Annual maintenance fees are $2,721

There are 89 Oceanfront units, 42 Ocean view and 127 island view units for a total 267 units.

This is a Mandatory resort, so StarOption benefits do transfer to a Westin timeshare resale purchaser and you have the ability to book into other Starwood Vacation network resorts also.

The two bedroom ocean view and Island view units have a StarOption value of 148,100

All the two-bedroom oceanfront units have a valuation of 176,700. Staroptions


When you make reservations at your home resort you can make your reservation 12-8 months in advance and based on space availability you will get the type of view unit you own.

When you make reservations less than 8 months in advance your view is not guaranteed and that’s when you can stay there for partial weeks.

During the 12 to 8 months timeframe, your check-in is Friday, Saturday or Sunday and you stay for the entire week.

Less than 8 months in advance you can stay for partial weeks or since this is a Mandatory resort, StarOption benefits transfer and you have the ability to vacation at other Starwood Vacation villa resorts or bank your unused StarOptions for up to two years.

You can bank any unused StarOptions by July 1 of the allotted use year.

There is a $99 rollover and you can use it anytime during the following two years. Reservations for banked options can be made up to a maximum of 8 months in advance.

You can borrow StarOptions up to your annual StarOptions from the next Use Year in the amount to complete a reservation, within 8 months or less of your required arrival.

What is the difference between buying a resale vs retail Westin Ka’anapali timeshare?

Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas North is a Mandatory Resort

StarOption benefits do transfer.

The Interval International membership is available to a resale owner.

The right to convert your week into Star points (SPG) does not transfer to a resale purchaser. StarPoints can be used for hotel, airline tickets car rentals etc. This is the only benefit not available to a resale purchaser and is the only difference when purchasing Westin Ka’anapali resale.

I hope you have found this information helpful!
