Our group of eight adults -- all fly fishermen and women -- stayed from May 1-9, 2017 and everyone agrees that we had an absolutely great stay at Abaco Palms. Property owners, Kathy and Gary Heacock, were hands-on all the way, from start to finish, providing plenty of information about the property, where to buy groceries, who to contact for guides, etc. And once on site, they were easily contacted with any questions that came up. The house -- right on the water with a pristine beach -- includes a lower deck for their kayaks and paddle boards, a shower for rinsing, a small bathroom, and an inside storage closet for inner tubes and more. The upper deck has plenty of seating for reading or dining, and the nearby hot tub was very clean. The 4-bedroom/4-bathroom layout was perfect; lots of hot water for showers; dining table comfortably seated eight; well-stocked kitchen with plenty of nice serving pieces and lots of silverware; the washer and dryer were essential since we fished everyday; the living area had plenty of seating. Internet worked well and the cable tv was great, although we mainly used it for background music when we dined. Kathy provides a landline with free local calls which really helped when we had to stay in touch with our local fishing guides. When we made our reservations for the house, the 16' skiff and kayaks seemed like a nice touch, but they turned out to be much more than that: they were perfect for getting to and from the island across the way to fly fish and we kayaked around the area almost every day. The neighborhood, Casaurina Point, is great -- plenty of privacy but not so secluded that we didn't see folks while walking along the beach. You will need transportation. All of our group would highly recommend the property.
Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at Abaco Palms which was a Wonderful 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 Tiki Hut, Large Hot Tub, a hammock 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 3 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!
The cottage was big, bright, clean and comfortable. Ample seating if you have a large group. Can't complain about the views either....especially from the hot tub. Lots of equipment to play with - kayaks, paddle boards, and a fishing skiff. Excellent communication with Kathy, the property owner. She was always quick to reply to emails, very professional, and very accommodating. The cottage had a binder full of information - cottage instructions, maps, tide schedules and what to do/where to go. We will be back!
We just stayed at Camp David for 20 nights on a family vacation. It was amazing! The house was clean and well stocked with anything you could need. Kathy has every detail covered. The beach and boat were great for exploring, the water is calm and clear which was perfect for our smaller children. We all enjoyed the hot tub and all Camp David has to offer. Casuarina Point is a wonderful place for a family to get away. We hope to make his our vacation spot again in the future!
We loved the house and the beach. The rooms were large with amazing view and so nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom. The house did have some spices that we had forgotten and made cooking in so much nicer. The locals were super friendly and helpful. The best part of this vacation and the home was Kathy. She is the best home owner I have ever met. Super friendly and just a pleasure to talk to and is so knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great vacation spot.
Beautiful beach, accommodations, and more!!! Kokomo was thoroughly clean and well-maintained, with gorgeous beach/view, excellent floor plan (privacy for grandparents and adult children plus baby), and every resource we could want for home, beach/water adventures (nice boat, kayaks/canoes, beach towels & children's toys, fishing/snorkling gear, etc.). The Heacocks are genuinely gracious hosts. We look forward to returning to Abaco Palms!!!
What can I say that hasn't already been said in other reviews about Kathy Heacock's properties? It is as advertised and more. If you are looking for a place to relax by the ocean and get away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place. We have rented properties from Cape Cod to Key West, California, Hawaii and 13 Caribbean Islands. We have returned to various places, but never to the same property. However, we will absolutely return to Camp David next winter. If they rewrote the 1980's book,In Search of Excellence, they need to include Kathy's Abaco Palms Properties for how to run a vacation rental business. We own two rentals properties and our stay at Camp David has inspired us to upgrade our rentals. For example, she provides five boats for four rental properties...who else would do that??? I own a boat. It is very expensive to maintain, when used properly. If you rent one of her properties and use one of the boats, please take note of where all of the sand bars are located at low tide before venturing out. I witnessed two different boats drive right over the sand bar near low tide traveling at fast speeds which damaged the motors. Kathy's customer service is second to none. She provides a tremendous amount of information regarding the property, as well as, things to do in Abaco and restaurants to visit. We highly recommend the Sandpiper Inn and to utilize Debbie Burrows for dine-in experiences, her lobster salad was awesome and she is a very nice person.
Our family of 6 adults and a 6 year old boy thoroughly enjoyed our week at Abaco Palms, Feb. 16-23, 2019. The house, its water craft, the beach, and Marsh Harbour all combined to make for an amazing time. It’s located on a lovely beach with sand bars and several small islands in view. There are no resorts in the area, only other homes occupied by tourists and locals, so our neighborhood wasn’t congested or loud and the beach felt quite private. We walked the beach in both directions every day and also on the road behind the house. Abaco Palms was comfortable and well-equipped with beach craft including a small motor boat, and a number of paddle boards and kayaks which we used a lot. The water was relatively shallow, depending on the tide, which was nice for walking and looking for shells. We ate breakfast and dinner at the house and went out for lunch each day. The kitchen was well-equipped, and it was great to have a dishwasher and gas grill. Also a clothes washer and dryer. In the evenings we used the large hot tub. The palapa and hammock were nice, too. . We kept our rental car in the parking spot under an overhang so it stayed cool there in the shade. Kathy Heacock was a joy to work with. She promptly answered all my questions via email, sent a lot of info ahead of time and provided more in a binder in the living room. To celebrate my husband’s 80th birthday we hired Debbie Burrows to cater a dinner. She cooked it at the house and everything was delicious, especially the conch fritters. Thanks, Kathy, for recommending her. We made use of the board games provided and also the wonderful keyboard/piano in the living room. Our son and grandson played it every day. What a bonus to have that. The beds were comfortable and each bedroom had a ceiling fan and its own bathroom. The neighborhood was peaceful at night, great for sleeping. We felt safe there. The people of Abaco were very friendly. Kathy’s property caretakers were great – we met Elmer and Cathy, Rex and Judie, and Julian. Even a man delivering some product from Ace Hardware was so personable and gave us suggestions for restaurants. The whole vibe on the island was laidback and welcoming. We would highly recommend Abaco Palms if you’re looking for a quality property in a quality location for a relaxing beach vacation. We’re hoping to go back. With the snow and ice we’ve had lately in WI, I wish we could be there now!
They two properties I rented were Abaco Palms and Calypso. They were both amazing rentals. The beach views were awesome the use of the 2 boats were amazing made the trip even better. Had some friends find 2 blue holes and they dived them. They said it was amazing to have access to them. Would recommend to rent any property from Kathy she is amazing lady great to deal with. No issues at all with staying at both homes. You are away from town so will need to rent a car to get back and forth for food and lots of beer if you to happen to drink. The sunsets were amazing the water was wonderful. All my friends enjoyed themselves. Again great place to go and rent from some amazing people.
Kokomo was absolutely wonderful! The house was beautiful, comfortable, and had the most amazing view! It was perfect for two couples with 2 masters and each with a beautiful view. Kathy was so amazing and I have rented MANY VRBO rentals and she was by far the most gracious and accommodating. The Casurina Pount area is about 15 miles from town but the drive is easy and no big deal. But if had not needed beer and bread, we probably would have not left this little slice of Heaven! Kathy's recommendations are perfect. JR for bone fishing, Charles for Reef fishing, and Debbie for catering made our week that much more special! We made some great new friends while they shared there paradise and expertise with us. Have fun and enjoy this gem!!
