We have never purchased a timeshare so we have a few questions - thanks to all who may chose to assist us!
We are looking to purchase a villa in the Platinum Plus season in either Bay Vista or Upper Hillside. We know upper hillside you book a week and then use it or float it (or sell it etc.) and that Bay Vista is a float.
We are leaning more towards Bay Vista, but Hillside is still an option.
We would initially want a certain week - first choice is the last week in Feb. with a second choice being in late April (until our kids are out of high school - 4 more years). Then we would want to travel whenever we could in the Plat.+ season with the then college kids in tow, if it worked out that their college break during Plat.+ season.
My question - how easy is it to get the actual float week you want in BAY VISTA - given it's not Christmas week, New Years week, or President's Week? For 2013 the Feb. vaca. was 2/23-3/4 and for 2014 the Feb. vaca. was 2/22-3/3.
Also, we've been to STJ 3 times - all in the beginning of July. Westin was busy, but not crazy busy (and the beaches all over the island weren't busy at all). How big of a change will this be at Westin and the island beaches traveling there in February?
SO much thanks!!!
