A Timeshare Might Solve President Obama’s Vacation Dilemma
Wednesday, July 8, 2009
The New York Times says the Obama family is looking for a place for their summer vacation. Word is, they have already narrowed down the destination to Martha’s Vineyard, but may not have arranged their actual vacation lodging. As pointed out in a New York Times article, “President’s Vacation: Not Much of a Secret,” the Obama’s, (unlike many of the past Presidential families) do not own a vacation home.
So where exactly the Obama family will be staying during their August vacation remains in question. Will it be a hotel? A private residence? A quaint bed and breakfast?
How about a timeshare, Mr. President? With a timeshare, you can bypass the time and energy spent in vacation planning and scheduling, and go straight for some vacation relaxation.
Vacationing Celebrities and Dignitaries Boost Local Economies
In 1993, President and Mrs. Clinton (who also did not own a vacation home) vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard, staying at the Mansion House hotel. In advance of their arrival, the hotel’s owner hung a banner, welcoming the Clintons for their 10-day vacation stay. According to the New York Times, Charles J. Ogletree, a law professor at Harvard and summertime resident at Martha’s Vineyard says, “The rumor mill (about where the Obama’s will stay) is rampant …”
Wherever a Presidential family is vacationing, businesspeople in the area view it with anticipation, calling a Presidential visit, “… great for business … like our own islandwide recovery package.”
Timeshare is a Logical and Luxurious Solution to the Vacation Dilemma
If you, like the Obama’s, and the majority of other Americans, do not own a vacation home, don’t let that stop you from enjoying a fabulous summer retreat. Buy timeshare resales or enjoy a timeshare rental and experience all the benefits of vacation ownership without any of the year-round maintenance hassles and responsibilities.
Timeshares and timeshare resales make sense in any economic climate, but they have never been a better solution than they are right now. Despite the challenges of the economy, vacationing is still critical. As President Obama himself points out, “The most important thing you need to do is to have big chunks of time during the day when all you’re doing is thinking …” If not, he said, “… you start making mistakes or you lose the big picture.”
