To ensure a viable and long-lasting holiday program for the benefit of Members, it is necessary that Annual Levies take into account the actual expenses of the Club including the upkeep, maintenance and repair of the Club Apartments. Each Member (including the Developer) is obliged to pay Annual Levies. The number of Member Points that you own determines the amount of the Annual Levies you pay. Members with higher amounts of Member Points will pay higher Annual Levies because of the greater amount of Apartment usage that they are entitled to.

Levy Holiday allows Members to take a break from paying their levies in the current year. Members simply nominate by June 30 to have their current year’s annual allotment of Member Points returned to the Developer and the Developer will pay their Levy payment for the current year.
- Members may access this benefit of Levy Holiday for no more than two consecutive years in any three -year period
- There is a processing fee of US$30
- Failure to nominate by June 30 will mean that the full amount of annual levies are payable
- Any Member who has made a full or part payment of annual levies prior to June 30 and then nominates to participate in the Levy Holiday will receive a refund from the Developer for annual Levies paid
