Would one of you people 'in the know' (SEAWINGS!)please take a minute and update me on the Basil Jones area. I am interested in purchasing up there but am concerned about the Basil Jones Resort fiasco and I can only get bits and pieces from the message boards. My specific questions:

Q1: Are the Basil Jones Neighborhood properties shown in a map on the same as the BJResort? I'm thinking not...

Q2: Basil Jones is a generally a strip of land several miles long and not just a single development correct?

Q3: If these properties are the same as the Timeshare fiasco BJResort, has the title of the land been sorted out yet?

Q4: What else should one know about the Basil Jones properties currently listed (Lots 6,7, 10) on the Southwind listings site? Any owner info one should be aware of?

thx for your time and any input anyone has on this topic!

cheers, Piatro

I have found a 'CabanaReef' Owners group on Yahoo that is apparently the group of unfortunates that were taken by some fellow named 'Adam'. Reading between the lines on this it might be the Triton listing that is up for sale. Best of luck to this group.

So, any other news on the Basil Jones Neighborhood at

thx P

Basil Jones is the name of an area that is quite large. It contains many smaller tracts of land. When you purchase a lot, have a title search (on that particular parcel) done by an attorney.

And as I recall there's another (also not operational) little resort at Basil Jones called Basil Jones Something, can't recall what.

Hi Lan - I think you are referring to "Basil Jones Beach Club" - which is a bit north of the once and famous time-share project. Fred Roth did this subdivision of land long ago and developed it naturally and slowly. Not a rip-off. Also not agressively marketed. Fred's cool.

Sorry, but just saw your post on Basil Jones.The area you are asking about and the area that Southwind has listed is a bit north of the defunked Basil Jones Resort.The property for sale listed by Southwind is a couple of hundred yards north.Beautiful up there.No structures on the land listed.I know most of the owners of the land listed.Lot 10 has more palm trees on it than 6,7 and 11.
