    Bought our first timeshare

    After many years of thinking about it, research, etc we found a deal that we think will work for us, at a price we are very happy with. Found an Ebay deal for the Wyndham Kona Hawaiian Resort, Biennial, even years. This one, apparently has 2018 already paid for and not used so we could be...
