Looking to trade into MSK anytime in Jan-Feb 2013. I can use either a 1 BR Aruba Ocean Club ocean view (2012 week 7) that is already on deposit with II OR a 2 BR Aruba Surf Club ocean view 2013 week 6. Nothing comes up now when I do a search on II. Wondering what everyone thinks my chances for success are using either of the 2 possible trades.

Thanks

I got a 2 bedroom unit at St. Kitts in early March 2011 using a platinum 2 bedroom unit at Canyon Villas (can't remember the specific unit). So, I think your chances are pretty good. However, my trade didn't come through until Jan. 1, 2011 (slightly more than 60 days in advance), after a long wait.

I think you'll get the trade, but you'll probably have to be patient. Good luck. We really liked St. Kitts!

We are off to MSK in late April for 2 weeks. The exchanges were secured at 12 months out on requests based on a Feb week at MPU and a Nov week at MKB. All were 2 bed for 2 bed exchanges.

We are really looking forward to our trip to MSK.

i think we are more shoulder season for MSK whereas Jan Feb is probably more peak season.

If it were me I'd have my request in by now since it is less than 12 months out.

We are owners at SKB and when we stay there we always also exchange our weeks at other resorts for extended stays.
We have never yet had a problem with this, although we have only done so in March/April/May/June/October/November/December.
As MALC9990 says, January/February is peak season so more difficult to get hold of so apply asap.
Good luck.

While planning our Caribbean trip for late May, I checked St. Kitts availability on Marriott's website, and saw the 2-br villa available for $200+ /nt and < $200 after June 1! If we had decided to go to St. Kitts I would have just booked through Marriott and get the MRP! But we decided to to to St Thomas instead

Were these prices with or without owners' discounts (which may be the reason for the price discrepancy)?

Your price differences from MALC9990's is due to rack rates versus owner discount rates. The 35% owner discount, or 40% for Premiere DC owners, (or 45% for Premiere Plus) with use of the Marriott Visa is pretty substantial.

I am not a DC member though, only logged in as MR Gold

Which resort is MKB?

MKB is Mai Khai Beach Club in Phuket. The resort is part of the MVCI Asia Pacific Club points system. Only available in II if a member uses points to reserve a week and then deposits with II. Also on offer as II getaways.
