This was my first experience with VRBO; and I'm please to say it was a very positive one.
This home in Sun Lakes was ideally located on the fifth fairway of the Ironwood golf course; great views of the course, close to the country club, and conveniently located to the north entrance of this gated community, which made getting around a Chandler and the surrounding area a breeze. Ironwood is also the only area in Sun lakes with sidewalks, which is a plus for anyone who likes to get their cardio exercise walking outside.
This home is on a cul-de-sac so there is very little traffic, it's very quiet and peaceful. The back patio has a nice gas grill, patio table/chairs to enjoy the awesome AZ weather. Some of the most enjoyable times (when not on the golf course) were spent grilling or just relaxing on the patio and watching the golfers. For avid golfers, this venue is pretty special. The home is furnished with everything you need for an enjoyable stay to include a golf cart. The house is maintained well, everything worked, there were no problems/issues encountered - period. The house was organized well, the kitchen lacked for nothing, the Wi-Fi, and two big screen TVs with satellite were gems. The owners and the local manager were not needed during the stay, but discussions with them prior to arriving at Sun Lakes were very helpful, they answered or clarified all questions. They communicated clearly and accurately ensuring no ambiguity. The house has a binder with instructions for the home, information on the local area, and checklists to get visitors settled into the house and Sun Lakes, it was very helpful. I appreciated the departure checklist which let me know what their expectations were for check-out.
To recap: Very nice home, well maintained/managed, great location, no issues during the vacation, and awesome golf! I would definitely recommend this house for a vacation destination.
