The Best Airbnbs in Lake Havasu – 18 Exquisite Rentals

Lake Havasu City is an Arizona tourist hotspot. And, dear traveler, you are in luck – there are plenty of large and affordable Airbnbs to choose from! Instead of taking your time searching through these rentals yourself, I have included all the important information you are going to need on my list.

If you aren’t from Arizona or California, you might not have heard of Lake Havasu City before – but it is a happening tourist destination. Every year, up to 1.5 million people visit this small city, where they spend most of their time lounging on the water or enjoying one of the many parties.

The lake and party scene aren’t the only things to enjoy in this city. The old London Bridge – that was brought stone-by-stone from London – is the second most visited attraction in Arizona (after the Grand Canyon). During the winter months, the desert surrounding Lake Havasu is also a great place to enjoy hiking, camping, ATV riding, and more. 

When staying in Lake Havasu, your best bet will be to choose from one of these amazing vacation rentals I have listed below:
