Starwood Vacation Ownership
With over 5700 properties in over 100 countries, Starwood is an amazing choice to look into, especially for vacation ownership enthusiasts. However, there is an easier and more affordable way to get the timeshare ownership experience without the hefty price tag, and that is through Starwood timeshare resales.
Why Buy Starwood Timeshare?
There are a number of tempting reasons to buy a Starwood timeshare, and each will certainly benefit you on your future vacations. For starters, your Starwood timeshare purchase gives you a week at a stunning resort every year. With Starwood, you can also choose a unit size that is perfect for your needs and a week that is ideal for your schedule. Starwood units range in size from studios to three bedroom villas, so you can get what is best for you and your family and/or friends.
Furthermore, you can plan your vacations around your schedule. Are you a busy person? That is no problem! Starwood has the best vacation option for you. With this fantastic resort, you have the choice between buying a fixed week or a floating week. A fixed week will guarantee that your vacation is during the same week each year, while a floating week gives you more flexibility when scheduling your vacations. Therefore, if you know ahead of time that you will have a specific time off for vacations, such as winter break, then you can choose a fixed week. On the other hand, if your vacation days change from year to year, perhaps for work, you can choose a floating week to better suit your needs.
Some Starwood resorts will include StarOptions with your purchase. These allow you to exchange your timeshare within the Starwood network. For instance, if you are looking to vacation at a different Starwood resort at a different location one year, you would have the option to exchange your timeshare for your given vacation week that year. All Starwood resorts are available to trade with Interval International or another external exchange company.
What to Consider When Buying a Starwood Timeshare
If you are looking for the most flexibility in your vacation ownership, you should consider buying a StarOptions Mandatory timeshare. Certain Starwood resorts provide points, called StarOptions, to use for exchanging your resort. There are currently six StarOptions Mandatory resorts:
• Harborside Resort at Atlantis (Phase I and II ) – Bahamas
• Sheraton Visitant Villages (Bella and Key West phases) – Florida
• Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas – Hawaii
• Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North – Hawaii
• Westin Kierland Villas – Arizona
• Westin St. John Resort Villas (Hillside and Bay Vista) – U.S. Virgin Islands
Only StarOptions Mandatory resorts will allow you to use StarOptions to exchange your timeshare. If you buy timeshare at another Starwood resort, known as StarOptions Voluntary, you may still use an external exchange company such as Interval International to trade your timeshare with another resort.
Keep in mind that you can buy Starwood points on the resale market to save thousands off your annual vacations.
