saturday check in $500 + $200 special assessment 2006
sunday check in $520 + $200 special assessment 2006
They plan the special assessment for the next two years
2007 and 2008. Also they are considering removing the jacuzzi tubs.
I deposited my 2006 week 22 in January and it has lousy trade power.
My Durban Sand 2007 week trades way better.

Gee, I don't remember seeing anything in my dues for this year about the $200 special assessment for 07 & 08. What a ripoff. We've had special assessments for at least the last 5 years.

Williamsburg normally doesn't see any trade power until kids are out of school, Wk25 at the earliest.

I own a unit at Patriots' Place (week 16, 2 BR lockout, sleeps 8/8) and at Kingsgate (week 17, 2 BR but not a lockout, sleeps 6/6). Both are fixed weeks. I'm planning on depositing one of the 2007 weeks to see if I can trade for something in Sedona or Flagstaff in July, when I'll be there with friends.

Does anyone have a guess as to which week would get me better trading value?

The Patriots' Place unit is a bit bigger because it's a lockout, but that resort seems to be struggling more than the Kingsgate resort. Patriots' Place has been downgraded to "Hospitality" while Kingsgate is "Gold Crown."

Maybe I should just deposit them both and see what comes up.

The small size differential and the difference in rating will have little effect on the trade power. Holy Week is Wk13 and Easter Week is Wk14 in 2007 so you miss out on that extra pull, there should be little difference between your Wk16 and a Wk17.

Are you depositing PP as a 2BR or two 1BRs? My experience with Williamsburg 1BRs is that they trade for anything in RCI that a 2BR the same week would trade for.

Wow, that's interesting. I've never tried that. Thanks for the tip!!

Hmm, I might even try trading the smaller 1BR first and see what that picks up.

Right now the week I already have on deposit (a last-minute deposit from a couple of years ago) will only get me a studio in Sedona during my time frame. I was hoping that a unit deposited a year ahead of time instead of at the last minute would have enough trading power to get me a bigger place. But if I can get another studio, then we have enough space for our group of four adults. Hmm....

Unfortunately, even though Red, your weeks and other weeks in Williamsburg when kids are NOT out of school, do not trade very well. Williamsburg is one of those places with a glut of timeshares that are usually not in great demand except when families can travel in summer. My first timeshare purchase was resale Sunterra in Wmbg, a week 52, back when I thought Red=Red. It did not trade well, that's why I converted early to Club Sunterra.

Oh well. I got these weeks from my parents, who bought them from the developer years ago. They always preferred Williamsburg in the spring. It's too hot in the summer. They bought the timeshares to use, not to trade... but now they're too disabled to be able to use them. And I find myself more interested in going elsewhere.

I have had okay luck renting a week each year to someone at work. It's only a few hours away from here by car. But people with school-aged kids generally can't take them because my weeks don't coincide with Spring Break. :(

I'll see how much luck I have exchanging next year's weeks instead of renting them.

Allie,
I believe that Garden Week in Williamsburg will fall in either week 16 or 17 next year. There will be more demand for that week, but probably only slightly.

You could only hope, that's like the TS salesman who pushes Grand Illumination week, the difference is imperceptible. GI week is already for rent for peanuts on Extra Vacations. :)

We were in Williamsburg last year at Greensprings. Friends came with us and we arranged for them to stay at Powhatan. It was their first experience in a timeshare and we had been talking it up so much...we were truly embarassed because their unit at Powhatan was so disgusting (dirty, broken air conditioning, problem with the tub, etc.), and they even had trouble at the restaurant there with dirty utensils, etc. Needless to say, they have no interest in timesharing now, which is too bad because they have four kids and really need the space!

Was there a difference when Christmas fell in wk 52? Just this past year (2005) Williamsbrg was packed during week 52.
