About The Owner

My wife and I grew up in the Mid-West, but we LOVE the mountains and climate of Arizona. Ever since we visited Carefree we've been going back to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we found Carefree to be the perfect place to escape the cold. A family friendly destination and golfers’ paradise, we found Carefree’s gentle climate perfect for enjoying the outdoors and all the thrilling variety of local attractions and activities. There was no question; we had to invest in our own 'Carefree Home.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Arizona has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Arizona

We chose the gated community of the Villa’s at Carefree Resort & Spa because it comes with great resort amenities and its proximity to some of Arizona’s finest fairways & greens, restaurants, shopping and outdoor diversions. Here you will find a concierge service, multiple heated swimming pools, spa, lighted tennis courts, and fine or casual dinning a short amble away.

What makes this villa unique

Our favorite restaurant is Tontos Bar and Grill at Rancho Manana Golf Course in the town of Cave Creek just minutes away. Rancho Manana offers 18 holes of some of the finest golf the area has to offer… not to mention that Tontos is rated one of the best restaurants in the entire valley. It is a great place to dine outdoors and enjoy the spectacular sunsets. The two courses at the Boulders is another favorite. There is always something going on in this picturesque resort community for the whole family to enjoy.

It was everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

Everything promised and everything pictured was just what we received. Although not shown on the website, the kitchen area is perfect as well. Very nice furnishings, well appointed. Bedrooms are huge and separated enough to afford total privacy. Day trips to Sedona, Flagstaff and Grand Canyon are easy from this location. The owner and rental manger were always available for questions and assistance, and both very pleasant and easy to deal with. We will definitely stay in this unit again when coming back to Carefree!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this Carefree Condo and we loved it just as much as the first time. Beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The management is extremely easy to work with. Very friendly and accommodating. We hope to stay again there next year! Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing family vacation!

Carefree vacation

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this "Carefree" villa. The property was nicely decorated and well maintained. We found the area convenient to all we wanted to do during our time in the desert. Mike, the property manager was very accessible and helpful. A bonus was enjoying all the wildlife that paraded past the condo throughout the day.

Well decorated and spacious 1st floor condo with two pleasant patios

  • 5 of 5

Arrival was easy with a hidden key and code to the gated community supplied by the property manager. Unit has two large bedrooms with separate bath area. Decor/furniture is nicely done with darker wood and Spanish/Mediteranean accents. Everything worked! Two separate patios, one looking onto the desert with mountain tops in the distance. The other looked onto a similar condo perhaps 75 ft away. Very quiet. Neighborhood pool and spa were a short walk away and uncrowded. It had access to a garage with space for one vehicle which is all I needed.

Restaurant situation in Cave Creek is uneven, and local dinner experiences were mixed. Had better experiences driving into south part of Scottsdale but its a bit of a hike. Golf in the area is great. Played Boulders South and Troon North Monument, preferring the latter. Value pick with great scenery is Rancho Manana. All are a 15 min drive or less.

I would recommend this unit to anybody and will come back myself when I get a yen for the Sonoran desert area.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, spacious and beautifully furnished and decorated. The pool was conveniently located for our two grandchildren. The owner was very accomodating and responded promptly to any questions we had before arrival. Would definitely rent again!

IF WE HAD A CHOICE, WE WOULD HAVE LEFT.

  • 2 of 5

We checked in Friday and it was a nice place, however the couches were a little on the dirty-used side and there were no instructions on how to work the television, and the patio furniture was covered in cob webs and the patios had not been cleaned in a long time. However, Mike from the realty company was first class and did his absolute best to accommodate us. The owner, Karl Schlehofer, on the other hand, what a joke! It was our anniversary and we planned to stay in and enjoy being ALONE...however, the TV's didn't work! The only one that did was in the 2nd bedroom and it was "grainy!" ARE YOU KIDDING? -- we asked ourselves? We planned on eating in, hanging out, but with no television, no music stations off the television, no nothing? We called Mike on Friday and he came right over, but could not help us. Saturday morning at 9:15 AM Mike called us to tell us he arranged to have a TV repairman come over, in 15-20 minutes. Cool, we waited. Finally, at 10:30, Phil the TV repairman showed up and dinked around with the televisions until noon, and said it "must be the wiring in the walls" and he couldn't fix it either! Needless to say, my husband ended up sick with pneumonia and had to stay in until we finally checked out Sunday morning had to watch TV in that back 2nd bedroom!!! We couldn't even use the master bedroom or the living room! I called the owner Saturday and told him what we were up against, thinking to myself that having a TV is kind of a major amenity and maybe he'll offer us a discount or make it up to us somehow (even an "offer" would have been nice) - but nothing! We were "SOL" and too bad-so sad but "not my fault" Karl said! I didn't yell, I didn't scream, and I didn't make demands, I was just so dumbfounded that he took our money without feeling bad about it and he kept pointing the blame at everybody else and accepted no responsibility at all! I was so upset that I apologized for having to hang up at that particular moment, no wanting to lower myself to his level and hang up in his ear! NEVER WILL I EVER recommend this unit to anybody! I will recommend Mike to all my friends but will make sure that they NEVER rent from Karl Schlehofer!!! Thanks for nothing Karl - you ruined our anniversary!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I'm confident you selected my property based on all the positive feedback and endearing remarks in all the reviews of the many wonderful guests over the years. We work very hard in providing accommodations that exceed our travelers expectations at a very affordable price. The HD TV service is contracted directly through the Home Owners Association and not the private home owner. I did everything imaginable to fix the TV for you including sending out a private cable tv contractor to the property on Saturday. Unfortunately, Cable TV outages are unpredictable and repairs at the mercy of the Cable TV Company. Im happy to say that first thing Monday morning a representative of the Cable TV provider called to remedy the situation. Please accept my sincere apologies for your inconvenience.
