A spacious, luxury rental in beautiful Scottsdale, Phoenix, or Paradise Valley provides the perfect basecamp for a small family gathering. Basing your Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas, or New Year celebrations in the warm, bright Arizona desert allows you to maximize time outdoors, and Porter’s collection of 4+ bedroom rentals offer seclusion and comfort for all, plus well-appointed kitchens for making perfect family meals.


Why You Should Consider a Holiday trip to Arizona

Temperatures are starting to drop across the northern U.S., and most states are experiencing shorter days due to daylight savings. Guess what? Arizona doesn’t participate in daylight savings. That’s right. You can still enjoy hikes, bike rides, or a round of golf well into the afternoon and evening.

Average highs around Thanksgiving and Christmas range from 67°F to 75°F, with lows varying from 36°F to 42°F. Snow is possible but generally sparse and infrequent. More likely, you’ll experience a warm, dry climate that you’ll never want to leave.


Your Home-Away-from-Home for the Holidays

A 4+-bedroom vacation rental is an ideal size for two families, grandparents, and a couple of aunts and uncles to stay and share indoor spaces comfortably. Our homes come with top-of-the-line, fully equipped kitchens, and ample dining and indoor and outdoor common spaces provide the perfect basecamp to cook memorable meals and make merry with loved ones.
