Hi,

Looking to plan a summer vacation for next summer. I know the exchanges will be tough. Would like to book a couple weeks in Pacific Northwest near the coast. I know I can't be too choosy. I have about 80 tpu's so it seems that should be enough to book two prime summer weeks. the Otter Rock timeshare has always looked so beautiful on the cliff. How likely are summer trips in that area?

I would also check out Worldmark Long Beach. It is only a few minute walk to the Beach. There is a long Boarded Walk. It is fun to explore the Long Beach Penisula. It is a Cranberry growing area and there is a Cranberry Museum. It is legal to drive on the Beach. Until they built the narrow gauge Railroad the only way to travel was on the Beach or by Boat. Short drive to Astoria Oregon.

There is also Worldmark Depoe Bay, Gleneden, and Seaside. These can be hard to Book.

Worldmark summer weeks are rarely, if ever, deposited. The more likely options are the independent owned ones like Rockaway Beach, Embarcadero, Schooner's Landing or Otter Rock. All are older resorts but it's the location.

Some years back we stayed at Kala Point in Fort Townsend, WA. I don't remember much about the resort or the units. It was a nice spot for us. From there we went up to Victoria, BC.

I doubt that any July or August beach front timeshare weeks in Washington or Oregon would be available for exchange. It would be rare. Maybe an owner exchange request at TUG or a rental would be easier.

For instance, I like warm areas in the winter and could trade Worldmark and Vacation Internationale units. This is just an example and not a solicitation.

I love the location of Otter Rock Timeshares. I have not seen a summer week available on line for years. I only have II now, don’t know if that is true for RCI.

Not *that* many years ago, we did manage to get 2 back-to-back August weeks online thru RCI: Otter Rock and another direct oceanfront, Sandpiper -- loved both.

Two things though: one is, I often found stuff like this more than a year out, closer to 2 years, plus RCI wasn't in quite the rental business they are now. The other is that is was pretty foggy in August, so we had to revisit various spots along the coast to catch good visibility. Many folks there mentioned that September is much better in that regard, still beautiful and not as hot inland which somehow intensifies the coastal fog, and could be a tad easier to trade, if you can be flexible.

I’m under the impression that Otter Tock involves a lot of stairs. Is that correct? Location is great.

yep. Built into a hillside, so how many stairs depends on the unit. Plus a lot of stairs down to the beach and tide pools.

We stayed at both Otter Rocks and Rockaway Beach a couple of years ago. We really liked both. Neither one was my choice and in fact I kept rejecting one of them. Both a very different experience and area. Would go back to either one, unfortunately we live on East Coast and don't see getting back there soon. Both need a car. To get to beach at Otter Rocks there are lots of steps. Every unit has to go down steps. To get to lower level from upper levels, there is an elevator thing.
