Not our first time there and can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this beautiful home in a great location before. Both times we found the home to be perfect for our group of 3 couples. It is well maintained, very clean, and the view is absolutely amazing. There is plenty of space for many more than 6 people. It's only a few minutes into everything that Carefree and Cave Creek have to offer. It is very quiet and while you are close to town, the home sits on a very large lot so you simply don't see or hear neighboring homes. The owners have always been very responsive to any questions and extremely fast to respond if you need anything at all. We really can't say enough good things about this home. We rate it A+++++.

Luxury, comfort, serenity, & seclusion

  • 5 of 5

Although there were only two of us, this property has ample space for several more, amazing views, and luxurious accommodations. It has become the gold standard, to which I now compare our vacations. Our stay this year in a presidential suite on the beach in Key West was amazing... but I still hold this home in Scottsdale in higher regard. I fear future vacations will pale in comparison... which means we will definitely have to stay at here again in the near future. An excellent combination of comfort, amenities, and seclusion, while still being within comfortable driving distance of plenty of activities. Solidly a five-star rental.

(Note: We actually stayed at the end of August 2015, which I was unable to enter because I was very late writing this review.)

Awesome house

Rented the house for a week in June, and loved it! Everything was as advertised, the owner was helpful, the neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. Highly recommended.

New Ringgold, Pa

Beautiful property with great views and amenities

  • 5 of 5

My wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Carefree area with this home being the center piece of our getaway. The homes proximity to Mountain Biking, Golf, dining was a great advantage for the type of vacation we enjoy. Everything that was mentioned in the preview was there plus a view that was incredible. We were able to cookout on the grill, relax in the the spa and enjoy the sound of the water feature while taking in the view.

We would certainly rent this property again and bringing more family members and friends to enjoy this spectacular home.

5 Star Home and Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional, spacious home for one or more families to share - much larger and more beautiful than the pictures even depict. It is set in a beautiful gated community that is like a desert paradise - tons of wildlife and hilltop views for miles! The home was equipped with everything we needed - even a crockpot and pool floats. We enjoyed hiking and dining in nearby Cave Creek - Hogs N Horses, El Encanto and Indigo Crow were favorites. We would highly recommend!

Close to Carefree restaurants and shopping. Spacious house, nicely appointed, with a great deck, pool and hot tub. All in good order. It will be a"go back" for us.
