First, a little bit of historical past. The Baeumlers first bought the thought for his or her present again in 2017, after they vacationed on South Andros within the Bahamas. Whereas there, they got here throughout the deserted Emerald Palms resort, which had closed down in 2011. Upon discovering that the resort was on the market, the Baeumlers made the (questionable) choice to buy the 18-room lodge and clubhouse (plus 22 villas!) and renovate it.
They began filming Island of Bryan (because it was initially recognized) in 2018, and the Baeumlers deliberate to open the resort in Could of 2019. This was a fairly large deal because it was the primary time an HGTV Canada present featured the renovation of a web site that might (ultimately) be open to the general public for a go to.
As for whether or not the resort ever opened, it did! Though it didn’t occur precisely in response to plan. Contemplating that provides solely got here in as soon as every week (and typically under no circumstances), we will’t say we’re shocked by that truth.
Nonetheless, the Baeumlers formally opened Caerula Mar Membership (the resort’s new title) within the winter of 2019. Renovating all the resort was clearly an enormous enterprise. Whereas it appeared at first to have paid off, issues have been tough for the Baeumler household because the resort opened.
