BCV Ground Level Pictures

I was hoping someone might have some ground level pool view photos . Maybe some thoughts on what you thought of staying ground level.

The ground floor patios are surrounded by shrubbery. So you are really separated from the pool area by the bushes. But your patio still isn't all that private. Not so different from the rest of the balconies where your neighbor is right next to you.

We were 3rd floor pool view in a 2BR that had 2 queens in the 2nd bedroom (dedicated)...villa 302. We were on the end where the balcony was quite small and off the living room only and neighbor's balconies weren't super close to ours but it is all open and anyone at the pool or on their balcony or walking by that area could see...but there was never a ton of people out there. Here is a pic and we were there 1/25-1/30 2013:

Great shot, thank you. We have stayed on all three levels of the turret across and DH and I loved it. I thinking ground level because on our May trip we will be with DSL,DBL and three Dks 15,12 & 6. We will be in a 2 BDRM , the kids are all good swimmers and DSL and I are both smokers (DSA right across). I figure in the morning we can walk right out to pool with our coffee and the kids can have an early swim whilst we wake up and get ready for what ever the day will bring. I am however worried about snakes . DH about privacy..

I was on the first floor at BCV facing the road. I did see a snake on my patio. It was a small one, but still.

But still is how I feel I was reading the snake thread , something about a women who stayed on gl and found a little one keeping warm in her bed That would be it for me. However I also read about a big one on an upper level of AK . I did not know they climb

Another ground level questions . If you go out on the patio and shut the door will it lock you out ?

No, you can't lock the patio door from the outside. But you can't leave the patio area either except to reenter the villa because of all the shrubbery around the patio.

If you you exit the villa and have it unlocked from the inside , shut the door while outside you will not be locked out automatically ?

That is good to know . It would drive DH and DBL batty if they had to keep letting us in. On the the other hand once DSL, myself and kids are outside they may lock the door , close the blinds and play as though they never heard anyone knock

Well, considering the patio is small, you might not get all of you out there at the same time.

DH would figure out some sort of ploy. I can Hear him now to DNs "Grace , Penelope ... hop that shrub and go get ___, Griffin go watch your sisters ! Jenn ... Stacy the kids are outside..." We go out and while watching the kids we hear the lock turn slowly as DBL slowly pulls the curtains closed. These men are slick, so THEY think

We have had green frogs in our VWL villa a few times. We were on a higher floor each time.

We had a few of those when we stayed at BWVs, I like those and have actually picked them off the wall. Snakes I can not do. I will have to take a broom and sweep the shrubs when I step onto the patio ( I do this when I garden to let them know I am here . Go away )
