Beautiful home in Carefree

  • 5 of 5

Came here with our family for my daughter's wedding. This is a beautiful home and was a perfect location for us as the wedding was at the Carefree Inn and Resort. Property was clean and well maintained. Layout of bedrooms was a bit different, but having read other reviews we knew exactly what we were getting and it worked out just fine for us. We had a fairly large group that included 10 of our family including mother-in-law, kids,spouses and grandkids. Great location and layout for entertaining some of the guests from our wedding too. Took a little getting used to the lighting layout, but that was a minor issue. Great value for a larger group. We would definitely come back.

Peaceful & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful & relaxing property. We enjoyed just sitting on the back patio watching the wildlife. The house was larger than expected. We really enjoyed using the chefs kitchen to entertain some friends that were passing through. Thanks to the owner for recommending some local establishments. Great stay, plan on staying again next year.

Beautiful but with partially disfunctional floor plan

  • 4 of 5

This property is large, well-appointed and beautiful; however, there are a few details that DEFINITELY should have been explained on the website. Most importantly is that 2 of the bedrooms can only be accessed by either going THROUGH the master bedroom or OUTSIDE along the back of the house and back inside via a door by the pool. There is a small bathroom with a shower adjacent to the pool area that is accessible only from outside of the house that is near those 2 bedrooms, but otherwise they would be sharing the master bath with the occupants of the master bedroom and it has NO DOOR whatsoever! That entire wing of the house is very awkward, to say the least. Our group was a bunch of close friends who were willing to make it work, but it could definitely be a deal-breaker in some situations.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped except for a couple of areas that we believe were supposed to be water features of some sort (fountains?). They had stagnant water and were black and mildew-filled. We were there in February and the pool was filled, but there was no functioning heater. Freezing cold water is not attractive at that time of the year. Also disappointing was the fact that there was no hot tub.

All that being said, there are multiple really nice outdoor living spaces, the location is good and the house was clean.

Poor experience w/deposit refund & communication

  • 1 of 5

We had a great trip, the house is well equipped and has beautiful outdoor space. However the house is really a 3 BEDROOM. There are 2 bedrooms that you have to walk through the master to get to and you all share a bathroom. Not ideal unless using the rooms for children.

More importantly, our experience after we left has been unfortunate. When we left the house we reported issue with the code lock, 11 days after departure our deposit was returned (6 days late) and with no prior communication $250 was removed due to the lock. I've asked for an invoice and photos twice with no response.
