What is a Timeshare:
A Timeshare offers people the
opportunity to purchase time at fully furnished vacation accommodations -
usually in weekly increments - for a fraction of the cost of full vacation
home ownership. These timeshare owners can do what they want with their
vacation property, even rent it out. This is the basis behind Vacation Timeshare
and Rentals, LLC. We serve as the medium for vacation travelers and
timeshare owners. When a timeshare owner decides that they would like
to rent or sale their accommodation, they simply
sell or rent their timeshare on
our website. Interested travelers then
locate a timeshare and
contact the timeshare owner to negotiate a price or to receive
For a one-time purchase price and an
annual maintenance fee, timeshare purchasers own their vacations forever, or
for a predetermined number of years, depending upon the purchase agreement
of the timeshare.
Therefore, they can choose to either use this vacation time or rent it out
for someone else to use.
A timeshare can take a variety of
forms. The most common type of timeshare is a resort condominium (which can
range from a studio with a partial kitchen, all the way up to a five-bedroom
unit with a full kitchen and luxury amenities). Lock-offs are another unit
option. They are unique because they can be separated into smaller
components by locking a door. Other less-common timeshare accommodations
include hotel rooms, houseboats, and even motor homes.
Timeshare owners and renters
experience luxurious resort accommodations that are rarely found in
conventional hotel/motel rooms, but for a fraction of the cost. This
is why timesharing is the fastest-growing segment of the global travel and
tourism industry in the world today!
