    Did you work sales for Hyatt? You are killing me with the imagery! Haha. Just thinking of escaping the Houston heat in August for the cool refreshing ocean breeze while relaxing on the balcony with those views.

    *Laughing* No, I didn't work sales for Hyatt. If I did, I don't think I'd be able to live with myself. But I certainly do enjoy offering advice on Highlands Inn as I think it's one of the great spots in all the world to relax and enjoy the bountiful beauty of nature. And you're right: enjoying a dinner while watching the sunset at Pacific's Edge Restaurant just kind of rounds out the whole experience.

    You mentioned price per point. I have heard for HGVC $1 per point was fair. I know that it may vary a little but what do you think a good price per point would be for Hyatt?

    HGVC is a point system, so it's easier to make general, broad statements, such as $1 pr point (though there are some exceptions to the general rule). With Hyatt, because you are buying a combination of four things, it is much more difficult to make a general statement. What four things? 1) specific location, 2) specific unit, 3) specific date, 4) number of points. For example, at the Highlands Inn (specific location), an ocean view will go for more than a garden view (specific unit). A summer week may be more desirable to you because your kids are out of school, while a spring week may be more valuable to someone who likes watching the whales move north up the coast (specific date). Last, the easiest to gauge, number of points... a 2200 point unit is worth more than a 1400 point unit. Everyone is different, and what they value is different. There is a Key West Fantasy Fest week on EBay for what I would consider a crazy asking price, however, someone else may be happy dropping $33k for that week. Also on EBay is an Aspen week 7 one bedroom for nearly three times the price (it was, they lowered it a tad) of the Key West week... and I considered it. Why? Because for me (week 7 is a week most schools have off, so kids are out of school, and the skiing is still good on week 7, AND it's an amazing property) it checks a number of boxes which are important to me. In the end, I snapped out of it and decided my wife would kill me. Haha.

    *edit. There's a fifth. Maintenance fees. Piñon Point has the lowest maintenance fees per point. If you were looking solely for a trader, on going cost per point would be more important than the other things I listed.

    Has anyone stayed at Pinion Point? I am looking at a unit (1812) for sale. I got a hold of a map but have no point of reference. Looking for info on the view and surrounding area.

    I looked at that one too, and decided to pass because it's a ground floor unit, and those units have a lot of bad reviews. I bought a second floor unit instead.

    They are hard to find, but I recommend buying in Buildings 1-5 on either the 2nd or 3rd floor. The numbers would be 121 or 131 through 521 or 531, for example. Views from these locations are amazing.

    I was looking at HPP reviews on TripAdvisor recently and there was a negative comment about room 1811 which I assume is in the same building as 1812. There apparently was no view at all and the folks were moved to a better unit. They didn’t specify how poor the view was, just that they asked to move.

    We are in bldg. #6 second floor, it sits directly behind commons area/pool. Very nice view of entire valley, snoopy rock, and most important a short walk in the morning to wildflower bakery for coffee in the morning.

    Ditto on looking at 1812. I think, because of its poor location, if I were to go for it, it would be used solely as a trader... which goes against my "stay where you want to go" theory. To be interesting, it would have to go cheap, and I don't think it will because of everyone else thinking of using it as a trader. Also, if it were to go as inexpensively as I would like, I think it would be grabbed by Hyatt in ROFR.
