Vistana finally transferred an after market Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas North 2bd lockout time share to my name. I had the previous owner secure my 2020 date during the closing process to make sure i received the dates i wanted. Now i have a few questions to make sure i use this time share to its fullest! Hoping for some help/guidance on a few items:

1) How do i modify an existing reservation? If i want to break up my 2 bedroom to rent out the studio or if i want to change my entire 2 bedroom to just a 1 bedroom rental so i can bank some of the points. How do i do that?

2) Any other advice with working with Vistana? We have frequented Maui for a long time and always tried to take advantage of time share specials and/or redweek purchases so looking forward to not constantly looking for the best deal to go on vacation!

Thanks

1) Just call Owner Services. I have previously split a two bedroom reservation into separate reservations and have previously split a two bedroom and banked the points from the studio -- exactly what you propose to do. But one wrinkle: be sure the reservationist keeps the original confirmation number attached to the one bedroom that you propose to use. Room assignments are based on timestamp and you don't want to lose the room assignment priority.

2) Hang around here. Read the stickies. Make future reservations 365 days in advance. Have fun.
