There are countless reasons to choose to stay in a Scottsdale Airbnb over a high end resort.

First, you get to pick the area of where you want to stay based on what you are traveling to Scottsdale for.  For example if you want to experience the nightlife, chef-driven restaurants and spring training games within walking distance then I would recommend staying in downtown Scottsdale or more commonly known as Old Town.  If you are looking for more of a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation then stay a bit outside of Old Town closer to some posh spas.

Second, you are on your own schedule.  Come and go as you like and have privacy.  Cook meals in to save a bit of money and it is the best way to social distance in this new normal that we are all still trying to adjust to.

If you are looking for a unique stay on a farm in the desert or for a bit of luxury, this list of the best Airbnbs in Scottsdale will help navigate your decision making process.
