RESORT OPERATIONS – COVID-19 VIRUS UPDATE

We are closely monitoring the quickly changing Novel Corona Virus / COVID-19 situation and
the impact to our Resort Operations. We are complying with guidance issued by Health
Canada as well as local public health authorities, and responding to actions taken by the
Province of Ontario and local officials as well as conditions in the surrounding community.
As a result, we have Closed Carriage Hills Resort effective Sunday March 22nd and are not
accepting any reservations through to April 30th. This may change with the evolving Novel
Corona Virus / COVID-19 situation.
Our housekeeping and maintenance staff have completed cleaning all departed rooms as well
as attended to any maintenance deficiencies in our rooms. We have taken all available
measures to conserve energy in the rooms, turned off pool and hot tub heaters and
suspended services such as satellite TV and reduced the frequency of waste collection in
order to save the association money.
The health and safety of our owners, guests, and associates is our top priority. We continue
to operate the resort on a skeleton staff for asset protection and security while practicing
physical and social distancing as recommended.
While we are disappointed that we will not be able to host you at the resort at this time, we
appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure the health and safety of our owners,
guests, and associates, and help prevent the spread of illness.
We look forward to welcoming you back for a future vacation.

Esa Paltanen, General Manager – Carriage Hills & Carriage Ridge Resorts


IMPORTANT OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Dear Valued Owner,

As we continue to navigate guidance from local, state and federal public health authorities as well as restrictions being issued by local and state officials, it is important that we keep you updated on how your travel plans and vacation planning services may be impacted. Your health and safety, and that of our associates, is our top priority.

Your Resorts

In support of the efforts of public officials and social distancing efforts, we are implementing a number of changes to our resort operations.

  • Effective immediately and through March 31, 2020, we are unable to accommodate new requests for reservations at all Club Wyndham, WorldMark by Wyndham, Shell Vacations Club, and Margaritaville Vacation Club by Wyndham resorts.
  • At this time, we are asking all owners with upcoming reservations through March 31, 2020, to consider cancelling their stays. With enhanced restrictions in place, we will be unable to provide you the vacation experience you expect when visiting one of our resorts.
  • In accordance with guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that limits gatherings of people, beginning March 17, 2020, and across all resorts, food and beverage operations, amenities such as pools, hot tubs, saunas, fitness centers, business centers, activities rooms, etc. will be closed. Any gatherings will be cancelled. Grocery and food delivery will be restricted or not allowed.
  • A smaller number of resorts will be restricted from allowing owner check-ins, effective March 20, 2020. This includes all resorts in the following locations: Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, New York, Utah (Park City and Park City Miner’s Club), Orlando, Las Vegas, Anaheim, San Francisco, Wisconsin, Atlantic City, and Maryland. We will make every effort to contact owners with reservations at these locations to notify them that their reservations will be cancelled with vacation points / credits refunded automatically. While owners who have already checked in to a resort may be able to remain through the date of their scheduled departure, they should strongly consider shortening their stays as movement in and around the resort will be restricted. In some municipalities, you will be restricted to your suite. Depending on how this situation evolves, we may have to close the resort at any point and require immediate departures.

This is a fluid situation with local, state, and federal jurisdictions issuing guidance and/or restrictions continuously. Our resorts will fully comply with guidance as it is updated.

Your Vacation Planning Touch Points

While we always strive to provide exceptional service, please be aware that we are experiencing higher than normal call volumes so your hold time could be longer than normal. Your owner website is the best way to update your vacation plans. As a reminder, we have adjusted our cancellation policy to reflect additional flexibility and you may cancel your reservation with an arrival date prior to May 15, 2020, without penalty. Within 72 hours, the full amount of points / credits used for the reservation will be added back into your account and the reservation transaction will be restored.

We understand this situation has impacted your ability to maximize your vacations so we are reviewing alternative options to use your points / credits. Stay tuned for more information.

We are fully committed to implementing health and safety measures to protect our owners, guests and associates. We recognize some of these measures may be an inconvenience and we sincerely appreciate your patience during this time. Thank you for being a valued member of our Wyndham Destinations family and we look forward to welcoming you back for a future vacation.

Sincerely,

Geoff Richards

Chief Operating Officer, Wyndham Vacation Clubs

We have a number of owners that would like to offer you the weeks they own at Carriage Hills.

What does Vacation Ownership offer?

Vacation ownership provides an opportunity to see the world and stay in beautiful resorts that usually offer condo type accommodation.

Timeshare unit sizes vary from studios to four bedrooms, allowing plenty of room for families.Hotel accommodations do not offer the comforts of home that timeshares offer like living, dining, kitchen and laundry amenities that make your vacation more convenient and affordable.

Carriage Hills units are particularly appealing because we have what is called a lock out unit,you can book the studio for a week and the one bedroom for a week or book the unit as a 2 bedroom for a week.  We have GOLD status in the Wyndham system that gives us good trading power when exchanging with other resorts.

Why, do people want to sell their timeshare?

There are a variety of reasons why people may wish to sell their timeshare. Many of our owners bought their timeshare in the 1990’s or early 2000’s and their life circumstances have changed.

  • Retired and now living on a fixed income
  • No longer able to travel due to health or age
  • Spouse passed away and they do not want to travel alone
  • Other financial obligations
