Timeshare

Timeshare

The selling of timeshare properties has had some bad press over the years -we set out to see if we could find timeshare developments based on strong ethical principles. There aren't many out there, but what we did find is worth a look.

UK:

  • Trelowarren, Mawgan, Helston -http://www.trelowarren.co.uk
    As far as we can see, Trelowarren is the worlds first eco-timeshare, and they have done it very well too. Half of the cottages in this 30 house eco-community are avalaible as timeshares. The aim of the community is to be completely carbon neutral as well as self sufficient in food and fuel. A mixture of old new cottages are set in a beautiful Cornish estate with views over the Lizard and all necessary facilities from restaurant to pool powered by CHP boiler fueled from coppicing on the estate.

Costa Rica

  • Gaia Vista -http://www.gaiavista.com/eco-village.php
    A new eco-resort and retreat under development on the Pacific coast. Their aim is to create a sustainable community dedicated to environmental and sustainable research, collaboration and education -they set out their vision as creating "a model of a new way of living, and as a place to heal, grow and re-awaken deeper aspects of ourselves". They propose be a showcase of these sustainable technologies and the completed resort will include two ecolodges, rainforest canopy tour and treehouses, sky-hammock, waterfall hot tub, health spa and organic restaurant. They are currently looking for investors and prospective owners to join them.
