Thank you. I’m new to timesharing and exchanging. When I’m on II I see The Resort at Diamante listed. Is it possible that the resort be listed but never come up for a trade. Maybe my resort doesn’t have enough power? I’m using a SDO
Thanks all! I see the studio pop up periodically on II. Is there any chance of trading into a 1BDR with a SDO 1BR. I would not be looking for peak season. Maybe October/November(before Thanksgiving). Thanks again for all your help!
Wondering what the kitchen is like on the studio side. Based on the photos on the website it looks like just a coffee maker and microwave. Does anyone know if there's a stovetop, refrigerator and a toaster(we like to make egg sandwiches for breakfast :))?
Are the studio side kitchens for...
Is there a way to tell the trading power of your unit in II? For instance, is there a way to tell if it is in the realm of possibility to trade into Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Diamante in Cabo or any other resort out there?
I have a SDO floating week 1-52 SDO 2 BDR LO. From what I...
Does an ongoing search = vacation exchange request? If they're not the same thing, what is the difference?
Also, I hope to trade into one of the Hawaii VSE resorts with a 1 BRD premium SDO. I would like to travel Oct-Nov 2021. How soon do I need to make the request?
I saw a posting on the sightings forum that listed a property on interval. I did a search on interval and it did not appear. Does this mean that my unit does not have enough power or did someone else pick it up? Is there a way to know?
We're in the process of closing on an annual SDO that floats weeks 1-52 deeded week 27. We paid $3.25 plus the closing costs of $500. I guess we didn't really care about the $500 closing cost because in the end $500 isn't that much skin in the game. Hoping to use it as a trader for Hawaii or...
I picked it up for $3.25 so no, not a lot at stake. When I do pay my winning bit does that obligate me to take the unit even if the estoppel sheet show something different than was advertised?
Thanks all again
Does the trading power come from the fact that it's a 2 bdr lockoff or the fact that it's SDO. Say if I picked up a 1 bedroom would that give the same trading power on interval? I'm guessing part of the benefit of a two bdr is it gives you 2 weeks but if you don't necessarily need two weeks is...
Thank you all for your replies. I think I might have to go shopping :). I do have a couple more questions:
1: I should be looking for a 2 BR LO week 1-52, correct? I understand they are rare but are the "true platinum" units worth pursuing?
2: If I would deposit a SDO week would that...
It's been a while since I've looked into timesharing. We've rented a few and have enjoyed it very much. Just got back from Grand Solmar at Land's End in Cabo San Lucas and it got me thinking again.
A few years ago, before the change from Starwood to Vistana, Starwood to Marriott etc., there...
On the website, reservation.gov they mention that there are 1,300 tickets to the Arizona monument available each day on a first come, first serve basis. Does anyone know how fast these would get snapped up for a Sunday tour in October?
