In general, people rent their points for $10.00/point. 5 days (arriving Sunday, leaving Friday- this would be the first 2 weeks in Dec.), in a 2 bedroom, at BCV during that time would be about 65 points- so it'd cost you $1700.00 for the stay at BCV. Now.... you don't get daily maid service, but you will get an awesome resort, in an awesome location with an awesome pool, an awesome full kitchen , living room, 2 bedrooms and a washer & dryer. Is that awsome enough for you???
This sooo wasn't meant for me but I must comment...WHY am I not doing this???? I need to start looking into this!!! We would only need a studio. If a 2 bedroom is $1700 for 5 days, a studio is probably cheaper than paying for a room at AKL!!!

A studio at BCV's during that time would be 65 points or $650.00- Problem is, DURING THE 2 weeks before Christmas and Christmas time- you really have to have things lined up ahead of time. Like 11 months ahead of time. But if you can arrange it, you 've got it made!

Miranda, with outfits like that you should no longer consider yourself a beginner!

There aren't elevators and I would have had a hard time going back to the room by myself with dd2. We had our huge carseat stroller combo with us.

So if any of your children are still in a stroller request the ground floor!
We were there in May and I recall riding the elevator when we got there and when we left with our luggage. THey are few and far between but our building had at least one. We usually stay off property but we enjoyed POFQ, quiet and laidback.

Marah...Soo sorry to hear that your trip was not as magical as it could have been. As a mom of a "special" little girl, we had a trip 2 years ago that was a disaster and even had to be cut short. I know how disappointing it can be & I hope that you are able to find some of the fun for from the trip & I pray that all of your children are okay and everyone returned safe and healthy.

So at a less busy time of year it could be LESS than $650???? Oh I am so looking into this for our next trip!

I leave to the fabric store and you are already on page 5.

I have to go get my moving buddy, since we just went to the fabric store she is probably off planning outfits.

I think the FQ has elevators, but Riverside doesn't. Or I'm completely off my rocker.
