I stumbled across VPE on th TUG web site. Very glad that I did because VPE did not come up when I Goggled and Binged “buying Marriott DC Points”.Anyway, I own at Canyon Villas in Phoenix, Newport Coast and Las Vegas Grand Chateau. Over all, I am a very happy camper. I have stayed once at each of the resorts that I own. I have traded into: Boston Custom House (GREAT location), Williamsburg, Orlando Royal Palms, Beach Place Towers Ft. Lauderdale (GREAT location) and Palm Desert Enclaves. I have used II to trade into Hyatt Pinion Point in Sedona and Westing Kierland Villas in Phoenix, both very nice resorts.
