I was there March 10 through 17th and took the owner's update tour.I guess I should have known better than to expect an accurate answer from a salesman! I have already confirmed with the main sales office that this could be done, I just wanted the price...
Thanks for trying!!!!
The short answer is they give you back 100% of what they last sold your unit for toward the purchase of a unit in WKORVN.
Apparently, Starwood is gobbling up the WKORV units and putting them on the rental market. If really pressed, they'll talk about reselling them, but I was told "only to current owners that want more weeks at the same place".
One is left with the assumption that the rental market is hot, hot, hot for Starwood. They can get top rental dollar because, after all, they're Starwood. They've got the reservation system and the masses are way more comfortable with that than renting from an owner directly.
Which starts me on my rant about Starpoints and why aren't they raising our Starpoints value along with rental rates...yada, yada, yada...
