Pond Bay interest rises

Pondbay The Pond Bay development is on target to have 26 of its beachfront cottages open by Christmas. “Sales are being made,” said Bill Orwig, Director of Sales.  “We will host our first owners for the holidays.”

Marketing activity has picked up since Pond Bay centralized its sales effort at the resort’s Chocolate Hole site.

A three-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 2,200-square foot beachfront cottage is open for visitors daily.  "We moved (from the Marketplace shopping center), and had much more walk-in activity,” Orwig said. Promotional signage on the South Shore road has helped alert people interested in touring the site and seeing the model.

The announcement that Auberge Resorts Management Company will be overseeing Pond Bay has also helped build interest.  The discerning readers of Travel + Leisure, one of the most respected travel magazines in the world, recently voted Auberge Resorts among the world's best. Its Inn at Palmetto Bluff was awarded "Best Resort in the Continental U.S. and Canada" and Esperanza Resort, a luxury resort in Mexico was named "Best Hotel Spa in Mexico" in the 14th annual World's Best Awards readers' survey. This has given many people confidence that Pond Bay will be a world class operation.

By December, the developers hope to have resort amenities operating, including a restaurant, spa services, and pool.
