Private Homes, Playa Dorada house description
This 2000 sq ft Playa Dorada home is beautiful. It has fabulous beach sunsets and exceptionally big tide swings. The beach is full of sea shells and small sea life and Dolphin sightings are common while dining from the roof top deck.
In town, shopping is great for all who like to bargain. There is plenty of golf at the nearby Myan Palace or in town at Sandy Beach.
The beds and linens of this home are extremely comfortable and much time and effort have been invested in the furnishings and decor. There is a hammock on the large back patio and beach toys for the kids.
Because the house has four beds and four baths it is great for a couple of families or multiple couples.
This is such a great value because we would rather offer a green, solar powered home than charge you more money. We have, however, recently tied into the Mexican power grid and use it when necessary. This will enable us to maintain the functionality of all of the ceiling fans and other electricity demands that exceed our solar usage.
I ask that you limit the number of occupants to eight because of our water management. First, water is trucked in and that is expensive. Second, all of the water goes to a septic system and it has a volume limit. Please have a conservative mindset when it comes to water usage.

What a wonderful time at Casa Doce with great friends. We had perfect weather to played games all day on a beautiful sandy beach. Water was perfect, loved all the pelicans diving for fish while kayaking. Sunsets were awesome with cocktails, barbecue, tunes and lots of laughter. Great nights sleep on ultra fluffy beds to wake up to a beautiful sunrise. House was clean and perfect for 4 couples. Shells were amazing, they were everywhere. Thank you SO much. We cannot wait to go back.

Best Christmas Break ever!
Best Christmas Break ever!
I hate to give such a good review only because I want to keep this place a secret. The views from the living room are just as if you were sitting outside. We have been visiting RP for the past 17 years and have always stayed either in Las Conchas in the early days and Playa Encanto, this house and location blows it out of the water. Beds are comfortable, views are amazing and the common area within the house is perfect for large gatherings without feeling cramped. We're coming back in May and included the sister property to share with more friends. Thanks for sharing your home!

Myself and a group of friends rented Casa Doce in October 2012. I have stayed in many rental homes in Rocky Point in the past 18 years and this home is by far the best. The home is beautifully designed and very comfortable. When renting a home online, the photos often make it look like the beach is right outside your door when it isn't ... here it truly is, and the beach is not rocky as it can be in other parts of Rocky Point. I am planning a "girls' trip" for October 2013 and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

What wonderful time! All of us together within 20 yards of the water (highest tide), just plain beautiful. The house was everything that was discribed. The owner was contracted with what was a problem (preceived or not) and within a few hours a maintence man came and checked it out. Now that is a real care for your customers and satisfaction to it's fullest extent! Thank you for a great week, and we will be back!

The house was great - excellent placement on a largely secluded beach. A+ on stuff to do at the house. It came with a kayak, inner tubes, sand toys, a hammock, and even a water gun. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun family vacation.

My family and I have been coming to Puerto Penasco for vacations since I was a very young child many, many years ago. My husband and I have taken our children at least once a year since they were born. We have sacrificed many creature comforts just to be able to enjoy the beach. Mark's house is the first house we have ever stayed at where you sacrifice absolutely nothing! We had a party of six and had so much room to have our own space and still be together as a family. The house is beautiful and functional and Mark has thought of everything. There are so many windows with gorgeous views of the sea and I especially loved the rooftop access where you could relax and feel as if you had your own private place. The beds were so comfortable, a luxury we have never had before. It's obvious that each room has been so tastefully and carefully decorated with so many nice touches and lovely art work which we all really appreciated. There is an amazing sculpture above the main window in the great room and each room is so attractive with its own unique personality. The security guard, Angel, is our new friend and we brought him meals and enjoyed teaching him the days of the week in English. After this experience, we only want to return here as it hasn't even been 24 hours since we've been back home and we are missing it already! You will not be disappointed if you rent this spacious home - it is a treasure. Thank-you, Mark!

Another wonderful visit to Playa Dorada!
Another wonderful visit to Playa Dorada!
This was our 3rd visit to Playa Dorada and this is the only place we will ever stay in when we visit Rocky Point. Mark is a fantastic host, the house is comfortable and spacious and well equip. The views and sunsets are spectacular and the dolphins always make their daily visit. We have swam in a lot of sea's all over the world but I have to say that the water in the Sea of Cortez this past September was just perfect! Thanks again Mark!

Beautiful home, beautiful beach
Beautiful home, beautiful beach
This is a beautiful home on a wonderful beach, amazing sunsets!! Very well equipped house. Furnishings, bed linens and pillows were very nice quality. Microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, bbq, all available for our use. We had the entire beach to ourselves as there were no other vacationers in any of the houses. Angel, the security guard was a very sweet young man, we actually had him over for dinner one night. Saw dolphins playing in the ocean every day. I would highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to be away from the crowds for a relaxing beach vacation. The only thing I would add to the house is a new broom, dustpan and a mop so that we could have cleaned up a little better when it was time to leave our little piece of temporary heaven.

This was my second stay at this house and once again, it was great. There were 6 of us on a girls trip to celebrate a birthday. Everyone loved the private spaces, the central kitchen that 4 could work in a once, and the close access to the beach. It was chilly and we could simply watch the ocean out the windows, open the doors from the front bedrooms, or sit in the sun in the anchored chairs just off the porch. Great shelling--we found nearly 20 sand dollars! Yippee!
