We very much enjoyed our stay. Villa was exceptionally clean inside and out. Secluded patio w views of mountains and early morning wildlife. Pool area was clean and inviting with shrubs for privacy. Any questions I had prior to arrival or with making arrangements were answered in a timely. We will definitely be back!

The owner, Karl, was very responsive and easy to work with when making the reservation. The property was exactly as advertised. Very clean, lots of linens, towels, etc. The kitchen was well equiped and lots of the little things that made our stay very easy, coffee filters, paper towels, dishwasher soap, etc. This is a large two bedroom unit and made the stay for three people very comfortable. The highlight was the animal life in the back yard, quail, desert boars, coyote, and yes, a bobcat too!! The unit was very convienent to Carefree and great restuarants. This unit is perfect if golf is on your schedule, many excellent courses just a few minutes away. I would certainly contact this owner again on our next trip to Carefree.

Everything promised and everything pictured was just what we received. Although not shown on the website, the kitchen area is perfect as well. Very nice furnishings, well appointed. Bedrooms are huge and separated enough to afford total privacy. Day trips to Sedona, Flagstaff and Grand Canyon are easy from this location. The owner and rental manger were always available for questions and assistance, and both very pleasant and easy to deal with. We will definitely stay in this unit again when coming back to Carefree!

We are frequent travelers, and have stayed in many properties, but we have never stayed anywhere that was as clean as this villa. Extremely nicely furnished and decorated with higher end furniture, artwork and bedding. The swimming pool in this complex was one of the nicest we have enjoyed anywhere, including those at some very expensive all-inclusive resorts. Carefree and Cave Creek are full of great restuarants, shopping, quirky bars, and a couple of excellent stables, if you enjoying riding. The four of us represented 3 generations and we all found things to do together that were loads of fun. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Just two complaints/recommendations; 1.) the unit needs a stereo system that is compatible with an MP3 player. 2.) The air conditioning wall register needs a plastic deflector so that it isn't blasting on the heads of the two queen beds in the second bedroom.

We totally enjoyed this property, Karl and Mike were great to work with, and it was immaculate when we arrived. The interior design is amazing and extremely spacious. Everything was done well. We loved it and would definitely go back. I was surprised at how much Carefree has grown. There are lots of restaurants, grocery stores, and activities. And, if you take a drive down either Scottsdale Road or Pima you will find more shops and restaurants long before reaching the 101. We loved the Soul Cafe for breakfast, Rancho Manana for lunch, and hiked at Pinnacle Peak in the Troon North area.

This property is exquisite. I found it to be luxurious (great linens and bedding!), really well decorated in the southwest style, peaceful, comfortable and large. The two separate living areas provided privacy, as did the outdoor terrasses. The internet access was fully functional. The pool steps away was wonderful when we wanted to go for a dip or a bit of relaxing. I took loads of photos of the blooming flowers in the Carefree gardens with my new DSLR camera. We enjoyed lots of day trips, including Sedona, Walnut Park, Tonto National Park and the Grand Canyon, and we hiked a few mountains including the beautiful Black Mountain a few minutes away. I didn't even mind the coyotes howling at the full moon around 4AM one night. Even saw a banjo-playing cowboy singing Edith Piaf in french in a saloon!! Anyways, highly recommend this unit and Arizona altogether. Enjoy!

Carefree Thanksgiving Vacation
Carefree Thanksgiving Vacation
My husband and I rented Karl's unit with another couple. The unit was clean, spacious, and very relaxing. Furniture was upscale and comfortable, as were the beds/linens. The home really does have everything you might need while visiting. We enjoyed the Carefree and Cave Creek areas - there is plenty to do between unique local restaurants and shops, as well as several parks in the area with nice hiking trails. The temps were in the low to mid 70's, so the hot tub and heated pool (generally around 85 degrees) were nice on the warmer days. It was very easy to pick up and drop off the key, and it's about a 35 minute drive to the Sky Harbor Airport. There were many dogs in the complex (Its pet friendly in most cases), so there was some barking in the early morning, etc., that could annoy. Internet access was also weak and intermittent. Although we were just checking email and surfing, it could be a problem if you absolutely needed to get work done while on vacation. We also used the fitness center up the road (by the tennis courts) and it had all the basic equipment to get a workout. Excellent dinner at Tonto's Bar and Grill, worth the trip just for the cuisine! I would recommend this unit, Karl was a pleasure to work with!

Our family travelled from Canada for our son's destination wedding in Scottsdale. From the initial contact with Karl to our refund deposit arriving in an extremely timely manner, we cannot say enough about our experience. The unit is really well furnished and equipped; the location relative to the pool is excellent; and Carefree is a lovely community, away from the tone of both Scottsdale and Phoenix. Family and friends were staying in other units in this complex and from experience, we can most certainly say that this unit far surpassed other units in quality, decor and location. Thank you Karl for all your assistance with a wonderful wedding week in your Carefree home!

About the owner: My wife and I grew up in the Mid-West, but we LOVE the mountains and climate of Arizona. Ever since we visited Carefree we've been going back to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we found Carefree to be the perfect place to escape the cold. A family friendly destination and golfers’ paradise, we found Carefree’s gentle climate perfect for enjoying the outdoors and all the thrilling variety of local attractions and activities. There was no question; we had to invest in our own 'Carefree Home.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Arizona has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too!
Why the Owner Chose Carefree:
We chose the gated community of the Villa’s at Carefree Resort & Spa because it comes with great resort amenities and its proximity to some of Arizona’s finest fairways & greens, restaurants, shopping and outdoor diversions. Here you will find a concierge service, multiple heated swimming pools, spa, lighted tennis courts, and fine or casual dinning a short amble away.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our favorite restaurant is Tontos Bar and Grill at Rancho Manana Golf Course in the town of Cave Creek just minutes away. Rancho Manana offers 18 holes of some of the finest golf the area has to offer… not to mention that Tontos is rated one of the best restaurants in the entire valley. It is a great place to dine outdoors and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. The two courses at the Boulders is another favorite. There is always something going on in this picturesque resort community for the whole family to enjoy.
