SHORT STAY VACATIONS – The Best Way to Book Condo Stays When Your Vacation Lasts Just a Few Days

Short Stay Vacations specializes in finding what you need, when you need it — a nice resort condo vacation rental on your terms.  But, what makes Short Stay special is, you don’t have to compromise and accept the usual “timeshare for one week, checking in on a Saturday.”  And you don’t have to settle for an overpriced, undersized hotel or motel room.

Short Stay Vacations enables you to be flexible, to get exactly what you want, when you want it — and to request lodging accommodations at over 60 Worldmark The Club or Trendwest resorts worldwide.  You may reserve as many days and nights as you want.  You don’t have to stay a week, and you don’t have to check-in on a weekend.  The only restrictions are:

  • Subject to availability (popular resorts and seasons sell out months in advance, so be realistic about asking for “this weekend”)
  • You may reserve up to 9 months in advance

Short Stay Vacations is your answer, if you are looking for a holiday rental for:

  • Business, such as for a seminar, expo, trade show, conference, business or contractor trip, where you may just need a few midweek nights.
  • Sporting events or other attractions, such as Ironman, Olympics, Crankworx, county and state fairs, college bowl games, and youth football, soccer, baseball or golf tournaments.
  • Family events such as reunions, weddings, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter holidays with the grandparents or with your buddies.
  • A few days away from home and work, a chance to decompress, be the weekend warrior, go on short notice.

We offer excellent rates on all condo vacation rentals.  Please note that for most Worldmark resorts, the weekend rates are approximately double the week night rates.  So, for the best deals, request Sunday through Thursday nights, during off-season (typically, spring and fall).

How Do I Reserve My Short Stay Vacation?

In order for us to help you, please provide us with answers to these questions:

  • Where do you want to go?  Tell us the name/location of the resort.  It is helpful if you tell us the resort name, obtained from the resort list.
  • When do you want to go?  We need the exact check-in and check-out dates.
  • What size condo do you need?  Based on how many people will be traveling, select a condo size.  Most Worldmark resorts feature these lodging options:
    • Studio, sleeps 2
    • One bedroom, sleeps 4
    • Two bedroom, sleeps 6
    • Three bedroom, sleeps 8
    • Deluxe, penthouse, and 3BR condos are very limited.
  • Are you flexible on any of the above?  If so, let us know.

Once you have your desired travel itinerary ready, contact us at or 520-761-1412.

If you call us, we can often check inventory availability in real-time, enabling us to reserve and confirm your lodging accommodations right at the moment.

We require full payment by credit card at time of reservation.  All confirmations are non-refundable, non-changeable, and non-cancellable, unless you purchase optional trip protection for $150 (restrictions apply).

Our “Oh No, I Can’t Go”  trip protection is available for many condo vacation rentals.  $150 protects your week — allowing you to cancel for any reason, as few as 4 days before check-in (note: the cancellation deadline varies by resort).  Buy the waiver for $150, cancel before the deadline, and you’ll get 100% of your rental payment back.  Ask for details.
