We had a wonderful time swimming in the pool here, but most of all swimming in the little ocean pools created by the giant rocks in the water on the beach just beyond our room. And we had the beach all to ourselves almost all the time!
For us, the accomodations were so satisfying, we barely needed to go anywhere else on this our third visit to the island..
I do need to mention a couple of things that took away from a perfect 5.0.... At night, the 24 hour Shell station across the street can be a bit noisy with traffic coming and going. Also, ( and this is NOT a big deal) you have to actually walk out to and down the road a little to access the beach as there is no access from the property itself. (unless you want to scramble down a foliage covered little cliff - which would probably be frowned on by the management!)
I'm getting "home"-sick just talking about it! Can't wait to go back!!
Update On Jul 05, 2010: There simply is not a better place to stay on the Garden Isle at this price point. Having the ability to cook your own meals saves you a good deal of money together with having your own private laundry facilities. But the absollute best part of the Bayview IS the view! Step out on your lanai for morning coffee and enjoy the breathtaking view of aquamrine water and azure sky. Ahhhhh. Can't wait to go again!!
