"This is our fourth summer in SR and the eighth home we have rented in total. The home is ideally suited for multiple couples with three dedicated master bedrooms and a master with shared bath (to the hall). You might want your own pillows because the ones in the main master were not comfortable (to us). Also, I was wishing there was a foam mattress topper on the bed. The bunk/recreation area upstairs, with its own full bath, was great for our single teen and adult kids. The kitchen is spacious and the dining area is kingly. You will find two crock pots, a rice cooker, a coffee grinder and lots of pots, platters and bowls for your use. The owners were gracious to provide plenty of dishwasher and dish soap, laundry soap, bathroom soap and even toilet paper. The hot tub is large, clean, powerful and private with exits from two of the masters taking you outside. Be sure to bring your bug spray because you will need it morning, noon and night and as soon as you step into the lovely yard. The location in SR is ideal as it is a short distance to the Village, the SHARC compound, the Nature Center and the Marina. The house backs to the Recycling Center but I only heard noise from there a few times (and you can walk to dispose of your recyclables!). Pros: location, size, amenities, ease of working with the owners, price-to-size value, home layout. Cons: bathroom fans and disposal are very noisy, mosquitos present all day made us reluctant to go outside as often as we would like (is it just this year or the home's proximity to the near-stagnant lake?). In all, we had a most excellent time and decided that 5 nights was not enough to do all that we had hoped! It's good to leave wanting more, though."
