60 year old close to retirement who is itching to enjoy life after a 40 hour work week. Enjoys golf with his wife and all the outdoors that Phoenix has to offer.

We love the slower pace of this area - which is populated with friendly people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great resort area...wonderful amenities for the retired and not so retired folks. Saskatchewan couple who wanted to see what winter was like without snow....MAGNIFICENT !!! Home is very cozy and well decorated with all the amenities ...we were pleased with the accomodations and all pictures are accurate descriptions of the brand new home. We relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful resort and its facilities. Safeway is almost next door and small restaurants served excellent meals. We loved our stay and the owners were very helpful with any questions we had. There were no dissappoinments on this vacation. We eventually plan on buying into this resort area. It has been well planned and exhibits a high quality neighborhood. Thanks AAAA+

Comfy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

William provides a very clean and well appointed rental home. He is an attentive owner and quickly remedies any problems that arise. Beds are super comfortable! Kitchen is well stocked for cooking needs. We didn't use the gas fire pit, but enjoyed having lunch on the patio. It was a very pleasant stay. We love Merrill Ranch.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house for vacation and it was perfect in every way. The house is lovely and was so well appointed and comfortable that we felt very much at home. I just loved the labels on everything! It allowed us to get our bearings immediately. The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. In fact, they rearranged their own schedule to allow us to extend our stay. I would say that we plan to stay in this house again but we enjoyed our entire experience so much we bought a house in the same development!

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 month and the house was perfect. The house was fully furnished, the kitchen had all the staples and the layout of the house was efficient. Even the light switches were labeled. Our experience could not have been better. Excellent neighborhood and incredible golf course!

Loved this Sun City home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home in February 2014. The home was very comfortable, well appointed and the fireplace was a real plus for the clear, cool desert evenings. The Sun City Anthem development was just what we were looking for. Great for walking and biking and wonderfully friendly neighbors.

We were able to walk to a nearby coffee shop each morning and were close to some great hiking in the San Tan Regional Park.
