Anthem House Rental Photos and Description

2 BR's, 2 baths w/ a private den sleeps 6

This is a nicely furnished, fully equipped 1821 sf, 2 br, 2 bath home with a private den in Anthem, AZ. The back has a desireable southern exposure featuring an extended patio with a wood burning kiva fireplace with a gas starter. It is located just 35-40 min north of the airport, within 25 min of Scottsdale and numerous golf courses, just 1 1/2 hrs up I17 to Sedona or 3 hrs to the Grand Canyon. Cave Creek is 10-15 min away and Carefree a little bit further. Lake Pleasant is approx 20 min away for an array of water/boating activities. For winter sports Snowbowl in Flagstaff is just 2 hours up I17.

Anthem is a Del Webb planned community, voted the Best Planned Community in America when first built. There is outlet shopping, varied restaurants and grocery stores, many of which are within walking distance. The Community Center/Park with its pool, ponds, tennis courts, walking paths, playground, a railroad train for the kids (and big kids too!) in addition to softball fields and a skate board park will keep everyone in the family busy! The fitness centers and pools in the country club are availble for use at a nominal per use rate (2 week guest passes available to you for use either consecutivley or a week at a time).

The house is a great room plan with an extra large master bedroom featuring a door leading to the patio. 2 inch wood blinds cover all the windows and the carpet is an upgraded quality. The eat-in kitchen features a granite top bar and is fully equipped... even includes an array of spices, oils & condiments one often wishes they had while vacationing without having to purchase a whole container/bottle. The refrigerator has an ice-maker and there is a two temperature zone wine cooler. There are ceiling fans in every room (except the kitchen) as well as the patio.

The den has glass french doors with woven Roman shades... detachable fabric backs for the shades to make the room totally private are available. There is a queen futon in the den along with a small computer desk and chair.

Each bedroom has its own TV as well as the great room. Basic cable is included, along with Internet.

The two golf courses in Anthem Country Club (Persimon and Ironwood) are private but available to the public through TeeOff.com. There are tee times some days through this site and you can book 12 days out.

Please check our calendar for availability before making an inquiry....we do keep it up to date.

About Mary Montgomery & Craig Otter

We purchased the home to use as a vacation home to escape Ohio winters...and as a get away at other times of the year. We love coming out here but find with grandchildren in other states now our time visiting is diminished. So we have decided to open our house up for others to enjoy!

Mary Montgomery & Craig Otter purchased this house in 2003

Why Mary Montgomery & Craig Otter chose Anthem

We have especially enjoyed this home and chose it over others for a variety of reasons. Number one is its southern exposure. Sitting on the back patio in the winter sun reading a book is heaven! The houses behind us are a good 20 feet below us so no rooftops to obstruct the views over the wall. To the right is a wash so the only home we can see from our back yard is the one to our left. This home was originally built/owned by one of the Del Webb mangers when construction began on the community. Consequently, it features many upgrades others of the same model/size do not have: extra large master, upgraded carpet and tile, enclosed den, extended patio and stereo speakers throughout, including the back patio.

What makes this house unique

You can walk to the Persimon fitness center and pool in 5 min. and walk to Safeway, Starbucks, a variety of restaurants and pharmacies in less than 20 min. You can relax on the patio and listen to music while enjoying a fire. You can take day trips to Sedona, Prescott, the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff as well as many fun small towns. There are 2 private golf courses right there available to the public through EZLinks.com. You are close to Phoenix and being at 2000 ft elevation are slightly cooler and better air quality.

Anthem Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months in this beautiful home this past winter. It is exactly as advertised and more. It is in a safe, gate guarded community with all the amenities that you could possible need. The home is bright and sunny and very private. You can reach any location in the Phoenix area valley within an hour and downtown Phoenix is only 30 minutes away. Sky Harbor is 37 minutes and an easy drive. We had two sets of friends stay with us at differently times and both agreed this is one of the nicest homes that have been in. Mary the owner is very responsive and excellent to work with. The kitchen is completely appointed and our friend who is a gourmet cook said he truly enjoyed cooking in it and it had every tool he need to craft his wonderful meals.

We have been coming to the Phoenix area for the past 4 winters and for the combination of price, location, area, you couldn't go wrong. Another plus is the wonderful walking areas both in the golf course area and the huge community park about 3 minutes away in drive time or 15 minutes walking. The Shanghai Club Restaurant has excellent Chinese and be sure to drive the 10 minutes north to New River to the Road Runner Saloon. It is a real Arizona cowboy spot with working ranch people and great food and drink. Don't pass this one up !

Great place. Fully furnished and clean. Owners were very responsive to calls. Perfect location to visit Arizona for hiking. A plus of this location is use of the Country Club for dining, exercise, swimming and relaxing. Daughter and grandson visited for a few days and enjoyed all.

Dream House in Anthem

  • 5 of 5

The description was very accurate regarding location. The photos were what caught our eye but the actual home was even far more beautiful than we could have imagined. The house had everything we needed for our stay. We stayed the first night without having to go to the marked for anything. We found so many activities to keep us well entertained. My husband said it was the best and most relaxing vacation he has ever taken and I must agree. We visited Sedona, Flagstaff, Carefree and Cave Creek. We found dining to be a pleasant experience wherever we ate. The Sushi Bar was fabulous for Chinese cosine. Barro's Pizza had a delicious Gluten Free pizza and Roberto's has great Mexican food. Yes, I would highly recommend this property.

Sunny retreat

  • 5 of 5

After passing by the Anthem Community Park containing ponds,

waterfalls, fountains, and even a water park, and going thru the gates into the

Country Club neighborhood which has wonderfully wide sidewalks bordered by

pristine golf courses containing more ponds, waterfalls and fountains,

surrounded by meticulously landscaped yards with cactus and western plantings, we

were excited to arrive at this lovely home that more than met our expectations. This was our first experience of renting thru VRBO and we were pleased to discover the house looked even better than the great photos of it on the site.

The house is attractively decorated and the furniture is well placed and very comfortable. We slept well on the king size bed and nice linens. Although we didn't cook much, the kitchen was well equipped to do so. We were grateful for the EMPTY walk-in master bedroom closet containing drawers and shoe organizers and plenty of room.

We spent a lot of time in the beautiful Arizona weather on the covered patio overlooking the private, nicely landscaped backyard and enjoyed sharing it with mourning doves, quail and hummingbirds.

You couldn't ask for a nicer area to walk in, safe and beautiful, near plenty of shopping, restaurants, and fun, unique western small towns to explore. We took a hot air balloon ride and a Jeep trip in the area and really enjoyed both. It's a short walk from this house to one of the Country Clubs, which has a lovely pool, golf courses, restaurants and other amenities.

The owners, Mary and Craig, were available by phone or e-mail. The few questions we e-mailed them were promptly answered. We hope to return to this property again in the future.
