We decided to sell MarBrisa and trade into instead. Costly mistake but not as bad as purchasing direct.
Well, we still have our Platinum BayClub EOY which is not an HGVC member. Is joining HGVC worthwhile at this point?

HGVC King's Land 2BR Premier 23.040K Points.
I don’t think its worth paying the enrollment plus club fees every year just to get eoy points.

Are these the points you would use at Marbrisa? BC point fees are not at the low end of the ratio, another reason not to enroll.

Marbrisa is not easy to get prime summer weeks July/August, best to own if you want those. Sept/October are nice weeks to visit, the summer crowds thin out and the weather is still nice. May/June we have the overcast gloom, it just started this weekend.

Overcast gloom, that’s funny. In Metro Detroit, we are expecting up to 5 inches of snow tonight. I would take the overcast gloom in Carlsbad over snow in April any day.

We are local in OC and already have a Sept vacation booked. We need warmer weather. That’s why I love Desert where I grew up.
