Chandler vacation rentals

Out and about in peaceful Chandler

The bustling suburban city of Chandler is a dreamy desert paradise, seamlessly merging sleepy residential neighborhoods, palm-studded public gardens, sweeping golf courses, and historic heritage, with the buzzing bars, casinos, and high-end restaurants of downtown Phoenix just a few miles away. With the wide array of Chandler vacation rentals on offer, you’re sure to find the perfect home for your sun-kissed Arizona travels – whether it’s a luxury condo, a spacious townhouse, or a family-sized bungalow with a turquoise-blue outdoor swimming pool.

Sports and sun in Chandler’s outdoors

Start your day with a rejuvenating dip in your Chandler vacation rental pool, before heading out for an early afternoon round of golf at one of the city’s many high-quality clubs. Chandler’s paradisal golf clubs and resorts boast sweeping greens – dotted with shady palms – and regal clubhouses serving fine cuisine. If you’re traveling with sporty teens, let them run wild in the Chandler Skate Park – a huge outdoor complex of smooth concrete ramps and bowls – or at the Paseo Vista Recreation Area, a scrubland park offering archery, disc golf, and walking trails.

Railroad history and pueblo architecture

History buffs can visit the Arizona Railway Museum, a heritage center showcasing perfectly preserved locomotives from across the state’s history, from late 19th century coach cars to retro 1950s dining cars with glamorous lounge rooms. Architecture enthusiasts will find plenty of well-maintained old-world buildings in Chandler, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, such as the colonnade-fronted High School – built in 1900 – and the low-rise stucco San Marcos Hotel, built in 1913. A top historic building is the McCullough-Price House, a 1938 pueblo revival home, which also hosts the Chandler Museum.

Sublime spring sunshine in Chandler

As a desert city in the heart of Arizona, Chandler enjoys year-round sunshine, very little rainfall, and scorching hot summers. The height of summer – June through August – regularly sees temperatures hit the low 100s, which can make outdoor excursions uncomfortable. Spring and fall – March and November respectively – offer pleasant and balmy temperatures in the mid 70s, perfect weather to get out and about on the town, or to sit and sunbathe in your Chandler vacation rental garden. If you visit in March, don’t miss the quirky annual Ostrich Festival, which welcomes parades, carnival rides, live music, and ostrich racing.

Chandler’s desert hills and fascinating wildlife

Chandler is located 25 miles southeast of the city of Phoenix – Arizona’s capital and most populous city. While Chandler is its own city, it acts as a suburb of Phoenix. To the north, Chandler is surrounded by other charming and residential suburban cities – like Gilbert and Mesa – while to the south, Chandler borders the protected Gila River Indian Community reservation. South Mountain Park, 20 miles to the west, is a rocky, vast and rugged municipal urban park with hills, hiking trails, and canyons containing coyotes, jackrabbits, and large chuckwalla lizards with carrot-colored tails.
