OBBR OWNERS ONLY

I am an owner and interested in being in touch with other owners about OBBR issues and the possibility of forming an owners association as several other Time Shares on SXM have. Our "rights" have none of the protections typically found for timeshares in the USA.

I will be at OBBR till the end of Jan 2009. I "stumbled" across your reply. RW did not notify me there had been a reply to my posting. Give it another go.

We have been owners since 2000. We love the resort but would like to communicate with other owners. Have not been since 2007,but will return 3/28/09-4/4/09.
We are curious reguarding the condos that were built next to Busby's. How much beach do we have left?

The beach is still the same. But the Westin, or maybe the Radisson hotel is at the other end of the beach...
some big chain...and it looks like a prison.
Things in St. Martin are chaining...Just to much building/

I'd be happy to participate in an OBBR owners group. I have owned multiple weeks since 2000 and while I am pleased with the resort overall I was concerned with the new policy of selling fixed weeks and how that will impact those of us that own :floating" weeks. During our stay last year the timeshare sales people we trying to get owners to trade in their "floating" weeks for fixed weeks, with a considerable charge associated with the change!

In any event, having an owners group would be an excellent idea. Count me in.

I am currently at the resort. I am sorry to say I do not like what I have learned. The top floor of the new units are all to be sold as condos @ a million$. The remaining units will be sold as FIXED weeks
Studio 55K, 1BR 42K, 2BR (alock out) 55K. That is if you buy it the day of your "tour" if not he price is 35K, 47K, and 65K. They will give you "equity credit" towards the purchase. That is the amount you originally paid for the unit(s) would be credited towards your new purchase(s). You cannot for example apply what you paid for 3 weeks towards 1 week. Also the FIXED week option does not allow for splitting a week or an uprgrade.

They are also selling FIXED weeks in the older bldgs. You cannot make a multi-week reserervation more then 360 days in advance of your last week. Pity those who have 8,10,12 weeks.

A/C is no longer an option. It is compulsory!!!!!!!!!!!! Internet access is $10 a day with no refund if the power goes out for less then 8 hrs (common occurence) or $50/week.

Busby's has "confiscated" the beach in front of the great house. OBBR now has 26 umbrellas. The beach chairs all have towels on the by 8 am.

I will be gathering some more info. What ever happened to the idea that we ould ALL BE BENEFITTING with the addiitonal units?

Hello,hope thatyour weather is great!!! I am very,very disappointed with your experience and feel badly for you. Is Mrs.B's still renting or has she been banished as the last reports indicated. Has anyone pointed out to the staff at OBBR that if we belong to Interval or RBI we can and will trade our weeks and go elsewhere. They should also be aware that longtime owners have long since realized a profit by the fact that we have equalized our initial cost over 5+ years. Hope that you can at least enjoy your time in SXM.

I felt like I was in a housing project the last time I was there. They just keep building and building. I loved the little place...I guess it's all about money...

What weeks do you have? Are they all the same unit? What size unit? All the above make a big difference. Bigger the better, Jan, Feb,Mar prime. Last but not least location within the complex.

Are there any who own in the Pavillion Bldg. It is beautiful. I would love to hear from owners who might like to rent. Have they started to remodel the units along the ocean?
