About The Owner

We bought this house as a second home and enjoyed it with our kids for the last 15 years. Our kids are teenagers now and off to college and we do not get a chance to get to Arizona as much as we want to.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Carefree

This is the most gorgeous place with magnificent views of the Boulders and so close to Scottsdale but you still have the feel of the natural desert.

What makes this house unique

Incredible sunsets, wildlife galore, javelinas, bobcats and amazing flowers. Fantastic restaurants and shopping.

Best kept secret in convenient Beautiful town of Carefree. This was an unexpected luxurious Hidden Treasure. When my wife and I pulled up to the very large adobe house I commented this is photo book beautiful and I wonder which section do you think is ours. From the first view set against Black Mountain I knew this was going to be paradise. The house is immaculate, beautiful, comfortable and extremely luxurious. It seems other than food from the convenient nearby markets we had every amenity at our fingertips. Clean Heated pool with a soothing waterfall, Heated Jacuzzi, built in grill on the patio, a beautiful sky deck for breathtaking sunsets, it had it all. The interior of the home is simply beautiful! We did have a couple of questions we needed answered and Susan the owner was remarkable in her immediate response. Debbie her property manager showed up shortly thereafter to ensure we had our questions answered. She made us feel as if we were family living in her home. We were so happy with our stay I almost was reluctant to write this review because I want it to remain Carefrees' best kept secret! Thanks Susan

Amazing Arizona Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home. The pool/cookout area was fantastic. The fact that the pool heat was included was a definite plus. The house is spacious with comfortable furniture and beautiful art. The rooftop deck was wonderful for coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. We also loved the outdoor fireplace in the evening. There is plenty of outdoor furniture for relaxing under the shade of the veranda or sunning next to the pool. The neighborhood is quiet, and we loved taking walks and spotting wildlife, especially in the early morning. The Cave Creek area is loaded with fun restaurants, and we even went to a local rodeo event which was so fun. We joined a local gym for a month to keep up with our exercise. Nearby, the Maricopa County park system has several spectacular parks in which to hike. The property is close to anything you want to do in the Arizona area - Frank Lloyd Wright's home, baseball, shopping - and convenient to the airport (30 min.) or a drive to Sedona (90 min.). The owner is very responsive, trustworthy, and returned our damage deposit in a timely manner. We highly recommend this property!

A month away from the cold

  • 5 of 5

Coming from up north, we had a wonderful month long stay in this lovely and very stylish Arizona home--the beauty, features, accessories and comfort were all we could ask for. It is in a wonderful location--near everything yet secluded and peaceful. Outside the back is a comfortable covered outdoor dining area and grill--very pretty landscaping and very private. We were able to experience all the sun we wanted by/in the pool, yet refresh, read and eat in shaded comfort. Enjoyed margaritas on the sunset deck--with spectacular views. We traveled with adult family, and the home enabled pleasant group activities, dining and games, while allowing quiet and peaceful time as well. Lots of hiking, golf, and wonderful restaurants all within a short drive. Our owner promised a great experience; ours exceeded all expectations. We plan to stay again next year!!

Arizona heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay for 2 weeks in this fabulous home. We left Oregon on a foggy, rainy morning and arrived to SUNNY Phoenix and Carefree. This home is larger than our own and we found it to be very comfortable and relaxing. We ventured out to Cave Creek, Carefree and Scottsdale but always couldn't wait to get back "home" to this house. We spent hours in the hot tub and pool and by the outdoor fireplace. We spent some morning sunrises and evening sunsets on the sky deck. The pool and hot tub were perfect temperatures. The pool and spa were immaculately clean. I definately appreciated that the pool heating was included in the rental price. It is one of the main reasons I chose this house over others.

Debi, the caretaker came and helped get us settled in and went over some things like how to turn the spa on, etc. She gave us some wonderful recommendations for local restaurants and sight seeing. I sent her a text or 2 and she always responded immediately.

We had a minor issue with the temperature of the kitchen sink water. It would get lukewarm and occasionally hot. I did not find this to be a major issue. Debi was aware of this and offered to come check it. We were not going to be home and she did not want to enter the house without us there, which I respect.

Some of our favorite places: Tonto bar & grill for happy hour at Rancho Manano golf course, El Encanto in Cave Creek for frozen margaritas, Boulders spa was nice but pricey, We-Ko-Pa golf course is stunning but an hour away (ask the locals for the back way through Rio Verde), Greasewood Flat is a magical place about 10 miles away on Alma School rd off of Rio Verde (aka, Dynomite). It has been there since the 1970's. Old arizona style. Outdoor venue with picnic tables to share, fire pits, live bands/artists, a dancing patio, good beer (aka, microbrews) and good burgers. There are bikers, seniors, and young families dancing, smiling and listening to the music. You won't regret it if you go. Unfortunately, Four Seasons and the surrounding neighborhoods are forcing them out and they will not be there much longer. It is really sad to see this icon go away.

Private Sonoran Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights with my family at this lovely Carefree home and I cannot recommend it enough. It is spacious, comfortable and very well appointed. Our family of four each had a large room and private bath, with the kids' rooms at the far end of the house from the master! The public space is open and relaxing with ample room for entertaining or for larger family gatherings.

As nice as the inside space is, it is the backyard space and beautifully landscaped lot which really set this house apart. The backyard offers breathtaking views of the Black Mtn with a large iconic Sagauro Cactus towering over the natural, boulder crowned pool. The spa spills over a negative edge into the pool and is a particular treat at night under the stars. The various sitting areas allow you to enjoy being outside at all hours of the day. We looked forward each night to the upper patio next to the gas fireplace. The roof top patio affords sweeping views of the surrounding foothills and moutains - its hard to come down even for another cup of coffee!

The location in this private, small Carefree community was ideal for us as we wanted a more private, local experience. It is a quick, scenic 20-30 minute ride into the middle of Scottsdale, but there are many things of interest very close by - golf, hiking, shopping and restaurants.

The owner is very responsive, helpful and accommodating - we can't wait for another chance to visit this house again!

More beautiful than photos!

  • 5 of 5

Arizona architecture is highlighted in a beautiful setting. Backyard with pool, whirlpool, chimney is inviting at different times of the day. Stars at night are breathtaking. Quiet location but near restaurants and the Heard museum. The Pedragal shopping area has fun concerts at different times.

Depending on month this area of Carefree offers many outdoor craft shows, car shows, rodeos and it is 10-20 minutes from all Scottsdale activities. Scottsdale offers an abundance of movie theaters, restaurants, art shows and other entertainment. 50 minute drive to downtown Phoenix. It is an ideal location.
