We also market directly to our companies’ extensive database of affluent travelers.

EAH will collect a security deposit from all rental guests and conduct a thorough pre-arrival inspection and post-departure inspection.
  • Are owners limited on how much they can personally occupy their residence?
    No, Owners and Guests of Owners may occupy their residence as much or as little as they choose. These types of reservations can be entered 24/7 via our online Owner’s Portal or by working directly with one of our Reservations Specialists.
  • What are the requirements for the Rental Program?
    One of the fundamental requirements for acceptance into EAH’s Rental Program is compliance with our furniture standards and the purchase of a hospitality package. This is to ensure that affiliation is only offered to those that truly match our standards necessary to meet the needs and expectations of our Members and Guests.

Rental Program Requirements

Owners who wish to participate in Elite Alliance's Rental Program are required to purchase a hospitality package from Grupo Espiritu. The hospitality package includes operating supplies and equipment, drapery, electronics, bedding, linen and terry to prepare your residence for vacation rentals.

Quantities and pricing will vary based upon the size and bedroom configuration of your residence, and the items selected within the hospitality package. Some items within the package can be omitted and obtained by the owner him/herself, as long as they meet our Residence Furniture Standards.

The items included in the hospitality package have been selected based upon quality, consistency, inventory and for ease of replacement. In addition, since each Owner can customize their bedroom bedding, Karla Cabriada with Grupo Espiritu, can discuss the specifics and standards once you have finalized your selections.

Furthermore, if an owner chooses not to partake of the all-inclusive Grupo Espiritu Residence Furnishings Package, the Elite Alliance Residence Furnishing Standards can be found below.

Vacation Exchange Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the Elite Alliance exchange program?
    The Elite Alliance exchange program was established to enhance the value, flexibility, and enjoyment of vacation home ownership. Elite Alliance members can experience exciting new destinations by exchanging vacations with owners at other participating residence clubs and resort communities that meet Elite Alliance's demanding standards of quality, location, and service. Elite Alliance properties are in many of the world's most coveted destinations. Your Elite Alliance staff coordinates between Elite Alliance properties and provides complete travel services for its members. PLEASE NOTE: to be eligible for Elite Alliance's exchange program you must participate in Elite Alliance's Rental Program.
  • What are Elite Credits & how are the values of Elite Credits determined & incorporated into the exchange process?
    Every residence club and luxury, professionally managed vacation home is assigned Elite Credits based on the destination’s desirability, location, seasonality, and residence size. Elite Credits are credited to a member’s account upon deposit of a vacation and debited when that member reserves an exchange vacation. Members have up to twenty-four (24) months from the arrival date of the deposited vacation to use their Elite Credits.
  • What are the three types of Elite Alliance vacations: Exchange Vacations, Elite Escapes, and Access Vacations?

    Exchange vacations are deposited vacations that range from $395 - $995 to reserve, and arrival dates range from short-notice to future availability.

    Elite Escapes are short-notice vacations, available sixty (60) days prior to the vacation arrival date. Reserving an Elite Escape does not require Elite Credits. Elite Escapes would be valued at many thousands of dollars but are made available to our members for $695 - $1,995.

    Access Vacations are only available at select properties and are offered at preferred member rates. Access Vacations do not require a vacation deposit to reserve and Elite Credits do not apply.

  • Are there any other charges associated with an Elite Alliance Exchange Vacations, Elite Escapes, or Access Vacations?
    Some residence clubs and resort communities may charge additional fees such as daily housekeeping fees, check-out fees, recreation access fees, or other charges. Details about property-specific fees may be found Elite Alliance’s website or the Resort’s Trip Guide.

    After 2-years, Owners can renew their membership with Elite Alliance by simply staying active as a member by making a vacation deposit.
