Owners may bring well-behaved pets up to 55 pounds upon submitting a Pet Cleaning Fee of $175.00 when occupying the full two bedroom villa .

Types of Usage
The 2-bedroom villa is configured as a “lockoff”. Similar to two adjacent hotel rooms that have a door between that, when opened, creates a 2-room suite, the Four Seasons villa is two self-contained living units, one a full 1-bedroom condominium and the other a studio. As an alternative to using your ownership for 7 nights each year in the full 2-bedroom villa, the "lockoff" feature provides the option of vacationing for two weeks each year, one week in a 1-bedroom condominium with king bedroom, full kitchen, laundry room, and 2 baths, and a second week in the Studio villa with king bed, en suite bath, private patio or balcony and kitchenette.
Owners may reserve the full 2-bedroom villa for two separate stays, one a 3-night stay checking in on a Friday and checking out on Monday; the other a 4-night stay checking in on a Monday and checking out on Friday. Split-week use is available only with the full 2-bedroom villa; in other words, you cannot split and occupy a studio or 1-bedroom unit for partial weeks, only the 2-bedroom villa.
Within the Platinum season, a limited number of units were sold as “fixed weeks”. A fixed-week ownership entitles the owner to use a specific week every year without calling to make reservations. Fixed-week owners may “float” their week and reserve any other week within their owned season on the same basis as floating-week owners, but owning a fixed week guarantees availability of a specific week every year unless you choose to change the dates.
Fixed weeks require a higher initial investment but are an excellent option for owners who wish to vacation for just one or two weeks each year during peak season with total assurance that their desired week is guaranteed to be available.
The 2020 annual maintenance fees, regardless of the season of ownership, are $2,418.20, per interval week owned. Annual maintenance fees include property taxes, insurance coverage, maintenance and operation of the villas, common areas and amenities as well as daily housekeeping services and resort staff. A portion of the annual maintenance fee is also allocated to capital reserves for future required major repairs and refurbishing.
Through an extensive capital reserve study, the resort has determined the cash requirements to provide for future major repairs and replacement of furniture, fixtures and equipment for the villas and the common amenities; an annual contribution to capital reserves assures that the resort will continue to be well maintained, and updated as needed, without requiring large special assessments.
