Marriott Timeshares Bigger and Better in St Thomas

Marriott Vacation Club International has announced the second phase opening of its Marriott timeshares at Frenchman’s Cove in St. Thomas. The new phase includes 30 additional two-bedroom timeshare villas and a full service restaurant.

Balconies off each villa overlook the sugar-white sand beaches of Pacquereau Bay. Other features of the timeshare units include fully equipped kitchens, dining areas, a washer and dryer, and multiple Sony televisions and DVD players. The resort is situated on 13 waterfront acres where tropical mountains slope to Caribbean-blue waters.

Marriott Vacation Club International views St. Thomas as a high-demand area among their vacation property owners, and regular readers of the timeshare blog may recall our Timeshare Owners Blog posting one chilly day last February when I wrote about Wyndham Vacation Resorts acquiring the Old Beach Palace resort in St. Thomas. At that time, I quoted Lisa Burby, senior director of Wyndham Vacation Ownership, as saying, “St. Thomas is an extremely popular destination for our owners.”

With Marriott and Wyndham timeshares taking the same position here, I’d say that buying a St. Thomas timeshare resale with plans to use it, rent it, or resell it in the future, is a pretty solid plan.

Here’s Marriott’s great video that appears on You-Tube. If it doesn’t make you want to go to St. Thomas, then the beach just isn’t for you!
