    Free annual oceanfront, one-bedroom/two-bath, floating week. Outside Lihue; best location on the island--close to the airport and convenient for traveling anywhere on Kauai. The property is maintained well, and the units were renovated two years ago. For pictures and more information: kauaibeachvillasresort.com and pahio.com/kauai-hawaii-resorts/kauai-beach-villas.

    Usage begins January 2018. Reserve up to 14 months in advance; choose your unit. Check in Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, depending on chosen unit. Maintenance fee this year was $1249.17. Buyer pays $208 closing fee to LT Transfers, $595 Grand Pacific Resorts transfer fee, and estoppel fee if charged. No ROFR.

    Two deeds (weeks) are available. Costs are per week.

    This timeshare exchanges with Grand Pacific Exchange (GPX, no membership fee) and independent exchanges like SFX. GPX lets you search before depositing and also offers bargain exchanges and the option to upgrade size for a fee. I've been getting frequent emails with ResorTime bonus/bargain weeks too. So if you can't get to Kauai one year, you have lots of options for your week plus more options to supplement it with extra vacations at reasonable costs.

    I thought Grand Pacific was simply brought in as the Manager but they do not have an Ownership Interest. So why $595 fee to Grand Pacific. But I could easily be confused.

    As I understand it, the transfer fee always goes to the management company. The closing company included this fee when I asked about costs of transferring ownership.

    Update on fees. Going through Advanced Financial, which handles MFs for Grand Pacific, transfer cost is only $375 per deed--the only fee. (I saw someone's post in another thread about going through Grand Pacific, so I called. Took two days to get a call-back; but this is good news.)

    I have a taker for one week.

    Both weeks gone. Taker found my ad on Craigslist, not TUG.
