We toured the homes for sale at Margaritaville at Hilton Head, SC. Really not impressed. Hope the resort is better.

It may be on our list for future, to augment a DVC stay, as we look for ways to extend our SnowBird trips.

Havenít been inside the resort but weíve been to Sunset Walk a few times. There are 3 decent restaurants Fordís, Caponeís and Yeomanís all have great food. On Saturdays they shut down the walking area and have a band playing.

I guess you could tell them that you are single, and the quoted price is for a family. Then see if they will include her as your family...

Haha, I tried similar once with a scam call saying I had won a vacation. They kept saying you and your girlfriend/wife can go and have the time of your life. I said wonderful, find me the girlfriend and I’ll be there gladly! Suddenly the line was disconnected...

Please stop with the sexist joking. It’s really inappropriate.

I recently started a thread about Stacy possibly discontinued on Disney Resort TV and a few of the comments made me think twice about an actress having to protect her reputation and legal contract with Disney to protect Disney Standards .
I also want to have respect for Mouseowners that I consider friends.

If you are ok being outside the bubble, it could well be a good option.
It sounds like you actually found a second home that was perfect for your needs. Lucky ducks! We would only be looking to rent, and only if I could convince DH to try an offsite property...
