Further to Superchief's recommendations, Canyon Villas is adjacent to the JW Desert Ridge. Canyon Villas is a timeshare resort under the Marriott Vacation Club brand, featuring 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom villas with fully equipped kitchens and in unit washer/dryer. Basically, it's like being home away from home. Recently classified as a Category 6 property, a villa may be rented at a cash rate or using Marriott Rewards points. One advantage of staying here is that you enjoy the space and privacy of a home plus the amenities offered at the resort AND the JW hotel. If you bill dining, spa, golf and other services to your villa, you earn 10 MR points/dollar. Keep in mind that if you redeem points, Marriott is offering a Pointsavers, 'Redeem 4 get the 5th night free' according to the schedule below. I'm not sure if this redemption is eligible or not for the Rebate under the PointSavers Plus promotion announced in the Insiders' Lobby:
Thanks for posting and best wishes as you plan for that special anniversary celebration.
