“Outstanding Private Island Getaway”

Our stay here was phenomenal! It feels like you have the whole island to yourself. The water is clear blue and you can see all the way down. There are tons of little islands around you can swim or kayak too. You can also rent a boat from Charlie and take it out to all of the islands. Our favorite days there were when we had the boat. We would take it in town early in the morning to go grocery shopping and then take it out to go snorkel or fish around different islands. The grocery is only about a 20 minute boat ride away. When we went fishing we found an awesome spot on an island past the Man O War Cay. We used the squid bait that Charlie gave us and it worked perfectly. We caught tons of fish and took them back to cook for dinner. You can gut the fish yourself or Charlie can help you. We had never done it before and he helped us out and cleaned our biggest catch which was a grouper. Also when you are cleaning the fish sharks will come up and eat your scraps left over! It is awesome feeding the sharks there. There is also a big turtle that will come up that you can feed too. We saw barracudas, sharks, dolphins, sting ray, and tons of other species as well there.
The villa is super clean and feels like a home away from home. You are supplied with everything you need to cook or eat with in the house. And if you need anything Charlie and his wife were always happy to help, and his house was only about 50 yards away in case you needed anything. Taking a rental car out is fun as well. You can go into town and explore or just explore the island. Charlie also offers to pick you up from the airport and to drop you off which is very convenient. He was so kind to take us to get food after our long flight there. He also supplies you with a 5 gallon jug of water which is super convenient. Our stay there was awesome and we hope to come back soon. Everything there is so beautiful and you won't want to leave.

“Relaxing vacation with a beautiful view”

The Location

Rolle Town is conveniently located about 20 minutes from the airport. The property is beachfront and oceanfront. The locals told me that Rolle Town is the most beautiful part of the island to stay and now I know why. The water is different tones of blue and turquoise almost fake looking but in a good way. From your living room window, patio, and gazebo you can see the water.

The Beach and Water

The beach and the water are hard to beat. The pictures are great but to really appreciate it you have to be there in person. The turquoise waters of different tones and the white sands are excellent.

The Villa

The villa is very clean. The villa is equipped with ceramic tile throughout and it has a full kitchen with pots and pans. There is also a full bath with a tub/shower combo. The guest room has two beds and the master has one. Living room has a TV and DVD player. But really when you get to the villa you won't spend a ton of time in the villa because of how beautiful the water and sand is. Carry the kayak to the water and go over to the sand bar and hang out for a while or go to the nearby Cay across the water. The views are breathtaking.

Charlie's brother in law goes fishing all of the time and if you catch him in the afternoon you can buy his fresh catch of lobster and fish. It's awesome.

The Host

Charlie lives only a house away. He leaves you to enjoy your vacation but is still there at the drop of a hat to help you with whatever you need. Charlie is truly a giving person. I don't know of many people that I have met that are as nice as Charlie. He knows most of the people on the island so if you need to book a boat tour or something, Charlie is your guy to help. Charlie likes to surprise his guests with gifts and I won't tell you what so it doesn't ruin the surprise.

Charlie, our family can't thank you enough. We had a great time. THANK YOU

Great location, great accommodation and a great host. The place had everything you could need and Charlie was more than happy to help with anything - even lending us bikes to use during our three week stay. The kayaks were also good for exploring the area and we saw so many species swimming around the villa - jacks, snappers, barracudas, rays, turtles, sharks and even a dolphin. The day he took us fishing was great fun and we caught more bones than on any of our DIY days. It was easy to hire a car from Charlie on the days we needed it and being collected from the airport was lovely as Charlie gave us a running commentary of places to go whilst on route to the villa.

“Great time at Exuma!”

We just came back from Exuma where we stayed at Charlie's rental house. We all had great time there, excellent property (all as described, clean spacious house with all things necessary for the stay), deck, small beach. There are long, sandy and empty beaches just in front of the house where you can get by a kayak, one day we rented a boat from Charlie to get to the Stocking island, great experience. We would recommend also to rent a car so you can move around the island and try new beaches, there are hidden place waiting to be discovered. Our favourite spot was the beach where you could feed marine turtles. We have only good things to say about the place and Charlie's hospitality. And would like to come back one day!

“Perfect Vacation getaway”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Charlie's rental is the best location on the island in my opinion! Its off the road so its very quiet and secluded. Also its right on the ocean. Out in front of the house its so sandy with crystal clear turquoise water. Across from the house is Man O War Cay. There are 3 kayaks ( 2 single and 1 double) that you can use to get over to the cay. The opposite side is absolutely breathtaking! The water is so clear and bright. There is so much wildlife to see right outside your door. We saw HUGE starfish, sting rays, a turtle, and a shark. Charlie also built a gazebo down by the water that is perfect! Theres a table to eat or hang out at, a hammock, and some chairs for lounging. It also has stairs down to a platform so you can get in the water.

The house was also perfect! Charlie built everything himself and it shows what a hard worker he is! He and his wife spend hours cleaning before new guests arrive and the unit is in immaculate condition. There is everything you need to be comfortable, it felt just like our home for the week. There were extra blankets, plenty of towels, nice big beach towels, hair drier, everything you could need. There is also satellite TV and wifi. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need as well. Washer and drier outside the door was perfect!

Charlie is definitely the best host you will find on the island! He picked us up from the airport and took us into town to grocery shop and showed us around. His house is across the way and he was always brining us awesome stuff! The first night we were there he made conch fritters which were to die for!! Throughout the week he brought us fruit from his garden and ingredients for island drinks. His family is so kind and welcoming, we felt at home from the second we got there and cannot wait to return!! We do not have a negative thing to say about our time at Charlie's. Thanks you so much Charlie and family for your hospitality and sharing your home with us!! We will miss you guys and also Shiloh! (The dog)

“Best rental in Great Exuma!”

We have stayed at many vacation rentals in different places, and Charlie's place was one of our very favorites! He was a very hard-working, kind and happy host. We felt like part of the family and that he truly is our friend. We were sad to leave! He and his family were a joy to be around! He was helpful with tourist advice and our place was spotlessly, unbelievably clean! Wow! We loved the amazing blue water that is right there, the shady gazebo, the nicely kept grounds, use of the kayaks to the pretty cays, and the great location to Georgetown, and to get to Tropic of Cancer and other beach and Santanas. The house is well maintained and equipped, and it was so relaxing and quiet! He has boats and vehicles that you can rent too. If we ever get the chance to come back to Exuma we will definitely stay again at Charlie's. He does all he can to help you and he is so enjoyable and reliable to work with and to get to know! We couldn't have been more happy! Thanks Charlie!!

“Fantastic Rental Unit”
Reviewed 6 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I am not sure where to begin regarding Charlie's rental, except that it was FANTASTIC. If you are hesitating to book, don't. You will not be dissappointed.

Located 8 miles from Georgetown, the rental unit is located on his property in front of a gorgeous cay. Charlie picked us up from the airport and drove us to the unit. Pictures do the view no justice, it was gorgeous. He has a hammock and lounge chairs, along with kayaks for exploring the cay. He is a wonderful host and available for any questions you might have. We rented Charlie's boat and explored around. Very convenient to be able to rent it right at the property.

The unit was well equipped with everything you would need. Not to mention it was spotlessly clean. Wifi was great. The only thing you would need is to bring extra beach towels if you require them.

I have stayed at budget to luxury hotels, and his unit blew away my expectations. If I am ever back in Great Exuma, I will be staying with Charlie again.
