About Bob Kemp

We are Canadian professionals who enjoy our Arizona property 4 or 5 times a year. When we are not there, we invite you to rent from us and experience what Arizona and Anthem Country Club have to offer. We offer an affordable price for the value you will receive!

Bob Kemp purchased this house in 2011

Why Bob Kemp chose Anthem

We searched for properties in Arizona for over a year. And we ended up back at the first community we saw! Anthem is great because it's 15 -20 minutes away from Phoenix but has the charm and character of a small town. People are friendly and everything you need is within walking distance or a short drive away. The Country Club at Anthem, with all its amenities, can only be described as a resort-like community. We love it here and hope you do too!

What makes this house unique

Morning walks, desert wildlife, backyard bbqs, golfing, high end gym facilities, spa, steam room, sauna, swimming, hot tub, shopping, Happy Hour every Friday !

Guestbook comments from the owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a warm, comfortable month of March in Bob and Norma's Arizona home. We love the Anthem community and all that it has to offer and their place suited our needs perfectly. We got a good feeling the moment we walked in.The warm and inviting Southwest colors and decor made us feel right at home in the wonderful Arizona sunshine.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back in a heartbeat!

Fair stay

  • 3 of 5

We spent 6 weeks in this lovely home. Closet space is limited as the owners have a closet reserved and the others are pretty full of "stuff". We had to empty 2 shelves in the small pantry to be able to put our groceries away, same for the refrigerator...many items were way past expiration! We ended up using the owners' toiletries because there was no space in the cabinets. Also, do not be in a hurry to get your deposit back, took 3 e-mails and 2 calls.

Owner's Response: Hi. Thanks for the feedback. We do advise guests that our owner closet is for our use. The larger walk in closet is reserved for our guests as well as the chest of drawers in the master suite. The back bedroom is fairly open although there are a few items stored there. The middle bedroom is a den converted to bedroom as discussed at the time you viewed the property in person. As this is our vacation home, we keep food stores in the pantry for our use and we welcome guests to help themselves to what's there in addition to the vast array of condiments and spices. We always ask our cleaners to thoroughly go through fridge on guest departure and will reinforce this with them again. Lastly, there was a mixup of email addresses on return of deposit. We always refund within one week. My apologies. Thanks again for your feedback.

An Excellent Vacation Spot

My wife Catherine and I had a very enjoyable stay at your rental home. The community sports complex is fantastic, the clubhouse excellent and the area beautiful. Your home is well maintained and offers many nice amenities. We feel very comfortable about recommending your property to others.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home as we made our way back from Las Vegas to Palm Springs stopping for some golf in Arizona. Truly if you want some good golf this is a great location. Phoenix and Scottsdale can get so busy and this location was very convenient. House is beautiful and nicely decorated. Cute little back yard where you can even practice your putting. Bob and Norma where great hosts. Thank you so much. Sorry for the late night call - forgot about the 3 hour time change.

A most comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

A very nicely outfitted home at a good price. We enjoyed the back yard patio and the positioning of the lot, allowing an expansive view, rather than an enclosed setting. The property presented as promised, which is always a relief when arriving. Missed not having garage access, but the rental price was adjusted fairly to account for this inconvenience. We'd return in a heartbeat.
