After reading a question in a thread on the Marriott forum, I thought the following may be of some benefit. I hope they are. Below are four listings of all Vistana resorts sorted by different criteria.
1) Vistana Resorts - sorted by resort

2) Vistana Resorts - sorted by bedrooms

3) Vistana Resorts - sorted by villa size in square feet

4) Vistana Resorts - sorted by villa sleeping capacity

Very interesting. Thanks for putting this together, Controller1.

Can we add this to the Vistana stickies, please?

David,

I thought I double-checked everything last night with the Vistana website prior to posting. The site seems to have been down for at least the past hour. I'll double-check again.

Is there any reason those specific villas would not be shown on Vistana?

Perhaps because they are not offered for rent via VSE?

There are 3 different 2Bd LOs for WKORV.
Deluxe
Premium (OF)
Premium

The Premium OF is slightly larger than other Premium villas by the size of the OFP studio balcony.

I have these sizes for WKORV - as I was looking at MF/sqft.
I posted these a while ago.

An interesting addition (not easy) is a comparison to MFs.
(MF/sqft, MF/Occupancy, MF/SO)

If that's the case then including them in the listing might be misleading since they are only available to owners of such and not to others.

Perhaps, but I did get an OFD using SOs (from WKV).

For some reason OFD and OFC (center) floor plans are not shown on Vistana. In fact, I've never seen a floor plan for the OFC units - I don't know if they ever published one.

If that's the case then including them in the listing might be misleading since they are only available to owners of such and not to others.

Actually, anyone with enough Staroptions (and some luck) can reserve an OFD or OFC Villas, during the Staroption reservation period - if available. During the off-season, they aren't that hard to find right at midnight when the reservation window opens.

Thanks, Denise! You are unbelievably efficient and on top of things here on TUG! What would we do without you?
Thank you! You are most welcome!

David,

If you can find the square footage of these, I'll add them.

Thanks.

Fascinating. I had no idea they were that much larger than the regular 2BR units at WKORV, David. Having 400 extra square feet is a huge difference!

I see your post in this thread: https://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?threads/studio-oceanfront-maui-n-or-s.251025/ It looks like the studio gains space in the balcony and entry hall? But, no sofabed? Occupancy is only 2?
index.php

The occupancy of the OFD studio is 4 - and larger than Prem studios.
The OFC have balcony that adds about 80sqft.

The sizes are in WKORV CCRs -
I have a spreadsheet with sizes when I was looking at MF/sqft.

Aren't all the studios 4?

Actually, the OFD studio (commonly called the 'Deluxe Studio') is quite large and sleeps 4. Note the sleeper couch.
Maybe the square footage is 1800 total (OFD 2bdr) 690sf for the studio and 1110 for the 1br? Can't remember.

Yes - the OFD floorplan is huge. I was just commenting on studio occupancy in general - to may knowledge, all Vistana Studios have 4 occupancy.

The size of OFD wasn’t a response to your post - but, you are correct - all studios have an occupancy of 4 people. Did someone state otherwise?

It is a pet peeve of mine for people to over-occupy a villa...

I think it's because the floorplan diagram depicts the unit with a chair and table by the bed vice a pull-out couch.

View attachment 10506

I see - they didn’t put in couch.
I have this floor plan in my RedWeek Ad - need to modify.

The KORVN units are being slightly reconfigured (SF, full sized refrigerator and King bed in studio, full size oven in one bedroom units, updated lighter colors). We just toured one of the the newly remodeled units yesterday.

Is there a listing anywhere of how many types of each size villa are on each resort?

How is the square footage (assuming SF is square footage) changing?
