What is Vacation
Simply put, it is your
ability to own a luxury, fully furnished resort condominium
for a week or more every year. Your resort
condominium is yours to use, rent, sell or exchange and can
be passed on to your heirs through your estate.
Pinestead Reef is affiliated with
Condominiums International (RCI)
which offers you the opportunity to exchange your time at
Pinestead Reef for one of more than 4,000 other
affiliated resorts around the world. Through RCI you are
also eligible to utilize their travel services, providing
members with incredible travel discounts.
Innovation at Pinestead Reef
Pinestead Reef has been a timeshare resort since 1979. The
resort is owned and operated by the Pinestead Reef Owner's Association, which consists
of all the individual timeshare owners at the resort, and is managed and operated by a
nine member, owner-elected Board of Directors. Unlike many
resorts, there is no
developer/owner associated with Pinestead Reef. The Owner's Association makes all the operating decisions,
meaning the owners, collectively, have full control of the resort and
Just like home, Pinestead Reef has
financial obligations. Each owner pays their share of the overall
annual operating expenses in the form of an annual maintenance fee.
The annual fee is all-inclusive, meaning there are no additional billings for
property taxes, etc., like at some resorts. Over the past twenty-five years, the annual
maintenance fee has increased at an
average annual rate of
only 1.9% per
year. From time to time, on the recommendation
of the Board of Directors, a special assessment may be required to
undertake and complete major capital improvement projects. Special assessments must be voted on and approved by a
majority vote of
the Owner's Association members! Any future special assessments will
not be a surprise, and the individual timeshare owners can vote yes or no
Fixed Weeks vs. Flex Weeks:
There are two forms of ownership at Pinestead Reef: FIXED
time & FLEX time. With FIXED time you own a
specific week, starting on Sunday and ending the following Sunday.
This specific week will never change. Your options include using the week yourself, allowing friends or
relatives to use your week, exchanging your week
through RCI for time at another
resort, or renting the week out. With FLEX
time you have the exact same options as a fixed week. In addition, you have
the freedom to use your seven days in increments of time, ranging from
one night to seven nights at a time, subject to availability, during the flex "season." Click
here for more Flex Information.
Exchanging Your Week with RCI
An annual fee of $99
(discounted if you pay for multiple years) gains you membership with RCI.
Please note, you do not need to join RCI
to own at Pinestead Reef. With your membership you will have
access to over 4,000 affiliated resorts worldwide, listed in an
annual, full-color resort directory which will be mailed to you.
In addition to the annual RCI membership fee, each time you exchange
your week there is an exchange fee.

Reef, not your typical hotel or motel unit. Your membership also
