Avondale vacation rentals

Make your base a stone’s throw from Phoenix

Located just to the west of Phoenix, Avondale may be a small and understated community, but that’s exactly what makes it such a great spot to make your own when visiting the area. There are many Avondale vacation rentals to choose from, including spacious, ranch-style homes with private pools. Book one of these, and you’ll soon be lying back in the garden, under the lazy leaves of palm trees, letting the rays of the Arizona sun prickle against your skin.

Taking things easy in Avondale

Avondale vacation rentals are just the thing if you’re looking for rest and relaxation rather than hustle and bustle. This part of Arizona has plenty of public parks to check out, including Dennis DeConcini Park and Dessie Lorenze Park, so you can happily while away hours of the afternoon just sitting or reclining with a good book. And if you want to combine the emerald outdoors with some competitive fun, you can always show off your swing at a local golf course. In need of some retail therapy? The local Avondale malls will do nicely.

Family-friendly pursuits near Avondale

It doesn’t matter which Avondale vacation rental you pick – the myriad attractions in Phoenix are all just a short drive away. This is where you’ll want to come for an exciting day or night out, and culture-seekers will particularly enjoy the Heard Museum. This is an important treasury of Native American art, where you can see Navajo jewelry, Southwestern ceramics, and vivid paintings that show this part of the States in a new light. The rugged beauty of Arizona is also emphasized in the Desert Botanical Garden, with its desert trails dotted with prickly formations of agave and cacti.

Snowbird season in Avondale

When it comes to picking the right time to escape to Arizona, it’s worth knowing that – while Avondale is an all-year-round kind of place – the whole area is particularly popular from around November to April. This is when winter visitors, or snowbirds, flock here from the north, eager to escape the cold elsewhere. It’s worth booking far in advance if you’re visiting during this period. That said, if you don’t mind soaring temperatures, the summer is worth considering as well. After all, as the locals will remind you, it’s only a dry heat.

A community surrounded by epic grandeur

Avondale is just under 20 miles west of Phoenix, and is nestled amid the epic landscape of Arizona. The waters of the Agua Fria River run through the community, leading to the craggy sweep of Estrella Mountain Regional Park. Here, you can explore a large wetland, go hiking or mountain biking along miles of trails, keeping an eye out for darting rock wrens and cunning lizards. If you’re feeling extra-adventurous, you can head out east to Camelback Mountain, whose dramatic, sandstone peak is a magnet for hikers.
