Eagle's Nest is an affiliate in HGVC system not Hyatt.

I looked and both are in HGVC's gold season, but you would be required to convert to points as they are still fixed weeks.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Eagle's Nest a Hilton affiliated resort? Also, it appears to be fixed weeks; therefore, the owners might have to pay to convert to points. DawnB

Sorry, I keep getting Hilton and Hyatt mixed up but the question still remains. I didn't know you had to convert to points. I thought they were valued as points already or is it Hilton's (i.e. Hilton vacationing at an affiliate) that are valued as points but if you are going the other way (Affiliate vacationing at a Hilton) you have a fixed week?

Can you convert Eagle weeks to Hilton points?

You can join HGVC very easily if you own a fixed week at Eagle's Nest. The usual fee is $399 to join, but they sometimes have a special offer where they will let you join for $199.

That's insane! That's 10,000 HGVC points, currently going for $10. If I weren't in the middle of closing on a 7000 point purchase, I'd be all over this. Hmmm, maybe I will anyway.

It would be interesting to check if it is truly a fixed week, or a non-winter float. Even float weeks have a specific underlying deeded week. But you have no right to the listed week on your deed if it is in the "float" pool. I could check my Eagles nest title package but not sure where it is. It's been many many years.....

Couldn't resist. According to my old title package it looks like these are in the non-winter flex pool. Actually, I think that's better than the underlying deeded weeks here because it open up all of weeks 1-4 and 17-51 to request. I generally gotten whatever week I've wanted, either to visit or to get a 5000 point week for HIlton.

It's a very good deal for someone.

Winning bid was $6009. Somebody got a heckuva deal. If I hadn't just bought 7000 points, I would have bid higher than that.

I'm thinking anything under $10K is a good deal. You got an awesome deal. Congratulations!

I was the other bidder you outbid---good catch, I already have (3) Marco flex weeks. These two fixed weeks can be converted to 10,000 points--good job

I had bid on it but since I already have 7000 pts and cant use much more, I didn't bid much on it

Congrats

I have an Eagle's Nest non-winter flex and an Eagle's Nest fixed week. They have been great for points as well as excellent trading power in II and SFX.

If they are in the flex pool, and you're going for HGVC points, don't forget that you can request week 51, if you get it (usually a lottery) it's worth 7000 points.

Have fun

I own in Eagle's Nest. Even though the deed provides a fixed date (week 27) and unit, it is a floating week. I bought it through Seth Nock and convert the week to 5,000 points (gold season). I should mention that it can take MONTHS for the conversion to come through, because you can only reserve up to one year in advance and have to wait for the gold weeks to become available for booking. This year, I submitted a request in January, but did not get the 2009 week (which was immediately converted into HGVC points) until the beginning of August! :annoyed:

I already own at the Flamingo, so I didn't have to pay the $399 fee to add Eagle's Nest to my HGVC membership.
