The property is beautiful and the house is spotless. Charlie, is a great host, he made I and my family feel at home. If your looking for a place to get away from it all and just relax, this place is perfect.
The villa was perfect for my husband, myself, and my 3 children! The island and the property are beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Charlie was very easy to work with and gave us some excellent advice. Thank you Charlie for your hospitality, kindness, and making us feel comfortable. My girls had plenty of fun with your daughter and send their regards!
We hope to return in a few years, definitely our best vacation yet!
The property was beautiful. We loved where it was situated in the channel which was perfect for our daughter to swim in. Charlie was awesome and very thoughtful on what would make the place comfortable to stay at. We would definitely recommend!!
We rented both villas for a family vacation. The view is simply beautiful. The color of the water is like none I have ever seen before. We used the kayaks regularly to cross the bay to Man 'O War Cay and walked for miles. Only once did we see anyone else over there. A sea turtle, rays, juvenile lemon sharks, and a nurse shark were all sighted in front of the house. The villas were the cleanest vacation rentals we have ever had, and are stocked with every needed amenity. The emphasis is really on the outdoors and the water, but the villas have everything you need, and if there is something you are missing, Charlie and his kind family will graciously attempt to find it for you. Highly recommend. Thank you for your many kindnesses, Charlie.
The location is amazing - the beach is on the doorstep and exploring outer Cays is a kayak ride away or just sit back relax. We'll visit again!
This was our second time staying at the villa and thoroughly enjoyed our week on the island. The view from the property is fabulous, the villa is well maintained, and Charlie is a wonderful host. On this trip we saw a lot of sea life right from the property including a sea turtle that was hanging around, 2 dolphins, several stingrays, small sharks and a variety of fish. We used the kayaks daily to get to the sand bar at low tide, Man-O-War Cay, and to eat lunch at Haulover Bay Bar & Grill. My husband and father-in-law went fishing and lobstering one day and we took the boat fishing that afternoon. The beach in Forbes Hill is easy to get to, wonderful for swimming, and we were pretty much the only ones there the couple times we visited. Be sure to check out Santana's and Tropic Breeze for lunch or dinner and pick up a couple of rum cakes at Mom's Bakery next to Santana's. We plan to stay at Bay View Vacation Rentals again on a future winter vacation!
It does not get any better than this! The location is fabulous, we woke up everyday, in awe of the beautiful colors of the water. The villa was well cared for and extremely clean. It had air conditioned, cable tv, and wifi which kept our two teenage kids extremely happy after a full day of being out on the water exploring the island.
Charlie our host was extremely gracious, and was always willing to help, or share is knowledge of what to do and where to go.
We are already thinking of when we can plan our next trip back, and look forward to seeing Charlie and his wife again!
