2021 Presidents Message

Greetings All!

We wish you all a happy and healthy 2021.

2020 was a tough year for all of us. We were challenged as never before. Ultimately, our struggles made us better, our efforts made us stronger. Our Leaders, Managers, and Staff chose the Hospitality Industry because we love helping visitors to enjoy their vacations.

While 2020 was a difficult year, we overcame many challenges and are proud to announce:

• No Maintenance Fee Increase

• Winner of the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for being in the top 10% of all TripAdvisor Resorts and Hotels worldwide. Over the last 3 years, we improved our rank from 43rd to 8th.

• Newly Upgraded Wi-Fi and Cable Service for 2021.

• New Owner Rewards (see below)

• New Healthy Stay and Healthy Play programs instituted for your health and safety.

Reminder

Please forgive the reminder but every year we are criticized for not sending enough reminders that maintenance fee payments are due on December 31 and $25.00 late fees are assessed on January 16th. If you have not already paid, please do so HERE.

Submitting reservation requests early is the best way to ensure your first choice dates will be confirmed. If you have not already submitted your request, please do so HERE.

Owners who are not able to use their usage this year are welcome to gift it to someone else, deposit it with an exchange provider for use in the future, or to donate it to charity. Each of these options requires a reservation be confirmed first.

Are you ready to end your ownership?? Don’t fall for a “timeshare relief” scam. We offer those companies the exact same Wind Down Program we offer any owner who contacts us directly.

Owners needing the breakdown of maintenance fees, reserve funding, and property taxes for their income tax returns will find the breakout below on this page.

We wish everyone a healthy and safe year!

Warmest Regards

Jeff Weinland

Notice of Potential Scam!

Fellow Owners,

Be Alert!

We have gotten reports from owners that they have been contacted by somebody claiming to be with “Festiva” (which is probably not accurate) which “owns the Resort” (which is definitely not accurate). This person is offering to sell “Rental Protection” to our fellow owners. Owners are asked to pay this person $1,195. In return for that payment, the owners’ week as well as two additional “getaway weeks” will allegedly be rented in the owners’ name. Supposedly, the proceeds from the rental of the 3 weeks (totaling $13,000) will then be paid to the owner.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If we could turn a maintenance fee plus $1,195 into $13,000 we’d all be rich.

You own the Vacation Villas at FantasyWorld Resort, not Festiva nor any other developer. We do not believe the people contacting our owners with this offer are actually associated with Festiva. We don’t know who they are. We don’t know anything about “getaway weeks,” nobody gets 3 weeks for 1 maintenance fee. These people do not represent us. We did not sell or give anybody your phone numbers.

There are lots of scams out there.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

Warmest Regards

Jeff Weinland, President

What All Owners Should Know About Reservations

  1. All reservations are confirmed on a first come / first served basis.
  2. The timeshare owns 205 townhomes.
  3. The maintenance fee associated with the owner usage must be paid before a reservation can be confirmed.
  4. Owners may pay an amount equal to the prior years maintenance fee if they want to confirm a reservation before the amount of the maintenance fee is established for the year (late summer or early fall; at the annual meeting). Any difference will be bill when the final amounts are established.
  5. The first 205 eligible deed owners who request any specific week are assigned a reservation.
  6. The 206th and all subsequent owners who request a week will be asked for an alternate selection.
  7. Owners are eligible if they are requesting a reservation within their season of ownership (owners of Platinum deeds requesting Platinum season weeks, or owners of Gold deeds requesting Gold season weeks).
  8. Owners may request  out-of-season  reservations 45-days prior to the planned arrival (Gold Owners pay a $175 upgrade fee; Platinum Owners paid more for their deeds and this benefit was included in the purchase price they paid). This rule is in place to ensure that all owners have the first chance to confirm a reservation during their season of ownership. This rule works well for reservations in January, February, and sometimes as late as April. Owners seeking out of season reservations later in the year are better served to use the services of an exchange company to trade into another season.
  9. Every owner needs a specific reservation at the resort to make use of their ownership.
  10. Owners wishing to exchange their reservation with an exchange provider, must first obtain a confirmed reservation from the resort and provide the details of the reservation to their exchange provider. The reservation is the medium of exchange providers. This applies to same year exchange and to owners wishing to bank their usage for a future year. Owners are encouraged to contact their exchange provider as soon as they know their plan is to deposit and they have their confirmation email.

Announcements!

Notice of Authorization
for Non Judicial Foreclosure

If a timeshare owner fails to make timely payments of timeshare plan common expenses, ad valorem taxes, or special assessments, an assessment lien against the timeshare owner’s timeshare interest may be foreclosed in accordance with a judicial foreclosure procedure or a trustee foreclosure procedure, either of which may result in the loss of the timeshare owner’s timeshare interest. If the managing entity initiates a trustee foreclosure procedure, the timeshare owner shall have the option to object pursuant to Florida law, and in such event the managing entity may thereafter proceed only by filing a judicial foreclosure action.
