Working at home wasn’t bad at first. It was pretty cool to work in comfy clothes with the dog in your lap, and best of all to not have that long commute. But now your home office is looking pretty permanent and there’s no separation between work and home spaces anymore. It may be time for a change of venue—it may be that it’s time to make working long-distance really long distance. Everything’s done online anyway, so why not take advantage? It’s time for wide-open spaces, bright blue skies and brilliant starry nights, and the Wild West. It’s time for Arizona!
Your New Office Away from Home
Pack up your office stuff and come on out to a slower-paced existence in Arizona! Or better yet, forget packing and lugging it all out here and just rent what you need when you get to your Arizona vacation rental. Our Arizona home rentals all have free Wi-Fi, so setting up in your new office space will be a breeze. Why not take over the dining room for your new space? You’ll be eating all your meals outside on the porch or by the pool anyway. Or, rent one of our luxury villas that features a separate office and just move on in.
Either way, you’ll be looking out at the surrounding desert and rugged mountain terrain. Maybe it’s time for an outdoor office. Most of our Arizona rentals have covered porches and outdoor living spaces that are perfect for enjoying the desert weather in an outdoor setup that’s just a few steps from your refreshing swimming pool. Wherever you set up, all it takes is a few deep breathes of that clean, fresh air and you’ll be ready for a few more hours of work. And a quick dip in the pool will be a refreshing break at any time.
You may be thinking –why Arizona? Here are a few reasons:
Weather: Over 300 sunny days a year!
History: Native American culture, pueblos and cliff dwellings and the old West with its fur trappers, stagecoaches, and miners.
Nature: The Grand Canyon! And the Sonoran Desert –home to hummingbirds, rattlers, roadrunners, javelinas, and towering saguaro cactus.
And so many national parks! There’s Red Rock State Park, Saguaro National Park, Casa Grande National Monument, Montezuma Castle National Monument (with amazing cliff dwellings), McDowell Sonoran Preserve, and Vermilion Cliffs National Monument with its gorgeous striated rock formations, just to name a few.
It’s not all desert either. Saguaro Lake, Lake Powell, Lake Mead, Colorado River, the Salt River, and the Gila River provide much-needed water and fun activities to the area.
There are so many great cities and historic places to visit including laid back Sedona where you can see the Milky Way in its entirety in glorious color: Flagstaff with one of the best-preserved meteor craters in the world and the Lowell Observatory (where Pluto was discovered);
Scottsdale with the world-renown art galleries of Old Town, Camelback Mt., Taliesin West, and the Soleri Bells; and Tombstone (the town too tough to die) with the O.K. Corral.
Book one of our Arizona home rentals in the center of the state so you can take day trips to all the historic places you’ve heard about, or stay in a vacation rental close to one of your favorite parks or monuments. You’ll have plenty of things to do in your spare time –hiking, biking, mountain climbing, rappelling, white water rafting, fishing and more! Or stay in one of our beautiful cities with shops, spas, and five-star restaurants.
Amenities to Enjoy at Our Arizona Rentals
We’ve already mentioned the free Wi-Fi, covered porches, and swimming pools, but there’s more. All of our vacation rentals have fully equipped kitchens with coffee makers (an office necessity) and plenty of room to heat up those leftover burritos for breakfast. The soft, cool bed linens will welcome you after a long hard day of working and playing outdoors. And many of our luxury vacation rentals feature other amenities too, like dedicated Game or TV rooms, putting greens, heated spas, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces. Most have firepits, so you can snuggle up around the fire at the end of the day while you watch shooting stars.
Your New Home Away from Home
Arizona has a diverse geography that includes ancient, deeply carved canyons, high rugged volcanic mountain ranges, semiarid plateaus, and hot, arid deserts covered with cacti and creosote bushes. Our vacation rentals come in a variety of locations too, and your newly relocated office can be on the edge of the desert or tucked up under the rough, craggy mountains, or in the heart of one of the many exciting cities in this southwest paradise.
If you are having trouble deciding on what part of Arizona you’d like to relocate to, let us give you a hand. From the largest strand of evergreen ponderosa pine forest in the world to the badlands of the Painted Desert with its colored sediments and rocks, there’s a spot here for you.
