Looking for the best Airbnb in Arizona for your next trip to the desert? We’re here to help you out with these suggestions.
There’s a reason snowbirds flock to Arizona for half of the year. With practically perfect winter weather and an abundance of sunshine all year long it’s hard to not enjoy your time in this southwest paradise.
You’ll find ancient saguaro cacti in the desert expanses of the south, unusual red rock formations in Sedona, and pine and aspen forests up north giving you a taste of the variety of impressive landscapes the state has to offer. The only thing that could make your trip even more memorable is finding the ideal Arizona Airbnb.
Airbnbs can be a great option when traveling as they allow you to stay in accommodations more unique to the area as opposed to setting up camp in a generic hotel room. They also allow you to connect with locals and often are kinder on your wallet than a hotel would be.
So go ahead and take a look through our list of unique suggestions and find the best Airbnb in Arizona for you.
15 Best Airbnbs In Arizona (Cabins, VRBOs and More!)
A-Frame Mountain View Cabin In A National Forest
Another beautiful A-frame cabin option awaits you at the edge of the Coconino National Forest in Flagstaff. This is the perfect Airbnb in Arizona to immerse yourself in nature and feel like you have the world to yourselves.
And when you get sick of the people you’re rooming with, you can venture just a short distance away to the Sunset Crater Volcano or Wupatki National Monuments, or tackle a section of the Arizona Trail at Walnut Canyon. If you’re an avid skier you might also want to try the slopes at the Arizona Snowbowl.
You also have access to 3 mountain bikes, a BBQ grill for whipping up a delicious dinner, firewood to keep you warm on a winter night, and binoculars for star gazing at the clear skies free from light pollution.
You will have some cellphone reception at the cabin, but you might choose to set down your phone and challenge your friends and family to a board game or read your favorite book. Peace, quiet, and a whole lot of Flagstaff wilderness are waiting for you at this Arizona Airbnb.
The Kiva Cave Creek
We weren’t kidding when we said our suggestions were unique. This incredibly unusual Cave Creek, Arizona Airbnb is built underground in the form of a kiva with a little sleeping loft to crawl into at night (or a pull-out couch for the less nimble).
Kivas originated as structures designed by the southwest Pueblo people who created these underground rooms for ceremonial purposes.
Though this particular Airbnb in Arizona is largely underground, there are plenty of aboveground windows letting sunlight stream into the cozy space. And if you step outside you’ll find ancient saguaro cacti scattered around the desert and a refreshingly clear view of the stars lighting up the night sky.
You might also enjoy a vibrant Arizona sunset while sitting around the fire pit. This Cave Creek kiva is certainly an Arizona Airbnb experience you’ll be telling your friends about when you get home.
