Planning a trip and looking for the best Airbnb Scottsdale AZ rentals? Read my Scottsdale Airbnb guide complete with the city’s best vacation rentals. From luxury to stays to cheap rentals, this is the most up to date one-stop-shop for the best Airbnb in Scottsdale offerings in 2020.

Just 30 minutes from the state capital of Phoenix, Scottsdale is another top Arizona city to add to your “Grand Canyon State” bucket list. 

Two such excellent cities in such close proximity is hard to come by, and Scottsdale lives up to the reputation of its larger neighbor. The laidback yet affluent city is renowned for its spas, resorts and its golf clubs, and draws in tourists year-round thanks to its mostly mild climate – the perks of being a desert city! 

Airbnb Scottsdale

 

Besides teeing off on the green and indulging in some rejuvenating spa therapies, Scottsdale is an attractive, historic city that is the jumping-off point for some of the state’s best hiking trails. That Sonoran landscape really serves up the most exceptional outdoor lifestyle, but if you’re more of an indoor kinda traveler, you’ll love its world class restaurants, galleries and shopping centers. 

So if you’re heading down here and searching for the perfect Airbnb Scottsdale rental to call home for a short while, I’ve compiled a ton of amazing options!

Superhost: Yes 

Price: $100+ USD per night

Five minutes from Old Town Scottsdale, this one-bedroom condo is my pick for the best AirBNB in Scottsdale. The AirBNB Plus pad is the perfect blend of renovated modern minimalism and bohemian design, and is just a mile from Scottsdale Stadium, Fashion Square Mall and so many top dining, drinking and shopping establishments. The hosts are so thoughtful and really set the benchmark for Scottsdale AirBNBs. 

Guest review: “This condo was wonderful and welcoming. It wasn’t like staying at an AirBNB, it was like staying at your Mum’s house because everything is supplied. There was fresh fruit, bagels, English muffins, eggs, tea, coffee, juices, cereals and milk. We couldn’t eat/drink it all. The condo is very spacious and comfortable. The bed was super comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need to do some light cooking. Location was close to everything you need in Scottsdale & peaceful. I never heard a peep out of any of the neighbors. The only negative thing I could say is the air conditioner was pretty loud when running. All in all a wonderful stay in Scottsdale & I would definitely recommend Gail’s condo.” – Loren

Create a Sterling & AZ Turquoise Ring

This turquoise is AAA grade and hand cut and picked for color and quality. In our 3 hours together, we will learn to size, texture, form, and solder our ring. We will then use a bezel setting to hold the stone and apply it to the ring. Polishing the piece is next and then we will set the stone to complete this unique ring for you to wear home or give as a gift for that someone special.

He cares about us very much and gave us additional information about what to do and don’t. He kept reminding us to take more water due to hot weather and have a box of water prepared for us. He does suggest we depart slightly earlier than the planned time to avoid extreme weather and we are lucky to have listened to his advice. The Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend are a must-see when you are in Phoenix. It’s mesmerizing!!!” – Irene, Australia
