House is nice, it needs proper management

The location of the home (easy walking distance to Carefree) and the presentation/furnishings of the home is great. I really want to give this home a higher rating, but I just cannot.
The first day we settled in and turned on lights (many were blown out), found the chirping noise was a dead smoke detector on the cathedral ceiling, used the dishwasher (one was broken), turned on the fireplace(s) (two did not work), used the blender (broken), turned on the kitchen sink disposal (broken), the pool desperately needed to be cleaned and the water was very low and the pump should have been turned on, we were, to say the least, a bit frustrated. We had to call the property manager throughout the week. We spent at least 3 days with contractors coming in to the house who spent up to 2-3 hours there during the day. We even asked if someone would come clean the huge amount of ashes at one of the outdoor fireplaces only to find after it was cleaned that there was a gas fireplace underneath (which did not work). The fireplace maintenance man told us that we were absolutely not allowed to burn wood in the outdoors because of the strict ordinances (it was the people before us that burned the wood-hence why we wanted it cleaned, it was full). We had to educate the property manager and tell her that wood is not allowed and that she should take the 'wood burning fireplace' off the website and to please fix the two outdoor fireplaces that were broken.
Do not touch the pool system (no matter what the property manager tells you), for someone that owns a pool, this is complicated system (this pool should be maintained professionally once a week). You can tell that the people before us kept pressing buttons trying to get what they wanted for the pool and only messed up the system more (as explained by the pool professional).
I learned more about this house in the one week than I actually cared to know, but STILL, I loved being there and really liked the design and wonderful features of the home.
Three more mentions: the pool is a lot smaller than the photos and there are a lot more houses built up around and behind-it is not as private as the photos show. Also, the outdoor spaces could really use a table to eat on and more chairs for lounging. It is too beautiful in Arizona to have to stay indoors to eat.
That being said, if the house were properly cleaned and maintained....it would be perfect!

Owner's Response: It is most unfortunate that some issues came to light at this time, the Fire Alarm and lights will continue to be a constant maintenance issue that come up at the most inappropriate time, however, we are happy to take care of all issues as they arise. Several reported issues were found to actually be In working order upon further inspection. It is our goal to turn the house over in a well maintained manner and to provide a comfortable vacation home for our visitors, and we strive to accomplish just that.

Unbelievable Home

We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday with 3 other couples and rented this home for the celebratory trip. This home was so over the top! It is beautiful, spacious yet very comfortable. The negative edge pool is gorgeous, as is the rest of the patio area. The courtyard entrance is very unique, as is the "casita". The master bedroom suite was incredible. We would highly recommend this property and absolutely will rent it again when we return to Carefree. Carefree itself is a fun little area and the house is conveniently located within walking distance of shopping.

Family Vacation

When our children were young, we visited their late grandfather in Carefree and have always enjoyed it! We decided to take our adult children, their spouses and girlfriend to Carefree and were absolutely delighted to find the home was literally 3 blocks from Grandpa's house! We arrived at night and found the home to be absolutely perfect for our family - the bedroom/bath situation was perfect! The master suite was stunning. My husband is a light packer and the joke of the stay became - "thank goodness there is room for dad's clothes!" There were two massive closets in the master suite. I wish it were truly mine. When we awoke on Thanksgiving Day, we could see the view of Black Mountain and enjoyed it even more for the nightly sunsets! We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner in the beautiful that was even equipped with china. The eight of us had plenty of room around the large dining table. We all agreed that there was so very much to be thankful for. Our plans to cook for Thanksgiving and then eat out the rest of the trip changed when we saw the kitchen. We prepared most of our meals right at the house. We entertained some friends that lived in Arizona and had a delightful time reminiscing around the outdoor fireplace. The pool was fantastic, having a pool to ourselves was so relaxing and the weather couldn't have been better - 85 degrees and sunny - we did not see a cloud for our entire stay. The shopping was very convenient - within walking distance and there was a art market during our stay. We found wonderful gifts for our family at home. We had a wonderful time and we will definitely return to this home!
