Redeeming Points at Vacation Club resort?

I am trying to use a portion of my reward points for the Marriott Ocean Club (any of the towers or the main building) next September (2015). From the website, it looks like its possible to redeem points there even though it's a Vacation Club resort. However, when I actually try to book it, it just tells me it's not available, even when I open up my dates. Has anyone successfully booked there using points? If so, any advice would be much appreciated!!

    Where is the Marriott Ocean Club? Don't see this particular listing. There is an Ocean Pointe and Oceana Palms in FLA and Ocean Watch and Grande Ocean in SC. Perhaps I'm overlooking the obvious?

     

    Anyway, you perhaps are aware of the requirement for booking any villa 11-12 months ahead usually requires a minimum 7 night stay,unless you have some level of MVC preferential treatment. Also, sometimes, if you don't have sufficient remaining points in your portfolio it won't allow you to book unless you're borrowing from the next years point inventory. Or, if someone is delinquent in paying maintenance fees, which I doubt is your case.

     

    My suggestion would be to continue checking back with the site to see if space opens up.

    I think you're going to have to call Marriott Reservations for this.  Sometimes the marriott.com site gets a little squirrelly, especially where MVC properties and reward points are concerned.
