just an update

Thanks for the advice, so I stopped pursuing the first rental which was lowly priced but asked for a cleaning deposit and the phone # he gave was a non-answering Magic Jack #.
Ended up finding a reasonable week at Redweek, and like you all suggested called and talked to the person and now have our reservation confirmed! We actually both took a step at this 'trust' thing by me mailing over a check as a deposit for him to get a reservation # with my name. So skipped the Paypal or escrow fees.

Marriott said I could add my Marriott Rewards # at time of check-in, is that correct?

sjnoble: Good for you! So, where are you going? When?

The Owner will simply add your name to the reservation. Ask him to send you the Confirmatin Number.

When you check-in, give the front desk your Marriott Rewards Number and make sure they add it to your Reservation. Otherwise, the Owner, whose MRN is on file, will get Marriott rewards for anything that you spend. When you check-in, they will ask for Photo Id and your credit card for anything that you buy. Our resort is "cashless".

Remember that you may also be able to get Marriott Rewards Points for Marriott restaurants in the area. At some Marriott restaurants located in close proximity to your timeshare resort, you can even charge your meals to your Room Number. I like that feature & did that last time we were at Ocean Pointe & had dinner at The Marriott Singer Island resort & Spa located down the road from Ocean Pointe.

So happy it has all worked out for you. Thanks for posting to update us.

Thanks Smooth Air, we're going to Frenchman's Cove for Memorial Day week! My husband can't wait to get some Udder Delight.
