Free – Monarch Grand Vacations Timeshare
www.monarchgrandvactions.com

Point-system timeshare, with 9 home resorts Eight resorts are drive-able from the SoCal area

244 points awarded every two years. Next set of points will available 9/1/12.
Currently have 133 pts available.
(If you run out of points, MGV will let you pay cash for a few more to complete your stay at any of the resorts.)

The number of points you would use vary per resort, time of the week & time of the year. What’s nice about the point-system is that you don’t have to go for a full week. Sometimes we would go to a resort for a couple of days. Just to give you an idea, here are some examples of the points for a week stay. The resorts allow you to make reservations of 6 days or more at 12 months. Shorter stay reservations can be made at 4 months (I think)

Cabo Azul Resort (Los Cabos, Mexico)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 133 – 222 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 155 – 288 per week
Bigger units available
Cancun Resort (Las Vegas, NV)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 155 per week
Bigger units available
Tahoe Seasons Resort (Tahoe, CA)
Jr. Villa (sleeps 2) 89 - 98 per week
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 111 – 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 8) 124 – 155 per week
Cedar Breaks Lodge & Spa (Cedar City, UT)
Jr. Villa (sleeps 2) 89 – 98 per week
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 98 – 111 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 120 - 144 per week
Bigger units available
Desert Isle of Palm Springs (Palm Springs, CA)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 155 per week
Palm Canyon Resort (Palm Springs, CA)
Jr. Villa (sleeps 2) 98 – 124 per week
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 111 – 155 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 133 -177 per week
Riviera Beach & Spa (Capistrano Beach, CA)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 111 – 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 144 – 155 per week
Bigger units available
Riviera Oaks Resort & Racquet Club (San Vicente Valley, CA)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 111 – 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 133 - 155
Riviera Shores Resort (near Capistrano Beach, CA)
One bedroom (sleeps 4) 133 per week
Two bedrooms (sleeps 6) 144 per week

The quarterly maintenance payment is $238 ($952 annually). I am currently paid up through the end of 2011. I am willing to negotiate 2012 association fees.


Monarch Grand charges a $100 "transfer fee" but since it is a vacation club there is no deed to transfer.

I've used all the points from Sept 2010 thru Aug 2012.

So If you want this now you'll get usage starting in Sept 2012 thru Aug 2014

ALSO

please note that Monarch Grand Vacations has been completely bought out by Diamond Resorts DRI

They (DRI) have to continue running it separate from the other DRI resorts but they may try and get current owners to "up-grade" to the full DRI onwerships. But at this time who knows.

combining points

Hi,

I already have own points with MGV. Will they allow me to combine the points from another account?

Hey there, I might be interested. On the 15th of Feb, my wife and I went through the presentation process and ended up buying a small package (60 points) for $6200. After doing some research i found out that i can save my money and takeover someone else. So I sent in my cancel form...

There still is very litttle info on how DRI will be managing the TS. So far no changes at all but we'll have to see.
