Hawaii Timeshare Dominates Top of HOT 100 List

Hawaii Timeshare Dominates Top of HOT 100 List

Yesterday our timeshare blog announced the release of the Sell My Timeshare NOW HOT 100 list, revealing the top 100 properties to receive offers to buy timeshare or rent timeshare in 2007. For properties on the HOT 100 list, there were over 48,000 offers to buy or rent placed last year alone.

While we noted that Hawaii timeshares claimed 4 of the top 10 spots on the HOT 100 list, I didn’t go into detail about how strongly Hawaii dominates the top of the list.

Hawaii timeshares start with the HOT 100’s number one property, WorldMark by Wyndham, multi-destination resorts because four of WorldMark by Wyndham’s 60+ timeshare resorts are in Hawaii. There is the: WorldMark by Wyndham Kapaa Shore timeshare resort; the WorldMark by Wyndham Valley Isle in Lahaina timeshare resort; the WorldMark by Wyndham Kihei timeshare resort; and the WorldMark by Wyndham Kona in Kailua-Kona timeshare resort.

As I mentioned in our timeshare blog yesterday, Hawaii timeshares also claimed second place on the list with the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas; fifth place with Diamond Resorts Ka’anapali Beach Club; sixth with Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club timeshares; and tenth with the Ko Olina Beach Club timeshares.

But Hawaii timeshares accounts for over 27 percent all timeshare resorts among the top 33 properties on the list. The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North timeshares, ranked 21; the Sands of Kahana Vacation Club timeshares, was number 24; Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Hilton Hawaiian Village was number 29; and Marriott’s OceanWatch Villas timeshares ranked number 33.

Why Hawaii Timeshare?

America’s fiftieth state may be small, but in terms of what you get for your vacation dollar, it packs a punch. A Hawaii timeshare vacation means you can enjoy your choice of tropical forests, mountains, beautiful beaches, a cosmopolitan (Hawaii-style) nightlife, or a chance to explore a fascinating culture.

The diverse islands of Hawaii cater to honeymooners, surfers, retirees, family vacations, and everyone seeking the peaceful, laidback style of the islands.

While many of the first timeshares in the US were built in Hawaii, it has never lost its place as a top demand timeshare vacation destination. But let’s face it, Hawaii is one of the more expensive places to live or to visit on holiday because it is a small cluster of beautiful but relatively isolated islands, where most goods must be imported. When you add to that the fact that limited geographic area keeps land values for development very high, the cost of that fabulous Hawaii vacation can be pricey.

While you can’t cut costs by driving there instead of flying or going by cruise ship, you can take advantage of Hawaii timeshare resales to help you control two other vacation costs – meals and accommodations. The kitchen and dining areas found in most timeshares will let you choose to eat in as much as you like and save your restaurant dining for those special luaus. And when you buy Hawaii timeshare resales, you lock the price of your Hawaii vacation lodging in for as long as you own your timeshare. When you do get ready to resell Hawaii timeshare, you can do so with confidence, using indicators like the Sell My Timeshare NOW HOT 100 list to affirm that there is a strong and consistent market for Hawaii timeshare resales.

Starwood Will Be Selling Timeshare from New Sales Galleries

Starwood Will Be Selling Timeshare from New Sales Galleries

Starwood Resorts and Timeshares has announced that they are building a freestanding timeshare sales gallery inside the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel for the purpose of selling timeshare weeks at that property and at the Sheraton PGA in Port Lucie, FL.

This is the first time Starwood Resorts and Timeshares have used a purpose-built, freestanding timeshare sales office to sell timeshare units and timeshare weeks. The new Starwood Timeshare office will employ 20 to 25 timeshare sales people, and will ultimately sell timeshare weeks at all 25 Starwood properties, which includes Sheraton timeshare resorts and Westin timeshare resorts.

In an article published by PressofAtlanticCity.com, written by business editor Kevin Post, Starwood Vacation Ownership spokesperson David Matheson was quoted as saying, “Timeshares are becoming more and more of a mainstream product. Starwood and companies like it are bringing credibility to the industry.”

The article noted that Starwood timeshare units range from about $13,000 to $28,000 with annual maintenance fees of $400 to $800. On the same day that this article ran, CrainsNYBusiness.com published an article identifying that their new chief executive officer, Fritz Van Paasschen, who took the helm in September of 2007, earned approximately $9.1 million during that 4-month period.

While Van Paasschen’s base salary is less than $300,000 annually, his bonuses, incentives, and stock options accounted for the rest of his 9 million dollar-plus compensation. Leaving you to draw your own conclusions here, now seems like a good time to remind you that you can get excellent timeshare deals on Starwood timeshare resales, resorts that carry the brands of Sheraton timeshare resales or Westin timeshare resales.

Timeshare Resales from Sell My Timeshare NOW

When you buy timeshare directly from the person who owns it, you are purchasing vacation time at the same resorts as people who buy timeshare new, from the developer and typically pay much higher prices. Here’s a list of some the opportunities available in timeshare resales in Sell My Timeshare NOW’s current inventory:

Airlines Make it Easier to Take a St. Maarten Timeshare Vacation

Airlines Make it Easier to Take a St. Maarten Timeshare Vacation

Vacation in Caribbean Timeshare

Because St. Maarten is a popular vacation destination and the location of many wonderful timeshare resorts, air travel there continues to expand. Air service from the US already included American, US Air, Continental, and Delta but the additions of Spirit Airlines flying out of Fort Lauderdale and more recently, JetBlue from New York, gives timeshare owners and vacationers a lot more options in budget friendly airfares for getting to St. Maarten timeshare resorts.

St. Maarten (or Sint Maarten) and St. Martin are the French and the Dutch sides of one of the Caribbean’s most desirable vacation destinations. The two bordering governments co-exist in harmony and there are no checkpoints when crossing the borderlines, so when you vacation there you can swim on a Dutch-side beach in the morning and have lunch at a French-side café without even a trip through customs.

The island is less than 40 square miles in size, but because of the mountainous elevations, the island “lives large” with many villages built on hillside slopes. St. Maarten is considered part of the Netherlands Antilles, which also includes the islands of Bonaire and Curacao, and is just off the coast of Venezuela. The other two islands of the Netherlands Antilles are St. Eustatius and Saba, which are both close to St. Maarten.

One of the largest resorts in St. Maarten will be the new Westin St. Maarten Dawn Beach Residences in St. Maarten, where an adjacent Westin resort will provide condo owners the amenities of a hotel guest experience. Like other condotel or condo hotel developments, this should prove to be a win-win, where condo owners enjoy up to 28 days per year in their properties while receiving a percentage of the rates for the other days the condo unit is rented. At the same time, Westin can develop the property, relying on money from condo owners to greatly offset the funds the developer must secure in its mortgage.

With more St. Maarten timeshare resort and condo properties from which to choose and more ways for getting to the island, what’s stopping you from planning a St. Maarten timeshare resort vacation? The opportunities in timeshare resales in the Netherlands Antilles are huge, and Sell My Timeshare NOW is the perfect place to start planning your tropical island vacation.
