Weather is just awesome, better than last year. I was shocked to find out they stopped having the owners reception? They said there were complaints of noise?? They gave us $16 worth of drink coupons at Longboards instead. Going to tour the new towers tomorrow. About 1/3 less people here due to the economy, Sat night there was nobody out.

I wonder who would complain about the noise? When we attended it was not noisey.

What is the phase of construction? Do you have pictures?

Would you do me a favor? I am looking for an exotic car rental place on Maui. I was told there was one in Lahaina, but I think there is one on the left side of the hwy on the way to Lahaina. Can you tell me the name of it, or if you see any in the brochures. I would appreciate it.

Thanks and enjoy your stay.

I would love to know when the Napili Tower will be completed and open including the pool and if that building will have a pool bar. We will be there around the first week of April 09 in the original building. Glad to read the weather is beautiful!

We're using our Aruba Surf Club week in Feb 09 for the first time, and while my whole family is looking forward to it, we all have said "wish we were going to Maui". There is just nothing like it. When I hear someone say "I'm at MOC now" I get so envious.






Enjoy every minute of your stay!!

Regards.
Joe

Iwill take some photos of the new tower and post them next week when we get home. I only have the black berry with me now. Sitting in the grass in front of the pirate pool now loving the view of the ocean and my Longboard lager ; ). I will look for the exotic car place on the way to Mama's for our 13th wedding anniversary. Aloho

Usual Questions

Enjoy your stay at my favorite place. I have 3 3/4 months before I get to go back.

I suspect that many of us have the usual questions;

What prices are they charging in the Napili Villa?

What percentage of Napili Villa is sold?

Is Marriott going to do onsite resales once the new buildings are sold?

our Maui countdown has started... 6 1/2 months to go, although no guarantee of MMO, yet. Still waiting for an exchange to come through :D but I have two back ups in play.

When I saw the heading, I thought this was about Marriott Ocean Club (MOC) in Aruba but you mean Maui Ocean Club!(MOC)!!! Same confusion will happen with Marriott Ocean Pointe (OP) on Singer Island, FL & the new Marriott Oceana Palms(OP) on Singer Island, FL. Do people say AOC...for Aruba Ocean Club & ASC...Aruba Surf Club???:confused:

Had our sales presentation, yesterday. The new tower is 45% sold. The 2br ocean front. EOY in the new tower is $42950. $1k off special, no points. They offered to give 100% credit for my eoy ov 1 br but that would have still cost me $25k more.

Can you describe how far along they are on construction? Is the building fully enclosed?

The new tower looks done from the outside. It's fully enclosed, I can see ceiling fans in the rooms. They are working on the parking structure and the pool now.

Doing the 60% math, it doesn't look like the Napili OF EY price has changed for a while...

We are heading there during Thanksgiving with a MOC OV.

Is all the "pool view" essentially "non construction view"?? Is any building better than other as to rehab/condition status ??

I am a also staying a night in hana Maui Hotel. Other than taking our time and exploring the various beach, Is there anything that we should not miss ??

No Owners Party

They may have temp discontinued the Owners Party because the party could be an opportunity for people to share their misery. There could be too much discussion about the bad news on cost of airfare, lack of liquidity if you wanted to buy, and worst of all, if you are at the party and own at Maui, and know you will have problem paying your maintenance fees this year, you might have a heck of a good place to bring up in casual discussion with other owners that you want to sell.
That's sales competition right on the property. If I saw some couple with a name tag that says they own in Aruba, Paris, Colorado, I would see them as good people to strike up a conversation with. They just MIGHT be in a cash position to be buyers!

The middle pool area is not affected by construction. Roughly half of the Molokai tower faces towards the Napili construction area, so you may prefer being in the Maui wing or Lanai tower.

After Thanksgiving, they only have two months to finish all construction, so the negative affects should be waining...

We have been here for week on the molokai side of MOC overlooking the pool and we have not heard any construction noise. I would not mind a 2br OF in the villas but I think we will go re-sale or continue to rent the even year from another owner. I rented a 1BR OV from another owner for $1400 for the week.

Four minutes from the beach, PRP, HHI
At the Aruba Ocean Club, when we were there this summer, they no longer had a question and answer session. Instead they had a cocktail party where everyone had too much to drink and didn't have a chance to ask any hard questions.

moc lahaina villas has eoy ?

I did not know that moc lahaina villas had eoy villas. Are all these units oceanfront or do they have oceanview, garden view etc ? If so what is the pricing ? I was strongly considering buying 2 bdrm eoy at the westin maui but this would change my plans. ( not crazy about moc old building eoy not having real kitchens) I would also most likely be waiting for resales but have not seen any yet on redweek etc. If anyone has info on this please let me know. thanks

E-bay weeks usually sell for a lot less than weeks bring on redweek. Here are several e-bay weeks for sale:

The announcement I saw said that only the OFs were going to be offered as EOY. Anyone else see different?
