    did I do the stupid thing?

    Rescind., Berkley is not a known entity. There is no reason to buy it, especially at 17K!! Edited to add: It used to be Lighthouse Key Resort and Spa

    Hawaiian Timeshare Exchange policy on Covid-19 cancellations

    You may use RCI's "chat" to ask when the exchange fee credit must be used. I cancelled DVC on 3/27 and the credit was good until 9/30.

    II - time limit to deposit to receive maximize trading power??

    You have 2 years after the check-in date to use the deposit. I would not pay to "extend". Instead, if absolutely necessary, use E-Plus as a way to extend for up to a year, with 3 retrades.

    The $99.00 ripoff. [MERGED]

    Welcome, ValleyWine: Take the Interval certificate. Get it onto your account asap; then search Interval as often as possible. There will be excess inventory in Hawaii this summer, if you can travel. I saw MKO for Aug 1 and Aug 7 yesterday. Keep checking as often as possible. This is the time to...

    New to exchange of timeshares

    There are many factors which affect your trade power. The most overlooked are: 1) the need to reserve the highest demand week in your season, and 2) deposit the week to Interval as early as possible - i.e. a year in advance of check-in is ideal.

    Hawaii: King's land 2BR 6/6 vs 6/4 size difference?

    @GT75 Thank you. That was a very informative sticky. I appreciate all the work you put in to organize that information. I still have the question about the washer/dryer in the 2 6 6 units. On my computer, the floor plan becomes blurry when I expand it.

    Hawaii: King's land 2BR 6/6 vs 6/4 size difference?

    I'm struggling with the same question. I confirmed Kings Land, 2 6 6 and it says 1069 sq ft and "No washer/dryer" in the unit. The unit which says 2 4 6 shows the 1269 sq ft and says it has a washer/dryer. I can deal with the smaller unit size, but lack of washer / dryer surprised me. Are...

    Newport Coast Villa's-things to do

    Later on Saturday, we did park by the 1100 building, then walked along the path just outside the water slides (they were operating that day), and found the stairs to go to down. The top of the stairs was not blocked, but the bottom had a chain, and a dangling sign that said "Fire Dept Access...

    Thank you. We later noticed the fire road entrance from the Newport Coast Drive side. We looked at that pool for the first time early in the week, but didn't notice the fire pits there.

    Newport Coast Villa's-things to do

    Where is the "fire road at the bottom of the resort?" We walked that way this morning, entered the fire road next to the 2000 building, but it took us a green belt, where we could see the golf course on the other side of the fence, but it did not seem to have a way down to the beach. Did we...

    Karen is spot on. When did you buy? In what State are key factors as to whether you are able to rescind; and if so, whether it makes sense to rescind.

    Grande Ocean in the new normal

    Thank you for the first hand information. Were pool towels at the pool, or in the unit? I'm planning to rebook our summer vacation, and have been keeping an eye on MGO. I am glad that your week was enjoyable.
