Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Abaco Palms is the featured property of Abaco Palms Properties (Please check out our other VRBO listings - all on the same BEAUTIFUL beach!: Kokomo #819533, Camp David #819872, and Calypso #819876) directly on the beautiful Casuarina Point beach - steps from the water's edge (see the picture). Abaco Palms has its own 16’ Carolina Skiff (as do all our properties) – the perfect boat for exploring the islands, blue holes and private beaches of the neighborhood. You will find MANY pictures of the house and information about things to do at Casuarina Point and in Abaco on our web site (Search: 'Abaco Palms'). Please visit it for a complete tour. The Minimum Stay varies, so please inquire. We do not have an online calendar - so please inquire, and I promise to answer as quickly as possible.

Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the large oceanfront deck which features a Vita SPA hot tub, comfortable seating, and stainless steel grill for cooking your fresh catch or Caribbean lobster. Enjoy the beautiful, white-sand private beach from your deck or from hammock under the coconut trees or under the thatched umbrella. Abaco Palms' beach level has a small bathroom and a convenient outside shower. Also outside on the beach level you will find a large sink and counter for cleaning the fish you catch or the many shells you collect.

Abaco Palms can comfortably accommodate a variety of groups.

Abaco Palms has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms plus a beach level bathroom with outside shower and sink for cleaning your fish and shell collection. It features two master bedrooms with king-size beds, private oceanfront balconies, bathrooms with Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs and separate showers, and walk-in closets. The other two bedrooms offer queen-size beds and ensuite bathrooms, and one has an additional single futon for lounging or to be used as an additional bed. Each bedroom has its own television and each bathroom is fully tiled.

Bone fishing flats are all along the beach and the barrier reef is right out in front. Walk out on the flats and collect sand dollars at low tide. Paddle out in the kayak or paddle board to the small island outcroppings of the reef, or take your own 16-foot Carolina Skiff to explore nearby islands and discover your own private beach.

The many large windows offer spectacular views of the beach, ocean, and small islands in front. The fully-equipped kitchen is set up to handle a crowd and features granite counter tops, an extra ice maker, dishwasher, built in microwave, and large refrigerator. The dining table of Abaco Palms seats eight and there is a dining table for 6 on the deck and additional seating at the bar.

The home features free wireless Internet and Ethernet ports and free local and Internet phones.

As I said above, please check with me for availability. I do not use an online calendar, but I do try to answer every inquiry as quickly as possible - sometimes within minutes. If I am traveling it can take a little longer, but I check for messages all the time. We would LOVE To have you visit our properties!

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 a two bedroom house, Kokomo (#819533), in 2009 and added Camp David (#819873) - a 3 bedroom 3 and 1/2 bath, and Calypso (#819876) - a 4 bedroom 2+bath house in 2013. Our sons are grown now, but they still LOVE to spend family time in Abaco at Casuarina Point. To us it is heaven on earth!

Kathy Heacock purchased this house in 2005

Why Kathy Heacock chose Bahamas

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 - we have 4 that the main house and guest house share. We moor a 16' Carolina Skiff 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. 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 12 kayak, 6 paddle board, and 3 knee paddle board 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!

Perfect Paradise Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a PERFECT vacation at Abaco Palms- the location, the house, the amenities fit the bill for a week's getaway with our friends. We loved the ability to walk right out onto the beach, go fishing, boating, paddling, walking, and just relaxing- all at our fingertips. The house was excellent for four couples with plenty of room for entertaining. Kathy and Gary are gracious hosts who were superb at communicating with us. We can't say enough about how wonderful they are!! Kathy provided very detailed information about the Abacos, fishing spots, guides, caterers, and local watering holes. If we had known how delicious our catered meal by Debbie was going to be, we would have booked her for many more during our stay! We truly had one of the most memorable, relaxing, fun vacations ever. We can't wait to come back with our friends and families.

Spring Vacation at Abaco Palms

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Abaco Palms home was amazing. The beachfront home is spacious and fully equipped with everything you can think of. Just to name a few of the toys included are kayaks, paddleboards, a skiff and snorkeling equipment. The beach is breathtaking and since the Casuarina Point community is very small and secluded you have the beach almost to yourself with miles of walking for beachcombing.

We saw schools of bonefish right on the beach. My teenage son caught one on a fly rod while paddleboarding. He was thrilled.

The owners have paid great attention to detail in every way as their objective is for your enjoyment of this special property. My family can't wait to go back again soon.

First of all, I would recommend this home to anyone. Everything you would need or want, Kathy had already thought of and it was there. We've stayed at many homes and this was, by far, one of the most beautiful ones. It doesn't hurt to have a four-mile beach behind the house either. The view from the house is absolutely spectacular. Thanks, Kathy, for being such a great hostess. We will be back!

Wedding Celebration Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We planned a week-long wedding celebration at Casuarina Point with our ceremony being held at one of the Abaco Palms properties, Camp David. The first time we visited Kathy's houses in 2014 we KNEW we would be back. We had the wedding of a lifetime and we could not be happier that we got to share it with our family and friends with all of Abaco's greatness. Camp David provided the perfect setting for our wedding celebration. Kathy and Gary were gracious and offered help with planning and coordination. They went above and beyond!

60th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic, memorable, extraordinary, vacation. Traveled with my family to celebrate a 6oth birthday - - didn't want to leave. First, the owner Kathy is a gem. She and her husband have put together a stunning house that is meticulously maintained and perfectly appointed. She left out no detail, from a book with tide charts to an entire binder with every conceivable need while you are staying in the Abacos. She truly made the trip amazing. Second, the house is awesome! Seven people shared it comfortably. The back deck overlooking the most beautiful beach and ocean you can imagine (sitting in the hot tub enjoying the view wasn't bad either). The ground level patio with fish cleaning station, hot outdoor shower, kayaks, paddle boards, every thing you would need. Cooking meals in the well appointed and homey kitchen. Everything was outstanding. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime vacation, with friends or family., book Abaco Palms!. Amazing property, amazing owners.

50th Birthday Celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had. We were 3 couples all reaching 50 and we considered chartering a yacht for the week but this turned out way better. The back porch is amazing and the ocean was like a postcard. We were all so glad we chose this house as it fit us perfectly. We rented a van to go into Marsh Harbour and though it was a good 20 minute drive... we planned excursions for every other day so as to allow plenty of time to chill. The beds were super comfy, the AC was great, the outdoor shower and hot tub were awesome.. and the whole experience was just a blessing! We chartered a large catamaran with "Bruce" at sailtheabacos.com. What a fantastic day of snorkeling and sightseeing. We also went to Hopetown one day and rented bikes. Fly fishing can't be beat as well. We topped off the week with an incredible, artful cuisine from chef Antonio of the Oasis restaurant. He and his staff came to the house for a meal we won't soon forget! Can't wait to come back to this paradise in Abaco. The Heacocks truly thought of everything to make this an unforgettable vacation destination!!
