    Studio Homewood Suites Review in Concord Ca - Timeshare Lite

    Today I am review a Homewood Suites Studio in Concord, Ca. I call this "timeshare Lite" because the unit has many of the features of a timeshare (full kitchen, pool, activities, Studio), but typically not as elegant as a timeshare... This is why you take the points when doing an owner update...

    Studio Worldmark Clearlake Review in Clearlake California

    I enjoyed the Worldmark Clear Lake. It is an out of the way place that is a good place for me to unwind. There are local wineries and of course there is the lake. A lot of people rent a pontoon boat on the lake. I love walking out on the pier in the morning with my coffee and just stare out...

    Studio WorldMark Valley Isle Review in Lahaina Maui Hawaii

    About 30 miles from the Main Airport in Maui sits the WorldMark Valley Isle. The unique situation about the studio units is that they both (yep.... only two) are ocean front and have sunset views. So, if you can get one the sunsets are amazing (Video of one included). There is a nice...

    Timeshare Traveler Episode 91... Extend Hawaii Paradise by choosing a Studio

    More is better... More time in Hawaii is more better (author's pun). Sometimes in life a small compromise can be significant. Sometimes this depends on your perspective. If a longer experience is more of a luxury than the place you stay, then maybe you should consider a studio timeshare for...
