Beautiful Condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in mid April. We travel to the Phoenix area 3-4 times a winter and this among the nicest condos we have rented. Booking was easy and price was very reasonable. Cheryl always responded promptly to communication. Good directions--easy to find. It is way on the north end of the valley; but we like that area. Nice ground level location just steps away from the pool area. The condo itself was clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped and the condo was well-stocked with towels, cleaning products, paper products, coffee, spices etc. Nice gas grill on the private patio. The complex was very quiet while we were there. Prompt return of damage deposit. Really, not a thing to complain about--the owners have thought of everything. We will definitely be back!

Lovely townhouse , great location

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped.

The furnished patio is lovely and gets the sun most of the day. Within walking distance of a Carefree and a short drive to Cave Creek.

Cheryl, the property owner, is very attentive and easy to work with. She'll do all possible to help you enjoy your stay.

Thank you for a great vacation and we will most certainly return.

We had a perfect vacation in our two bedroom villa. The moment we stepped through the door we were impressed with how beautifully furnished and what great taste and absolutely immaculate. The furnishings were done in Tuscan style and the sofa and chairs were very comfortable, we felt right at home. Both bedrooms were a decorators dream and so comfortable. The sheets, towels and bedding were beautiful and of the best quality. The paintings and accessaries even the dishes were of the top quality. I have never stayed in a rental with such beautiful touches, I felt like a princess. I could tell that Cheryl put a lot of love into this and she is a fabulous decorator. The owners have put together a very helpfull information book on things to do, places to go and great resturants in the area, and also directions on how to operate the TV and stereo. Through the sliding door a private patio, gas grill, up graded furniture and a view of the pool and the nicely landscaped common area. Our daughter and 6 year old grandson flew in for a long weekend and we all used both the crystal clear heated pool and the hot tub on several occasions and loved it, especially my grandson. The location is fantastic,and only a five minute walk to the heart of a very charming Carefree Center, many shops and restaurants and small park that has outdoor concerts.

We had a great time, love Arizona and couldn't have had a better place to stay and such a excellent location. We are fussy and I can tell you there isn't one thing in the villa we would change. Cheryl also was available and happy to answer any questions we had. Thank you so much Cheryl and Bill.....

This is definitely a place that we would highly recommend, the villa is fantastic and so are the owners.

Wonderful Carefree

  • 5 of 5

Very attractive home away from home. Well equipped, spacious, clean and quiet but with the convenience of being a 5 minute stroll to the restaurants and shops of Carefree.Quiet so it was like having our own private pool and hot tub ! Loads of towels .Quality linens & pillows. Bathrobes were a great touch and the owners generously supplied all the paper,cleaning products etc ( not just a starter kit) In a pass it forward way guests seem to leave some extras and leftovers each time ( seasonings, pastas,coffee etc) for the next visitors . We had wonderful weather and have wonderful memories of our time in Carefree.

p.s. Damage deposit was promptly returned .
