Nightly & Weekly Vacation Rentals & Condos in Tempe AZ - Lowest Price Guarantee!

Located just minutes from downtown Phoenix by rail or car, this happening college town boasts heaps of sunshine (330 days a year, in fact) and a solid array of things to do. Sun Devil territory is, of course, home to the academic and athletic powerhouse that is ASU, but Tempe is a town to visit in its own right. Featuring a lively downtown with plenty of tasty, locally-owned eateries, sip-tastic Arizona microbreweries, festivals, live performances and cultural events, there’s never a dull moment in this desert destination.

Tempe Beach Park

Visualize an urban paradise where you can walk to the best of the arts, entertainment, dining and shopping – or spend the day paddling across a pristine lake, sunbathing on its sandy beaches, or jogging on smooth paths that line its shores. That’s what you get just outside your Stay Alfred vacation rental at Tempe Town Lake. To get your visual arts fix, you don’t have to travel far because creativity is everywhere here. The ASU Arts Museum, The Gallery at Tempe Center for the Arts, and She Tempe in downtown Tempe all offer breathtaking exhibits of local and world-renowned work. This walkable neighborhood also features mouthwatering restaurants, cozy cafes and a weekly farmers’ market, so, in addition to plenty of sunscreen, make sure to bring your appetite.

Tempe - Downtown

Concerts, galleries, a vibrant open-air market, good eating for days… welcome to downtown Tempe, where there’s always something new to discover and where the sun (nearly) always shines. While you’re here, you might find yourself starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast (and maybe even a mimosa) at Ncounter, taking in some great public art, like the She Tempe project that adorns downtown newsstands, grabbing a burger on the patio over at Handlebar and then deciding whether to enjoy an evening of fine dining at House of Tricks or the live music and hearty fare at Culinary Dropout instead. Make your downtown Tempe stay that much better by booking an apartment by Stay Alfred that will put it all at your doorstep.
