Scottsdale is known for a variety of things that make it stand out in a world where many towns are all beginning to blend together in a faceless and characterless way. We are home to an integral part of the Cactus League Spring Training games, we are known as the West’s Most Western Town, and when it comes to luxury and style, Scottsdale Fashion Park helps us rise to the top. But perhaps the one thing that sets Scottsdale (and our neighboring cities) apart from your Midwestern hometown is the desert. Offering a unique landscape filled with life, at first glance its arid environment may seem empty, but as you examine it more intensely, you’ll see how full of life it really is. This guide to our Vacation rentals in Scottsdale with a desert view will make you fall in love with the beauty of our arid landscape and perhaps have you considering a move to the desert!

Vacation Rentals in Scottsdale with a Desert View
Normally we start by talking about the charms and luxuries our Scottsdale homes will provide, and although we WILL get to that later, first we want to discuss those views. If you are like most travelers, the only experience with the desert you have ever had is from the old Westerns your parents still watch religiously. Fraught with danger, rattlesnakes, scorpions, and outlaws are waiting behind every rock outcropping to make unsuspecting travelers their victim in those old movies. But in real life, the desert can be a friendly and welcoming environment, offering some of the most stunning views in the world, and although our homes aren’t the only ones providing those views, they are the most comfortable and luxurious ones in town! Maybe your view focuses on the state cactus, the saguaro, that takes 10 years to grow an inch, and by the time it reaches the ripe old age of 70, can grow its first flowers. Wait, did we just say something about flowers in the desert? If you are visiting during the spring, especially a wet spring, you won’t believe the beauty of the flowers that grow there. From the ones on a variety of cacti to the fields of wildflowers waving merrily in the desert breezes, spring is definitely a season in which the desert comes to life. The roadrunners slow down, the hummingbirds’ wings flap a little less, and the trails are filled with hikers from all over the world enjoying the beauty of our Arizona landscape. And because you chose an I Love Scottsdale home with a desert view, you can enjoy it without all that unnecessary exercise involved with hiking!
Reflections of the Desert
If all we offered, however, was incredible views, we could understand our guests being somewhat underwhelmed, but of course we offer so much more. Reflecting the beauty of the desert that surrounds the homes, the spaces are bright, colorful, and designed to make guests feel instantly at home. You may spend more time staring out the windows at the views that you will love than watching the state of the art televisions that are standard amenities in all of our homes, but isn’t it nice to know that you can spend a few hours losing yourself in the stories that are playing on the screen? The desert attracts the best artists in the world, and their pieces can often be found scattered throughout our homes; paintings of the desert at sunset hanging over the dining room tables, sculptures that reflect the culture of those who have lived here long before the home was built, even photographs of the mountains that stand guard over our desert home add color and whimsy to the spaces that welcome travelers who shelter here.
Outside, the manicured beauty of backyards designed to look like an oasis in the desert contrasts with the wild and rugged landscape. Crystal-clear pools keep guests cool in the summer, bubbling hot tubs will soothe aching muscles, and firepits offer the perfect spot to gather with friends and family and tell ghost stories under the vast expanse of Arizona sky. After the last story has been told and the flames have been doused, tranquil bedrooms invite guests to sleep the night away in beds so comfortable that all dreams are practically guaranteed to be happy ones.
