In the US, Easter is the springtime holiday celebrating the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Area churches will be covered in white lilies and greenery while putting on Easter celebrations and concerts. And for kids of all ages, it’s the time for chocolate bunnies, tiny foiled covered chocolate eggs, marshmallow chicks, jellybeans, and colorful eggs nestled in pretty Easter baskets. While not typically a traveling holiday, planning a Phoenix Easter getaway in our Easter rentals is a great option!

Kid Friendly Phoenix Easter Rentals
The kids can get their fill of candy and Easter eggs at any of the local egg hunts and festivities happening in the area during Easter week. The Easter Egg Hunt at Shamrock Farms will have guided tours of the farm, visits with the farm’s mascot Roxie, egg hunting, face painting, crafts and more (reservations are required). Nearby Fountain Hills will have over 15,000 candy-filled eggs hidden for the kids. They’ll also have bounce houses, crafts and more. Give our staff a call to inquire about Easter activities near your rental.
You can also have your own egg hunt in the backyard of your Phoenix rental. The kids can hunt for colorful eggs and candy at their own pace—no getting up at the crack of dawn or fighting crowds. Have your own hunt whenever you want, right out back. Hide their Easter eggs around the pool and among the cacti. You can set up your own crafts table outside – have the kids decorate Easter eggs or embellish cutouts of cacti, coyote and cowboy boots. Put a new twist on the traditional egg hunt and hide colorful plastic eggs filled with candy and more. Add a ticket good for fun activities during your stay here: a visit to the Phoenix Zoo, a saltwater rafting trip, or a trip to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix or the Musical Instrument Museum. A trip through the Sonoran Desert on horseback or ATV would be great surprise, and one your kids won’t ever forget.
Rent one of our villas with a pool and let the kids dive for their eggs! Imagine how cute those little yellow PEEPS will look arranged on the putting green! (Yes, we have rentals with putting greens!) And most of our rentals have porches and shaded patios just right for enjoying that first cup of coffee while you watch the hunt and admire the beautiful scenery. Get the kids up early to watch the sun rise over the mountains before they start the hunt for colorful treats. What a great new Easter tradition!
Many restaurants in Phoenix and the surrounding area will be offering special Easter brunches and dinners. There are a wide variety of choices too, from polished three-course meals to laid-back, easygoing buffets.Your group can decide on how dressed up they want to get, and what cuisine they’d like (from southwestern to traditional). The buffet at T.Cook’s at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa includes oysters and a dessert bar amid amazing views of Camelback Mountain. Wright’s at the Biltmore starts things early with an Easter egg hunt for the kids and a brunch buffet from 9am to 2:30pm. With a modern twist on iconic Frank Lloyd Wright’s style, Wright’s offers a unique setting fit for its unique blend of tastes from the desert area. Head to nearby Chandler for a western-themed brunch and egg hunt at the Rawhide Steakhouse. Don’t forget to make a reservation if you’re dining out.
Pre-order and pick up your meal from a local restaurant, then serve it up out under the porch or on the patio by the pool. The springtime weather is perfect for al fresco dining! Many restaurants will be offering special Easter menus to go, and you can give our staff a call ahead of time for suggestions and help in reserving your meal. Or for a special treat, talk with our staff about engaging a private chef to come to your rental and cook up a delicious meal right in front of your eyes!
Or, to make sure your family can feast on all their favorites, cook your brunch in-house and don’t worry about reservations. All of our Easter AZ rentals have fully equipped kitchens, and some offer gourmet kitchens and outdoor kitchens as well! When you select one of our rentals with an outdoor grill, you can amaze your family with your grilling skills. Serve up a succulent leg of lamb or go for a classic prime rib roast and top off the meal with Bobby Flay’s grilled Dessert Pizza or try Marinated Grilled Peaches with Cloves (with ice cream)!
Feeling like a nice casual buffet, but need some suggestions? Or, maybe you want to grill out, but aren’t sure where to get the best lamb shank and fresh asparagus? Not to worry, our staff at Parsons Villas will be happy to help! We can offer dining suggestions, bunny or egg hunt locations, or even weather updates—whatever you need to make this Easter AZ holiday perfect. Give us a call today!
