About Ruth-Ann Stewart

Wow, finally we have a place in the desert!!! Ted and I love travelling. On our last trip to Arizona we stayed in Carefree and fell in love. What a magical place! Unfortunately we are not ready to travel to one place all the time (we are still travelling the world) so we hope to rent out our Carefree home so that others can enjoy it too. We live in British Columbia Canada and love it here as well. Carefree works well for us because we love the outdoors, biking, hiking etc. The weather in Arizona is perfect for that. Enjoy our home and let us know about your stay. Cheers Ted and Ruth-Ann

Ruth-Ann Stewart purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Ruth-Ann Stewart chose Greater Phoenix Area

This is a quiet location with great sunsets and sunrises (both of which you see from the master units balcony. Sunsets from the junior unit).. There is hiking and biking horse back riding all around us and Phoenix is close by, with great shopping in Scottsdale. Unique Cave Creek is minutes away. Lots of golf ranges too. We have a great gym, tennis courts, and the best pool in Arizona too. We love sitting on our patio overlooking the desert and watching great sunrises and sunsets. Time in the hammock for reading or just snoozing is paradise.

What makes this townhome unique

This is a unique concept because there are two completely separate units here. They call them a lock off unit or master and junior suite. The master suite has the full kitchen while the junior suite has a bar fridge and a den. So you can socialize with friends or get some quiet time in your own space. Both have patios to enjoy the views from. Great deal for everyone. The junior suite gets the hammock! Please note that we have an age restriction of above 40 and a maximum of four guests. Sorry our home is not suitable for younger children (under 7 years of age). If you have grandchildren coming for a visit that is fine. It just isn't really child proofed for the younger ones.

Also there is no BBQ on site.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our visit to Unit 30D at the Carefree Villas! The villa was spotless and well appointed with new appliances and flat screen TV's. The unit was quiet and had views of the mountains to the south and to the west. We love it so much, we are coming back again in February.

This is a very spacious upstairs townhome, great for families! It has two totally separate Master suites. Both master suites have two queen beds. One Master suite has an additional room with two chairs that fold out to make a twin bed. Three bathrooms/toilets total with two bathtubs/showers and a third shower. The kitchen has a counter height bar eating area that is a great room dining/ living room. Sectional sofa that also makes into a sleeper sofa. Large dining room table as well. Really nice open floor plan! Two big balconies to view the beautiful desert! There is a full size laundry room. Two car garage shared with the lower unit. Plenty of guest parking. Very pretty pool and jacuzzi just down the street. This property is right down the road from the Carefree Conference Resort and The Boulders Golf Resort. Just a few minutes to downtown Cave Creek and El Pedregal at North Scottsdale.

We had a wonderful week at this home! Thank you Ruth Ann!

Owner's Response: thank you for your review. We want the best experience for our guests. Our home is your home while you are in Carefree and I hope that you felt that way! I hope that you got a chance to relax in the evening on the patio with a glass of wine and had a chance to hear the coyotes. It is so calming. The pool is the best one around! We spend hours there in the warm (and hot) months. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Ruth-Ann and Ted

We arrived at rental 432395 (Carefree, AZ) in early June looking for sun and warmth because we live in Vancouver, BC, Canada; a very beautiful part of Canada, but cool and wet in May and early June. The weather in Carefree, AZ was beautiful; hot and dry throughout our entire visit.

We were very surprised and delighted to find two large, beautiful and very clean suite with large bedrooms, big living room/dining room and big bathrooms. The secondary suite off the main suite had a separate entrance with 2 Queen beds, a TV and full entertainment unit, fridge and coffee maker and a living room with TV and two love seats that converted into two double beds. This suite also had a dining table and beautiful balcony. The kitchen in the main suite was small yet well laid out to allow two adults to prep and cook together. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking. eating and entertaining. Both suites were beautifully furnished with AZ inspired furniture, wall art, flooring and draperies. The draperies kept the suites cool throughout the day, therefore no need to use the A/C. Every evening the breeze coming in from the balconies kept the place cool. The balconies were perfect for watching sunsets and the wild animals that came out foraging every evening; not to mention the brilliant stars and moonscapes. We used the community pool every day, often three times/day. The trees and flora surrounding the pool were excellent for shade and provided a wonderfully colourful visual backdrop. The birds were amazing, especially the hummingbirds.

Parking was readily available at the unit. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops in Carefree and went for walks and hikes in the nearby neighbourhoods and the foothills. Sightseeing and hiking trips to the mountains were approximately 1-1.5 hours away. The highways and freeways allowed an easy to commute to those places.

We have recommended this property to our family and friends and will definitely go back again.

Check out Suzanne's. a coffee and hot sauce kiosk in the little town. Her coffee products are delicious and the hot sauces are wonderfully HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

My stay in Carefree Arizona.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ruth-Ann and Ted's this spring and loved it.

From the moment we walked into the entravnce we were Wowed!

The large, well set out home, tastefully decorated , has a well proportioned master bedroom, a big bathroom and a second one for showering. The junior suite was great for our friends to enjoy their privacy. Many decks for appreciating sunrises with steaming cups of coffee and spectacular sunsets with a glass or two of wine ;) The hammock on the patio is a lovely touch, inviting daydreaming, or just lazing around reading, snoozing. The kitchen is very comfortable to cook in and well -equipped.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well groomed, and one of the nicest pools we've been in.

Nearby Carefree is a neat little town within walking distance to experience and shop in. Lots of interesting places to hike, golf, and other outdoor sports for the adventurers.

Definitely recommend this place.

Thank you Ruth-Ann and Ted for a wonderful experience. We'll be back with more friends.

GOOD VALUE IN GATED COMMUNITY

  • 5 of 5

THE LISTING DESCRIPTION IS ACCURATE, THE PROPERTY IS CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED, BOTH THE OWNER AND MANAGER ARE READILY AVAILABLE IF YOU NEED THEM. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO YOU WITH NO RESERVATIONS WHATSOEVER IN OUR OPINION...AND THE AREA HAS TERRIFIC RESTAURANTS, SHOPS, GOLF COURSES AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS.
