3 Reasons You NEED to Stay in a Luxury Vacation Home for the Super Bowl

August 12, 2022 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations | Travelers | Vacation Rental Owners

Vacation Home for the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest and most exciting sports events of the year. The big game attracts so many people, including celebrities, famous athletes, and successful individuals, as well as corporate groups. The 2023 Super Bowl will take place in Glendale, AZ on February 12, 2023, and, in addition to the big game, there are other exciting sports and entertainment events in the Valley of the Sun, including the Waste Management Open. The Waste Management Open is one of the biggest golf events in the world and has been dubbed, “The Greatest Show on Grass.” In addition to fantastic golf and a one-of-a-kind experience, there are concerts and other great shows to enjoy. The Waste Management Open takes place February 6-12, 2023. Needless to say, high-end travelers, including celebrities, athletes, corporations, and other discerning travelers can have a truly luxurious trip that is FILLED with fun and entertainment. But, at HolidayRental.com, we know these travelers don’t just want a fun trip – they need a luxurious place to stay during the trip. Although there are high-end hotels in Scottsdale and Phoenix, there is no vacation experience that can compare to a luxury vacation home for the Super Bowl.

3 Reasons You NEED to Stay in a Luxury Vacation Home for the Super Bowl

  1. Luxury Vacation Rentals Give You Freedom
    • Even if you rent the most luxurious suite or private villa at a hotel, you do not really have total freedom over the property and your vacation. Feel like a late-night dip in the pool after the big game? After partying and enjoying the Waste Management Open or Super Bowl, do you want to walk around all day in a bathrobe – regardless of whether you are inside or outside? At a hotel, you might have to worry about these things because perhaps the pool is closed or you don’t want to worry about other people while you walk around a hotel property. When you rent a private luxury home in Scottsdale, the home and property are yours to enjoy at your discretion. No curious eyes or amenity restrictions will stand in the way of your freedom to enjoy your vacation  – any way you want!
  2. Vacation Villas Have Plenty of Room 
    • Whether you are traveling with a big group of friends, you are a large corporate group, or like many celebrities – you travel with an entourage – there is plenty of room in a private vacation villa for your whole group and all of the stuff you travel with. You will feel right at home because you are staying in the kind of luxurious home you are used to and everyone will enjoy having their own space while easily being able to come together and enjoy each other’s company. 
  3. Experience True Privacy in a Scottsdale Vacation Home
    • Celebrities and the rich and famous often prefer luxury vacation home rentals because it offers a higher level of privacy than any other type of travel accommodations. You don’t have to interact with hotel staff or walk the hotel grounds to get around. The entire home and property are all yours to enjoy privately. Should you need anything, you have a private concierge to assist you, including making arrangements for things like a private chef, in-home massage, private yoga, etc. When you rent with HolidayRental.com, the experience you will have is unparalleled and will give you a private oasis so that you can maximize your enjoyment of the 2023 Super Bowl and Waste Management Open!
