All photos have shades closed for a reason. If they are open you are totally exposed to anyone who looks your way because they face the parking lot. I love Sun Valley for the light and if I'm "home" I want the blinds open to enjoy it...not feel in the dark as if I'm in Alaska. The bedrooms are great, spacious and comfortable. This would be a good place for 3 couples who plan to be out all day and primarily eat all meals away and live rather separate lives while at the condo. The common living area/kitchen is cramped. Good for "on-the-go" eating or taking turns. We took our pre-teen and teenager thinking we'd be able to invite others over for a meal in the evening. NO ROOM for guests.
