We hope you will fall in love with visiting this part of the country, and look forward each and every time you plan a return visit, just as we have.

We currently reside in Canada and make this a frequent vacation spot for relaxation, we have come to know many of the residents and have made a large number of friends here. We are three owners who are all great friends.

Why the Owner Chose Anthem at Merrill Ranch, Florence, AZ, USA:
The home is located in the master planned Del Webb community of Anthem at Merrill Ranch Parkside, annexed with the town of Florence, Arizona. This property was chosen for a variety of reasons, the biggest reason being the warm Arizona Sun, we love the heat! Within the community is the 45,000 square foot state of the art community centre that houses basketball courts, fully equipped gym, climbing wall, outdoor pool and kids big splash waterpark like no other you've ever seen, outdoor tennis courts, and kids spray park and catch and release fishing lake. All of these amenities are within a couple minutes walking distance! Recently built is the new Florence Hospital with full emergency room and medical facilities, the Anthem Marketplace with a Safeway, McDonalds, Gas Bar, Bank, Restaurants, and other services that are a 15 minute walk, or short drive by car. Fire Department only a few blocks away, and the community is home to a large number of people that work in law enforcement. The community has provided us a sense of belonging, and a very safe and welcome place to visit and live in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This place is a little off the beaten path and that makes for a very relaxing and peaceful vacation. There is a multitude of activities available that range from day trips to the Grand Canyon, to the Aircraft Museum in Tucson, and right on down to the community activities that range from evening gatherings to weekend festivals. Bring your imagination with you and you can enjoy outdoor activities to your hearts content, the weather usually cooperates and delivers the most enjoyable experiences imaginable. Arizona is a haven for the golf enthusiast, which is also one of the main reasons that lead us to choose this place. There are over 50 top notch golf courses within a half hour drive from this house, the closest being right in the community managed by world renowned Troon Golf at Poston Butte Golf Club, designed by Gary Panks!
