One night stay???? Check-in at 4:00pm and out by 10:00am. Unpack and pack your luggage, sleep and that isn't much of a visit. It's probably a 1 BR unit on the low floor band with a mountain view

I didn't catch how many points that costs. But in general I love these orphans -- it allows me to pad a full week with an extra day on either end. The front desk has an impressive history of letting me keep my room, as well.

In this case though, they'll probably end up eating this day, or renting it out.

580 points (one night) in a 2200 point week.

Someone booking six of their seven days making their almost week in a two bed Maui unit only 1620 points... that seems smart on their part.

It might be limiting spending points, but isn't the key goal to have a nice vacation? Not staying for a Saturday night calls for a premature end to the vacation. When you spend BIG bucks to buy into Portfolio, one would then there is a benefit to enhance vacation time rather than bean counting.

It depends on individual circumstances and travel arrangements. Leaving on Sunday may require getting back home very late Sunday night which causes problems with school/work next morning. Leaving on Saturday then may allow some time on Sunday to get some rest from travel and then be in better shape on Monday morning.

That's absolutely smart. I routinely book Carmel for four inexpensive days rather than seven for nearly double (I'd have to look it up). Then I mosey to Santa Cruz/Half Moon/etc. and spend time in a hotel before starting the the next leg through Interval. That works great. I also like to grab a day or two on the other end -- if the point cost per day makes sense.

HKB is a special case. If I planned a Maui vacation, I could get a week through Interval and then pad that week with some HKB luxury -- for a mid-week stay, at least.
