Overview

Carefree Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Are you tired of the usual hotel/motel for your vacation experience? Then welcome to our home away from home! The Village at Carefree is located just north of Scottsdale in Carefree, AZ and is a fully fenced, gated community of quiet villas surrounded by desert landscape. Located just 40 minutes north of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, Carefree is in the mountain foothills of Tonto National Forest. During the day you can see rock formations and mountains in every direction. Due to minimum street lighting in Carefree, the stars are amazing to watch at night and the wildlife is fascinating to hear and see.

The villa is on the top floor (stairs only) and consists of two suites with private entries joined by a foyer. Great for couples travelling together. Features include ceramic tile, granite counter tops and vanities and beautiful large raised wood panel doors throughout. The family room has a corner Santa Fe style fireplace and is adjacent to a dining room area with a table for six. The villa is located next to the putting green and right across from the heated pool and hot tub. There are two balconies, south and west, so that you may enjoy morning sunshine from the Master suite balcony and afternoon and setting sun from the Junior suite balcony. There are board games and HDVR TV in the main room and den. There is a stereo and DVD players in the main room and den. If you crave the sun, go to the pool across the street and after a busy day, hit the hot tub and watch the stars.

Everything you need may be found in the villages of Carefree or Cave Creek, there is shopping, restaurants for anyone's tastes (no chains here), and grocery stores. If you crave the out-of-doors, you are right next to Tonto Verde National Forest and some wonderful native ruins. There are several mountains that are waiting to be climbed along with jeep tours and horseback riding. There are local artists and one of a kind shops. If you need a fix of big city, Scottsdale is directly south, along with Phoenix. To the north is Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott, and the Grand Canyon. If you are a golfer, you have arrived in heaven as there are more than 200 courses in the area. And if you are here in the spring, don’t forget Spring Training Cactus League with 15 teams in the area!

About Melissa Wallace

We are Midwesterners who fell in love with Carefree in 2009 and decided we would like to have a more permanent location here. It has the feel of being out away from the crowd and yet close enough to get a quick big city fix. It's great to leave the snow and gloom behind. We love spring baseball, the local restaurants (check out El Encanto and their ducks), the laid back lifestyle and the wildlife. One of our favorite things is to listen to the coyotes howl at night and watch the quail scamper during the day.

Melissa Wallace purchased this condo in 2010

Why Melissa Wallace chose Carefree

We fell into the Village at Carefree because another rental in Scottsdale that we had fell through at the last minute. Someone suggested here and we just felt so comfortable, we hated to leave. It took us a while, but we finally found this unit and look forward to each visit!

What makes this condo unique

A great place to RELAX! It's not crowded and there is truly something for everyone year round. We enjoy the location close to the pool and putting green. The people here are friendly and there is so much activity to choose from or quiet to enjoy. Great views from an upper floor unit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mrs. and Mr. WAllace,

i just want to say thank you for your fabulous condo we could stay during our summer vacation in August/September 2014.

We enjoyed it so much, the children loved it, we had everything we needed, it was just perfect.

All went well everything was as you described it.



If we come again to CArefree, we will for sure ask again if there is space in your place.



HAve a nice Oktober, with the best wishes from Germany

We spent the month of February in this wonderful villa. Everything was perfect! We absolutely love the location...right across from the pool for me and next to the putting green for my husband. We had morning coffee on the balcony off the living room and evening cocktails on the balcony off the junior suite watching the amazing sunsets. There is nothing this residence lacks in accommodations. This is our second visit to the Carefree area and we love it...great golf, wonderful restaurants, including the Lariat which is connected to the Carefree Resort, fun shopping in Scottsdale and sunshine almost every day. The property owners were quick to respond to any question I had and Ron, the property manager, was equally helpful. This was such a wonderful month we are hoping to come next year for a longer visit!

Wonderful property. View is excellent. Lean over the balcony for a sunrise to the east, enjoy the sunset on the west balcony. Fully equipped with everything one could need. I was not expecting spices, coffee, crockpot, countertop grill, and laundry soap. The unit was spotless when I arrived, floors in kitchen and bathroom were immaculate. The local property manager was needed to reset the internet, replace a few bulbs, and instructions on locking the unit. He was kind, patient, and helpful.

I wish that recycling was available. I would be willing to take items to a center if an address were given.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has spent spring breaks in Arizona for almost 20 years. Typically, we've stayed at resorts. Now, with our child grown, we decided to try something different and booked this lovely private residence in Carefree. The quality and comfort of our unit exceeded our expectations. Quiet, peaceful, and all the comforts of home. After a quick trip to a nearby grocery store, (four to choose from!) one wouldn't need to ever leave the villa! We had our breakfasts and lunches in the condo and went out to dinner. Among the many pluses this particular villa offered, it was directly across from the community swimming pool! You're in the desert here, which we love, but within a short walk or ride to charming downtown Carefree. Plenty to do, see, and experience from this wonderful location.

The owners are very conscientious in the manner they prepare their residence for guests. Highly recommend and would definitely repeat.
