I posted this over on the DVC boards but was getting no advice so I'm gonna do it here again on the budget boards because I'm sure you all will give me sound advice! Here goes: O'kay, DH has a co-worker who owns there and has a trip booked for 11/11-11/15/06 but can't make it. He says that it is a one bedroom. He has very graciously offerred the unit to DH (because he knows that DH has a travel crazy wife) for $200 total which I assume to be at his base maintenance costs, if not below. We have a trip to TX planned for Xmas to my in-laws. I have a trip to VWL planned over Prez Week with just our 2 girls because DH doesn't have the vacation days. We are ALL going on an 11 day cruise in April over Easter Break. AND I have a "just in case" reservation at BWV for late August. DH doesn't have the vacation days. Although, he has the option of taking unpaid days, IF NECESSARY. He says he has some deadlines to meet - not sure how much willl be completed by 11/10/06. So, taking Mon-Wed off is iffy. We will not be taking the kids (School) so will have to leave them with my parents who are currently in Miami until 11/8/06. I, myself, have a lot of work in the office. But, hey, am always up for another trip!!! But my boss (family) may not be as happy about me taking off especially since my folks get the kids too. The airfare would be $245/rt pp. So, 4 nights for the 2 of us would cost us $ approx. $700 NOT including food. Which I think is a GREAT deal for HV at Atlantis, except that my vacation budget has been blown a long time ago. Lol! (Although we CAN afford it) It will be "tough" for both of us to get away. What would you do in MY situation? I would like to let DH's co-worker know yay or nay ASAP. I'm sure his cancelling is last minute and I don't know what the cancellation policy for his timeshare is but I'm sure he needs time to offer it to someone esle if he gets penalized for cancelling directly.
