Just to let owners know - the 3BR Pool villas are being renovated as we speak. I commented that the owners will be VERY happy to hear this and a staff member told me that owners that are here this week and had to be moved to the Bay Vista buildings were NOT happy not to be in their Villas.

We just completed our 'owner update' and saw a 2BR Bay Vista ground floor unit in building 24/25 and all I can say is that they are spectacular (but no view from the ground floor) - I can see why owners in other phases of the resort (we are in building 34) are upset that their units have not been upgraded yet.

This is a wonderful property and I can see why people pay top dollar to buy here - even my DH was asking about pricing at the 'update'. I had to pinch him when the salesperson walked away. :ignore:

Which unit in B34 are you in? How is our unit doing (3410) after Omar?

No renovations in B34 yet? I was under the impression that these were done in Sept - if not, time to restart the email campaign.

I am hoping this unit 3412 is NOT renovated...OMG, the guy here fixing the dishwasher says it IS renovated :eek: ...well, the sofa and chair ARE nice and there is a new wood dinning table - but the dinning chairs still need to be replaced (he says they will be as well as the coffee tabe) and the Formica in the kitchen and TV area is old with several cracks and an actual hole ....stove and micro look new and are black but there is a white refrigerator and white dishwasher.

The maintenance guy is saying this building had been closed down for the 'renovations' and just re-opened this week. The bathroom has had nothing done as the Formica counter top is cracked....I will see what else I can find out.....don't rat us out to management - wait until I leave on Saturday to start your campaign :D

I will post a few pictures in a couple of days....

Looks Great!

Because I am soooooo friendly and the guy occupying your unit wanted to know about our rental car, I asked if he would mind if I checked out his/YOUR unit 3410.....it looked very nice and according to your list, almost everything was done...it really is a shame they didn't get rid of the formica filled kitchen....it REALLY dates the unit.

See below - and I will get you some pictures of the new stuff from my unit, promise.

Thanks for the update - at least I will not have to start an email assault.

Now maybe we should start one dealing with a doubling of our property taxes.

I agree about the kichen (and a few other items), but the vote to refurbish did not have enough voters - so this was the next best resolution without a special assessment - eventhough they doubled the reserve fee.

I wonder if anyone found the hidden rum yet?

I believe you have noted it on the other thread - I received my tax bill for Bluebeard's BeachClub STT - my taxes doubled as well and the crazy thing is every other owners changed and none of them consistently????
Anyway, our HOA president has advised us all not to pay the 2006 taxes as their legitimacy is in question...so i am just holding the bill for now. :shrug:


and there was no mention of your rum.....but I didn't know to ask!

In the bathroom, there was a new mirror and light fixture above it.

As mentioned - I am in the process of buying the adjacent week to ours - and the property tax issue is challenging for Title Transfer. Luckily I am aware - this has major implications on transfers. The USVI Gov't got itself in trouble for unfair proportionality of property taxes and got called on it. Property taxes on Timeshares have doubled - and on St Johnians are disproportional. Taxes have more than doubled - that sucks - and unfair. ...and represents true taxation w/o representation (except the choice of ownership).
