A letter- to- the- Editor

Nightmare in paradise 

"Concerned owners of the Point at Poipu timeshare in Kauai, Hawaii continue to have difficulty with their management contractor [b]Diamond Resorts International (DRI). [/b]  They refuse to accept the fact that they were hired to work in behalf of the owners not us working for their management salaries. 

The main problems are make-up of the Boards of Directors in favor of DRI with no input from the owners, and unwillingness to provide the owners with a means of communicating with each other.

Currently they control the vast majority of votes by getting the proxies and vote for themselves and put relatives and puppets on the boards, thus maintaining control of the resort.  Not enough owners bother to vote and DRI gets their votes by proxy. 

In the past few years the 5 member boards were composed of 3 DRI employees and 2 owner puppets who went along with whatever DRI wanted.  The Boards now have 2 DRI employees and 3 owner puppets one of whom is the mother of a DRI vice-president. The owners are not represented.  This group decides on dues increases, what funds are to be spent on improvements and their own compensation salaries. 

We have repeatedly requested the owner's list in order to communicate with each other.  We believe most owners would agree with our grievances therefore DRI seems dedicated to preventing release of the list.  We recognize there could be a privacy issue here, however there have been several recent judgments in favor of releasing the owner's list at other timeshare resorts.   

This is the perfect example of corporate take-over.  Our dues are so out of control that we could rent a comparable unit for less money.  We are already owners and paid "big bucks" to buy a "week in paradise" that turned out to be a nightmare.  Owners cannot sell their weeks to get out from under these exorbitant fees, they get almost nothing for their investment and often pay to sell or go into foreclosure and risk damaging  their credit.  Welcome to the wonderful world of timeshare ownership. 

The state of Hawaii could lose their attraction for tourists and there goes their main source of income."
