A conveniently located and comfortable home on a quiet street. We enjoyed the backyard patio and secluded backyard with brick wall enclosure. We were able to leave our dog in the backyard without worry. The owner's agent was fabulous to work with. The two large bathrooms were quite enjoyable. The master bedroom had a large walk-in closet which more than met our needs. The kitchen was spacious. The location was near many attractions for us. Traffic was minimal. We are renting again next year.

Perfect Alaskan Vacation

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, spacious, meticulously clean home. The home was beautifully decorated and furnished, and felt new. The furniture was very comfortable and cozy. The home was fully equipped with everything you might need, just like home. The neighborhood is was quiet and very safe for early morning runs and late evening walks. Merrill Ranch in Florence is like a little secret, no hustle bustle, no heavy traffic and no noise, its so peaceful. Safeway grocery store is within minutes.

We enjoyed side trips to Sedona and Tucson. Upon arriving at the home we were so surprised to find a plateful of delicious muffins, a wonderful treat. Thank you very much. I hope to be back very soon.
