About Jim Humphrey
I am a retired custom home builder. We searched and searched for just the right location and there is none better for privacy and seclusion. We built the main house in 1994 and added the Casita approximately in 2004.

Quiet beautiful paradise
Property and Casita is well cared for with flowering yard and views. Casita had every amenity. Jim was also kind enough to let us stay an extra day. Area information about trails was also provided. Comfortable and pleasant stay!
A desert escape
This place was perfect. The view from the back yard is just breathtaking. The sunrise and sunsets are unreal. It was alive with quail, coyotes, hummingbirds, and all sorts of desert creatures. The saguaro cacti are enormous. The house is beautifully decorated, and very clean. Jim is the best! The petroglyphs, which are in the backyard, are a must see! We rented a utv and had the best time. We saw a ghost town and some Indian ruins. We also drove up to the Grand Canyon. That was a nice day trip. Sedona isn’t far away from here either. It’s amazing there! This little town now has a peice of my heart. Thank you Jim for your hospitality. This place really is a gem! Love from Franklin, Tennessee❤️
So nice, this was our second year
We have many favorites - the quiet, the good beds, the well stocked kitchen, the friendly host, but the absolute best is the enjoyed the peace of the Tonto National Forest. There is nothing between you and the forest - good for bird-watching, book reading, and quiet. We will be back next year.
The best kept secret casita in Arizona!
Jim Is most accommodating host providing the guests with a very well equipped kitchen and lovely furnishings in the southwestern style. The backyard is walled and backs up to the mountains in the Tonto National Forest. The views can not be more spectacular. On top of that, you can sit in the backyard jacuzzi and watch the moon come out and listen to the beautiful singing coyotes. You can hike a long trail directly behind the house that leads to the mountains. New River is a great location since you are in the center of the state and can access many places. There is nothing better than staying in your home from home casita in order the fully experience the desert. A hotel would never compare to this luxury. Once you get bit, you will keep coming. Plenty of room for 4 people and gives lots of privacy. I have stayed in many casitas over the years and this one is TOPS. 5+ stars for this paradise.
