About Owner

I AM A PHYSICIAN WITH 40 YEARS SAILING EXPERIENCE FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC AND LIVED ABOARD IN THE CARRIBEAN

Owner purchased this House in 1999

Why Owner chose North Abaco

WE CHOSE ABACO BECAUSE OF THE TROPICAL SETTING,GREAT SAILING AND FISHING,MILES OF DESERTED BEACHES,AND MANY NEARBY ISLANDS WELL SUITED FOR DAY SAILING AND GUNKHOLING.

What makes this House unique

THE BEACH IS JUST A FEW STEPS AWAY BUT WE ARE VERY NEAR THE MARINA, RESTARAUNTS, SHOPS, AND STORES.

We loved this house in every way! It was our family's best vacation so far. The kids had plenty to do at the house and around the islands. The house is a perfect set up and it feels like we woke up on a boat without the rocking. The view from every single area in the house is spectacular. We will be coming back next year! Thanks again Susan and Jerry!!

                                                                        The Keefe family has equipped this home just right for the family travelers. All the comforts of home with the best view. Having the pool and hot tub was a perfect addition and wonderful way to end each day. Rooms and baths were private enough that people still had a place to retreat to from the common living and kitchen space. Having beach chairs and coolers for day use was also very helpful. The overall communication from the family and the caretakers made this trip all the more special!!!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

We love having our guests love being there as much as we do. We try hard to keep it special. We hope you return one day. Blessings Always, Susan

                                                                        Amazing, BEAUTIFUL, Wonderful!!

                                                                        Castle Rock is fantactic!! We LOVED it. It's like being on a deserted island white sand beach with every cozy, comfortable thing you need. Every room is facing the sea, very private bedrooms with cable TVs and great bathrooms...and having coffee in bed, with sunglasses on, watching the sunrise over the water was amazing. We loved sitting in the hot tub, day and night...the stars, full moon and sea were just breathtaking. The kitchen is great too...looking at the turquoise sea making meals and relaxing on the beach while the pies baked. Wow. Talk about beach front...it's on the beach!!

                                                                        Thank you for the best vacation ever...everyone had a great time.

                                                                        The six of us enjoyed our stay at Castle Rock very much! Just a few minor details that could be improved on. Such as the Hot Tub, after following the directions it still didn’t work. It did get fixed but took a couple of days. They are most definitely on Island time there & after a couple of days we were too! When we were there the refrigerator was leaking but nothing a towel wouldn’t stop. Several light bulbs were burned out in the lamps, no biggie! We cooked out one night & had to clean the grill before use.The only other thing I would mention is a do not disturb sign. We had several people in & out checking on us. There is a property manager to call if you need anything. Overall our Stay was Fantastic & we are looking forward to our next visit! Love Treasure Cay & Love the People!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Castle Rock and appreciate your feedback. We arrived right after you left. We replaced the refrigerator with a brand new side by side version which is larger with easier storage. The hot tub continues to work well. After talking with you we learned the only issue was the jets. They work only when the pump is running. It tak3s four minutes to come on after restarting. We keep a supply of light bulbs and batteries in a cupboard in the living room. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will one day return to.Castle Rock.

                                                                        Peace, Susan and Jerry

                                                                        Beautiful Setting--but accomadations were not what we expected

                                                                        Scott L.

                                                                        Owners Susan and Jerry are two of the most responsive, friendly, and honest people you will have contact with--very polite and easy to deal with.

                                                                        The pictures look wonderful--but some of the bedrooms are not connected, most furnishings are outdated and in need of repair, updating, and cleaning. There is no central heat and due to our time frame a cold snap hit and we were so cold we had to depart early.

                                                                        The home is listed for sale in Sotheby International for 850K--we were expecting a much different experience.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We are so sorry that you were disappointed with Castle Rock. We do have a mini split with heat pump, heat and air, for the central part of the house and two adjoining bedrooms. We have space heaters for the two end bedrooms. We are at Castle Rock now and will make sure Clint will make future guests aware should the need arise. We hope you found a weather window for your boat to safely return home. Castle Rock is receiving a new side by side refrigerator and stem to stern housecleaning this week. She is already beginning to sparkle! We wish you well and pray that your next family vacation will be richly blessed. Susan and Jerry

                                                                        thomas m.

                                                                        Our family returned two weeks ago from a wonderful stay at Castle Rock over Christmas and New Years. The home had a beautiful view over perfect waters, a private beach, and a well-kept pool. The home has four bedrooms, two with direct door access to the main living room/dining room/kitchen, and one bedroom on either side accessible by the deck outside. The home also has a great washer/dryer room with high functioning equipment. The space worked great for our family of five adults and two small children. The home did come with one Pack and Play, which was great for us.

                                                                        The owner was incredibly responsive to email, even over the holidays. We had a few questions along the way and she would respond immediately and thoughtfully.

                                                                        We also had dinner made for us one evening by Evelyn, who offers her services to everyone who stays at the home. Her prices for cooking were comparable to going out to one of the local restaurants for a full dinner and the ease of having an incredible home-cooked dinner delivered at the time of our choosing was wonderful. I highly recommend taking her up on her offer.

                                                                        We also rented a boat from the nearby marina for a week and found that it was a great way to visit all the nearby cays. Some days we took it out on our own, and other days we used Sam as our guide and that was really wonderful as he could show us all the best spots.

                                                                        Treasure Cay is a beautiful, generally quiet, extremely safe and relaxing place to get away, and this home is a special retreat.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

We treasure our times there and make every effort to have it be special for our guests. Thanks also for the good idea of taking a guide when renting a boat to learn local knowledge and experience the special spots. We thank you again and hope you will one day return to Castle Rock. Blessings to you and your family.
