About Richard and Deb Loewen

We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We bought this house as a vacation/retirement home but are still to busy to use it a great deal and wanted to let other people enjoy the beauty and warmth of Arizona.

Richard and Deb Loewen purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard and Deb Loewen chose Florence

This is a beautiful quiet neighbourhood with a fantastic rec centre and golf course.

What makes this house unique

We love that the house backs on to an open space with no backyard neighbours.

Beautiful Single Story Home With Swimming Pool And View Lot
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

Outside of the house was picture perfect! The sitting area in the front was so inviting.

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing with every comfort you could think of. It was impeccably clean and furnished wonderfully. The backyard was beautiful and we, being from Michigan in December, absolutely loved the amazing pool. Feel it must be mentioned that as soon as I stepped out the backdoor there's a veiw of desert plants, cacti, and small mountain. There were birds all around almost always and everything combined made such a pleasant setting. Everything went smoothly for our stay which is always a reliever when anyone's on vacation. It was so relaxing not haveing to worry about a thing. Overall, the place was perfect, really everything we were looking for.

Wonderful, quiet and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and this home was just what we needed! Very Clean , well stocked, and very comfortable! It felt like home 😎 The pool was perfect, so refreshing after our round of golf! I enjoyed floating around reading my books. The pool floats were awesome. It was so nice to put the car in the garage. Everything we needed to know was in the guest book.

Communication with the owners was easy and they were very available if needed. We definitely would stay here again . Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, we really appreciate your hospitality. Kelly and Mark

Great House and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Desert Blossom Way! The house was perfect for our family of four, although we could have easily fit another person or two if needed. It was decorated very nicely with soft, comfortable beds and a fully-stocked kitchen. Our 9-year-old daughter had a blast at the big community pool and waterpark (just $5 per person for guests). We had two questions while we were there...the owners were easily accessible by phone, very kind and took care of us right away. This is exactly how a VRBO experience should be! Thanks so much for everything.

My family and I were visiting family who just moved to the area and needed a place to stay. There weren't many choices of hotels so I we opted for this lovely home. Back story...this is our second time renting a vacation home and our first experience did not go well at all so I was holding my breath days before we checked in.

First of all, coordinating with the Richard was a breeze. He responded to all my questions within hours. Information on how to access things were specific and simple.

When we arrived, the home was cool as the AC was set at a comfortable temperature, everything was in its place, the place was spotless. My husband was impressed with how the place was organized and well maintained, my sister (who visited) was impressed with the cleanliness of the floor since her 10 month old was crawling everywhere, and my parents really felt comfortable in this home. I especially liked how they kitchen was well stocked for cooking.

The sliding door to the backyard and pool automatically closes on its own and requires you pull a latch found towards the top in order to open it. I didn't have to worry about the little ones getting to the backyard without us knowing. The garage was full of stuff for swimming, e.g. Floaters, water guns, noodles, and pool rafts.

The pool and backyard was very clean and very relaxing to just hang out.

The location is perfect because there's a grocery store, gas station, bank, and hospital 5 mins away.

The only thing that wasn't perfect was the lip stick found on some of the cups and wine glasses, but that was overlooked because everything else trumps that faux pas.

Thank you for making our stay memorable.

Owner's Response: Hi Kimberly, Thanks so much for the positive review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Very sorry about the wine glasses (I guess the dishwasher does not always get all the lipstick!) I believe those glasses were probably washed in the dishwasher by previous renters and then put back in the cabinets without being checked carefully by them. Our cleaners are very meticulous (as you mentioned in the cleanliness of the floors) but would not be looking at dishes already put away. We strive to keep the house in tip top shape for all our renters. Sincerely, Richard and Deb Loewen
