So, up until now I’ve been looking at David’s as our potential DVC rental place. (I also have the name of a private owner who we can go through.)
But my wife and I have been watching various Vlogs, and now we have a total of four options:
- David’s DVC Request
- Private owner
- DVC Rental Store
- The Timeshare Store (mostly resale, but they do rentals as well)
There are other places I know. But now I’m wondering which is ultimately the best option. I’m not necessarily looking at price differences, since they are all pretty much the same. But I’m wondering which is most likely to have availability (at 11 months out)? Or will it matter?
I do like the DVC Rental Store has their PPP (Points Protection Plan), and that they will do an availability check without any deposit. The Private owner doesn’t require full payment up front. For David’s, you would have to pay for travel insurance separately, and they require a deposit (refundable if they can’t find what you want). Not sure about the Timeshare store.
I feel like where we want to rent (Boardwalk Villa 1 bedroom) and when (first week of December 2020) it will be a race, so I want to know up front which option to go with. Of course, I’m still in research phase since we can’t actually reserve anything for 11 more month.
