If you own VDP Flamingos Gold two bedroom can you split it and go two weeks in a one bedroom.
Are there additional maintenance fees to pay when you do this this kind of split?
It is my understanding that there is no additional maintenance fee for this split. For a Gold member this is available without additional charge, a Premier member pays $70 charge - worth double-checking though.
Hi BBBob. I've been reading and appreciate your posts for the past months. You bring allot of great insite to this world of timeshares, and especially for the Villa Group resorts.
I'd like to ask your opinion. I've read in detail the work of Jeff Robbins, and respect what he has done. But, we have enjoyed our VDP-Gold membership for the past 10 years and would like to add a Villa Del Arco 2BR Gold to our set.
Through RedWeek.com, there are a few ranging in the $2,500-$5,000 range. I can work with that. Can you confirm that a Villa Del Arco Gold will transfer just like that to me? They won't (can't) strip off the Gold, convert it to the points system, or the Premier, or any perform any other shenanigans can they?
Do you have any warnings to buying in the aftermarket as a resale?
I think I'll have a escrow fee ($400-500) and transfer fee ($250) to deal with. Anything else you know about.
Thanks so much. Steve

- A resale Premier membership transfers as a Premier membership
- A resale Gold membership transfers as a Gold membership BUT is marked as a resale unit and is therefore not eligible to be upgraded to a VPA membership
- A resale VPA membership loses all "points" capabilities and transfers as a Premier membership. See page 19 of the most recent UVC bylaws at http://www.myuvc.com/files/Amended ...es and Bylaws _19_ - with TOC - Final _2_.pdf
Our original purchase was for a Gold membership. We later paid to upgrade it to VPA. The added flexibility is important to us. We intend to use for several more years; but when the time comes to sell, are you saying that it would transfer to a new owner as Premier only?
Will I find this restriction in our original contracts for Gold and later for VPA, or is this something that changed later?
Bob, thanks for the great reply. I really appreciate you passing on all that info.
Also. It does not appear that a Premier membership is that much less effective than a Gold. I might keep an open mind to Premier if we can move around in the Villa Group.
Thanks again. Steve
