That’s interesting because the MVC ratio after a decade is closer to 60/40. MVC uses II for trading. An internal system was never created. And if StarOptions are going away, why are ppl still being offered to retro resale contracts? Goodness these sales reps give the trade a bad name.
DSVI does not have ROFR. Just purchased there after 3 Shadow Ridge Platinum attempts. 2bdrm Platinum Desert were going for 4.5k late last yr.
I went with Desert because we would actually use It. Plus we own other traders that can get us to Hawaii
Since I own both Marriott and Vistana, the priority is great. I do wish Hyatt was included but Hyatt is now separated. Hopefully it will change once Vistana is fully integrated.
Now thanks to Sightings, I have noticed more bulk drop ins so it does look like Hyatt is on a similar schedule.
Agree. My issue is how he dealt w/ employees. I have been to multiple Caribbean Islands and # 1 complaint is how entitled many First Worlders are, especially Americans.. And unfortunately the authors tone places him promptly in that group of First Worlders who are hard to please nor satisfied.
As others suggested, I would look into Marriott as well as Vistana. You can purchase a Vistana trader Vistana mandatory, or go w/ a Marriott. If you want Disney, buy or rent DVC.(We live SoCal so DisneyWorld is of zero interest. Ex Season Pass Holder).
We have young children as well so tied...
I am a manual trader as well. I follow the Sightings Board and look weekly on II. Since we are school schedule, I always have the schedule on hand so I can get whatever interests me. So far we have 5 week long vacations planned.
I am already waiting to book our 2021 vacations. I already...
I agree to rent until you are sure what you want. I tried to purchase Marriott DSVII Platinum and ROFR was excised both times. I then decided to purchase DSVI Platinum for the same price w/ Spring Break already booked. Worked out wonderfully for us. Our intent is only to use or rent because...
Thanks. We love MarBrisa and Palisades entry into LEGOLAND however since we share local, shorter stays are easier for us.
I will continue to check out EBay. We don’t need an excessive amount of points since we already own w/in the MVC family. I just want access to go to the various TS in CA...
We have had stays at Wyndham in Oceanside thanks to RCI trades however we are interested in staying more often in the SD area.( We use to own a HGVC in the area but the limited resorts in the area was a deciding factor for us to sell.) We live less than 2hrs away and spend a good amount of time...
Yes, there are hiking trails throughout the area so I would ask.
Check out Laguna Beach and it’s art galleries. There’s nice beach town eateries and tacos. Love the beach at the Montage as well as the view from its bar. Go further up you will hit the other resorts such as the Ritz in Dana...
