With more than 40 million annual visitors, Phoenix has a thriving Airbnb market of homes in historic neighborhoods, eclectic districts and quiet suburbs on the fringes of town.

There’s a reason Phoenix is one of the fastest growing cities in the country: no other metro area offers the same blend of good weather, affordable cost of living and killer outdoor activities. Whether you’re here to visit or stay, there are hundreds of Airbnb rentals in Phoenix to choose from, though many can be hit or miss.

Here’s a look at 15 of our favorite Phoenix Airbnbs around the metro area with stellar reviews, comfortable living spaces and prime locations near the Valley of the Sun’s main attractions.

1. Studio B

Why you should stay here: A unique living space in one of Phoenix’s cherished historic districts.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Pets allowed: No

Studio B is a small but well-designed Airbnb in central Phoenix’s F. Q. Story Neighborhood Historic District, a ‘hood that dates back to the 1920s and a time when Phoenix had about 29,000 residents. This would fill about half of the Cardinals stadium, but we digress.

The studio blends indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly for an authentic city-in-the-desert experience. There’s an outdoor shower, a grey water line that feeds the surrounding desert garden and a private back patio with the perfect amount of extra room to relax.

Restaurants, grocery stores and parks, including the Japanese Friendship Gardens, are all within walking distance, even by Phoenix standards.

Designed by Troy Strumpfer of Modern Building and Design, this custom tiny home in Roosevelt Row puts you in the heart of Phoenix’s walkable art scene. Check out the area’s street art, nearby galleries and First Fridays, a boisterous art walk showcasing some of the Valley’s most creative work.

If you’re worried about a tiny home cramping your style, don’t be: sliding doors and a retractable front window make this home incredibly airy, and the private backyard further extends your living area. Southwest decor and thoughtfully designed features like a reading loft make this a comfortable spot to unwind for a weekend.

Why you should stay here: A throwback B&B experience in a lush Phoenix setting.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Pets allowed: No

Most Airbnb rentals are far cries from actual bed and breakfasts, but this spectacular rental between Phoenix and Scottsdale sticks to B&B roots. It’s one of several suites in a gorgeously redesigned mid-century home with a magazine-worthy backyard and shared daily breakfasts.

The suite itself is defined by large windows and the type of natural lighting that damn near guarantees you’ll start your day off right. The decor is a perfect balance of classy touches and funky character, and throughout the suite you’ll catch glimpses of the raging greenery outside.

This is a stunner of an Airbnb and one of the unicorns in the Valley with hundreds of reviews and a nearly perfect star-rating.

This 3-bedroom home offers comfortable touches inside and out, and the backyard makes it a solid family-friendly option in any season. If you’re there in mid-February, be sure to check out Willo’s popular home tour.

Why you should stay here: A cozy trailer parked in one of Phoenix’s best-known historic neighborhoods.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

This 1967 beauty is the brainchild of local designer Joel Contreras, who’s no stranger to redesigning unique spaces in Coronado Historic District. Inside, a less-is-more approach puts emphasis on the trailer’s usable space without feeling sparse.

Between the full bathroom, kitchenette, dining area and bedroom area, this rental feels more condo than trailer, and a lounge-worthy deck and outdoor area completes the modern desert vibe.

  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

This “desert contemporary” guest house just west of Piestewa Peak offers the quintessential Phoenix experience: nearby desert trails, backyard lounging and a cool interior offering a perfect respite from the heat.

Where most Airbnb reviews are bland variations of great place would stay again, host Paul’s reviews are stellar. “First time using Airbnb and the bar has been set extremely high,” said Michael from New Jersey.

“The best Airbnb experience I’ve had,” said David in LA. “Will be only staying here for any future visits to the area.”

Why you should stay here: A refined stay in the suburbs of north Phoenix.

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: Yes

Renovated downtown bungalows are great, but some trips call for a stay in the ‘burbs. That doesn’t mean you have to settle for a cookie-cutter rental, though, and this open-layout home proves it.

This north Phoenix rental offers tasteful decor, cozy spaces and room to entertain (see: heated pool and outdoor kitchen). Its location off the 101 between the 10 and 51 makes it an ideal jumping off point for trips around the Valley.

  • Pets allowed: No

Sometimes, it’s not about the square footage – it’s what you do with it. And this charming guest house does a whole lot, from the practically designed murphy bed to the immaculate full bathroom with brass rainshower.

The small, personal details makes this a one-of-a-kind rental, and many reviewers commented on the generous hospitality of the hosts. Its close to some of downtown’s main drags and at its price point, offers one of the best values in the area.

If you’re exploring the East Valley more than downtown, consider this tastefully decorated guest house in Tempe, just half a mile from Papago Park. Old Town Scottsdale, Tempe Town Lake and all types of shopping are just a few miles away, making this an ideal rental for nightlife, entertainment and anything in between.

After long days in the sun, check out nearby dinner and drink recommendations from Airbnb Superhost and foodie Nicole, who reviewers call “super responsive” and extremely hospitable.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

And now for something completely different: a geodesic home camouflaged into the desert hills of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. It may feel remote, but it’s minutes from downtown Phoenix and a quick drive to the Valley’s best hiking and biking spots like Piestewa Peak, Dreamy Draw and North Mountain.

Where some unique Airbnb rentals border on kitschy, this home keeps it classy with simply designed spaces and a beautiful exposed stone-and-beam construction. It’s also elevated enough for sweeping views of the city – especially from the upstairs deck.

This guest house rental brings all the lounge vibes with its rooftop deck and bold decor. Inside the home is just as relaxing, with calming, bright colors and a simple design scheme that makes the most of its space.

Lux Central is down the street and like our other midtown favorites, it’s a quick shot downtown. The WiFi’s strong and host John is extremely accommodating – there’s a reason it has hundreds of positive Airbnb reviews.

Phoenix is littered with beautiful mid-century modern homes and neighborhoods — here’s a helpful map — and if you’re looking to rent one out for the weekend, consider this cheery Airbnb in Arcadia.

It’s an ideal location for bouncing around Phoenix and Scottsdale, and not far from some of our favorite Scottsdale hiking trails. And if you’re laying low for the weekend, there’s a covered patio, spacious outdoor area and bright, airy living room where relaxing comes easy.

Why you should stay here: Colorful quarters and calm outdoor vibes in Uptown Phoenix.

  • Sleeps: 2

A stay at this mid-century modern condo keeps you north of the fray downtown but still offers easy to access to haunts around the valley.

As condos go, this one has premier outdoor space, with a grassy backyard and open front porch with plenty of greenery. The interior’s “designed to be calming, comfortable, and practical,” says Airbnb host Artur, and a full-sized kitchen makes this an ideal long-term Airbnb rental.

Why you should stay here: Coronado bungalow with pristine interior touches.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Pets allowed: No

I have a soft spot for white-and-wood decor (blame it on my wife, Fixer Upper or both), so this 2-bedroom home in Coronado Historic District hits the spot. Hosts Lisa and Wayne designed a lively, livable space that’s big enough for small families to chill and explore the city.

It’s a popular Phoenix Airbnb for out-of-town travelers, but it’s also a local favorite for staycations. “This will be our spot from now on,” said Logan of Phoenix. “This is the most perfect place.”
