My DD has decided she needs to go to St. John, VI. When would be the easiest time to get an exchange there? From what I remember, it is a difficult trade to get.

It's extraordinarily difficult. Probably mid September - mid December (and most likely November-mid December) would be best chances.

There has been some availability at the Sunset Ridge Villas (RCI)as of late, so you can go there and enjoy it all without the ambience of the WSJ.

I traded into the Westin St. John at the end of this last May and it took me many years to see any availability. It was a last minute deposit.

When I got to the WSJ (II) and took the t/s tour, the salesman was incredulous. The other salesperson said that when someone trades in, a bell should go off and trumpets should sound.
It's that difficult (I was told and I believe them).

It's a great island anywhere you stay.

DH/DD?

Please forgive my ignorance, what do DD & DH stand for? I keep seeing it for the better half (at least, in my case) -- please advise and thanks!
