There are some resorts in II which are hard to get, even for owners of "high" demand weeks at MCVI resorts in Hawaii.

I want to get a list of those resorts, and strategies as to how one can get those resorts.

I can start with one resort: Harborside at Atlantis.

Is there a particular area/season that you are looking to exchange into?

There are certain non-Marriott properties which are practically impossible to get at certain times of the year because some of the other developers (such as Starwood) do not let an owner book a specific week and then deposit what they have booked; rather, they choose the deposited week(s). Generally Harborside weeks deposited into II are more off season weeks and, although there have been several winter week deposits, summer weeks, for example, are rarely seen.

I'm thinking in the next few years it might be easy to get into these hard to get into units in Hawaii. I just got a trade 12 months out for Thanksgiving at Ko'Olina in a 2 bedroom. I exchanged a 2 bedroom Shadow Ridge week. I can't wait.

I agree about getting into Hawaii. Nice Trade!

Harborside Summer weeks rarely make it past internal trades.The best way I can see to get these difficult trades is a 1.Direct owner exchange 2. Have the request in with II well in advance 3. Be ready for a last minute exchange. I just saw a great last minute St kitts Marriott .I was ready to pull the trigger but the airfare killed it.:shrug:
