Well put, just be ready for the occasional unpleasant surprise with VRBO and AirBNB if you have mobility issues...
I think another thing about timeshares is the resort atmosphere. We have rented individual homes and condos- all very nice. But the one thing missing was the resort amenities- like the social ones- guided tours, social gatherings, other guests you might see every year at your home resort. Heated pools and hot tubs and saunas. (I know- some homes have them). People you can go out to dinner with or go out for a drink or just chat with by the pool or wherever.
My husband and I already live in a nice house in the woods in a rural area. When we go away, we like to see other people and like the social interaction and activities and so forth. It is way too quiet and lonely-kind of- just the two of us renting a house, though we generally keep busy doing things and sightseeing.
I prefer being at a resort for the most part, but if not possible, we rent a home or condo.
