Timeshare rentals are an economical way to spend a week in an exclusive resort without paying sky-high prices. Many timeshare owners who cannot or do not wish to take advantage of all of their designated timeshare usage time will rent out that vacation time share to other travelers who want to snap up a bargain. Getting a last-minute deal can be one of the best ways to get options for cheap time share condos, from owners who are unexpectedly unable to show up for their vacation, particularly if you’re not set on one destination and are willing to keep an eye on the lodging options in several.
Some of the most popular timeshare rentals are in tropical vacation spots such as Hawaii. In Oahu along popular Waikiki Beach, many of the condo and apartment rentals are housed in a timeshare resort that gives you access to the beach as well as club facilities such as fitness centers, pools, and more. Many of these timeshares are on properties owned by such big names as Wyndham, Hilton, and Marriott.
In less populated areas of Hawaii you will be able to find more spacious grounds for your vacation time share, and a timeshare resort will often have expansive gardens in addition to the beach. You may also be able to find cabins or villas if you would like a little more privacy for your week away. In Kauai, for instance, you can stay at a resort on the beach that is nestled within the lush rainforest, with views of the mountain peaks from your window. If you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay on a romantic vacation, such as a honeymoon, this is a unique and memorable option.
If your idea of a week away includes mountains and snow rather than beaches and sun, you may want to consider timeshare rentals in and around destinations like Lake Tahoe, California. This alpine lake is one of the most popular ski destinations in North America, and many condos and other rentals have beautiful views of one of the largest alpine lakes in the US. For summer vacations, the area is also popular for swimming, fishing, hiking, and bicycling. You can rent a vacation time share in towns such as South Lake Tahoe or in Truckee, a quaint railroad town near Lake Tahoe. Many of the rentals are located in a timeshare resort such as the Marriott Timber Lodge or the Lodge at Lake Tahoe. After a day on the slopes during your ski vacation, take advantage of the heated pools, spas, and fitness centers that many resorts have to offer, and enjoy a home-cooked meal created in your own timeshare kitchen.
For a destination a little off the beaten track, consider Belize for a combination of Caribbean tropical beauty with the historic Mayan culture of Central America. Rent a timeshare at a tropical resort on the popular island of Ambergris Caye, where you can go snorkeling and diving to your heart's content along the world's second-largest barrier reef. Your resort can provide guidance and travel arrangements for trips to the interior to see the Mayan ruins at Caracol. The entire island atmosphere is friendly, laid-back and relaxed, and easy to get around as English is the official language. Perfect for a honeymoon or a trip with friends, renting a timeshare in Belize is the gateway to an unforgettable adventure.
