Carefree condo description
Steve & Joanna welcome you to the Carefree Casita located in Carefree, on the northern border of Scottsdale, Arizona. Carefree is the 'Home of Cowboys and Caviar, Where the Old West Meets the New'. You will encounter the vast Sonoran Desert with forests of saguaro cacti, beautiful mountain vistas of the Tonto National Forest, and giant boulder formations.
The Carefree Casita is located adjacent to the grounds of the Carefree Resort and Villas. While not directly affiliated with the Resort, the Carefree Casita shares the same lovely location with the amenities of the area. The Carefree Casita is a convenient launching point to golfing, hiking, biking, photography, horseback riding, and so much more. Not to mention the weather, with our semiarid climate the air is generally dry and clear, with low relative humidity and a high percentage of sunshine.
Joanna & Steve take pride in providing you with all that the Carefree Casita has to offer. You will find a very comfortable venue with all the amenities that you would have in your own home. You will have lots of room to stretch out and make yourselves comfortable. The villa has a master suite and an adjoining master bath with walk-in closet. The junior suite, available for an additional charge, features its own bathroom with walk-in closet, terrace and separate den.
Ideally suited for the couple that wants a private getaway, the two couples that want to travel together, or the family of up to six members, all will be comfortable at the Carefree Casita. Please remember we welcome you and your family members over the age of eight. Unfortunately we are not set up to accept pets at the Carefree Casita.

Making the reservation was very comfortable and the sending the check was also comfortable. The instructions were very easy including the information about the key pad. The place was clean and impressive. The amenities were fine. We did use the Wi-Fi connection. The bedding was comfortable. The area was lovely. We liked the place and the location. The overall stay was a wonderful. I would definitely recommend Casita Carefree to others.

My husband and I just returned from Carefree Casita. We loved the jr Suite and found it very comfortable, warm, and easy to feel at home. We had everything we needed. The Carefree area was very beautiful. Loved the big tall cactus and the blooming little ones too. Steve & Joanna were very easy to work with and answered our questions and concerns very quickly by email at all times. We would highly recommend staying here. The area was quiet and secure.

The Casita Junior Suite is clean, comfortable, and convenient - a wonderful place to stay. It is big with lots of room to spread out and in a great location. Steve could not be more friendly and helpful. Next time we are are out West we will hope to stay at the Casita. Thanks, Steve!!

We arrived late because of weather conditions at home, but the codes worked perfectly to get us safely into the unit. We were surprised at how much room there was when we got there, but it was a very enjoyable experience. It was over the holidays, so we spent a lot of time away from the unit at one of our daughters homes, so did not use the pool or do any walking like we usually do on vacation. The listing description and photos were completely accurate, The property was clean and well maintained, and the instructions provided made it easy to use the internet and get in and out of the unit. We would of course recommend this property to friends and family. We mainly ate at our family homes, so did not get experience with restaurants and other activities this trip.

Wonderful in October

Steve & Joanna, Thank you so much for the use of your casita. It was excellent! Of the many units we've stayed in at the Carefree Resort Village, yours was by far the nicest. Open layout, spacious kitchen, two-car garage, very nice furniture - all pluses. How nice to be in a villa that actually felt like being at home rather than being in a rental. Your VRBO information and pictures accurately portrayed the unit. It's proximity to the pool - all of 50 steps or so - was a bonus. We found the casita clean and ready for use. We had no problems with it at all, so never needed to call you. The food at the Lariat (in the Carefree Restort) was as high-quality as usual. Cave Creek is always terrific. We didn't miss either of the bull riding shows at The Chip on Wed. and Fri. nights. Buffalo Bills is still the best place to go to find something strange and wonderful to take home. Great to have the Road Haus (German food) open as the Chicago Bears bar of Cave Creek/Carefree. Would we recommed your casita to our family and friends for their use? You bet we would! We'll be getting back to you as well for one or both of our 2012 Carefree vacations. Thanks a lot. Paul & June

Our stay at Carefree Casita was all that we hoped it would be and more. It is spacious, welcoming and very well presented. The master bedroom suite was fantastic, very comfortable bed. All reservations, directions and entry passes worked very well. The pool area was very clean, great temperature for the water. We would definitely return again and have already recommended it to some friends we spoke to today. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so that we could enjoy some meals in. Thank you to Steve & Joanna for providing such as great option Carefree!

My husband and I rented the Carefree Casita for one week at the end of February. Stephen was very responsive to my many requests both before and after we arrived. We liked to go for walks through the development and found people in the complex very friendly frequently stopping to chat and to offer helpful information. The casita was clean and as pictured on the VRBO website. Everything worked properly except the one lamp gave us some difficulty. We visited with friends in Scottsdale who introduced us to geo caching and we played a lot of golf. We also went on a Ping factory tour and attended Coyote, Suns and Diamondbacks games - no end of activity to do in the area. We would recommend Tonto's restaurant at Rancho Manana and Mastro's steak house. We would definitely recommend the Carefree Casita to friends and we would also consider staying there if we return to the Phoenix area. We had a great vacation and Stehen and Joanna's casita definitely had a big part to play in that success.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind comments. We too find the area lovely and the people friendly. The Carefree area is an upscale part of the Valley of the Sun and it is reflected in the type of people that frequent the area. Those nasty light bulbs, I normally catch the ones that burn out, but obviously I missed one. Thank you for your understanding and letting me attend to it. Come stay with us again, Steve and Joanna
We just returned from a fabulous stay at the Carefree Casita. The property is beautiful, and was perfect for our family of 5. My parents retired to the area and have downsized. The Casita is the perfect location, close to family and all that Carefree has to offer. The children loved the heated pool! The condo is well stocked, very clean, and so comfortable. I highly recommend it!

We have stayed in the Carefree / Cave Creek area three times before and this was the nicest by far. Perfect actually. The condo was very clean and very well appointed. Steve was not only easy to deal with, he went out of his way to make everything perfect for us. The private second floor patio offered a wonderful view to the South and we loved having access to a two car garage. Everything about this condo was just wonderful. We absolutely love the quiet & slow pace of Carefree & Cave Creek. There are lots of great restaurants in every price range, evening entertainment and interesting shopping. We will definitely try to stay at Steve and Joanna's condo next year.

A wonderful place for a special occasion. The food is prepared in a unique way and the tastes are exquisite. While expensive, we find it well worth celebrating an anniversary or a special birthday. Binkley's has received several accolades and patrons come from all around the Valley of the Sun....MoreCollapse
If your looking for Mexican food in a fun and lively setting, head on over to the popular El Encanto. We always like sitting in the bar and ordering from the menu. It is the secret to fast service at this popular restaurant. For those with families, you will want to sit around the pond and enjoy the resident ducks and other water fowl. You can feed them if you like....MoreCollapse

About the owner: We relocated to Carefree in 2009 and love the area, most notably the weather. Due to the wide open spaces, wildlife abounds. Please join us at the Carefree Casita to see why we have fallen in love with Carefree and the Sonoran Desert which is surrounded by the Tonto National Forest.
Why the Owner Chose Carefree:
Living in a modest home in the area, we needed a place for family and friends to stay. Why not at a luxury resort/villa setting. As we will not have family and friends staying all the time, we wanted to make it available to the discerning traveler who appreciates the comfort of their own home. Join us for few nights, a week or even a month. You will most certainly enjoy this property.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Carefree Casita is located in a unique situation, overlooking the SkyRanch at Carefree Airport (18AZ) on property near the Carefree Resort and Villas. SkyRanch is a private airport and if you are a pilot, you too can fly in and have access to all that Carefree has to offer. If you are not a pilot, don't worry, there are few daily operations and it is fun to watch the airplanes land.
