If you can rent "safely" from David's or an owner you know/trust I would go for it.

I love Pop, but a nicer resort for just a bit more is hard to pass up.

The reason I don't rent is that we don't like studios for our family and I like daily housekeeping. I have also been lucky enough to get fd the last four trips, so paying a bit more for the room thru David's (which I hear nothing but great things about) and then paying for food for a family of four to stay DVC vs mod doesn't make sense.

All that said, in a few years dh and I will be empty nesters and a studio with a sofa will be ideal. And I won't need daily mousekeeping because my sloppy kids won't be with me! And fd won't be a great discount since it will be two of us!

So in your scenario, I would hands down do the rental.
Have stayed at: Poly, OKW, CBR, CSR, POR, POFQ, Pop, ASMO, ASSP, ASMU, BWV, SSR, DLH, GCH & PP. And seven wonderful nights on the Magic!

If you can afford it - defiantly go with the renting points. I think your family will enjoy it a lot more then staying at a value. Even though its a lot cheaper - the villas and deluxes are incredible!
I have never rented points before since I am a part of DVC.

The Villas are very nice. They all have great pools with slides and nice perks that come with staying there.

I think the cheapest out of the villas are OKW, SSR and maybe AKLV or (I have stayed at all three) WLV also might be pretty cheap.
I have also stayed at BC - which is my fav so far.
