Thank you SO MUCH for your interest! :)
Each of our homes comes with use of a 16' Carolina Skiff (we have 5 boats - for 4 houses - so we even have a backup), paddle boards, kayaks - and they each have a hot tub/SPA on the deck.
Calypso is on a beautiful, white sand beach with crystal clear, shallow, calm water - PERFECT for children of all ages!
Calypso rents for $5000 for a week, and additional nights are $700. If you stay less than a week, the nightly rate is $800 - with a minimum stay of 4 nights. The rates I am quoting are the total charge - including taxes, cleaning fees, etc. If you wish to pay with a credit card there is a fee to cover that, but most people send me a check.
25% is due at the time of booking, and your balance is due 60 days before your trip.
If you have to cancel for any reason, and I am able to rebook your dates, I will refund what you have paid.
This was our first time renting in the Bahamas and we really enjoyed our trip. The house was great and well furnished with everything we needed. The location was fabulous, especially for people traveling with little kids. Kathy was quick to respond with answers to our questions both before and during our trip. The whole reservation process was well organized. It was nice that we had the keys beforehand along with Kathy's helpful packet of information. She thinks of everything and made great suggestions for rental cars and boat trips! We were sad that we did not get to meet Kathy during our trip since she was away but we were left in good hands with her caretaker, Judie, who was just down the street. We would highly recommend renting from Kathy.
Just returned from a week at Calypso to celebrate my father-in-law's 70th birthday. We had 11 people in the house (6 adults/5 kids) and it was a perfect spot for our get together. We had additional family members rent Kokomo which is right next door. The house is great and we made quick use of the skiffs, kayaks and paddle boards. We used Kathy's info on how to find the 4 reefs close by and spent a lot of time snorkeling and spearing fish. We also walked to the sandbar east of the house at low tide which was a great place to swim. Being July, it was hot but the house has great air conditioning in each of the rooms. The wrap around porch was a great place to sit in the morning and evenings and we explored the neighborhood and fished in the canal multiple times. We used Debbie Burrows (contact info listed on Abaco Palms website) to make us meals (14 people) two nights we were there. She is an absolute delight and very reasonable in terms of cost. She delivered the food right to the house and everything was absolutely incredible. She made all of the Bahamian staples and the key lime pie was a favorite. Kathy's website is a great source of information. We arrived on a Sunday and were able to navigate to the open grocery store and liquor store based on the info she has on the website. In addition, we found the bakery, fish market and ferry to Hopetown by using her detailed directions/instructions. All in all, it was a great stay and Kathy was quick to respond to any and all inquiries. We hope to be back again soon for another visit!
We had 2 families with pre-teen and teen-aged children and this house was perfect for us! We couldn't think of anything that was missing. Boat for snorkeling on the reefs close to the house and adventures further out. Paddle boarding and kayaking, walks to the sandbar for tons of starfish, soaking in the hot tub, and the views in the sky at night from our private beach are too amazing for words. More than enough kitchen gadgets and dishes for our dual family dinners we made every night. Can't say enough great things about the house and the hospitality!
Amazing spot - well maintained and easy to work with the management team. Many resources provided to prepare for the trip and so well organized. Home is situated on great stretch of beach, lots of toys and views are incredible. A great value and just an amazing spot to park it and relax, play, fish, recreate, and enjoy one of the finest spots in Abaco. Awesome trip and experience.
I recently stayed for a third time at Calypso house with Kathy and Abaco Palms. Our stay was incredible as usual. What was supposed to be a two week stay was interrupted by hurricane Matthew. My group had to leave to avoid the storm but Kathy was great about rescheduling us and having us come back at a convenient time to finish the second half of our stay. Kathy is great about communicating and answering any questions that come up about the trip. She is also very accomodating and helpful. For instance, last minute we asked to use a second boat for the week and Kathy accommodated us . The location of all Abaco Palms houses are incredible and work great for a group of guys who want to expolore the water or for a family with little kids who need to put kids down for naps then sit on the beach with the baby monitor and a drink.
Our family of 8 stayed at Calypso for about a week in July 2017. It was the perfect, most relaxing vacation. The home is well-stocked, and the view can't be beat. The water is steps away from the house, and it is perfect for young kids since it is so calm. We used the skiff multiple times/day to explore the surrounding area. Between the paddle boards, skiff, kayaks, snorkeling gear, there is plenty to do. A rental vehicle is definitely recommended to get to/from town. We took a ferry from Marsh Harbor to Guana Cay one day, but honestly would probably not do it again since we enjoyed being at Calypso so much. Kathy was a dream to work with. She is so responsive and truly thinks of every detail when renting her home. We are already planning a return trip and won't even consider staying anywhere else!
I thought our house was awesome! I really enjoyed all the options they had available for water sports!!! I also was impressed with the sound proofing from the deck to the bed rooms for you and mom!! Our room was also great having our own bathroom and porch! I would totally go to that house again! And let's not forget to add how helpful and sweet the people were that we rented from! They were a life saver when our van stopped working! Truly awesome people!!! Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at Calypso which was a Fun Private Beach House at Casuarina Point, near Marsh Harbour Bahamas. It was like having our own private resort. We had a beautiful beach right out the back door of our beach house with the use of a motor boat, kayaks, surf boards, paddle boards, and other beach items. 100 yards out was some wonderful snorkeling reefs and many areas to fish. A Hot Tub and hammocks are all available to use. At night the sheer numbers of visible stars in the sky made it difficult to pick out the normal visible consolations. We had 2 couples and one single and plenty of room for all. The property was clean and kept well for a beach house. The owners were fantastic! We were lucky enough to have been there the same time Kathy and Gary were staying a few houses down the beach and they were very warm and welcoming to our family and very helpful during our stay. We with great enthusiasm recommend this property to family, friends or anyone looking to get away for a while. You can either cook, have someone cook for you or visit restaurants North in Marsh Harbour or South at the Sandpiper. Also plan a day trip to Hope Town and visit the lighthouse there. It's a quick ferry ride from Marsh Harbour. We did so much and had such a good time that I could go on and on. 5 Stars from the Blacklidge Family!
Kathy is infinitely helpful and kind. The property is well equipped, clean and big. 10 of us stayed here, cooked our own meals, played games and relaxed. The house is 47 steps from the ocean at low tide. There are paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs and an awesome little motor boat to use.
We were looking for a getaway vacation with our family of 11 - ages 79 to 6. Calypso was perfect. Not a single issue or problem with the cottage or all the toys it comes with. Lots of chairs in the cottage and plenty of beach chairs. Cottage and all it’s amenities are well maintained.
The property offered just about anything you could wish for. It was as described. It was a beautiful place, very relaxing, and the beach was incredible.
