Renting a home in Scottsdale as vacation rental.

Has anyone experienced the City of Scottsdale actually enforcing the ordinance that bans the rental of a residence for less than 30 days?

Nope.

that is like the Tempe "no more than 3 unrelated people can live in a home" law, that has never been enforced ever. 

A, how would the city attorney or police ever know?
B. how would they prove it? FORCE you to provide a lease? 

How short a lease are you talking about? write one for 31 days, and a separate agreement to cancel it early if the leaser chooses to.

You can rent it and not live in it for less than 30 days, I believe the thing is you have to 'rent it for 30 days' I have clients in Florida who will rent in buildings for 30 days but only take the condo for two weeks because that is their vacation time.

There are many laws that go "unenforced" but still, you have to consider it.  In other words dont be surprised if they crack down on you.  Just because others get away with it, or you have in the past, is no excuse if it becomes a problem now.
I know of many people that take risks, including not declaring rental income to the IRS.  That is their call, but one of the reason(s) I sleep well at night, I don't break laws that I am aware of.  Something to consider as well.

Best of luck.

Many communities in Scottsdale have similar rules in their CC&R's but are rarely enforced. I know DC Ranch was trying to crack down on it a few years ago. If you post an ad on craigslist or vrbo.com it is pretty easy for the HOA to find out who is breaking the rules.
