I bet that headline caught your attention!
After many happy years of timeshare ownership, which we changed in 2013 to the fractional ownership of two weeks at Club La Costa (CLC)s Paradise, we have decided on more change. Ann and I are no longer able to make the long journeys to CLC resorts in Europe and the two CLC resorts in Florida are too close to Walt Disney’s world for our comfort, so it is time to part company with our ownership – which means you could acquire our ‘fraction’. This fraction expires on 31 December 2031, whereupon the units will be sold by CLC and depending on the price, money will be returned to the owners. A profit may be possible!
No, this is not one of those buy-a-timeshare scams which are so prevalent. CLC is a member of the Resort Development Organisation (RDO) which is the trade organisation for ethical and honest developments. Three resale companies are members of RDO and we have listed with Travel and Leisure Group in Sudbury, Suffolk, England.
The details of our unit are here. We haven’t actually been to this unit; the one time Mark was in Tenerife, in February 2016, he stayed in another unit. Two of his pictures are in ‘Owners Pictures’ at the foot of the listing. The pictures for the generic listing of Paradise are typical of the unit Mark stayed in for a week.
Ann and I have used the points system to travel to many places as well as stay at the original resort in Fuengirola. Through RCI and later Interval International, we exchanged with resorts in Fairmont Hot Springs and Canmore in western Canada, and three resorts in Ontario. As members of CLC we could go to any of its resorts – In Grand Canary, the Costa del Sol, Austria and Duchally in Scotland, five kilometres from golf at Gleneagles. We gave the gift of a week to two young couples who stayed in New York and near tennis and horses in California. The possibilities are ever-increasing as CLC expands its horizons.
