Marriott Vacation Club Plans to Expand in Three Key Markets

Marriott owners and fans: rejoice! Marriott Vacation Club plans to expand in three key markets. First, the company indicated that they have acquired a property in South Beach, Florida. This was a long anticipated move by Marriott. Second, Marriott Vacation Club has taken over the management of a property in New York City. Third, Marriott announced plans to expand their existing resort: Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club in Oahu.

In 2015, Marriott said that they planned to acquire a 182-unit property in South Beach, Florida. Recently, Marriott indicated that this sale would not be proceeding. Instead, Marriott purchased The Edgewater Hotel in South Beach, Miami, Florida. The Edgewater was built in 1936 and offers 49 studios and suites. These units are available for booking through the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Exchange Program as well as through Interval International. Now branded as Marriott Vacation Club, South Beach, the property is located on the 1400 block of Ocean Drive and offers a rich South Beach experience.
NY SkylineEarlier in 2016, Marriott announced an expansion in New York City with the management of The Strand Hotel. The Strand Hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan on 37th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Marriott plans to purchase the 176-unit hotel over time, beginning in 2018. It will be rebranded as a Marriott Vacation Club destination this month and is already available to existing owners to book through the Destinations Exchange Program.
Oahu SunriseMeanwhile in Hawaii, Marriott Vacations Worldwide says that they plan to add as many as 202 new timeshare units to their popular Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club in Oahu. Currently Marriott’s Ko’Olina Beach Club has over 500 villas. Oahu is one of the most popular destinations in Hawaii and the Ko’Olina Beach Club has been a staple for families and couples alike.
Marriott’s Vacation Club Destinations points are an ideal way to explore these two new locations as well as existing Marriott locations, like Ko’Olina. Premier Timeshare Resale has licensed resale agents able to assist you in buying Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Points. Contact us today!

Timeshare Travel Tips: Plan Your Family Vacation Now

The end of February is just around the corner, and with the brutal winter that much of the country has seen this year, many families are beginning to map out their spring break or summer vacations. Read on for a few tips about how to plan your family trip smart and make the most out of the vacation time together.


Make a travel wish list—wherever you’re going, talk to everybody in the family and see what they’re interested in doing there? Dad wants to visit revolutionary wartime pubs, Mom wants to see a Shakespeare in Boston Common, our ten year old wants to see the USS Constitution, and the 5 year old wants icecream. Done. Our family should be staying in Marriott’s Custom House.

Research, research, research—should our travel route include freeways or scenic drives? Should we plan to travel early, midday or evening? Finding the best flights and deciding where to eat aren’t in the same category, but researching both will let you make the most out of your limited time. TripAdvisor has some great ideas for destinations, itineraries, and attractions.

Choose a destination for everyone—cruises and theme parks like Disneyland or Disneyworld often make family vacations easier. Adults aren’t just sitting around waiting for kids to get done riding rollercoasters—there are exciting options for everyone, like spending the night in a treehouse, or strolling around the Food and Wine festivals at Epcot.


Memorable vacations can occur in any destination, but choosing one that fits your family’s interests, budgetary limitations, and accommodation preferences will help ensure that spending several days at a time with your family is not just bearable—it’s enjoyable! Places like New York City can exhilarate, while any number of Hawaii timeshare resale resorts will bathe you in the lap of luxury and exquisite tranquility. You just have to find which works for you.Family-vacation-timeshare-resalae


That’s where research comes in! Especially if you’re thinking about buying or selling a timeshare resale, please do your research before transferring money or signing contracts. Using a licensed real estate agent in good reputation who NEVER CHARGES UPFRONT FEES is a good way to avoid scams, and talking your vacation options over with someone who is not a high-pressure salesperson can help you explore what may be right for your family. Contact Premier Timeshare Resale today to learn more.


World’s Best Island Living, and a few timeshares that can take you there

Each year TripAdvisor puts out several “best of” lists that enable travelers to sift through mountains of information and find out which travel destinations are the best reviewed places to set your sights on. This time, it’s islands. While they’ve given you ten islands to choose from, we’ll highlight three that are accessible by timeshare trades and don’t require 24 hours on a flight.


First up is Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. One of the world’s top beach destination, Providenciales is also the most populated of the Turks and Caicos islands. Azul water and white sands stretching for miles in combination with its thriving tourist industry that is accustomed and equipped to cater to Western comforts together make this island a popular destination worth visiting. Turks and Caicos timeshare resale is around too, for those who love timeshare travel and want to stay somewhere familiar.


Next on the list doesn’t require an international flight—Marco Island, Florida. Just over an hour and a half drive from Miami, it’s amazingly accessible and quite a bit more affordable than traveling overseas. Strawberry daiquiris are easy to come by beachside, and seashell scavenging in the sun is a favorite activity to unwind. Golf, tennis, Everglade exploration, or nature hikes are all great pastimes in the delicious island air. Marco Island Florida timeshare resales offer familiar and trusted names, too, like Marriott’s Crystal Shores and a Radisson.

Finally, for a different kind of climate, the island of Lewis and Harris in Scotland has a fairy tale feel to it. With medieval villages to explore and a sun that never sets in summer, the island can charm you with its genuine castle, bay villages, and vacation rentals that start at $89 a night. For those who want a timeshare stay, plenty of timeshare resales in the UK offer a jumping off point from which travelers can journey up to Lewis and Harris.


If island vacations or traveling internationally aren’t your pleasures, maybe you’d like to peruse your options in the mountain west or lakeside for the views. Whatever your fancy, though, if you’re taking an annual vacation, you might consider buying a timeshare resale: at 60% off developer prices they can be found at what you’d spend on your vacation anyway, opening doors to new places and shaving off hassles of vacation planning simultaneously.

Unlimited Paid Vacation: annual timeshare use made easy

Some companies in the US are giving their employees unlimited paid vacation days, according to this article in NBC News online. All work and no play does indeed make Jack a dull boy, apparently, and not being sharp and ready to handle the important and complex tasks that come your way on-the-job isn’t ideal. Companies that are offering their employees unlimited paid vacation days are finding that people who take vacations come back refreshed and ready to work, and are actually more productive than employees who are chained to their desk.


It’s not around for everyone yet, as only 1% of companies are offering “endless summer” for their employees, but some notable companies like Netflix are on board with the idea, and combine sick days, personal days, and vacation days. Companies are arguing that without worrying about days accruing and not needing to pay out unused vacation days when an employee leaves is better for the employer, and that employees tend to take on average the same amount of time away from work that they do with limited days.

What would you do with unlimited vacation days? It would certainly make planning that annual timeshare vacation a little easier. Without having to earmark vacation days six months in advance and then worry about getting ill in early spring and having to go to work with the sniffles, you could rest easy in bed with a box of tissues and daydream about your upcoming South Carolina vacation.

Myrtle Beach  timeshare resales boast access to the nation’s number 3 boardwalk (designated by National Geographic) and miles of sandy beaches for swimming, hiking, biking and fishing. Marriott’s Ocean Watch Villas timeshare resales are a favorite of the area, and with two outdoor pools and nearby day activities including spas, horseback riding, sailing, and golf, it’s an ideal place to spend a few of your unlimited vacation days.


Hilton Head Island timeshare resales abound as well; the island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic and enjoyable activities like the largest annual outdoor tented wine tasting event on the east coast and the Dove Street Festival of Lights. Marriott’s properties at Barony Beach Club, Monarch, SurfWatch, Grande Ocean, and Harbour Club and Point offer vacationers a variety of views and deluxe down pillows. All you have to watch out for is sunburn.


Even if you’re not lucky enough to get unlimited paid vacation, it’s important to take time off—so contact a licensed real estate agent at Premier Timeshare Resale today to check out South Carolina timeshare resales and complain about not having enough paid vacation days. We’ll listen.

Olympic Hosts—Did Someone Say Missouri?

That’s right; the 1904 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the III Olympiad, were hosted in St. Louis, Missouri. They lasted four and a half months from start to finish, and the competitions were much of a side-show to the World’s Fair. Lost in the chaos of more popular exhibitions, the 1904 Summer Games were somewhat of a flop. But maybe you get what you pay for; that is, St. Louis rather swept the rug (and the Olympic Games) out from under the feet of Chicago, IL, the official winner of the Olympic bid. Apparently, the organizers of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (that chaotic multi-exhibit fair) informed the Chicago planning committee that their own international sports events would eclipse the Olympic Games unless they were moved to St. Louis. Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement, gave in and handed them over to St. Louis.

St. Louis may seem like a strange choice more than a hundred years later, but it is one of the largest cities in the Midwest and one rooted in the industrial tradition. Travelers to the border town will find a thriving hipster counter-culture and a slow-food movement for all the foodies interested in home-grown, hormone free eatables. But while St. Louis is not exactly a relaxation destination, several other spots in Missouri are.


Branson, for example, is nicknamed the Live Entertainment Capital of the World. With numerous entertainment theaters, Branson draws tourists from all over the Midwest and invites them to partake in attractions such as the Hollywood Wax Museum, wineries, cave tours, and the Titanic Museum, a half-scale replica of the famous ship and iceberg. Branson timeshare resales abound, too, with varying levels of luxury and affordability. Marriott, Westgate, Wyndham and Worldmark all have timeshare properties in Branson, and if you’re interested, inquire with PTR about Branson Timeshare Resales Today.

Osage Beach and Lake Ozark are twin towns on a large lake in northwest Missouri, and feature getaway accommodations on the beach or with fabulous lake views. Hiking, fishing, barbequing or just sunbathing in the beautiful Ozarks can’t be beat for a more laid back vacation. The Four Seasons and Worldmark timeshare resales in Lake Ozark and Osage Beach are some of the better known properties available.


Yep, we said Missouri! Maybe you had something else in mind for your next vacation, but we strongly recommend taking a second look at the affordable and charming (and surprisingly cosmopolitan) options to be found here with Missouri timeshare resales.
