Lake Havasu

Lake Havasu is a large reservoir formed by Parker Dam on the Colorado River in 1938. At the time of completion, this dam was erected in an uninhabited region of the Mojave Desert on the border between San Bernardino County, California, and La Paz County, Arizona. Today, the lake covers 35 miles of the river along the Arizona/California border, and for much of its length is rather inaccessible; however, it offers views of the rugged mountains that surround the lake. Lake Havasu was named after the Mojave word for “blue” and today is a popular destination for its clean water and scenic surroundings.

Lake Havasu City offers all the necessary facilities for a vacation at any time of year. The main recreation activities around the lake include enjoying the sandy beaches, fishing, and boating. Not only that, but there are also some good hiking trails for people of every skill level.

Beach Access

Who needs an ocean with those pesky riptides and predatory water creatures when you’ve got 400 miles of stunning coastline right here? Some of Lake Havasu’s most treasured beachfronts can be found at Lake Havasu State Park, London Bridge Beach, and Rotary Community Park. Depending on where you end up, Enjoy the white sandy beaches, covered ramadas with picnic tables, playgrounds, volleyball courts, and so much more.

Fishing/Boating at Lake Havasu

Free fishing docks are plentiful all around the Lake Havasu area and all are open 24 hours a day. A downloadable map can be found at golakehavasu.com. Lake Havasu has multiple marinas and launch ramps available for your convenience. To launch for free, head to Site Six, the Havasu City municipal launch ramp. With a plethora of options to choose from whether you require a motorized or non-motorized launch ramp or marina, just be sure to check in with the marina or launch ramp you with use prior to launching to ensure you’ve met all boating requirements for Lake Havasu.


From town, take a leisurely stroll on the Shoreline Trail, a 2-mile walk around Lake Havasu that truly maximizes the desert sunset. Other favorite walks within the city include the Island Trail (3.6 miles) and the Mohave Sunset Trail (4 miles).

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!

It's hard to match the beauty of Moab. If you're looking for a 5-star stay in a 5-star town do not hesitate to book. This place has it all... cleanliness, comfort (seriously comfortable beds), all the amenities, and amazing hosts! Would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to have the opportunity in the future.
