Renting Your Week on Your Own
Some owners are using sites such as Airbnb or VRBO to rent their unused timeshare week to offset the costs of their maintenance fees! This can prove to be a valuable strategy if you decide that you might not use your week or decide to split your time. Using this method can save you some expenses related to the Owner Rental Program but it also requires further action on your behalf if you desire to use a site like this.
Not going to use your use time or looking to offset your maintenance fee? You can rent your time on your own if you follow some basic rules…
- Pay your current year’s maintenance fee in full.
- Book your time during desirable dates at one of your home resorts.
- List your property on the rental site of your choice.
- Fill out the “Third Party Sales Agreement” form found below
- The form includes information such as the booking site you used, your rental guest’s name and contact info, arrival and check-out dates.
- Submit your request form at least 7 days in advance of your incoming arrivals.
- Pay for extra cleaning fee in advance if you have more than one reservation arriving during your week.
Studio – $60
1 Bedroom – $70
2 Bedroom – $85
North Lake Villa- $100
Liability for Damages
Just be aware that a “Rental Guest” using your use time is your guest and you will be ultimately responsible for any damages or theft that may occur during their stay; however, we will collect a $100 deposit from them upon arrival. If we are unable to collect for any additional damages then it will be the responsibility of the owner to cover damages and attempt to collect from the renter directly.
