Recent Colorado River Area reviews

  • Great Location and House

    "My family and I spent the weekend here and wished we could have stayed longer. The owner was very responsive and met all our needs. The house was clean and comfortable. The AC worked great and they had all the kitchen stuff we needed. The beds were very comfortable to sleep in and the deck was the perfect size for the kids and dog to play on. We will definitely return."

  • Excellent experience

    "The condo is in excellent shape. All one level. It has all the items one needs but never thinks of until they are there, like toaster, Bar b que, wifi, cable and so on. The condo was very clean and comfortable. But I think the best part was how easy the owner was to work with, right from the first contact to the final return of the deposit. If it was not all ready booked for next year I would certainly rent it again."

  • Heaven In Havasu

    "Awesome house. My family rented this house to celebrate a birthday. We found the house to be a perfect lay out. Bedrooms are great size. The location was close to all the amenities we needed. The pictures don't do his house justice. No complaints here just a lot of great memories. We hope to come back and stay here again."

  • Perfect first time visit

    "We rented this home for a short period in February 2015 and enjoyed every moment. Coffee on the patio in the mornings; BBQ's with friends in the evening as we watched the incredible sunsets. Quiet neighbourhood - great area for early morning walks with the dogs - close to shopping and all of the activities at the lake. Teresa was responsive and accommodating and made it a priority to stop by the house to meet us. The entire experience was a pleasure."

Colorado River Area Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit West Arizona Vacation Rentals

West Arizona enjoys a warm year-round climate. This makes it an ideal vacation destination. Even when most people in the United States are hiding under layers of clothing, visitors to Arizona can be enjoying water sports without having to put on a wetsuit. Lake Havasu is one of the region's great attractions along with the mighty Colorado River. The western part of Arizona is therefore a favorite destination for those who enjoy water sports. The summer months can get particularly hot and most people prefer to visit during the cooler winter months when the daytime temperatures aren't quite as scorching.

Fun in the Sun at West Arizona River Rentals

Many of the vacation homes in western Arizona are located along the lakeshore of Lake Havasu or on the banks of the Colorado River. This provides easy access to the water for a wide range of water sports. Power boating and waterskiing are favorite pastimes. During the school vacation season, you can see many families enjoying a day out on the water. Jet Skis are sometimes available to rent or you can bring your own along. Sailing is another popular activity on the lake. For people who prefer more leisurely activities, the waters offer excellent fishing opportunities. Find out from the locals about the best lakeshore fishing spots and you may be able to hook some bass, crappie or bluegill.

If you prefer to stay on land, there are many nature trails to explore along the lakeshore. There are also several wildlife sanctuaries where you can go birdwatching. The Havasu National Wildlife Refuge is home to some of North America's rarest bird species such as the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher and the Yuma Clapper Rail. No visit to Arizona is complete without seeing the countryside from the saddle. There are local outfitters that offer horseback rides in Western Arizona. For anyone who has an interest in history, there are several museums which have interesting exhibits showcasing the area's culture and history.

Interesting Landmarks near West Arizona Vacation Homes

Perhaps one of the most famous landmarks is London Bridge. This bridge once spanned the Thames in London but was decommissioned because it started sinking into the river. A local industrialist purchased the bridge from the British government, had it dismantled and shipped to Arizona. There it was rebuilt and now stands tall as a famous landmark of Lake Havasu City. The bridge was officially opened in 1971 and every year there is an annual 10-day festival that takes place to commemorate the bridge.

Yuma is an interesting area where you can see many historic sites. These include seeing an old Wild West prison cell and the Quartermaster Depot. There is also the Sanguinetti House Museum in Yuma. All of these historic landmarks provide some unique insight into life of the Wild West in Arizona during the 1800s.

Oatman is a quaint old-fashioned gold mining town that can be found along the famous Route 66. The town is characterized by old shops and saloons where you can enjoy some western style. The town has some resident wild burros that forage around town for carrots and other treats from visitors.
