Not every vacation to Scottsdale has to be about shopping, museums, and fancy restaurants. As the seasons change and summer comes ever nearer, Spring Training in Scottsdale brings a different demographic to our I Love Scottsdale doors. These are the people who have forever loved America’s pastime, the ones that may or may not have been able to see their favorite teams in person, and Spring Training allows them to do just that. Offering a more intimate experience, some of the league’s most popular teams, including the Chicago Cubs, migrate southwest for the spring, providing the ultimate in sports activities for visitors and locals. And because our Scottsdale Spring Training rentals are close to where the boys of summer play, you can spend most of your day at the ballpark and less time commuting back and forth!

All the Important Stuff
By now you probably already realize that our accommodations in Scottsdale are designed to make your vacation even better. You know that our sofas are soft, and our kitchens are modern, but you may be more concerned with how they are going to make your Spring Training viewing easier! For instance, were you aware that many of our Spring Training rentals offer smart televisions? And because MLB offers all the Spring Training games, you can watch the ones you didn’t see at the fields from the comfort of our plush sofas. The TVs in our homes are large and clear, making it feel as if you are on the bleachers at the ball field, except our homes are air conditioned and guaranteed to be cooler than outside! Ceiling fans in nearly all the rooms keep the air moving, something you will really appreciate after a few hours at the park.
Step into fully equipped kitchens to make a snack, grab a beer to enjoy in front of the television, and tune into fun for a few more hours; the rest of your family will be fine swimming in the pool or hanging out at Scottsdale Fashion Park, giving the credit cards a little extra work out! Speaking of the pool, this will be the second most popular spot in town, especially at the end of a day spent watching the San Francisco Giants playing at Scottsdale Stadium. We promise that as much fun as you have at the games, you will come home feeling tired, slightly sticky from a combination of sunscreen and spilled sodas, and perhaps a tad overheated, and as you slip into your suit and submerge yourself in the crystal-clear waters of your backyard pool, all the bad will just disappear. Leaving behind memories of blue skies, green grass, and the crack of a bat hitting the ball over the fence, these moments will be the ones you never want to forget!
At night, when the sky turns an inky black and soft beds beckon, your sleep will be deep and your dreams will be happy ones filled with baseballs, cold beers, and the cheer of the fans as their teams send the ball out of the park once again!
Amenities Make Them Special
Whether you have chosen an I Love Scottsdale condo, villa, or home to make your own during your Spring Training getaway to Arizona, the amenities we provide in all our properties make them special! Inside, high-speed wireless internet makes it easy to keep in touch with your office or lessen your data use on your phone as you make baseball related videos for your TikTok page. Smart televisions in many homes allow guests to stay updated on their favorite streaming shows and cable or satellite televisions provide crystal-clear pictures that let you see the expression on your favorite player’s faces as they knock another ball out of the park. Kitchens will be fully equipped with everything (minus the food and beverages) you need to make a meal, enjoy a snack, or savor a sip of your favorite beverage, including coffee makers, blenders, and the very important wine corkscrew!
Everyone knows the horrors of arriving at the airport after a wonderful vacation only to discover that your bags are over the weight limit, being forced to sit on the floor and redistribute from suitcase to suitcase to carryon, but the laundry rooms and closets of our I Love Scottsdale Spring Training properties nearly eliminate that problem! Pack light, knowing you can wash your dirty clothes and save the space for Spring Training programs signed by all the players on your favorite team, plastic baseball helmets that were once filled with ice cream, and, of course, jerseys and hoodies of your team!
Outside, there may not be enough room to play an entire game of baseball with your family, but in most of our Spring Training homes, the yards will be large enough to play catch with your children, harnessing their excitement for the game into a potential future, a future in which you will be sitting behind the dugouts watching your child shine on the field! Cornhole games, swimming pools, hot tubs, fire pits, even putting greens are more of the wonderful amenities you may find in the backyard of your vacation home away from home. Outdoor kitchens may be used for impromptu barbecues or firepits may be where you roast hotdogs and marshmallows and create memories your children will never forget. Desert temperatures in March can get a little toasty, but once the sun sets behind the mountains, the night chills out and the warmth of the fire will be much appreciated!
The Cactus League
Spring Training is divided between two leagues: the Grapefruit League in Florida and the Cactus League here in Arizona. We have 15 Major League teams playing in 10 stadiums spread out over Scottsdale, Tempe, Goodyear, Phoenix, and Buckeye, which means you have many opportunities to see the games! Watch the San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium, the Colorado Rockies and our hometown faves, the Arizona Diamondbacks, at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, and the Oakland A’s at Hohokam Stadium. Sloan Park, home to the Chicago Cubs, was designed to be a miniature version of Wrigley Field, and every game you view there will be an experience not to be forgotten! Tempe Diablo Stadium hosts the Los Angeles Angels, Camelback Ranch is home to the Chicago White Sox and the LA Dodgers, and Goodyear Ballpark may offer a bit of a drive from your I Love Scottsdale sanctuary, but it is where the Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Guardians live during Spring Training season. The Milwaukee Brewers play from American Family Fields of Phoenix, the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners get their practice in the Peoria Sports Complex, and last but not least, the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers call Surprise Stadium their home away from home.
The Crack of the Bat, the Sound of the Crowds, and All the Comforts of Home
Even the biggest baseball fans will appreciate the creature comforts offered by our accommodations in Scottsdale! Live your baseball dreams out loud at any of the stadiums listed above and come home every night to luxury, comfort, and more chances to catch another Spring Training game.
