    Hi Robbo, I am a time share condo owner and I know that the 2nd and 3rd floor units are reserved for the time share owners and are very rarely available for rental at a pretty high rate...this is because they are entire condo units around 1200 square feet with full kitchens, baths, and washers/dryers. I remember some people were able to rent units because the time share owners forfeited their week's rental but that does not happen too often. The hotel rooms for rent are all (unfortunately) located on the first floor which like you said offers a different angle view of the ocean. It is really a great place to stay if you are a bit higher up and maybe if you really like it you might consider buying a week's time share?? They are pretty reasonable and then you could visit every year for a whole week! We have been owners for around 16 years and we still love it and are sure you and your family would as well. Hope you come back and visit Tamarack again!
