Accommodations

The Resort I want to use as home base is Banana Bay Resort and Marina. The manager is trying to get a block of 20 rooms for around $100 per night. It is high season and I don't have that price nailed down yet, but it is looking good. Next door to that is the Blackfin resort. The Blackfin is a clean small resort attached to the Hurricane Grill Restaurant. For people who want higher end lodging, I am trying to get a deal on some three bedroom condo style units with full kitchens. These will be in the $300 range, affordable with two are more couples. These are about three miles away from Banana Bay resort, but still in town. I'm listing their hotel web sites so you can check them out.

And camping, how did I forget that?

Bananna Bay is now home base. They have a $99 rate for the first twenty. After that we will try to block off twenty more.When booking mention the smart scramble rate. It is per Pete P. he is the manager of the place. I'm posting this info to let people know what kind of lodging is available. I will be updating soon.

Way to go, Krusty!

Just out of curiosity, I ran the dates through hotels.com... and this is what they say (as of right now):

Banana Bay: $145/night
Blackfin Resort: $99/night
Kingsail Resort: $139/night
Coconut Cay: $140/night

Even those rates are not bad at all... but I'm sure Krusty can work some of that smart magic and get us an even better deal!

Banana Bay is now officially home base. The $99 rate is on for the first twenty who sign up. After that block is filled, we will try for twenty more, hopefully at the same rate.

I just got a call from Banana Bay, they were letting me know they are getting really close to the 20 room reserve. They may have some rooms after that, but the price may be higher. Thanks for booking.
