Great info for those looking.

I would think that WSJ availability would increase over the next few yaers as WSJ-BV opens and is still not sold out.

Thanks

2BR Sep 13-20
3BR Aug 28-Sep 4
3BR Sep 4-11
3BR Sep 11-18
Thank you for posting the dates. I took the 3BDR Sep 4-11. Took 104,100 pts. They put in my request for a unit with a pool (the old units). I've stayed in the Virgin Grand pool units before and it was a great week.

They are not making reservations for Virgin Grand or Bay Vista just for St. John. It is then up St. John to sort out which one you are staying in. I find that as odd since owners buy in a specific section.

I've gone to USVI this week in the past couple of years and hurricanes don't bother me. So this year I'm going to St. John in Apr and in Sep.

Thanks again for the heads up.

These are SVN exchanges - so I do not think it matters what Owners own. It is strange that you cannot request one over the other since they are considered seperate resorts.

I would assume that these are WSJ available units in SVN (at 8-months) and usage/availability will be based on SOs used in the SVN exchange. Therefore, you could end up in a 2Bd/3Bd VG or BV unit and use the SOs associated with them.

Congratulations! Just to clarify, was this a Starpoints reservation or a Staroptions reservation?

My time stamps earlier than yours! :cheer:

Seriously, I have no idea what's better. The new or old. Have they refurbished the 3BR w/pool?

Thanks, but I was asking islandguy who posted, "points." ;)
It was 104,100 Star Options -- 2008 it was only 81,000 Star Options. It surprised me about the increase even tho I own there and I got a letter about the point increase.
