Very very nice and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. Very well maintained and clean. Everything we needed was supplied. Bedding and towels all very nice. Owners so nice too. We loved the location since we were going to do things in Tucson as well as Phoenix area. We felt very safe. Anthem at Merril Ranch is a well maintained area.

Thanks again Gary and Kathleen

We stayed January, February and March of 2016

Beautiful house, great quiet family location, very accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

Gary's house is a beautiful 4+ bedroom home. There are only 3 beds, and the sofa is not a sleeper. One bed is King size and 2 are queen size. There are 2-1/2 baths. The master bedroom has one of these baths ensuite. There is a full laundry and 2-car garage for use too. Safe street parking immediately in front of the house. There are two empty bedrooms. The house is a very large 2-story with a large open kitchen-dining-living room area. The backyard is very private surrounded by a stuccoed wall. It has a huge beautiful patio, gas grill, and plenty of seating for outdoor lounging/dining. The home was VERY clean, fresh, and well-maintained.

The home is located in a beautiful, well-kept, single family home, suburban, and very quiet neighborhood. The area is about 1 hour south of Phoenix or 1 hour north of Tucson. There is a shopping/services area just 2-3 blocks from the house with a very nice large grocery store and lots of restaurants. There are also plenty of sidewalks and bike paths reachable directly from the house. There is plenty to do in the area. One can google to find out. Plenty of hiking, family fun, golf, shopping, mountain climbing, and historical sites close by. Our favorite restaurant was the Queen Creek Olive Mill.

Gary was very easy to communicate with and took care of everything. He was reachable by phone if we needed anything. But everything was taken care of, and we didn't have any needs while we were there. The kitchen was very well stocked with ample cooking utensils. We made/ate most of our meals at the house, and even did some Christmas baking. We have relatives living in Florence, so this was perfect for us. We could be close to them, yet have our own place to stay for away time too.

Spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for one month while waiting for our new home to be finished. The house was much larger than we expected. The house was very clean and maintained (no broken items). If you stay I strongly recommend paying the extra fee for use of the recreation facilities, you will not be disappointed.
