Remodeling a home is a huge undertaking. Remodeling a whole resort? Home restoration experts Bryan and Sarah Baeumler loaded up their 4 kids and relocated to the Bahamas, where they planned to refurbish a whole resort.
The Baeumlers bought a Bahamas resort
When the Baeumlers bought an abandoned 10- acre resort on the island of South Andros, they had big dreams. They wanted to turn the rundown vacation spot into an island oasis, with 18 high-end hotel spaces, 22 ocean-front rental properties, and plenty of resort amenities. And they wished to do it all in 6 months.
Bryan and Sarah– together with a small personnel– dove right in, dealing with a long list of must-do projects that needed to be completed before they could invite any guests. That included refurbishing the home’s full-service dining establishment, clubhouse, day spa, pool, and bar.
” This is the greatest modification our household has faced and the largest job we’ve ever taken on,” Bryan stated, including that the household was running the risk of “absolutely whatever” on the endeavor.
” Everyone stated we were insane,” said Sarah. “However our hearts stated ‘yes’– this is the best thing to do.”
You can experience Caerula Mar Club yourself– for $385 a night
The restoration of the Baeumler’s resort is still playing out on HGTV. It’s not a huge spoiler to state that they did ultimately total the project (though we don’t understand if they got it done in their six-month time frame.) Caerula Mar Club– which Conde Nast Traveler named one of the very best brand-new hotels of 2020– was the very first brand-new hotel on South Andros Island in nearly twenty years, and it’s currently taking bookings.
Per night prices at Caerula Mar Club begin at $385, according to the resort’s site. Private beach villas are $865 a night and up. The resort is currently closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic however is accepting reservations from October 24,2020
All spaces and vacation homes include glamorous information like premium linens and full or partial ocean views. There are also a number of dining choices on-site, a medical spa, free bikes you can use to check out the surrounding area, and (naturally) a stunning beach
What guests need to say about the ‘Renovation Island’ resort
Caerula Mar Club has actually just been open for a few months (the pandemic hit simply six weeks after the grand opening, Bryan shared on Instagram), so it does not have a heap of online evaluations. Those who have actually checked out the resort have raved about it.
One family that stayed for a week this spring called the hotel “fantastic” and “worth every dollar invested” in a TripAdvisor review. Another stated the resort was “very remote, but so relaxing.” Lots of applauded both the tasty food and the mindful service.
” Bryan and Sarah Baeumlur are the owners of this specialized resort and they have actually done a remarkable task of renovating and upgrading this when forgotten location in paradise,” one visitor shared. “The atmosphere is quiet and tranquil and the charm of the island and beaches exceeded our expectations.”
