On our honeymoon in 2002, DH and I ate meals at both Boma and Jiko. When we first walked into the AKL lobby, the first words out of my mouth were, "If we are ever able to buy DVC and they build one here, we HAVE to own it!". In 2008, we were finally in a financial position to afford it, thanks to an inheritance from my DH's parent's. We bought 100 points via resale. It would have actually been a little CHEAPER to buy direct, but the resale had a full year of banked points which we were able to rent out, thus saving us a little money.

In 2010, I'd been reading a lot about HHI and looking at pictures and trip reports. Even though we'd never been to South Carolina, we decided to buy a 50-point add on at HHI. We took our first trip there in April 2011 and we LOVED it! DH is even trying to talk me into selling our AKV points and buying more at HHI.

I love both my AKV and my HHI home. Are there negatives? Sure...but there are no "perfect" DVC resorts, IMHO. Each one of them has its pros and cons, but everyone sees them differently. Even though it is unlikely, DVC *could* limit your point usage to your home resort. When it comes right down to it, I would ask myself if I would enjoy my vacation if I were forced to stay at ONLY my home resort. If the answer is "yes", then you are making the right choice.
