Not to say we don't ever do studios (okay right now only PVB and 2 connecting) but we definitley are happier with 1 beds and above.
You are smart to buy where you are happy to stay. Another issue is those who buy and then are upset that they are stuck at cheap home resort. We nearly bought BCV but I love OKW. With the newer HH designation and cheap GVs it is great to own there.
Or anyone who wants to buy in with as little money as possible. I am not trying to sound like an elitist, but trying to make DVC accessible financially to more people did bring in cash, but really messed with the balance. Then again Aulani did as well it feels like based on timing, but could be a coincidence.
DVC went from being the best kept secret to kiosks everywhere. Sure they got money but I feel they grew too much too quick. Economic downturns will bite them but at least they stopped Reflections before it got too far.
I have the same thoughts, not elitist but DVC has really driven the "DVC on a (points) budget" mentality. Buy XX points and you have enough for a studio every other year.It really has messed with availability.
When we go as a family we get a one or two BR unit, and most of the time when my wife and I go alone for a F&W long weekend we get a 1BR. Sometimes though points get tight and we look for a studio for the weekend. They are almost impossible to find now. I'm not talking crazy stuff liek BW or BC either. Im talking about studios at SSR 11 months out.
