Just checked the weather reports. It looks like Thursday-Friday with winds 62 mph and heavy rains. Unless things change, it looks about the same as Irma. Like I always say, don't take chances. Plan on the worst but hope for the best. I'm hoping for the best for the staff and all the rest of paradise.

Hey all,

I just wanted to assure everyone that it is business as usual in paradise. I have spoken with the staff and the guest that rode out Irma. They described that storm as just a bad mid-western thunderstorm - 30 to 40 mph gusts and rain. They taped up the windows just in case got plenty of beer, water and ice and made a party of it. They did lose power for about 4 hours but that could happen at any random time in the DR. Actually, the north coast is the best area in the DR for keeping their power. Everyone was out on the town at a local restaurant whooping it the very next day. When talking to the guest he told me the beach had actually been improved!

I am receiving a lot of emails from the brothers concerned now about Maria. Maria is actually tracking even farther north than Irma so we are not expecting any trouble. So gentlemen, we are doing fine and business is doing great.

Cheers!

Everything is just fine at the villa. Maria tracked even farther north than Irma. Everyone needs to remember that our villa is located in an area that is very protected from the direct hit of a hurricane. The island effect keeps the hurricanes at least 50 miles off shore. The villa just experienced some winds - 30 to 40 mph gusts - and rain 3 to 4 inches. I talked with Indiana and actually the two storms actually helped our beach. Remember the 2 / 3 foot drop on the beach as you got close to the water? Well, it is flat now so you don't slide down that little dune. The beach is flat from the little wall straight down to the water.

Guys ... get your reservations in. Autumn is really a good season for the villa. Yes, we do receive a storm or two but it might only be a day of wind and rain. They rest of days are full of sunshine.
