I'm so glad we decided on that OKW contract! We are staying for the first trip home at OKW (our home) in July. I realize a request is simply that, but what would you say is your favorite area to stay?

Hi Jen,
As long as being close or far from the HH/lobby area is not a concern to you, I always simply request "water view" and have never been disappointed.

Have a great first stay !!!

Hi Chris,
What size unit are you staying in ? I love #45, but heard that because the studios are on the ends of the building, that they might experience some bus noise from this location. We were in a 2 bedroom and had no problem whatsoever.....had a beautiful, serene view of the canal.

We were in a 2BR lock-off in Bldg. 45 last month....it was wonderful. There was a family of otters across the canal on our last day. Our unit, 4515-16 was on the far left side (facing the canal). It was close to the road, but we were never bothered by bus noise. Some pictures from bldg. 45 (also a couple of the otters):

Buildings 45 and 46 are some of our most favorites. The views are terrific,. The bus stop is a bit of a distance, but the walk to HH seems so much shorter from there compared to the rest of Southpoint.

A few pics from aound the resort

Here are a few pictures of our "home". We have no trips lined up in the immediate future, so this is a chance for my fix

First up is Building 63, where we stayed in a dedicated 2br on the main floor on our first trip

The Marina and back of Hospitality House (and the pic I used in my sig!)

The Bridge in early evening

A picture from the bridge facing towards building 62 and 16

A picture from builiding 14 entryway looking towards the Hospitality House

And don't forget the pool!


The great thing about home is you can't wait to get back!

Okw

The resort location is one I like, it's not to close to the parks but not so far as I can't get to any of them in short time. The size of the units are great, I have not read a thread not liking the size. I own at OKW but we have been staying at BW with a BW view, love the view.
