    The first week of January has always been a great time to be on Coronado Island – for usually-perfect weather, for holiday lights still up on the Hotel del Coronado across the street, for Loews Coronado Bay Resort (complimentary access for CBR owners) just 4 miles away, for the beauty of Coronado Island, and for all that San Diego and nearby towns like La Jolla have to offer.

    We purchased this unit in 2004 for first use in January, 2005. But we are long retired and it is now time to let go. If you think you would like starting the new year on Coronado as much as we have (or perhaps trading this super-high-demand timeshare for another location and time of the year), please read on.

    No two units in the Coronado Beach Resort (CBR) are the same. All have what might strictly be called "partial" kitchens but all have dishwashers, full-size refrigerators and all the appliances and cookware necessary to prepare virtually any kind of meal -- including cooking surfaces to oversize toaster ovens. City of Coronado's restrictions placed on the developers more than 25 years ago pre-empted installation of what would be termed a "full" kitchen in another property in another location.

    Note: While they were at it, the City of Coronado passed an Ordinance to prevent construction of any other timeshares on the Island. So if you love Coronado, this is THE timeshare property.

    If you buy this unit from us before year-end 2019 for the asking price of $895, your total cash outlay will be $3295 INCLUDING use of the unit in 2020, checking in Sunday, January 5.

    Here is the math: Asking price, $895 (just a fraction of what we paid in 2004). Escrow fee (Chicago Title Timeshare Division), $495. CBR ownership transfer fee, $575. Title insurance (optional) $250. Recording fee about $50. CBR 2020 maintenance fee $1030. That comes to a total of $3295.

    But, if you're NOT interested in using the unit in January, 2020, your cost would not include the 2020 maintenance fee. So $3295 minus $1030 (2020 maintenance fee) comes to $2265 and first use in 2021.

    You might ask, “Why not buy direct from the Resale Desk in the Resort itself?” Because their minimum sales commission and closing cost comes to about $3600. As a result, their asking price for a unit like ours has to be a lot higher for sellers like us to realize anything from the sale of our week. We have been told that the usual opening/asking price for a 1 BR Week 1 unit at the Resale Desk is $6000 or more.

    If you want to know more about the Chicago Title Timeshare Division – our experience with them has been first class all the way -- go to
