Villas at Giants Ridge

I am looking to book a week at the Villas at Giants Ridge in September so we can do some golfing in the area, but I am coming up empty on my searches. I have had an RCI advisor do a search and she was not able to find any availableility for the next 6 months. Can anyone provide me into any insights why that should be the case? Is there very few units that are in the exchange pool? Or???? I just have a hard time believing that there would be no availability in Set or Oct.

Thanks for any advice you can provide.

Beautiful Arizona!
Over the years (since 1989), I have attempted to exchange into both this destination and Caribou Highlands Lodge at Lutsen. Have never found a week available.

Anecdotally, I know there are very few units that even exist at either of these locations, and the great majority of owners either use their weeks on-site or make a killing renting them out rather than banking and exchanging.

I am an owner of a 3-bedroom condo at the Villas at Giants Ridge. They are indeed nice units in a wonderful area. We own a fractional share, that is 3 weeks of one condo. We had to buy there since I have never seen any of these weeks through RCI either. They are great to use in the summer since they are on the lake and feature a couple of great golf courses. And of course, the skiing in the winter provides a great vacation in the winter. I have let some friends use a couple of our weeks that we couldn't, and they had a great time too.
