2 Bedroom Casita in a golf resort in Carefree, AZ Carefree, Arizona
Additional Location Information
This casita is located in a quiet area where no sounds but those of nature will disturb you. Enjoy peaceful breakfasts in the front courtyard or watch the sun setting on the rear patio. Beautiful Sonoran desert and mountain views surround you and the stars shine brightly in the night sky. You are minutes away from the 'neighborhood' swimming pool, as well as opportunities for tennis and golf. Hiking and horseback riding are available in the nearby Cave Creek Recreation Area and Spur Cross Ranch. Restaurants and shopping opportunities exist in both Carefree and Cave Creek. Museums and culture abound in nearby Scottsdale and Phoenix; The amazing Musical Instrument Museum is 20 minutes away. There are jeep tours in the Cave Creek area taking people to view Indian ruins and petroglyphs. The beautiful red rocks of Sedona are 2 hours north (where many Pink Jeep tours exist) and the magnificent Grand Canyon is but a 4 1/2 hour drive. The magical Najavo and Hopi Reservations are within a few hours' drive. There is no public transportation but the Blue Shuttle operates between Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and Carefree as well as independent limousine and taxi services.
Newly opened in Scottsdale in 2015 is the Scottsdale Museum of the West which is home to a variety of western art and cultural items; the architecture of the building is dramatic and fitting to the subject. Also, family recent is the nation's largest butterfly enclosure off the 101 on the east side of Scottsdale. A tour begins with a 3-D movie with butterflies fluttering overhead! It will entertain even those who profess no interest!

“An oasis to relax in a destination of many adventures”
My wife and I spent a wonderful two weeks in this lovely casita located in the northwestern portion of the Boulders Resort in Carefree, AZ. We had several visits from wildlife: roadrunners, javelinas, and bobcats. The casita is well positioned to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or breakfast in the front courtyard or a glass of wine and watch the sunset on the western, rear patio. The casita is well furnished with a 'western' flair and boasts a fully equipped kitchen for entertaining or preparing a meal for a relaxing evening. We found it just what we were looking for and we hope to return at another time of year- perhaps in May to see the wild flowers. There is so much to do in the area in addition to golf, tennis, and swimming- there are numerous hikes for the nature enthusiast, Indian ruins like Sears Kay, and places to take horseback trail rides. Of course in March, there is the Cactus League - spring baseball training which is always fun to attend. This casita is the perfect oasis for relaxing and place to return to after enjoying all the adventures nearby.

“Relaxing in the beautiful arizona desert”
We spent 2 weeks at this Casita and would recommend to all as easy going and beautiful place to stay. The grounds are very well maintained with two patios with tables and chairs for both. The back patio has a gas grille. The interior is very well appointed. The master bedroom is very spacious with a King, separate shower and a Jacuzzi. Views and access to back patio. The second bedroom is a little smaller but has a tub, shower and large walkin closet. The great room is very comfortable and makes you feel just like home. The best part, everything is on one level, no stairs! The location is central to both Carfree and Cave creek, and the gated security is very reassuring.

“lovely stay in the beautiful aZ desert”
We stayed for vacation over Christmas and New Year's. The house was charming, affordable and perfect for our family of 3. The king sized bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, and the large master bathroom was spacious. The owners were wonderful to rent from and we would stay again in a heartbeat. We saw wildlife in the backyard and enjoyed walks in the quiet neighborhood. The weather was gorgeous,(although a little chilly at night) and Boulder's Resort is a golfer's paradise. Our daughter loved swimming in the heated outdoor pool at the Boulder's Golf Club. The only thing that would have made the stay even more perfect would be to have internet service and a DVD player.
Response from the owner, Carefree, AZ casita - 01/05/2014
Thank you Willow, We're glad that you had a good stay in our Casita; there was a DVD player there last year and we assumed it was still there; I'm sorry for that oversight. The listing says that there is no internet and we are working on getting it installed; I assure you that we will have it available by next season. Happy New Year.
This was our second long stay in this Casita (6 weeks). We love the comfortable, homey atmosphere, location within the Boulders Resort property. The front and back patios are convenient for grilling, dining and relaxing. We have felt at home the minute we arrive. The master suite is large with the washer and dryer in the toilet area, double sinks, walk in closet and separate tub and shower. The kitchen is fully stocked with every pot and pan you could possibly need. We cooked simply or ate out but it was nice to know I could make something more elaborate if I wanted to. The location is one of the reasons we rented this casita. We love the proximity to Carefree Village center with its grocery, shops and restaurants while not being in a super crowded area. The town of Cave Creek is just down the road with a twice weekly bull riding, library, postoffice and innumerable restaurants and shops. The Casita is close to highways and good roads to access all sights in the Greater Phoenix area. Really can't say anything negative about our stay at this property. This is a free standing home and as such is a do it yourself property.

So happy we will see you again next spring; today we had rain and cool climes for October but snow birds are returning. The wildlife has been and is around and eating our plantings when they can get to them!

“We felt very much "at home" in the casita.”
The home is spacious and well set up for 4 guests. It is well stocked with household supplies and kitchen ware, including a backyard BBQ grill! It is an older,but clean and comfortable space. We were not concerned that it was not totally updated with the latest and greatest decor... although newer beds and bedding would be nice.We liked the Southwest ambience of this home and really enjoyed the views and watching the abundant wild life outdoors. This is a home we would purchase for ourselves if we moved to az! The location was central to all our activities in and around Cave Creek and Carefree, and having the gated security was very reassuring to us. We scored it an a Plus and would absolutely return!

Thanks, Jan, We've replaced the great room drapes and the refrigerator so we continue to update; we loved having you and looking forward to seeing you and Jim again this winter. sue
“Lovely Casita in Carefree, AZ”
We certainly enjoyed our stay in this lovely casita (spanish for small house) in Carefree, AZ. The casita is located in the Boulders area which is an upscale residential community with many attractive homes and excellent arizonia senery. Even though the housing density is relatively high in this area, the casita offers adequate privicy. The home is nicely furnished. The only complant we have is that the selection of TV stations was minimal.
Response from the owner, Carefree, AZ casita - 10/02/2013
Thank you Chuck, I'm sorry we didn't know about your desire for more TV channels; we could easily have added to the existing service. Many folks don't care for TV so we just offer basic, unless more is requested. Glad you enjoyed the area and your time in Carefree.
“Wonderful stay at this charming Casita in this premier desert re”
We had the pleasure of staying at this very comfortable, spacious, nicely furnished and well supplied Casita. If two couples share the stay, the layout with 2 bedroom suites at opposite sides of the Casita provide ample privacy. The owners, Sue and Bill, were very congenial and helpful from the outset and answered all our questions as well as provided recommendations for activities that may be of interest and restaurants outside The Boulders. (We highly recommend the Horny Toad as a must see offsite restaurant in Carefree -- the food was excellent and the decor charming and unique.) This Casita is located in a very nice, quiet location within The Boulders property and you are pleasantly surrounded by the features of the dessert terrain. The Boulders itself is outstanding and one of the premier resorts in the Southwest. I can personally highly recommend both of its two excellent golf courses, should you have the opportunity to play there -- two tips: 1) most of the greens break towards downtown Phoenix and 2) stay away from the 'jumping choia' no matter how innocuous they look ! The Golden Door Spa and other facilities of the resort are excellent should you wish to pay the fee to use during your stay and the staff and concierge service were excellent as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and are very much looking forward to a return visit.
“A good vacation!”
The time I spent in this wonderful, comfortable casita was truly a good vacation! I liked the proximity to good shops , a variety of restaurants and museums and to Carefree, parks to walk in and enjoy nature, Phoenix and Sedona. The relaxing atmosphere of the interior and the exterior, and the front courtyard , of the house was indeed pleasing. The owners left an informative packet which was helpful in planning my stay. I am already planning my next trip here for 2013.

We'll look forward to your visit next year; we're happy you enjoyed your stay at our casita
We had access to the resort workout facilities, had a garage door opener and an automatic gate opener, plus in unit washer and dryer, jacuzzi tub and barbeque grille. We so enjoyed the homes spacious interior and outstanding location within easy walking distance to Carefree town, access off Scottsdale Road to Cave Creek and all other locations in the area. There are restaurants, hikes, museums and attractions too numerous to mention within no more than a half hour drive and many more a longer distance away but well worth the trip. Anyone interested in Spring training has a plethora of choices in the immediate area. A car is necessary to fully enjoy this location. This casita is located in a beautiful resort with many lovely plantings, desert and cart paths for walking. It is quite comfortable inside with a king sized bed in the master bedroom and a lovely large master bath with the laundry room and walk in closet included. Second twin bedroom has an ensuite bath. Kitchen was movre than adequate for the entertaining and regular meals that I prepared. We welcomed three sets of guests during our stay and I had a sewing area set up in the master bedroom overlooking the lovely desert backyard. We loved our stay and plan to be back again this year for six weeks. You can't go wrong here and you just might see deer and havelinas munching on the schrubs in the back yard...we did.

“Pleasant, comfortable residence in a wonderful location”
The home has a nice layout with a great room in the middle and sleeping areas at each end, which gives it a spacious living area with private bedrooms. The location is perfect for desert hikes, golf, cultural events in Scottsdale and Phoenix, day trips in all directions and some fun festivals and restaurants right in Carefree and Cave Creek. The owners are gracious and eager to please their guests. A packet of information is left in the home to give you all sorts of suggestions for enjoying this delightful area. We highly recommend it.
