UPDATE:

I never heard back from the seller. I disputed the charge and ebay refunded my money. The seller did not fight the process, so I appreciate that. I am not sure what was wrong with the reservation that this had to happen in the first place?!? Maybe personal issues? Either way, I am glad to have the situation fixed!

I found a new seller who has been great with communication. (Thankfully!!!) And guess what? I have already received the BC confirmaton letter. Woo hoo!!

So, I would say that there is a bit of risk involved with renting a time share from ebay. It does involve a bit of blind trust, which is hard to do. Ebay is a big, big marketplace and you are dealing with so many different types of sellers. Anyway, I am now very happy to have my reservation set, and can't wait for our first trip to BC.

Thanks to everyone for sharing BC renting experiences. It was very helpful to me!

Planning a vacation should be fun...not stressful! As someone pointed out earlier in the thread...part of the deal of getting a great price by renting a time share is the unknown. WBC can be rented directly from Wyndham for 2 or 3 times the price, but it is pretty much guaranteed. It is kind of a trade off, isn't it?

As it was my first time I was extremely anxious about this, and to be fair it is pretty out of your hands, You can do everything the right way and still get the proverbial box of rocks, and if it happens you really don't have any recourse that will help when you need it. At some point you have to put your trust into people ( within reason). I'll wait till closer to the departure date and confirm the reservation with WBC but until then I'm not going to worry about it.

I think it is unfortunate that you had such poor communication, but for me the savings were well worth the small chance I'm getting scammed.

I'm glad that it seems to have worked out for you. I don't want to pry but did the new reservation cost more, less or the same as the first one ?

OP, now that everything has been resolved, how about telling us the Ebay name of the seller you had the problems with....personally I would like to know so I can avoid them in the future.
