Marriot Bonvoy to Compete with AirBnB

I wonder if you would be able to book through points, and how they'd deal with all the categories

Hyatt tried this and failed... They let you use points as a cash value that wasnt great. I think it was 10K points for $100 IIRC

10k points for $100 cash value would not be bad for Marriott points. Not at all.
I'm not who you think I am.

And Marriott likely wouldn't do that

I didn't realize Marriott already had this in a few select cities - https://www.tributeportfoliohomes.com/

Looks like there the point redemptions are valued at .004

Now live!

https://homes-and-villas.marriott.com

I saw valuations at about .6-.7 cents a point. Most of the properties are ridiculously expensive.

I had a hard time finding availability for the summer. Also, some residences will show up as a result to not-so-nearby places. For example, the island of Hvar in Croatia's sole availability was in Trogir, on the mainland.

sounds great especially for families that dont want to rent 2+ rooms, and is a way to use marriott points over cash for airbnb stays.

problem i am having, is that on the home page the homes have competitive price/ night advertised but during checkout it balloons.

for example i checked 3 different homes all around 30k/night, but when i tried to book a week stay it jumped to over 300,000+ for it.

The price on the homepage is the starting price, when you enter your dates they give you the actual price for your dates

figured as much, but is PITA to have to add to cart/checkout in order to get the actual price.

despite this is seemingly good deal especially for families, as there are many locations throughout Hawaii to be had for 300-400,000 points for 7 night stay while 2 rooms x 7 nights at hotels could easily cost 600,000 ands it's a house with kitchens .

Sitting on a boatload of points. When they ran a promo a few months ago, I redeemed with points. (Price in cash was $1400/3 nts)
