Buckeye vacation rentals

Enjoy an Arizona adventure

Located around 30 miles from the heart of downtown Phoenix, Buckeye is both an ideal base from which to explore the sprawling Arizona capital, and a beguiling destination in its own right. The locals proudly celebrate their Old West heritage with vibrant events like the Buckeye Days festival, the centerpiece of which is a spectacular rodeo. But Buckeye also boasts all the mod cons you'd expect of a 21st century city, with chic fashion stores, cozy cafes, and elegant gourmet restaurants. There's an abundance of appealing Buckeye vacation rentals on offer, so you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting your home-away-from-home.

Desert hikes and decadent spa days

Buckeye is a golfer's dream, offering easy access to several lush championship courses, each of which is surrounded by majestic mountain scenery. Skyline Regional Park offers a similarly spectacular setting for hikers, mountain bikers, and horse riders. If you're looking to up the pace, you could alternatively explore the wilderness on an adrenalin-pumping ATV or Off-Road tour. Hardcore thrill-seekers could go one step further and indulge in a spot of desert skydiving – a bucket list experience if ever there was one. Or if all of that sounds too much like hard work, you could kick back in a day spa and treat yourself to a heavenly full body massage.

Aquatic adventures in Buckeye

An eclectic array of attractions are within easy reach of your Buckeye vacation rental. Stave off the searing desert heat with a trip to Buckeye Aquatic Center. This fun-packed family attraction boasts an expansive outdoor pool, a beach front area replete with water features, and a hair-raising flume. If you've youngsters in tow, the Little Buckeye Children's Museum is another must-visit. Here kids can explore at their own pace a host of thrillingly immersive exhibits designed to spark the imagination. For a vivid nostalgia trip, swing by the Buckeye Valley Museum, where you can learn all about local history through an enthralling collection of beautifully preserved artifacts and stunning photos.

Sizzling summers and mild winters in Buckeye

Buckeye's subtropical desert climate ensures long, sunny and often extremely hot summers. Widespread air conditioning makes it easy enough to cope, but you'd be wise to avoid the searing midday sun if you're visiting between May and September, and you may find your appetite for active outdoor pursuits waning at this time of year. Temperatures begin to fall in October, but intense heat remains a possibility. Winter sees an onset of pleasantly mild weather, but conditions tend to remain dry and sunny all year round. Unlike many desert locations, temperatures don't fluctuate drastically between day and night, although it can get a little chilly in winter once the sun's gone down.

Buckeye's dazzling desert landscape

You'll find a world of rugged natural spectacle virtually on the doorstep of your Buckeye vacation rental. Just 20 minutes by car from the center of town, sprawling Skyline Regional Park is home to all manner of distinctive flora and fauna. Local plants like the strawberry hedgehog cactus bring a touch of vivid color to the arid vistas, and on your travels you may catch a glimpse of a graceful mule deer or a stately Sonoran desert tortoise.
