About Joann Hauser

My husband and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary this year. We have two adult children, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren that bring so much joy to our lives. We enjoy traveling, riding our motorcycle, and gardening. I'm glad that we are able to share our beautiful Chandler vacation home with others and I get great satisfaction from the many positive comments we receive from our house guests.

Joann Hauser purchased this house in 2003

Why Joann Hauser chose Chandler

We were so pleasantly surprised when we first visited the Ocotillo Golf Resort community in Chandler. We had looked at many homes for sale in Scottsdale and surrounding areas and when we drove around Ocotillo and saw the beautiful golf course, waterways, and lush green lawns year around, we knew we'd found our dream vacation location. My husband took one look at the tropical backyard landscaping, the pebbletec pool and views of the golf course from the veranda of this home and said, "This is it! No need to look further!" We got a surprise bonus when we realized that the location was perfect for us; so convenient to shopping, restaurants, and close proximity to freeways to get around the city.

What makes this house unique

Our beautiful upscale vacation home is located directly on the Ocotillo Golf Resort with fabulous views of our tropical landscaped backyard and pool overlooking the rolling hills of the award winning golf course and miles of waterways throughout the Ocotillo community. The views are beautiful and the location is so peaceful and relaxing, as we are located on a long quiet cul-de-sac with no homes across the street from us. Blue Herron Park is just a half block from our home.

Enjoy sitting on our covered veranda off the master bedroom/bath or watch from the main level covered patio as golfers play right in front of you. Sip your cup of coffee in the morning from either of these locations or enjoy a glass of wine by the fire pit on cool AZ evenings.

There are many of our favorite restaurants and shopping opportunities with 10 minutes or less from our vacation home. The area is a perfect place to walk or ride the bikes we provide to our house guests. It measures 4.3 miles to walk or ride around the entire 18 holes of the golf course. You will find the residents of the Ocotillo community to be especially friendly, as we find the 300 plus days of sunshine brings out the best in everyone around here. Enjoy this slice of heaven!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Joann & Dean - This has been a wonderful month away from the very cold Iowa winter. As this is our last day here, it is nice to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views and watch the golfers. It has been unseasonably warm and gorgeous here!

Your lovely home was a very nice and comfortable place to relax after all of our sightseeing. I found the Ocotillo area so very easy to get around and had everything we needed.

Thank you for letting us spend a wonderful month here!

Winter In AZ!

  • 5 of 5

I feel that there are no words to adequately describe this home and the experience of working with the owners. The very first step of e-mailing and inquiring went so smooth from start to finish! It is a beautiful home in a perfect area....close to the freeways, shopping, eating, and sights! We had grandkids come one week and they enjoyed the pool, even though it was a bit cold (can't stop those Iowa kids!) and friends and family came for a visit too and everything was perfect...nice accommodations for guests and plenty of space. The yard and pool areas were fabulous and of course watching all the golfers go by wasn't too bad either! My husband loved golfing on the Ocotillo course and loved the discount he received as part of the rental property...all in all we had a wonderful time away and I would recommend this location to anyone that is looking for a beautiful home and a beautiful area in AZ!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your excellent review and kind words, Jodi. I fully enjoyed working with both of you, especially knowing that we had our Iowa roots in common. Your timing was perfect to get away from the artic freeze that hit the Midwest. I'm not surprised that you enjoyed the Ocotillo area so much that you and Barry purchased a home while you were there. Like us, I'm sure you looked at a lot of areas and found this slice of heaven to be the best! I hope you have many wonderful experiences with family and friends in your new home. Kind regards, Joann

Fabulous home on Ocotillo golf course.

  • 5 of 5

We rented Joann's home in 2016 and enjoyed it so much we rented it again in 2017. The home is extremely clean and the backyard is fabulous! The backyard has a really nice pool and you can watch the golfers on the Ocotillo golf course. There are also lots of great restaurants close by.

Outstanding location and property

  • 5 of 5

I had the fortunate opportunity to stay in this property for over 2 months due to a job transfer. The property is directly located on a great golf course and has an amazing backyard pool that overlooks the course! It is clear the owners take pride in this house because it is very clean and nicely decorated. I work in downtown phoenix and the location of this property was convenient being less than a few minutes from the freeway. The house sits on a road that loops around the golf-course which made for a great running route. A highlight of our stay was working with Joann. She was highly responsive, friendly and engaged throughout our stay. Should I ever need to rent in Chandler again this is the first place I will look up!

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

It is my pleasure to write a review for this wonderful property. Our reason for visiting Chandler was a family vacation and a celebration of my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary. So many good memories were made and my parents were elated to spend it in this fabulous home. Everything was as stated and the pool was awesome! Joann the owner was very helpful from the very first inquiry.
