7 Envy-Worthy Airbnbs In Arizona
In a short drive from the metropolitan city of Phoenix, you can travel from the desert, to the red rocks of Sedona or the pine forests of Flagstaff. You can even road-trip to the Grand Canyon (one of the seven natural wonders of the world), or ski down the slopes of Snowbowl.
In Arizona, there's adventure to be had! It is no wonder why the state has become a hot attraction for short term rental investors.
As the adage goes, every successful real estate investment begins with the right location. With the growing popularity of short-term rentals across the U.S., many cities are creating tighter rules and prohibiting Airbnb rentals altogether. However, Arizona has gone in another direction by signing a law in 2016 that prevents cities in the state from banning short term rentals, making cities in Arizona the perfect place for investors.
Check out these seven amazing Arizona Airbnb escapes below before booking a hotel on your next trip or staycation in State 48!
