The Baeumler family’s journey as resort renovator and owners began in 2017, after their family vacation to The Bahamas. On this trip, the family merely spent a day at San Andros but fell head over heels in love with the place.
The HGTV couple had their eyes set on one of the island’s abandoned and rundown resort called the Emerald Palms at the time. Hence began their journey of resort flipping and the family subsequently landed an HGTV show.

A peek inside season 2 of HGTV show
- HGTV’s Renovation Island season 2 aired on June 20, at 8/7c.
Among the challenges that the HGTV property flippers will face this season, the COVID-19 pandemic remains the primary one. We saw in 2019 that after pulling a lot of strings together and after many sleepless nights the Baeumlers were able to throw the doors of Caerula Mar Club resort-wide open.
However, just when it was time to welcome the guests, the place had to be shut down thanks to the global health crisis.
Bryan told to the Toronto Sun that the opening day magic “didn’t last very long.”As international travel shut down, the family was stuck on an island with their children. However, being shut up on a beautiful island for months does have its downsides.
Sarah revealed in her interview that the challenges ranged from getting supplies to South Andros Island to figuring out how to keep their kids entertained.
