Thank you for your continued support and patience since Hurricane Dorian made landfall in September.
We’re happy to announce that we plan to reopen the resort in March of 2020!
In mid-October, our Charleston crew loaded up a U-Haul filled with supplies and made our way down to Jupiter, Florida, where the fine folks of Game Time Fishing hooked us up with an amazing ride over to Elbow Cay.
We were greeted at the dock by happy, smiling faces amongst the backdrop of sheer destruction. For some of us, it was our first time visiting since the storm. A mix of emotions, for sure!
We have a very long road ahead, but we are determined to rebuild back our piece of paradise. We have been very inspired by how our community is coming together in the wake of this disaster. While we’ll remain closed through February 2020, our kitchens are feeding upwards of 300 people three meals a day, every day. The resort fared well in comparison to many others and has functioned as a command center during this time of crisis with Lorenzo leading the charge.
As a reminder, we have eight villas, 1 bar, and one restaurant. Of those buildings, the Sweet Tea and Georgia Peach villas, along with the bar, were destroyed. The restaurant and remaining six villas have substantial but repairable damage.
Your support in purchasing tees and other resort items has helped immensely to make Firefly a beacon of hope amongst the destruction so thank you! Since we’ve returned, we’ve also added to our Online Shop. You’ll find some select items on clearance from The Boutique as well as new items that will continue to allow us to assist with relief efforts as well as rebuild.
If you are interested in visiting after March 1, 2020, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to request your dates. We rely on tourism and especially now in the rebuild phase!
As always, thank you, thank you, thank you! We are so grateful for all of your love, support and encouragement for all of those affected by Hurricane Dorian. We will be in touch!
The Firefly Sunset Resort Team
