Rooms Codes - if you have specific bedding requirements pay attention at this resort, as room codes dictate bedding.
With other earlier resort towers at this location, PLUS mean an Ocean View room. Beware that at this tower PLUS is ONLY a partial ocean view. If you want a better ocean view you need to move up to the PREMIER category. Just saying you are warned, POV and OV and not the same thing, so level set your expectations. Even the room descriptions for POV rooms states "Units offer a city view with limited ocean view from the lanai."

1BD - 1 Bedroom - City/Resort View, King in Master
1DD - 1 Bedroom - City/Resort View, 2 Doubles in Master
1BP - 1 Bedroom PLUS - Partial Ocean View, King in Master
1DP - 1 Bedroom PLUS - Partial Ocean View, 2 Doubles in Master
1BX - 1 Bedroom PREMIER - Ocean View, King in Master

Room Layout, Location and Views

Kalia Tower is a combination hotel/timeshare tower. Kalia timeshare units are converted hotel rooms. There are a total 72 timeshare units in the Kalia Tower. The rooms are located on 6 floors (floor # 12 through 18; there is no 13th floor).

The studio units here have a few bonus features, they are ALL Oceanview, they have balconies (Lagoon Tower Studios mostly do not), a more modern decor than the Lagoon tower. Catch, there is only 6, 1 per floor. They are attached to a 1 BR so you may have some noise through the interconnecting door. They are one of the harder units to book as they go so fast.

The rest of the timeshares floors are 1 BR units which are either Mountain/City views (of which they are 24 units), and Ocean View (42 units).

Rooms Codes - if you have specific bedding requirements pay attention at this resort, as room codes dictate bedding.

Thanks, I only had to pull the information that you and others previously posted. I just wanted to ensure that I got it correct because it is confusing.

Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Anderson Ocean Club

Phone: 843-213-5340

Strand Capital Group built Anderson Club. They sold units as wholly owned condos -- you can still buy them today. However, as sales lagged, they partnered with HGVC to unload half their units in 2011. Today, their website says...

"The project consists of 172 Hilton Grand Vacation timeshare units and 132 rental condominiums. On-site project management is provided by Hilton Grand Vacations." The Strand-units not sold to HGVC are rented thru Oceana -- a Wyndham TS rental service.

Here are some comments made in a 2013 thread. Don't know if anything changed
FAVC is great depending on what you use it for...

I have been reading the thread on FAVC and it seems many people don't like it. As for our family, we love it! We purchased FAVC resale a couple years ago for practically nothing ($1000 and first year MF plus all transfer fees paid) for a 5000 point annual contract plus 3400 carryover points, expiring 2048 . We wanted to buy into the HGVC system, but the reasons why I chose this share:

Comparable HGVC resales were $5000-$10000 for a 5000 point contract and HGVC has first right of refusal on all but LG Flamingo. I also looked at Bay Club, also an affiliate in Hawaii with no ROFR, but the buy-in was higher and annual maintenance fees also higher and you had to pay a large points conversion fee to get into HGVC.

No high activation, transfer or point conversion fees (low $100 fee paid by seller).

Lower maintenance fees for comparable point values. $915 for 5000 points including club dues, many HGVC properties are $900 - $1200.

Lower (non-home resort) reservation fee. All reservations need to be made by phone due to upgrades on the website, but $49 fee is lower than HGVC $89 phone reservation.

Same open season rates and availability.

Complementary guest vouchers (HGVC charges $39.00).

We have been able to book in Las Vegas (where we usually go to visit family) with a couple months notice at the Flamingo, and shorter notice at the other 2 properties without any problem. Most recently I booked at the LG Flamingo earlier this month in September for Veteran's Day holiday weekend, and there was still availability.

We can borrow points from the next year for no additional charge, just like HGVC.

FAVC also allow you to book at Club Intrawest properties, where I don't think HGVC can. Only 5 properties, but this gives more options for staying in the system.

FAVC allows you to use your points to book at Posadas hotels in Mexico. We haven't travelled to Mexico much, but if you do, they have a lot of hotels to choose from in many resort and metro areas.

Same RCI points conversion and fees as HGVC.

Cons:

Transfer took a long time...really long. Over 6 months.

Points don't roll over and have to be banked by March (for $91 fee, compare to $89 HGVC). I believe you can rescue points at HGVC for an additional fee, but an option with FAVC. This hasn't been an issue for us since we have used them all every year.

Can't combine contracts if we were to buy more points resale. The only way to do this is to buy a point package from the developer at their price $6/point...no way! I don't know how this compares to HGVC, probably the same.

The contract is a "Right of Use" for a term, you don't own it. The contract we purchased was through 2048. We have 36 years remaining on it and I don't know anyone who has owned their timeshare for 36 years anyway.

FAVC members can't use HGVC properties in CA, CO or NY. FAVC members can't convert club points to HHonors points. Neither is a big deal for us. I am a diamond member with Hhonors, and the point conversion is not favorable in most instances.

All in all, we are very happy with FAVC. We were able to purchase into the HGVC system via FAVC for a low buy-in price, relatively low maintenance fees and lower relative transaction fees. I would like to see their upgrades to the website complete to check point balances and make reservations, but their customer service reps are very helpful in the interim. We rarely plan vacations a year out, and so far availability hasn't been an issue for us. We have only travelled within the HGVC system with our FAVC points and have been very satisfied with the process and availability.
I agree with AZAkiMom. I've had a very positive experience with FAVC too. The only major downside I've found is that you have to pay a membership fee with each resale contract you buy. This is not a factor if you buy one large contract, obviously.

I've had no problem combining two accounts for a Home or Club season reservation - they usually do it instantly. Once I wanted to book Open Season with points from two accounts and they asked for an email requesting the combine. I had an answer and the reservation completed in a couple of hours.

I liked the old online reservation system and I hope the new one is even stronger. In the meantime, the telephone reservation people are very nice and very helpful.

Booking Posadas Hotels was quick and easy and seemed to be a good use of my points. This allows you to stay in hotels in South America and all over Mexico.

Since my relatives don't want the timeshares after I'm gone, RTU is perfect - they don't have to sell it or go through the paperwork to decline it and I don't have to sell it should I outlive it - it will just evaporate. :wave:

All in all, I'm very happy with FAVC.

The Bay Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort

(1) Resort Name - The Bay Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort
(2) Website - http://bayclub.hgvc.com/
(3) Club Rules / Guide - tbd
(4) HOA Documentation / News - http://bayclub.hgvc.com/hoa-updates.html
(5) Resale department - tbd
(6) HGVC membership (mandatory/optional/grandfathered/restricted) - optional (additional fee required for HGVC membership)
(7) Major Exchange Company affiliation - RCI (individual membership fee required).
(8) Developer/Partnership company - Nikken Corporation
(9) Please explain in detail the difference between your affiliate resort and HGVC developed resort.

Home week reservations are different than the HGVC developed resorts. Home week reservation are booked through the Bay Club and all weeks are available for booking at the beginning of the preceding year.

To ensure compliance with Bay Club Vacation Owners Association Program Rules, all reservation requests must be submitted in writing. Reservation Request forms are made available late in the year for the upcoming use year. Starting in early January, all reservations requests will be processed in the order in which they are received. Reservation Requests received before January will be date stamped upon receipt. A written confirmation will be emailed to the owner once the reservation request has been processed. ln the event the reservation request cannot be fulfilled, the owner will be contacted to discuss alternate dates.

For example: 2019 Home Resort Reservations can be processed as early as January 2018. Reservation Request Forms for 2019 Home Week Reservations will be available in late 2017. lf you do not plan to use your Bay Club Home Week then there is no need to complete the form. Here's an example of a Reservation Request Form - https://hgvclub.com/hoa/167/.


You no longer have to pay a year in advance While you reserve in advance you pay in December just before the year you are using.

Another quirk. You can't block book. (Multiple weeks in a row.) Each week is a separate booking. I usually mark on all forms that I want a block booking, and that I can be flexible about when. (I go usually in January, and I take the time to actually talk with the staff to see what is available the next year. No Problems so far. . . )

(And no problems with the staff, either. They seem particularly appreciative of owners who are not HGVC points members, because we are the repeat customers who come back year after year.)

Also, for those direct owners wanting to book a particular unit, be aware that the units are split into different periods, per week starting date. Unit X will always be starting Thursdays, Y on Fridays, Z on Saturdays and, Unit P on Sundays. So if you want unit CCC for your week, you need to find what week it is assigned and book that period.

From December 2015 Vacation Ownership Audit (VOA)
- http://bayclub.hgvc.com/hoa-updates.html
NOTE 1 - THE ASSOCIATION
The Bay Club Vacation Owners Association (the “Association”) was incorporated on January 27, 1995, under the laws of Hawaii as a nonprofit, non-stock corporation to operate and manage a timeshare ownership program at the Bay Club at Waikola Beach Resort (the “Condominium”) located in Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii. The Association consists of 168 units (8,568 unit-weeks). The owners of all unit-weeks in the Condominium are the only members.

Nikken Corporation (the “Developer”), a Hawaii corporation, is the developer of the Condominium.

NOTE 11 - COMMITMENTS
The Association has a one-year management agreement ending January 1, 2016, with HGVM. HGVM provides on-site management and maintenance services and off-site administrative and accounting services. The contract automatically renews for successive one-year periods unless HGVM or the Association, by a vote of a majority of the owners, determines not to renew the agreement and gives appropriate notice of that determination.

Although no written agreement has been signed, AOAO allows the Association to conduct certain operations in the designated common elements of AOAO. The Association pays a monthly fee of $7,200. For the year ended December 31, 2015, fees amounted to $86,400 and are included in operations expenses.

Although no written agreement has been signed, the Board approved a 60/40 split in rental revenue with the Developer, with 60% of the rental proceeds going to the Developer and 40% to the Association. For the year ended December 31, 2015, rental revenue amounted to $53,135 and is included in other revenue.
2002 Bay Club goes under Hilton management

http://www.bizjournals.com/pacific/stories/2002/11/11/daily78.html
http://archives.starbulletin.com/2002/11/16/business/index2.html

The owners of the Bay Club time-share resort at Waikoloa on the Big Island have transferred the sales and marketing of the property to Hilton Grand Vacations Club for an undisclosed price.

The Hilton time-share operation also will assume management of the property when the transfer goes into effect Jan.1.

Richard Lachmann, attorney for the Bay Club Ownership Resort Inc., said yesterday the deal involves the existing 172 units at the resort and does not include the 90-unit Phase II, which broke ground Aug. 6.

Nikken Corp., a Hawaii corporation owned in Japan, joined with Lahaina-headquartered Grand Ownership Resortsin 1994 to convert the Waikoloa resort to time-share.

Sales at the 15.5-acre Bay Club have gone well, to the point of a near sellout, but conditions in Japan led Nikken to seek someone else to take it over, Nikken said in a statement issued in Honolulu.

The Bay Club has been an affiliate of Hilton Grand Vacations since 1999, but the agreement expands Hilton's involvement, the statement said.

The liability for the 2016 unpaid HGVC memberships has been accrued on the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balance as of December 31, 2015. As of December 31, 2015, the Association owed HGVC $951,062 under this agreement and is reported under
due to related parties on the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balance.
Other: In addition, the Association shall compensate GPRS and Advanced Financial Corporation (AFC), an affiliate of the developer, for other services provided, including but not limited to assessments billing and collection, accounting and computer services, file and reservation system maintenance, owner relations service, and Board and members meetings coordination. The Association also reimburses GPRS for any out-of-pocket expenses paid. At December 31, 2015, the Association owed GPRS and AFC and other related parties $611,305 for services provided, including $140,840 of fees billed to interval owners included in assessments and other receivables, which will be collected by the Association on behalf of AFC. At December 31, 2015, the Association incurred $237,595 in expense for these services, which has been allocated to administration and sales, fixed expenses and owner relations and guest services under the operating fund on the statement of revenues, expenses and changes in fund balance (deficit).

(the Developer), a California limited partnership, to share common operating expenses related to the common facilities, private road and parking lot shared with the nearby hotel owned by the Developer. These expenses shall be shared between the Association and the Developer based on the burden each places on the property, as measured by such factors as the number of rooms, occupancy rates and occupants per unit. Currently, allocation percentages for the Association and the Developer are 44 percent and 56 percent, respectively. In addition, as consideration for allowing the Association to use roadways, parking facilities and other common facilities, the Association pays the Developer, in advance, an annual facilities fee, subject to annual consumer price index increases, based on the number of intervals. For both 2015 and 2016, the fee per interval was $22. The Association incurred expenses of $138,809 for the year ended December 31, 2015, which is allocated to fixed expenses under the operating fund. For the year ended December 31, 2016, the Association paid the Developer $156,373, which has been recorded as prepaid expenses on the statement of assets, liabilities and fund balance at December 31, 2015.

Plantation Beach Club Flexible Use Program - https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByZ8pXNPwzFmREJDZUxPUDJvdDg

What is Plantation Beach Club Flexible Use Program?
The Flexible Use Program is an ownership program designed to give an owner more flexibility when planning their vacation.

What Are The Benefits Of Flexible Use?

  • You own part of a “pool” rather than a specific week so you are not locked into a particular week or unit year after year.
  • You may alter the time of your annual vacation to fit your family’s busy schedule.
  • You have the flexibility to vacation during special family occasions.
What Do I Own?
  • You own a deeded week at Plantation Beach Club @IRP. It can be rented, exchanged, bequeathed, resold, or better yet, used at a time that best fits your schedule.
How Do I Use My Flexible Week?
  • You must submit a written Flexible Reservation Request form to Plantation Beach Club @IRP each year because THE WEEK NUMBER ON YOUR DEED IS NOT YOUR CONFIRMED FLEXIBLE WEEK.
  • Mail, e-mail or Fax your completed Flexible Reservation Request form to Plantation Beach Club @IRP. Your request will be confirmed no earlier than 365 days prior to your choice and no later than 10 days prior to the week of your choice.
  • There are three flex seasons.
    • Flex A is deeded weeks 1 to 4 and may flex into weeks 1 thru 4 only.
    • Flex B is deeded weeks 16 to 34 and may flex into weeks 16 thru 34 only.
    • Flex C is deeded weeks 35 to 50 and may flex into weeks 35 thru 50 only.
  • Try to reserve your week early. Most owners make reservations at least one year in advance.
  • In the event that more requests are made for a given unit type and week than there are available, the criteria for determining the relative priorities are the following:
    1. Number of weeks owned (to facilitate reservation of contiguous weeks for multi-week purchasers).
    2. Availability of secondary preference.
  • After the above criteria is met all others will be put into a lottery and names “drawn from the hat”.
How Do I Rent My Flexible Week?
  • Complete the first steps of How Do I Use My Flexible Week? This is necessary since you cannot rent your deeded week. After your reservation is confirmed, you will receive a copy of your confirmed reservation.
  • Fill out the Hilton Grand Vacations Exclusive Timeshare Rental Contract.
  • Mail, e-mail or Fax the completed Rental Contract and a copy of your confirmed reservation to the fax number or address at the top of the Exclusive Timeshare Rental Contract.
How Do I Exchange My Flexible Week?
  • Complete the first steps of How Do I Use My Flexible Week?
  • After you have your confirmation with your reservation number you may call your exchange company and give them the unit and week that you have reserved. Do Not Give Them Your Deeded Unit or Week. The exchange company will contact us to verify the information. We will deny the banking if they have incorrect information, so please ensure you give them the correct information.
What Are The Rules of Flextime Ownership?
  • You will be confirmed into the week of your choice on a first-come, first served, space available basis.
  • In the event that more requests are made for a given unit type and week than there are available, the criteria for determining the relative priorities are the following:
    1. Number of weeks owned (to facilitate reservation of contiguous weeks for multi-week purchasers).
    2. Availability of secondary preference.
    3. After the above criteria is met all others will be put into a lottery and names “drawn from the hat”.
  • Because of normal high demand for holiday time, your request for this time period will be subject to a simple rotation procedure that allows a fair opportunity for all members to reserve a holiday vacation.
  • There is a $25 fee to change a confirmed reservation.
  • There is no carry-over or accrual of unused time to subsequent years. Owners not making timely reservations may lose use of their Flex time for that year.
  • If the owner is not able to make satisfactory reservations, they are not relieved of their obligation to pay all assessments and taxes associated with the ownership of the week.

Resort Map and Floor Plans

2) Even though there are 2 types of 1 BR floor plans, they have only loaded a code for the smaller 1 BR 1 Bath C floorplan, this represents only 1/3 of the 1 BR available at the resort. The remaining 1 BRs are D floor plans and they are all 1 BR 1.5 Baths. So by putting the lowest level floorplan into the system, you are guarantee at least that, but have a good chance of getting a D floorplan instead.
I am fairly certain that the D floor plan units are actually SMALLER than the C units, not what you have above.

You are correct. That is what I get for doing too many of those descriptions on the same day. Perhaps GT75 can correct that in the original posting, as it is long past my ability to edit that data.

D is slightly smaller interior, but a slightly larger lanai. C is larger interior, but slightly smaller lanai. I guess they felt that there was not a big enough difference to code them in as separate inventory types as they did NOT code a D unit. As I said 2/3 are C and only 1/3 are Ds. Perhaps they leave most of them for RCI exchangers?
