Bed Rails

Wondering if bed rails (for a toddler) are available from Guest Services ... or would this be something we would need to rent from an offsite company? If they are available, how would you go about requesting them?

Yes you can request bed rails when you arrive. We have even forgotten to request them and just called housekeeping and they were delivered to us.

Hi folks - Love OKW! I also love a golf course view - I was wondering if anyone can recommend a great 2 BR building that overlooks one of the fairway's - Where they tee off? This totally relaxes me in the afternoon - love to sit with a glass of wine and watch the tee off.

Thanks!

Bldg 15. We stayed in a GV in that building, but I'm sure there are two bedroom villas also in that building. I spent lot of time on the porch watching the golfers.

We've stayed in a few different buildings but you need to be 2nd floor or higher I found since the trees seem to get in the way.
#28, 48, and 24 are a few that we stayed in with a good view.

I also find that anywhere on the course is good because to see the golfers try and get out of the spots they get themselves in is entertaining. Seen a few balls kicked back into play!!!!

Thank you for the map! It is very helpful!

Leaving from our very first stay at okw. I'm hooked! What a great resort! So quiet and beautiful! Only stayed 2 nights but we will be back again. Total hidden gem!

HI OKW lovers really looking forward to staying here for the 1st time in Sept.

Early days I know, still 6 months until we go, but I'd really like some advise on which rooms to request please. We've booked a 1 bedroom villa and the kids - 2 teenagers will be sleeping in the lounge so my requests so far are;

Top floor room (views & not having neighbours above)
Entrance to bathroom through laundry - not just bedroom (is this still just buildings 30 & above?)

Is there anything else I should take into consideration; we won't have a car with us but with 5 bus stops & older kids walk doesn't bother us. We do like to swim after our park visits but not worried about being near the main pool.

Any advise welcome

Building 15 is our favorite GV building! Love to harass them when they hit it in the pond!

We had our first OKW stay last October and ended up in building 35 in the Turtle Pond area. We loved it! Short walk to HH, bathroom entrance through laundry room, bus stop just across the street. Only thing I would have changed would have been to request top floor. We were first floor and the A/C unit just outside the master bedroom was a bit loud. If we had neighbors above us, we never heard them, so that wasn't an issue.

Yes, bathroom entrances through laundry are still just buildings 30+.

Thanks Aym2, yes Turtle Pool area looks nice, and as I've found out that there's a 'mug re-fill station' there too during the day. I think our main request will be 'Dual Entrance' to bathroom. I'm guessing in reality that no-where's that long a walk to HH for 4 fit adults who don't mind walking - it just the resort looks huge from the map. We stayed at Coronado Springs a few years back and that walk didn't bother us - helps burn off some calories from all your lovely food, we're on DDP and plan to take full advatage

We love the Turtle Pond area and quiet pool!

2nd floor is also nice. In 3 story buildings such as 35 your view on 3rd floor is limited by the vegetation as you are at the canopy level.

I am so sorry if this has been asked. I did try a search but had no luck. I have two younger kids (soon to be 5 and 6). We will be staying at OKW over spring break in a studio. Can someone suggest a room request for us? Every day pool use will be important and we will be using the buses for transportation to the park. We did not get HH booking.
