  1. As many of you know, the Ormond Beach area was hit by Hurricane Matthew in early October causing billions of dollars of damage to businesses, homes and infrastructure. Initially it appeared that the Maverick was spared with damages, estimated to be very low. After further research and consultation, we hired a public adjuster to work with our insurance company for a more accurate and fairer evaluation on behalf of the Maverick. The damage is now in the millions of dollars and may exceed over $4 Million.
    When renovation began, the roof was the main priority along with the solar system, each of which had been compromised by the storm. After further exploration, it was determined that the top two floors had excessive moisture in the units and had to be closed for repairs, in addition to 14 other units (for a total of 60).
    On December 3, the rest of the units had tested positive for excessive moisture and we were ordered to close the resort with a projected reopening date of February 18. Delays in construction, partially caused by slow payment from the insurance company, forced us on January 30 to delay the opening to March 18. On February 23, we again had to delay the reopening to April 15 due to delays in payment and the complexities of the repairs because each unit is not identical to other units. Each repair needs to be a custom size.
    We wanted all owners to be aware because the damage from the hurricane and subsequent closures of the resort will have an impact on all owners, regardless of what week is owned. Some owners (over 2000) have not or will not be able to use their week, while we are closed and other owners will find that availability outside of their fixed unit week will be negatively impacted with regards to bonus weeks.
    While Florida statute does not provide for replacement of lost time due to a natural disaster, the Maverick Board of Directors along with the Management Team feels that the right thing to do is to provide something for our owners who have lost their week(s). While we cannot, unfortunately, offer monetary compensation, we are offering all affected owners another week at another time during the balance of 2017 and all of 2018. Some owners may be able to use their week next year in conjunction with a replacement week, subject to availability.
    The good news is that the Maverick will have a new roof, new solar system, new patio area, redesigned lobby and restaurant, and some added amenities. In addition, the units – while not having everything replaced – will look much fresher, newer and more modern. In addition, items that are replaced will have a positive impact on our reserve study as the useful lives of these items are reset to full value. That will concurrently have a positive impact on maintenance fees as the reserve contribution will be able to be less in coming years, thus helping to decrease the recently escalated maintenance fees.
    Once we re-open, we hope you’ll come and enjoy the new Maverick Resort. We look forward to seeing you then. Please check the website for updates on our progress.

      1. Hello dgottus, I have asked several years now if weeks can be swapped now that school starts back so early and that the resort is always seemingly empty. I was told by management that they have looked into the possibility of owners in good standing being able to change weeks but nothing yet has been officially considered. Maybe we can start a petition. I have the week before labor day which you would think to be a busy week and last year I had the pool to myself for the week. I love The Maverick and would hate to have to give it up.

      2. It is now april 8, 2018. I have week 14. For the second year, I have not been able to use my week. It will be aother full year before I am able to be in Florida again. At this time there isn’t even a projected opening date. This is unacceptable. I notice your Facebook page is shut down for comments. I assume because of talk of lawsuits and the negative comments posted. I have not paid this year. I have never missed paying ontime until now. It makes no sense to give you maintenance fees when I can’t use my week. The hurricane is one thing, but this goes way beyond that….

  2. Any update on opening date?
    Will there be another annual fee due 1-1-18 if nothing being available in return? Thinking not too wise an investment after doing that 1-1-17to do that again?

  3. August 23, 2017
    I have tried multiple times (August 1, 2017 and August 16, 2017) to email Dexter Lockhart and the remaining Board Members using the addresses given on the Board page and all attempts failed with no response from anyone. I called after the first email to Dexter Lockhart failed and spoke with the receptionist and she indicated a link was being set up between the address shown on this web page and his personal address. Please email me valid email addresses for all Board Members including Dexter Lockhart.

  4. IT APPEARS TO ME THAT THE BOARD IS TRYING TO GET MONEY FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY, THAT IS NOT REALLY JUSTIFIED. USUALLY, THE LEGITIMATE CLAIMS ARE UPHELD & RESOLVED, WITHOUT LITIGATION…NOT ONLY ARE YOU LOSING MONEY BY HIRING ATTORNEY’S, YOU HAVE LOST REVENUE WITH THE DOWN TIME OF THE RESORT…ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING OUT FOR OUR BEST INTEREST AS OWNERS???

  5. I’m new to the Maverick. We own 2 weeks at the Georgian dating back to the 70’s. We keep getting the run around at Georgian. Hope it doesn’t happen here. We are week 16. Hoping its open by then

  6. Would it be possible to make 2 payments on my outstanding maintenance fees for 2017, I experianced a finacial hardship which left some bills unpaid. I would like to take care of it before they come around again

  7. The headboard looks cheap like a motel 6. You removed the storage units bedside the bed. Did you create storage elsewhere? What is the quality of the shade divider? It looks cheesy from the picture.

  8. I have noticed the construction done to make complete the Maverick for entry, it all appears wonderful. I also noticed that the units on floors 2,3,4,& 7 has been updated to look better! What about the other units, particularly my unit on floor 6? Are they going to be updated or stay the same?

  9. As a Maverick owner [week 2, unit 314], I have not received a financial statement of revenue / expenses associated with owner fees for the years 2017 and 2018. Are those available? If yes, can you please post them on web site or email to me?

  10. I don`t understand why I get a letter from a collection agency when I never received a bill from the Maverick, I`ve never had a problem paying my fees until I never received a bill from Maverick but get a bill from a collection agency, what kind of scam is this?
