Hawaii Timeshares in Demand on HOT 100 Timeshare List

Hawaii timeshares dominate SellMyTimeshareNow's annual Hot 100 list, claiming four of the top ten spots.

Dover, NH (May 21, 2008) --Hawaii timeshares confirm their strength as a vacation destination preference with a strong showing on the just released SellMyTimeshareNow Hot 100 list. The timeshare advertising and marketing company, a global leader in timeshare resales and timeshare rentals, publishes an annual list of the timeshare properties advertised by them that receive the greatest number of offers to buy or rent.

Many of the earliest timeshare resorts established in the U.S. were in Hawaii, so it is appropriate that today, nearly 40 years later, Hawaii still dominates the top spots on the SellMyTimeshareNow timeshare resale and timeshare rental Hot 100 list. In the top ten spots on the list, Hawaii timeshares claimed four: Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas in second place on the list; Diamond Resorts Ka'anapali Beach Club in fifth place; Marriott's Maui Ocean Club timeshares in sixth; and the Ko Olina Beach Club timeshares, new to the top ten list this year, claiming the tenth spot.

This year's Hot 100 list is based on a record number of offers to buy timeshare or rent timeshare, placed through the SellMyTimeshareNow website, with a total of 48,532 offers placed on the Top 100 properties in 2007. Overall, the list reveals consistency among the leaders at the top, with this year's top eight all appearing in last year's list. Notably, WorldMark by Wyndham, multi-destination timeshares have jumped from seventh, to claim the top spot at number one. Among WorldMark by Wyndham's more than 60 worldwide resorts are four in Hawaii: Kapaa Shore; Valley Isle in Lahaina; Kihei; and Kona in Kailua-Kona.

Hawaii timeshare's dominance of the list does not end in the top ten. Other Hawaii timeshares placing high on the list include: Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas North timeshares, ranked 21; the Sands of Kahana Vacation Club timeshares, ranked 24; Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Hilton Hawaii Village, ranked 29; and Marriott's OceanWatch Villas timeshares, ranked number 33.

Jason Tremblay, founder of SellMyTimeshareNow says, "With more than 5,400 timeshare resorts worldwide to choose from, it says a lot about how much vacationers love Hawaii, that over 27 percent of the timeshare resales and timeshare rentals on the top third of our list are located in Hawaii."
