We are hoping for October 6-11 if we have some 7 month luck!

It will be out second trip to HHR. Great relaxing trip, but this time I have a goal to see more of the south. Maybe Savannah or Daufuskie island.

I am starting to think that if we love HHI after our trip that we will add on here! Do the owners feel like the higher MF's are worth it?

My friend is geting married in April 2014 and is almost 100% sure that it will be at HHI. How difficult is it to get a room at 7 months in early April if we aren't able to add on before then?

Thanks for any advice!

HHI is a small resort where most units are true 2BR (not lock-off). So if you're likely to often want something else than a 2BR, you might be out of luck at 7 mo, especially during Summer.

Our kid have spring break. The first full week of April every year. In 2011, we got lucky and got a 1BR for 5 nights at the 7 month mark without a wait list. We bought an add-on but decided on a 2BR for our 2013 trip. I was able to book 4 nights with points at 11 months, but when I tried to book the 5th night at 7 months, it was unavailable by the time I called.

THanks for listing Star Gazing. Living in Savannah, I am not use to just looking at the sky outside. I am use to going out 50 or so miles.

HHI actually can be quite dark. Not perfect, but, nice indeed.

Sleeper Chair in 2 Bedroom Villas

Figured you all would know if there is a sleeper chair in the two bedroom Villas at HHI. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Do you own there, or did you just get really lucky with a summer reservation?

I definitely think the higher dues are worth it..if you have your heart set on a popular time and/or if you want something other then a 2 bedroom.
My brother and sister in law waitlisted for July, 7 months put, and it never came through.
They paid cash for the week. I booked at 11 months, waitlisted a couple of days at 7 months(1 bedroom) because i didnt have enough HH points, and was lucky and got it. Only because I waitlisted each of the nights separately since I only needed two.

If you can't get in at your favorite WDW resort, you have a bunch of others to use your points at, in HH, you only have the one option, so for me, I'll pay the higher dues.

I only wish I had more points! We have 100 thinking we'd go every other year..that was 12 years ago and we've been every single year. LOL

Even though it has not been a month yet, I am starting to think my waitlist for June will not come through. We have a BLT contract and have never stayed at HHI. I would like to stay there before we drive into another contract at HHI.

I'd suggest renting from a HHI owner before you buy if your dates for next summer are flexible.
