Check in in 13 days. Can not wait. Hospitality House 1 bedroom. Stayed there in September and just loved it. We own at the BWV's, since 1999. We spend most of our time at the BWV's but we so enjoyed the laid back feel at OKW and the ease of the hospitality house area is awesome. We tour at a much more casual pace now a days and OKW just feels so relaxed LOVE IT!!!

How are you assured Hospitality House area?? If it's possible I'd like to try. My mother is 87 & being close to everything is a definite plus for her.

You can't get that category for cash. Only points.

We will be home in just a few days and we can not wait. Excited to see how green everything is and to see the Flower/Garden show. Hope to spend some time at Fuego or just sit out by pool with good Cigar.

The contractors fenced off building 19 this AM to do some repairs/renovations. They have ladders on the outside of the building but no work started yet.

Yup, Cigar by the pool. Note the main pool. Sit by the smaller pool off Miller. We have spent many late nights and afternoon by this pool. Does not get to busy and their is a smoking area in a corner. Very nice. Can not wait.

So excited for our November Vaca and first time visit at OKW. I did request a top floor, water view room...I haven't looked a specific area/building...but thinking maybe I should. Would like to have a great water view, quiet, but I guess I would like it to be one of the first, second, or third bus stops...any ideas?

Again, thank you to all who post information, opinions and pictures...

What time do the pools close for the night please.

We'll be at OKW for 3-15 June and I'm going to request the Turtle pond area when I check in online, can someone also tell me if the 1 bed villas there are in buildings with 2 floors or 3 please?
Ideally we'd like the top floor of a 2 floor building, if that's possible, 3rd floor seems a little too far to walk .

One last query, do all the 1 beds have balcony access from the bedroom as well as the living area?

We've stayed onsite before at POR and loved it, we're really looking forward to OKW and the extra space.
