i live in sunriver. the developer, after his sales people told prospective buyers that the undeveloped acres around sunriver would have small commercial businesses like restaurants, cafes, retail shops, etc. low and behold after the lots were sold he went to the city for zone changes and variances and of course his buddies on the city council to whom the developer made large campaign donations approved a 5 story hotel adjacent to homes. suites in the hotel have a clear view into the yards and bedrooms of some of those homeowners who live just across the street from the hotel. Never mind the hotel lighting issues, traffic, and crime which will result. Not only that but there will also be an automobile or RV sales lot adjacent to SunRiver. and he said that was just the beginning of commercial development in the area. So future buyers beware. Don't believe anything that SunRiver sales people try to sell you. On the plus side, people looking for good buys in SunRiver may soon find many to choose from.

Default NO to Mesquite? Why?

I plan to take a closer look. The hoa is not a deal breaker for us but we want to know more.

We are also looking at reno - no state income tax. We have pretty much ruled out mesquite.

would love to get unbiased reviews of sun lakes.
We, too, have been considering (sight unseen as yet) St. George and Mesquite. Why did you categorically rule out Mesquite?
