Unit 208 (week 24) also just happens to be selling on eBay at the starting price of $1.
Wow, thats good news, do you by chance know what this unit is like as my friend is trying to figure out if this unit will be noisy...

Any idea on a fair market price for a week 9 (Mardi Gras) for a 2-bedroom?

Which unit number? Not all 2BRs are equal at the QH. Some are only 500+ sq ft with one bathroom shower only while on the other side of the spectrum some are 1,600 sq ft with jacuzzi tubs and some have 3 bathrooms. The 2BR lock-off is going to be the most valuable even over the penthouse.

If I had to guess on an auction market price from a decent reputation seller I would say $6k for the smaller 2BR and $9k for the lock-off but I might be off. It only takes two bidders that are after owner usage for the price to skyrocket.

One sold on ebay as a buy it now back in 2014 for $3,598 all in. It was a 2BR lock-off and an absolute steal in my opinion. I wish I had seen that one.

Mostly just curious. I see unit 421 sold for over $15,000 on a non-auction site.

That is highly doubtful. Those listings sites will mark the items sold but leave the original price. You can't actually know what the unit sold at. They rarely if ever sell at the list prices but it is a great week and sought after so what likely happened is multiple offers were made but it sold for less than half the list price.

Unit 421 is decent size but not a lock-off. Still a fantastic mardi gras unit for sure.

It was on sellatimeshare.com - says it sold for $15,205.

I don't know anything about the site or how reputable they are.

All of the units are nice. Unit 208 is one of the few units with a balcony so that's a big plus. It is going to be a small 1BR unit.

The only unit at the Quarter House with a balcony is 232.

No, that is not correct. Perhaps that is the only one you knew of because you own and stay in that unit. There are a small number of other units that share balconies facing Iberville. These are on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the older section. I believe these units are 207, 208, 307, 308, and possibly two more. They are small 1BR units.

232 is definitely the balcony unit to own though. Chartres is a better street to view than Iberville and it seems a little weird to share a balcony with other units.

Let me know when you want to sell that unit. ;)

I know this is an older post, but thanks for the info. We own 2 weeks at the Quarter House - a 1BR deluxe and a penthouse. The penthouse, #516 is the only unit in the resort with a full kitchen (includes an oven). I haven't seen 2 units that are exactly the same. That's one of the many things that make it delightfully unique.
I just contracted to purchase unit 516 week 27. I am not excited about a mid-summer week but I couldn't pass up a penthouse unit. Did you ever have a chance to stay in this unit?

Thanks

1,574. 16 sq ft less than one of my lock-offs but it should be much larger functionally. My large lock-off unit has quite a bit of sq ft taken up by long hallway space.

There are a total of 6 "penthouses" and most of them have 3 bathrooms. I don't know the square footage ranges but my guess is that they all hover around 1,500-1,600. All are on the fifth floor except 319 which is on the 3rd.

The lock-offs have more flexibility because they are all dual full 1BR units, but if I was owner using with my immediate family I would prefer a penthouse over the dual 1BR's.

FYI - Unit 232, a lockoff is not classified as a Penthouse unit but it is over 1,500 square feet and has three (3) full bathrooms also.

Thanks. I did have that down for 232. 432 also has 3 bathrooms and I assume 332 does as well but I don't have that one confirmed. In several areas of the QH the unit floor plan is the same for the 2nd thru 4th floors.

I never did get back to this post to let everyone know my friend loved the QH but hated unit 208 as she felt is was too noisy, she said she got little to no sleep.

I don't have very much on 216. It was part of phase 5. The sq ft should be decent. The suite name is Chateau Chartres. Can you give me some additional details from your exchange certificate? Is there an oven or a washer/dryer?

Some single bathroom units are handicap accessible and only have a shower with no tub. Not sure if 216 is like that but I know 318 & 418 are like this and probably 218.
I own a 216 interval but haven't seen it yet. I'm told it's on the larger side (almost 1100 sq. feet) and yes, it has a washer/dryer. Don't know about noise level yet.

That makes sense since it has a balcony and faces Iberville. Some people would love the balcony and bedroom facing street but others would hate it. I like the larger rooms because some have windows in the living room but the bedroom is interior and quiet.

I have it down as 1 bathroom so let me know if that ends up being the case.

One of my favorites is 430AB. It has windows in both living rooms but they overlook the tops of connected buildings so those rooms are quiet even if you open the windows. The bedrooms are completely black and extremely quiet. The A side is also on a different level than the B side (5 stairs and around a corner) so it feels more like two separate units than some others.

With the thick brick walls between units you can't even hear someone screaming in the unit next door. The only chance of noise in the interior is it coming from the hall or possible under someones door, into the hall, and then under your own door.
