We made the RedWeek Top 25 Timeshare Rental Resort for 2016
RedWeek.com, the leading timeshare rental and resale by-owner marketplace, has released its list of Top 25 Timeshare Rental Resorts for the ninth straight year. The Top 25 ranking is calculated using rental demand statistics from the site’s more than 2.2 million subscribers.
Marriott resorts typically dominate the list, and this year is no exception—the brand claimed 11 of the 25 total spots. Disney is the second most sought-after brand – with their timeshare resorts claiming 4 spots on the list, including the top position. When it comes to top locations, the most sought-after resorts are in Florida, Hawaii, and the Caribbean—primarily Aruba.
Surprises this year include the first-ever appearance of Wyndham’s Bonnet Creek Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. That appearance, along with the resurgence in popularity at The Galleon Resort in Key West, Florida, bumped two popular resorts off the list altogether: Kaanapali Beach Club and Orange Lake Resort’s West Village.
“The top 25 resorts offer fabulous rental vacation experiences for families that are difficult to match,” said Gary Prado, vice president of business development for RedWeek.com. “It’s the ultimate win-win: travelers get these amazing by-owner deals at top resorts, and timeshare owners get to rent their villas on RedWeek.com to cover their fees when they’re unable to use them.”
