About Jim Howe
Born in Phoenix and Native American I attended Arizona State and have always had a home in Phoenix. As a youth I worked in my mother's hotel and bar. Later I managed restaurants and in 1976 I opened my own in Minneapolis. Soon I opened Native American airport gift stores in Minneapolis, Orlando and JFK New York. After 25 years of airport retail I retired in 2002 and live in Paradise Valley.
Jim Howe purchased this Studio in 1987
Why Jim Howe chose Mummy Mountain Park
This property is on the North side of Mummy Mountain, Paradise Valley, AZ. This property looks North toward North Scottsdale, Carefree, Pinnacle Peak and the McDowell Mountain Range. To the East, Four Peaks and the Superstition Mountains are in view from your private deck. At night there is a vista of twinkling lights, clear night sky and a feeling of magic.
What makes this Studio unique
Situated on the side of a mountain this property is home to Arizona wildlife. Coyotes, owls, javalina, rabbits, quail and road runners inhabit the mountain. Walking the roads is an invigorating experience and you will find at any pace is a pleasure. Relaxing on your private deck and enjoying the warmth of Arizona will be just what you need to return home fully recharged.

This casita is beautiful and has an authentic southwestern decor including fireplace. We were so comfortable, it was difficult to leave. Jim, the owner made sure we had everything we needed and we did. We were able to grill on a deck eating out with family that overlooked the valley and mountains. We watched the sun go down and the lights come on that evening and each night (and the sunrise, too). We had a car and lots of restaurants, stores and activities were close by. One of the best places we have stayed in comparison to the high end resorts in the area. It was a fun and relaxing ten day stay. I would definitely return.
To The Raymonds,
You were the perfect guests and I am very thankful you chose to spend you valuable vacation time at my casita. Be well, take care and I hope our paths cross again. Thank you.
Beautiful view. Very quiet. Very helpful host.
Would recommend it to others.
Thank you Jim for letting us cancel our reservations. We could not be that far from Ky with my wife’s mother in current condition. We hope to make it there next year. Thanks again Jim.
I realize things do happen to de-rail plans and I am flexible and also known as Mr Agreeable. I hope you look me up in the internet and contact me if you want to book a stay with me and VacationRentals. Take care and hope everyone is well

Paradise Valley, AZ
Fantastic property. Casita was very cozy and comfortable. Location was excellent,just minutes from restaurants and all that Scottsdale has to offer. Jim was very nice, snacks waiting in the kitchen, beer in the frig and he brought 2 sets of bikes for us to use to ride around the neighborhood. Couldn't have been better!
An active good looking couple who spoiled me with being the "Perfect guests."
"Paradise" in the Valley!
From the day our request was accepted to the moment we drove away from Paradise Valley, our host Jim and his wife were the best! Pre-trip questions were answered quickly and anything and everything we needed to help us begin our stay was in the guest house when we arrived - snacks, bottled water, fresh fruit, bath and beach towels, kitchen supplies, and a phone charger stand as well! Jim's suggestions on places to dine or buy a few groceries were extremely helpful!
If you are looking to get away and spend some time relaxing in a quiet, beautiful, private location, while still being close to several wonderful activities in the Arizona sun, this is the place to go! We arrived as guests in a stranger's world, but thanks to our hosts' caring consideration for our happiness, we left a week later feeling like we had visited long-time family friends! It was a week we will never forget!
Thank you for everything!

"A genuine pleasure hosting genuine people" We hope someday their path brings them back to Paradise Valley.
A great place to stay in Scottsdale/Phoenix area.
We stayed at Jim’s place from Feb 11-18/18 and had a wonderful time.
From the communication with Jim shortly after booking via VRBO to meeting his wife and him on the date of arrival, right through to check out, we were very pleased.
An oasis in a very busy desert (we put over 600 miles on the rental), we looked forward to getting “home” each night to relax and review and plan the next day. Comfortable king size bed, TV channels were expansive, Internet speeds and reach were great, the kitchen was filled with the essentials and a BBQ grill was there if we chose to use it. The pool looked inviting - with warmer weather we would have tried it. The views from this mountain side home were fantastic.
We highly recommend.
