The Island has changed names from Antlantis Island to Isla De Sol. But you can read this forum to see how it all started

I read somewhere that if you rent one of the units for a week, you better adhere to the ferry schedule or you will have to pay for the ride.
Anyone know what the schedule is and what would it cost if you use it outside of the schedule?

Or...what if one becomes ill and it's outside of the ferry schedule...die on the island?

I have been told that if you rent for a week and die before the 4th night you will receive a full refund..if you die after the 4th night then rentals paid are pro-rated and 50% of the credit can be applied towards a local funeral home...if you want to use a funeral home that is not local then 15% credit will be issued and 35% will go torwards ferry maintainence. If you die within 24 hours of your rental being over then you are just SHOL

What happens if I rent for 2 weeks and then die after the first week? I really don't want to use a local funeral home either but that offer is too good to pass up if I die on the island.
Does anyone know if they will negotiate on the 15%?
I really want to rent on the Isaland but just want to cover all of the bases in case I die.

Ho Lee,
Are you my long lost cousin? I've heard so much about you at the family reunions and dad started an online family tree:

Do you live on the Island and could you get me a good deal in case I visit there and die?

They can change the name but the problems will never go away. This is a BIG LOSER for those that bought a condo there!

They should have renamed it "The White Elephant"

Ah so, your long lost Chinese cousin. If you die on island put your ashes in traditional Chinese fireworks and emblazon you across lake sky.

We went down there last weekend...BIG mistake! Really cold with absolutely ZERO to do except try to stay warm. Talk about 'cabin fever'

Heard last weekend that the island has received permission to build the bridge to it. Good for them but what do the 'main landers' think about this?

The Island has definately NOT received permission to build the bridge...they are making another run at permission but there are a bunch of hurdles to overcome.

Good news for the neighbors around the island. However, the condo owners seem to believe it is a 'done deal'- beware of the power of money!

Isn't it really just the bank getting the necessary permits and coming up with the money. The proposal to get that little channel filled and a causeway built is really the only economically viable thing to do with this, it really needs to be done, and its really more just a matter of time for the inevitable occur.

You are most likely correct that the bridge will be built in the future. Shouldn't this have been completed at the time the island was being developed? How will this affect the 'mainlanders'- that's what I want to know. What about the roads getting to this bridge - more traffic.

Has anyone been to the Lake lately? We are thinking of going down Easter weekend and wondered how things are doing there.

Did anyone see this weekend's St. Louis newspaper? The featured Homes was Isla del Sol! They described the property as one of the 'newest developments' and offering for a 'limited time' the three bedroom condos starting in the low $100's to the next 25 sales." They indicated that 'almost' half of the 90 condos are already sold. Not bad for a 'newest' property over three years old, huh? They had pictures describing (their words) the 'expansive pool'(it is half wading pool and three strokes of swimming to the end of pool)and a rendering of the 'proposed'causeway. The 'two minute' ferry ride doesn't mention the waiting time. It states that a causeway for vehicle and pedestrian access is planned for the near future. My question is - how can a three year old property be marketed as 'new construction'...answer - more than half of the 90 condos have been vacant for three years!
