William Wallace was born in 1270. Outlander takes place 500 years later. The book/series briefly starts in 1946, and then goes back to 1743, in the era before the Jacobite Rising in Scotland (1745.) Currently, the TV series is in the pre-American Revolutionary War era: the war began in 1775...
You can only get one exchange at a time, so whatever is available first, is what you will get.
No, and you are unlikely to get 3 choices at the same moment in time, anyway.
You have priority for Vistana exchanges, so it doesn't hurt to include a Marriott, but Marriott owners have priority for...

Don't worry if...
Tom - I was also at the resort for 3 weeks recently, and I could not disagree with you more. There are a multitude of problems with the resort and management, and the only entity that benefits if we stop complaining is Wyndham.
Update: the owner who sent a message to Owner Services on Jan. 14th (a simple question) finally got an answer, on Feb. 10th. But he got a canned answer, and it was not the question that he asked at all. So he send a 3rd request, and finally got an on topic answer on Feb. 11th. So it took...
I need suggestions for timeshare resorts in New England:
• I can exchange with II, RCI, and GPX. I particularly want to visit Boston and Philadelphia and see the fall leaves.
• I'm thinking that for Boston I will request Marriott Custom House, but would like other New England suggestions...
*I moved your thread to the Kauai Beach Villas Forum.
Currently, you cannot set up an online account with a KBV weeks deed, because you don't have Wyndham points.
This is the number for KBV weeks reservations: 866-523-8477. It's the same number/office that we used pre-GPX for reservations...
I know an owner who sent a message to Vistana on Jan. 14th - and still hasn't received a response. But he knows they received his message because they have sent him 3 automated responses: "We will respond to your message ASAP blah, blah, blah."
I know another owner who sent a message on Dec...
The tax is based on a formula which is based on the value of the unit, so it varies by resort/quality/size/view. For example, at the Westin Nanea, the 3 bdm. OF units have a charge of $32 per night.
At Kauai Beach Villas (an older resort) the fee for the 2 bdm. OF units is $11.71 per night.
The only new thing we did was a Lydgate Chocolate Farm Tour. Ye$, tho$e Lydgate$.
The tour was interesting, but I thought it was way too pricey for what you get: basically, an interesting tour of a small farm, with fruit and chocolate tasting, at about $100 per person. Get this: their candy...
Here is the Reader's Digest Version:
- We were on Kauai for 3 weeks and the first 2 weeks it was rainy and windy all day, every day.
- The first week, I had an allergic reaction to Papaya and broke out with a rash all over my face that lasted about a week.
- We only saw one whale in 3 weeks -...
Hello boys and girls - I have been traveling since Christmas, so if you think I've been MIA - you're right.
I'm back and I just updated my avatar. If you like it - thank you! If you don't like it - keep it to yourself! ;)
Just to clarify: LT Transfers is a timeshare title company that many Tuggers like and use. However, LTT can't sell your timeshare for you, but once you have a buyer, they can handle the paperwork and do the title transfer for you. I have used them many times.
There is no fool proof method of accepting payment unless you meet someone in person and get cash. PayPal is a good choice and really not so scary. Remember, you always have control of your reservation, so if the rental falls apart, you just take the reservation out of the renter's name and...
