A very nice tug member gave us this last year, so we felt it was best to give another member the chance to take this if they want it. This is an every other year even marriott willow ridge lodge 2 bedroom lock off week, floats 11-20 with annual fees of 439 for a total of 878 for the usage. First usage is in 2014, so you can deposit this week next spring for trading purposes. We got two great trades out of our year of usage, the studio side was traded into a 2 bedroom september 2011 week at oceana palms and the 1 bedroom side was used to trade into our upcoming may week at Marriott Surfwatch in a 3 bedroom unit.
Reason for giving this week away is we took this week last spring before our trip to surf watch and we fell in love with that resort! So much that we picked up a silver and gold week there, so we need to reduce our Marriott holdings! Buyer to pay for transfer company and $120 marriott ROFR/transfer fee(though they did waive the $95 ROFR fee when we took this, but no guarantee they will again). Any questions, please ask!

Great chance to own a Marriott for just closing up front and low annual fees for a 2 bedroom lock off!

Bumping again. I am able to complete the transfer myself if the new owner is ok with that as that would reduce your out of pocket fees to either $25 or $120 depending on whether marriott waives the rofr fee this time. any questions, please feel free to ask.

I don't know what is worse, ebay or this TUG forum....tempting, so so so so tempting....would love to have that Marriot preference for sightings (they still have that, right?). But I have to get all my current new purchases under control before adding another one.

So, would somebody PLEASE take them up on this offer!!!!!!

I agree with SOS.

This would run about $800 on Sumday for a non-lockoff 2 bedroom unit. Someone needs to pick up this bargain! My husband told me absolutely no more timeshares, but I'm pretty tempted.

Not sure they do.

If they do, it may not be worth much since Marriott tends to hold inventory in the trust till the very last minute, then dump it into II. If you can check into Ko Olina TONIGHT the "preference" may be useful.

Preference is still there (I test with Marriott & non-Marriott) but I agree that there are a lot of late deposits. But there is still value, especially when they make a bulk deposit. Check out the sightings board.

Do they actually wave the fee or just the right to exercise? It is usually part of the closing cost and I don't see sellers refunding it. Just curious.

If they exercise, they don't charge the fee. If they waive, they charge the fee.

Still available?
No, transfer in progress sorry!

The week was given to me off this board and Marriott waived the fee at the time as it was a "gift" in their eyes with no money changing hands. The fee waiver had nothing to do with whether or not they exercised rofr.
