Relocating to the Bahamas so your folks can refurbish and run a resort may sound like something out of a film, but it's the everyday world for the Baeumler children.​What's it like having to grow up on 'Renovation Island?' Ask Bryan and Sarah Baeumler's children, who are growing up at their parents' Caerula Mar Club on the Bahamian island of Andros.

Sarah and Bryan Baeumler are the husband and wife team behind the reality show 'Renovation Island.' The series follows the couple and their family as they refurbish an old resort on San Andros Island in the Bahamas. Sarah's aptitude as a designer and Bryan's skill as a contractor combine to make the two remodeling experts. Bryan revealed in a Season 2 episode that the kids had been living, playing, and studying at a hotel throughout most of the pandemic.

They got the idea to renovate the decrepit Caerula Mar Club while vacationing on the island in 2017. With their television history — they had also starred on Canadian shows such as 'House of Bryan' and 'Disaster DIY' — they pitched their idea to HGTV, and 'Renovation Island' was born. Despite setbacks such as Hurricane Dorian and the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced the hotel to close for a few months in 2020, according to Cheat Sheet, the show was an instant hit with viewers. One of the main reasons for the show's success is that the Baeumlers relocated their children to the Bahamas to rebuild the resort and tape the show. But how many children do they have?

Sarah and Bryan Baeumler wedded in 2004 after dating for a few years, as per HGTV. Quintyn, their first kid, was born in 2006, followed by three more: Charlotte, Lincoln, and Josephine. 'Renovation Island' viewers saw a lot of the youngsters throughout the first two seasons. As per Distractify, Sarah and Bryan initially intended to homeschool their children when they relocated to San Andros Island, but as the work at the resort got excessive and unsafe, they enrolled the kids in a nearby school. Quintyn, their eldest, was entering high school, and instead of keeping him close to home, they decided to move him to a boarding school approximately 20 minutes away by plane.

Despite their hectic commitments, Bryan and Sarah make time for their children. The couple and their children all like water sports. Bryan and Sarah's family of six enjoys vacationing in Florida, where they frequently go scuba diving or fishing.


Learning at home

Sarah and Bryan told RBC in 2019 how they teach their children about money – and the value of saving. “Having a savings account might not be as cool as having the latest toy, but understanding the value of things in the short term versus the long term is important. And if you save and raise the money for something you really want, you develop a pride of ownership,” Bryan explained. Sarah and Bryan recounted teaching Quintyn about compound interest when he wanted to spend all of his money on a skimboard. When Charlotte asked for a phone, they talked about her babysitting her younger sister. “Giving your kids some measure of responsibility can teach them the concept of working for money. And when they work for cash — or for something they want — there is more weight and significance attached to the item purchased,” Sarah explained.

What do Sarah and Bryan want their children to take away from 'Renovation Island'?

HGTV's 'Renovation Island' is a very unique kind of home renovation program, because its lead pair, Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, are rebuilding an entire island resort, rather than just one or two properties. Similarly, the remodeling takes a complete season rather than just one or two episodes. As a result, viewers grew obsessed with whether the pair would sink or swim in the Bahamas, where their fixer-upper beach resort is situated, rooting for them all the way. Fortunately, their narrative had a happy conclusion for everyone watching at home while they were isolated, as well as the Baeumlers themselves. They finished their resort, Caerula Mar Club, and opened it to guests this year (despite going slightly over budget). The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, both from visitors and critics. And, while it was unquestionably worthwhile, there are several things the Baeumlers wish they had understood before embarking on such an ambitious endeavor. They did, however, learn a lot, and they hope their children did as well.

New episodes of HGTV's 'Renovation Island' will premiere on Sunday, July 24 at 9 p.m. ET. Discovery+ will also have access to the eight-episode season.
