Overview

Sunriver House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This large house has 2,846 square feet with a high cathedral ceiling of more than 20 feet. The five spacious bedrooms and and loft plus three full baths is comfortable for up to 14 people.

The setting is a half acre heavily treed lot adjoining a several acre greenbelt with a forest covered lava featured ridge which provides privacy and lends to a feeling of being in a large forest.

The landscaping has been left in a natural state, but the owner performs the necessary cleanup to prevent excessive growth of vegetation which could become a fire hazard.

The house is three stories with the garage, laundry room, three bedrooms and two full baths and the hot tub deck on the first level. The living room, dining room and kitchen forming a great room, as well as an owner's room/ office, two more bedrooms, a full bath and the main deck with barbeque are on the second level. The loft (third level) includes ping pong area and sitting/ reading area. Please call or email for more information.

There are several bicycles in the garage for the use of all renters. Sunriver has about 35 miles of ten feet wide paved bicycle/walking trails that course through all the neighborhoods, to the Village Mall, the golf courses, along the Deshutes and Sun Rivers and circle Fort Rock Park which is behind the house. Children under 17 are required to use helmets while bicycling so remember to bring them.

Kids and adults will find the lava features and large pine trees on the hill to the rear of the house to be exciting to climb around on. Most families who have stayed here find this green belt to be a primary draw for their families as everything is so close to the house and within 'calling distance'. During the winter kids sled, snowboard and ski for short distances down this hill. The soccer fields, kids playground with lots of well maintained equipment, basketball courts, horseshoes, tennis and pickleball courts are all located just beyond the hill.

The size of the lot, location of the house 125 feet back from the road, and the forested hill to the rear also provide a significant amount of privacy.

Keywords: Large three level house on Fort Rock Park. Great Room Concept with Loft Above with Reading/Nesting Area and Ping Pong Table, Free WiFi, Large Deck, Hot Tub, Adjacent Green Belt with large lava features and Fort Rock Park for exploring and recreation with Tennis Courts, Bike Trails, Sports Fields, Large Playground, Golf Course Across Street, 35+ miles paved bicycle trails, Mt.

About John Kloster

Nancy and I, John, have five kids, and soon to have ten grandchildren. Our kids grew up with this house and hope to have their kids develop cherished memories of their own.

John Kloster purchased this house in 1989

Why John Kloster chose Central Oregon

We chose to purchase a property in Sunriver because it was a contrast to the city living in which we managed our professions and raised our family. Our extended family and many of our friends' families have also enjoyed all the activities offered in and around Sunriver. We have always been oriented toward snow sports in the winter and hiking, climbing, fishing, boating, golf, tennis and pickleball in the summer. Prior to our purchase we rented homes in Sunriver, both during the winter and summer, and found that we wanted to spend as much time as we could here. We had bicycled through all the neighborhoods and found that this house on a large lot on Shamrock Lane which also backed up to north side of Fort Rock Park and large green belt (a hill covered with pine trees and featuring a ridge of lava formations) offered privacy as well as opportunities for the family to use all the park facilities and still be within a short distance for monitoring many of the activities from the comfort of the deck.

What makes this house unique

What I said in the previous section on why we purchased the property is very applicable to why we feel our home offers a very unique vacation experience. The most outstanding feature of the house itself for most families is the great room layout of the living room, dining room and kitchen. In fact the loft above the kitchen and dining room look out over the living room, and the dormitory bedroom which is often the center for kid activities is observable from the kitchen and the landing at the top of the stairs.

Best house for large group, we will be back

  • 5 of 5

One of the great things about this house is that Fort Rock Park is very close, just over a small hill. The park has tennis courts, a full size basketball court, pickelball courts, a horseshoe pit, baseball and soccer fields, kids playground, tetherball. Whatever we wanted to do was always available. The teenagers in our group spend a lot of time here and at the SHARC. The adults mostly went over after dinner for a whiffleball or bocce ball game.

The house is very private. It is on a dead-end street with very little traffic. The lot is quite large and has enough trees to screen out the neighbors on both sides.

Even though the daytime temperature was in the 90's the house was comfortable, especially the downstairs bedrooms. The dry climate cools off quickly so we would open windows at night and close them in the morning. There was always shade somewhere on the deck even during the hottest parts of the day. Also, there was always a sunny area of the deck for anyone wanting that.

There was plenty of room for parking. For a couple days we had five vehicles and it was not a problem. There is a space in the garage big enough for the largest SUV.

The size of the house was good. The loft has a ping pong table, two couches, and a small table with chairs. The teenagers would spend time here when they were not at the park, the SHARC, or washing dishes. The kitchen and dining area were fine and there are enough tables and chairs on the deck for everyone to eat al fresco.

The house is good for groups with babies. There is a Pack N Play in one of the bedrooms and outlet covers everywhere. We brought a baby gate for the stairs and it was easy to baby-proof the main floor kitchen and living room.

Like everywhere we stay there were some maintenance items the owner will be looking into. There was nothing that would keep us from returning the next time we visit Sunriver.

This place fel tlike home right away! We loved it. A deal for the dollar.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this comfortable house. It was nice without being fussy, and with many kids and three small dogs in tote, we enjoyed feeling like real people could live there! The kitchen is located centrally and it is easy and fun to hangout in the step-down living room and have all the guests talking and laughing together at once. Meanwhile, upstairs in the loft, you hear the kids have a blast playing ping pong. All of the rooms were comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms. We loved using the deck to sun ourselves, and took advantage of the BBQ while there. We appreciated the compliment of 12 SHARC passes and the kids adored the pool experience, while the adults loved lingering outside in the hot tub they have there. Some of us used the hot tub at the house, but it was a little small and accessed through one room. Not a problem, but not very usable at night if people in that room are trying to sleep. We would most definitely stay here again. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed our interaction start to finish. Thank you for a great stay. We will be back!

In response to negative hot tub review...

  • 5 of 5

The hot tub is serviced prior to the arrival and upon departure of all guests. During the guest (March 2016) stay Our company was never contacted or informed of any issues or concerns regarding dingy water or hot tub function. A disclaimer hangs beside the hot tub with our company name and phone number clearly listed on it and we are on call to address any issues 24 hours a day/7 days a week. We pride ourselves in always providing a clean and sanitary hot tub for all guests and would like all future renters to contact us immediately if they have any concerns regarding the hot tub so that we can resolve them as quickly as possible. As an additional note, the hot tub cover has a cable and a pad lock on it ensuring that the area is safe for small children and it prevents any unwanted access to the hot tub.

The best Sunriver location

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived and am delighted by this house! Can't believe that there was negative review about the place. It's well decorated with everything that we wanted. It feels wonderfully private on a large wooded lot right next to Fort Rock park. Lots of room and lots of light. You will love this place.

Super Great Stay! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

I give a big thumbs up to this wonderful vacation home! It was clean, spacious and very comfortably furnished. The kids enjoyed the bonus loft with ping pong table, sofas and view of huge trees. The bedrooms were all decorated nicely and were comfortable. We especially enjoyed the private hot tub that is a fantastic amenity!!! Thank you for a great time... we will be back and will be sure to recommend this home to our friends!

Owner provides SHARC (Sunriver Homeowner Acauatic and Recreation Center) passes to the pools, tennis and pickleball courts, marina boat launch as well the new Sunriver Homeowner's Aquatic and Recreation Center which offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, water slides, simulated river for floating, winter sledding hill and many more activities. Google SHARC to get a complete rundown on facilities and activities.

Our property is unique in the Sunriver market as the lot is quite large and abuts the only public park in Sunriver, Fort Rock Park, and 200 feet from the main tennis courts. The tree covered ridge behind the house provides a very private environment for family or entertaining. The large second floor (main floor) deck brings you up into the trees providing a good observation area for wildlife that wander through the trees every day when dry. There are a number of large lava features along the top of this ridge which interest kids, but adults enjoy exploring when their kids come back delighted with the discovery. My kids who grew up playing there winter and summer are talking about their young kids becoming old enough to enjoy many of the same activities that captured their parents' interest.

The play fields, courts or all kinds, the bicycle path and the youngster oriented playground are just beyond the ridge directly behind the house.
