Where You’ll Stay
You and your dog both deserve a vacation and, when planning a dog friendly trip, waggle always has your back. This downtown Phoenix Airbnb bungalow is a spacious, comfortable home base in the Arts District. Get your very own private vacation home with all the amenities, including free wifi, parking, cable, and more. Your four-legged friend will be most pleased with the backyard, mostly for bathroom and romping purposes, but also for the BBQing possibilities (there is a grill and picnic table with use encouraged).

This sweet home is also close to fabulous bars, restaurants and museums in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Free bicycles are included with your stay and lovely bike paths line the neighborhood for an active way to see the city.

Cindi and Derrick own the home and live across the street. There are pages and pages of rave reviews on Airbnb about both the space and Cindi and Derrick as hosts. Anything you need, from a car to more free loaner bikes and everything in between, they’re willing to provide.

Why We Love It
This bungalow is suitable for events, an ideal size and setup for pets, and accessible to Phoenix’s sites—all making it a most versatile choice of stay. Whether it’s reuniting with old college buddies or a family trip with the hubby and kids, there is no need to stay in a sprawling resort to do Phoenix in style. With the warm weather, sick Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses, foodie spots, and vibrant nightlife, there are endless possibilities for both man and beast.

What You Need to Know
Comfortably fitting up to six people with two large bedrooms and two queen sized beds, this Phoenix Airbnb goes for $119 a night with a $50 charge for additional guests after four. Check in is at 3 PM. Check out is at 12 PM. Cindi and Derrik do not charge cleaning, laundry, or parking fees. What class! And finally, remind your dog to pack for hot weather.

Editor’s Note: As always, we recommend that you check with the dog friendly Airbnb homeowner for specific restrictions on breed, size, or number of dogs allowed in the residence.
