Kokomo: 2 bedroom/2 bath - directly on a beautiful beach with clear, calm water
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 added Camp David, a 3 bedroom 3 and 1/2 bath, and Calypso, a 4 bedroom 2+bath house in 2013. Our sons are grown now and 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 2009
Why Kathy Heacock chose Cherokee
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. Kokomo 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!

Amazing vacation spot
We loved our stay at Kokomo!! It was everything we expected AND SO MUCH MORE!! Kathy, thank you for sharing your beautiful home and for all of your helpful information! We will be coming back... SOON!!
We spent a relaxing week at Kokomo in early June. We have rented many houses and condos in the US, Europe and even New Zealand. This is by far the best equipped of all we have rented. Kathy and Gary have furnished this house with everything you need for your vacation – lots of beach towels, dishes and cooking equipment, basic condiments, cleaning supplies, and more. The house and amenities are exactly as portrayed on the website. We enjoy cooking and only ate out once. On Gary’s recommendation, we at lunch at Pete’s Pub at Little Harbour and had the best fish sandwiches ever. Having dinner on our deck overlooking the water was a better view than any restaurant. We purchased excellent fresh fish at the Fish Market by the harbor in Marsh Harbour (fantastic crawfish and red snapper) and grilled it on the gas grill. We enjoyed using the boat provided at Kokomo to explore the local area. The internet connection was good and was helpful for looking up local information. The information and help we received from Kathy and Gary before and during the trip was exceptional. We were happy they were on the island while we were there and enjoyed getting to know them both. The house is in excellent condition. When we had a minor issue with a ceiling fan, Gary was there immediately to fix it for us. We can’t say enough good about them and Kokomo. We hope to return!
Paradise is the only way to describe Kokomo.
We had an exceptional stay and couldn't have asked for anything better; it was the perfect place to unwind. Outfitted to satisfy every need, you can do as much as you want or as little. The housekeepers went out of their way to look after us as did the property managers. We felt truly spoiled and are already thinking of our next trip back and this time for a longer period.
This Should Be The VRBO Template
I have to commend you on what a great place you have and maintain.
We utilize VRBO extensively. And we have become accustomed to norms and "what to expect" from the average VRBO host.
Your place should be a template as a sterling example.
Upon acquiring our rental car, we went to Maxwell's and loaded up, including essentials such as paper products, ice, spices, etc. WRONG! You had nearly every sundry and dry good we purchased. And the ice machine worked flawlessly.
Your book is an excellent guide and is specific and easily tabulated to find instructions and/or notes.
My wife's favorite "toy" was the kayak. Mine was the hammock. We enjoyed Pete's, golfed a lovely round at Winding Bay and had an excellent hogfish sandwich at the Sandpiper Inn (Schooner Cove).
We can't say enough of the view. The color of the water is stunning. Just to walk in the turquoise water was restorative. The starfish only added to this "heavenly" delight.
Of note, we did not use any a/c. The wind was too delightful. No television either. The internet and VOIP phone was used, in the mornings, to communicate with the office.
The hot-tub was enjoyed. We left some groceries for the house keepers. Stripped the bed and washed towels, as per your detailed instructions.
Again, thank you so very much. We have referred your website to many family and friends.
Kokomo Beach House, Casuarina Point, Abaco
Wonderful beach house, perfect for two couples with independent en suite bedrooms, separated by a spacious kitchen and living room area. Great porch facing the white sand beach with hot tub for outdoor relaxation. Great swimming beach area with bone fish flats right out the front door!
Great family vacation
Kokomo was a great house for 2 couples and 2 small children. The house is directly on the beach with a fabulous view and a great porch (where we spent most of our time with the kids). We traveled there with a 7 month old and a 2 year old and the house worked perfectly for us. House was well equipped and had everything we needed. Kathy was very prompt answering questions and knew all the spots to go for anything we needed. Fun was had by all and we hope to return again.
