More is better... More time in Hawaii is more better (author's pun). Sometimes in life a small compromise can be significant. Sometimes this depends on your perspective. If a longer experience is more of a luxury than the place you stay, then maybe you should consider a studio timeshare for Hawaii.

In this video, I will show you how to do that. And I provide two examples... One with WorldMark and one with Westin because I don't want you to think there is some magic with one of the timeshare companies over another. Because I value experience over physical luxury, I would choose a Studio so I could stay longer.

I've been using this arbitrage with HGVC Kingsland for some time now, own platinum premier unit phase one, then stay in gold season phase two standard units. It allows me to extend a week ownership to almost three weeks. I check in on Monday and out on Friday to eliminate the costly weekends on each end of the stay. It's also easier to check in on a day other than the home week owners (Saturday) to avoid the delays.
