SunRiver St. George Reviews
- Margaret & Fred C.|March 22, 2018When we first moved to Sun River we had no idea just how wonderful it would be. We have made the best possible friends, and feel like we're in our forever home. We also enjoy the numerous activities, from pickle ball to photography, golf, hiking, live entertainment, and so much more. What a great place to live!
- Margaret & Fred Cooper (Resident/Homeowner)|October 3, 2016I wish this review could be more positive. We chose Sun River 2 years ago, hoping that this would be our forever home. Now we're not so sure. There is a tremendous amount of contention here between residents and the developer. What makes residents unhappy?
There's only one average size clubhouse for 2,400 homes. Even though some prospective owners were told there would be a 2nd clubhouse, there appear to be no plans for one. Residents are often excluded from "sold out" events held in the ballroom, which is now too small for this number of homes. Owners all too often find themselves waiting for equipment at the gym or time on the tennis and pickleball courts during peak hours. The dog park, an important amenity for many residents, is very poorly maintained, and the management company is threatening to close it down due to a nearby homeowner's complaints about barking. There are serious transparency issues being brought up about the management company, which is operated by the developer. There is no security service provided for the community even though it is not gated for privacy. And, the landscapers are deemed totally useless by way too many homeowners.
A 5-story hotel is being built on property adjacent to Sun River homes. The hotel will take away privacy for homeowners living nearby. The developer could have opted for a 3-story hotel, but didn't choose to do so. There are many owners who aren't concerned about the hotel, and many who are. This has caused some rather significant divisiveness among them.
We love our home. Our neighbors are wonderful. We enjoy the city of St. George and all that the nearby area has to offer. It's such a shame that Sun River hasn't proved to be the relaxing retirement haven we were seeking.
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|October 14, 2013St. George is a great town and SunRiver is wonderful. We absolutely love living here. The amenities are fantastic. It's got everything you could need, the weather is fantastic and the people here are very nice. We feel like we've living in a vacation resort!
- Donald K.(Resident/Homeowner)|July 12, 2013We just recently moved to Sun River and cannot believe how wonderful it is - in all respects! The community is well-kept, lots of activities, beautiful views and everyone is exceptionally friendly. The homeowner fees actually include the maintenance of the yards so the neighborhood is just like new. The town of St. George has everything you would need and very good medical facilities. We moved here with only one visit because we were so impressed and we couldn't have made a wiser decision.
