Verifying a vistana reservation purchased on ebay (Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas)

Hi All,

I recently purchased a timeshare on ebay for a 1 week rental @ Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas(Vistana Property).
Payment was fully submitted via ebay and the seller was prompt in his response. He asked for my name and later said that he has changed the reservation to my name.
From his seller feedback he seems to have sold timeshare rental weeks before and he has 100% positive feedback.
I feel pretty safe with the transaction. However, if possible I would still like to confirm the reservation somewhere. Does any current vistana owner have any experience with this?
If the reservation is under my name could I call in somewhere to double check? I'm also a Marriott bonvoy member, would it be possible to link the reservation to the Marriott dashboard?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and my apologies if this topic was previously covered and I missed it.

Call the resort and they should be able to see the reservation in the system. You an then have them add your bonvoy number. You can also contact the ebay seller and ask them for a copy of the vistana confirmation.

That was so simple, yet it never occurred to me to do so. I just called the property, they confirmed that they see the reservation in the system under my name. I asked to update my bonvoy # and now I can see reservation within my Marriott dashboard. Thanks a million CPNY!
