    eligibility window

    when i look at my booking eligibility lately, it seems like it's broken. i own a legacy HGVC deed, sadly bought into HGVMax, and i think this is for a property not from HGVC legacy. has anyone else noticed this behavior? note the window in the green header is only 1 week.

    Bluegreenowners not working: Captcha error, cannot login to site

    Has anyone else been unable to access the Bluegreen website? I can't login. I've tried different browsers. I cleared cookies on my main browser. It seems to be on their end.

    Wyndham Stealing Vino Bello Inventory

    So, Shell Vacations agents are being told (again) to tell owners "the system is down" for days on end at Vino Bello, but apparently this is actually because they are taking inventory to allocate to Wyndham Owners only. As owners who are deeded in this property, something has got to be done...

    New website makes flexible bookings cumbersome - phone better?

    Hello! I am non-VIP, resale, 10+ year owner, who lives in FLorida, pretty experienced at booking advantageously. Since I live in Florida, going to Bonnet Creek for us is a normal thing. I would just look to see what was available, different unit sizes, different dates, looking to see what...

    Cancel & Rebook / New Website

    A number of posts have brought up when trying to cancel and rebook to take advantage of our discounts their reservation seems to have gone into a black hole. Today I was told an "enhancement" of the system is when a reservation is cancelled it is automatically run through new logic and given to...
