About Mike & RosaLee walsh

This beautiful 1 1/12 acres has been in the family over fifty years. Back then there were no roads to our property. How Cave Creek has changed! We took a big step six years ago and built this beautiful home on the acreage. It was a challenge and well worth the effort. We are now retired and enjoy traveling. We've used VRBO many times and decided since we are familiar with VRBO, will register our home on VRBO for you to enjoy.

Mike & RosaLee walsh purchased this house in 2006

Why Mike & RosaLee walsh chose Arizona

We are located in the beautiful high sonoran desert. The home is in a rural setting on an unpaved road yet close to recreational activities and entertainment and shopping.


What makes this house unique

The floor plan is large and comfortable. The views are spectacular.

Perfect home for Family get together

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this property for almost 3 weeks in November, we know Cave Creek really well having traveled there from the UK on many occasions and often rented through VRBO. Mike and RosaLee really could not have been more helpful - nor could their home be more perfect. We invited friends to stay for a few days at the beginning and then our daughters flew in for the last weekend. One also from the UK with her husband and the other from LA. We had always wanted to get the family together in our favorite part of the world. The house is huge and just perfect for entertaining with literally everything you could possibly want or need. It is ideally situated just south of the wonderful Cave Creek with excellent local supermarkets, golf courses, hiking trails, restaurants etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and could not recommend it more highly.

Wonderful Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a little more than a month in this home and were sad to have to go back home to Iowa. The house is gorgeous and also accommodated our family and friends who visited us during our stay. Mike and Rosalee have thought of everything that you might need in any room of the house AND outside living spaces. This is by far the nicest home we have ever rented. The reviews are all accurate. We hope to come back and stay in the future. We already miss the quail, bunnies, happy hour on the patio, and the sunsets from the roof. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was a pleasure meeting you both!

Don't hesitate to rent this home, you will not be disappointed.

Family and Friends Vacation

We stayed here in Feb. We were surprised how spacious the home was. It is just beautiful. I would highly recommend this home. Convenient to shopping. We just wanted to stay at the house and relax. The owners were very hospitable. Hope to stay here again.

We stayed here due to all the excellent reviews they had. They were all true! The house is tremendous. I'm not sure why someone would want to rent out their home but it was extremely comfortable and modern. The property is large and if you are looking for a place that isn't fenced in by neighbors this is it. We went up on the roof for evening views of the sun going down over the mountains. There is nothing more beautiful. Mike and Rosalee are very accommodating. They were not there when we got there but everything was planned ahead of time and we had not trouble. I would highly recommend this for anyone.

A Desert Delight

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for 10+ years and this was one of the nicest places we have stayed. The owners were very kind, the home is lovely and very well appointed. We particularly enjoyed the split floor plan as we were two couples traveling together. The kitchen is beautiful and had everything we needed to cook and/or grill. The outdoor living space is fantastic with great views- perfect for "wine time". Highly recommend.
