Confused mouskeeping schedule?

When we called mousekeeping on the 4 th day we were told that we are scheduled for full cleaning on the 4th day and T/T on the 8th.
It was no big deal to me but confusing nonetheless.

If your stay was 8 nights or more, that is correct.

For stays of 8 nights or more, you get full cleaning on day 4 and trash and towel on day 8.

For stays of 7 nights or less, you only get one service...trash and towel on day 4.

It seems backwards to me too, but since housekeeping does a full cleaning when a guest checks out, I figure that is the reasoning for doing the full cleaning on day 4.

I've seen a little sign on the kitchen counter in the past reminding me about housekeeping services. It's always been less than eight nights, T&T on day 4. Eight nights or more, full cleaning on day four, T&T on day 8.

Think about it. You are going to be there eight nights. What is the point in giving you clean sheets on day eight if you are only going to be there one more night?

Why don't we get Mousekeeping everyday? We pay $30,000 for DVC then $1400/year only to get it once a week? And only partial services at that?

Timeshares typically do not have daily housekeeping. To provide it would likely require increasing the housekeeping portion of the dues (currently one of the highest items in your dues) by 2 to 3 times, and there are many who would rather not have daily housekeeping including because of the higher dues that would be required. Thus, if you want it you can pay the extra fee for it and not have other members bear the cost through dues. Note, if I recall correctly, OKW originally did have daily housekeeping but it did not last for long.

Because if they did that, you wouldn't be able to afford the maintenance fees! I HATE having housekeeping in during our stay anyway. I'd be happy if they would just make sure they do an extra good cleaning between guests and let me take care of things myself while I'm there.

Because dues would be much higher to pay for it. Housekeeping is the highest item in the dues operating budget. With the current system, for 2013 the dues for housekeeping at BWV is $1.04 per point. If it was daily, it could easily be 3 or 4 times that. I like the system, those who want more frequent housekeeping can pay for it and allow the rest of us who don't want it have lower dues.

You can select the services you want:

Quote:
Housekeeping
Trash & Towel Service
For stays of seven or less nights, Trash & Towel Service is provided on day four, regardless of whether you're using Member-discounted cash, Vacation Points or a combination of both.

With Trash & Towel service, Housekeeping will:

Empty trash and replace liners in trash bins.
Provide fresh bathroom linens.
Replace shampoo, facial soap and bath soap.
Replenish facial tissues, paper towels and toilet paper.
Replenish coffee, sugar, cream and sweeteners.
Replenish dishwashing liquid, dishwashing detergent, sponges and laundry detergent as needed in one-, two- and three-bedroom Vacation Homes.

Full Cleaning Service
For stays of eight or more nights, Full Cleaning Service is provided on day four and Trash & Towel Service is provided on day eight. After that, the cycle begins again on day 12, regardless of whether you're using Member-discounted cash, Vacation Points or a combination of both.

With Full Cleaning service, Housekeeping will provide everything included with the Trash & Towel Service, plus:

Change the bed linens.
Vacuum and dust the Vacation Home.
Clean the bathroom(s).
Clean the kitchen/kitchenette and wash the dishes.

Pay As You Play
With Pay As You Play service, you'll be provided with the following amenities free of charge at the start of your stay. After that, you may purchase more for the following fees:

Toiletries Package, $5.00 - 1 facial soap, 1 bath soap, 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner, 1 shower gel

If they did, it didn't last but a few months. It was limited housekeeping when I bought in May 1992. The resort opened December 20, 1991.

I'm one that really LIKES not having daily housekeeping services. I think the current schedule is a great compromise, rather than no service at all.

I take it this way. I don't vacuum every day. I don't change towels every day. I make my bed every morning and only change sheets once a week. It's my home away from home.

Totally agree. When we stay at hotels for more than one night, we usually put a note out for the cleaners to skip our room. I think the DVC schedule is great.

Exactly. I don't like Mousekeeping in the room myself. We can make our own beds and hang the towels up to dry. I would not be for raising dues, to get it more often.
