About Kathy Heacock

My husband and I first visited Abaco and Casuarina Point in 1996. We were hooked! We vacationed there with our 3 sons and decided to purchase property and build our dream, beach home - Abaco Palms, in 2005. We built Kokomo in 2009 and built Camp David, a 3 bedroom 3 and 1/2 bath, in 2013. We also added Calypso to our rentals in 2013. It is a 4 bedroom 2+ bath, charming beach house, but we did not originally build Calypso. It was built in 2004. We purchased it in December 2012, and we remodeled it before adding it to our Casuarina rentals. Our now grown sons still LOVE to spend family time in Abaco at Casuarina Point. To us it is heaven on earth!

Kathy Heacock purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathy Heacock chose South Abaco

Casuarina Point is a unique location. We enjoy the beautiful, crystal clear shallow water in front of the house, and we are protected by the reef out front that is so fun for snorkeling and fishing. There are many uninhabited islands to explore - private beaches for swimming and picnics - blue holes to explore - bone fish to catch - nature to discover - the list can go on and on! It is a great location for kayaking - Our Abaco Palms Properties have 13 kayaks - 4 tandem, 7 adult, and 2 child size that work for up to 130 pounds. There are a few at each of our 4 houses, and you can borrow from the other houses if you need a different combination. We also have paddle boards - 7 stand up and 3 knee boards so far. Calypso come with a 16' Carolina Skiff - moored in front of the house and it is perfect for exploring the area. This is not possible at most ocean front beach houses - the reef's protection makes it possible. Our white sand beach stretches for miles - a perfect walking, exploring beach. Try it - you will be hooked, too!

What makes this house unique

All of our rentals include use of 16' Carolina Skiff. (We have 4 houses and 5 boats - so we have a backup if there is ever a problem.) There is a boat moored in front of each house for your use to go fishing, snorkeling, or exploring the many small islands in the area. There is a Vita SPA hot tub on each deck, and 13 kayaks, 6 paddle boards, and 3 knee paddle boards for our guests use for exercise and exploring. The houses and decks have spectacular views -and you walk right out on the beautiful, white sand beach with crystal clear water. It is a setting that can't be beat!

Notes:
Calypso is on the beach at Casuarina Point, a small community south of the main Abaco settlement of Marsh Harbour. Casuarina Point is a quiet neighborhood, but town is very accessible down the Great Abaco Highway. You have dining options to the north and south and grocery options from the major supermarket in Marsh Harbour to the Organic farm at Schooner Bay. Pete's Pub at Little Harbour is a MUST! Fine dining is available at the Delphi Club (about 8 miles south), The Sandpiper Inn at Schooner Bay (13 miles south) - or have Trio Catering prepare your gourmet meal onsite at Casuarina! You might also enjoy having a local chef come to prepare local favorites at your house. Sushi delivery is available, too! Calypso comes with a 16' Carolina Skiff for exploring the neighborhood and small surrounding islands, and we also have kayaks and paddle boards for our guests. Casuarina Point is a PERFECT Paddle Boarding destination!

Beautiful location. Lots to do. Ocean is shallow during low tide so that even young kids can play

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fun Private Beach House

  • 5 of 5

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!

Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great house, great owners, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise and perfect

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

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!
