Calypso is the perfect fisherman’s getaway or family vacation place.

In September 2015 we made several improvements to Calypso, the major one being the extension of the center deck, for star gazing, and the addition of wide steps to the beach and handrails for both sets of steps to the deck from the house.  I think you will agree that it made a BIG difference in the livability and enjoyment of the deck and beach.  We also had concrete poured in the parking area and decking for most of the rest of the area under the house.  We also improved the lighting in on the decks and below. AND…in October 2017 – we extended the deck again and installed a larger hot tub!  Here is a short slide show featuring most of the changes we made.

    Dear Kathy,
    Our stay at Calypso was fantastic! I literally cried when we left! From the champagne in the refrigerator upon arrival, to the gorgeous vistas… we can hardly wait to come again. Thank you for making our 40th birthday week so very special! Your little slice of paradise is second to none!

    My husband, I and 2 other couples recently spent a wonderful relaxing week at Kathy and Gary Heacock’s Calypso. Calypso is a comfortably appointed cottage on the beach at Casurina Point. If you want utter relaxation this is the place to go. We read, waded, used the spa and fished on our own schedules…just delightful. While we mainly self-catered, we did enjoy two wonderful meals out at nearby destinations. Pete’s Pub and Gallery is the place to go for freshly caught fish. I had the trigger fish and it was delicious. The Delphi Club offered a wonderful eight course tasting menu on Friday night that was one of the finest meals i ever had. I can’t speak highly enough about Abaco as a destination and Calypso as a place to stay. I plan to go back next year.

    As so many have said before me, this is a wonderful place to vacation. Gary and Kathy are remarkable host/ess and so generous with their time and spirit for life on Abaco. A special thanks to Gary for introducing me to some local fishing enthusiasts. Casaurina has some good bonefishing locations. A school of smaller Bones and Snapper is often found a few doors east of Calypso in front of the pink house. Further east and around the point, are areas mixed with sand, marl and grass. More and larger bones call this home. Watch for tails on a low tide. You will get one good shot so make it count as these are smart fish! The south and east sides of Duck Cay offer some interesting locations with schools of still larger bones (up to 7lbs) as well as Mutton Snapper and Trigger Fish. There are two smaller islets east of Duck worth exploring. I was told the creek to the west of the house can produce. I recommend unweighted flies with weed guards for working the tails over grass at low tide. Veverka shrimp worked well over sand and marl. When not fishing, Pete’s Pub is a must. For finer dining, The Sandpiper at Schooner Bay is excellent and the proprietor (James) is a fishin’ buff too. Went on guided excursions with Ricardo (out of Sandy Point) and Paul Pinder (out of Abaco Lodge) and both provided lots of action. Met JR, the local guide at Casaurina, on my last day so unfortunately had no opportunity to go with him (but will next year).

    Tight lines!

      Hi Kim –
      I am so sorry that I did not respond to your inquiry. I JUST saw this. We have an inquiry form that most people use and it goes to my email. I never see these requests! I guess I need to start looking for them every day! I usually respond really quickly! I am sorry to tell you that all 4 of our houses are already booked for your requested week. I would love to tell you about everything we offer and the pricing for all our houses through a separate email from my gmail address. Please look for that to follow – and please try us for a future vacation.
      Thank you!
      Kathy

    Dear Kathy & Everyone looking for an Amazing place to go on Vacation!!!! My Family of 9 always vacation in St. Augustine, FL each year because it’s close & affordable. We have been wanting to stay on one of Kathy’s properties since 2009. Finally in 2014 our dream came true!!! As annoying as I was with a million questions, Kathy was patient, pleasant, and always got back to me in a timely manner. I am not the type of person that likes “Touristy”, packed, generic resorts. I loved that our house was private, the beach was private, and there were so many things to occupy the Adults and teenage kids! The fishing boat was amazing!!! Kayaks, Hammocks, Paddle boards, etc. The water is Breath Taking!!!! We could walk forever and still stand in waist deep water and see our feet!! At one end of the beach there was a beautiful shallow area when the tide was low and we found so many gorgeous sea creatures. Beautiful Huge Red Star fish, Live sand dollars in the water that you can’t miss. There was a little drop off that we snorkeled in and found many things….a bike,boat, lawn mower, and lots more- which was kinda cool for us northern Floridians that can’t see our feet in our water. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. We took a ferry and explored Hopetown, which was very cool- beautiful water…a deeper blue, but Gorgeous!! That’s where we snorkeled a lot and found all the “Nemo” fish:) Whem we left we stopped at another island which was amazing also. We can’t wait to go back!! And now we say we are going back to “Our House in Abaco”! Thanks again Kathy for everything!
    We Loved Every Second of it!!!!!
