I am VERY VERY HAPPY to say that we added on at AKV just last week. We have an October UY and there were still a few points left, so we have live inventory and can book a stay anytime. Well I waited one day to have my points in the system, and called a booked my April 09 stay in Jambo House!

All this came about because we spent one night in a one bedroom in Jambo House last month during our week long DVC vacation and totally fell in love. We visit the resort every trip - usually for Boma and a view of the animals, but staying there was a totally different experience. I was completely bent on getting an add on there, it took my husband about 2 seconds to agree! So I called my guide, and we are now proud owners at AKV as well as BWV. I will never regret this decision and hope we have the health and fortune to enjoy years of vacationing here with our kids and future (hopefully grandchildren! Here's a couple of pics from our recent trip:

Well, we're back from 5 nights concierge at AKV followed by 2 nights at the BWV.

Just some quick points on AKV.
Concierge, imo, is a GREAT deal points-wise. The breakfast alone was worth the added two points per night of stay for our studio. This doesn't go into the snacks and dinner selections.

Did the sunrise and sunset safaris and the Wildlife Discovery Excursion. Loved them all.

Welcome Home!

Just wanted to say "Welcome Home" to the many of you that have jumped on saying you've bought into AKV.

I think we have such a beautiful resort! We are lucky people!

Hi Everyone,

As usual my guide is always away when I need to talk to him which has only been twice in the last two years! lol I wanted to add 50 points on at AKV. Does anyone know if the 50 point Add-on incentive is still going on? I heard you get an $8 discount per point bringing each point to $96 and also a free set of 50 points? If anyone can confirm this who has recently added on that would be great. I just want to check the budget and really figure everything out so I'm ready when my guide gets back to me.

The deal is still on. I just added on 50 pts on Friday. The deal is $8 off. Depending upon your UY, if you are still in your 2007 UY and their are Jambo points in inventory, you will receive 2007 points. If not, you will receive what they are calling AKV2 points, which will be in Kidani.

The 2008 points can't be used in 2008, but are bankable to 2009. You will not be charged dues on these points in 2008 and the dues on the 50 points will be prorated in 2009 depending upon when your unit is opened.

Hope that helps!

Thanks so much! I wish you could talk to another guide! I want to try to get the add-on with Jambo so I can use them right away. Any idea if you can call someone else to get this done or does it have to be your guide? O and did you get a free set of points or no? Thanks again!

Who is your guide? What does their voice mail message say?

In terms of free 50 points, I have the 2008 with no dues, but I can't use them until 2009.

My guide is Rob Shapiro. He is out until tomorrow as well. But he always checks his voice mail and sometimes even returns calls from his home office! I would give your guide a call tomorrow. Let us know how you do!
