The response and outpouring of help has been overwhelming. THANK YOU! So much so we created an email address so we can answer as many questions as possible. We have dedicated an entire tab on our website to keep you up-to-date on Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts. We will be adding to it as often as needed.
The Hurricane Dorian Tab is above or you can access the pages below:
On Sunday, September 1, 2019 at 12:45 p.m., the National Hurricane Center confirmed Hurricane Dorian made landfall at Elbow Cay, Abacos in the Bahamas. The NHC said to expect wind gusts over 220 mph, storm surges of 18-23 feet, and some waves even higher. Dorian made a second landfall at 1:24 p.m. on Great Abaco Island near Marsh Harbour. Winds increased to 185 mph, which according to the National Hurricane Center is “tied for the strongest Atlantic landfall on record with the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane”.
And this day changed our paradise forever.
Lorenzo and his team rode out the storm onsite, but some of the structures were damaged beyond comprehension. However, buildings we can rebuild… there is a long road ahead for everyone in Abaco.
Magical place to escape the stressors of life – Review from TripAdvisor
“We have stayed here multiple times and have never been disappointed! We sometimes visit with our five children and the resort is a perfect balance for adults and kids alike. Its a safe environment where you can let your kids be kids and explore. We like to island hop during the day and when we return to the resort, Patrick or Devero are there at the bar waiting to create a delicious cocktail for us and the housekeeping staff has created a clean, welcoming space in which to return. The food at the restaurant is delicious and fresh. The staff, especially Lorenzo, Erica, Francis and Tanis, go above and beyond what I have ever experienced in making sure all guests are taken care of. From the time you arrive at the dock, until you depart, you are able to relax and enjoy time with those you love. Every time we visit, I just want to pinch myself! We cannot wait until our next visit!”
Not Your Typical Tropical Resort
Review from TripAdvisor
“We return to our home this week planning our next visit to Firefly. It’s not your typical tropical location. If you are only going for a few days or two weeks like we do now, you get the same great service by all of their staff guided by Lorenzo Barigelli. The villas have everything you require to meet your expectations.To say they accommodate your every request would be an understatement. We only travel by Airgate Aviation (New Smyrna Beach, Florida). It’s an hour flight from Marsh Harbour, Abaco. By the way, we are just returning from our sixth stay at Firefly.”
