They got the idea to renovate a dilapidated Caerula Mar Club while vacationing on the island in 2017. With their television history — they’ve also starred in Canadian shows like ‘House of Bryan’ and ‘Disaster DIY’ — they pitched their idea on HGTV, and ‘Renovation Island’ was born. Despite setbacks like 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 moved their children to the Bahamas to rebuild the resort and record the show. But how many children do they have?

Sarah and Brian Baumler married in 2004 after dating for a few years, according to HGTV. Quentin, their first child, was born in 2006, followed by three more children: Charlotte, Lincoln, and Josephine. Viewers of “Island of Update” saw a lot of young people during the first two seasons. According to Distractify, Sarah and Brian initially intended to homeschool their children when they moved to San Andros Island, but as working at the resort became excessive and unsafe, they enrolled the children in a nearby school. Quentin, the oldest of them all, was entering high school, and instead of keeping him close to home, they decided to transfer him to a boarding school about 20 minutes away by plane.

Despite their hectic commitments, Brian and Sarah make time for their children. The couple and their children all love water sports. Brian and Sarah’s family of six enjoy a vacation in Florida, where they often go diving or fishing.

Learning at home

Sarah and Brian told RBC in 2019 how they’re teaching their kids money — and the value of saving. “Owning a savings account may not be as great as owning the latest game, but it is important to understand the value of things in the short term versus the long term. If you save and raise money for something you really want, you develop a pride of ownership,” Brian explained. Teaching Quentin about compound interest when he wanted to spend all his money on a skateboard. When Charlotte dials a phone, they talk about her taking care of her younger sister. “Giving your kids a measure of responsibility can teach them the concept of working for money. Sarah explained that when they work for money – or for something they want – there is more weight and importance attached to the item purchased.

What do Sarah and Brian want their kids to take away from Regeneration Island?

HGTV’s “Renovation Island” is a very unique type of home renovation program, because lead pair, Brian and Sarah Baumler, are rebuilding an entire island resort, rather than just one or two properties. Likewise, the remake takes an entire season rather than just one or two episodes. As a result, viewers became obsessed with whether the couple would drown or swim in the Bahamas, where their top beach resort is located, rooting for them along the way. Fortunately, their narrative had a happy ending to everyone watching in the house while they were isolated, as well as the Baeumlers themselves. They finished their resort, Caerula Mar Club, and opened it to guests this year (although slightly over budget). Reviews have been very positive, both from visitors and critics. And while it was undoubtedly worth it, there were many things the Baeumlers would have liked to understand before embarking on such an ambitious endeavor. However, they have learned a lot, and they hope their children will too.
