Wyndham PCB is a great place to go in the winter if you are content to read on the balcony while wearing a hoodie instead of flip-flops. The view is the same, the sound of the ocean (Gulf) is the same.

I have the following reservations. Single week reservations are priced at $695; the two week reservation is $1,290.

Can you believe that all the Wyndham Panama City Beach listings on RedWeek.com are mine??

Is this a sign of a mega renter?

If four or five el cheapo off-season listings make one a mega-renter, then I suppose the answer is yes.

However, I'm small potatoes compared to some.

I've been thinking about your question. "Megarenter" is a term that is thrown around, usually pejoratively, but I've never seen anyone define a megarenter.

There have been people/organizations that managed 40, 50, or 100 million points. Clearly, they qualify or qualified, if they still exist. But, at what level of activity (number of rentals, revenue, or other metric) does the casual renter become a megarenter? I thought maybe you would know since you suggested I might be one.

Only a question not suggesting you are one. If one has all of the listings on redweek for a certain location it could be easily for some think you could possibly be a megarenter.

This post reminded me of one owner that had many rentals in New Orleans ;/

It might also be an indication that I don't have a clue -- stupidly trying to rent four or five Panhandle resort weeks in the dead of winter in spite of the fact that no one else is doing it.

But, you dodged the question. When does the casual renter become a megarenter?

Dominic -- are you a journalist? That "some think" sounds like journalist-speak for "I think."

Hi Jim, I don't know if you have weeks into April but there is an event going on April 16 -19 so there may be demand for that week.

The problem with April and later is that Wyndham PCB becomes quite expensive -- even with discounts and upgrades. Also, I have pretty well booked my weeks in March and April in Daytona and Bonnet Creek. Any more and Wyndham will become upset about overlapping reservations.

Yes, I know and I have some reservations there that I booked last spring. Can't list them on LMR -- too pricey.

The PCB reservations were made inside the 60-day discount/upgrade window. If there were something available in So. Florida inside the 60-day window, believe me I'd jump on it.

HAHA I will take a crack at the questions what is the definition of a mega renter.

1. If you rent more then 30 rentals a year
2. If you rent out more than 2 mil points worth of reservation based on regular non discounted point values.
3. If you rent out five times as many weeks/points as you use personally
4. If dgalati says you are mega renter-HAHA

I'm glad you said rent, instead of list. I've listed about eight of these PCB weeks and rented none. It's funny, though. I have a repeat customer who rented four consecutive weeks at PCB. That's what got me looking for reservations there. That and the fact that they are insanely cheap in the winter (as they are insanely expensive the rest of the year). One of those great ideas that didn't work out.

However, I'll try again next winter since there's not much else to do with points then.

Interesting! So, this is what I will have to do too if I were to acquire a lot of resale points. I think I will stick to my Airbnb listings for now and wait for bluebirds to drop into my lap or fly into my coop!:)

@dgalati's definition of mega looks micro to me. Megarenter would be playing in high demand rentals with ARP reservations, I would think!

Hello @chapjim, I have two reservations at PCB spanning 2/16-18, 2/18-22. Any tips on listing them here? I don't want to violate the rules but $115/day seems too low. Can I charge extra for GC and PP?
