Joe, as a deeded week owner, what advantages do you receive over PaP home resort points owner?

I have never used this for RCI-Interval-Or any Points Deal. Just simply call and go for my week. I have done "Bonus"($250Ish a Night) time to stay Extra Nights on top of my week. If you want this to trade/Convert to something else. You should find another timeshare. You pay $1,800 and go stay in Paradise for a week.(And Possibly use Bonus Time to extend.)

Hi Joe, i think you misunderstood my question so I'll restate. I'm a points owner at Point at Poipu. I'm booked there next week in a 2BR which cost 5000 points, equivalent to $1000 of MF. Why is your week's ownership MF so expensive? Do week's owners get anything that points owners don't get?

Very Simply. Pay the Maintenance Fee of $1,800-- Pick a week. I have been to a few Owner's Updates over the years-- They always try to get me to convert to points. I just pay the maintenance and go -- or send a Friend.

Thanks. I'll take that as a no and stick to my cheaper points ownership at Point at Poipu.

You are presumably a points owner in the Hawaii Collection (there is no such thing as a points owner at Poipu - only Hawaii Collection). If you are there in a 2-bedroom for 5000 points, then that must be a reservation made within 60 days of check-in - most likely for a partial ocean view. That room would typically be 10,000 points outside the 60-day window. Which makes the normal cost for that unit $2000 in equivalent MFs.

The reduced point values 60 days before check-in (space available) is a benefit of being a points owner in the Club. However, note that outside that window you would pay $2000 in maintenance fees for that 10,000 point reservation, whereas the deeded week owner pays $1800. That $200 is what it costs you to be in points instead of deed. There are not insignificant trustee fees that you incur in the trust. And if you are also in the Club you pay the annual club fees as well. S0 points gets you more flexibility, but that flexibility comes at a cost.

If you just want to stay at Point at Poipu for one week, and you desire to visit during peak demand season, as cheaply as you can, a deeded in the desired view category is overall the cheapest option. You're points option is cheaper as long as you travel availability lines up with times when there is inventory available inside the 60-day window.

Yes i already knew all that lol.

Cheaper to be a points owner with access to sales and upgrades. I've never had a problem getting high season.

All Good. If You or someone else just simply want a week in 2020 in a 2 bedroom at the Point At Poipu. You can just pay the Maintenance fee for 2020 and go. I can just kick the can down the road again for 2021 usage and purchase. But as stated earlier-- If someone just wants an Interval/RCI Trader-- This is not the timeshare for you. Go find one(Timeshare) with Cheaper Maintenance. Enjoy your vacation in Kauai.
