We give Casuarina Sea Breeze 5 stars. It’s located right on the beach. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The men went fishing every day and caught fish every day. Of course we cooked them, in the well appointed kitchen. Our hosts welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a vase of flowers. Janice & Bob are a wealth of information about the island. Sitting on the porch looking at the ocean was our favorite thing to do, after a day in the sun. We can't wait to visit again! Georgia & Rich, Thermopolis, Wy 4/2022

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! Sarah and Shane 6/2021
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!

Casuarina Sea Breeze was the perfect location for our holiday get away. The house is right on the white sandy beach, with a boat to run around the bay and fish or snorkel. There are sand bars and coves to explore with hardly anyone else on the beach. Janice went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay and for our travel requirements. They have the house equipped with everything you need from puzzles and games to paddle boards. We took a fishing charter on Christmas and had fresh fish for a couple nights, and went to local restaurants the nights we didn’t make ourselves dinner in the well equipped kitchen. We had a great time on Abaco island and loved every minute of our vacation! Igol and Marlee 12/2021

I had seen the beauty of Casuarina on a prior trip and always wanted to make a stay there on a return. Had the great opportunity to book with Janice and Bob in their Sea Breeze cottage and could not of asked for better accommodations. Their west breeze unit was perfect for my friend and I. Everything we needed from cooking items to bedding to beach toys were readily available. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were very comfortable, and the skiff cranked perfectly on the first pull! Starting with check in, Janice communicated every detail we would need upon our arrival and during our stay. Both she and Bob were available to help us any way during our stay. We are especially thankful for their guided boat tour of Cherokee settlement and the surrounding sound! Casuarina point beach has beautiful sand and calm waters. Perfect for when I bring the family back. The southerly view provided all day sun in January. Sunrises and sunsets from the back porch! Stock up on food in Marsh Harbor make the trip south. Once there enjoy the escape and relax. I can’t wait for the next chance to return! Mark 1/2022
Hello Travelers! If you are planning on visiting Great Abaco and are not sure where to stay, look no further than Casuarina Sea Breeze! This is a bonafide, post hurricane Dorian review of one of the best places to stay on Great Abaco. Actually, it is THE best place to stay in my opinion. This was our second stay at Janice and Bob's Casuarina Sea Breeze (our first trip was in July of 2021). We again stayed in the West Breeze. They have a West and an East Breeze. You can rent one, or both and there is a door that connects the two. They are both 2 bed / 2 bath. If you are looking for a place that is super clean, where the hosts are super nice, and for a place that sits on one of the most beautiful beaches on Great Abaco, then this is the place. On our first trip to Abaco in July, it was tough to choose a place to stay. Hurricane Dorian destroyed many of the rentals that used to be available but were still showing available! But this time, our second trip, it wasn't even a question as to where we would stay. My wife said that if the Sea Breezes were booked, we would just wait till one was available before going back. That's how much she loved this place! Again, the weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time. We don't fish so we didn't take the boat out this time (we did last time), but it was available for us if we needed it. The wife (Ha Ha) adding a comment here. Jim is correct, Casuarina Sea Breeze is perfect and I want to stay here again. It’s the perfect size, the cutes décor, has a full washer and dryer, which is great to wash up all your bathing suits and towels. The AC works great on hot nights, the view of the beach is so serene. Both bedrooms have plenty of space to put your suitcase and hang your clothes with walk in closets, both bathrooms are attached to the bedroom and perfect size. I especially loved the brand new king size bed in the master bedroom. If I didn’t want to be outside on the beach, I would have slept for hours. The place has everything imaginable. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to cook. Plenty of clean bathroom towels, bed sheets, etc... For the beach, a whole basket of beach towels, snorkel gear, kayaks, boogie boards, stand up paddle boards, and a 16 foot skiff to boot! The ocean water, even though it was noticeably colder than our stay in July, was warm enough to stay in all day. And it's very shallow for at least a hundred yards! One day we walked to the sand bars and collected Sand Dollars. In fact, we stopped collecting them when we simply couldn't carry anymore. Also, the water is so crystal clear you can see straight to the bottom which is a good thing so that we didn't step on any Starfish. And I'm not talking about any Starfish! Some were over a foot in diameter! Last but not least, the hosts. Janice and Bob. If we ever had a question, they were a phone call away. I even had to call Bob once to see if they had a cheese grater because I couldn't find one. He knew exactly where it was. I swear I looked there twice! Haha. Janice and Bob were very accommodating and they made the whole rental process very clear and very easy. As for groceries, during both of our stays, right when we left the airport (MHH), we hit Jimmy's Wines and Spirits for beer and wine and then Maxwell's for all of our food provisions. There are other liquor stores and grocery stores in town, but those two had everything we needed so we didn't look any further. Casuarina Sea Breeze is 20 mins from town so if you forget something or run out of something, you can always drive back to town. Thank you Janice and Bob! We will be back soon. 12/2021

The ocean front location of Casuarina Sea Breeze sets the stage for the perfect vacation get away. Bob and Janice thought of everything to make us feel at home and were especially helpful in directing us to the activities and attractions the Abacos have to offer. Great food, beautiful scenery and one of a kind hospitality made our vacation one to remember. We highly recommend Casuarina Sea Breeze and look forward to staying with Bob and Janice in the future.

Bob and Janice, How do we even begin to thank you enough for letting us stay at your beautiful home. Everything was so perfect. You provided us with so much great advice on what to do on your amazing island. The layout of your home was perfect for our group. Everyone had their own space and it was super clean with every gadget you would ever need. The towels, sheets etc. were top quality. Every piece of information you need is listed in a book provided in the home. Bob and Janice were within seconds away to help with any questions or needs that we had. The beach exceeded our expectations with so much to see and do. Stingrays, sharks, turtles, bonefish steps from the door. Early morning walks on the white sandy beaches took your breath away and was an unforgettable way to start your day. The beach is uncrowded which makes it super nice. I highly recommend staying at Casuarina Sea Breeze. You can’t go wrong with a more perfect vacation!!!!! There is so much to see and do. We can’t wait to return someday soon!!!!! 12/2021

Janice and Bob thank you for a great trip. We sadly returned home to Texas after 8 days at Sea Breeze. We were a party of 7 and had both units. This place is 5 stars. We enjoyed everything from the sunrises on the beach to the sunsets on the beach and everything in between. We kayaked and paddle boarded each day. We saw sea turtles, sting rays, and a spotted ray. Using the skiffs we snorkeled the reefs, checked out blue holes in the sound and duck cay and also caught enough fish (yellowtail, porgie, grunts and triggerfish) and conch for a couple dinners. Bob was nice enough to get us some fresh lobster tails from Marsh Harbour-incredible! We rented fishing gear from Kevin Sawyer in town and took a tour of Green Turtle Cay/Swim with the Pigs with his cousin Capt Tom Sawyer. As far as food we suggest using Maxwell’s for groceries. Try Jake’s for a prepped meal (food was very good and large portions) and don’t forget to try ice cream (I liked the Sour Sop-type of fruit) at the chicken farm. Bob and Janice made sure we were comfortable and up to date on Covid issues and policies making our trip nothing short of perfect. The only thing I can say negative is we should have stayed 2 weeks. Abaco has a ton to see and do.

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!
Polly – 2/2019
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.
Clara & Cal – 2/2019
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”!
Pete & Carey – 1/2019
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.
