Jim and Gay had vacationed to Amelia Island many times over the years and made the decision to invest in Elizabeth Pointe with their son so they could retire on the beautiful island.  Both Jim and Gay have retired from all Dunlop Hospitality investments including Elizabeth Pointe and Amelia Island Vacations.
