Thread: 2015 exchange plans completed

  1. #1

    2015 exchange plans completed

    I think I booked all my major exchange for 2015.

    I have a
    2 br booked through II for Easter break in Va Beach at Beach Quarters Resort
    3 br booked through RCI weeks for Kaatskill Mountain Resort in NY for a beer festival in April. (full week but only using 3 nights)
    2 br weekend booked through RCI points in OC, MD at Marlin Cove II in June for the first weekend of summer vaca. (3 night weekend)
    2 br booked through RCI points into RCI weeks inventory for July at High Dunes Resort in the Outer Banks
    and a 2 br booked through II in Western Maryland (always about 10 degrees cooler than home 2 hrs east) at Lakewood resort for August.

    No big name places but all nice resorts when and where I want to go. I know this might not always be the case but everything fell into place this year using the big 2 exchange companies. The Western MD and Beer festival were not available in 2014 but I am happy to be able to get them every 2 or 3 years anyway.

    Throw in some time at my owned resorts in Myrtle Beach, Ocean City, Hershey, and Massanutten if I can't get them rented and I will have a busy 2015.

    So far I've only got 5 weeks booked all for the summer at the beach.
    I'm hoping to book a few more.
    And one week in Vegas.
    Haven't decided on my Mouse fix just yet.
    That's as far as I've gotten.

    It happens- you get loaded with deposits and spend a lot of time away. I did 13 weeks one year and going home felt better. 5 so far this year and I may not be done yet. Really hurt the veggie garden when coupled with the odd weather year.

    I've been twice already. The resort is nice, paper thin walls. The pool is too small for the number of units when the resort is full. The daily resort fee (either $5 or $10 can't remember which) was added in 2014 and is slightly annoying. Its a beautiful area. In the spring they are about a month behind in terms of nature waking up (then we are in MD). I would imagine in fall they are 2-4 weeks ahead of us. It looks like it would be a good ski resort but winter units are never available. It is a great festival location and they have several throughout the summer but I've never seen availability during those times. The restaurant on site is pretty good and reasonable prices for an onsite restaurant in that type of resort.

    Nice... Congrats!

    Not including the weeks I own (some of which will be rented) I've only booked New Years week (2015/2016) on the FL Gulf Coast... a first for me and I'm really looking forward to it. Lost a few exchange opportunities because I didn't make up my mind in time and the hold expired. 😕

    I just got notice from my MROP that I matched for end of Sept at Yellowstone/Jackson Hole. At the end of Sept I will be going to Montana to Glacier Nat'l Park. I've been wanting to do this like forever!! I've really had to cut back on my travels which makes me so sad but I'm living thru everyone else's. Next April I will be going to Las Vegas and I sure would like to go to the beach somewhere.
