      Hi,Can anyone tell me what my chances are of booking Maui Ocean Club (new towers) for two weeks in June 2015 if I use Trust Points and call exactly 12 months out?  I'd rather use my own points and then rent a few more from someone so that I can make the reservation myself.  If there's a chance that I won't be able to get the reservation at 12 months out though, I suppose the alternative is that I find a Premier owner who could book for me at 13 months out.....that just feels more risky though as there's really nothing that would stop them from canceling my reservation once they have my money.If there's another way to do this to remove the risk, I'd love to learn about that as well.  E.G., can a premier owner make me a reservation and transfer it to me so that only I could change/cancel?Thanks for the help!

      I have only made one reservation at MOC Lahaina Tower Ocean Front and that was back in December 2010 for use in April 2011.  I did a 13 day reservation.  There was a slight hiccup but we got it worked out with Customer Advocacy and the use of a BBB Complaint.  But this was at the beginning of the DC program.  My guess is that you would get it if you are not too picky on view. i.e Garden/Island View.  However, we were on the 2nd Floor of the Lahaina Building, which wasn't bad, but it would have been even more awesome had we been a little higher up.Another thing you could do is try and work out an exchange with a well known member that happens to own in Maui but I'll let that person out themselves if they're interested in this.  The trust currently has over 7 Million Points in the new Towers. and my guess is that is about 100+ weeks depending on view category.  If you include owners that would exchange their own weeks, that increases your odds.  I wouldn't worry about it.  i think you can do it.

      Maui Ocean Club should have availability, but it is the toughest to reserve (that I have seen).  If you are willing to accept different view categories, than I think you will definitely be able to find space.  However, if you are committed to an Ocean-Front view, than I think you have some risk of it not being available at 12 months out, because a lot of those weeks are being broken by Premier Plus who are adding on to an existing reservation.I've watched MOC 2BR OF availability (new towers) and think that, during summer, it may be tough to get at 12 months out.  Other view categories were available.And to answer your other question -- no, one member can't transfer the reservation to another member.  I made a ressie for Dioxide to Kauai Lagoons in Nov 2013 to park the space, and then we called and tried to have the exact ressie transferred.  They wouldn't do it, but they did find a new week available for him, and then canceled my reservation.Good luck!Greg
