What is a Vacation Rental?
A timeshare is a vacation property that several people buy interests in for use during specified times of the year. When a timeshare owner can’t use their designated weeks, ResorTime.com steps in to rent the property for them. This is why prices offered through ResorTime.com are great value as they are able to offer the benefits of luxury timeshares to the general public without the big investment or having to sit through those pesky presentations.
Two of our Superoos recently stayed at Sedona Summit and Scottsdale Villa Mirage, both members of the ResorTime.com portfolio of timeshare resorts, resort condos and beach homes that fit any size travel group.
You’ll LOVE the Benefits of a Vacation Rental
Sharing a hotel room with kids usually means that life stops the second they go to bed. There’s total silence, reading only by dim light and tiptoeing to the bathroom in fear if you need to go. Should you toss and turn in the night or let alone cough, junior might wake up ready to party at an unsavory hour causing everyone to feel more tired than necessary the following day. These issues are eliminated by renting a timeshare condo, which typically has a separate living space from the bedroom.
There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep and play comfortably. The baby could nap without being disturbed by older siblings. Usually, at hotels, baby’s nap time is quiet time. With the space here, the older kids were free to play how they wished.

We were greeted with smiles and great hospitality. Activities were suggested for our family and assistance provided over the phone whenever required. I felt like staying at a time share property had a different type of atmosphere, there was a greater sense of community and it seemed like many people staying there were there to relax and not hustle around town. This was a nice change from my normal vacation experiences.
