About Jane and Tom Jenkins

As seasoned travelers we know what we appreciate when we travel so we have tried to offer that in our home. We want it to be clean, well maintained and thoughtfully furnished so that you fully enjoy staying in the home.

Jane is a native of Arizona and knows the State and local area well. Tom moved to Arizona from CT&NY over 20 years ago. We also reside in The Boulders and can offer suggestions to enhance your vacation experience.

Jane and Tom Jenkins purchased this house in 2008

Why Jane and Tom Jenkins chose Greater Phoenix Area

The Boulders is a well known, large and prestigious community with a variety of home sites. This home has a deep setback from the road with the back yard boarding the golf course. You have additional privacy features with trees, shrubs and side walls. The home is very well decorated - we wanted it to feel like you are staying in a boutique hotel with unique furnishings and a comfortable resort feeling.

What makes this house unique

The Boulders is truly a desert paradise, as a private gated resort community you will enjoy peaceful walks with little traffic, lush landscaping and abundant wildlife - birds, javelina, mule deer and bobcats can cross your path at any time. The community pool/spa facility is a 3 minute walk and the resort pools/health spa/club house is a very short 4 minute drive.

the best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are from New York and decided to make a big change this season. We rented this gorgeous house for the month of December and had different family members and friends come for a week's stay. Then we "kept" the place to ourselves for Hanukkah and New Year's eve. The entire time was far and away the best we have ever had. Everyone who visited with us raved about the house, their room, Carefree and all its charm, the Boulders Resort and all its beauty. We never ran out of things to do and most importantly were able to relax when we wanted and do nothing in the most beautiful setting.

The owners are gracious and were always available even though we lacked for nothing. the house is beautifully decorated comfortable and homey. We will be returning for sure.

Great Stay in Home in the Boulders, Carefree

  • 5 of 5

Really nice furnishings in an immaculate home. Very comfortable. We stayed a month and will book this home for a month or more next time. This is a quiet and amazingly beautiful area that's only 5 minutes to the great town of carefree. Wine bars and some fun casual restaurants, south west shopping all kept us from needing to drive far. The owners treated us like family. We loved being on a property with tennis and golf. Our favorite was sitting on the patio with wine in the evening and our hot tea in the morning. This is a top pick over places we stayed nearby before, and I'd recommend to anyone looking for the Arizona (near to Scottsdale) experience, but not the noise and traffic.

Beautiful, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home recently. The resort is beautiful, the owners were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They even left us a bottle of wine to welcome us. The location is convenient to Cave Creek, Carefree, Scottsdale, many restaurants and activities. The guards were always welcoming and helpful. The home had everything we needed and was comfortable. It was a wonderful stay and we look forward to returning!

Beautiful Boulders

  • 5 of 5

We had such a complete experience here. From the weather to the activities to the house we rented....we wanted for nothing! Being in the Boulders is not only beautiful, but one feels especially secure. The homes and the Club are wonderful to take in as we took our walk each day. The golf courses are challenging but fun and with exquisite scenery. The nearby towns offered lots of diversity...from Cowboy bars to art galleries. The opportunities to be outside are endless, especially at that time of year. And then we would end each day back at our attractive. well decorated and comfortable home to put our feet up!! We would go back in a heartbeat.

Great location - great resort!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in The Boulders! The house is decorated nicely with full amenities and the owners were very attentive and friendly. There was a bottle of wine waiting to greet us upon arrival!

We took full advantage of the pool, health spa, on-site restaurants and tennis courts, even got in a few rounds of golf.

The front gate guards were very friendly and always asked us how our stay was going and offered advice on places to go.

Local Carefree & Cave Creek hiking, restaurants and shopping are minutes away with Scottsdale just down the road.

We look forward to coming back!

Carefree has always been a scenic, beautiful place to visit. Some say it is hard to leave once you have taken in the scenery of the Sonoran High Desert. The views are intoxicating and the unique desert-mountain setting sets the tone for one of the rarest beauty in the world. The relaxed, laid back quality of life here is for some a respite away from the crowded and busy housing developments of other outlying areas. Scottsdale boarders Carefree and promises you a vacation experience unlike any other. The magic begins with our setting in the heart of the lush Sonoran Desert. Here, light takes on an ethereal quality, bathing the sky, desert and mountains in rich, vibrant hues. Trails laced with whimsically shaped cacti, playful wildflowers and fragrant desert plants invite exploration and adventure. And glittering star-filled skies create the perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner or exciting night out on the town. This is the magic of Scottsdale & Carefree- side by side.

Scottsdale and all that it offers in fine dining and upscale shopping is an easy 20 minute drive.
