  • Perfect vacation home

    "My wife and I stayed in the house for the full month of May. It was a wonderful experience. The home offers an incredible view across hundreds of saguaro cacti to the mountains in the far distance. The sunsets are so intense and colorful we could not believe it. The home itself is huge and offers every amenity. Great kitchen, cozy family room, impressive living room and a spectacular veranda and patio. The pool, waterfall and spa are connected to a remote control, which worked perfectly and made it a real pleasure to use it. We have rented many homes by vrbo, but never had a pool and spa which worked so well and easy than this one. The home owner did everything to make us feel good and happy. We can recommend this home in every aspect. For us, it was the best home we have rented via vrbo so far over the last 12 years."

  • Four Years in a row, and every year outstanding!

    "Carefree Casita gets our best recommendation. The business end of things is always hassle free, the Casita itself is perfect, and its convenient proximity to everything Carefree / Cave Creek and beyond is perfect too. Steve and Joanna go out of their way to provide their guests with a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Our most recent stay was out fourth and, we'll be there next year too."

  • Mike & Georgia Michigan

    "We just returned after 2 wonderful weeks in the most beautiful place in the southwest. The house was gorgeous, bright colors, southwestern decor, well maintained, and so private. The outdoor spaces were unmatched with comfortable furniture, pool/hot tub, gas grill, wood burning fireplace, and colorful flowers. The views of the mountains, the open desert, birds and wild life were spectacular. We spent hours everyday just relaxing in the sun, in awe of the views and the glorious sunsets. When another couple joined us for several days we found the home was well suited for visitors. There was plenty of space and privacy. The cities of Carefree and Cave Creek are full of unique restaurants, great shopping, art shows. Hiking opportunities are just outside the adobe walls. It is easy to make day trips to Sedona, Prescott and Wickenburg, as well as multiple conservation areas and parks. Susan was so friendly and accommodating. She did everything possible to ensure that our stay was perfect in every way, even sharing her sweet dog, Henry. We appreciate her genuine hospitality and are grateful she shared her charming home with us. Would love to make the Painted Carefree an annual destination for an even longer period of time."

  • Wow. Just wow. Comfortable, Clean, Relaxing.

    "As VRBO veterans, we've stayed in a lot of homes in the west and beyond and this is the most well-equipped vacation rental we've ever seen. The bedroom suites are all comfortable and private, the yard is impeccably maintained, the kitchen is incredibly outfitted and the outdoor living areas are extraordinary. Loved sitting on the big, comfy furniture around the fireplace or during a gentle rain under the expansive lanai. Tim is amazing, too: responsive, helpful and very kind. We so appreciated having the dogs with us and they loved their time at this retreat. We're going back next spring, there isn't a better endorsement than that!"
