Hurricane Michael Recovery Update

Hurricane Michael Recovery Update

As many of you know, Hurricane Michael hit Panama City and Panama City Beach back in October. The storm left us with some work to do. Thankfully, the Premium Beach Condos properties sustained minimal damage and we are on the mend.

Calypso Resort

All of our Calypso units are up and running. There were minor damages to other units throughout the resort, but our units at Premium Beach Condos didn’t have significant damage. Our properties were back in business at Calypso by the end of October, just a few weeks after the hurricane. In the meantime, we’ve primarily been housing families who lost their homes and recovery workers in the area.

Holiday House

The East side of Panama City Beach — where Holiday House is located — saw significantly more damage than the West. Holiday House had significant exterior damage. We lost large portions of the roof, three-quarters of the siding, and the fence. Debris was scattered across the property, including in the pool and across the parking lot. We also had a few broken windows, which led to minor water damage to the interior living room furniture.

Holiday House is improving every day. Resources are limited in the area, which means that the recovery process is slower than normal. But despite that, damaged furniture has been replaced and the interior has been restored; the replacement window will arrive soon. The roof has been completely replaced, and the fence is halfway done. Once the fence is finished, we’ll be able to begin to replace the siding.

We expect Holiday House to be up and running, business as usual, by early February.
