About Deanna

We currently live in Montana and bought this home as a future home for us. We are avid golfers and love the Poston Butte golf course and the Johnson Ranch Golf course nearby. We hope that whomever rents this will enjoy this home and community as much as we do.

Deanna purchased this house in 2012

Why Deanna chose Florence

We chose Parkside at Anthem Merrill Ranch because of the small town feel. The safe, warm and active community. And all the golf courses in Arizona

We also have grandchildren that love the waterparks, fishing ponds and all the kids activities this community has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful scenery, clean feel to this small community, walking trails around the homes

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house last minute to visit family over the New Year's holiday. The location was perfect for us. Just a few minutes from our family in Queen Creek. The house is large – five bedrooms. We found it very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was fully stocked. We just needed to buy the food. The backyard is nice with an outdoor table and chairs and a relaxing water feature. We had rain for a couple days of our state so we ended up staying in and playing games and watching movies. The pool at the community center was not heated during our visit but I imagine it would be wonderful during the summertime. The game room at the community center was very nice and fun for our kids. We would definitely stay here again. The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating to our last-minute request.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for several adults staying for a week for an event nearby. Large enough and plenty of space for everyone and yet a good set up for hanging out and socializing as well. Water fountain in the back yard was delight. House was very clean and well stock with kitchen items and towels/sheets. Instructions were easy to follow and the addition of a lockbox made everyone's lives easier as we didn't have to coordinate the comings and goings and key access. Thank you again Deanna!!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

We made this house our home for a month! And wanted to stay longer!!!!!! It is a beautiful home with a wonderful fountain in the back where you can relax and enjoy your morning coffee to the soothing sound of the water fountain. We enjoyed watching road runners going along the brick wall that enclosed the property. It is a very comfortable home and has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The grocery store is close along with some nice places to eat. Its a short trip into Florence where there are a lot of places to eat and browse around town. It is a very quiet neighborhood. Our grandchildren want to know when we are going back. We definitely will return!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We came to AZ for the annual family get together and rented the house for the week. We loved the easy access to groceries, banking, and a wonderful Italian restaurant, as well as the golf course. The location provides access to Phoenix and Tucson with a moderate amount of drive time. The house was very clean and comfortable, but our favorite part was the water feature in the backyard. We would sit on the patio every day and listen to the sound of the water and enjoy watching the birds stopping by for a drink. The owners were very helpful and easy to work with, answering our questions very promptly. This is a great place to stay.

Daughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married at the Winery in Florence just before Christmas and we needed two homes for our large family to stay in and avoid commuting back and forth to Phoenix. We were thrilled to find this beautiful home in Merrill Ranch just a few miles north of Florence. The house was perfectly clean and accommodating giving us the sleeping space we needed. I have no complaints at all, but the wifi kept cutting out over the course of the weekend. NO fault of the owner on that note. We would gladly stay here again.

Perfect, Clean, Cozy House for AZ Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our trip to AZ. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful, and was very close to a grocery store with a Starbucks inside; there were also a couple of small restaurants nearby to grab a bite to eat outside of the home. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. were very clean and the house was very spacious. It was the perfect number of bathrooms and bedrooms for the 7 adults that we had in our group during the stay all needing to be ready around the same time each day, and was only an hour away from PHX. Additionally, for any golfers, there is a golf course very close by, and for runners/walkers/etc., you can find a very scenic route toward the grocery store with a few running trails nearby (and beautiful sunrises!). The instructions provided by Larry and Deanna for getting into the house and things to do before leaving were very informative and helpful, as well. This was a very enjoyable stay, MUCH better than the alternative of staying in a hotel - we would definitely stay at the house again!! Thank you again for sharing your house with us, Larry and Deanna!!
