Exchanging into Newport (NCV) using efficiency?

I am wondering if anyone has had success with an OGS using an efficiency and trying to exchange into Newport Coast, NCV ? :shrug:

In the past, when I have manually searched NCV, I have seen it with a Marriott Desert Springs 2 - one bedroom but never with an efficiency. But I'm wondering if I were to place an OGS, if it is likely to get a match. I'm hoping to go there in the Sept-November timeframe in 2016.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has got a match with their efficiency. If so, I would be interested in which location and what TDI ? :ponder:

No help here. Similar to you we traded a DSV1 1BR platinum and got a unit at NCV in late October a few years ago. Never tried it with a studio. It will be interesting to see if anyone has had success with that.

Several years back I had an OGS using a studio that never hit. I put up a 1BR and it hit that night. This was for a week in April. We ended up retrading it anyway and never made it to NCV. I would say it would be very tough using a marginal studio. Using perhaps a top tier peak studio would prove better, but I wouldn't hold my breath. II doesn't hold studio units in very high regard in the past couple years.

I think an ongoing search gives a slight boost in trading power. I don't think the slight boost is going to be enough. Add to that is that even if it were enough in II's week's system a stronger trader bumps the weaker even if the weaker one had the ongoing search longer and still had been capable of the match. That means that not only would it have been capable of the match, there also could be no one with a 1 br Marriot probably gold season or above requesting the match.

THIS recent thread might provide you with some hope.

Yep, that was me. I put in an OGS with my DSV 1 studio (red) 12 months ahead in 2014 and got a match a month later into April 2015 NCV. I did that again earlier this year and got a match a couple of months ago into last week of May 2016.

...and if you read the link above, the studio sees some 2br at MKO and got a match to a 2br MKO week that I wanted but could not see online.

I've got one going now for two weeks at NCV, one with my Marriott Grande Vista 1 bedroom Gold and one with my lock off. I'll let you know what happens.

I've gotten into NCV with my lock off within the 59 day window in the past, not with an on going search, but this was in January or February check-in dates.

We spend the winter at NCV every year. We lock off and use our Canyon Villas studios to get two NCV weeks using an ongoing search. The Canyon Villas weeks are spring training weeks, so very high TDS, and the NCV weeks that we request are always in December or January, low season. Hope it works for you!

Thanks to all of you who commented. I found the information interesting and potentially helpful.

I'm guessing that it might be a real long shot to get a Sept/Oct week using my average TDI DSV white week but perhaps the extra boost that I might get with a Thanksgiving week may help a bit. But I would get a better boost using my red week with a high TDI deposit. So, I will probably try the white week first using an OGS and when available, I'll plan on using a strong red week.

Greg how many weeks do you stay at NCV, typically for the winter? Are you able to stay in the same villa?

Diane-

We are there 11-12 weeks. We arrive after Thanksgiving weekend and leave in late February. They have always been kind enough to keep us in the same villa for the entire stay. In fact, they usually allow us to have the same unit from year to year. I have found the folks there to be extremely easy to work with and accommodating in this regard.

I haven't stayed more than one week and we'd like to stay two this year. We find them more accommodating than most MVC staffs. Maybe because the resort is very large? And not as coveted in the winter?

We're trying for the first two weeks in February. If we get in, maybe we can meet for a libation around a firepit one evening?

Sounds great. Send me a PM when you get there. Also, watch the II getaways in month or two. There are usually late Jan/early Feb getaways available.

Nice thread. Good to read positive reports for one of our favorite resorts. Every September finds us at Newport since it opened. Former Southern CA residents we love staying on the coast and being able to visit north, south, east and not really west, from the locale. Three weeks from today! See you there! :)

Those getaways just loaded today. Not Interval's best pricing. Maybe they will drop a bit in a while.

Good luck!

So I was able to get NCV for two weeks, using the exchange and request method. I traded a studio and a one bedroom MGV gold and got check in Feb. 6 and 14, 2016. Now you'll see we have a gap day of Feb. 13 where we'll be sleeping in our car! LOL! I hope not. I'm hoping to retrade the Feb. 6 check in for Sunday, Feb. 7. Then we'll have two Sunday to Sunday weeks.

I had a hit with an OGS for the week before Memorial Day (2016) with my Ko Olina studio.
