i have a guaranteed hh reservation for July 29th thru August 10... however today i had knee surgery that was a little more involved than they originally thought. Do you think it is too late for me to get a two bedroom in rooms 61 thru 63? I really prefer a 2nd floor due to I must have fresh air while sleeping and leave bedroom door open at night.... would like to keep out as many critters as possible

Bldg 62, 63 and 64 are not hospitality house area. Plus you really don't want to leave the bedroom door open in August. Your AC will shut off. And if you have a dedicated two bedroom, that means the entire place will be shut off.

July and August in FL isn't the time to be leaving the door open anyway with all the biting, flying insects and high humidity. Just turn on the ceiling fan in the bedroom.

Unfortunately, the humidity ridden air (far from fresh), if you keep the door open, will force the a/c to keep running, unless you raise the thermostat to prevent it from doing so, making every other room muggy, damp and uncomfortable.

As for asst. bugs, flying palmettos, lizards, spiders, etc., they're equiped to reach the 1, 2nd and/or 3rd floor, sorry!

P.S. The only fresh air we get in August comes from opening and closing the fridge door quickly and/or from hurricane/tropical force winds!

i'm pretty sure that open windows + running the A/C also grows mold like you wouldn't believe. please don't do that...

Question from a newbie:

This may have already been asked/answered before, so if that's the case, let me apologize now. Can anyone tell me, in which buildings are the one bedroom villas located? We have a beyond generous and giving friend who will be letting us use her DVC points and have decided to stay at OKW for the first time ever. She has enough points that we will be getting a one bedroom - I just need to know which building to request. And yes, I know requests don't always work out, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some pixie dust! Thanks!

all the buildings at OKW have 1BRs so far as i know.

if you want the HH (main lobby/pool/restaurant/boat dock) area, you would need to have your friend book that up front.

some of us prefer to be away from that area but opinions vary. feel free to look around at interesting threads, do some searches and ask questions to get a better idea of what to look forward to...

The way DVC works, if your friend books a 1BR that is exactly what you would get. No pixie dust required.

Each building has a mix of studio, 1BR and 2BR units, with some also have a Grand Villa (3BR) so, as the PP noted, there are 1BR units in all the buildings.

The other thing to know. Most of the buildings do not have elevators and you have to use stairs. Some are three stories, some are two stories.
