For those of you who love summer, we at I Love Scottsdale are about to let you in on a secret that will help you extend the season a little longer. Fall in Scottsdale, in the Metropolitan Phoenix area to be exact, is actually more like a kinder, cooler summer in the desert. The trees aren’t changing yet, the daytime temperatures can still reach the lower triple digits, (especially if you arrive early in the season) and the nights are just beginning to provide a touch of cool. What does this mean for travelers who make their way to our doorstep in the beginning of fall? It means you can lounge by the pools of our seasonal sanctuaries, working on a tan that will last you through the early days of winter. It means you take your kids trick-or-treating at Halloween and not have to cover their costumes with winter coats and their hands with mittens, and when you choose our beautiful homes and condos to make your home sweet vacation home, it means you can relax in comfort and style! This guide to our fall vacation rentals in Scottsdale will help you find the one that fits your traveling party like an expensive glove, giving you a fall getaway that will be remembered for years to come!

Warm and Welcoming
The first thing you may notice when arriving in Scottsdale is that no one is wearing sweaters, jackets, or corduroys. Instead, we continue our summer wardrobe of shorts, tees, and flip flops, smiling happily because we have survived the scorching heat of high summer. But everywhere you look, you will see the first signs of fall, perhaps in the colors of our clothing as we switch from bright pastels to shades of pumpkin, olive, and eggplant, and if you arrive in late fall, you may notice the smell of fireplace smoke in the evenings. Your I Love Scottsdale seasonal sanctuary, however, may not look much different décor wise, but again, there will be signs. Our living rooms, filled with plush furnishings and state-of-the-art televisions may have colorful throws tossed against the back of the sofa, and if there is a fireplace, you may find instructions on how to start a fire. (Most will be gas, meaning all you will have to do is flip a switch!) Maybe a fall bouquet of flowers will be placed in a colorful vase on the dining room table, but if not, no worries, because you won’t need to remove the vase when it is time to eat dinner or when you are ready to play one of the board games that may be populating the shelves or cabinets of the space.
But at night, when you are playing games under the light of the chandelier, you may find yourselves opening the windows to let the cool night in, smelling the first crisp scents of the season. Your kitchen adventures may head in the direction of baking cookies, creating meals with Halloween themes, or brewing up a witch’s “potion” from a recipe you found online. These cheerful spaces are also luxurious ones, offering high end appliances, custom cabinets, and in most cases stone countertops that will make rolling out those batches of cookies a breeze. The breakfast bars, often fronted by comfortable bar stools, are a great place to enjoy morning meals of donuts and if you are looking for some that are really special, we are proud to inform our guests that Voodoo Doughnut just opened its first Arizona location at 1324 S Rural Road in Tempe. Located not far from your fall family home, they will be a perfect addition to your family meal schedule!
Let’s Talk About Luxury
Luxury isn’t always about swimming pools, game rooms, and expensive furnishings. Sometimes the biggest luxuries arise from the smallest additions: sipping a glass of wine as you watch the sun set over the McDowell Mountains, relaxing in front of a fire on a chilly autumn night while reading a book from your favorite author, or lounging by the pool on a warm fall day, knowing the forecast showed a potential for snow in your hometown! These small luxuries are the ones you will appreciate forever, especially knowing that I Love Scottsdale provides the larger, more impactful ones, as well. Choose a luxury home and step out the backdoors that lead to the backyards and discover all manners of wonders designed to help make your enjoyment of our homes move to the next levels. Crystal-clear pools that may be heated to extend the swimming season, hot tubs under the stars that will add romance to your visit, and firepits or fireplaces for more warmth, fun, and romance. Some may offer outdoor kitchens, others offer gas barbecues and places to enjoy the results of your efforts in front of the grill. Outdoor games will be appreciated as much as the ones you may find in fully equipped game rooms and views that will stun will make you wish you never had to leave. Our condos, still luxurious and comfortable, offer a host of amenities that ensure you will not have sacrificed when you chose to explore a vacation escape on a smaller scale. Add in locations near the hottest spots in Scottsdale and well, just about everything you can think about that makes travel fun and our getaways will be the spice your fall escape to the desert needs!
Nights in Scottsdale
When the sun sets, there will be many activities you can participate in during your fall trip to Scottsdale. From hot air balloon festivals to arts festivals to epicurean adventures in the finest restaurants, you will never have a moment of boredom, but as you rush from one spot to the other in the back of your mind you will be remembering the best night’s sleep you enjoyed just last night and the one before that! Our bedrooms are havens of peace and comfort, furnished with beds that will make you feel as if you are sleeping on the clouds. State-of-the-art televisions in most bedrooms provide the modern touches that make falling to sleep easier and silky linens, soft pillows, and quiet decors will provide the perfect counterpoint to your daytime adventures. Steam showers and soaking tubs in en suite baths add a little extra luxury and cheerfully decorated “children’s rooms” will be the spaces where hushed whispers and uncontrollable giggles can be heard in the moments before sleep claims your sweet children. Waking every morning feeling rested, refreshed, and ready for a new day of Scottsdale adventures is just another luxury that comes standard with the rental of our I Love Scottsdale seasonal sanctuaries!
