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.

Patti Poe purchased this house in 2012

We bought Our Little House in order to reconnect with the SunBird community. The residents of SunBird, both fulltime 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. 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.

We chose Our Little House because it has a very liveable 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.

Temporary Contract job needing a comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This place is perfect for what I need. perfect location, quiet, comfortable bed, recliners, propane grill, filtered water at the sink, gated 55+ community with pool, rec center, restaurant, golf course, lots of golf carts (make sure you look both ways :) ) close to work and everything. It is south of Phoenix so whenever I have to go and going against traffic not with. Airport travel is easy. The landlords are great and very helpful with numerous questions I have had along with letting me borrow things. The bungalow is fully furnished and has EVERYTHING I need. Even left a bunch of snack food for TV night with Netflix.

Wonderful Accommodations With Great Landlords!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 1/2 months in the "little house" in Sunbird and couldn't have been happier. Everything you needed to run a household was provided. Patti and Barry did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable - really "genuine" people who took the time to make us feel at home. It's a great place to stay if relocating (like we did) or just on vacation.

The full amenities at the clubhouse were outstanding and the location is convenient to shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions.

We would definitely recommend this property to any friends or relatives who are looking for short or long-term housing.

Thanks to Patti and Barry for making our transition to Arizona a smooth one.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
This home was just as stated. We stayed for a month. Clean and comfortable. Patti was easy to work with and willing to help in any way possible. We didn't use any of the resort facilities. We were visiting friends and spent most of our time with them. We plan on staying here again in October.

Very Happy Vacationers

  • 5 of 5
The cozy house looks exactly like the pictures. Very comfortable for the 2 of us. We enjoyed the patio & grill especially since the weather was a perfect 80's all of our time there. We are golfers & the executive golf course was very nice. The clubhouse was fun & gave us a chance to meet new people.
Patti & Barry were very helpful, the house was very clean & well maintained.
The location was close to grocery stores, restaurants, & other golf courses.
We would recommend this property & this area to any one else. We are going back next year.

PA cold

  • 4 of 5
Our short stay was very pleasant. The house is warm/cozy, comfortable, "home away from home" atmosphere. The beds are comfortable, plenty of linens, washer/dryer work fabulously, enough plates, supplies, etc. in the kitchen. Patti & Barry were great hosts. If we needed anything, either or both were there in a very short time. We are considering a stay there in the future!!! The only "BAD" thing....we had to head back to cold & snow in PA!!

Ad is not really totally accurate.

  • 2 of 5
The ad clearly to states bring your clothes and move right in! Well, as we arrived the renters stated a problem with the washer will be taken care of in a few days. After many phone conversations and three weeks a replacement washer/dryer was delivered.
An issue with electrical items was noted as well. You cannot operate a hair dryer and another item on a bathroom circuit?
Had to purchase household items such as a mop, an iron and ironing board that were not provided. Not to mention a set of steak knives as well.
Property was clean but not well maintained for sure. Cable television was a challenge operating the remote and re-setting the box to watch television in the main room.

Owner's Response: These guests’ dissatisfaction comes as a complete surprise to us because they always seemed pleased with the quality of the home and the level of our service. We sincerely apologize that we and our property did not measure up to their expectations. We advised them immediately upon their arrival that the washer/dryer had a small leak, that we had a new washer/dryer unit ordered, but the earliest we could have it delivered was after their stay. As an accommodation, we offered to give them all the currency they needed for the laundry facilities 100 steps down the street. Instead, they ran the washer/dryer continuously every day until it broke completely one night. We bought a replacement unit early the next morning. It was delivered and installed the following day and worked perfectly for the duration of their stay. These guests were without a washer/dryer for less than 48 hours, and we again offered them change for the laundry facilities a few steps down the street. An electrical breaker tripped during their stay because the bathrooms and the exterior outlet where their golf cart was charging are on the same GFCI circuit. We arrived within five minutes of their call and showed them how to reset the breaker. We showed them how to operate the TV, cable box and remote, and we responded immediately and reset the cable box when they called to advise that it was not working. Our home comes with extended cable TV and equipment used by millions of people throughout the Valley, and no other guests have had issues overcoming the challenge of operating the TV, cable box and remote. These guests called many times with questions and complaints, and we responded to the property within five or ten minutes every time they called and resolved their issues within minutes each visit. We do our best to fully maintain and equip our house but cannot predict or prepare for everything. Had they even hinted they needed steak knives and other items, we would have provided those in an instant, as well -- including an iron and ironing board for a vacation rental. Again, we regret that our property and our service did not measure up to these guests’ expectations. We do note that they purchased a similar property a few doors down, and we wish them well in their endeavors of owning and managing a rental property.
