New Timeshares at Steamboat Sheraton Resort

By | General Timeshare Information | No Comments

Sheraton SteamboatNew timeshare units might be on their way in Steamboat Springs at Sheraton’s resort in Colorado. Starwood Hotels and Resorts, who owns Steamboat Sheraton, announced that the company is deciding whether to dedicate the new units at Steamboat to being timeshare villas.

In the same announcement, Starwood said they are also looking at turning five other properties into timeshares. The move to vacation ownership comes from the high revenues produced by Starwood’s other timeshare properties. If the trend continues, new timeshare resorts could prove to be very lucrative for the company.

The timeshare resorts are ran by Starwood Vacation Ownership, which already manages 22 timeshare hotels internationally. In 2014, Starwood Vacation Ownership made $640 million in revenue. That number has enticed Starwood to look at expanding their timeshare reach.

Since Starwood’s acquisition of the property in 2007, they have already expanded the two- and three-bedroom villas, and put another $16 million into resort renovations in 2013, presumably preparing to expand the resort’s timeshare offerings.

Currently, Steamboat Sheraton contains 287 units, including 22 condominiums and 21 timeshare units. Word on how many new units will be at the resort has yet to be revealed.

Starwood Hotels is serious about expanding their timeshare options. They have recently built new units at their Mexico and Kauai, Hawaii resorts, and have discussed building new resorts across the country, but nothing official has been released yet.

Although not all timeshare resorts are created equal, a smart timeshare resale purchase can be a long-term investment as desire for timeshare properties grows.

This is exciting news for the timeshare industry. We will follow Steamboat Sheraton closely, as well as other Starwood resorts for new updates on their timeshare exploits.

Destination Nassau

By | Time to Share's HOT Spots | No Comments

The Bahamas aren’t so far away, but they seem like another world of adventure. Whether for travelers who prefer to stay within their realm of familiarity, or for globetrotters who like to get lost in back alleys to discover something new about local culture, Nassau offers a host of possibilities.

 

Some access Nassau by cruise, as it remains a major port of call for several cruise lines, but others prefer to make it their sole destination through commercial or private flights. And there’s no wonder why: with limitless white sand beaches and opportunities for watersports ranging from fishing, sailing, snorkeling, a waterpark, and more, water lovers flock to the island to enjoy the splash and sun.

 

Nassau also boasts exceptional golf and world-class spas, with upscale and designer shopping areas for a leisurely afternoon. Casinos and clubs dot the city’s skyline, providing night owls with their own late night playgrounds. And for foodies, Nassau offers a culinary delight of various local cooking courses and Bahamian cuisines. Take advantage of one of the many tours of distilleries, cigar rolling, and chocolate factories, or visit the Straw Market. A unique place to shop for handmade straw items like baskets, hats, bags and dolls, it’s a great way to experience a bit of culture and pick up unique souvenirs.

 

A longtime city of luxury, Nassau offers the best in accommodations for the discriminating traveler. Don’t worry: there are affordable options too. Wyndham and Sheraton both have established timeshare hotels on the island that accord with their brand names’ levels of comfort and style, but you can find a Best Western motel, too. Timeshare properties are a must in the Bahamas for vacationers who can’t stay away, and Harborside at Atlantis is a proven favorite.

 

With warm, mild weather, the Bahamas are a year-round destination, and close to the U.S., are relatively inexpensive from Miami, Galveston, Orlando, and other southern port cities. Don’t wait to plan your next vacation, but consider Nassau today for its luxury, brilliance and options where you can sample its laid back Caribbean lifestyle.

 

Premier Timeshare Resale has several Bahamas timeshare resale properties for sale. Browse current listings for timeshare resales in the Bahamas, inquire about one of the many of the Bahamas timeshare properties, or get an appraisal on a Bahamian property that you already own through our website.

Travel Spotlight: Seattle

By | Reviews to Share | No Comments

After a few days in Seattle, I’m realizing that this city pretty much has it all. Want a west-coast experience? Laid-back beaches abound. If you’re interested in the sea, the city offers an array of experiences like the free salmon ladder where you can watch fish swim upstream from the ocean one small waterfall at a time, and with docks and mariner’s museums, there’s enough here to hold your interest in oceanic matters for as long as your attention span. The city’s downtown area and Pioneer Market have a distinctly urban flavor with upscale shopping, art galleriers and public art installations, haute cuisine and brew-pubs, but to escape all that, a hidden free-to-the-public waterfall garden offers a welcome retreat. Even with the rain, the city is geared toward outdoor exploits, and city parks offer hiking trails through its verdant rainforest trees as well as children’s playgrounds. It’s easy to get around, and day-excursions can take you sailing, whale-watching, or to the nearby island where the quaint city of Victoria and its famous Butchart Gardens will charm you for several hours. As Washington state’s cultural capital and center of activity, the diversity in character and activity offering is astounding while naturally blending in to the social and geographical landscape.

 

Accommodations in the area vary from the affordable to the extravagant. From boutique hotels and exquisite and privately run inns and bed-and-breakfasts, Seattle also offers stays at trusted properties. The Seattle Marriott Waterfront (and several Marriott properties) provide the familiar Marriott guarantee for comfort and style. Hilton, Hyatt, Sheraton, and Westin all offer luxurious stays in fabulous locations for the traveler who wants to be in the middle of it all.

Though the pickings are slim for timeshare properties in Seattle, many abound in Washington state, where travelers can enjoy the cascade mountains and greenery that decks the hills of Washington’s coast year-round. Worldmark by Wyndham offers several properties alone, and Ocean Shores is a popular place for city dwellers to take a weekend away from the hubbub.

 

Summer is upon us, so especially if you have reward or trade points, don’t waste time and get yourself to this fabulous place that has so much to offer. (Just don’t forget your umbrella!)
