    Orlando Timeshare free to good home - Vistana Resort - Falls Section
    2 bedroom (non-lockoff) deeded fixed week 12 unit 0255 every year (Spring Break/Easter). The week is fixed but can be used as a float any week of the year by canceling the automatic fixed reservation. This is a voluntary resort, there are NO staroptions, all trading is done within the resort or Interval or RCI (dual affiliated). This week is paid off with no mortgage or special assessments pending.

    I've seen this same week listed with resale brokers for $2500.

    First usage year is 2020. Usage for 2019 has been paid for and deposited so no longer available. 2020 usage can be deposited right away by paying the maintenance fee in advance. I have owned this since 2018 usage year, I am passing it along to another TUGer since I purchased some Vistana points

    Maintenance Fee Detail for 2019: $956.78


    Trading fee in Interval is $154 for Vistana (Sheraton/Westin) resorts and has first preference on deposits,

    Week 12 is a high demand spring break Orlando/Disney week so it trades well in Interval or RCI. Depending on the year it may fall on Easter or the week before and gets excellent RCI TPUs. 2018 is estimated at 40 TPU. Previous owner got 56 TPU for 2016.

    This week gets a bonus Accomodation Certificate from Interval for deposit, and I have received extra bonus ACs every year. ACs typically cost from $250-$400 depending on unit size traded into.

    This is a 2 bedroom week so it avoids the new Interval upgrade fees.

    Trading History:
    2014 Usage - Interval for Westin Kaanapali Villas 2br April27-May4
    2014 AC - Hyatt Pinon Point Sedona 2br Dec15-22
    2015 Usage - Interval for Marriott Newport Coast Villas Nov16-23
    2015 AC - Sedona Summit 2 br Dec14-21
    2015 AC - Westgate Vacation Villas 2br Nov7-14
    2016 Usage - RCI 56 TPU traded for 2 consective weeks at HGVC Kingsland May7-21
    2017 Usage - Interval for Hyatt Key West 2br May6-13
    2017 AC - 2 awarded that I haven't used
    2018 - Used at resort - nice unit, recently refurbished
    2019 - deposited to interval - not used

    I keep track of Easter week to know whether to use RCI or Interval:
    Year Easter Sunday Vistana Week 12. Deposit Company TPU
    2020 April 12 March 21 Interval
    2021 April 4 March 20 Interval
    2022 April 17 March 26 Interval
    2023 April 9 March 25 Interval
    2024 March 31 March 23 RCI
    2025 April 20 March 22 Interval
    2026 April 5 March 21 Interval
    2027 March 28 March 20 RCI
    2028 April 16 March 25 Interval
    2029 April 1 March 24 RCI
    2030 April 21 March 23 Interval

    Do the Falls sleep 6 or 8?
    You state you have owned this unit since 2018, do you mean 2014 since you show trades starting 2014?
    What does II charge for a trade to a non Vistana/Sheraton/Westin resort?
    Thanks

    Falls sleep 6. I have owned since 2017 and had 2018 and 2019 usage. The prior trades were shares from previous owner who i purchased from here on TUG

    Is this still available? I may be interested in it for trading. Do you know what closing costs are with Vistana?

    Yes still available. No closing costs to you I am taking care of those but for your reference all in less than $200 with LT transfers handling the entire process. It’s a strong trader as you can see above. I didn’t add that I got 2 ACs (accommodation certificates) in interval this year when I deposited. So it’s like 3 vacations in 1!
