How to find a place to stay for a month or longer.

Hello All, we are considering a month or so in Tucson and I am wondering what lodging options might be available to us. The obvious things that come to mind are AirBnB, VBRO, Marriott Homes and Villas.

For a stay of this length cost is our biggest concern, not amenities. By that I mean non-hotel options are fine. Ill need to work during this time. More space is better than less space.

Are there other long term options we should be looking at, corporate rentals, timeshares, something else?

What options do you pick for long stays?

Try Furnishedfinder

https://www.furnishedfinder.com/

P.S. also can try searching via zellow rental homes and booking vacation rentals. Avoid craigslist

We travel like this often and find that AirBnB is better for outside the US and VBRO better for inside. Just our experience. And we consider cost secondary and are more concerned with comfort and convenience. Having a kitchen, multiple bedrooms, etc. is well worth it.

The nice thing about smaller cities like Tucson is that you can look 10-30 miles away and never notice the difference if you have a car.

If your stay is in the summer, you can often sublease an apartment from a student who is going to be gone during that time. Perhaps check local Facebook groups for the University of Arizona.

I have often stayed for over a month in an AirBNB. When looking at AirBNBs, many hosts offer a large discount for one month stays. Check the pricing details to find those deals.

And when nothing was listed, we've contacted some to ask and they then offered a decent discount.

Another thing you can do is phone up some hotels in the area you are looking to stay at (inside Tuscon). Many hotels have monthly rates as well.

Check with local agencies

I've had success in AZ by checking with local realtors and property management firms. If you have contacts in the area who are on Nextdoor, ask them to post a message looking for a rental for you

We have rented houses in Tucson for a month many times. Typically with Airbnb, VRBO and Craigslist. Some of the apartment complexes also rent furnished units.
January and February are very high demand times. Prices are very high and availability low.
