Frequently Asked Questions

1.  What is a timeshare?

A timeshare is like a vacation condo. They are much more spacious than hotel rooms - for about the same cost, or even less.  Often they have all the amenities of a hotel, right on site. You will be treated just like an owner.

2.  Do they provide daily maid service?

Most do not include daily maid service.  Staying in a timeshare is more like staying in a private condo that is completely and thoroughly cleaned between guests.  Many do provide a mid-week cleaning, and some will provide full maid-service for a daily fee, that you would pay directly to the resort. 

3.  What is provided at the resort?

They are fully-furnished condos.  All linens and standard household equipment and kitchen items are provided.  Most provide a starter supply of other items like toilet paper, soap, shampoo, kitchen products, etc.  One of the advantages of a timeshare is having a kitchen if you want to do some cooking, or just have snacks and cold drink on hand.  Most resorts are near major grocery stores, so it's not necessary to bring food from home, unless you just want to.

4.  Why full payment upfront?

If someone backs out at the last minute the unit will sit empty, and the week will be a total loss for me.  That's why I require full payment upfront, and there are no cancellations or refunds.  If you are concerned about having to cancel, it is recommended that you buy travel insurance.  It will cover all your expenses if you have a family emergency and have to cancel.

5.  How do I know that the resort has my reservation?

After you pay your deposit to lock-in your reservation, you will receive a confirmation in your name.  You will be able to call the resort directly and confirm your reservation before you make your final payment.

6.  What is Paypal?

Paypal is an online payment system owned by eBay.  It is safe and secure.  When you make a payment with Paypal, Paypal deposits the money in my Paypal account.  Also, Paypal payments take just a few minutes, so you can lock in your reservation quickly and safely.  If you have any problems with your payment, you will have the double protection of Paypal and your credit card.  


Even if you do not have a Paypal account, when I email you a Paypal Invoice it will walk you right through the payment process. 

7.  Will I have to attend a sales presentation if I rent from you?

No! In fact, if you are invited to attend one I recommend that you decline. Timeshare sales people are known for high-pressure, misleading, sales tactics.  Don’t waste your precious vacation time!

8  What if I have more questions?

Please feel free to email me any and every question you have - I want you to feel completely comfortable with the rental process.

9.  Can I call you?
