    Can someone please explain Vistana Flex Points. I did read the FAQ's thread someone posted and that was very helpful.

    Vistana Falls 2bd/2ba - FREE - Fixed week 12 - usage starting in 2020 - no closing costs

    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

    Hyatt Wild Oak Even Week 45 (1400 points)

    I know the resort is taken, but with Hyatt, is it hard to trade into other Hyatt's than you own? So if I wanted to go to Key West every year, would it be wise to only buy in KW or would buying this unit be just as good since I could trade in? Hope you know what I mean lol

    Best II Resort trader

    Oh, I have another question...If you book an extra vacation or whatever they call it in II, do you "have" to stay the entire week? Or can you leave after 3 or 4 nights without penalty.

    Wyndham Reef Resort

    Thank you for your reply, I have read elsewhere about the electric bill at the end of your stay. My daughter will have to call to ask about that, because it has no mention of electric on her certificate.

    Hyatt Coconut Point Plantation Presentation.

    May be a good time to buy in. After Vistana resort did all their renovations, they offered me (a resale owner) the option to go into Staroptions free. Moved to Orlando and gave my unit away. Seller's remorse lol
