Time Sharing Your Vacation Home

Aug 18, 2007
When people enjoy their vacation in a certain destination, they promise to return and spend their next vacation in the same place. Some like it so much that they even consider home exchange or, for those who have the means, time-share ownership.

However, for those who have fallen deeply in-love with the place, the people and the culture, they go all out. They make it their home away from home by buying a property and staying. Which can mean that every vacation time you have somewhere to rest, and may be even for private reasons.

But then, you also have people who just want to seek a place elsewhere. They want to go out of their comfort zones, venture out into another country and spend the rest of their lives (or part of it) there. They want to learn more the culture of that country.

Here are some suggestions; a lot of the elderly Europeans I know have bought a second (vacation) home. They have either purchased a vacation house in places with warmer climates like Spain and Italy or, they have opted to buy a small chateau in Switzerland or Austria with ski-in, ski-out access.

The problem that most of them face is the upkeep of these second homes. It just takes too much work for a place which they only use a few weeks per year. I guess none of them thought of investing in vacation timeshare, instead.

Granted that vacation timeshare would not fit the needs of everyone, it still is worth considering. There are especially various places you can see on what they are offering.

You can purchase a villa on a Sheraton or Westin property, without the additional headache of maintenance and upkeep, can make it a possibility.

Purchase a condo on one of the participating Sheraton or Westin properties in places like the Bahamas, Palm Springs, and Maui and you'll be able to come back each year, often with the same neighbors. It's so quaint! Even better, the villas usually come with private balconies, entertainment centers and whirlpools, so you'll be living' large while you're there.

If you are seriously considering time-sharing for your next vacation, you might want to read this first.

However, note that applying for credit in order to afford a timeshare property means that you cannot afford to get one. But, don't fret. You can always just book that villa or hotel on a per night basis.
