Do you need electricity? Iím not sure Leverick has it yet. Or telephone. Maybe send them an e-mail. The North Sound was badly hit, so no Bitter End, Saba, Costa Smeralda - as far as I know.

Electricity is coming over the mountain right now. The want to bring power to South Sound, so they can power up the water plant for North Sound

keep a close eye on Leverick Bay though, from what I have seen they have or expect to have functioning rooms very soon, I would say certainly by Jan. The restaurant, store and spa are already running.

I thought I saw that Bitter End would be rebuilding - I think I even saw them state they'd be open sometime mid to late next year. Clearly the damage they took would take 6 months to a year or more to get back to where they were though.

After I posted, I checked their page.. They'll be back.

Statements made on their website mean nothing about whether they have the funds to rebuild or whether the current generation of ownership has the desire.

That's two vastly different stories. Have any of you heard from reputable sources that BEYC won't be opening? That's the first I've read about it.

What about Saba?

Thanks, Laura -- I think I was thinking of just peeps who are used to emailing Nick and Monz directly -- I think now one of the biggest problems are the flights! I keep reading stories of flights booked that have been canceled within a week of booking or completely changed to something not realistically manageable.

Jet Blue has already changed our JUNE flight into SJU!

Regarding The Bitter End, their website says that they are "temporarily closed." That's all. No indication whatsoever of when they might reopen, what sort of rebuilding might be done, or anything else. Just the word "temporarily" to indicate that they hope to reopen someday.

On the other hand, the property is quite valuable. Whether it is the current owners, or someone else, eventually, SOMEONE is going to do SOMETHING with it! That's inevitable. Whether that "something" will be anything like the old Bitter End, or even use the name Bitter End... Only time will tell.

Leverick Bay is open and has condos and hotel rooms available. They have a running generator and water and have had for the majority of the time since the Hurricanes according to my friends there, and so have power, think internet has just been restored as I received an email from Monica a few days ago. They did am amazing job cleaning up the resort super fast and the restaurant downstairs is open for lunch and dinner and they are also severing Thanksgiving dinner too !! You can contact them : Melissa vgvrbvi@gmail.com or Rebecca reblewis1979@gmail.com

Michael Beans is returning in Dec for his Pirate show and I believe the Jumbies too. Arawak is reopen, Dive BVI has relocated to the valley, BVI Snuba / Bradley /
Powerboats/ Blue Rush will reopen beg of Dec.
So loads to do and be entertained by,wined and dined at Leverick bay !

I have to wonderabout Beycas i just last night contributed to a site to raise money for them ..i paid $75.00 for a very nice IZOD t shirt so i am guessing they are legitimate
,,,i don't mind donating to a good cause , [ I even wonder if the BEYC is a legitimate cause as they must have has insurance up the butt for that place ,,but i got a great izod shirt for $75.00 .. sure a bit pricey but as longa s it goes to a good cause <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Woof.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Woof.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Woof.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Woof.gif" alt="" />

Bitter End will reopen but not until 2019 that is the plan, they have already have a supplier lined up to bring in the materials needed.

That is going to be a monumental job. BEYC was close to 100% demolished and there are more than 70 individual structures.
