The kitchen has a glass-top electric range, built-in microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator with ice-maker and a pantry.

We pay all utilities, including electric, Dish Network basic plan, local TV channels, and NetFlix, and we provide secured wireless hi-speed Internet service. (If you have Dish Network service at home, you can bring your set-top box with you.) The patio on the east side of the house is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee, and there is a chaise lounge for soaking up the sun. The carport accommodates a car and a golf cart. There is a small storage area for luggage, etc. The streets of SunBird are perfect for jogging, walking, bike riding. One of the 2 SunBird heated swimming pools is only a block from our house. The on-site Post Office and the Clubhouse with everything it has to offer are within walking distance. High temperatures in the winter months range from the mid-60s to 80s, and low temperatures generally range in the 40s. There may be an occasional rain shower, but you certainly will not need a snow shovel!

About Patti Poe

We live in a wonderful development about 1/2 mile from Our Little House. I (Patti) grew up on a farm in northeastern Colorado. I worked as an attorney in Southern California for many years. Barry was born in Phoenix and grew up in Southern California. We moved to Chandler in 2003 in order for our children to grow up in the family friendly environment Chandler offers and to be educated in the amazing Chandler Schools. We are grateful every day that we have the privilege of living and being a part of the Chandler community. I am a Realtor, and Barry is a self-employed computer consultant. We have always been actively involved in our children's schools and extracurricular activities. We purchased our first rental home in SunBird in 2004 and rented it until we had an opportunity to sell it at a good profit in 2011. We soon discovered that we missed having a connection to SunBird, so we purchased Our Little House in September 2012 and look forward to sharing it with you.

Why Patti Poe chose Chandler

The residents of SunBird, both full-time residents and winter visitors, are the friendliest people you will find anywhere. The streets are alive with neighbors walking, biking, chatting or heading off to golf together. Every evening, people carry food and wine to a neighbor's house to have dinner together. Laughter is always ringing from the pools. The clubhouse, post office, pro shop and restaurant are filled with people happy to see each other. It is a small town comprised of people from all over who share a common goal of avoiding snow.

What makes this house unique

Our Little House has a very livable floor plan and made us feel at home. We knew that we could make it into a cozy, comfortable home away from home for visitors escaping the cold. Additionally, many of the homes in the community back to another property and do not afford much privacy. Our Little House backs to a street that is not very busy. There is considerably more privacy and not much street noise. Although the homes directly on the golf course are considered premium properties, we appreciate that Our Little House does not have as many dents and cracks from stray golf balls.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that our vacation rental did not meet your expectations. Please know that between guests, we thoroughly clean the home and inspect for any issues that need attention or repairs. We accepted your last-minute request to start your stay a day earlier than your original reservation with the clear understanding that check-in was at 4:00 PM. When you arrived at the house 4 hours before the stated check-in time, I was still cleaning. I am certain that you would have been very pleased with the home’s condition had I been able to complete the cleaning and preparation process. We responded immediately to each of your complaints that you were unable to view satellite TV and to connect to the internet, but each time you had left for an appointment and were unable to demonstrate the problems you were experiencing. All of our devices connect to the internet without issue, and no guests before or after you have had problems with the internet. We provide internet, NetFlix and a Dish Network package of at least 50 channels, in addition to the 46 channels of over-the-air TV. In our experience, that is a far greater selection than most 4- and 5- star hotels offer. Again, we apologize that your stay was not what you expected. We strive very hard to provide the best vacation experience possible, but apparently, we sometimes miss.

Super in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and it does not not get under 10/10. The villa has everything you need for a great relaxing stay - superbly furnished and oh so comfortable. Lovely patio at rear for enjoying morning coffee or evening wine. Resort is top class - 2 heated pools, club house, golf if you play, tennis, bar and restaurant. Close to supermarkets/shops/parks and easy access to Interstate10. Owners were great and very attentive - top marks. Highly recommended.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my husband and me while we visited Sunbird.

It was quiet with private patio and just steps to the pool. It had everything we needed.

We were warmly greeted by Patti and found a lovely welcoming bowl of goodies!

This community is really awesome, and summer pricing was extra bonus!

Would love to stay here again, and will check its availability every time we come to AZ!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We loved having you as our guests, and we are happy that you could take advantage of all that SunBird and our vacation home have to offer. We are in the process of replacing all the flooring and making some other upgrades, so it will be a whole new home the next time you come to visit! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Very clean rental

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was a great location and very quiet. The owners greet you upon arrival and check later to make sure all is well. They are very accessible. The home was very clean and we will be considering returning on our next trip.

This vacation home has it all.

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit and we look forward to our third. Owners are available and look after every detail. Home is very well supplied and nice and clean. Area amenities are many. We especially enjoyed the pool area and activities at the clubhouse. I would recommend this vacation home to family and friends.
