Actually some of the x051 rooms that face the Village Green DO have big balconies. The one we stayed in had a bigger balcony that was even bigger than the x049 rooms that are just around the corner and face the BW.

Maybe the 2nd floor room? We were on the 5th floor and at least the 2 floors below had the same small balcony. But now that I think about it I could have dropped something down on a very large balcony. It was extra deep as well as wide?

Yes, extra deep and wide. But when we stayed it also had a tree partially blocking the view. I prefer the rooms directly facing the BW.

I had 5051 once, it had a small balcony off the living room and no bedroom balcony. It was the first time I booked boardwalk view and I was disappointed. My mom was with me and she wasn't well so I didn't say anything, I didn't want to give up the close distance to the elevator.

We had a Village Green studio just last month. We were on the third floor, had a great view, and I swear we could have held a cocktail party on that huge balcony!

Are there 1BR pool/garden views close to the lobby, on the same floor?

Either way, you can't go wrong. BWV is awesome!
Cee, you were not at the village green. the village green is second floor across from the BWI above Wyland galleries. View of the bike rentals and boat dock.
But maybe they call that area by the same name.

Yes, they are on the second floor (the lobby is actually on the second floor).
