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. Pickle ball is big here along with Bocce for the non golfers or the young at heart.

WILLIAM S purchased this house in 2010

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+

Merrill Ranch Sun City Jewel

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting from VRBO and in Merrill Ranch. We were extremely pleased. The house is perfect with everything you need for your home away from home. We would highly recommend this house. The property manager and owner are very responsive if an issue comes up. We would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: This is also our vacation home and we like to keep it well equipped for a weekend getaway or a month long leisure stay. We like to think that a happy customer is a return customer. The Merrill Ranch resort area has an excellent action center and a coordinator who is always keeping visitors on their toes with new and innovative activities and interactive ideas. Pleasant weather mixed with pleasant people makes for an excellent combination in this Sun City resort area.

Wonderful Villa in Arizona Resort Community

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our month long stay in this beautiful home. The house is spacious and well designed for daily living. The home is well appointed, with very comfortable beds (I slept better here than at home). The big screen TV is great. The owner is responsive to any and all questions and concerns. The community and and the amenity center are superb. The people in the neighborhood and wonderful, and we had the opportunity to make some new friends. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, after a few days, it felt like our home and we did not want to leave. Perhaps it is time to purchase a home in this community.

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!
