About Richard and Deb Loewen

We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We bought this house as a vacation/retirement home but are still to busy to use it a great deal and wanted to let other people enjoy the beauty and warmth of Arizona.

Richard and Deb Loewen purchased this house in 2009

Why Richard and Deb Loewen chose Anthem at Merrill Ranch

This is a beautiful quiet neighbourhood with a fantastic rec centre and golf course.

What makes this house unique

We love that the house backs on to an open space with no backyard neighbours.

Winter escape paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was a very lovely home that was perfect for our month-long stay. Great location, and we loved all the paths throughout the desert that we used daily. Richard and Deb were very prompt with any concerns that we had during our stay.

We look forward to returning to this area and renting this home again in the future.

Beautiful, relaxing, well-maintained, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property truly felt like "home". Everything was clean and well-maintained with every amenity we could have wanted. The pool heats up nice and toasty, too, which is a huge plus in December! I had family come over for Christmas dinner and everyone commented on how beautiful and comfortable the property is and they wish they could stay! My father even saw the neighborhood resident road runner! :-) Truly a gem in the desert, walking distance to shopping and food, with a nice neighbor to boot! Highly recommend!

Great place. Great area. Great weather.

  • 4 of 5

We already knew that as we have friends who have homes in this community. Lots of things to do within the community through the red center.. Hiking group, pickleball, tennis, golf, trivia, cards, line dancing etc.

The house had everything we needed. Very comfortable. Good instructions regarding the use of the pool, TV, etc. Would stay here again!!!

Completely satisfied with first rental experience

  • 5 of 5

Such an easy process. The home was perfect. The one thing to keep in mind that threw me for a loop is the second payment goes to Canada, which most banks charge additional fees for. Other than that, the week couldn't have been better.

Owner's Response: Hi Gaylen. Thanks for the review. As far as your payments go, they would have both gone to the same bank account which is actually a U.S. based bank out of Georgia and not Canada. I spoke with VRBO Customer Service and the additional fees are actually charged by them. They have a 3 percent fee for all transactions so this would have been charged by VRBO for both your transactions. This is something that we ourselves have no control of. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you keep us in mind if you return to the area. Sincerely, Richard and Deb Loewen

Very well equipped home in a quiet residential neighbourhood & very private back yard to enjoy pool

  • 5 of 5

Very attentive owners who add new features to their well equipped home annually with great attention to comfort outdoors & new technology indoors. Two bicycles are provided for guest use to explore the surrounding area. Guests receive instant responses during their stay if they ask the owners any questions via e-mail. The outdoor space is very private as the block wall fenced back yard of the home looks onto a very large nature area with natural desert tree & shrub growth guaranteeing peaceful privacy. You often can view wild rabbits & the occasional road runner if you look out over the block wall. The lovely back yard swimming pool provides a welcome fitness opportunity & and a way to cool down when the desert sun is shining at its midday peak intensity. The back yard is beautifully landscaped & has a cozy natural gas above ground fire feature for socializing in the evening. Safeway grocery store is easy to access by walking or cycling the desert pathways or by a quick drive. The well equipped kitchen allows guests to prepare home cooked meals and a large BBQ is also available for great outdoor cooking experiences as well. The master bedroom with walk-in closet & attached full ensuite bathroom provides luxurious space. There is second separate full bathroom. In addition there is a comfortable second bedroom. As well there is a very useful third room containing a Murphy wall bed & also a desk. This room is great to use as a working area if you need to keep up to date while away from home during your vacation. We feel fortunate to have discovered this wonderful home with amazing owners & so we have been booking to return annually.
