The SUN House is a unique and comfortable vacation rental. It is appropriately named for its warm and sunny location during winter days and summer evenings.

This single-level custom-designed 2700 square-foot ranch style house is located on the northern tip of Shasta Lake. The Sun House is just one-half block to the lake. Antlers and Sugar Loaf boat launches are only a mile away on the local road. See Google Earth location in photos. It features five Bedrooms, large Kitchen, Hot Tub, an 800 square foot deck with cafe lighting, entertainment room with home Theater, a dance floor and a pool table. Designed to be a vacation rental, there are eight outside doors which eliminate any potential congestion for large groups.

The wall mounted flat screen TV has Roku internet TV and satellite Direct TV, including a full sports package for serious sports fans.

Right outside your door there is a 12-mile, round-trip historic Lake tour on a quiet road.

You can enjoy the beauty and wild wilderness of Lake Shasta on a bicycle or walking and driving. For the very serious bikers there are some great mountain bike trails only a half block away from the Pine House.

Enjoy a cool Sacramento River swimming hole with a sandy beach. I will be happy to show you this beautiful location after your check in.

Lake swimming is best from a boat with the summer lake water temperature between 75 to 80 degrees. The local swimming hole, if available is a short five-minute walk. There is also jogging, wild-life watching and black berry-picking close by. My home is surrounded by tall pine for maximum shade and country feel. The back deck has 5 palm trees for additional shade and cooling. There are no mosquitoes.

The Sun House has ample parking at the house for boat trailers and cars.

There are many other available activities in the Shasta I-5 corridor besides Shasta Lake:

Lake and river fly fishing.

Mountain hiking at Castella National Park.

Exploring the historic towns of Dunsmuir and

Mt Shasta.

Tours of the Caverns.

See the water falls at McCloud and Burney.

2016 planned upgrades:

To accommodate large groups or meetings, there is an additional home available next door. These homes can be rented Separately or as a Combo.

See the Pine House at VRBO 442527 listing.

The two homes together as a combo can easily accommodate 35. There are walking paths between the homes which provide direct access without going back onto the street. The combo rental has 12 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, almost 6000 square feet of space, three hot tubs, a pool table and ping pong table, two outside eating areas, three gas BBQ and one charcoal BBQ, two laundry rooms, two inside dining rooms including one which accommodates a group of twenty for dinning and meetings. There are 22 outside access exit doors, and four wireless networks capable of serving over 50 guests at one time. There is off-street parking for two boats and 10-12 cars.

Please call Al at 800 694 5282 for Combo pricing and Reservations.

I personally welcome all guests at check-in. My promise to you is to make your stay in the country as pleasant as possible. I hope to meet you in the near future.

Great houses for big families with an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We've rented Al's Sun House & adjacent Pine House for long weekends in August each of the last two years. The houses are perfect for vacation rentals and have all of the appliances, grills, dishes, etc. that you would expect. They are always clean, the back decks are awesome and the proximity to the lake and Antlers couldn't be any better. Al is a gracious host who really cares about the quality of stay of his guests! He spends time at check in to show everyone through the houses and answer any questions about vacationing in the area. You won't find a better setup or host anywhere on Shasta for your family vacations.

Joy at the SunHouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the Sun House in early August 2017 during peak temperatures reached to 104; luckily, the AC kept us comfortable (southern bedrooms were less cooler). The home is located on the North end of Lake Shasta, we just loved it there, it was convenient for our large family to also rent the adjoining Pinehouse that was separated by a gate that we opened for easy access for the children, this was ideal since Sunhouse had a large dirt backyard conducive to playing volleyball, badminton and a well maintained hot tub. The house is clean, lots of beds and a large gathering room with a big screen TV, the kitchen is well equipped and a dinning room table to accommodate 10+ In addition, the location takes advantage of the gorgeous scenery, deer in the backyard, a neighborhood market as well as being so close to Antler Resort where you can moor your boat, rent an assortment of water vehicles (patio boats) and close to a public boat launch.

Al the owner was attentive to our needs, he took an active role in providing customer service; in fact, he makes daily trips for garbage and other maintenance.

Cons: The Sun House is in need of new carpet that may be due to unavoidable consequence of constant flow of renters.

Parking in the front of the house is discouraged, driveway is the best

However, this is offset by being able to have a lot of outside room to gather and BBQ, by the way did I mention that there is a pool table for your enjoyment inside. In addition, there are so many nearby great hikes and walking trails and a waterhole that one is never bored!

Owner's Response: This was a great family. This carpet has a pool table sitting on it. I have decided to move the table and install new carpet. Will happen soon.

Could be cleaner...

  • 3 of 5

There were some really great things and some not so great things about this house. It is an older house and the layout is a little funky but it is spacious. We stayed here with our four teenagers who really enjoyed the pool table and all of the games setup outside. There is a pool table, badminton, volleyball, ladderball and basketball. The hot tub was nice and clean but we didn't end up using it because it was so hot there everyday! There is lake access in the neighborhood and you can drive down to it if you have kayaks you want to drop off. There really are no true beaches on the lake. All of the sides are very steep. The best way to enjoy the lake is on a boat. The one thing I notices right away is the bad smell in the house. It was super stinky. We bought Febreze and sprayed the whole house but it didn't help at all. The towels and bath mats were all older and didn't smell good either. On our fifth day there we woke up to find mouse poo in the kitchen drawers. We contacted the owner who is very friendly and said he is aware of the problem and thought they had it under control. They were going to call an exterminator but they couldn't get there until after we left. I feel like this home could be a really great rental with just a few improvements...new towels and mats, no mice and a thorough cleaning.

Owner's Response: These guests were very nice. The unusual smell was a left over problem from the previous week when I and all my neighbors were required by the forest service to hide our garbage from marauding garbage bears. This problem has been solved. My guests had been advised of this situation. This home is cleaned at least twice a week. It takes 6-7 hours. My guests told me the story of their previous years vacation in Belize. There was a hurricane and they had to hide inside for three days, My home is bordered by wilderness on one side and Shasta Lake on the other. There are many many animals. Unfortunately we can't choose which ones we would like to see or not see. Field mice are like a a hurricane in that not much can be done about them. These field mice will run into a home thru a open door. Their presence the does not signify a dirty home This is a summer problem only and one mouse can only effect a small area which we can quickly clean. I allow no poisons inside or outside at the property. Don't let a mouse ruin your vacation in the country Allan

False Advertisment

  • 1 of 5

House was not what I expected but we made it work. Owner, housekeeper/agent met us upon arrival and reviewed the house rules..listed in the contract. House is not yellow- peach color. No grass in back yard. Coffee maker needs to be replaced- it takes about 30 minutes to brew and the top portion get extremely hot to touch. Dishes, silverware, pots were gritty and we washed prior to use, (one pan had dried on food inside). Owner has you put bagged garbage on front steps daily and He picks up garbage due to bears. We experienced a terrible odor (Stench) in the laundry room, Completely unaware that the Owner stores the garbage in garage where wall separating garage/laundry has a short wall with a 2ft gap on top of wall ..rotten garbage stench seeps into Laundry room. We saw him put garbage in garage at end of our stay. Good news we enjoyed the deck and spa. BBQ was a great asset. There is no grass but we enjoyed the backyard games set up- volleyball and net, badminton, horseshoes, ladderball, Lake was gorgeous, we water skied, rafted, swam, kayaked, went to the dam, toured the caverns, walked on Sundial Bridge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything wasn't perfect but they rarely are. Family time is a treasure. I will say though we did look back at prior reviews and one of which stated she was advertised a house that she felt was not the same house...I completely agree with that review, the pictures of this house are very old (the palm trees in the photo that are 2 feet tall with green grass are now 25 feet tall). Just Beware!

Owner's Response: Being the owner I am responsible for everything that happens at my home. I try to maximize the positive experience of all my guests. I can't confirm or deny this guests experience. This was a difficult week because there were bears ravaging the garbage of the whole neighborhood. Garages are the only safe place to store when waiting for pick-up. There was no attempt to hide the fact it was placed in garbage cans located in the garage. This seemed to be a better choice then having bears near the home or having garbage scattered throughout the yard. The Forest service has fixed the bear problem. I encourage all guests to report any problems. There is a 24/7 hot line to do so and the response is immediate. I was available every morning for the first three days and no problems were brought to my attention. False advertising is not the case. The one original image was kept because it pictured the deck so well. Yes the house was repainted but there were no structural changes. All other pictures are current. The volley ball court is a natural clay court and plays well. The tall, sheltering palm trees are pictured on VRBO. Thousands of previous guests have enjoyed my home over the past ten years and have placed many great reviews at VRBO It is not a perfect world but I do attempt to make it so for every guest we host. if you have any doubts, please call me
