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 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 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. Camp David comes 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!

We had such a wonderful time at this property. The pictures posted are exactly what you see when you get there. It’s a spectacular view of the ocean and only steps away. The owner Kathy responded very quickly to any questions I had. Highly recommend this property. We can’t wait to go back!!!
Camp David is a Perfect Getaway Retreat
What can I say that hasn't already been said in other reviews about Kathy Heacock's properties? It is as advertised and more. If you are looking for a place to relax by the ocean and get away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place. We have rented properties from Cape Cod to Key West, California, Hawaii and 13 Caribbean Islands. We have returned to various places, but never to the same property. However, we will absolutely return to Camp David next winter.
If they rewrote the 1980's book,In Search of Excellence, they need to include Kathy's Abaco Palms Properties for how to run a vacation rental business. We own two rentals properties and our stay at Camp David has inspired us to upgrade our rentals. For example, she provides five boats for four rental properties...who else would do that??? I own a boat. It is very expensive to maintain, when used properly. If you rent one of her properties and use one of the boats, please take note of where all of the sand bars are located at low tide before venturing out. I witnessed two different boats drive right over the sand bar near low tide traveling at fast speeds which damaged the motors.
Kathy's customer service is second to none. She provides a tremendous amount of information regarding the property, as well as, things to do in Abaco and restaurants to visit. We highly recommend the Sandpiper Inn and to utilize Debbie Burrows for dine-in experiences, her lobster salad was awesome and she is a very nice person.
Loved staying at this house
Loved the house and ocean view!!! The kids loved all the boat activities and the hot tub!!!
This is a beautiful, richly appointed, 3 bed, 3.5 bath beach house 30-40 yards from the most beautiful water you will ever see. And two of the bedrooms are master suites!! My wife and I and her brother and his wife spent 10 days here and had a very quiet and relaxing time. Kathy and Gary Heacock were the consummate hosts. They took care of our every need. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. In fact, we left the island feeling like they had become a part of our family. The bay in front of the beach house is like a giant swimming pool. It is 3-5 ft deep to about 150 yards out depending on the tide. Great for swimming, looking for shells, or snorkeling. Fishing was fabulous. Did I mention that a Carolina Skiff comes with the rental! We used the boat every day and caught enough fish to eat the whole time we were there. There are also paddle boats, canoes, etc. for your use. I could go on and on so just check it out for yourselves! We WILL be back!!
Perfect Relaxing Vacation!
We have traveled for the last 4 years with another couple and a teenager or two. This year we chose Abaco and my husband found Camp David. Fishing is very important to him, especially bone fishing (fly). Casuarina Point is the right place! And Camp David was the perfect villa for a party of 5. Casuarina Point is about 20-25 minutes south of the airport in Marsh Harbor - a rental car is a must. Kathy will provide all suggestions and instructions of where to rent, shop, eat, fish, etc. A stop at the grocery in Marsh Harbor, and the liquor store is recommended before heading to Camp David.
The house is very thoughtfully designed, all on one floor. There are two master bedroom en suites on opposite sides of the great room. The beach-side of the house is fully windowed and wow...what a view! The third bedroom is on the street-side of house with twins and en suite. All bedrooms have TV's. The kitchen is nicely equipped and proportioned. It even has a bar icemaker which is a plus! Kathy provides recommendations for in-home cooking and we strongly recommend Debbie Burrows! What a sweet person who prepares delicious Bahamian fare! Lobster tails, fish, chicken, conch chowder, conch fritters, rum cake, cole slaw (to die for) & the BEST key lime pie....you won't be disappointed! And have her come prepare your meal at Camp David!
The porch overlooking the beach got a lot of use! Coffee in the morning...hot tub relaxing during rain or after coming off the beach (showered first)...sunset cocktail time and after-dinner star gazing. Ahhh...
The beach has powdery white sand that stretches for a great walk in either direction. Because of the location, the water is very shallow and full of sea life! Sand dollars, queen conch's, sea stars, star fish, lots of fish...you'll love it! The skiff was very much put to use for exploring and fishing!
We visited Great Guana Cay on Sunday for the Nippers BBQ Sunday Funday - quite a party. Ferry service is out of Marsh Harbor. We also visited Hopetown on Elbow Cay & Man-O-War Cay via charter boat. Treasure Cay is a beautiful beach with azure water - try Coco's for casual lunch/drinks and enjoy the beach!
We were at Camp David 9 days and didn't see and do it all. Most importantly, we relaxed and my husband bone fished with a guide. Can't say enough nice things about Kathy & Gary - they really go out of their way to make your trip enjoyable! Can't wait to return!
No place more relaxing than Campy David!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Kathy who runs the coordination of booking. I'm so thankful I found her and Camp David! We had a five day/four night "ladies getaway" stay in December. The customer service was perfect from booking through leaving, I promise, no detail was left unattended. I do a lot of traveling and this was the best and most personal experience I've encountered.
The house itself was steps from the beach, extremely modern, and so comfortable! A big bonus for us was having the kayaks, paddle boards, and boat as we utilized all of them every day, all in great condition! We also utilized the hot tub and hammock every day, talk about relaxing! It felt like you had the beach to yourself, sure there are others out and about, but this is a friendly and low-key area to enjoy.
I hope we get to have another stay sometime in the near future :-)
Casuarina Point is a GREAT Paddle Boarding destination, and we provide the paddle boards!
