In this day and age, vacation homes have become the way to stay while traveling. They are an especially good value for groups as opposed to multiple hotel rooms. Check out:
Coral Cliffs Townhomes offers 2 and 3 bedroom units all with private hot tubs for very reasonable rates. Yes, they offer jeep tours too!
My Western Star Vacation Rentals has two units that have fabulously fun decor. One is a two bedroom/two bath and the other is a studio.
Burro Flats High Desert Lodge is a McMansion that offers individual rooms with private bathrooms in a beautiful setting and includes the benefits of a communal kitchen and entertainment area.
If those are all booked, try looking at this vacation homeowners group of homes: kanabutahvacationrentals.com
Booking directly with the homeowners is always the least expensive option. You can also try HOUFY.com for a no-fee booking platform that will save you hundreds over VRBO, HomeAway and AirBNB.
