About Marsha Wahl

We are retired, to the south in the winter months. Have been coming to Arizona to enjoy desert and family over the years. There are a lot of things about Arizona that make it a ideal place to stay.

Marsha Wahl purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Marsha Wahl chose Arizona

This home was, Len's Mom's. She enjoyed the birds and the unique plants. We are continuing the bird feeding and viewing. Caring for the many cactus. And adding to the mix. Some are well over 100 years. The first owner would grow plants mainly cactus. and blooming ones. The guesthouse was a work Higgens began, in 96. We remodeled and up dated it in 2011. So everything is pretty new. This we will continue to take care of. It is off the highway, and very quiet. Love the birds.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking in the desert is unique. And cactus, and so different when you get close. Our son in law and daughter put a re purposed 18 hole mini golf course in. Makes putting fun! Most of our guest try this and get to liking the game. We have a camp fire night and get together for dogs and drinks.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This has been the most enjoyable time spent here! We will be back next year. The fun time goes by too fast. More hikes and rock exploring. Apache Tears were fun to dig out of the rocks. Hiking in the canyons, mini golf with hole in ones on the many unique fairways. See you next year, in 16.
