About owner/property manager
We've always lived in snowy, cold climates and knew we wanted to spend winters in a sunny, warm location. A business trip to a Carefree resort years ago introduced us to this wonderful area. We love relaxing on the back patio, admiring the desert and mountain views, and looking for wildlife. And our latest hobbies of collecting southwestern recipes and hiking desert and mountain trails reflect our new lifestyle.
Why owner/property manager chose Carefree
Winters in our home city of Boston are snowy, cold, and long; we needed an infusion of sunshine and warm climate. The Village at Carefree offers a quiet respite, yet is close to activities, restaurants, and shopping. And, unlike in Boston, we rarely think about the weather; we can assume it will be pleasantly sunny. For us, highlights of the area are the outstanding southwest and Mexican cuisine, hiking the many local park trails, and the endless sunshine.
What makes this Villa unique
Sunsets at the villa are a special time of day. Relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine or a margarita, admiring the changing colors of the sky and looking for the resident owl in nearby trees is a perfect ending to a sun-filled day.

The Villa at Carefree was perfect for our plans to visit Arizona. We love wildlife and there was an abundance right off the back patio that faced beautiful mountains and a golf course. The villa was very private. In prior years, we had stayed in Scottsdale which was much too busy and active for us. We preferred the slower pace. There is an abundance of hiking options available so we took advantage of at least five different parks to see the desert. The villa was centrally located to them all. We were also able to horseback ride in the desert which provides a whole new perspective of the beauty of God's creation.
The villa is beautiful and spacious. The two large master suites allowed us to invite friends down for a few days during our stay. They had their own private area to relax or we could meet together in the large kitchen area and living room. We have many friends who stay in the Phoenix area and we were able to entertain and have the group over for an afternoon.
We highly recommend this villa for your trip to Arizona.
Beautiful condo in Carefree
We had the opportunity to stay in this is beautiful, well-appointed condo in Carefree. It's convenient to the local rodeos and not too far from Cave Creek town and Cave Creek State Park (good for hiking). Scottsdale isn't too far away (30 minutes or so) if you want more shopping, restaurants, etc. The condo itself is very comfortable with an open concept living area that can accommodate many people at the dining table with the breakfast bar nearby. There's a nice view of the mountains and sunsets from the living room and adjoining patio. One really nice feature is the separate suite with a spacious bedroom, very large bathroom, and another room that can function as a smaller bedroom or TV room. This suite has its own patio, which was great for observing some local wildlife. Highly recommend this beautiful, comfortable, clean, roomy condo. Great for two couples or those renting for a longer time who expect visitors.
We just loved our stay in your Villa in Carefree. The view from the back patio was spectacular with the mountains and desert. Then on the side balcony we could watch the incredible sunsets in Arizona. The accomodations were very comfortable and surpassed our expectations. With a 2 minute walk to the clubhouse, it made it very easy for us to enjoy the pool and spa. We love the charm of Carefree and the cowboy town of Cave Creek next door. We had never seen rodeo bull riding before and went a couple of times during our stay! We will definately return to your Villa on our next stay!
This villa is spacious, immaculate, and comfortable with a large, well-equipped kitchen. The mountain views and sunsets from the 2 patios were spectacular. The condo's location is convenient to great restaurants and shopping in Carefree, Cave Creek and Scottsdale. We enjoyed our time at the community pool, when we weren't taking day trips to Sedona, Prescott & Tucson. We look forward to returning!
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa, and are glad you had the opportunity to view the sunsets from the patios. We look forward to hosting you in the future.
Carefree is conveniently located to I-17, providing easy access to Sedona and Jerome (approx. 2 hrs.), Prescott (1 1/2 hrs.), Tuscon (2 1/2 hrs.), and the Grand Canyon (3 1/2 hrs.).
