I booked 715 Morningstar for three nights in early November of 2012. The home is well appointed, and has the little extra touches that really set it apart. From the heated stone floors in the kitchen, to the downstairs pool table, to the multiple large flat-screen TVs, and the hot tub out back, this home really seems to have it all and is perfect for a family get away. One of my favorite times of the day was sitting and relaxing in the hot tub after a long day of fly-fishing, and watching as the sun dipped below the horizon.
I would highly recommend renting 715 Morningstar if you are looking for a luxury accommodation in the Sun Valley / Ketchum area. The owner Brent and his team at High-Country rentals are very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I have rented through VRBO.com for several years now, from a condo in Maui, to a beach house in Newport Beach, to a ranch house in Arizona, and this was one of the best experiences I have had.
We rented this home with two families and had room to spare. The adults and kids were in seventh heaven during our stay. No one wanted to leave. Each bedroom comes with its own en-suite, making it comfortable and private. The kitchen is HUGE and has a wood fire pizza oven. The pizza oven was fun for the kids and adults to create their own pizzas and pull them out on huge pizza boards. We all felt very gourmet.
The downstairs is a kids haven. Everything from playing pool, X-box and ping pong. The downstairs also had a wetbar which made it fun for the kids to have their own food and drinks nearby. The backyard is spacious and the kids could even sled on the property.
While the kids played downstairs, the adults either relaxed by the HUGE fireplace in the cozy living room, watched tv, or took to the hot tub to fully unwind. The views of Baldy are spectacular and getting to town was easy and fast. The free bus is is also very easy to access, with a stop right across the street.
The owners really thought of everything when it came to making this house suitable for all ages. We loved it and will def. be back soon!
