    Am I correct in stating there is no difference in owning a Napili vs Lahaina Tower float unit?

    Pretty much. We own 3 weeks deeded Napili, but Lahaina/Napili towers are considered the same resort so you could be in either tower.

    Of course you can request whichever tower you might prefer.

    If you are looking at "Island View" that will be Napili tower as there is no "Island" view designation in Lahaina tower. Napili only has either Oceanfront or Island views (wait, are there are handful of villas on the low floors with the angled view toward Molokai tower that are considered Ocean View???). Lahaina tower offers Ocean Front, Ocean View, Pool/Garden and Mountain views??? Someone that owns and stays in Lahaina correct me on those views, please. :D

    Joe, that is correct but about 65% of the floats are in Napili, if that matters to you.

    Best,

    Greg, somewhat of a sidebar question...but for each tower, room control would have three independent, mutually exclusive groups, within which they begin assignment priority, correct? (Applies to old buildings also, other than fixed.)

    Fixed Week Owners - Non-Assignable (Excludes original fixed weeks now owned by Marriott and in the Points Trust acquired through buy-back, foreclosure, etc.)

    Floating Weeks - Destination Points Only (Trust Weeks and MOC weeks trading in for points)
    - Does Room Control differentiate priority between MOC Owners reserving back in vs non-MOC weeks DP owners?; or is initial priority the confirmation date for all DP reservations)

    Floating Weeks - Weeks Owners
    - Room assignment of MOC Owners by confirmation date, then Marriott Reward Status, then II trades?)

    Ralph,

    I agree with the three pools - Fixed/Float/Points but do not know how they assign rooms between floating week owners and owners using points.

    It’s a little challenging to be confident in a high floor float/Point reservation in either Napili/Lahaina because there were so many fixed weeks sold - but there are many quality views.

    I miss Maui...wish I was there now...

    Best,

    Greg

    Me too but will be there very soon. :) I hope that the weather is better than here (Puerto Vallarta, MX). It is hot and muggy and no blue skies hardly.

    Thanks Gregg, I didn't know of the percentages but just wanted to make sure an OF front could be in either. It really doesn't matter to me so I'm hoping a deal I'm working on goes through and I'll have my second OF float in the new towers and 10th overall, 5 being EOY.

    So.... question..... Can 3 bedroom villas in Napili/Lahaina towers be locked off? Or no? Seems I have heard both ways. o_O

    There is no difference if you have an oceanfront unit...you could be assigned either tower. However, if you have another view designation you are restricted to a single tower. This is because all ocean view and mountain/garden view units are in Lahaina Tower and all island view units are in Napili Tower.

    Those angled villas you refer to should in my opinion be classified as ocean view, but they are actually ocean front. They are very nice views but nothing like the true ocean front views so so we always specify that we do not want one of them.[/QUOTE]

    I agree --- The 01 rooms in the Napili Towers are much more like an OV than OF and I would also request to not be in 01.

    Best,

    Greg
