The kitchen looks out into an open dining room and living area which is divided into 2 separate sitting areas.

The master bedroom and bath is located on one end of the main living area and the guest bedroom and adjoining bath is on the opposite side. Morning coffee, newspaper, and breakfast are enjoyed on the front patio and evening cocktails are savored on the back veranda overlooking the peaceful desert landscape. Furnishings are cozy and comfortable and the new mattresses feature high end linens and down pillows unless otherwise requested. There is a spacious 2 car garage. There is no pool on the property but our guests are able to use the pool and workout facility at the Carefree Resort which is located a block away for a nominal monthly fee.

About The Owner

We are residents of Idaho and have enjoyed spending the spring and fall in the desert. Since purchasing the home we have fallen in love with our cozy home, Carefree, and the beauties of the desert. Since we still are avid skiers we spend our winters in the snow and are happy to share our home with those who appreciate the desert experience!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Amazing home in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

Last winter was our first visit to the Phoenix area and we quickly found Carefree to be the perfect area for us. Quieter, but with beautiful vistas and great restaurants. We've rented through VRBO for more than 10 years and are pretty picky. This house has met every need and exceeded every desire. Kind of like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this house is a perfect size, not too big-not too small. It has very good views from both the front, covered porch as well as the back. Inside it is furnished in a comfortable, but not stuffy manner. The living room has plenty of seating for a gathering, but still feels cozy for two. We used the fireplace once on a rainy afternoon with books and wine by our sides. The kitchen is what sold me on the house originally and will keep us coming back. To quote my husband "it's the best stocked kitchen we've encountered". The appliances are top notch and if the refrigerator is missing when you arrive, it's probably strapped to the top of my car (unless we can get the range up there first).

The bedrooms and bathrooms are very soothing and elegant. The yard is landscaped in a desert style, there is a great mountain view and we've been delighted to see wildlife such as Javalinas, coyote and a wide variety of birds pass through. Our friends who have visited have all commented on what a find this is. The house was very clean when we arrived and has not been difficult to keep up. Susan has been a delight to work with. When we had one small issue with the washing machine, which she had warned us about ahead of time, it was attended to immediately. As far as the neighborhood, we couldn't be happier. It's safe, quiet and a nice walk to the shopping area and restaurants if you're inclined. My only concern about writing this glowing review is that next year may be more difficult for us to book, we'll need to get in line pronto!
