Property description


Playa Encanto is the finest beach in the area. Come stay in our private beach house on beautiful Playa Encanto's pristine sandy beach. Our guard-gated community is safe and our home is solar powered so we use electricity very sparingly but have a complete backup generator for powered AC and heat. Unlike the city, our Water is delivered to us.

Leave email and cell phones behind if you want- although Telcel operates in this part of Mexico and T-Mobile has free text and email here. Visit our home to get away from it all. We don't offer TV or internet but you can purchase internet hours on your smart phone.

This remote haven is perfect for relaxation. No distractions here, no crowds or busy traffic.
It is a romantic getaway for couples and it also provides great quality time for families. No internet or TV .
Two master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
One has two double beds and a queen sofa sleeper and the other has two double beds.
For additional guests the pull out sofa in the great room is a queen size.
Our house sleeps 10, but if you want your own bed - then 6 people fit comfortably.
Sky watching and star gazing are favorite forms of entertainment here.
Our covered patio runs the length of the house. It's the perfect place to sip a cool drink while watching for whales and dolphins or watching pelicans fly in formation and fish.

Step off the patio for a sunrise walk along miles of sandy shoreline. The fresh salty air invigorates the body and soothes the spirit. Awesome sunsets create a perfect ending to sun-filled days boating, snorkeling, fishing, shell collecting or lounging. Wonderful tide pools reveal all types of interesting shells for children and adults alike.

Travel for 10 miles by car to Puerto Penasco for night life and the fish and curio market. Several excellent restaurants are located there
There is an internet cafe, Spanish language classes, fishing , sunset cruises, supermarkets and pharmacies and a variety of craft vendors who love to make deals with visitors to Rocky Point.

At Playa Encanto, a guard-gated neighborhood. ATV's and fireworks are completely prohibited on our beach.

You can’t get closer to the sea than this! Walk out off our Beach Bungalow Patio and you’ll have sand between your toes. Our single family home is one level, with two master bedrooms with en-suite baths, and is easily accessible for those in a wheelchair.

Relax on our fully covered patio. Watch the tides, dolphins, pelicans, sunrises and sunsets. Step out from under the roof and the stars at night seem close enough to touch. That’s how far away this beach community is from the hustle and bustle of the town of Puerto Penasco. But actually, it is only 15 minutes by car.
In our guard-gated community no excessive noise is permitted, and quiet after 10pm. The speed limit is very SLOW. 15 mph. pets must be on leash.
After a day in the sun, enjoy our library of reading materials or play a game of chess or poker around the table.
Everyone is a gourmet chef in our open concept kitchen when cooking up fresh shrimp from the local fishermen. Our great room is the gathering place for dining and enjoying a family get-together, with a sit-up wine bar, dining table overlooking the beach and cathedral ceilings.
Enjoy the solitude after a hard day playing in the salt and sand or exploring tide pools.

Our clients include writers who seek creative solitude and artists who come to paint in the clear light.
Our home is operated by solar power and conserving energy is important to us. We turn off fans and lights to save electricity when not in use. Water is trucked in, too so we do our best not to waste it.
Linens are provided, but please bring BEACH towels from home for the sandy beach.
Your own toiletries are recommended, too. You can buy just about anything in town, but possibly not your favorite brand.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Playa Encanto, Sonora, Mexico:
We purchased this home to get away from it all. With no TV, phones, internet etc., bonding during family time, with no distractions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We travel lightly and bring a cooler of iced drinks along with another cooler of partially prepared frozen meals made at home, so all we have to do is put the meals in the fridge and heat them up after they defrost. That means no unnecessary trips to town for groceries, except if you require for more ice. Of course it's fun to go out for the night and dine in Rocky Point and there are several great restaurants for pizza, Italian, seafood and naturally Mexican food. The refrigerator runs on propane but we like to bring a cooler of ice for cold drinks. Bring lots of drinking water to use preparing food, brushing teeth etc., The water at our house is for flushing toilets and showers but is NOT POTABLE. Ceiling fans are usually enough to sleep on a warm night and don't take too much electricity. Turn them off when not in use. The ocean breeze can be cooling and soothing if you open the window/doors all along the ocean side patio to allow the breeze to flow through the house through the windows on the opposite side of the house.. All windows and doors are screened. In order to run the A/C the generator has to be turned on with one switch. The entire house is Air Conditioned. Instructions are sent once you confirm your reservation.
