Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa and many other communities of the Greater Phoenix area are very popular destinations for those that are interested in escaping the harsh winters for some milder, desert adventures.

Looking for a Vacation Rental in the Phoenix / Scottsdale Area?

I am often contacted by people who are interested in finding a Phoenix area vacation rental. Why pick a vacation rental instead of staying in a hotel?

  • Larger, more comfortable accommodations.
  • Interested in bringing a pet.
  • Larger family gathering.
  • More privacy than in a hotel.
  • Full kitchens, laundry rooms, private pools and other amenities.
  • Preference for adult-only area.
  • Longer stays.


Usually has 100 or more vacation rental properties listed in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. You can filter the site for the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you are looking for, as well as the amenities that you desire for your rental. Photos are available for each property, and you can read reviews of the property. A calendar of availability is associated with each listing. Look for vacation rentals directly at TripAdvisor.

For people wanting to rent their homes using TripAdvisor's FlipKey service, you'll pay a small percentage to TripAdvisor for booked deals. List your vacation property with TripAdvisor FlipKey.


Has listings in cities and towns all over Arizona. In and around Phoenix, Arizona you'll find vacation rental listings in Apache Junction, Carefree, Chandler, Fountain Hills, Glendale, Litchfield Park, Mesa, Peoria, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sun City, Surprise, Tempe and just about every other city in the metro area.

You may search for listings by specific city and by the dates of your stay. Each property has photos for you to see and most have maps. If they allow pets or are handicap friendly, that will be noted. The short listing indicates how many bedrooms and bathrooms are in the vacation rentals, as well as the rental price. For more details, like restrictions, minimum stays, features of the property, any rate specials and calendar availability you can go to the detail for that property.

For people wanting to rent their homes using this service, you'll pay a fee for the listing, but there is no percentage paid on bookings. List your vacation property with VRBO.


Another vacation rental service with rentals listed in cities and towns all over the State of Arizona. See photos, reviews, sort and filter by several attributes. Calendar for availability. Some properties allow booking online with a credit card.

For people wanting to rent their homes using this service there is one annual fee to advertise your home; you keep 100% of your booking income. List your vacation property with HomeAway.

Since I live in the Phoenix area, and don't use vacation rentals here, I am not in a position to recommend any particular vacation rental that may be listed online.
