Vacation ownership now an even greater value

http://blog.kahanabeach.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Kahana-Beach-Maui-Hawaii-01.png

An increase in lodging rates in 2015 – up more than 18 percent over the previous year owing to a rise in travel frequency – now more than ever underscores the value of vacation ownership. Consistency of cost is a timeshare hallmark, and while hotel room pricing rose to an average of $102.64 per night in 2015 from $86.55 in 2014, your vacation club remained unaffected by market trends and subsequent supply and demand economics.
