Heading down to the awesome state of Arizona and looking for the best Phoenix AirBNBs? You asked. I answered. This is the ultimate guide to the only AirBNBs in Phoenix you need to know! 

Known to locals as “The Valley Of The Sun” or simply “The Valley”, the city of Phoenix is the fifth biggest city – population-wise – in the U.S. But it doesn’t get nearly as much attention as it deserves! 

The desert city is the capital of the great state of Arizona and has the best variety of landscapes you could ever hope to stumble across. There’s the bright lights of the city and its million-and-one things to do. There’s towering mountains and deep valleys. Historical Native American reservations and affluent resort getaways. Oh – and a shitload of golf courses. 

Best Phoenix Airbnbs


One of the best things about visiting Phoenix is that space is readily available for a super affordable price. Properties are large, breezy and amazing value for money. And solid air conditioning is standard – because it stays damn hot down here most of the year ! 

In addition to having room to breathe, you can take a daytrip from Phoenix to so many other cool cities, towns and famous landmarks. Scottsdale, Mesa and Tempe are mere minutes away and Tucson is 90 minutes. Even the Grand Canyon is just 3.5 hours away. 

The best of the great outdoors is at your fingertips in Phoenix, but first you’ll need a first class AirBNB to rest your head….

I’ve pulled together my list of the 16 best Phoenix AirBNBs to ensure an awesome Arizona getaway.

1) Charming Boho Farm Carriage House in Heart of Downtown

“The Best Overall Phoenix AirBNB”

Location: Roosevelt Row, Downtown Phoenix 

AirBNB Plus: Yes 

Superhost: Yes

Price: $120+ USD per night 

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/15874816

The accommodation offerings were so impressive in the Arizona capital, it was tough to pick the best overall Phoenix AirBNB – but then I saw this AirBNB Plus offering. Right in the heart of Downtown Phoenix’s coolest district, this one bedroom carriage house is treehouse-inspired and boho chic. It has a terrace, and there’s a garden, chicken coop, orchard and outdoor seating areas on the property. This is a gorgeous, rustic little retreat that is just a few blocks from the city centre, public transport, shops, restaurants and charming farmers markets. Over 100 thrilled guests have given this refreshing abode a perfect score and a rave review. What else could you need? 

Guest review: “We loved our stay here, and wish it could’ve been longer. Set within a beautiful garden space and stocked with fresh eggs and other supplies, the Carriage House is airy, comfy and stylish – we quickly felt at home and were able to wind down and relax after a hectic road tour. Caroline and her family were welcoming, friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of local tips for cafes, eateries and markets – we recommend Lola Coffee, a great cafe just minutes away! (Phoenix Art Museum is also worth visiting – an easy 20-minute walk.) The neighbourhood is safe and quiet, and Caroline’s garden is a wonderful space to sit and relax in (you can watch the chooks and spend time with the cats). The Carriage House was a real find, and has been one of our favourite Airbnb experiences. Thanks again!” – Ron

Guest review: “This apartment was the perfect home base for our trip to Phoenix. It was centrally located with major highways, grocery stores, restaurants, and retail only a short drive away. The complex’s clubhouse is also just a short walk, and it was great to be able to take advantage of relaxing by the pool/hot tub and even getting a workout in at the great gym while on vacation. Communication with Rob was extremely easy and our stay overall was excellent – it is easy to see why this property has become a “plus” listing.” – Allison

Guest review: “Our family enjoyed a Pre-Thanksgiving reunion and I truly have to say that the villa was very impressive. It is a very personal, private, secluded area to enjoy a getaway from the norm. It was very enjoyable watching the family play basketball, miniature golf, shoot pool, and relax in the hot tub. The most enjoyment was the woman all gathered in the kitchen sharing recipes and creating fantastic meals for the family. There was enough space to accommodate the family. Almost forgot to mention the outdoor fireplace with the big screen tv. We grabbed blankets, watched tv and at times acted a little silly performing and singing. The Massive Villa is definitely on our list to revisit. We will never stay in another hotel again. Thanks Becca for creating this awesome AirBNB.” – Eva

Location: Melrose District

AirBNB Plus: Yes

Superhost: Yes

Price: $130+ USD per night

9) Cowboy Bunkhouse in North Scottsdale

Location: North Scottsdale 

AirBNB Plus: Yes 

Superhost: Yes 

Price: $120+ USD per night 

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21694824

The city of Scottsdale, Arizona is just 20 short minutes from Downtown Phoenix, and many visitors to the city opt to stay here instead. It’s also a great excuse to check in at the spa resorts and world class golf courses the small city is renowned for. But this AirBNB blows all that out of the water. The two bedroom AirBNB Plus guesthouse is one of my favorite AirBNBs I’ve even stumbled across. The western-inspired pad is so eclectic, so cool and so country, with vintage cowboy decor, a Mexican tile fireplace and a spacious patio. You’ll feel like John Wayne bunkering down in “the bunkhouse”, and its location makes it super easy to explore Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Phoenix and many other historic Old West locations in this pocket of Arizona. 

Guest review: “What an amazing experience! Our family of four loved everything about the bunkhouse. Sara and Cliff were so thoughtful and attentive and went out of their way to spend time with us and give the backstory about all the authentic items in the bunkhouse. My husband was like a kid soaking up the history and stories. The beds were super comfortable, plenty of space and felt cozy. Every detail has been taken care of for you. This has been our favorite Airbnb experience and we will be back. My sister, who lives in the area, says this will be her go-to for folks who travel to town as well. Enjoy!!” – Lissa
