The water will remain shut off until the repairs are effected. Please do not contact the office for updates. The line should be repaired the same day. Owners who rent should advise their... read more

Madeira Way construction project

Well, if there is anything living thing here at the Yacht Club that doesn’t know there is construction going on across the channel to the south of us, there is! That banging in your head is actually pilings being driven deep into the ground to support the eventual building. That pounding is going to go on for a while so we may as well get used to it. The good news is that it will stop someday, and the condominiums that are planned for it are going to be really nice ones – that can only benefit the property values of our little community. Be patient. And wear earmuffs. Those who rent out their units might want to advise potential renters in... read more

Trash Areas

As we come into our 2019 season it is important for all owners and residents to remember to follow the posted signs at the trash areas. Contractor and remodeling materials cannot be put in the bins; large objects cannot be put in or beside the bins; paint, oil and electronics cannot be put in the bins. Cardboard must be broken down. Please recycle. Please do not overfill the bins – use the hatch doors to find available space – don’t just pile trash on other trash. These would all seem common sense and the courteous thing to do since the bins are intended for us by all. Let’s all work together to be a better (and cleaner) community.... read more

Trash and Recycling protocol

Possibly due to an increase in purchases this year, there seems to be a lot of remodeling going on in the community. Owners need to advise their contractors that construction debris must be removed from the property by the contractor. Construction debris fills up our dumpsters and other folks can’t put regular trash in. Units who are identified as the origin of construction debris will be fined as per the documents of the Association. Electronics can NOT be left out for pick up. Electronics must be disposed of as per the County and Municipal Ordinances. Once again, units who can be identified (through cameras or otherwise) as the source of discarded electronics (TV’s etc.) will be fined as per the documents of the Association. Large objects such as furniture can NOT be left at any trash area or anywhere else on Association property. Signs indicating this are at each trash area and yet some people still leave furniture and other large items. Units and/or unit owners who can be identified as discarding large objects on Association property will be fined as per the documents of the Association. We have many short-term rentals in here now. This may be contributing to the overflow of recycling. While recycling is an admirable and encouraged practice, PLEASE do not overfill the blue recycle bins. There are bins throughout the property and if one is full others can be empty. The City only picks up recycling once a week now (down from two times), so it is on us to maintain our bins. If you are a recycler, going a little extra distance to... read more

Rex Place closure

Everyone,   Starting Monday 5/14/2015 the entrance to Rex Place will be closed for one week until storm pipe and structures have been installed along the roadway.

Once the storm drainage is complete on Rex Place Keystone will have another update on the traffic direction for the following week. Keystone will have detour signage in place to help with the direction of traffic. I will update everyone on the next road change.   Keystone will be working on getting Municipal Drive open by end day tomorrow.   If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.     Tina Underwood Deuel & Associates 565 Hercules Avenue Clearwater, Florida 33764 727-822-4151 Office 727-265-0884 Cell  ... read more

Spectrum Offering

Spectrum wants you back: cut-rate Internet TV package targets cord-cutters <hr size=1 width=”100%” align=center> Jeff Platsky  |  The Press & Sun-Bulletin, Binghamton, NY 12:31 p.m. EDT Mar. 30, 2018 Battle of the best streaming boxes: Roku Ultra vs. Apple TV 4K We tested every streaming box you can buy, and our two favorite are both great devices—but which one is right for you? Reviewed.com – Jeremy Stamas and Jackson Ruckar Spectrum apparently has come to the conclusion there’s no turning back the consumer explosion in cord-cutting and streaming television — the cable television giant is making a play to lure traditional cable defectors with a cut-rate Internet television package. Customers who don’t buy traditional cable services nationwide are being solicited for a $21.99 monthly plan that allows them to return to Spectrum TV by selecting 10 channels from the standard cable lineup. The offer ends on April 12, according to a solicitation received by a customer in Binghamton, N.Y. Spectrum’s streaming app looks a bit like traditional cable when it’s opened and also is similar to other streaming apps such as Sling TV. Spectrum Internet is required for the new streaming subscription. TV Choice is being offered to Spectrum Internet-only and Spectrum Internet/voice double play customers “We continue to test and launch new traditional and stream video products to better serve the consumer demand for more choice,” said Laura Pritchard, Spectrum representative. A stunning part of Spectrum’s streaming roll-out is the offer to add on five premium channels, including HBO and Showtime, for $15 a month. HBO alone, through the HBO Now app from HBO, costs $14.99 a month. Showtime directly from Showtime is $10.99 a month. Introduction of an a-la-carte stream... read more

Wind Mitigation

Attention Owners:   This is the time of year that lenders request updated wind mitigation forms. Some lenders require new ones when the current ones expire. However, that is not so for the commercial policy the Association maintains; therefore, there is no need for the Association to update the current wind mitigations for the buildings. Below is the advice of our insurance agent.   Good Morning Thom,   We run into this on occasion.  Unfortunately, the personal lines carriers are requesting updates to your wind mitigation reports that have been expired even though no updates have been made to your roofs or opening protection.  The commercial carriers accept the most current wind mitigation report even if it has expired.  I am not running into any issue and do not need updated wind mitigation reports.   Not all personal lines carriers are requesting new wind mitigation reports so I would suggest new/different carriers to your unit-owners or have their agent force through the current winds mits.  That is, unless, the association chose to obtain new wind mitigation reports or the unit-owner chose to pay to obtain a new report on behalf of their unit.... read more

MBYCC Rental Policies

  With the overwhelming amount of time spent on rentals in our office (that is designed to be the managing agent for the Association and not dealing with the daily routine of rentals) the Board of Directors has decided to fall back on the original documents pertaining to rentals.   This is, in part, due to the huge increase of investment owned units now at MBYCC.  With the increasing amount of rentals not turned into the office in a timely manner, last minute rentals and our office having to follow up on renters that come in with no paperwork at all, at least 60% of the day is dealing with rentals.   On a daily routine, we are asked the best places to eat, asked for supplies for the units, receive daily mail because renters have not been provided mailbox keys for the unit, directions, asking for entry to units because codes have been changed, instructions on how to get in the gate, extra fobs/gate keys, to carry luggage, complaints about the units, sales and rental referrals and the list goes on.   The Association has become so overwhelmed with the increase of rentals that we are now having to bring in temporary help during the turnover at the beginning of the month to help with just the rentals.   One big issue has been the increase of renters showing up with service dogs with no notification from owners or agencies that there will be a service animal on the property.  Owners have not been notified that a service animal is staying in their unit.  It is our office... read more

Rex Place. Important!

All of the MBYCC parking lot is scheduled to be re-paved next week. All vehicles will need to be moved from parking spaces. Parking can be had in The City Parking area, inside the complex, and hopefully on the Rec Center side of the street which will be paved first. Parking places will be coned off as they become available. Please DO NOT move cones or attempt to park in these spaces once restricted. All owners who rent should notify their tenants or managing agent of this need. Cars WILL BE TOWED if needed. The good news is we will have a nice new parking lot and road by Easter – with any luck. Any questions contact the... read more

Pool Wrist Bands – Additional Information

POOL WRIST BANDS   GOAL: To clear the pool(s) of individuals who are not registered at the office under the Rules and Regulations provisions. This procedure will also allow the office to monitor and control the amount of people that are staying in each unit per the code regulations of One Bedroom (4 people max.), Two Bedroom (6 people max.), and Three Bedroom (8 people max.).   ISSUANCE: Each unit owner will be given wristbands up to the allowable amount per unit (see above). It is the responsibility of the unit owner to obtain the bands for their unit by contacting the office.   EFFECTIVE DATE: All persons will be required to wear a wrist band while in the pool area(s) beginning April 1, 2018.   ENFORCEMENT: Individuals not wearing their bands will be asked to leave the pool area.

If a band is damaged, broken or torn and is unwearable, it may be replaced by the office free of charge.   ADDITIONAL GUEST WRIST BANDS: Guest bands may be obtained through the office with a deposit of 100.00 which is refundable when the bands are returned to the... read more

New Pool Wrist Bands are in

Come and get ’em! The new bands have arrived. Get into the office and pick yours up. Fashionable and custom-designed. OK, maybe not so much, but they will need to be worn when in the pool areas after April 1. And that’s no April Fool. Speaking of which, April Fools Day this year falls on Easter.  That last happened in the 50’s. When this rare match occurs you’re supposed to tell your kids to search for the eggs you didn’t hide.... read more

Not to state the obvious, but street work has begun on Rex Place and will be in progress for some time.

Cars will get notices on their windshield requesting relocation and any spaces coned off are scheduled to be worked on the following day. Please contact the office if you need any updates, and try not to disturb the contractors in their... read more

All power is on

Just a new week update. We have full power at the Yacht Club now and the staff worked through the weekend to get things back in order.

Please feel free to notify the office of any possible damages you... read more

Power is on at MBYCC

Good news to all residents at MBYCC.  Some power was restored late last night, while others did not get power until early this morning.  While the power was restored, some units still had no a/c, cable or internet connection.  Around 9 a.m. this morning, most everyone we knew had power and was back up and running. By that time Thom was feeling better and on site around 5:00 a.m. checking on things.  Both pools have been cleaned and back up and running.  The Clubhouse is now open as usual.  The mail has been running since Tuesday this week, even though they still don’t have power. There are still many places without power.  Please keep those individuals in your thoughts and prayers as the temperature (with heat index) is around and just above 100 degrees daily. Many of owners has had someone here to check their units.  If you do not have anyone to check your unit and you have left food in your fridge, then please contact the office because rotten food will attract flies and other insects you would not want inside your unit.  We are slowly getting back on track and now have more time to deal with individuals. Thank you to all of you that has helped us and neighbors out during this time.  Your time and effort is much appreciated.  Keep well,... read more

Update September 15, 2017

Another day with no power.  Some owners are still holding out with the heat while staying in their units, while others come in for the day and seek refuge in the evenings and night. Duke Energy is still promising that we all will have power by midnight tonight so I hope I have good news to report tomorrow afternoon.  If power is restored, the maintenance staff and I will he on hand tomorrow to try and get caught up on your emails and phone messages. Thom is out sick the strept throat and we hope he is feeling better by Monday so he can return to work and be able to contact those owners that have called or emailed him.  In the meantime, we will try and keep you updated. Our insurance company has been contacted and we have been told to get our contractors out to assess any damages and make a full report to see where we stand in regards to filing a claim.  So far roofers, gutter people and the gate company have been contacted to get the roofs, gutters and soffits and gates inspected. We would like to solicit your help with some of these things. Once you arrive back on the property, please check your unit for any damage, water leaks and/or problems that may be related to the hurricane. Also, check your attics for any possible signs of roof leaks or damage. Report anything suspecious to the office.  We have been advised not to file any claims that are less than 5% of the insured value. Any input would be helpful. We have... read more

September 14, 2017 It has now been a week since the barrier islands was given a mandatory evacuation. MBYCC still does not have the electricity restored.  Today the temperture (with the heat index) is 104 degrees.  Many of the owners that have returned come early of a morning, but seek shelter elsewhere by noon due to the heat and fear of a heat stroke.  Ice cannot be found in most places and thousands are still without power, but we hear that section by section is being restored and Duke Energy has posted that all power for Pinellas County should all be restored by Friday afternoon. I had to close the office today because of the heat and dehydration. I still make several trips a day back and forth to see if the power has been restored and some owners tough it out through the heat.  I don’t know how they do it.  As soon as I know the power has been restored, I will be back here on the website to let you know. Many of the refridgerators have been emptied and food thrown away due to the heat and no power. Thank all of you that followed up on the advice.  Tom still has the emergency phone that you can call for more information. The phone in the office will not be back on until power has been restored.  In the meantime, as long as you hear a busy signal when you call, means that the power is not back on. The staff has been to MBYCC on a daily basis and slowly cleaning and restoring the complex.... read more

Hurricane update 9/13/17

September 13, 2017 Today is the first time that we have been able to contact our owners.  We are now going on several days after Hurricane Irma and MBYCC has no power.  As for damage; we are grateful that we have not suffered the damage that other counties have have suffered, since the hurricane decided to move towards the middle of the state as it approached Pinellas County.  We did not get the surge that was expected which was our biggest concern for the barrier islands. Some units have been checked and we have found little or no damage.  There are several gutters, soffits and signs blown around the complex along wtih limbs, trash and debris. Several grills were overturned, but none blown loose.  We have put them in the upright positions, but most that were overturned did get some sort of damage.  We had one boat where the pilings broke loose and the boat sank and one enclosed patio at the 363 building was torn off the building and landed one building over.  The main gate (entrance & exit) has suffered damage and it may be more time before they will be back up and operational.  We have not been able to open the entrance gate, so the exit gate is now being used to enter and exit the complex.  The middle and far east gates are open. Right now the main concern, for you as owners, is to try and find someone to go into your unit and take any food that may have been left in your refrigerators and have it removed, uplug the fridge and... read more

Main Gate Goes Live!

The new main gate entry system is scheduled to go live Monday, July 31. From that day forward access may be gained using your RFID tag attached to your vehicle, the code that has been assigned to your unit, by dialing the phone number supplied by you (this is the same way as the old system) and pressing 9 on your phone, or by dialing the office code (0033 – call) during normal office hours. Owners who rent must contact the office to obtain a code for your renter along with the required paperwork and payment PRIOR to occupancy.... read more

The Main Gate

The main gate is operational now, but we have not begun to lower it until all the data entry for each unit has been accomplished. This is to minimize inconvenience. The Board of Directors asks that owners with vehicles that are not currently on property contact the office to make arrangements to come in to receive their RFID access tag and have it applied to their vehicle. Also, and very important, please provide the office with an updated phone number if you want it entered into the system. That phone number will be the one a guest will use to call you to gain access. This can be a land line, cell phone, or long distance line. For owners who rent their unit, please contact the office to obtain a code which you can utilize for your renter. This code will only be activated for each rental period. Additionally, the new phone system at the gate will still use the same code for the office who can activate entry during business hours. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office. The Board worked hard to provide the community with a more secure gate system. While there may be some adjustment period, we are confident the new system will operate effectively for... read more

Summer is Here!

Well, maybe not officially, but certainly weather-wise. It’s hot. It’s sticky. It rains a lot. Our new roofs are holding up wonderfully, but the rain brings other challenges, among them street flooding. Our inside street, Medallion Blvd., has a long history  of flooding in a good downpour, particularly around the big pool area. Fortunately, we are not in our busy season and so parking is ample enough to allow you to move your vehicle to another spot. Rex can also flood by the Fire Station. Drive carefully. The City has plans to redo the storm drains on Rex Place someday and when that happens we are hopeful it will alleviate some of our flooding issues. Florida beaches are still a wonderful place to be in the summer. Dress appropriately, drink plenty of fluids, and have a good time!... read more

King of the Beach this weekend.

The King of the Beach Fishing Tournament is this weekend – Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The City has gotten pretty good at hosting these events and we don’t expect any issues; however, there will be the usual added traffic on Rex Place due to the various comings and goings associated with the event. Our front gate should be operational this week, so we shouldn’t have to worry about ‘vehicular intrusion’.
