Re: Message to the board
Seeing your picture in my email weekly makes it feel like we’ve met but I don’t think we have had the occasion. My parents bought Eagle’s Nest back in the 70s and my family had been coming to Marco Island through their ownership. I don’t recall when we took over but we now own the condo for week 2 since, maybe, the 90s.
I don’t know if you were looking for responses to this email but I have to say that I was quite happy when I heard about the Friendship List and have used it. I found the process of dealing with the owners directly easy and manageable. I think owners are happy to know that another owner is benefitting from their inability to use the week(s). It also provides the owner with a monetary benefit. I have not ever tried to rent additional time from management but would imagine there is an additional cost as they need to make money to pay their staff; direct rental through the owner is like buying a house without the realtor expense.
That’s my take on this for what it’s worth. I appreciate the amount of work it is for you to maintain the listings especially since you have had some technical issues recently. As an owner of one week I will defer to others who have several weeks of ownership at this great place.
Maybe we will meet sometime. If not, thank you for your efforts with the List.

I vote to keep the list because it is OUR property and not our job to
make their job easier. Does she think she can tell us what color to
paint our front door at home? Did we buy Eagle's Nest to make the best
rental deal for Hilton or for us, the owner?
What you do is a kind service to the owners. A person could always offer their units on other web sites if desired and the effect on the staff would be the same?
Thank you for doing what must be a pretty thankless and time-consuming job. I've subscribed to your list for quite a while and used it for a rental for the first time this year, and am in the process of renting again for next year. I own week 43 (30 years now) and have never rented or traded it. I just need a little more Eagle's Nest in my life. I do think you provide a valuable service. I know this cuts EN out of making a commission, but I, for one, am grateful for what you do.
We as owners appreciate all that you have done to provide a service for us as owners. I feel your service benefits the owners first before the renter who comes in off the street wishing to spend the night at Eagle's Nest.
Last year we were able to rent two weeks from your list in units that we knew were ADA since I am a paraplegic in a power chair and can no longer use our tower unit. The owner in turn got the full amount of the rental instead of 2/3 of it and it benefited the owner as well as the renter! We were not able to find a renter for our week so we deposited with II for a trade which we are using this May.
This is a wonderful service you have provided for the owners and I hope you will not give it up!
Gratefully, Donna Shiflet
Joyce and I will be at Eagles Nest weeks 10---13. We support what you are doing as I know many other owners will too. What I can't stand is our new Director CANDY and all her Facebook CRAP I get. I have dropped my Facebook account do to all her garbage. Two years ago I had open heart surgery and put 2 of my weeks up for rent with you. Within a day I had them rented. Your listings are greatly appreciated.
Love the Site, the work you do, & believe is to the betterment of the owners!!! Kepp up the Good work!!! 5 Weeks in 407!!!

For what it's worth, I would hate to lose the great service you provide at no cost to us.
As owners of 9 weeks @ EN I find the Friendship List extremely helpful & would not like to see it go away. It’s a real service to the owners.
Would like to know why Mona feels it makes her job harder.

You are providing owners a very valuable service. Through this service owners can work directly with other owners on pricing their units for rent. Eagles Nest does not offer this service. If putting up our unit through Eagles Nest there is a set price and we as owners have no say to who rents our unit. Many times we just want to pay our annual fees through renting the unit when we are not able to use the unit. Through Eagles Nest we may end up not getting. Rental at all because of their set pricing per day or per week. Your service is available to all. Unfortunately, Eagles Nest does not allow all owners to learn about the service.
Please keep doing what you are doing in support of the owners.
I find the "Friendship list" to be very helpful. It gives us an opportunity to add a week from a member or make one available. I do not understand the problem.
Will you explain the problem? I am confused.
I assume that is voluntary to be on your list. Do you get your email list directly from the staff?
I do not see what the issue as it is designed to be a friendship listing helping to get & give information. It can be valuable to all of our owners.
Thank you for your work & efforts on our behalf.
Be well, Regis Brodie (week 3 & 4)
Don, I am very much a fan of this Friendship List and I encourage you to keep it going. I disagree that this is detrimental to eagles nest, though hearing Mona's position would be interesting.There are certainly other web sites doing the same thing, albeit for a fee. Your list brings important flexibility for owners to easily match weeks with their personal schedules and that then allows additional family members to rent the same weeks. Limiting those options, or leaving me with an unused week, does not make for happy owners. Also I think staff or sales people unnecessarily make what they have available difficult to determine as they won't post exact dates and prices, despite how convenient technology makes things. I strongly encourage you to stay the course. Competition and "free press" are good for all of us. Thanks for listening and for the service you provide.
Don, please keep the Eagle's Nest distribution list up and going. I find it very informative and helpful as a owner. It is also helpful in helping other owners trying to get extra units for friends and family at a pretty good price.
My name is Joel Russell and my wife and I own two weeks (3&4) at Eagles Nest. Both of us believe that the Friendship List provides very valuable information that is not available readily in any other format. We hope that you will continue to inform us with this very useful tool that provides opportunities for the Eagles Nest owners. Personally I believe that Mona has overstepped her bounds in suggesting that your efforts are not in the owners best interest, which clearly is not the case.
Thank you for all your time and effort in providing this valuable E N Friendship List.

I joined a group of 8 owners this morning to discuss your recent communication. We vigorously and unanimously agreed that you provide Eagle's Nest owners a wonderful service that would be greatly missed if you were to terminate your site. Please continue and we THANK YOU for the valuable service you provide.
PS We would appreciate your posting the following:
and then this following follow up: Wanted listings
Thanks for posting the notice so promptly. Within minutes, I received a call and unit 406 in week 52 is now rented! In the process, I'm receiving more money than I would have if we'd rented it through Hilton G. V., and another Eagle's Nest owner is renting it for substantially less than it would have cost if he'd rented it through HGV.
Therefore, two owners have benefitted from your site. S0--thank you again for your service; I would like to buy you a lunch or dinner the next time we are both at the Eagle's Nest. (We're usually here in weeks 1-11.)
Have a good year.
Don...thanks so much. We rented week 52, #406 from Jon. Another example of the great service you are providing.
