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 when, for instance, we had issues starting a boat engine she allowed us to switch boats immediately as there was one available. 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.
We have fallen in love Casuarina Point on Great Abaco! Abaco Palms are located about 25 minutes south of Marsh Harbor in a tranquil location with a beautiful beach. The water is azure yet full of sea life. We enjoyed the skiff, kayaks & paddleboard, yet found we enjoyed exploring the sandbars and shallows even more. Fishing in this area is excellent, even for the allusive bone fish.
Abaco Palms offers several homes, of which we stayed in Camp David for 9 nights. The house was thoughtfully designed with two master en-suites and a third bedroom with twins. The large great-room overlooked the beach with an amazing beachfront covered porch with ample seating, dining area & large hot tub.
The beach is clean with white powdery sand and the ocean is very shallow. We met other vacationers and locals on the beach each day. Even when windy, the ocean is not too rough due to the reef & shallow water. The beach is somewhat protected due to its shape/location.
Kathy is great to work with and truly wants your vacation to be the best. She provides many suggestions for restaurants, bars, attractions - even GPS coordinates for your hand-held to find the best reefs/beaches!
There are several Cays that are a short ferry ride from Marsh Harbor that make for great day-trips. However, we found ourselves glued to our own beach most days and enjoyed fishing and beachcombing.
Having been home from our vacation for a few days, we're already thinking of our next visit!
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 and a skiff. 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.
The owner's have paid attention to detail in every way and their objective is your enjoyment. Can't wait to go back agin.
We LOVED Camp David! This property was definitely the highlight of our trip. There were so many amenities that we had no idea would be such a hit. The shallowness of the water is just glorious! Our grandkids grabbed the kayaks and paddle boards and headed out hundreds of yards. We knew they were safe and loved watching them taking it all in. My favorite thing to do on vacation is to go shelling. My granddaughter and I went every day. It was amazing! Our boys loved fishing and caught a handful of fish - one big enough for dinner! They also loved the hot tub! Especially the baby- he loved splashing his brothers and sister. The interior of the home was beyond my expectations. The beautiful quality of furniture, comfortable beds and four bathrooms!!! The kitchen was ideal and we ate dinner there almost every night. The owner, Kathy was amazing! We can't wait to take the rest of our grandkids back!
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!
