Throughout this past week, The Timeshare Authority blog has tried to compile as much information as possible about the status of timeshare resorts and hotels impacted by Hurricane Sandy. For the most comprehensive overview, you may wish to check these posts published this week:

Today’s blog post addresses only resorts not previously covered or resorts where there has been a change of status.

Ocean Villas Nags Head, North Carolina reports that it sustained only minor damage (giving credit to precautions taken by its Board). Units 1 and 8 had some water problems and the owners were relocated to Units 2 and 3. Otherwise, the resort lost a few shingles, gained a lot of sand (that it has been busily relocating) and expected to be in good shape as of this weekend.

Oceans Villas II was closed but was scheduled to reopen yesterday.

The Golden Strand in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina has posted updates on its website at (www.goldenstrandobx.com/). They note that while their levee was breached, it will not be necessary to close any of their units. They have even posted great photos on their website so you can see how much sand was moved around during the storm.

To the best of our knowledge, at the time this blog was written, the following resorts remain closed:

  • Bluegreen’s Atlantic Palace in Atlantic City,NJ;
  • Legacy Vacation Club Brigantine Beach, NJ;

West 57th Street by Hilton Club is still closed because of the safety hazard presented by a damaged crane in close proximity to the property. Work to remove the crane is scheduled to begin today, Sunday, November 4, 2012.
