"Craig is an extremely experienced and responsive homeowner! I had many questions before and after we booked and he was incredibly prompt, thorough and helpful in his responses. And patient! The thing is...I got nervous. I was probably the most uptight renter he's ever had. Why would anyone get stressed about a trip to Sunriver??!! Well, I was the one planning it for 3 other families and they were all coming a great distance. And suddenly the forecast was calling for a really historic heatwave...2 weeks worth of temps in the very high 90s, which is really unheard of for the area, and I knew that the house (like most at Sunriver) didn't have AC. Craig was patient and reassuring, and then even delivered to the property extra window box fans ahead of our arrival. The heat did NOT end up being a problem at all. The home is well shaded, the night air is very cool, and the overhead fans and window box fans were great (and in the end, the daily highs weren't as high as predicted). Now, on to the house. I think all the families in our group would say their number one favorite thing was the location. Being nestled in the woods, but right across from the village (with its grocery, ice cream, coffee, cafes, etc) was just fabulous. It gave the teens and tweens a freedom they haven't had on other summer trips. Since we take turns cooking dinner, getting provisions (or just making a beer run) at the store was a pleasure, unlike other summer trips we've shared where a trip to the grocery was an ordeal. The house is just a very short walk or bike ride to....well, to everything...to the lodge, to SHARC, etc. We appreciated the bikes! We all rode around the big and utterly beautiful loop by the lodge, with the views of the river, horses, mountains, golf course, etc. When one of the bikes experienced a problem with the chain, those incredibly nice folks at the Sunriver Bike Barn fixed it for free. They even found a special adapter needed to blow up the tires on my bike that I brought from home. Back to the house...we all appreciated and wanted to thank Craig for the absolutely incredible amount of supplies he provides...enough toilet tissue, dish soap, and household products to supply a small army. And the kitchen was the best stocked we've ever encountered (thank you for providing so many coffee cups, plates, silverware etc!!). One night we took advantage of the food truck/lawn games up by the Lodge. Fun! Thanks, Craig!"
