Carefree condo description

Are you tired of the usual hotel/motel for your vacation experience? Then welcome to our home away from home! The Village at Carefree is located just north of Scottsdale in Carefree, AZ and is a fully fenced, gated community of quiet villas surrounded by desert landscape. Located just 40 minutes north of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, Carefree is in the mountain foothills of Tonto National Forest. During the day you can see rock formations and mountains in every direction. Due to minimum street lighting in Carefree, the stars are amazing to watch at night and the wildlife is fascinating to hear and see.

The villa is on the top floor (stairs only) and consists of two suites with private entries joined by a foyer. Great for couples travelling together. Features include ceramic tile, granite counter tops and vanities and beautiful large raised wood panel doors throughout. The family room has a corner Santa Fe style fireplace and is adjacent to a dining room area with a table for six. The villa is located next to the putting green and right across from the heated pool and hot tub. There are two balconies, south and west, so that you may enjoy morning sunshine from the Master suite balcony and afternoon and setting sun from the Junior suite balcony. There are board games and HDVR TV in the main room and den. There is a stereo and DVD players in the main room and den. If you crave the sun, go to the pool across the street and after a busy day, hit the hot tub and watch the stars.

Everything you need may be found in the villages of Carefree or Cave Creek, there is shopping, restaurants for anyone's tastes (no chains here), and grocery stores. If you crave the out-of-doors, you are right next to Tonto Verde National Forest and some wonderful native ruins. There are several mountains that are waiting to be climbed along with jeep tours and horseback riding. There are local artists and one of a kind shops. If you need a fix of big city, Scottsdale is directly south, along with Phoenix. To the north is Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, and the Grand Canyon. If you are a golfer, you have arrived in heaven as there are more than 200 courses in the area. And if you are here in the spring, don’t forget Spring Training Cactus League with 15 teams in the area!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We are Midwesterners who fell in love with Carefree in 2009 and decided we would like to have a more permanent location here. It has the feel of being out away from the crowd and yet close enough to get a quick big city fix. It's great to leave the snow and gloom behind. We love spring baseball, the local restaurants (check out El Encanto and their ducks), the laid back lifestyle and the wildlife. One of our favorite things is to listen to the coyotes howl at night and watch the quail scamper during the day.

              Why the Owner Chose Carefree:
              We fell into the Village at Carefree because another rental in Scottsdale that we had fell through at the last minute. Someone suggested here and we just felt so comfortable, we hated to leave. It took us a while, but we finally found this unit and look forward to each visit!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              A great place to RELAX! It's not crowded and there is truly something for everyone year round. We enjoy the location close to the pool and putting green. The people here are friendly and there is so much activity to choose from or quiet to enjoy. Great views from an upper floor unit!
