We made a simple exchange to go to the Hawaiian Islands for two weeks instead of the Aplenland Sporthotel. Without any difficulties in make the exchange we had the best two week of our lives in paradise. The people, food, attractions, and adventure was exactly what we longed for.
We purchased this time share because my husband loved to travel. He was in the Navy in his 20's and traveled to Europe many, many times. He was able to go to England, Spain, Holy Loch and Edinburg, Scotland which were some of his favorite places. He talked about these places often. He always wanted to take me back there, but unfortunately time got away from us and never allowed it to happen.
We purchased the timeshare as an investment back in the early '90's because "he" really wanted to travel again someday. We paid cash for it, so we only had the maintenance fees, which were and still are reasonable. No loans on the investment, I was not a traveler. My parents owned their own business and we never went anywhere. We felt having a time share would make traveling easier, more fun with all the various options available and once you have it you will use it. Plus we could let our children also take advantage of going on trips with our program. I hate to let this wonderful timeshare sit - never being used when someone else, another family, would be able to take advantage of going places and seeing the world.
The maintenance fees have remained the same since we purchased and are less than most. Some maintenance fees go up, ours never did.
