First of all, thanks to the great community of experts here for all your great info.
We have been looking for our first resale timeshare, and 3 days ago we pulled the trigger. A EOY platinum week at Ko Olina off eBay for $7775. :)
Today we received word that ROFR has been been waived. 2 days after submission. :cheer:
Looks like dioxide's site is down, otherwise I would have also put it there. Now it remains to be seen how quickly Marriott will recognize the ownership transfer.
So far so good.

Truely an unbelieveable deal!! Congrats

I'd expect at least 2-3 months of waiting for Marriott to recognize the ownership transfer.

Wow, congrats! Your due diligence here on TUG has really paid off. Wonderful!

After dioxides site is up and running I do hope you will enter it in the database.

Cheers,
Janna

See. Should have bid $5000. The next sale will set THAT "record" for a few days. The prices are only going down. Buying now can be a deal compared to a year ago, but may look way too high in another month or two.

I'm happy they got what they feel is a deal and as long as it's for their use and not a chance at profit (which sure isn't likely anymore) they should be very happy owners of a great resort. Enjoy.

The record I was actually asking about was:
2 days from purchase to ROFR waived.

Never expected price to compete.

It's called Mountain view. 2 Bedroom, 2 bath. Sleeps 8. Majority of units are this way.

Ko 'Olina on Ebay - what is the "Penthouse?"

Never heard the "Penthouse" mentioned before....The Penthouse Suite guarantees you the top 3 floors and they have vaulted ceilings. The floor plan is the same but these units look much bigger and nicer.

EOY, even starting in 2010. Currently at $3,701 (get 15% back with eBay Credit Card).

I'll have to watch this one!
