We stayed at the Villas at Carefree Resort for a week . We had contacted them direct and been able to secure a Delux Sonoran Villa.
As we drove from Phoenix airport after a 2 hour flight delay, British Airways Bless 'em, we thought we were going to the middle of nowhere ! It was so dark ! The reception was excellent and we had our tea delivered to the unit.
The Villa was enormous and very well appointed, but the view from the balcony was breathtaking, we would just stand and stare for most of our stay. If you want desert and cactus and rabbits and quail and birds and owls and coyotes and wild pig and road runners, then you must stay here. All were seen from our balcony. And the view continued across to the mountains.
All the staff were very helpful and the on site restaurant was very good quality and value. The swimming pool in the villas area has to be seen and most of the time we were the only two there, amazing !
We are certainly planning to return.
