Westin Mission Hills question

This weekend we travel to Westin Mission Hills for 2 weeks with an exchange from our Marriott in Spain. For the first week we have 2 reservations, both the larger premium side of a villa as well as the smaller deluxe side. Westin reception have agreed to put them together to make a full 2 bed villa, which means we can have friends come and stay with us.

We are now thinking we'd like the larger villa for the second week too and as there's nothing available on Interval I've called Starwood and although they do have availability it's expensive. I emailed a couple of rental ad's from owners on the web but no replies yet ...... do any of you Starwood owners have a suggestion for a cheaper way to either rent from Starwood or find a private rental or exchange?

This is my first trip to Palm Springs and after the non existent English summer I'm in need of a burst of heat!
