You didn’t think we’d tell you all about our awesome, fun, and luxurious short term rentals without giving you a chance to experience them for yourself, did you?  

I can’t think of a better place to stay for the holiday season than Scottsdale, Arizona.  I’ve personally visited several times this year to scout out new homes for Hughberry, and I learn more about this great city every time I visit.  Not only is it warm, sunny, and full of tons of activities for the whole family — but it’s the perfect opportunity to stay in one of our Hughberry homes!   

Plus, if you book directly with us, you’ll get 15% off of your booking (Click here for instructions on how to book!)    

We have four amazing homes for you to stay in.  Let me tell you a little bit about each one.

Adobe Villa

Host a holiday barbecue, cook in a gorgeous kitchen, and keep the kiddos entertained with plenty of fun experiences.

Ideal for: Groups of families and friends who want to enjoy outdoor living in balmy Scottsdale, even during the colder months.  Accommodates up to 12 guests. 

Relax in the private pool, gather around the outdoor fireplace, and fire up the built-in gas grill to dine under the stars.  This two-story resort-style home is ideal for hosting groups.  Create meals in your fully stocked gourmet kitchen and keep the crew entertained in the game room.  Plus, you can request the keys to our fully-functional Japanese firetruck and we’ll drive it to your doorstep so you can buckle up and take it out for a spin around town.  The firetruck is shared between our properties, so be sure to message us to confirm availability.  Learn more about Adobe Villa here.

Modern Villa

This villa is cozy and hip, designed for travelers with a taste for the finer things.

Ideal for: Families and friends who are foodies and want to cook some epic meals together (and pair it with the perfect wine).  Accommodates up to 12 guests.

Relax in the private pool or spacious outdoor cabana with an outdoor fireplace, lounge area, and gas grill.  This ranch-style home is ideal for celebrating with the whole family: the gourmet kitchen comes complete with a huge wine fridge, and the garage has been transformed into a game room with foosball, ping pong, and Pacman for hours of fun.  Located 7.3 miles from downtown Scottsdale, this is a perfect desert getaway and base for exploring nearby attractions and activities.  Learn more about Modern Villa here.

Desert Cove

Desert Cove has all of the amenities of an upscale hotel but far more privacy and room to play — and is in the heart of Scottsdale’s hotspots.

Ideal for: A family that wants to get out of town for the holidays and enjoy a private, luxurious home to themselves — with plenty of games!  Accommodates up to 12 guests.  

This home boasts an expansive backyard, enormous palm trees, and spacious patio with covered gazebo, private pool, and soon… a pickleball court!  Plus: a putting green, basketball and volleyball courts, and an indoor game room featuring a 4-player arcade game with 3,500 games, a pinball machine with 337 games, sit-down auto racing, foosball… and more!  Desert Cove has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a gorgeously updated chef’s kitchen, and ample space for outdoor/indoor lounging and dining.  Learn more about Desert Cove here.


Malcomb has games galore and is a one-stop-shop for keeping boredom at bay for people of all ages.

Ideal for: Groups of families and friends who want no shortage of entertainment.  Accommodates up to 16 guests.

One of Malcomb’s many wonderful features is its huge game room, including a pinball machine with more than 300 games; sit-down auto racing; foosball; ping pong; pop shot basketball; and more!  Enjoy the outdoor deep pool, spacious lawn, plus a ground level and second-story patio with mountain views.  The enormous gourmet kitchen, complete with an automated espresso machine, is perfect for gathering around and sipping that Christmas morning brew.  Learn more about Malcomb here.

Hear what our guests have to say 

We’re especially proud that our guests have had such amazing experiences in our homes.  Here are a few reviews we’ve received this year: 

From Morgan, who stayed at Malcomb in April: 

My friends and I had the most amazing stay at this Hughberry home – from the home details; decor, layout, comfortable beds, kitchen with everything you could ever ask for, backyard with beautiful pool, bathroom amenities etc. everything about this home was beyond amazing.  The home slept our party of 11 very comfortably and I will echo that this house felt on par with a 5-star hotel We kept on saying to ourselves, “They thought of everything in this home and we wish we could bring the home back to CA with us.” 

We will 100% be recommending this home for all of our friends who are visiting Scottsdale!  This is a must book! 

From Mickey, who stayed at Desert Cove in June: 

Great house for a weekend in Scottsdale, its own mini resort!  House was in perfect shape, and they even left a welcome gift.  Will definitely recommend to anyone! 

From Danielle, who stayed at Malcomb in July: 

The house is gorgeous!  The amenities are wonderful.  Probably the best Airbnb we have stayed in.
