Amidst all the different pros/cons of the Marriott Vacation Club membership ("time shares" and "destination points"), my wife and I are looking forward to our planned trips in 2019.
We begin with six nights at the Hilton Head Island, S.C. Grande Ocean (ocean front villa) this month, when our oldest daughter (age 55) and one of her walking friends, will join us. The Grande Ocean is perhaps the signature villa on H.H., where there are six other villa complexes, all with own individual features.
This complex, just outside Sea Pines Plantation, affords excellent opportunities for beach walking, bike riding and hiking on protected trails throughout the island; indoor, heated swimming pool; exercise room overlooking the beach and multiple nearby restaurants, for which Hilton Head is well known.
By the way, Hilton Head Island has again been voted, "Best Island in the U.S." -
Then, in late May, we're returning to another favorite MVC - Ocean Watch at North Myrtle Beach, S.C. - for four nights.
Lastly, we're headed to California in late September for five nights at the Newport Beach MVC, a new experience there for us; therefore, no photos to post yet. However, we've got neighbors who have stayed here on several occasions and highly recommend this facility as well.
We've scheduled these trips on a minimal number of "Destination Points", having been members since 2012.
