Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Carefree Fore

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Welcome to my beautiful Carefree desert home. Some listings show picture of a 4 plex and show description as villa - when in fact it is condo in the complex. Home is beautifully landscaped. First time guests when they walked in their comment was - WOW what a fantastic home. This property is located in Carefree, Arizona within a 5 minute walk of Desert Forest Golf Club. Property is just north of The Boulders Resort Desert Forest Golf Club and Carefree Resort - easy walking too shopping, dining and entertianment. If you are looking for a home to enjoy for one week or longer - this is your ideal location. Combination of home location, decorating and proximity to all the amenities you may want to enjoy while on vacation - makes this home your ideal choice. Plus home comes with upgraded Cable TV package including the premium channels. Plus high speed internet service.

My house is a spcaious 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom 2,800 square foot home with close to 2,000 square feet of additional covered outdoor space, high ceilings and fantasitc views of both desert and mountian. Many homes in area have dated decorating/furniture - not this home. You will find it bright and full of art for your enjoyment. Complimenting the home is the spacious outdoor sitting area with custom made furniture - with significant amount being covered area for your enjoyment. In addition, the outdoor fire place with sitting area will allow you to enjoy your surroundings to the fullest. The home has wall / wrought iron fencing around property with abundant vegatation to enjoy and provide the property with a very private feel.

House has 3 bedrooms - set up as split master with master having King bed, second bedroom has queen and third bedroom has pull out sofa queen. Open design gives home a spacious feel and allows you to interact with guests while in kitchen/dining or living room. High ceilings give home a very spacious feel for your enjoyment.

The abundance of outdoor sititng area will allow you to chose your scenery to view. Chose between desert, Black Mountian or mountain views to the north. Sit outside at night and listen the coyotes as you enjoy the fireplace and admire the fantastic Arizona sunset.

Home is in the north end of the Valley - away from the city lights and affords the visitor with fantastic night sky to enjoy, abundant wildlife and the feel that you are truly liviing a carefree lifestyle. The only problem is - you will find it hard to leave at the end of your stay.

Carefree - the lifestyle and area says it all. I loved the north part of the valley. Abundance of wildlife and desert scenery and fantastic views exceed what is offered by other parts of the Phoenix area.

A Lovely Spot for a Carefree Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home with its three en-suite bedrooms and multiple outdoor patio areas was a great gathering place for our family members, who travelled there for Christmas from their homes in Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The clean, well-equipped house provided a variety of ways for us to comfortably spread out or come together throughout the week.The living room with its cozy fireplace and large-screen television was a favorite spot for some while others enjoyed quiet moments reading in the adjacent sitting area. And our dog happily wandered the large enclosed outside area from which he could watch through the fence for rabbits or javelinas that inhabit the neighborhood. It's a nice quiet neighborhood with a rural desert feel while still very close to the center of Carefree.

Retreat in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week in this beautiful home. The pictures don't do it justice. It was a pleasant surprise to see the kitchen well stocked with all the essentials along with beverages and snacks. We spent our days hiking locally and used it as our base camp for Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Spent quiet and relaxing evenings on the outdoor patio with the fire roaring. Tim was responsive and extremely helpful, the ideal host. We hope we can get back again soon.

Wow. Just wow. Comfortable, Clean, Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

As VRBO veterans, we've stayed in a lot of homes in the west and beyond and this is the most well-equipped vacation rental we've ever seen. The bedroom suites are all comfortable and private, the yard is impeccably maintained, the kitchen is incredibly outfitted and the outdoor living areas are extraordinary. Loved sitting on the big, comfy furniture around the fireplace or during a gentle rain under the expansive lanai. Tim is amazing, too: responsive, helpful and very kind. We so appreciated having the dogs with us and they loved their time at this retreat. We're going back next spring, there isn't a better endorsement than that!

Just Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spacious home, with a wonderful outdoor setting complete with a lovely fire pit which my sons enjoyed every night. Restaurants galore close by. Home is on a peaceful street and the owner was attentive and kind. We were greeted with a fridge with cold drinks and some staples. It was a wonderful vacation. We highly recommend this property!

Beautiful Home in Carefree

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The place is in very good shape, has lots of space, and has large patios with gorgeous views. The owner was easy to communicate and do business with beforehand, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that he had cold refreshments waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived! We spent 6 days there before, during and after our wedding at the nearby resort, and found that the house was a nice, relaxing place for our family and friends to stop by and visit with us. We will definitely want to rent the place again the next time we are in town.
