Happy New Year from Abaco!


Beginning a new year is a great time to stop and reflect on all we are thankful for, and we are thankful for our past & current guests, our friends, and followers.  This post is several days late, and we have been in Abaco since December 27th, but I wanted to take a few pictures at Casuarina to include in this post, and yesterday was my first opportunity when we had a turn-over.  We have had a FULL HOUSE for the holidays – a FUN, very active family who booked guides, cooks, and housekeepers, and dined out many times – a GREAT boost to the Casuarina Point/Abaco community and economy!

South Abaco feels normal.  Everything we need or want is available now, with Maxwell’s Supermarket open and fully stocked.  Here are a few pictures from the deck of Calypso.  The sun was behind a cloud, so not the BEST pictures, but I was not there for very long.

The poinsettias that Julian planted bloomed for the holidays!


We still have a few openings in January & February, and more openings after that, so please put Abaco, as a vacation spot, back on your radar, and we would appreciate it if you tell your friends about us, too.

We wish you all a happy, healthy, prosperous year.

I will close with a few scenes from Schooner Bay.  The first one shows Casuarina Point in a distance as it is viewed from Lookout Point on the Iron Shore at Schooner.

The community that is behind the rocks in the picture is Casuarina Point.

One thought on “Happy New Year from Abaco!”

  1. Kathy,
    Just getting around to reading your post for the New Year! AS a part of the family who was there for the holidays, I must say we are all still floating on Cloud Nine after a truly magical trip to Casuarina. As you know, we rented all of your homes and most of us stayed for a month thru Christmas and New Years with friends and family coming and going. We were so comfortable in your homes–well appointed and maintained! We fished–bottom, deep sea and fly, went diving, spearfishing, collected sea glass and shells galore (on your beach and in the local area), searched for turtles (and found a lot), cooked, dined out, had a chef, explored and simply enjoyed walking on the beach every day. Your staff could not have been more helpful and by the time we left, we had made friends with not only your two legged neighbors but some four legged ones as well– we all miss Trixie and Maia!

    To all who have never been there, the area is in good shape as the hurricane spared south of Marsh Harbor for the most part. We rented cars and explored areas we had never been to before– and that is saying a lot since we owned in the Abacos for over 50 years! We will be back very soon!
