We are Welk owners and originally purchased around 2007 so our twin sons would have lots to do, and we live fairly close by so "day use" has been well used over the years. Offered a free two night stay for an "owner update", we came down. Now we originally purchased the larger side of the lock offs in Villa on the Greens, then about 5 years back we were approached to give them more $$ to go to their "points" program, which we did. The unit we were placed into was nicely upgraded, the smaller side studio of our lock off. Until we attended this owner update, we were pleased with everything.....however they discovered that our ownership was just what they called an "overlay" and we really didn't have complete benefits of their program. They were generously going to discount the money we paid and offer us a "real" ownership for much more $$$. This is completely unethical business practices and we won't be bullied into giving them another dime. Currently we own a deed and pay property taxes every year on it.....and we're quite happy to keep what we have. Welk continues to build more buildings against the hills and sell more people their product. While we do enjoy this resort, we are very disappointed in their business practices.
