This thread shows that a resort can indeed not have runaway maintenance fees and still be well run. I am talking about increases, not absolute levels of fees, so underfunded reserves cannot be the explanation. A high reserve fee that doesn't change and a low reserve fee that doesn't change are both zero increases.

Another with no increases is Fox Hills in Mishicot, Wisconsin. $498 for a 2 bed, and it's been that way for many years. I don't think we have experienced a single increase. This is one of my RCI Points resorts, so I get like 56,500 points for $498. Not bad.

I'm at QH now and will make sure Nikki knows her efforts are noticed and appreciated.
Two responses from Nikki Krivjanick, General Manager at Quarter House, posted here with her permission:

1) We appreciate you and all the other owners that notice how hard we are working to keep everything great for you. It can be a challenge but I must say when you love your job it makes things easier for everyone. I will always give my best to you all and find ways to cut costs. I hope you are having a great stay with us and if you need me for anything please do not hesitate to call on me. Have the front desk locate me in the building as I am working in some of the rooms moving things around with my staff.

2) FYI We are GOLD CROWN for 2020! Just received the good news and I thought you may want to know this.
Happy Thanksgiving! and I will be back on Friday morning.

Someone at this resort is doing any excellent job in controlling operation costs and still maintaining this resort at Gold Crown level. IMHO.

Received the Fall 2019 newsletter from Quarter House. As noted above, maintenance fees stay the same for 2020. One thing QH did to hold down costs is Housekeeping is now only available on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

One note worth passing along:

QUOTE

CITY ORDINANCE ON SHORT TERM RENTALS

Due to a new Ordinance from The City of New Orleans regarding short term rentals, The Quarter House Home Owner's Association wants you to be aware of what is required to post a listing

A permit must be obtained by each owner from The City of New Orleans (with a fee of approximately $500) to list suites for rent on sites such as Air B'n'B, HomeAway, VRBO, etc. If not done correctly according to the ordinance rules, The City can charge you costly penalties.

Please keep in mind that our policies do allow owners to self-rent or to use Quarter House's rental program. Any questions regarding this matter should be directed to Nikki Krivjanick, General Manager.

Does Ron Parise ever post anymore?


He was on today @ 8:13 am.

His last actual posting was September 4th, 2019.

He used to be a prolific poster; I have no idea why he is not posting like he used to.

Maybe he will read this and let us all know!

If you go back and review his posts, you find that he no longer is involved in the timeshare business to the extent he was. There's a lot more to it than that but if you do the research, you can put it together.

Ron had experiences that most of us couldn't even think of. He had strong views about many things but he was hardly the burning bush and the forum carries on, especially when it comes to Quarter House, where I'm pretty sure Ron had no ownership.
