I've always been a “millennial free spirit,” especially with travel. I enjoy traveling to a new country every year. In the past, I've visited Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, once or twice a year — because who doesn’t love tacos al pastor and sunset beaches? In 2015, I explored buying a vacation home in Mexico since it made my heart smile.

That’s when I stumbled upon this incredible concept during one of my exploratory dives into the world of vacation homes: Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare. Captivated by the idea, I had my first chat with a Sales Executive out of curiosity. However, I wasn't quite ready to make the jump. 

One of the reasons I fell in love with Hilton Grand Vacations was the freedom. The program's structure was like music to my ears, allowing me the flexibility I crave. It was the perfect fit for someone like me, always seeking new cultural experiences.

What sealed the deal for me since my first call in 2015 was Hilton Grand Vacations’ growth. They’ve continued to add properties and destinations to their portfolio. My passion for exploration resonated with the possibility of accessing an ever-evolving list of places around the world. It shows both a growth mindset and a focus on what Members like me want out of vacation ownership. 

Since becoming a Hilton Grand Vacations Member in 2022, I've reveled in sharing my newfound paradise with family and friends. Hilton Grand Vacations has allowed me to extend the magic of luxurious getaways to the people I love, creating heartwarming memories in stunning locations like New York and Portugal

What sets Hilton Grand Vacations apart from the ordinary is its service. It's not a traditional timeshare. Hilton Grand Vacations hands you a deed, letting you savor moments that last a lifetime.

Looking back, I'm dancing with gratitude for the journey that led me to become a Hilton Grand Vacations Member.
