This is a copy from my St Martin JMB newletter that I received today.

4. Towers at Mullet Bay Current Status Report

Towers at Mullet Bay Report from the Heeringa Family, Charlene & Randy:

On Sunday, January 19, my husband Randy had the opportunity to tour the Towers at Mullet Bay. We own weeks 51, 52, 1, 2, 3, and 4 in unit 410.

Randy spoke with Carmella at the front desk and asked if he could speak with Mr. Clarence Derby, manager at the Towers at Mullet Bay. Mr. Derby is currently residing in unit 401 of the Towers. He spoke with Mr. Derby via telephone any readily and eagerly spoke to me.

Mr. Derby told me inquiry has been made and it looks like money will become available in a month or two. The increase by the government was only to employ votes for parliamentary purpose. I (Randy) asked permission to tour the facility. Mr. Derby granted me permission to do so with assistance of two housekeeping staff.

I toured units on floors 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, especially unit 410 which I own … and know quite well. There was a smell of mustiness as I entered my unit. I saw no evidence of mold and mildew in the bathroom as I have in previous years. All furniture, couches, chairs, and beds were all present. Air-conditioning is working but not currently on in our unit. There also was a dehumidifier in the room but not running. I then toured units on floors 6, 7, and 8. There was extensive wind and water damage to these units. It got increasingly worse as I went up in floors. Sliders were blown out and have not been replaced. The new sliders and screens were present in the units but not installed. There was scaffolding, drywall evident, and work had been started but stopped abruptly as if a switch had been turned off.

There is no hot water and no Internet or television. The pool is empty and do not know the extent of repair for it to hold water. The snack bar area appeared to need minimal repairs and would be usable. The building that housed the towels, restrooms, fitness center, and library appeared to be ... usable. The area that bookkeeping maintained also appeared usable.

The two housekeeping staff that gave me the tour indicated that occupancy on levels one through five could become available soon. Of course, above issues would be to be resolved. Level 6 to 8 will take considerably more time to repair [perhaps a year, Randy told us verbally -Ed.]. Housekeeping also said that a handful of timeshare owners of lower floors insisted on coming and staying even though there were no amenities. [The lower floors at the towers] are currently taking in distressed travelers (i. e., people who lost homes for example) on lower floors.

The golf course appears well-maintained. There has been enough rain to keep things looking green. The fairways and greens have been mowed. Two or three of the greens appear to be scruffy just as they have been in past years.

I welcome any questions that you may have and I will do my best to answer. I have tried to be as specific as possible on my findings. Randy Heeringa, owner, unit 410 weeks 51, 52, 1, 2, 3 and 4, the Towers at Mullet Bay.
