As in most cities, Airbnb have gained a stranglehold on the short lets market, but if you’d prefer a short term solution that avoids you having to sign a long lease but doesn’t require you to stay in someone’s private residence, there are still a handful of options available that provide many of the same benefits. We’ve done some research and picked out three Airbnb alternatives that should help you.
Booking.com are our recommended pick for sourcing short term furnished rental in Phoenix for stays of up to a fortnight. The website is one of the world’s biggest online resources and so you can book with them with ample peace of mind. While it’s primarily a hotel booking website, Booking.com also has plenty of apartments and aparthotels available for rental periods of up to 30 days. When we conducted searches for short stays in Phoenix, around 20 apartments were available, ranging from basic studios through to properties with multiple rooms. The cheapest rates we found were $107 for a one-bed apartment for a 30-day stay . Booking.com also offer a Best Price Guarantee so you know you won’t find cheaper elsewhere, as well as a reviews section featuring feedback from past guests.
For anyone seeking a short stay aparthotel, Extended Stay America are among the most reputable online resources currently on the market. Featuring properties across North America, they cater to a wide range of guest types and needs, from families wanting a cheap vacation with plenty of home comforts to business travellers needing a temporary accommodation solution. All of their aparthotels are fully furnished and come with practical amenities and services such as kitchens, housekeeping, and laundry facilities. Pricing includes all standard utilities and guests can benefit from any on-site facilities such as pools and gyms. Properties can be booked on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and the website’s generous ‘Stay More, Save More’ programme helps you save money on longer-term rentals. When we looked around for weekly rentals and monthly rentals in Phoenix, we found 15 options, with rates starting at around $50 per night for 2 adults. The company also offers a Best Price Guarantee.
Siegel Suites are one of Phoenix’s most well established providers of affordable, flexible stay apartments across the city, catering to single travellers all the way through to families. Apartments can be rented either furnished or unfurnished, and many of the suites are dog and pet friendly. Guests can also benefit from access to on-site amenities, which often include such facilities as swimming pools and laundromats, as well as practical services such as premium cable TV and utilities. TV and utilities bills are usually included in the rental price, too. No long term leases are required. Weekly rates start at around $160.
