II, 2 Bedroom - 4 vs 6 Private

I got curious about how II determines the number of people that can sleep privately in a 2 bedroom unit. Some resorts for 2 bedrooms have 4 privately and others have 6 privately. (Also saw one, Oak & Spruce, that has 6 privately in the search results page, but when you get the resort details it has 4.) This is what I asked:

"The definition of the number of people that can sleep privately needs
clarification. There are a lot of resorts that are two bedroom, but
indicate that 6 can sleep privately. In my exchanges I've never seen
this to be the case. There is usually a sofa bed in the living area,
which can not be considered "private". "

The response I received from II:

"To clarify the difference between a 2 bedroom unit sleeping 6 privately
depends on wether the unit has a 2nd bathrooms.

*Two bedroom units with 2 bathrooms will sleep 6 privately.

*Two bedroom unit with "only" 1 bathroom will sleep 6 non privately.

Hope this information was helpful."

I would tend to think the sleeps 4 privately would mean two twin beds, a queen bed or a king bed in the second bedroom (so two people in the room). Sleeps 6 privately would probably be two doubles in the second (that can sleep two in each bed).

My understanding is that private capacity is based both on the number of rooms and the bathroom access. Each room in the unit can sleep up to 2 max privately. Thus, a 2 bedroom can sleep 2 in each room, 2 in the living area, for a potential of up to 6 privately. Next, it must be possible to access a bathroom without walking through another sleep area. If a bathroom has 2 separate entrances, say one from a bedroom and one from the living space, those areas will qualify as private sleeping areas.
