  • Spring Break 2014

    "This was our 3rd time staying on rainbow lake at the townhouse, and we can't wait to go back for number four! If you are looking for something relaxing and within easy driving distance of restaurants and all else pinetop has to offer, this is it. Until we buy our own place up in the mountains, we won't stay anywhere else."

  • Excellent Spot

    "Our second visit to this home and it was even better than last year. The location, convenient to everything, with that spectacular green space mountain view is ideal. The neighborhood, quiet and safe, can't be beat. The house is well maintained and furnished. I can't think of anything the owners haven't remembered. It's truly a great find."

  • Relaxing Get-Away

    "The Cottage on Walden is a great destination to get out of the heat of Phoenix and just relax. The cottage is cozy and offers everything you may need - comfortable bed, good bathroom and shower, well-stocked kitchen - just bring the food, reliable WIFI. The yard is delightful and sitting under the huge willow tree is fantastic. Nanci, the owner, is a lovely lady and easy to work with. I would say the cottage is perfect for 2 people and their dogs!"

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.
