In ski regions such as Colorado , for example, homes are so highly priced above most budgets, that fractional ownership becomes very practical and often the only option.

The first clubs in the United States appeared near the most exclusive slopes for this reason, first in the west, then spreading further northeast. Golf was following close behind as a popular getaway destination with locations in South Carolina , Hilton Head Island and in various states that have beautiful beaches, like Florida .

Hot resort spots are also popular areas for residence clubs. These world-renowned, luxury getaway regions include the Virgin Islands, St. Thomas and Puerto Vallarta .

Expect the same 5-star facilities and service you would get if you stayed at the Ritz. Be chauffeured to and from the airport, arrive to a fridge full of fresh groceries, enjoy having personalized service when it comes to your dry cleaning, making your dinner reservations and even keeping the place clean. Custom leather furniture, heated floors, marble countertops and fireplaces are the norm. Get comfortable and don't worry about packing up each time because you can leave your things year-round, just like a real home.
