Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

It is rare to find a rental property with all of the comforts of home but my wife and I found it at Anthem at Merrill Ranch Parkside. The house was fully furnished including a well equipped kitchen that will satisfy any cook. The master bedroom was very spacious as well as the master bathroom and walkin closet. The owners arranged for us to have a visitors pass at the Parkside Activity Center. We were there every day and enjoyed immensely tennis and pickle ball as well as all of the inside amenities. The location was perfect and within five minutes of some very wonderful restaurants. The owners were extremely accommodating from beginning to end. There could not have been a better environment for us and we plan to be back for many years to come.

We are a group of retired and soon to be retired family and friends. We were very excited to be afforded the opportunity to stay in this lovely home that is well kept, clean, comfortable and roomy enough for four couples. The kitchen is well furnished with quality appliances, beds were very comfortable especially after a full day of site seeing. The living space allows for conversation in one area as well as a big screen TV in another. Not only are the owners wonderful to work with, the Property Manager was awesome and available to us on our schedule. We enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful built-in pool soaking up the sunshine. Our time in Arizona flew by. We were sad to leave. This home is highly recommended. We look forward to returning again.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

In March and the first two weeks of April/2015 we had the privilege of renting this beautiful and amazingly spacious 4 bedroom home in Merrill Ranch. It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the renowned Poston Butte golf course which is also a fantastic place to eat! The living room/kitchen/sitting room (which we affectionately called our tea room) are all open to each other and very conducive to entertaining. From the moment we walked into the house from the moment we sadly closed the door at the end of our rental, the attentive owners Cam & Barb anticipated our every need. On site manager and maintenance people were a five minute golf cart ride away and came very quickly when called. The house itself is well stocked with all the kitchen, bathroom, laundry and cleaning supplies imaginable. The backyard heated pool is a glorious 86 degrees complete with floating chairs and deck loungers - a little bit of heaven for us cold Northern Canadians! The gas barbecue and dining table and chairs for six add to the great outdoor experience. The location half way between Phoenix and Tucson allow for day excursions in either direction but there is plenty to do in the Florence area itself. You can explore historic Florence 7 minutes away, tour Box Canyon on an ATV 10 minutes away or even visit St. Anthony's Greek Monastery in the middle of the desert 20 minutes away - there is something for everyone! If you are active there are beautiful walking trails just outside your door and the San Tan Mountain trails are a short car ride away. For the more adventurous a climb to Picacho Peak 40 minutes away or simulated parachuting in the wind tunnels at Eloy will not disappoint!! Of course the beautiful and well planned Anthem community itself offers a myriad of facilities to enjoy and take advantage of. We can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay - it was perfect for two retired couples wanting to escape the cold and be pampered and well looked after. We are all looking forward to returning to what has truly become our home away from home - you simply can't go wrong renting this comfortable and well maintained property that the owners obviously take great pride and joy in sharing with others.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the very positive review! We agree that the heated pool is heaven! So nice to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the house and felt so comfortable there. That is exactly what we like to hear from our guests!! Glad you enjoyed the neighbourhood and were able to try out the lovely new restaurant at the golf course. Anthem at Merrill Ranch has so much to offer and it is so conveniently located. There are so many wonderful and unique places close by to visit and explore. There is truly something for everyone whether it is in the neighbourhood, the surrounding area or just enjoying the warmth and sunshine in the backyard by the pool. We look very forward to having you back to stay at our home again!

Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This home was second to none. Very well stocked, clean and exceeded our expectations. We were able to access everything we needed within a 45 minute drive and had the privilege of being out of the "Big City" there are tons of things to do and the homeowners have a great "Binder" of favourite places and things to do. We will deffinately be back to check some more of these off our list!

We are pleased that you enjoyed the binder of things to do and places to eat and we will continue to update it in the future. So many great places to visit! We will be very happy to have you back for another stay!

Great home for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two winter vacations now at this property. The house and backyard are awesome. Heated pool was great especially having grandchildren and even older adults visiting with us. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed and more. It is very spacious. We had plenty of room as we did have guests from time to time. It is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Close to all amenities, restaurants, parks, playgrounds, walking trails and the golf course. We would highly recommend this property. We look forward to staying in this home in the future.
