About the property

Private House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, with 2 pools, Lazy River at Resort

Your own home and all the Mayan benefits! This beautiful Spanish Villa is located in a private gated residential community situated within the Mayan Palace Resort property. This private home overlooks a protected estuary / wildlife sanctuary where we supply free kayaks to enjoy this amazing waterway. No tides just calm safe water. You have all the benefits of a private home combined with all the amenities of the Grand Mayan Palace Resort including the Lazy River and numerous pools at the newly completed Grand Mayan and Mayan Resort section and signature Jack Nicholas golf course. The Mayan Palace has released a residential development of privately owned homes in its prestigious Mayan Group of Resorts, Puerto Penasco. The level of quality in this development is just as we had hoped for, with U.S. standard building codes, drinkable tap water, paved streets, lights and curbs. The feel of the house is very warm and welcoming, with large travertine stone tiles, open floor plan and high ceilings. You will love the old world charm of the professionally decorated home and furnishings with a Spanish / Santa Fe feel.


*****YOUR STAY AT OUR HOME INCLUDES ACCESS AND USE OF ALL THE MAYAN PALACE RESORT FACILITIES!! - daily resort activities for adults & children, indoor and outdoor pools, computer and Internet access room, tennis, secluded private beach, restaurants and bars (inside & beach front), Fitness Center and Health Spa. Guests also have access to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Peninsula golf course with a special preffered rate that includes green fees, cart and GPS. Book it in for a spectacular 18 holes of golf that you won’t soon forget with 7 holes along the Sea Of Cortez. The Mayan Palace Resort is beautiful and has the best beaches on the Sea of Cortez - Mile's of untouched sand and no vendors, calm and relaxing - no one there to bug you. By far the best beaches in all of Puerto Penasco.


Just a 20 mile drive to downtown Rocky Point that offers shopping, local fresh seafood market, local entertainment, cinema and marina. Only 4 miles from the new Mar de Cortes International airport.


We have 2 private pools in the back yard (unheated). The splash pool and Jacuzzi is on the side of the house and the large swimming pool overlooks the estuary at the back of the home. The decking goes all around the house and pools. There is also a large roof top Sky Terrace with wet bar and fireplace. It is amazing to sit up here for those spectacular Sea of Cortez Sunsets and mountain views. At night (because there is no light pollution) the show you get from the stars is unbelievable – Meteor showers, satellites, constellations and the Milky Way all show themselves with grandeur. We love to sit in the back yard with a cold beverage on those hot sunny days. We have the house professionaly decorated and furnished in classic items that reflect the culture of the area and the comforts of home. Flat screen TVs, satellite TV (no guarantee that this is always working - we keep a large supply of DVD movies as well), stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances and Spanish colonial furniture. This is a great location to unwind and spend quality time with the family, explore the surrounding nature and estuary / waterways within the wildlife sanctuary. The house offers many places to relax, including the roof top Sky Terrace.


Just a few minutes’ drive away is the Mayan Palace Resort that offers first class dinning, pool bar and restaurants, full service spa and gym facility, tennis courts, large outdoor pools and an indoor heated pool. But best of all is the pristine untouched beaches that stretch for miles in either direction.


Your perfect holiday wouldn't be complete without booking a T-Time at the signature Peninsula Jack Nicklaus golf course that boasts 7 of the 18 holes along the beautiful Sea of Cortez.


Wading along the estuary as the tide pulls us along, shelling, fishing, swimming and just enjoying the quiet that comes from having a private gated community off the beaten path.

If you are looking for unimaginable stars at night and the tranquility of a small community away from it all - you have found our little paradise. We hope you will enjoy this home as much as we do! Your own free Eco tours abound in this nature’s paradise! Our home has kayaks for use in the estuary and waterways.

Our home and community is at the Mayan Palace Resort – 20 miles from the town of Puerto Penasco. We require minimum 3 night bookings.

About Shauna Rowell and Robyn Ring

What can I say! We love to golf, we love the water, and we love the secluded beaches of the Mayan Palace. We've have got it all in this private house overlooking the estuary and waterways of the nature reserve. Because we are a private gated community within the Mayan Palace Resort - We can use all the Mayan Palace facilities including their outdoor and indoor pools, tennis courts, spa, gym, pool bars and their fantastic restaurants. Sometimes we go into town to buy our own fresh seafood and cook it up back at our home. We love having the space that a condo can't give you and the tranquility of being away from the lights and sounds of the city.

Shauna Rowell and Robyn Ring purchased this house in 2009

Why Shauna Rowell and Robyn Ring chose Sonora

We love to fish, play in the sand and have family get together's for the Holidays. This house holds everyone, and has lots of room to move around. Best of all we love to get a way form it all and this is the place to do it. We are 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Penasco nestled in our quiet community. We just came back from our trip over new years and have always felt very safe and relaxed both at the Mayan Palace resort and our trips into town. The local people are always friendly and helpful Our private gated community offers 24 hour security and is within the Mayan Palace Resort. We have never had any worries!

What makes this house unique

You will not get the space and room from any other rental in the area. You will not get drinkable tap water and American standards community. For fun, we get to walk the beach in our own little world where you feel like you are the only one who has ever walked here before. The shelling is wondrous, and unique because of the way the ocean tides bring in life to the estuary’s tidal pools. We can fish near our house and catch supper; we can dive for clams and cook them up at our home. This is a new and better way to holiday. Private and secluded home to unwind and spend quality family time - then if you want a little action you can head to the resort and partake in daily resort activities for adults & children, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, secluded private beaches, restaurants and bars, Fitness Center and Health Spa. You also have access to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Peninsula golf course. You can't beat it! the best of both worlds.

The best place for sea shells is to drive out past the golf course as far as you can go and walk into the secluded beach area. The size and sheer number of shells are mind blowing; some are big enough to be used for soup bowls!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great holiday with our family at this home, well looked after and super clean. Two pools in the backyard was a bonus, kids pool and adult pool. The Mayan Resort is a beautiful place to spend the day then we would come back to the comforts of home, cook our own food according the kids needs, then play cards at the dining table all together. We will be back soon!

The house has a great floor plan, it is new and modern with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and well thought out. Very comfortable, from the beds to the large couch in the main area.It also had a strong wifi connection and satellite TV. The only downside was that the pools in the backyard were not heated, which we already knew about. The good news on that is the condo rights let you use all of the hotel pools. You have to specify this at the hotel reception or they will give you only access to the one hotel. We had a great time and will definitely come back.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Incredibly quiet and tranquil.

Super close to the Mayan Palace.

House stocked with all the utensils you need, all you need is food.

Beautiful roof top sunsets.

Great water pressure and heat from the showers.

Nice washer and dryer which was very convenient.

About 25 minutes into town door to pier.

Been to RP many times and this is where hopefully stay from here on out.

We had an amazing stay at this home. It exceeded our expectations. We vacationed with another couple to check things out & possibly bring our kids back to say - WE WILL RETURN!!

We were excited about the pools at the house, but didn't end up using them at all. The resort was fabulous. It WAS nice to have the privacy of our own home with a full kitchen.

On our trip back to Phoenix we asked each other what we would do differently next time... all 4 of us said nothing! Except maybe pack even lighter.

A beautiful tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and as always it was a pleasant stay. We enjoyed the tranquil and private home. It suited our family well. Having the two pools at the house was very nice and we enjoyed sunsets up on the terrace and on the beach. The resort is a short drive away. There is also a shuttle available. You can't go wrong with this property. It is an absolutely beautiful home. We will definitely be back again soon. Thank you again for opening your home to our family.

Please bring all your own personnel items, including condiments and any specialty kitchen food or spice items. We provide all the basic supplies and kitchen utenciles.

Please do not leave AC running when you are out for the day and most importantly DO NOT LEAVE DOORS OPEN WITH A/C RUNNING!!!! This will result in the a/c units freezing up and they will stop working - you will not have AC for your stay. There are four individual ac units. One in each bedroom and the main living room. Please ensure they are turned off when you are gone from unit and that doors are always shut. Please be considerate of these rules as the energy costs have run in excess of $1000/month.

Thank you and have a wonderful vacation at our Casa-De Cortez
