This was our first trip to Abaco. It's always tough for us to decide where to stay when we haven't been to an island before. So many listings, so many beaches, so little time! 🙂 We chose Casuarina Point because it looked to be the closest to Marsh Harbour out of Dorian's destruction and we didn't want to rent a place that might not even be there anymore! We chose Casuarina Sea Breeze because it was within our budget and the pictures looked really nice! We definitely rented the right place. We stayed in the West Breeze, but I think the East Breeze is an identical flip flop to the West. The house, the beach, and the hosts were amazing! We've rented several VRBO's before, but never one that is so well organized, labeled and helpful with maps, guides, etc... And, if it's not labeled or you have a question, Janice and Bob are just a phone call away! Oh, and everything is so CLEAN and the place is a beautiful as the pictures make it look. The kitchen is well stocked, as well as the bathrooms with clean new towels and the beds look brand new. I'd say the mattress is medium soft. Not super soft, but not hard as a rock either. I slept well every night, especially after a long day of playing! They have every toy you could imagine. SUPs (2), Kayaks (2 singles and 2 doubles). Even two boogie boards (but there are no waves! Haha). Oh, and did I mention the 16' Skiff? I know it's not a toy, but we used it to check out the blue hole and small islands around the sound and did some snorkeling off of it too. I don't fish, but I saw other folks taking their Skiffs out with fishing poles. I'm told that at low tide and no waves are perfect bone fishing days. As for the beach. Right out of story book! Perfect, powder soft sand and very little waves, if any at all. At low tide, there is a sand bar that arches from the east end of Casuarina beach to the west end that is about shin deep that you can walk (I think it's about a mile walk). I found a couple of Sand Dollars out there when I walked it. I think you can walk 500 plus yards straight out from the house before even getting into waist deep waters (at low tide). They talk about no-see-ums and mosquitos when it's not breezy but we never experienced that as there was always a cool breeze blowing. We did put bug spray on just to be sure and I think I only got bit once in the 5 days we were there. Janice and Bob, thank you! We had a wonderful stay at your place. We'll be back again!

We just got home from staying 8 nights at this beautiful property, right on the beach! We've stayed in Casuarina 3 times before at different properties. We can't stop talking about how great Casuarina Breeze was for us. Every amenity was perfect and it was so well appointed from all the beach toys, kayaks, paddle boards, beach towels, washer/dryer, etc. The kitchen had every tool you could think of. I even made my husband's birthday cake! Janice and Bob - thank you for all the special touches and excellent communication. We'll be back, for sure!

Bob and Janice, Cannot thank you enough for making our quick vacation as wonderful as it was! Have never had such amazing gracious hospitality on vacation! From the perfect house that bar none is better outfitted than any vacation rental we’ve ever stayed in, to Bob’s over-the-top generosity teaching my son to operate the outboard boat (life experience!). We had a great lunch at Pete’s Pub, a wonderful day of island hopping with Captain Mark out of Treasure Cay, and enjoyed every second boating, and snorkeling right out-front finding giant starfish and sand dollars. A wonderful vacation we won’t soon forget!

Bob and Janice, My family and the Doc just returned home from Abaco. We all had a great time! Your beach house is awesome! We explored Abaco and spent a lot of time just sitting on that beautiful beach. I cannot remember when our family has had such a wonderful vacation. Thank you for the privilege of staying in your beach home - we all stated we would return someday!
What a delightful week! Our party of two couples just spent a week staying in and completely enjoying Bob and Janice’s Seas Breeze East cottage at Casuarina Point. After stocking up on groceries and a few adult beverages and making the short trip from the airport, we soon found ourselves on island time, with the shoreline only a few steps from the back deck of the cottage! The house is beautifully decorated in Bahama beach décor and the furniture and modern appliances made it very easy to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully appointed. A washer and dryer were available and we used them to keep our beach and fishing clothes fresh. While we elected to eat most evening meals out, we did buy groceries and made our breakfasts and most lunches at the house. Local fish and shellfish are available through Bob and Janice’s contacts. It didn’t hurt that Jake’s Food Truck was just a block or so up the street serving incredible lunches and dinners showcasing local fish and cuisine! Janice and Bob could not have been more gracious and helpful to us in setting up our Abaco adventure. They directed us to favorite beaches, shelling areas close to the cottage, places to buy groceries and mementoes, and told us a lot of island lore. Hurricane Dorian’s impact on Abaco and Marsh Harbour was severe, but it is bouncing back, and Casuarina Point was undamaged and remains beautiful. There are plenty of kayaks, paddle boards and beach toys for families to enjoy and they keep a couple of skiffs with outboards for guests use, as well. We hired local guides for fly fishing for bonefish on two days and that is a great way to meet some local folks and to see some amazing wildlife and out of the way places around the island. We can’t wait to go back!

Another wonderful week at Casuarina Sea Breeze. The perfect place for everyone’s taste. The beach could well be a private one, the beach traffic is next to none. The accommodations are a combination of Bahamas Beach Chic and Country Comfort. There is nothing lacking in the well stocked kitchen, from a gourmet meal to a bbq, everything is there. Each time we go to Abaco we find something we have not done before. The boat is a few feet from the deck for a snorkel dive, fishing, or a sunset cruise. Beach combing at low tide is divine. As a beach bum and an adventure junkie there is something for both of us. The only bad thing is, you have to leave, and the best is you have to come back.

Our trip to Casaurina Point was nothing less than a perfect week in paradise! It would be difficult not to enjoy such a low-key, quiet place on an amicable island like Abaco!! We were well cared for by locals and had little left to want from the house. We’re already planning to return if we can manage next year. Since I got home to Wyoming, I have dreamed of little else! I came home refreshed & inspired to paint the beautiful blue waters and purple sunsets we saw every day. How lucky we were to stay at Janice & Bob's slice of island heaven!

Our trip to Abaco and Casuarina Sea Breeze was a welcome destination to get away from our cold northern winter! We brought our mother along and even at 85 she had a wonderful time seeing Abaco, visiting the out islands by ferry and taking in all of the great Bahamian cuisine. The beach walks and being able to enjoy the wonderful sunrises and sunsets were especially a treat. The Breezes are equipped with everything you would find in your home for preparing everything to include your catch of the day. The guest accommodations of being able to settle in for the week and have everything available were way beyond our expectations. Many games were available for family enjoyment with a variety of books for relaxed beach reading. While on Abaco, you should go over to Pete’s Pub. The food was great and and harbor setting was very calming.

We enjoyed ringing in the New Year at Casaurina Sea Breeze - how could you not, with such a comfortable temperature, beautiful and clean beaches and striking aqua water. We stayed in the West Breeze, which is absolutely lovely, perfectly furnished and very comfortable. The paddle board and sea kayak provide hours of entertainment just outside your beach-side sliding door. The deck overlooking the calm water is the perfect spot for appetizers and drinks at the end of the day. We enjoyed one afternoon riding the ferry to one of the out islands, finding plenty of delicious food and fun shopping. We also had a great time driving around Abaco investigating the area and enjoying local cuisine and gift shopping. Don’t miss Pete’s Pub, which isn’t a far drive from Casaurina Sea Breeze. The West Breeze is perfect for a couples get-a-way, a family vacation or for larger group if you wish to book both units. Like they say “it’s always better in the Bahamas”!

It is always better in the Bahamas says it all for us. Our stay as Casuarina Sea Breeze was absolutely amazing. The beach from the beach house which is right out the sliding glass doors has one of the most beautiful views of white sand & crystal clear water. The sunrise & sunsets from the view of the beach house is some of the best we have ever seen. The owners, Janice & Bob were very helpful in helping us plan our vacation with lots of information & ideas on what to do during our stay. The beach house is very spacious with our favorite being the sunroom & beautiful deck area. We enjoyed cooking the catch of the day in the kitchen which is very well thought out to provide you with anything you would ever need. Our favorite things that we did during our stay was island hoping, deep sea fishing, relaxing on the beach & using the paddle boards & kayaks that were also included with the beach house. We also enjoyed walking the beach everyday with most days not seeing many people in either directions. This by far was our best vacation ever. We are all ready planning another vacation to take our friends & we definitely will be staying at Casuarina Sea Breeze.
