I've seen several posts from people headed to Grande Ocean the week after Christmas. I assume others are headed to Surfwatch, Barony and other Marriott HHI resorts. Since I just recently closed on my first TS (MGO) -- and not recognized by Marriott yet -- I wanted to ask:

Is buying a getaway from II a common thing for this week? If so, what is the approximate cost for the getaway week? Or maybe this is a popular week to use ACs from past deposits to II?

Or maybe this is just a popular week for Silver owners :shrug: ???

Thanks for all your help in 2008, and Happy New year to all you TUGgers!

I am looking forward to my first week at MGO this coming summer...

Personally I would use an AC or do a getaway. It's a week I like to travel myself as a mini break. Since the MF hovers around $900 /$1000 to use the week I would choose the getaway for just $399.

I would trade if it was a resort one cannot find normally as a getaway like the the Carribean ,Marco or Sanibel Island. Or I would trade to a higher season because of the $$$ MF.

I do not know if silver week owners qualify for an AC. Christmas week is popular but can easily be seen as a trade at some resorts and not others.



Congratulations on your new purchase. MGO is a great resort/location. We adore HHI. Happy Holidays to you and welcome aboard!

other to comment, please?

Thanks for the info, pcgirl.

So from your information, getaways for this week or two are $399 at MGO.
Do others know getaway prices for Barony and Surfwatch during Christmas week -- and the week afterwards? Thanks
