While my home is in overall good condition, there was some damage to the roof, outer walls, and the second floor, where I live. So I am unable to live in the house until it is repaired. As soon as repairs are completed I will list my home again. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to my future guests.
Keys residents are allowed back in the keys, and the restoration is underway. I will be checking on my home tomorrow morning, but it seems most of the damage sustained was to mobile homes and much older wooden homes.
I'll keep you all updated.
I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out to me with their thoughts and prayers. My daughter and I evacuated to Miami and are staying with family. It means so much to me, and it makes me very happy to know I am part of such a warm and caring community.
As for the house, as of right now residents are still not allowed back into the Florida Keys so I have not had a chance to physically look at my home to assess the condition. I have been looking at satellite imagery, and from that the house looks to have minimal damage, only missing shingles and destroyed tool shed. Once I am allowed back in I will have my home looked at by an inspector to make sure everything is safe. As for the Lower Keys I am not sure how long the recovery could take, the estimate for Key West to have power is within the next 10 days, and the remainder of the Lower Keys will be around a month.
I am always available to speak with anyone about their reservation, and I will be in communication with Airbnb about affected guests' reservations.
As long as my home can continue to provide a safe, enjoyable, and comfortable location for you to enjoy your vacation I will continue to open my doors to all of you. I will continue to post updates here as time goes on.
Thank you again for all the love you have shown me.
