santana's Restaurant). Charlie puts free 3 kayaks ( 2 single kayak and 1 double kayak) at him guests disposal. We reached the amazing Maraya Cay, it became imediately our favourite beache thanks to its white sand and crystal clear water. Here we saw gorgeous starfishes and tropical fishes. During our holiday we also rented the boat and reached the beautiful Stocking island (if you prefer there is the water taxi from George Town). The last day Charlie helped us to book a guided tour full day with Fourc's, this is the only way to visit the famous pig island (the swimming pigs were so funny!!!) and the others cays. Charlie did everything to be sure that we tried all thetipical food, so he cooked for us the conch salad, conch fritto and fresh Coconuts to drink. The apartment is very beautiful and clean with alle the comforts ( air conditioning, electrical appliances, tv, wi-fin, grill, washing machine, dryer, towels and beach towels) in other words bring just your personal belongings and the hairdryer! The closer supermarket is located George Town, you must reach by car, here you can find even the gas pump and the bank with ATM. In the garden of the villas there is a beautiful gazebo with hammock with sea view, sometimes there were the annoying sand flyes, we reccomend the spry Off! (we also read about the benefit of the Johnson's Baby oil but we couldn't try it ). We suggest the Charlie's Bay View #2 apartment to who is looking for a piece of private paradise! We hope to go back soon, perhaps for the honeymoon ! ;-) Elisa & Daniele
“Unforgetable experience in paradise”
Our entire visit was an unforgettable experience, from the minute we landed on the island until we sadly departed. We were greeted at the airport by Charlie Rolle and felt immediately welcome, we even had a good laugh with him during the car ride back to the house. Charlie made us feel welcome and at home. We were looking for a private and secluded property where we could relax and spend our days exploring the area. Since we haven't ever rented a vacation home such as this we were a bit unsure of what to expect. Charlie saw to it that every detail of our stay was perfect; from the spotless, well appointed house, to the beautiful, well maintained grounds, fresh bananas and mangoes that Charlie brought to us on our first morning, the freshly caught lobsters and Grouper that we ate for our first supper, the list goes on and on.... Our accommodations could not have been nicer or cleaner, every detail was spotless and extremely well maintained. We enjoyed our evenings on the deck watching the water and sky, relaxing in the hammock looking at the stars, taking in all that was surrounding us. We did have some rain from time to time and were minimally troubled by the "no see 'ums" (which is what bug spray is for!) but we cannot think of a negative thing to say about our stay. Our stay was so much more than we could have hoped for, and we hope to return soon for another.
