About Rebecca Goldman-Rawnsley

I grew up in Arizona and live only a few miles away from our Sunbird home.

Life has blessed me with 2 amazing children, a 22 year old son and an 18 year old daughter.

We love Chandler and you will too.

Rebecca Goldman-Rawnsley purchased this house in 2005

Why Rebecca Goldman-Rawnsley chose Chandler

This home was originally purchased for my mother who very sadly passed away on Valentine's Day in 2013 from cancer at the young age of 66.

She planned to live in this home for the next 20 years and kept it immaculately neat and clean.

The carpeting was installed brand new for her and the home had also been recently repainted.

Many upgrades and improvements were made to the home while getting it ready to become a vacation property.

What makes this house unique

Since this home is a family home and was never intended to be a rental, you will find it equipped with far more items than would be in a typical vacation rental.

Loved our stay in Sunbird. The house was as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is supplied except food. There was a computer and printer, but I used my own laptop with the free wifi. We used the charcoal grill, and the cart garage with a rental cart. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you Rebecca for the use of your beautiful home.

Very happy with Rob and the house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in town to visit family and this was the perfect place to go back to at the end of the day for some rest and relaxation time. The house is exactly like shown in the pictures. And Rob was very professional to deal with. There was a slight mix up regarding the cleaning as people had just left earlier that day and housekeeping was unaware. Rob had everything cleaned rapidly and compensated us a days rent which we thought was very gracious on his part. The clubhouse was very clean and well kept. We were just overall happy with the place and will be back our next time in the area.

Polyestor sheets don't breath

  • 3 of 5

The place is clean, and in a good location, but so many little things that for a $500 (taax deductible) investment , the place could be great. Very thin and polyester sheets are very uncomfortable. I didn't even know they made sheets with that non-breathing material. The hot water is cold in the second shower, and the cold hot. We figured it out, however in the master, the hot water never did fully come on. In the kitchen, knives that I hadn't seen since the 70's... and cupboards full of every mismatched item you can imagine. I'd throw it all out and invest in a new set of knives, glasses, pots/pans, plates, utensils, etc. Very easy, and not overly expensive.

All that said, the A/C worked well, there is a washer and dryer which is nice for the longer visits, the walk in closet was great, and always appreciate plenty of hangers. The visit was fine, but so easy to make it "great".
