CAVE CREEK, AZ-Despite being headquartered in Phoenix, ILX Resorts Inc., a developer and manager of flex-ownership vacation resorts, is finally expanding its local portfolio. The firm has put down $7 million for 19 units at the Rancho Manana Resort in Cave Creek, with plans to build an additional 20 units on the site.

“We have not had a big presence in the Phoenix area so when this opportunity came available, we decided to move forward,” Margaret Eardley, executive vice president and CFO at ILX, tells about the 5720 E. Rancho Manana Blvd. property. “They were originally sold as fractional units. There were two phases built. Phase one was sold out and we purchased phase two.”

ILX completed the sale with Rancho Manana Ventures LLC of Phoenix. An additional 19 units recently were sold to another buyer, according to Eardley.

With room to expand on the 3.8-acre site, ILX plans to add 20 units to the mix. Construction could begin as soon as the fourth quarter, says Eardley.Units average 1,500 sf.

ILX sells timeshare intervals through its Premiere Vacation Club brand, offering minimum seven-day intervals for sale at multiple resorts located predominantly in the West. Rancho Manana is the company’s second acquisition in Phoenix. Earlier this year, it bought the timeshare-branded Scottsdale Camelback Resort.
