Oceanside is not in a downtown Urban setting like Anaheim is. And like San Francisco and ALL of the other city resorts, they have fold out couches as a murphy just doesn't work in that setting. Most don't have verandas or BBQs at all (SF, Seattle, Vancouver, etc.) so you have a plus there even having a small one.The 2 bed units in Anaheim are lacking a few WM features such as the murphy bed, bar-b-que, tv in the second bedroom and the veranda is just big enough for 2-3 people to stand on.
Oceanside was a larger unit typical of WM.
I think WM Seattle has Murphy beds, and the living rooms are actually quite spacious for an urban resort, probably because of the space needed for the Murphies. Vancouver does not even have sofa beds. It only has sofas. The "compact" 2BRs at Vancouver only sleep 4 and the 1BRs sleep 2. But the points are cheaper.Oceanside is not in a downtown Urban setting like Anaheim is.

Just an FYI, Seattle units are not all the same size. Vancouver does not have murphy beds, which I think that is what he was asking about, but you are correct in that that resort does not have sleeper couches either (shouldn't have used ALL). I don't think he was asking about how many per people per unit in Vancouver, he was commenting on how big the units are in Anaheim (footage). Vancouver is not a wholly owned WM resort, WM owns the units on certain floors only (but he wasn't asking about this either LOL). Boy are we off topic:hysterical:I think WM Seattle has Murphy beds, and the living rooms are actually quite spacious for an urban resort, probably because of the space needed for the Murphies.

Faye,Back on topic: Easyrider, have you stayed at the Anaheim resort? Is the pool heated? I am headed there in 2 weeks and can't wait!
I am surprised they consider Anaheim to be an urban location.
To me, Anaheim is suburbia, just like most parts of Orange County.
You guys are right. I have never heard Worldmark itself call Anaheim an “urban destination” either.Good one :hysterical: Anaheim is not an urban resort, I have never heard of Worldmark Dolphins Cove being referred to as an urban resort.
Thanks for the information on the pool and spa temps....I have been wondering about that since Rhonda posted the pool was too cold for him. You have been very helpful.We were at the Anaheim WM for Thanksgiving and it is a nice, new resort. The verandas in most units that have one are only big enough to stand on. We had two - 2 bed units for our visit on the 10th floor with one facing Disneyland. This unit had a nice view of the fire works.
The pool is heated to 80 and the pool spa tubs are 102 in the smaller and less in the larger spa. The 2 upstair tubs are 4 person tubs with one slightly warmer than the other.
Internet is aprox $15.00 for the week. Elevators are slow. Parking is in the building adjacent to the resort.
My confirmation letter says my units have a murphy bed but they didnt. Since I didnt have to sleep on the pull out sleeper it wasnt a problem for me. The sleeper seemed comfortable with no bars that you could feel. The king in the master was comfy as well.
Thanks. The price isn't too bad. Still debating about staying in a hotel with free wifi and free breakfast vs. here.I think the post linked below, while written in March 2008, is still the current pricing:
