Is it possible to book 8 months out? The 12 month rule would normally apply however I purchased ten months out from when I want to travel.

I am looking at going off season around Feb '09.

Thank you.

Yes but you have lost home resort priority. You will have the same chances as any other Starwood owner.

Thank you.

It isn't not my home resort but I was wondering if 8 months out was too close to the date of travel.

I booked exactly 8 mos out at Harborside. Gotta be Johnny on the spot right when they open though. Took me about 5 days of calling to be sucessful. Good luck, it is doable.

Feb is hardly off season. Febuary is peak season, especially is its around Presidents Day.

Welcome! If you are not an owner at Harborside, then the earliest you are allowed to even try for a reservation is 8 mos. out. Only Harborside owners can make a reservation between 8 and 12 mos. out. We are already within 8 months, so you can call now.

For lots more info. about how Starwood works, see the Starwood FAQ at the top of the board.

In response to the post by tomandrobin. Forgive my ignorance but doesn't the season correspond to the point value of a days worth of stay?

If this is true wouldn't the days that I am looking at be considered off season?

Thanks.

Usually your season corresponds to demand (e.g platinum week = high demand week). However, that's not always the case. For instance, Hawaii properties are all platinum weeks within Starwood, but July is in much higher demand than October.

Generally speaking, warmer locales are in higher demand when the weather on the mainland is colder. And almost all of the timeshares (except the desert ones) are in higher demand in the summer (when the kids are out of school) or when there's a Monday or Friday holiday (because working folks only have to take 4 days off of work to enjoy a 9 day vacation.

February is Platinum season and pretty high demand--I think you would be pretty lucky to secure something at 8 months out as at that point you are in competition with every other Starwood owner who can call for Harborside at that point.
