    Vero Beach because of the ocean.

    Old Key West would probably get my vote because of the space and low points required.

    Jambo's GV has the wow factor but requires a lot of points.

    SSR doesn't have enough living room seating for a large group.

    I've only stayed in an OKW GV. Bill and I have decided that we could live in this villa when we retire. We wouldn't use the upstairs after a while, but the downstairs would be all we needed.

    I've only ever seen one - the GV at BLT - but, boy, does it have a WOW factor with 2 story floor to ceiling windows. To be on the 2nd level overlooking the living room and those windows (especially MK view) is unbelievable. Certainly worth checking out.

    I have stayed at Boardwalk one story grand villa and it doesn't get much better than the ones on 4th floor. Beautiful long balcony overlooking the boardwalk where you can see fireworks from Epcot as well as MK nightly. It is huge and not to far from elevators. Location location location. I rent one every third year and feel like I'm in heaven

    We thought the same about the Jambo GV's - but we wouldn't have to worry about the stairs! It is larger than 1/2 of the places I've lived in.

    So my favorite is the only GV we've stayed in - Jambo. :goodvibes

    Size, layout, views and balconies!

    The GV rm# 3037 at Boardwalk. Great views, wonderfully long porch to sit on in the morning, watching the surrounding area wake up!
