Hi there,

I have been looking high and low for pictures of the newly renovated 3 bedroom grand villas at OKW. I can't find anything online or on youtube and Davids DVC doesn't have anything either.

Does someone where have pictures or a video walk through from a recent visit that you can share?

thanks!

I've tried to locate some too over the past few months and found only a single picture:

Well, they added the ugly floor, ugly furniture and ugly rug in the living room. And the ugly window toppers. And the ugly dyed coral in the picture frames. Why?

    I must admit as much as I like the refurb, it still looks a bit "tired" in the GV. Maybe its the layout?

    I'll look for a couple pictures I took a few weeks ago. I thought it looked good except for the floor. Some people will love a look and others will hate it, oh well, I think it looks real good. The fish pillows on the couch are cute, and the framed coral adds a nice touch. I really enjoyed looking at the print in the dining room. The bathrooms look great, such an improvement from that plastic peach color.

    I toured a grand villa yesterday. It was definitely not tired. Really nicely done. Fresh. Good quality. The couches and sleeper chair are Ethan Allen. They should last. We are booked in one for a week next year. I can hardly wait.

    I like it all except the floor. It's bright, colorful, airy and that's a big plus for me.

    We recently stayed in grand villa 1522. 3 Nights. Was supposed to be 8 of us but only 6 ended up going.

    Room was fantastic. The people who are complaining about the refurbishment probably liked the Key West elements but we loved everything about the grand villa. Lucky to get it because I didn't book early, but the point value at 48 points a night cannot be beat. Oct 20,21,22.

    This value alone is why we own at OKW.

    Bonus was a 4th bathroom I did not know was there!

    Does the renovated Grand Villa at OKW have a sleeper chair and a sleeper sofa?

    I like it, but it isn’t nearly as good as the GV SSR refurb, which is really nice.

    The poster needs some lessons in basic videography, but at least she didn’t put it in portrait:

    Yes, I do, I'm still learning, thanks for the feedback. A cast member was taking time out of their schedule to drive us around and allow us to view the grand villa, so I was trying to hurry.

    lol - I take pictures much more than video and really have to concentrate on not moving the video camera like I do when I'm looking at things. I usually fail. :rotfl2: Thanks for taking the time to video and share though! Nice to finally see what it all looks like.

    Are the OKW GVs hard to get at 7 months? I really like the pictures of how they look.
    They would be less points than my GV at SSR. The dates would be
    November 10-15, 2020. Also, would you stick with a GV at SSR if your main focus of your trip was DTD and golf and
    not the parks (we may only do a two day park day). There will be three couples and we want to have nice dinners, drinks and
    watch live music in the evenings so DTD is our focus and hoping to get Highway in the Sky for one night in the middle of our trip.
    Thanks.

    Ha- thanks for posting it- you did it and that is the main thing- just go slower and it would be perfect!
