Have you ever visited the Grand Canyon in Arizona? If you haven’t, you definitely owe it to yourself to experience one of the most popular destinations in the world. Every year, millions of people come to see the canyon’s amazing vistas and unique geology.
While the South Rim is the most popular stopping point for most travelers, The North Rim offers a different perspective of the canyon and is often less crowded than the South Rim.
Hiking to the bottom of the canyon is another great way to experience its majesty. Although it is a demanding hike, you are rewarded with views that cannot be seen from the rim.
Regardless of where you start, it’s all about how you finish, and each of the AirBNB Grand Canyon properties I’ve located below will make sure that you end your trip on a beautifully high note.

The King Tent is a glamping option for couples and is located on the Wander Camp property off Highway 64 on the way from Williams to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim entrance.
This is an off-grid location meaning there is no electricity at the camp, only solar lanterns and plenty of dark skies, which is perfect for star gazing. Although it may lack certain modern amenities, the camp does have warm showers, running water sinks, and basic toiletries.
Guests will need to bring towels and other desired toiletry items. Pets are welcome with a nonrefundable pet deposit of $20 per night.
Your tent includes a King bed and is within walking distance of shared bathrooms, so you’ll get to know the neighbors in an intimate way while still preserving your own privacy.
Up to six guests can enjoy this three-bedroom, one-bath AirBNB Grand Canyon cabin located approximately 30 minutes from the Grand Canyon. It’s off-grid and solar-powered on 10 acres of near-secluded land.

Your group will have hot water, a dryer, an indoor fireplace, and a full kitchen, as well as a fireplace and barbecue grill outside. You’ll need to be mindful of your power usage, but you shouldn’t worry because there is a backup generator for cloudy days.
Just north of the town of Williams, this tiny home dubbed the “Velvet Underground” (points if you know the band) is an eco-luxury dream that is a pristine home base to return to after a long day on the trails at Grand Canyon National Park.
The tiny home sits on an 80-acre ranch and provides uninterrupted views of Red Butte and the San Francisco Peaks, and offers plenty of dark skies in the evening, making it the perfect place to watch the Milky Way float through the sky.
There are a few nearby casitas that are also rented out, but you’ll have plenty of room to yourself. A commons building gives visitors a chance for an amazing outdoor dining and lounging experience.
A word of caution before booking: the road to the tiny home is a 4-mile, completely unpaved road that has deep dips in places. After the rain, the road can be muddy and is, at some points, extremely rocky. A four-wheel drive vehicle with higher clearance is highly recommended.
