    Nanea resort view - can we rent it out?

    We bought a 2BR resort view EY at Nanea from Westin. Our deed shows 148,100 points, no unit number, no week, no mention of “Flex”. Reading through posts it’s not clear to me what we bought. Is Nanea part of a Flex program? If we don’t use a year, my understanding is we have 148.1k StarOptions to...

    The Nanea sand-entry pool is currently closed and is being refurbished. They are doing work on the pumps and replacing the sand. I was unable to get an estimate on when the work would be completed.

    Question about WKORV/WKORVN vs Nanea

    Hello: I have a somewhat urgent (because we just did this and we're still on site) question because we just purchased 2BR week from the developer at Nanea and I'm wondering if the things we liked about Nanea are also available from a resale WKORV/WKORVN: - we liked the floating/flex day concept...

    Nanea Villas and views?

    We are planning a "last minute" (this April as compared to 8 or 12 months out) trip and thought we might as well use points at Nanea rather than being far down on the timestamp list at our home resort. I understand they are not lock-off units and there are only 2 of us so far. I saw somewhere...

    Pitfalls of buying resale

    Good day, all! I am an owner at Westin Nanea. I pre purchased from the developer in October of 2016. I am using my timeshare and am happy to have it. I am considering purchasing more. Nanea wants to sell me the other half (EOYE) for 26k, or I can get WKORV for 33k. That being said, I want...
