Sunriver is one of my favorite places because I am a skier, a runner, a golfer and a shopper and I appreciate small relaxing villages. Our stay at the Caldera home was a wonderful mix of comfort, beauty and activites in a quiet restful environment.

We drove up from Eureka CA and went immediately to the newly remodeled grocery story in the Sunriver Shopping Center to buy groceries to prepare for our 3 day getaway. We picked up the keys at the real estate office and drove 3 miles to a beautiful gated community with close views of a golf course and vista views of mountain ranges and a beautiful sunset.

We found the house and pulled in to the paved driveway and the 3 car garage. I had imagined a cabin and instead found a house with beautiful wood floors, 4 bathrooms, 3 of them in their own master bedrooms, a laundry room, office, dining room, family room with a view and a fireplace and a gourmet, fully stocked kitchen. I had to chose between trying out all the appliances, or all the bathtubs. I decided to think about it in the hot tub on the porch with a view of the sunset, the deer and the golf course.

The feel of the place was spacious and relaxing. I could imagine spending more time here and inviting 2 other couples. We could all have a master bedroom which includes our own shower and bathtub and a walk in closet I appreciated being able to unpack and have easy access to all my things. It felt like home with a comfortable kitchen and pantry and a chef’s barbeque if you wanted to eat outside on the deck.

The golf course is a short 9 hole course a half mile from the house, the neighborhood roads are perfect for an after dinner walk and the ping pong table was great evening entertainment. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend, that didn’t cost us anything other than food and the rent as everything else was available in the home. It was a great value and a beautiful, active weekend.

Caldera Springs at Sunriver

It is a fact that there are plenty of rentals in Sunriver. This is due to the abundance of outdoor activities, wilderness for hiking, fly fishing, and skiing, breweries, restaurants and shopping in Bend and golfing opportunities in Sunriver and Bend.

I usually prioritize fly fishing on the Deschutes when I vacation in Central Oregon. But this time I spent an enjoyable afternoon at the High Desert Museum, bought new golf shoes at the Nike outlet, golfed the Caldera Springs Par 3 golf course (twice), played ping pong in the garage and soaked the hot tub on the deck of our our luxury vacation rental in Caldera Springs on Dancing Rock Loop.

This house was amazing and the view is fantastic. The back yard spills onto the fairway and the deer stop by for dinner each night. The deck has room for 8 or 9 and the barbeque not only has room for at least 8 steaks, but has it’s own refrigerator to keep you hydrated during the hot task of cooking.

There were only 2 of us staying there and we had some friends from Bend come by for dinner, so the house felt like a mansion. 4 bedrooms, 2 dining rooms 5 bathrooms and an oversized 2 car garage. The appliances are brand new and stainless, with plenty of room in the fridge and pantry.

Each night we cozied up on the couch by the fire, cranked up the surround sound and watched a dvd or 2. The house has a DVD library of 150 and we brought the netflix as backup. And I even got a chance to watch a European Soccer final on the 50” TV.

It is a beautiful house in a gorgeous setting, I’m looking forward to returning in the winter time for a Mt. Bachelor ski vacation.
