We decided to add on a third week to our Florida trip and booked Harbour Lake for the end of June using a deposited II week. We have never been here, so I am curious what to request as far as building/view (or if it even matters). Any advice is appreciated!

We've stayed there twice, it's not very big. As long as you don't have mobility issues, you won't have any trouble checking out the two pools / mini golf course.

We love it there, but it's best for kids that are probably 11 and under.

I would just request a room near to the pool (all but two buildings are really, really close), and you should be fine.

Are there any bad views like parking lots or roads to avoid?

Nothing faces directly to the parking lots. THough one may have Westwood Blvd view and the ones closer to I4 may get some highway noise. I would ask for 12, 13 or 28, likely in that order. If you are confirmed in to ta lock off type unit though, they may stick to that assignment and your options would be 28, 29, 30 or 31.

Thanks for the advice. The unit code is TOVI which looks to be dedicated. I'll go with the options that you recommended.
