Some of you may remember my all out search to uptrade from a mountain studio to 2 BR ocean view at Ko Olina last year on a specific check in date. I finally succeeded and my party had a great time on the 8th floor of Moana tower.

Now, my units co-owner finally decided to use the asset he purchased. He and his wife decided Maui would be a good place to go. It is just him and he is using the 1BR portion of a Ko Olina. I told him request first would be the best method at this point. But, in the back of my mind I was thinking Maui?? Might be hard. So he booked his Ko Olina for 2012 just this last week. I put in a request first for a 1BR only at Maui (no studio) from September to mid November this year. Three days later he scored a 1 BR ocean view in the original building.

Would this indicate that weeks are alive and well? Even though the original building I think Maui is still a good score.

Also for next year about 10 months in advance I was able to confirm a 1 bedroom at Summit Watch for next January using my Silver week. It even includes the first few days of Sundance. This is the first time I have been able to get a 1 bedroom in winter booked more than a month or so in advance, using my silver week.

I always lock out my 2 bedroom and my last 3 excahnges have been:
Studio for 2 bedroom Waiohai last August - Flexchange 1 Bedroom for 1 Bedroom Summit Watch early January - booked about 2 months in advance
Studio for 2 Bedroom Summit Watch last week in March- Flexchange
