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.

Patti Poe purchased this house in 2012

Why Patti Poe chose Arizona

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.

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.

Great location near adult pool, clubhouse/large pool, hot tub and golf course. The villa has ample room, was nicely furnished and very clean. They left a welcoming basket of items to give us time to get to the grocery store that was close to Sunbird Resort. The covered patio was quiet, private and a great spot for coffee in the morning and meals during the day. Chandler is a great area in the Valley and not that far from major site-seeing areas. The clubhouse offers many activities, dinners and some day trips for those interested. Patti and Barry are very proactive with their visitors and available if an issue were to arise. When we arrived, they welcomed us, explained how to use things and where things were--when they say you only need to bring your clothes and personal items, they mean it! The rates are reasonable and you won't be disappointed if you decide to stay at this villa-we feel lucky we found it on VRBO.

Immaculate & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Patti was an absolute pleasure to work with from our first inquiry to our arrival! Patti checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed which was appreciated! She even had a basket of fresh fruit and snacks waiting for us. The home is immaculate, has a wonderful kitchen to cook in and the couches and beds were all comfortable. We loved the location with just a short walk to the clubhouse and pool. We also enjoyed the carport to keep our car cool during our stay. It was perfect for our family of four. Thank you so much Patti!

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

On arriving we didn't know what to expect, but we were highly pleased with the home, clean, spacious and very homely, just what we needed. The location was ideal it took minutes to get to grocery, shopping, diner, and other places, everything we needed was provided by the owner. Highly recommend this home and the location. Will be using this home away from home again.

Wonderful Vacation Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I lived in this very nice villa in the beautiful Sunbird Golf Resort. Neither of us play golf, but it was apparent to us that the golf related amenities as well as the other leisure related facilities were very nice.

Before arrival, the owner provided special assistance in receiving and storing an order of medical related supplies. Upon arrival, we were met by Patti Poe, the owner, and were very graciously received. We were immediately impressed with how the villa was furnished with homey, not commercial condo type, furniture and how clean and freshly painted the interior appeared. Our first impressions became our lasting impressions as we lived there for three weeks.

The gated resort is easy in and out with excellent security and lighting. While major streets surround the resort, it is very peaceful and quiet at all hours, day or night.

In summary, we were very happy with our experience in this villa and resort location. We definitely will seek to rent this same villa again when we return to the Phoenix/Chandler area.
