Best Las Vegas Shows in 2015

My annual pick of the best of Las Vegas

I’ll start right off with the best shows in town. Still at #1 is a collection of the world’s best entertainment, Cirque du Soleil.

Kooza Cirque du Soleil

Kooza Cirque du Soleil

Las Vegas is home to Cirque du Soleil, which is currently performing 8 different shows. Each show a magnificent creation in and of itself, deserves the highest accolades a patron could want.

Carrot Top – This show is a mixture of stand up comedy and prop comedy – curly red haired Carrot Top uses unusual props and makes fun of himself, of the human nature and of the American culture among other subjects.

Blue Man GroupBlue Man Group – 3 bald and blue men perform visually stunning acts that are a mix of comedy, rock music and modern technology. If that doesn’t impress you, you should know that this show is simply hilarious, energetic and very different from everything else you’ve ever seen. The Blue Man Group performs truly one of the most spectacular, top shows in Las Vegas!

Terry Fator is a ventriloquist. He uses various puppets in his show and does celebrity impressions. It’s simply amazing how Terry Fator can use various voices, and sing even better than some “originals”. He does perfect impressions of the famous performers – from Lady Gaga to Frank Sinatra.

Absinthe is the ultimate variety show for adults featuring circus acts, comedy and sexy topless girls. The best part of Absinthe is that the action takes place very close to the audience – it seems you can stretch your hand and touch the performers.

Thunder From Down Under is a true delight! The show features all Australian male dancers, and will make a great girls night out or a bachelorette party!

Jersey Boys is a musical abut the highly popular rock and pop group Four Seasons – how the unknown guys from New Jersey met, what they’ve been through to become the legendary band.

Divas Las Vegas With Frank Moreno is one of the funniest best Las Vegas shows involving all-male impersonators of female artists.

Vegas! The Show recreates important moments from the history of Las Vegas through musical performances. The show takes you back in time into the 50’s and features impersonations of the top performers who helped shape Las Vegas – Elvis Presley, Rat Pack, Tina Turner and others.

Penn and Teller is an amazing show where the “magicians” actually reveal some of their “secrets”, but when you expect it the least they will amaze you with a completely different trick!

Le Reve is amazingly beautiful circus type of show, with acrobatics, gymnastics, incredible costumes and visual effects.

So, where do you stay on this Las Vegas entertainment Mecca? In a luxury resort timeshare of course! And now the best of the luxury timeshare resorts in Las Vegas:

How to sell your timeshare. Where to buy a timeshare.

Combining A Spa Retreat With Timeshare

Marriott Cypress Harbour Timeshare Sold

Marriott Cypress Harbour Timeshare Sold!

Timeshare resorts are on the fast track to include health and wellness programs that include fitness programs, spa services, weight-loss regimens and other services to create a healthy vacation experience for timeshare owners.

Those timeshare resorts that aren’t on that fast track will get left behind. Timeshare travelers are growing more and more interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle while on vacation and see their timeshare as a place to enhance that experience.

Marriott timeshare resorts, for example, have led the way with award winning spas and wellness centers that include yoga classes, Tai Chi, water aerobics, and more. Marriott’s Desert Springs Villas is one example of how it’s done right.  Here’s a quote from a Marriott exec:  “It makes good business sense to offer wellness programs at our resorts, for they complement the active lifestyles of our owners and guests,” said Ed Kinney, vice president, corporate affairs and communications, Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “Since 1984, we’ve been committed to offering relevant activities for all ages that balance our owners’ desires for relaxation and fun with staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle during their vacation.”

Or consider Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club Timeshares:  Enjoy tropical paradise at this Five Star resort situated along miles of white sand and the blue waters of the Caribbean. Accommodations feature full kitchen, living and dining areas, private patio or balcony and washer/dryer. In addition to beach activities, amenities include swimming pool with slide, lazy river, whirlpool, onsite shopping, restaurant, tennis, fitness center, full service spa and more.

Marriott Towel RecyclingIn addition to the above, Marriott Timeshare Resorts also lead the way in making their resorts more friendly to the environment.  On Bill Marriott’s blog, Marriott On The Move, he wrote, “Sustainability is an important part of our global expansion and our commitment to grow responsibly.  This is why we’re supporting rainforest preservation in the Amazon and access to fresh water in China.  At the same time, our hotels around the world are taking steps to be more environmentally-friendly.  It’s a long journey, and we still have much work ahead, but I think we’re on the right track. ”  See more

Marriott Towel Recycling3In fact, I recently stayed at a Marriott resort and noticed this hanging in the master bath:

It reads: “Be inspired. Support our environment efforts by reusing your towels. Please hang them to air dry. Or leave them elsewhere and we will be happy to replace your towels with freshly laundered ones.”

Sell My Timeshare - Is Now The Right Time?

Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge

Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge

The answer to the question of “Is now the best time to sell my timeshare?” is best answered by another question “Do you want to keep paying maintenance fees for a timeshare you never use?”.  If the answer to that question is “YES” then now is the time to get your timeshare on the market for sale and get it done once and for all.

Some timeshare owners get stuck in neutral in their decision to sell their timeshare. What will it cost? What will it sell for? Is the economy right?

There is a buyer for every timeshare. You bought it and others wanted to buy but walked away. Most still like the idea of timesharing but did not want to pay a retail price.

In overdeveloped areas like Orlando/Kissimmee there are far more timeshare units available than the demand for them. Just as it is with any commodity for example, the more supply and less demand there is for something the less the buyer will have to pay.

Other areas of the country are not as over developed. Take the western coast of Florida for example. Few new resorts have been built there, the timeshare owners seldom want to part with their timeshare in those locations and the demand is very high.

Yes the demand for vacation condos like timeshares is strong in Orlando but the supply is out of control huge! And more timeshare developments are breaking ground.

The best way to go about buying a timeshare in a market like this is to use a timeshare resale specialist that has a network of other professionals like brokers, title companies, escrow, attorneys, and so on. Plus make sure they have a track record of closing deals on timeshare sales. Some timeshare sales are tricky and take special expertise to get the job done. Ask a lot of questions. A timeshare resale pro will be happy to tell you about the timeshares they have sold, their most recent sale, and what the prospects are for finding you just what you want.

Sedona with SnowSo whether you are searching for a high end Marriott, Westin, or other timeshare resort or just a small town “lazy river” kind of place there are plenty of timeshare owners ready to sell you their timeshare at a huge discount!

There is a buyer for every timeshare. You bought it and others wanted to buy but walked away. Most still like the idea of timesharing but did not want to pay a retail price.

No matter what the economy is doing there will always be people ready to spend money on luxury items like boats, sports cars, and luxury vacation condos. Timeshares fit the bill for those who do not want to pay for and maintain a second home, a lake house, or other type of whole ownership.

Now is the best time to sell your timeshare. If you don’t get the process started now when will you do it?

Vacation Travel Deals for Retirees

Marriott Shadow Ridge

As baby boomers begin entering the typical retirement phase of life, thoughts turn to leisure time, travel, and sticking to a budget. Even yesterdays San Francisco Chronicle recommends finding travel discounts by using timeshares as part of a cost cutting plan:

“Timeshares are generally not a great real estate investment, but they can be a good investment in your travel expenses, if you consider their value in relation to what you will realistically spend renting vacation homes, or at hotels and resorts for the next several years. If you travel frequently and know that you want to return to the same location repeatedly, you can save up to 67% on a timeshare by skipping the developer and buying through the timeshare resale market.

Bluegreen's Christmas Mountain

Bluegreen’s Christmas Mountain

Resale timeshares can often be found online through various sites, but there are brokers that handle them as well, to resolve concerns around legitimacy. Reputable sites like also include resale listings. The key to a successful timeshare is knowing that the location will be appealing in the long-term, both to you as the owner and to potential renters or buyers.”

The timeshares advertised for sale at generally come fully equipped from the sheets on the beds to silverware in the kitchen. They usually have one, two or three bedrooms and baths with kitchens, living areas, dining areas, washers & dryers, and some have whirlpools, fireplaces, balconies and high-tech connections for the internet, etc. Many resorts offer tennis courts, golf courses, restaurants saunas, and athletic facilities. Your timeshare can offer you and your family not only that dream vacation you’ve wanted for so long – but also, all the conveniences of home!
You also get the benefit of fabulous locations that are flexible through timeshare exchange programs. For example by owning a timeshare you could travel to many destinations like:

Really want to do that to your favorite charitable organization? There may be a way to donate your timeshare without creating a worse tangled mess than the one you are trying to escape.

Timeshare Developers Set To Grow In The Caribbean

Costa Linda Beach Resort Timeshare Aruba

Costa Linda Beach Resort Timeshare Aruba

All the elements are in place for the Caribbean to see a surge in timeshare sales and development. As the leading destination for US travel the Caribbean and their timeshare resorts are already experiencing greater sales than most.

One possible reason for that is the bad publicity coming from Mexico and the dangers the drug cartels have brought to the Mexico region. The Caribbean offers the same climate, quality resorts, and the perception of being a safer place to travel.

Recently the Jamaica Observer published a story that followed the study published by Interval International. It said “early one out of every four (23.2 per cent) of the US resident members interested in acquiring additional vacation time cite a preference to make a purchase at a resort located in the Caribbean.” (source)

Westin Kierland Villas Timeshare Resort For Sale

Westin Kierland Villas Timeshare Resort For Sale

St Kitts and St Marteen are already experiencing significant growth in tourism. Plus, there is room in the Caribbean for more development – resorts, unit weeks, travel, tourism, and money! Mexico’s loss in tourism is the Caribbean’s gain.

The Caribbean has long been a leader in timeshare resales. The top performing timeshares on the resales market there include:

Those timeshare top sellers are listed in order of most sales on the resale market. Those were not just inquiries but actual timeshares sold, closed, and the owner paid. Real data.

What does this mean to you if you own a timeshare in the Caribbean? It means that if and when you are ready to sell your timeshare there is a good buyers’ market for it. Timeshares in the Caribbean are gaining in popularity for many reasons as stated earlier.

Plus, more and more vacationers are understanding the value of owning their vacation as opposed to renting it. They can also buy their timeshare condo from an owner (like you) and not have to face the hype and pressure of the timeshare sales presentation. The timeshare sale can be negotiated over the phone, contracts can be faxed or emailed, the title company can complete the deal for you and all you have to do is go to your mailbox to get the closing check.

That is definitely good news for a timeshare owner – especially if their circumstances have changed such that they can no longer use their timeshare. If that is the case it is time to sell your timeshare.

No more reasons not to sell your timeshare!

Is Now The Time To Sell My Timeshare?

Have you ever heard of the Ben Franklin T? It is a tool Ben Franklin used in making decisions. Here’s how it goes: At the top of the page you’d write your question that needs an answer. Then you draw a T in the center of a piece of paper. On the left hand side of the T you write the word Pro/For and on the right side Con/Against. Next you begin to fill in all the aspects of the decision for/against on the corresponding sides.

Deciding to Sell Your Timeshare

Should You Sell Your Timeshare?

Some people also assign “weight” to each factor – depending on how important that factor is. At the end you have a pretty clear picture of how the decision should go.

Such is the case with selling your timeshare.

What are the reasons to keep your timeshare? Here are the most common ones: It may save you vacation dollars. More space. Less expensive than a vacation home. Access to multiple vacation destinations through exchange.

Ben Franklin Famous Quote

Ben Franklin Famous Quote

What are the reasons to sell your timeshare? Here are the most common ones:

No appreciation in value.

Expensive maintenance fees.

Unexpected assessment fees.

No longer use it.

Limited options.

Your money is tied up.

A feeling you were misled at the initial purchase.

Change in circumstances.

Familial changes.

Once you have made your T and listed the reasons for and against with weights assigned, the answer should be more clear. I have used the Ben Franklin T many times and have made the right decisions when doing so.

If you decide to sell your timeshare do your homework and do it right the first time. Don’t fall victim to non professional scams that will leave you even more sorry you bought a timeshare in the first place.

And once you decide, don’t look back. You made this decision based on your list of pro’s and con’s.

Ben Franklin would be proud.

Timeshare Deeds - When

DeedofTrustA service provided by is not something that’s flashy, lit up like Las Vegas’ neon lights, or commands the attention of media.

But when you need this service, it will be obvious how and why it is a good/great thing: getting timeshare deeds transferred.

It has been well said that not many things can separate you from your timeshare deed. Divorce and death are the most common two events that can require that kind of action.

Up until recently, and more difficult in some states than others, the process of transferring your timeshare deed to another party has been elusive, if not completely frustrating.

Quit Claim DeedTo speed this up, an online service for timeshare deeds from Nevada, Hawaii, California, and Florida has launched from the above website. “This website is published by Mark W. Bidwell. Mr. Bidwell markets timeshare and vacation title transfer services through websites, primarily“.

If you have never had the experience of trying to sever ties from a previous spouse, wrap up old business from a deceased relative, or just get rid of a timeshare, you may not appreciate how convenient and urgently needed this service can be. I have seen such types of timeshare transfers drag on for months on end with nothing but more questions in the future.

It’s kind of like graduating from the old days of having a dentist pull a tooth while you writhe in pain vs painless tooth extraction. Yes, it is that much different.

So give thanks all timeshare owners. For you too may some day need to shed your beloved family timeshare so you can turn the page.

Just takin’ care of business.

Branson's Timeshare Hit Parade

Pictures of Wyndham Branson at The Meadows - Resort Photos

Wyndham Branson at The Meadows

In and around Branson timeshare developers have been building terrific timeshare resorts for quite some time.

The number one best selling timeshare in Branson is the Wyndham Branson. Wyndham Branson (Falls or Meadows) is described this way on their homepage: “Located just four miles from the famous 76 strip, Wyndham Branson at the Meadows is the perfect quiet and picturesque place for the whole family to unwind. This is a kid-friendly resort with many activities geared just for them like Water Olympics, birthday parties, teen rave nights and karaoke”. Their proximity to all the entertainment Branson offers is indeed a great selling point. They can offer both the convenience of location to a huge selection of shows and the quiet setting of a well laid out timeshare campus.

With the Wyndham points system, you will find up to 700,000 points available for individual purchase. Plus there are quite a few Wyndham points deals for over 200,000 points and some as few as 77,000 points.

Timeshare sales in Branson have always been consistently strong. But, these top ten timeshares have outperformed all the others when it comes to the timeshare resale market. This list was created from actual resales of owners’ timeshares. This information is good to know if you are thinking of buying OR selling a Branson timeshare. Like they say, information is power – and this is some good information.

The best selling timeshares in the Branson area are:

More about Wyndham timeshares:
Wyndham timeshare resorts encompasses some 185 Vacation Ownership Resorts in North America, Mexico, the South Pacific, and the Caribbean. Boasting over 900,000 members worldwide, they rightly claim to be the largest timeshare / vacation ownership company in the world.  Their brands include Shell Vacation Club, Club Wyndham, Worldmark by Wyndham, and Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific.  Wyndham offers points based timeshare ownership that affords their owners the flexibility to exchange within the huge family of timeshare resorts Wyndham owns and manages.
Wyndham Pahio Timeshare For Sale By Owner

Wyndham Pahio Timeshare For Sale

With over 900,000 timeshare points owners attributed to Wyndham, you can imagine that at any time many want to sell their timeshares. That brings a great opportunity to timeshare buyers who want to buy their timeshare on the secondary or resale market. Conservatively speaking, if only 5% of Wyndham’s timeshare owners wanted to sell, that would be 45,000 sets of Wyndham timeshare points for sale. That is a huge number! HUGE!
Thus the buyer’s market for Wyndham points has driven down the resale value of points to a fraction of the original cost. ARDA estimates the resales values to be around 25% to 50% off of retail. I’d say even better deals can be found – and with regularity. is the place to start the search for Wyndham points for sale.

Timeshare Values in Selling Timeshares

Rustic For Sale SignThe news headline of this article is what caught my attention: “How to Discover The Expected Resale Value of a Timeshare”. At the end I will give you a link to the article.

In this first of a three part series the writer says he’s making three points about the subject:

1) Understand What You Own

2) Search online for ads of comparable timeshares that are for sale

3)Request a comparative market analysis from a respected real estate broker specializing in timeshare and vacation resorts.

Old For Sale SignHis first point is the most relevant. When you get ready to sell your timeshare you really need to know what you own. Some folks think they own an annual use timeshare. But when they read their deed they discover they can use it only every other year. Or, sometimes you may be sitting at one resort when you sign the original paperwork but actually bought a timeshare in another state or country!  So, read the deed or your purchase agreement before you take the next step. Good advice.

In fact the Federal Trade Commission gives owners of timeshares a checklist to follow when preparing to sell their timeshare:

Selling a timeshare is a lot like selling any other piece of real estate. But you also should check with the resort to determine restrictions, limits, or fees that could affect your ability to resell or transfer ownership. Then, make sure that your paperwork is in order. You’ll need:

  • the name, address, and phone number of the resort
  • the deed and the contract or membership agreement
  • the financing agreement, if you’re still paying for the property
  • information to identify your interest or membership
  • the exchange company affiliation
  • the amount and due date of your maintenance fee
  • the amount of real estate taxes, if billed separately

I’m going to jump ahead to his third point. Where would a real estate broker find ANY information on sales (through a MLS) that have been closed on timeshares? You cannot request a comparative market analysis if there is no data to compare it to. I’ll get to that issue later when he publishes Part 3.

The first task at hand when selling your timeshare is to make sure you know what you have to sell.

But don’t worry, the next step will be challenging as well – Figuring out your asking price! - Timeshare Network Sales Solutions

Apparently the Hawaii tourism market has dropped this year so they have taken drastic price reduction measures to attract more people. Now would be a great time to rent a timeshare, find a discount airfare and Go To Hawaii!For example, you can find a five star resort with magnificent amenities, two bedrooms, totally furnished and with a brand name like Marriott or Westin for less than $1,000 a week.  That’s less than $150 a day for a condo – lots of room and loaded with quality and luxury. Some of the top timeshare resorts we have rented out in Hawaii include Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, Wyndham Waikiki Beach Walk, Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas, Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club, and more.

I’d say, go ahead and take the plunge: Go to Hawaii, rent a timeshare vacation condo, save a lot of money, and have the vacation of your life.

Wyndham Kona Hawaiian Resort Timeshare For Sale

Wyndham Kona Hawaiian Resort Timeshare For Sale

Here’s another option many consider when putting together the perfect and affordable Hawaii vacation: Timeshare.  With big resort names like Marriott, Sheraton, Westin, and others many years now into timeshare ownership development, the market has matured and has become one of the most affordable ways to vacation in style.The timeshare resort developers like Marriott and Starwood (Sheraton, Westin) spare little expense when putting together a luxury resort for both families and singles. Luxuriously appointed rooms, the newest technology, the best service and trained staff, and attention to detail have become the norm for timeshare resorts.

The best way to make that happen is to buy the timeshare through a timeshare resale broker.  Why? #1 Reason – Price. You can buy timeshares on the resale market for anywhere from 25% to 50% off the retail price or better. Plus you get the peace of mind that comes with working with a professional real estate person who holds a license in that business (VS attempting to buy through EBay type sites).

The timeshare option has become so popular in Hawaii that hotel construction has been virtually non existent on the islands for a few years now. Only timeshare resorts are being built. The timeshare lodging in Hawaii has been selling well and keeps a very high occupancy rate with high spending travelers.

Timeshares are here to stay in Hawaii. They are leading in profits, a quality product, and high customer satisfaction.

How To Get The Timeshare Exchange You Want From RCI

Cozumel Palace Timeshare Resort

Cozumel Palace Timeshare Resort

Ever hear of a timeshare exchange with a guarantee of getting what you want? The truth is that does not happen very often. The success that is. You will hear sales people tell you that you can exchange timeshare for any place and any time.

What they timeshare salesman did not tell you was that you have to be able to plan your vacation six months in advance, be flexible on each of your choices, and request different times to raise the likelihood of getting an actual exchange that works.

So who among us timeshare owners can predict three different weeks that we can get off work for a vacation?  Just what I thought. Just about nobody.

The best chance of getting what you want in a timeshare exchange through RCI or Interval International is to plan as far in advance as possible. Request your vacation time as soon as possible. It also means that if you want for example a ski vacation do not just request your favorite place like Park City. Spread your request over several areas like Park City, Breckenridge, and Lake Tahoe. And for each location request a different week on the calendar like weeks 6, 7, and 8. Those variables will greatly increase your chance of getting a week in exchange for what you banked.

If you value the timeshare you purchased and the maintenance fee you pay each year you owe it to yourself to get the benefit of owning a timeshare. So don’t let the week rot away in the RCI or II bank. They will be glad to rent out that week for themselves.

Work the system, get your timeshare exchange, and get the well deserved vacation you need!

However, if your inability to exchange your timeshare for what you want (and deserve!) has frustrated you to the boiling point there is a solution: Sell your timeshare. Maybe you’ve considered that option or even attempted to sell it yourself. But if you have continued to pay maintenance fees for a timeshare that you can never get, for a vacation you never take, or for good times you’ve paid for in advance but aren’t having any fun then sell the timeshare.

There is no mystery or secret to selling your timeshare. It is just a matter of getting the right help and setting the price so that a buyer finds it an attractive purchase. You will not have the advantage of a pressurized sales pitch but what you will have is negotiating help when you use a timeshare resale specialist.

That’s money in the bank. A real bank.

Here’s an update on a timeshare developer not often heard of in the news since they were gobbled up by mega capital investment firm Cerebus: Silverleaf Resorts.

Silverleaf Resorts – Timeshare – operates 13 resorts in Texas, Missouri, Massachusetts, Illinois, Georgia and Florida. They have over 113,000 owners of timeshare. And from the looks of it they will soon have more. The more financing and collecting capability they have the more timeshares they can sell. So the heat is on with Silverleaf. Not FOR Silverleaf, but for the sales force who have potential timeshare buyers sitting in front of them.

Cerebus has been in and out of owning everything from Pharmaceuticals to paper to government services, firearms, automotive, financial services and just about anything else you can imagine.

So what does this all mean? Taking a Silverleaf timeshare tour this summer? Be aware that the sales people have more financing behind them now and are ready to push for sales. Getting flipped to the manager. Being lured with all kinds of promises.

If you want to buy or sell your Silverleaf timeshare you need to consider how the timeshare resale market works. You need to use a Timeshare Resale Broker to facilitate a timeshare sale. They would not only facilitate the sale but work for you to negotiate deals, take care of the paperwork, and make certain the deal closes in a timely fashion. All under the protection of license, codes of ethics, and training.

Buying or selling a timeshare need not be a nightmare. Trust is the key. Use a timeshare resale broker and your worries will go away.
