My home is conveniently located in Carefree/Cave Creek AZ, surrounded by 20 acres of land preserve.
We have three different seasons with different pricing. It is always best to contact me as I am sometimes able to adjust availability.
Painted Carefree is very private. No close neighbors. Wonderful views and surroundings.
Painted Carefree is an easy walk to many restaurants and attractions both in Carefree and in Cave Creek. Of course you need a car, but in reality you have a very easy walk to town and could go without. This is a single private house, not a villa or condo. Painted Carefree is very clean and tidy. We take pride in providing many amenities. The house has everything for cooking, for enjoying. Just bring your food and beverages, everything else is provided.
My home is bright and airy and in great condition. It is comfortable and "user friendly", the privacy amazing. Outdoor living at its very best, cannot be more comfortable and private. My home is very easy to maintain. Neighbors call it the HAPPY HOUSE. Viewed from our private back patio are, javalina, quail, coyote, bobcats, desert fox, road runners, jack rabbits and mule deer are seen regularly at our natural watering hole or frolicking in Galloway wash. A mountain lion has been seen as well. (Wish there was a photograph). There is a 360 degrees of Mountain views and the very best Arizona sunsets. The home is located in the heart of Carefree, but one feels like they are way out in the desert because of being surrounded by 22 acres of land trust.
The house is situated on 2+ acres with a privacy wall that surrounds the pool and outdoor living area that can be enjoyed day or night. I am very proud of my home and keep it immaculate , organized and personal.
There is a Living room / dining area / TV room and workable, well equipped kitchen. Master bedroom has king sized bed, master bath, walk in closet and a private bedroom patio. The mattress is foam.
We launder both mattress pads and pillow protectors after each and every stay.
Enjoy romantic, starry Arizona nights from the pool, patio or around the outside bee hive fireplace. Great outside dining area. Well landscaped, most enjoyable. Wonderful for entertaining. Wonderful for relaxing. Wonderful for private sunbathing.
Enjoy horseback riding, biking, spring baseball training, golf, hiking, all are within close proximity . We are located in the north end of the Valley of the Sun, anything that Phoenix or Scottsdale has to offer is no further than an hour away or less. Sedona Az. is a good hour north. Tonto National Forest, Bartlett Lake 15-30 minutes east. A great location for city access and real desert living and exploring. Great hikes to indian ruins and parks (Spur Cross, Tonto National Park, Browns Ranch). All very close. Within walking distance is the post office, grocery store, farmers market, very fine dining, cowboy dining, wine bars, shops and local live music.
Just a Gem! You won't go wrong! And we will make every effort to make sure you are happy.

The Carefree Life
The thermometer read just fifty two
And my wife, who’s not a moaner,
Said “Take me away to somewhere warm,
I’ve never been to Arizona.”
So I searched the Net for several hours,
You have to tread warily, see?
But in the end I found us a place,
And its name was Painted Carefree.
There was no doubt, we had to go
And explore the state of Arizona.
A couple of emails, and we’re already friends
With Susan, the property owner.
Four days in Flagstaff to acclimatize
Then we drove down the I 17,
Finding the house was easy because
It’s the most colorful house to be seen.
The painted house was cool, I mean cool(!),
Full of art and rugs and treasures
And so was the pool, in a watery way,
We could splash around there at our leisure.
We were keen to film the wildlife,
And there, just over the wall
Were Mr. and Mrs. Javelina,
With their baby, all stripey and small.
Then came a wily coyote
Strolling along by the wash
It was all so terribly exciting,
What else would we see, oh my gosh!
But later that day, close up to the lens
Was the prettiest thing you could look at,
Taking a drink, with its whiskers all wet.
Was a shy and magnificent bobcat!
We’ve had our fun, enjoyed the sun
There’s been so much to attract us
We loved the hills and critters too
And the amazing saguaro cactus.
The time has come to pack our bags
With a feeling of deflation,
But it’s been just great, a memorable time
What a wonderful vacation!
