Why Don Fenstermaker To ensure inquiries are received, always email and call us! chose Skyranch At Carefree

You will love our home for all reasons we love it! It is situated in the foothills of the the high desert just to the North of Scottsdale. With a short and very scenic drive, you will be in some of the very best shopping and restaurants Scottsdale has to offer. While, at the same time, you are also located in the stunning beauty of Carefree. There really is no better place to be in Arizona.

What makes this house unique

Probably the most unique features of our home is its proximity to such a diverse offering of recreation, shopping, dining, major sporting events like the Phoenix Open, and the Super Bowl, one-of-a-kind special events like the Barrett-Jackson Classic Auto Auction and The Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the season-ending event on the Champions Tour, returns to Desert Mountain Club’s Cochise course. We have all of this, and are situated only minutes from the pristine high desert and mountains of the Tonto National Forest.

Beautiful home! Comfortable, bright, open!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with great decor. The home definitely has an aviation theme which was perfect given that it is located on the Sky Ranch Air Field. Very nice patio in back. Beautiful landscaping — the home and development were maintained to highest standards. The location is ideal. The property is minutes to downtown Carefree and near grocery stores, restaurants and shops. Sky Ranch is in close vicinity of some world-class golf courses. The location also borders the Tonto National Forest to the North and East offering much to explore. There are great hiking opportunities nearby. It is a beautiful setting for a wonderful stay. The caretakers of the property were wonderful. Though we had no problems, they were always available and willing to answer any questions we might have. I highly recommend this property.

Great location, great property

  • 1 of 5

Loved this house rental, great location, easy access and the owners were very easy to deal with, all the information they provided was helpful and we didn't need to contact them for anything. The house was clean and well maintained. It was very cool to watch the planes take off and land from the patio although a little noisy first thing in the morning if you aren't an early riser.

Wonderful place to stay....

  • 5 of 5

Two couples from South Dakota having fun in the desert. This home worked out perfectly for everything we wanted to do. Decorated nicely with the aviation theme and plenty of living space for relaxing and dining. We enjoyed the various aircraft that flew in and out of Sky Ranch during the day and the close location to the unique eateries in Cave Creek. Mari was quick to respond to any questions we had and wanted to make sure we were having an enjoyable experience in Arizona. 5 Stars for us!

We had a great time! The house was everything they said it would be! Great location with a wonderful sense of community. The airplane take offs in the backyard was a lot of fun to watch. We would highly recommend the seamless customer service and all that went with it!

I'm staying.

  • 5 of 5

I like this area so much I decided to stay. Two small towns close by provide plenty of evening entertainment while the Sonoran Desert offers golf, hiking and many other recreational opportunities. The house is very nice - interesting architecture, clean and very well equipped. The owner responded quickly and was a pleasure to work with. Five stars.
