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
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.
Beautiful scenery, clean feel to this small community, walking trails around the homes
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.
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.
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!!
This house is definitely worth staying in. It's on a quiet street, has a nice big backyard, and is close to
shopping center. Very relaxing for a vacation. The house is well-kept and beds are very comfortable. We had a
great time here and would definitely recommend it to everyone. So much nicer than staying in a hotel.
I want to thank Larry and Deanna for sharing their house. Pictures don't do it justice.
Thanks again!!!!! Would love to come back again.
Our family headed to Arizona for a family wedding. There were six of us staying in the house including two young children. It was great! We took a bedroom that was separate from the other bedrooms. This gave our daughter, son-in-law and children the privacy they needed in the other part of the house. They were able to put a fold-away crib in the walk-in closet which became a perfect bedroom for their baby daughter. Definitely, having the washer and dryer were a bonus to staying in a hotel!!
This is a wonderful house for anyone wanting to stay with family or a larger group!! It was clean and well stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils, ... Close to amenities. We enjoyed the surrounding scenery. Definitely, our stay was nowhere near long enough!! We'll have to make a longer trip next time!
My husband and I stayed a month in this home. Because we were there a month, we were able to purchase for $75 a membership to the athletic facilities. Wonderful pool and gym with great hours.
The owners were very responsive to our needs and the house had everything you needed.
We didn't actually need all of the space this house has, but the great neighborhood and reasonable rental price made it a "must have"!
Recommend this to anyone that wants to get away and explore this part of the country. You can hop in the car and drive in all directions !
