6 Benefits of Staying in a Luxury Home on Your Multi-family Vacation

November 3, 2020 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations | Travelers

Have you ever gone on a multi-family vacation? Are there family members or friends that you love having along on your trips? More and more, vacationers are choosing to go on combined family vacations, both for the financial benefit and for the fun. Here are some great reasons for staying in a luxury home rather than a hotel or resort.


1) Cost Savings

One of the most appreciated benefits of booking a multi-family vacation is being able to split the cost of the reservation with another family. When compared to the price of a resort or hotel for multiple families in different rooms, renting a luxury vacation home often makes the most sense financially.


2) More Space

The spacious homes at provide the ideal getaway for more than one family. Each luxury home has plenty of space for more than one family to comfortably spread out and relax. With multiple bedrooms, each guest has a private place to rest, while still enjoying a common area to gather in. Multi-family guests also enjoy being able to prepare meals in a large, fully stocked kitchen, which they would not be able to do in a resort or hotel.  The cost of two or three families dining out for breakfast, lunch and dinner is extensive, so having a large, gourmet kitchen and duel sub-zero refrigerator is a great benefit.


3) Valuable Family Time understands the importance of spending time together as a family. Making memories with your family and close friends is so important in today’s busy world. Spending quality time with your loved ones in one of our luxury rental homes makes for an unforgettable experience. Each of our homes have a pool, outdoor bars, barbecues, beautiful views, outdoor seating areas and backyard games for the children to enjoy. Another perk of luxury getaways is having separate areas for kids and adults. Kids and teens love to watch movies in the theater room and hang out in the game room while adults sit by the outdoor fire pit and enjoy the views with a glass of wine.


4) Increased Privacy

One of the most sought-after perks of staying in a luxury vacation home is privacy, especially during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Our homes offer the utmost privacy for your family and friends while on vacation in Scottsdale. We also pride ourselves on offering complete discretion throughout the booking process and during your stay. Guests are placing far more value on not staying in a hotel or resort with hundreds of other families. Our luxury Scottsdale vacation rentals provide you with all the space and activities of a hotel or resort without the added inconvenience of sharing the space with hundreds of strangers.


5) Coordination Ease

When planning a multi-family vacation, it’s often hard to ensure that everyone is on the same page. When staying in a resort, families and friends are often separated from one another, which makes going out and about and coordinating mealtimes a hassle. When staying in a luxury home, everyone is together in one spacious home, which makes gathering much easier. The reservation process is also much simpler. Rather than having to make multiple room reservations, you can choose the perfect home for your needs and then go through one easy booking process.


6) Amenities and Services

When it comes to keeping the family happy, people often enjoy the room service, concierge services and amenities that come with staying in a resort or hotel. With’s luxury vacation rentals, our guests still get to enjoy all those services, but with the benefits of staying in a spacious home. Enjoy access to the area’s best concierge service providers, including amazing massage therapists, accredited childcare, top luxury tours, grocery services and renowned personal chefs. You’ll also be provided with top-of-the-line amenities, including clean quality linens, a well-stocked kitchen, toiletries, luxury extras and so much more. In short, you’ll get all of the amazing resort-style amenities with the privacy and space of a luxury home.


5 Things to Do in Scottsdale This Weekend

October 8, 2020 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations | Travelers

Enjoy a wide selection of world class golf courses in the Scottsdale area.


Unfortunately, Covid-19 has put a damper on many Scottsdale-area activities. Pastimes like watching live sports, seeing a movie in a theater, and attending Phoenix Symphony concerts are still a no-go. Though many live events and recreational activities are temporarily closed, we’ve compiled five fun, stress-free and safe things to do in Scottsdale.


Hike Camelback Mountain 


Camelback Mountain is one of the highest peaks in Phoenix and certainly one of the most beautiful hiking spots in the city. The dramatic mountain offers spectacular views of Phoenix and has some lovely neighborhoods with beautiful surrounding homes. The 2,700 foot peak can be reached from Echo Canyon Trail, which is 1.2 miles long and is steep, but incredibly scenic. Cholla Trail on the eastside of Camelback Mountain offers a more gradual incline, but still boasts great views. If you’re searching for a more beginner-friendly trail, you’ll enjoy Bobby’s Rock Loop at Camelback’s base. During the summer months, due to the desert heat, it’s advised to enjoy the trails in the early morning or late evening. However, one of the benefits of Scottsdale in the spring time, fall, and winter is that the pleasant weather that allows for a hike any time of the day. Because of the stunning views and opportunity for fresh air and exercise, hiking up Camelback Mountain can really be a treat.


Beautiful Camelback Mountain provides amazing Phoenix valley views from the top.

Go Golfing


Scottsdale has always been recognized for its world class golf resorts. In fact, with difficulty levels ranging from beginner to expert, the Valley of the Sun is home to several hundred top-rated courses.

For an authentic Phoenician golf experience, head to the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club. The club is part of the Arizona Biltmore Resort in downtown Phoenix. Movie stars, politicians and business-men/women have enjoyed this course for many years. It was constructed in 1928 and known as “the granddaddy” of Phoenix country clubs. The Arizona Biltmore boasts two 18-hole PGA Championship courses, a driving range, pro shop, putting green and full-service restaurant. Because of the popularity of this course, reserve your tee times a few days in advance online at the golf course’s website.

Another great course to visit is the Phoenician Golf Club at the base of Camelback Mountain. The Papago Golf Course is always a treat for the avid golfer. Nestled among the red buttes of Papago Park, this renowned course has a variety of unique holes which climb the mountain and back down again.


Phoenix Zoo features an amazing variety of animals and habitats that the entire family will enjoy.

Visit Phoenix Zoo


The Phoenix Zoo, which is open to the public currently, features hundreds of animals in their exhibits. The Tropics, African, Arizona, and Children’s trails provide a great way to observe the animals in various habitats. Don’t forget the encounters at Monkey Village, which is popular with family members of all ages. Other popular areas include The Giraffe Encounter, Stingray Bay, Camel Rides and the Red Barn Petting Zoo. Guests can also enjoy watching a movie at their 4-D Theater, riding through the park on the Safari Cruiser or picking their favorite animal on the Endangered Species Carousel.


Tour Cultural Attractions


Arizona has many venues with culture and art like Frank Lloyd Wright’s striking Taliesin West. The Taliesin West offers various guided tours that feature the architecture and history of the property. Their Insights Tour will lead you through Wright’s private quarters and living room, which is worth viewing if you have the spare time. The city offers a behind-the-scenes tour of Taliesin West’s “Garden Room,” the Music Pavilion, and the Drafting Studio. Architecture enthusiasts will enjoy the 3-hour tour, which is not recommended for children under the age of 13. However, if you are interested in Wright’s stunning designs, it is certainly an enjoyable tour.


Another favorite cultural attraction amongst visitors is the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, which features over 7,000 instruments from almost 200 countries. A popular current exhibit is the Congo Masks and Music: Masterpieces from Central Africa, which displays over 150 masks, instruments and costumes in their authentic performance contexts.


Lastly, a visit to Desert Botanical Garden is always time well spent. Visitors enjoy strolling through 140 acres of plant and flower displays with garden trails and a wide variety of tours and exhibits. A visitor favorite is the current Wild Rising by Cracking Art, which is an installation of more than 1,000 animal sculptures made from colorful, recycled plastic. Wrap the day up with a bite to eat at Gertrude’s or find a gift for someone special in your life at the garden shop, which always has treats and unique items from the Botanical Museum.


Despite the pandemic, Scottsdale is a great place to visit and offers unique opportunities for recreation and adventure. If you’re looking to get out of the house and enjoy Scottsdale’s mild fall weather, the above activities will provide you with plenty to do and see!

Make Your Holidays Luxurious and Memorable

November 30, 2018 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations

‘Tis the season for families to gather and celebrate the wonder of the holidays. There’s no better way to enjoy this magical time of year than to be together under one roof. With Holiday Rental, you and yours can be jolly while staying in your own private resort with plenty of room for everyone.


If your winter break plans include the trip of a lifetime with extended family, Scottsdale is a great place to visit during the holiday season. What’s more, our villa experts can help you find that perfect home to bring everyone together, from grandparents and great grands, to the smallest members of your clan.


Here’s why renting a luxury vacation home makes sense when it comes to multigeneration getaways.


Room for Everyone

Why cram guests into every nook and cranny when you can sprawl out in a spacious home with several bedrooms and en-suite baths. Even the closest of relatives need some quiet space and our estates offer plenty of room for each person to find their own place to retreat.


When it’s time to bring your brood together for meals or celebrations, you’ll find the common areas in these homes are large enough to comfortably seat up to 20 guests. No more having to worry about someone sitting on the floor for gift giving or standing up during meals.


Big Kitchens Inside and Out

You’ll certainly want to take time to try out our local restaurants and experience terrific Southwest cooking as well as other delicious cuisines. However, we know that eating out for every meal can be both tiring and expensive, which is why you’ll appreciate our homes’ large, full kitchens featuring gourmet appliances and other niceties such as wine coolers, Jenn-air grills, and ample kitchen space for multiple chefs to assist with everything from holiday baking to multi-course dinners. Even better, since many of our homes have open floor plans, you and your helpers won’t have to miss any of the action.


Do you have grill masters among your crew? Put them to work in the outside kitchen that comes with luxury vacation rentals in our collection. These aren’t your ordinary BBQs. You’ll find not only an expansive cooking space, but prep areas, sinks, and even fridges at your disposal.


Have Fun Without Leaving the Property

Without a doubt, the biggest appeal to renting a private estate is how much fun you can have on-site. Our vacation rentals feature heated pools and spas which allow everyone to take advantage of the mild winter temps here in Scottsdale.


For sports fanatics, you can search for homes featuring basketball or tennis courts, putting greens, and even soccer fields. People who embrace active lifestyles will feel right at home.


If your party is more into movies or watching the big games on TV, an estate with a media room would be an excellent choice. There are also options for billiards rooms and properties that have full bars which lend themselves nicely to an exclusive New Year’s Eve experience.


Of course, one of the features our homes are most famous for are sweeping views. Picture your family gathered around outdoor fire amenities, singing Christmas carols with a mountain backdrop on one side, glistening holiday lights shining from the cityscape below, and a beautiful desert sky filled with stars above.


But Don’t Forget to Check Out Scottsdale

The Scottsdale/Phoenix region takes the holiday season seriously, with many activities and events geared toward the entire family. Skate in Phoenix’s City Center check out the light displays in Glendale or at the Phoenix Zoo, or even experience the natural beauty at one of the desert botanical gardens which are adorned with luminarias.


There’s plenty of fun to be had in Old Town Scottsdale where you’ll find unique shops, art exhibits, and extraordinary dining experiences. If your family includes those who love adventure, be sure to check out OdySea in the Desert which offers five world-class attractions including an aquarium, a dolphinarium, a dinosaur exhibit, a butterfly exhibit, and more.


Don’t forget day trips to the Sonora Desert, Red Rocks, and other locations that you won’t find anywhere but in Arizona.


Why Book With Holiday Rental

When you arrange to stay with Holiday Rental, you aren’t just renting a vacation home. We do all that we can to make your family’s getaway perfect.


Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a villa ambassador who will provide you with a tour of your home and show you all the amenities and how they work. We want you and your guests to enjoy your vacation rental to the fullest.

The PGA Tour’s top players will be here for the year’s first major golf event, with the first round starting on February 1.

There are plenty of activities to excite and delight both golfers and non-golfers alike, creating an experience that’s second to none. Every year, there’s a bright mix of fresh events and favorite traditions that keep visitors coming back for more.


Here’s what’s planned for this wonderful week:


R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day Activities and San Tan Ford Special Olympics Open

At 11 a.m., the San Tan Ford Special Olympics Open takes place at the TPC Scottsdale Putting Green, featuring Special Olympian athletes, celebrities, sports stars, and community leaders.


16th Hole

Considered to be the most exciting hole on the TPC Scottsdale greens, the Phoenix Suns Charities “Shot at Glory” takes place at 3:30 p.m. on January 31, following the Annexus Pro-Am. Several celebrities and others, including members of the Phoenix Suns basketball team and a randomly selected ticket holder, will vie for the chance to land a hole-in-one in “the Coliseum.” Cash prizes and matching charitable donations up to $1 million are on the line.


Throughout the rest of the tourney, this is the spot to catch some of the most nail-biting action. Skybox seats are available for those who enjoy a bird’s-eye view.


Coors Light Birds Nest

Once the rounds are made on the course, it’s time to start a different kind of round at the Coors Light Birds Nest. This is the entertainment hotspot for the Open, located directly across from TPC Scottsdale. Check the calendar schedule as each day there’s a different can’t-miss performance lined up. The concert series will be announced soon, with big names in music like Kid Rock, Flo Rida, and One Direction taking to the stage around 8:30 p.m. each evening. Gates open at 3:30 p.m. with options including general admission, VIP admission (including a hosted bar and catered buffet) and VIP Pit Pass (food, bar, and an exclusive reserved area in front of the stage).


Where to Stay for the Phoenix Waste Management Open

When you’re in Scottsdale, there’s no better place to stay during a big event like your own luxury vacation rental from Holiday Rental’s prestigious collection of homes. You and your guests will enjoy a peaceful ambiance away from the throngs who will be staying at local hotels and resorts. Instead, you’ll be able to relax in seclusion in an estate equipped with every amenity you might desire. Wake up in the morning and enjoy a quiet breakfast or coffee on the patio. When you’re done watching the pros, come back and practice your own swing on a private putting green, or take a dip in a heated pool and spa.


These luxury homes have room for groups of anywhere from 10 to 20 people, with multiple bedrooms and en-suite baths. There’s room for everyone to gather in the common areas, prepare meals in luxury kitchens, or simply unwind watching highlights of the day’s action on big screen TVs (did we mention, many of these homes have media rooms, as well as billiards rooms and full bars?).


When you’re ready to go to bed, you’ll be enveloped in soft hotel-quality sheets, provided as part of your stay along with towels and toiletries. During the day, our daily housekeeping service will come in to tidy up, take out the garbage, and refresh linens so you can return to a clean home.

Featuring Sub-Wolf and Viking appliances, as well as a wine cooler, this open design also includes granite countertops, a center island, custom cabinetry, and a glass-tiled backsplash. A breakfast bar adds additional seating and a place for guests to visit.


Plenty of Room in the Main House

The master bedroom is as breezy and welcoming as the rest of the house, featuring a spa-like bathroom with dual sinks and a walk-in shower. Take a night soak in the tub and gaze out at the stars in the big desert sky from the windows that surround. Adjacent to the bedroom is a 950-foot den, featuring a private sitting area and TV, for when downtime is needed. The other bedrooms are equally light and open, with baths featuring Jack-n-Jill sinks and generous-sized showers.


Room in the Guest House, Too

Not only are there plenty of places to sleep in the main house, but there’s also a 1,034-foot guest house that includes its own living room, full kitchen, bedrooms, bath, and laundry. It’s a perfect setup for guests or nannies who need additional privacy. Few luxury homes offer this additional living space. Between both houses, this property has six bedrooms, five and a half baths (many en-suite) and sleeps up to 18 people!


Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Fresh air living with unrestricted mountain vistas is just what anyone needs to get into the vacation vibe. Picture yourself floating in the refreshing pool, whether you’re basking in the sun or taking a night dip (it’s lighted!). There’s a seat for everyone in the semi-covered porch just outside of the main house or over in the outdoor dining section. Come nightfall, gather your group to watch fireworks displays from the city, as you sip your favorite beverage and snuggle together.


Close to Fun

When you stay at the Scottsdale Sanctuary, you’ll enjoy the property’s exclusiveness. At the same time, you’ll be close to some amazing activities and notable sites. Old Town Scottsdale is known for everything from its historic Southwest feel, to outstanding cultural opportunities, like art galleries and museums, to boutiques, fine dining, and extraordinary nightlife. Nearby Phoenix is home to sporting teams and other attractions suitable for guests of all ages.

Come for the Cactus Bowl, Stay for the Luxury

October 24, 2018 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations

There’s Christmas, but to Arizonians, it’s the next day they’re geared up to celebrate. The Cactus Bowl 2019 is set for Wednesday, December 26, at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. This year is even more special as it marks this college football extravaganza’s 30th anniversary, which means the celebration is destined to be epic.


When you’re in town for the game, why fight the throngs in Phoenix for hotel space when you and your team can stay at a Scottsdale luxury vacation rental just a 30-minute drive from the stadium?



Gearing Up for the Cactus Bowl

The teams competing for this prestigious win have yet to be determined, but you can expect to see the best Big-12 and Pac-12 teams on the field that day. Also known as the Cheez-It Bowl, the action is expected to be fierce as these top collegiate football teams play against each other. Last year, Kansas State played UCLA, with Kansas State emerging as the victor. No one knows yet who is in line for this year, but we can guarantee it will be a rousing experience for everyone who attends. The gates open at 5 pm, with kick-off at 7 pm, so plan your schedules accordingly.


Getting to Know Chase Field

Arizonians know Chase Field as the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix’s Major League Baseball team. It’s the first field built with a retractable roof, which means fans can enjoy our glorious climate when the temps are comfortable, and the sun is bright, or they can take in a game in comfort when the weather isn’t quite as cooperative. There are plenty of amenities to make your game-time at Chase Field great. From comfortable seating to exceptional food and merchandise vendors, you’ll be sure to soak up the fun when you’re in town for this game.


Why Opt for a Luxury Vacation Rental

Let’s be honest: No one goes to a college bowl game alone. Chances are, you’re bringing your crew with you to cheer on your favorite teams. Why not make the most of your experience by bypassing the hotels and booking a stay at one of Holiday Rental’s opulent properties? If you’ve never considered a vacation home rental before, now’s the time to give it some consideration.


First, privacy is at a premium during bowl season. When you book a getaway with though, you and your crew will have a secluded place to retreat from the crowds before and after that game. Our vacation rentals are located just minutes from the excitement but are still in locations that allow you and your party to enjoy some solitude.


With our Scottsdale luxury vacation rentals, you’ll reside in one of the finest spaces to unwind before and after the game. Our properties generally include expansive living spaces, state-of-the-art kitchens, gorgeous bed and bath suites, as well as thrilling outdoor amenities such as huge BBQs and refreshing pools and spas, as well as putting greens, sporting courts, fire features, media rooms, and more.


The views from these homes are not to be missed, either. You can wake up and enjoy your morning coffee gazing at Camelback Mountain or enjoy your evening cocktail with views of Paradise Valley below.


When you book with Holiday Rental, you get the best of all worlds: you experience the ultimate luxury of a private retreat with the amenities found at top-end resorts. From the moment you arrive, you and your party will be greeted by one of our villa ambassadors, who will take you on a tour of your getaway home. He or she will make sure you know how each amenity works, as well as how to reach us 24/7 if you have questions for our professional staff.


Unlike other vacation rentals, you don’t have to clean or bring your own linens. We take care of that for you. Our housekeeping service will be there for two hours a day for light cleaning, and to refresh the hotel-quality sheets, towels, and toiletries we supply, all staying out of your way.


To make your stay exceptional, a basic concierge is available to book such pleasures as a pool-side massage, a private chef to take care of the meals, or transportation.


When you think about it, this is the way to go if you are planning to stay here for Christmas and New Year’s Day. Each house has a common room in which to gather for a big party, plus a gourmet kitchen to prep for the ultimate family holiday dinner.


Our homes are close to the action as well. Even in heavy traffic, you can be at Chase Stadium in under an hour. Plus, you’ll be just minutes from other hot spots such as Old Town Scottsdale, art museums, OdySea Aquarium, Talking Stick Casino, and more. In fact, as you’ll note, there’s plenty to discover in Scottsdale and Phoenix, which makes staying on a private property even more appealing.
