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.
