If you’re looking for an Airbnb with a little more of a community feel, you’ll love this spot at Beachcomber Estates Park. Pulling together the best parts of staying in a resort and staying in an Airbnb, it’s a place sealed off for your enjoyment and privacy but with plenty to do in one of America’s best lake towns. With two bedrooms and space for up to four guests, it’s designed with plenty of room. Head down to the communal pool for organized card games and water aerobics in the daytime. The Beachcomber hosts daily activities and games you’re free to partake in during your stay. As for the house itself, it’s home to modern, white decor with seriously plush sofas, a welcoming setup, and two double beds plus one additional sofa bed.
This one-bedroom Airbnb is located on the island of Lake Havasu itself, so you’re pretty much surrounded by breathtaking water views. Set inside Sam’s Beachcomber Resort, staying here comes with not only all of the facilities at the Airbnb itself but also the greater resort. A perfect place for a couple or a small family looking for a relaxing summer vacation in Arizona, it’s a place where you’ll likely spend most of your time in or on the water. That might be the lake itself, or maybe you’d rather spend your days here relaxing by one of the resort’s pools. The house has a beautiful view of the Lake Havasu Mountains and a partial lake view with access to the Beachcomber private launch ramp. It’s a gated community with 24-hour security, a spa, a gym, and a clubhouse with many activities.

If you’re into photography, or simply enjoy nice views, you’ll fall in love with this spot, located right on the river with the best views in town of both the channel and London Bridge. Located on the third floor with no neighbors above, it’s both peaceful yet centrally located for exploring the local area.

If you find some free time, there’s Bocce ball and backyard miniature golf to keep you entertained.
There’s a good reason this Airbnb is called “Backyard Paradise.” As soon as you’ve seen this place in real life, you’ll probably want to schedule a time to rebook in the future. This gorgeous villa is most loved for its incredible swimming pool: a large, uniquely shaped spot where you’ll probably spend most of your time. Not feeling a dip in the pool? There’s also a jacuzzi you can arrange to use. This three-bedroom property is the owner’s second home, which means it comes complete with everything you’d traditionally expect to see from a family home with a few extra special touches.

You’re also well located to explore all of the local restaurants and bars, too.
This condo may call itself a studio, but there’s room for up to four people here between the queen bed and sofa bed, making it ideal whether you’re traveling solo or with a group of up to three friends or family members. This roomy spot is cute and cozy on the inside, designed with a personal charm that promises a welcoming environment. But, if you’re traveling to Lake Havasu on a budget, you won’t find yourself overly squashed if you do end up visiting with three others. Only a five-minute drive from London Bridge, you’re well located here to explore all of the local highlights. Onsite, there are three swimming pools, three hot tubs, a sauna, and a grill available to use.
This charming lakeside house sits on its own little oasis at the exclusive Sam’s Beachcomber Resort at a point between two beaches. If you’re looking to wake up surrounded by magical views, this place is a definite must-stay. This one-bedroom spot is gorgeous, and not just because of its incredible views in every direction. While the inside of this Airbnb is pretty cozy, the outside and surrounding facilities will have you falling in love with it in no time. Enjoy the large deck with its incredible lake and sunset views, and one of the resort’s largest swimming beaches only steps away. Bringing a boat? You can also moor it here, doubling the amount of fun you’re set to have in Arizona. There’s access to the spa included, too, if you’re looking to go all out with the relaxation.
This Airbnb has almost entirely been renovated in recent years, including a new master bedroom, a new bathroom, an extra outside deck, and plenty of unique features dotted throughout. So even if you’ve stayed here before, you’re practically returning to a new spot! Home to two bedrooms and space for up to six guests, it faces the lake, meaning there are gorgeous views from plenty of the rooms. One of the best parts? There are multiple entry points directly above the water here – one from the back of the home and another from the other side. So you’re only steps away from jumping out of bed and straight into the water. If you prefer the lake from a slightly further distance, you can also hire a golf buggy to drive around during your stay.
Little Hava House is a little different from your usual Lake Havasu Airbnb. This boho-style getaway comes with an impressive style of decor and a variety of just as impressive amenities. A place well-loved for its gorgeous surroundings, you can sit on the large wrap-around covered deck to enjoy your morning coffee or evening drinks while admiring not only a partial lake view but the red mountains and beautiful desert sunsets. Lake Havasu is one of the most unique places in Arizona to catch the sunset. Located on Grand Island, you’re given a complimentary golf cart to use during your stay here, which means you’ll have free reign of the resort to properly explore each morning. On the patio deck, you’ll find the propane BBQ grill and the two swivel chairs to relax and entertain on. There’s also a private beach a very short distance from the unit, which offers a private boat launch and private boat docks.
