Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2007
Sheldon Good & Company of California, Inc. is pleased to announce the extension of its auction of 24, one-eighth deeded ownership shares at the fabulous Club Casa Mina in Santa Barbara, California until the 29th of June (http://www.sheldongood.com/casamina.php). Fractional ownership shares of the club's award-winning luxury residences have been divided among five fully furnished 3-bedroom villas and two fully furnished 2-bedroom penthouses.
Just days after the official start to summer comes a rare opportunity to join one of the most exclusive residence clubs in the country. Best of all, you get to name your price for the chance to be a one-eighth fractional owner of any of the available villas or penthouses.
Club Casa Mina, an architectural gem in the heart of sunny Santa Barbara features stunning vacation villas and penthouses designed with elegance, relaxation and serious pampering in mind. Under the club's unique equity structure, ownership of each luxury residence has been divided into eight fractional interests. At the June 29th auction administered by world-renowned real estate auction house Sheldon Good & Company, prospective owners will be offered the opportunity to bid on 24 of these fractional interests. What this means is that successful bidders will gain access to an exclusive retreat in a coveted location without the multi-million dollar price tag or the hassles of every day maintenance.
Unlike standard time-shares, Club Casa Mina's fractional owners are guaranteed at least 28 days of reserved vacation time every year, with abundant opportunities for additional getaways based on availability and reservation policies. Owners benefit from having access to any residence within the same ownership category.
The Spanish mission-style enclave, which garnered a top prize for architectural design at the 2006 Pacific Coast Builders Conference Golden Nugget Awards, is nestled away within the center of Santa Barbara's vibrant El Presidio Old Town District. Just steps away, wide avenues lead to the charming cafes, fine restaurants and premiere boutiques of Paseo Nuevo and State Street.
"Casa Mina's exclusive address, in the heart of Old Town, offers the benefits of owning a world-class vacation residence without the exorbitant costs or maintenance headaches of traditional real estate," said Alan Kravets, President of Sheldon Good & Company Auctions LLC. "In addition, Casa Mina ownership combines the advantages of a luxury vacation home with the amenities of a fine hotel, granting owners a lifetime of pampered, stress-free Santa Barbara getaways. Club Casa Mina is the perfect weekend getaway vacation home for people working in nearby cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco,"
added Mr. Kravets.
Successful auction bidders will also receive a complimentary two-year membership in the Resort to Resort vacation network, an exclusive homeowner exchange program developed by Intrawest in which the key to a Club Casa Mina resort home can open the doors to more than 155 exclusive vacation homes in dozens of highly sought-after destinations. Club members can hit the slopes at world-class ski resorts like Whistler, British Columbia or Les Arcs in France's Savoie region or savor the sun-drenched shores of Mexico's Cabo San Lucas or the Bahamas.
According to individual interests, potential owners may choose to bid on multiple fractional shares, or even on an entire villa or penthouse.
