    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bayview Cottage. The bay at the front of the house was a great source of adventure for the children. The views were beautiful. The cottage had we needed for our week away and was well equipped and nicely furnished. It was easy to get to all the places that we wanted to across the island. We would love to come back again.”
