We’re staying on rented DVC points at AKL in late September this year. I was looking at adding on a single night to the front end of our stay to accommodate anticipated flight schedule and provide an opportunity to ride the skyliner at CBR but a standard room only becomes available with a 5 night minimum stay! Is this typical of moderate resorts? Can I expect to be able to book a standard room for a single night later in the year if I wait them out? POP is our other plan, I just found this quirk surprising!
Phone and ask.
Sometimes the algorithm they use prevents you booking online, but it may still be available. Also double check you didn’t have cookies that meant you were being shown a package deal instead of room only.
