Current Updates

June 2024

Building Renovation

Towards the end of November 2024, we will be starting concrete repairs on the northside of the building, including replacing the north stair landings and northeast roof edge. This work will run through February 2025. During this time the family spa and kids' playground will be closed. We will do our best to limit demolition and construction noise. Your understanding is appreciated.


May 30, 2023 - City of New Smyrna Teen Curfew

The New Smyrna Beach City Commission approved a permanent, year-round 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew for people under 18. It includes several exceptions. For example, it won't apply to youths who are accompanied by a supervising adult, are homeless, are running an errand, responding to an emergency or are traveling from work or a school, entertainment or religious event.

Anyone who knowingly permits underage people to violate the curfew will receive a written warning first, then a $50 fine, then a $100 fine or community service for parents who knowingly allow subsequent violations.

May 18, 2023

Repairs to our South Spa have begun. We expect it to re-open in June, weather permitting. During this time the family spa will remain open until 10:45pm (barring being cited for a sea turtle lighting issue) and will be for adults only after 6pm.

Work completed. Back to normal hours.

May 12, 2023 - Hurricane Repairs Update

The last item to be repaired are the stairs from the pool deck to the beach. This project is in the last phase of permitting. The Department of Environment Protection, in conjunction with the CCCL, Coastal Construction Control Line Program which regulates structures and activities that can cause beach erosion, destabilize dunes, damage upland properties or interfere with public access, and protects sea turtles and dune plants, has approved our permit. The City of New Smyrna Beach is ready to approve the building permit once Volusia County approves our paperwork. Our construction crew is ready to begin work on this project when our final step in the permitting process is approved.

For our Owners and guests who live outside our area, homes and businesses in New Smyrna Beach were heavily impacted by Hurricanes Ian and Nicole in 2022. The permitting agencies are inundated with permit requests and are working late daily to try to catch up.

The Resort is diligently working to get these stairs built and will post here when they are open for use.

Repairs Completed


January 2023

Windbreak has been rebuilt and the barrier fencing removed.

Pool Deck Paver repair is complete.

URGENT NOTICE - Check-in date changes

Damage repairs from Hurricane Nicole are ongoing.

For our owners, exchange and rental guests due to check-in on 11/18 and 11/19, your check-in date has changed.

Friday (11/18/22) arrivals please plan to check-in on Saturday 11/19/22 and check-out on Friday 11/25/22.

Saturday (11/19/22) arrivals please plan to check-in on Sunday 11/20/22 and check-out on Saturday 11/26/22.

While at the Resort there will be limited access to the pool deck and beach due to Hurricane Nicole. Our wind break was destroyed, the beach stairs are washed away and there are some areas of the pool deck where the pavers have shifted, thus the lower deck may not be open for a day or two while pool repairs continue and the temporary barrier fencing that will run along the eastside of the pool deck is installed. 

Beach Notice:

Currently, all Volusia County public Beach access is closed and the county highly recommends private access to remain restricted as there is significant debris on the beaches.

November 11, 2022

Hurricane Nicole Update

The Resort is closed until November 18, 2022. Hurricane Nicole caused major damage in New Smyrna Beach and the South Daytona areas. Fortunately, The Islander did not have more water intrusion into the units and work has now resumed repairing damages from Hurricane Ian. Our seawall held strong but we did lose the entire windbreak and some pool deck pavers have shifted near the seawall. We have hired an engineer to evaluate the seawall and deck. Re-building will start as quickly as possible. However, there may be delays getting permits and building materials.


November 9, 2022

Due to TS Nicole, the resort will not re-open Friday 11/11/22. All in-bound owners, renters and exchange guests have been contacted. The mandatory evacuation of beachside, forced the contractors working on repairs from Hurricane Ian to stop work. Resort Management will evaluate damage once the storm passes and the bridges open. We kindly request you do not call the resort for updates. Once back, the staff will be engaged in clean up and making repairs. The Resort should be ready to receive anyone scheduled for their stay starting November 18, 2022. If there is any change, you will be called at the phone number you gave us for our records. The Resort is currently closed.

11/9/22 @ 2:30pm

Storm Info: Currently there is a mandatory evacuation for beachside. At 2:15pm, waves are already hitting the seawall and spraying misty water over the glass windbreak. Winds are starting to pick up.

The Annual Budget Meeting on November 10th has been canceled. The new Budget Meeting will be conducted via zoom on November 17, 2022 at 10:30am.

Hurricane Ian Update

The City of New Smyrna Beach is seeing flood waters slowly dissipate but many of the Islander Staff are still without power and do not have passable roads. A few stores and restaurants have begun to open.

The Resort is continuing to get the unit carpets dried out while trying to accommodate incoming owners and guests. Many of the unit air conditioners were repaired or replaced by the Maintenance Staff. We discovered a damaged motor in the main pool pump room, causing the pool to be closed for a few days. We hope to get the pool open by Monday. 


September 30, 2022 11:15am

Hurricane Ian

The City of New Smyrna Beach is underwater in many areas. The main roads are now clear but most businesses and services are not open.

All the Islander employees are safe but most have had flooding in their homes, no power or dry/safe roads in their neighborhoods.

The resort stayed open with approximately 40 families weathering the storm here. There is water intrusion in most units throughout the building.

The bridges reopened Friday at approximately 9am and ServePro Water Restoration is on-site extracting water. There was no structural damage to the building. There were no broken windows, no roof damage and the pool deck area is good except there was some wall damage in the south spa but its useable. Your staff is assessing each room for water damage and cleaning units. They have reported that many of the unit air conditioners are not working. They are being evaluated to see if the problem is due to being wet from wind driven rain.

If you are scheduled to check-in this weekend, rooms may not be ready for occupancy at 4pm, please do not arrive early.

Please watch the news for updates or check the Volusia County and New Smyrna Beach websites. 



July 29, 2022


The Resort will be renovating the main pool between October 17, 2022 and November 18, 2022. During this time both spas will be open. We have a commitment from our contractor to have the pool open by November 11, 2022. However, since this project takes place during hurricane season, additional time was allotted in the event of a storm.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
