I 100% agree with you @nickys , when we stay DVC, both privacy AND storage are important to us too.If guests need to come into my bedroom then my privacy is absolutely being compromised. When on vacation I like to relax. And do fun things. With DH. At any time of the day we might feel like it.
That is why we bought DVC. So the kids do not have to come into our bedroom. Whether aged 10 or 30.
You started off agreeing that the arrangement might conflict with the home from home idea. Now you’re just being argumentative. I’m giving my reasons, which you’re dissing.
Imo, it's inconvenient for everybody when people staying in the living area, need to go into the bedroom to get their stuff. Also, the idea of living 'out of a suitcase' for more than a couple of nights, is very unappealing to me. We like our spaces to be functional and organized, that goes for when at home, and when we travel.
