putting together 2013 Hawaii trip

I am looking for some advice regarding putting together a trip to Hawaii in 2013. I have an ongoing request through II, attempting to trade a March 2012 Canyon Villas 2B for Waiohai anytime in May 2013. For the second week of the trip, I am trying to decide whether to deposit my 2013 weeks to II or use DC points. I would much rather use II because I can lock-off and use my 1 bedroom to trade for MOC and still have a week to use elsewhere. If I use DC points, I would have to use the entire point value for my 2B ( =2950) and would probably only get 5 nights in an efficiency with an island view. That's a loss of nine nights vs II. Obviously using II is the better deal for me, but what do people think about the chances of getting the trade?

Thank you

Waiohi should be an easier trade than MOC. The good thing about Waiohi is that they only have two bedrooms. You might want to consider useing your 1-bed for the waiohi trade and then use the 2-bd for the MOC trade. I think getting both might be tough and would be easier with DC points. You could always rent more points for the upgrade, but that will cost more cash.

I would think that as long as you are trading a good MCV week you will be able to get a 1BR at MOC for May. If you get closer in with no match you could always increase the search to include studios at MOC.

I 2nd this. May is a slightly slower time (Sept-Nov prolly the slowest) for HI so I would try this.

I would think that both should be a fairly easy exchange. As long as you are trading like for like at MOC, you should be fine. May is off peak time, so exchanges are easier then.
