Thank you for posting!

Looks like Waterfront Chalet 46 is standing, it had been reported it was gone.

The last image is of the maintenance building.

PAN....

I have the same fears....and concerns. Time will tell I guess.

We started coming in October 1999....and on our first visit we had hurricane Jose October 20... which was a category 2...and we got 20 inches of rain in 48 hours. There was one death from a mudslide. We stayed at St. Tropez on Orient beach.

And then the sun came out....and it was unbelievable how fast the folks started repairing everything. I know that it cannot compare to the devastation that occurred during this hurricane Irma ...but I keep seeing in my minds eye the way the people pulled together and worked so diligently to get things up and running.

Willy was the first Club Orient person we met...because Papagayo was the first restaurant to reopen...and she waited on us. It was her kindness that won us over and we came back that very next April and have been doing so ever since.

It is not just the beauty of St. Martin...it is the beauty of her people...that draw us back year after year.

It is my understanding that Club Orient employs the most people on the French side...I cannot help but think that for economical reasons alone...it so needs to be rebuilt.

I pray all of the owners of Club Orient...will unify with the same spirit We have seen displayed year after year...and do what is best for St. Martin.

I know in my heart...that spirit will rebuild this beautiful Island and we will return again.

When we looked into buying a studio, there was clearly a collective insurance requirement...........and of course you had to put "your" unit into the rental pool

I'm sure this will scare off some of the owners as any storm does to Florida condo owners who head north having enough

But I would describe "owner" as really "financial supporter" who gets to make decorating decisions and leave items behind in storage............owning at club o was clearly described to us as something you do with "throw away money" because there are so many ways to lose it ----- a hurricane being chief among them

That said, there will be new owners.......who will be able to buy in at a new lower price than it was in august.



We were there in June and it was sold out as it was the June 16 and January 16 before that.......chairs were sold out every day too

If they get it cleaned up to any degree and visitors can get to the island, they will get back to Club O.

Hey I'll buy them two chairs and an umbrella right now...............at some point, that could/will be one way to get the cash infusion going for the Business.

Anyway, they will get to all these bridges and hopefully make all the right moves to rebuild stronger

Does anyone know if the new structures (Orange Crush) survived? The picture of where Pedro's was doesn't show them, but it could just be the angle.

I'm curious about the same.....I distinctively remember when they were building them having a discussion about the lack of headers above openings. Seemed like they could have build them right so that the water/wind could go through them but the structure would survive. Instead, it seems they opted for a more disposable structure.

I imagine you mean Orange Fever. Reports are all of the beach bars/restaurants are gone.

There is a 180 degree click and drag to pan image on Facebook that shows Orient clearly without any of the beach restaurants remaining. Only Papagayo, though badly damaged, is left. Everything else all blown/washed away. I'll add the FB url but don't know if it will work.

Wow... worst fears is right. I know that area like the back of my hand, and it's almost unrecognizable to me.
