  • Short Getaway

    "A nice place close to town. It was very nice and clean. I would not recommend it for little kids though. There's not much floor space for them to run around. We enjoyed the wood burning stove, but once the little ones got there, we could no longer use it. The only negative was that the dining room chairs had little to no padding. You kind of sank when you sat down. It's a good adult short get away spot. Would definitely go there again."

  • Townhouse on Rainbow Lake - great find

    "This was the 2nd time my family has stayed at this location. It is perfect for us. Right in the heart of everything. We go up for the Fall Festival and it is less than a 10 minute drive. Close to restaurants, shopping, antiques, etc. Very comfortable home - we love the fireplace!"

  • Excellent place for a ski getaway!

    "Buddy's cabin was a beautiful home that was exactly as described, and more! Plenty of space for many people and only 40 minutes from the slopes. It was so cozy and even had game room and pool table with a sound system to hook up an iPhone. Buddy was great with communication and we felt welcome in his fully-equipped home. This house is great for all individuals, from families to graduate students like ourselves. I highly recommend this cabin and wouldn't hesitate to go there again. Thanks again, Buddy!"

Best Time of Year to Visit Arizona Vacation Rentals

Arizona is a state that is known for its warm climate. Even in the winter months, you can enjoy warm sunshine almost every day. The north central part of Arizona is at an altitude of between 2,000 and 3,000 meters; because of this, seasonal temperatures are milder than in other parts of Arizona. This means that during the summertime, you can enjoy a wide variety of activities without feeling as though you will get scorched by the summer sun. You still need to have adequate sun protection of hats and sunscreen and make sure you drink plenty of water. Towards the end of summer, from July to mid-September, you can expect the occasional thunderstorm. The winter months are relatively short-lived, lasting only a month or two from November through December. Daytime temperatures can still be pleasantly warm but after the sun sets, the temperatures can plummet to below freezing. Ideally, you should dress in layers so you are not caught unprepared for the sudden temperature changes. Some snowfalls can occur in winter. Spring runs from January to April, and is one of the most pleasant seasons to visit. Fall season is also particularly beautiful as the turning leaves blend in with the red rock landscapes.
