We are so excited to go to VB next June 15 - 21. We are a group of 12 that consists of my family of 5, DBIL family of 4, DSIL and daughter, and DMIL. We like to have a 2BR for us. We were going to go for another 2 BR for DBIL & DSIL and their kids and a studio for DMIL (Grandma needs her own room on this trip). But after reading about the views, etc. we, of course, would like to go for the Beach Cottage. However, since there is a slim-to-none chance that we'd get one of the 6 at 7 months out, we would like to configure our group a little differently than the 2-2BR and studio. How does this sound: My family in a 2BR lock-off (in hopes of getting a top floor ocean view), and 3 OVIR for each of the other "families"? I'm not familiar with the floor layouts, so I'm not sure we'd be in close proximity to each other given the types of rooms we want. Also, it would be nice to get a 2BR with a view, hence the lock-off, so do I have to request the view or are the lock-offs only on the ocean side and requesting the lock-off should be enough? Thanks for your help!
