Glad to have just one place to check now that my OP Forum is part of TUG. We have used TUG fo 18+ years and often suggest to friends that they join.

Welcome to the new TUGgers!

If you have any questions about TUG there are several links in the task bar on the top of every page to find help, learn the rules, and learn how to make the most of TUG. Feel free to ask anything - we're happy to help. :)

I do want to mention that the info you post to TUG can be scammed by bad actors who harvest bulletin board systems to target users for bad things (which in this forum usually means scam companies that take upfront fees and give false promises that they can get rid of your timeshare for you.) Harvesting doesn't happen here often and admin does what it can to prevent it, but you should know that it's not a requirement on TUG that you publish your names or other contact information in your posts. You're certainly welcome to do it but the warning is worth mentioning. :)

Thank you Sue. I copied and forwarded this to the Group.

Good Morning,
Have a unit up for rent but received an email from VacationCandy. Anyone here have any experience with them? Actually kinda turned it down but now wondering if I should contact them.
Thanks
The last time I bought new Marriott Vacation/Destination Points (Feb 2020) the Marriott agent indicated that he often uses VacationCandy for his own properties. I have not gone further than that, however. If you do check it out, please post your findings here!

February was early in US Covid history. Repercussions from cancelled rentals really hit the fan in March.

I did a quick search using just the words "vacation candy" and came up with a number of threads for more details.

tatmtr7, you can experiment with the "Search" feature in the top right of the page.

I asked Brian if we could have a thread to replace the Yahoo group "Marriott's Ocean Pointe Owners" https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OPnewsgroup/info which will be shut down on 12/15. He said there was no problem with this.

The Yahoo group for OP owners has been a terrific opportunity to develop a sense of "community" amongst the owners. Here's hoping that community continues and grows from this thread. Therefore, this is the beginning of a new chapter for Owners and visitors to Ocean Pointe. As the Marriott forum here on TUG encompasses a wide range of topics, this particular thread may simply incorporate popular topics on the OPnewsgroup, i.e., hurricane/storm warnings and damage, COA issues, social gatherings, personnel changes, loans/exchange of beach chairs, etc.

TUG has so much more to offer the Owners at OP than we could provide on the Yahoo website. To copy off a MI grocer's motto, it's "one stop shopping".

So please welcome and take advantage of this new thread.
Thank you for this Suzanne. I have registered and look forward to continuing with our newsgroup. Holly Seelig

Thanks for setting this up. Hoping to see our beloved OP soon. I am trying to rent my units on Red Week but no luck so far. Our arrival is uncertain because of COVID. The Canadian border is still closed.

You can still fly. Only the land border is closed. However, the 14 day quarantine is probably problematic upon return.

Happy that Suzzanne got this group started. I hope it is as effective as the Yahoo group has been.
