Getting close to our first timeshare purchase. Question when you book during the 9 month window can you pick the specific room you want? For example we would want to stay at Enclave or Ocean 22 but want to be sure to get Ocean front. Is that possible or you just get to the property and they assign you a room?

Then you need to book an OF room.

The reason for this question is because we bought a VIP package and they said rooms were assigned on check in and we were concerned that is how it worked when you became a HGVC owner and booked outside your home window.

when you book you choose room type. If you are buying (please buy resale) - verify the points you are buying match the room type you want and season you want

Are you sure that you will be in the TS or a hotel room nearby?

It is in the TS. The VIP package doesn't use the HGVC website so you dont get the true experience of what it is like to book a vacation. You have to call an account specialist. They assured me though it is in the TS just room assignment is at check in.

I did the same thing at Oceans 22 and you be prepared for a very high pressure sales pitch. I am a very stable genius :) and I still fell for it. The kind people here made me realize the mistake I made. I rescinded and found a free platinum ownership on ebay. Now I have more points and can book in the club season wherever there are rooms open. I don’t think Oceans 22 is sold out so you could probably book there this way.

I do not have a home week there and have successfully traded in for the week of July 4th both this year and next. That has to be about the hardest week to trade into. Such a trade is likely to get harder as it fills up, but I am enjoying it.
