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 Florence
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.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Due to an unplanned medical problem our gracious host, Marsha, offered us very nice studio apartment attached to the house. It had a privet entry and patio with hot tub. It also had a king size bed that was very comfortable. The kitchen did not have a stove but did have a toaster oven and this was fine for us since we ate out most nights. Over all we had a great stay and the Wahls bent over backwards to make sure all was well. The only problem was our own doing as to get to places was farther that we thought. Not really a big deal and the surrounding area was great. Thanks again for a good place to stay.
Thank you for changing to the studio. Our other guests are able to fly home on Wednesday, to Michigan. She had a bowel obstruction surgery, and he had open heart surgery. While this wasn’t anything to do with our guesthouse, it happened unexpectedly. So with that , we needed to move your reservation.
If by any chance, come on back. Their are so many more things to explore in this part of Arizona. Thank you for your staying here.
This is a special opportunity. Close enough to all interests we had, but far enough out, that you can easily see the stars at nite. Great accommodations, set up extremely well kept and fully equipped. Our hosts felt like family in a short time. Some very nice and extremely helpful people, made the adventure special.
I would return as often as I could. It was a marvelous vacation.
Good base for making day trips
The hosts are super nice! Very friendly and helpful. The apartment is clean and nicely furnished. A few minor problems were fixed immediately. Location is quiet and convenient. There are lots of interesting places around for day trips. All in all, a good value for the money. Internet connection is not good, but there is a McDonalds in Florence.
Great place to stay!
Well stocked,clean,quiet,great hosts!
We hated to leave and can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed having you come here and visit our part of the southwest. It is fun sharing this with all our guests.
Desert setting, five acers of desert, walking trail, some wildlife.
Birds of all sizes. the Quail come in by the dozens in the winter, to drink from the fountains. Hummingbirds, doves, wrens, hawks, a great horned owl visits time to time. Even a snowbird or two this winter.
Plants of the desert all to see. Blooming thru out the year. Several kinds of cactus. From yard and beyond.
BBQ on your private patio.
This a quiet area. But the amazing thing is the way the desert and the sunlight put on the most beautiful display. Every day it's a new show!
I have a couple of mt. bikes, if you ask.
Horseshoes, for a game. Putting Hole for Golf practice.
Mini golf, 18 hole and adding more this fall. Have putters!
Fire pit , on site, and on your patio, nice in the evenings, in the winter. my favorite is a roasting of the smores, local wine from the Windmill Winery in Florence.
Hiking the near by Box canyon, is a nice easy day trip , with a box lunch you'll need. Great for a average to beginner, to do. Its about three miles long, flat, with a gradule in cline. This was used by the stagecoach lines as a short cut from Florence to Superior, Az. Now when hiking I have a sincere appreciation for good shoes and SUV's.
( I did spot a big horned sheep on a trip out there , it was up near the top, at the beginning of the canyon.) There is a ATV outfit that does charters for this area as well.
