Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 9 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Villa Venezia is your Mexico vacation paradise. Located on Playa Encanto in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. Villa Venezia has so many luxurious amenities...you’ll never have to leave the beach!

Perfect for large groups of people; Villa Venezia can comfortably accommodate up to 18 guests.

Villa Venezia is a gated beach-front compound with a courtyard. It consists of a 4-bedroom beach-front home and a rear 2-bedroom guest unit. We will only rent to one group at a time.

The beach-front house is a 3,800 sq. ft. split unit with two fully functional kitchens, 2 living/dining spaces downstairs, 6 full bathrooms, and 4 bedrooms upstairs, two of which are master suites. The master bedrooms have beach views, King sized beds, fireplaces, large walk-in closets and a shared balcony that stretches across the width of the house. The expansive balcony provides phenomenal views of the Sea of Cortez and the gorgeous sandy beaches that encompass it. The other two bedrooms have two Queen beds each, walk-in closets and private bathrooms. All bedrooms and living spaces have air-conditioning & heat. Winding staircases on the balcony lead you to a margarita roof deck to enjoy yet more amazing views. Windows line both the upper and lower floors allowing the experience of the water and waves to flow into the house, not to mention the wonderful ocean breezes. You can enjoy those in the house by opening up all the windows or just by sitting out on the covered patio. We also have outdoor showers to wash off all that sand.

The rear two-bedroom guest house is 1500 sq. ft. with limited ocean views. It also has a fully functioning kitchen, living/dining space, laundry room (accessible only if entire compound is rented). The master bedroom also has a fireplace, walk-in closet, and a large private balcony with beautiful, (although more limited), ocean views. To get a full glimpse of the tranquil sea, take the winding staircase from the balcony to the Margarita roof deck, one of the best places to sit back and take in a beautiful Mexico sunset.

All living spaces have at least 1 television (video game compatible), a DVD player, satellite, and wi-fi Internet connection (password to be provided)

Located on the Sea of Cortez in the state of Sonora Mexico, and only 10 miles from the small Mexican fishing village of Puerto Penasco, the Playa Encanto beach community offers the tranquility and serenity of a private resort lifestyle with one of the most beautiful and less populated beaches in the area. From the lush sandy beaches, the native wildlife, and the breathtaking sunsets, Playa Encanto offers a virtual paradise to all those who experience her magnificent charm and beauty.

Only a short drive away, are all the amenities you can imagine including day/night cruises, charter boat fishing, golfing, shopping and other water activities. There are many great restaurants to choose from or you can get your own fresh seafood and make home cooked meals. There is a large grocery store right in town plus many fresh markets.

There is a new local airport 25 mins away providing flights from the states starting in November. If you chooose to drive, we are 3-4 hrs from Phoenix/Tuscan and 4-5 hrs from San Diego.

About Frank Montanile

We are a loving Italian family. Both my wife and I were born in Italy (hence the name 'villa venezia') My wife, Clara and I bought this house with our son, Domenick and his family. He has a beautiful wife, Jaime, and two adorable kids. We bought this house as a great place to make memories with our entire family.

Frank Montanile purchased this house in 2006

Why Frank Montanile chose Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point)

We used to use a timeshare to come visit this area (Mayan Palace) and fell in love. One rainy day - with not much to do we decided to take a drive. We stumbled upon this beachfront neighborhood and found this gem just dying for us to rescue it. We now love spending every chance we have with our family in this beach house.

Not only is this a beautiful beach town but the locals are so wonderful and a good majority of the neighbors on our beach are all from Phoenix. We are like little family out here!

What makes this house unique

Aside from all the amenities listed, I have to say what a wonderful place to make memories this is. I recently celebrated my 60th birthday, and we had family fly in from as far as New York. Sisters, brothers, neices, nephews, cousins, babies....there is room for everyone. There is so much privacy to this house but yet so much space to come together and socialize that there is a fit for everyone in every moment of the day. We had over 24 people in the house that week and it never once felt like it was over crowded.

We always love Villa Venezia and this is our 4th or 5th time staying there. Our family enjoys the great accommodations and the quality of the beach right outside our door. We hope to return again and again over the years...this beautiful home is perfect for us!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great comfortable home loved it. Definitely recomended for big groups. Home was clean. Only thing is we were charged a cleaning fee ans still gad to clean it and leave food for the cleaning lady. Yes we do this either way but it was required. But oh well its no big deal. Great place.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Playa Encanto and we loved it. We had a group of 20 and it was perfect. The three two-bedroom, three-bath, well appointed townhomes provided plenty of space and beds for everyone. Easy access to the beach, two spacious patios, plus a margarita roof-top patio. We loved everything about this place.

Perfect for our 3 generation family

  • 5 of 5

June 2017 was our 2nd stay at this property. The owner and his handyman, Vadal, are so easy to work with. It may not be the fanciest place on the beach (close) but it meets all our needs. Three separate living areas for three families. Connecting patio and balcony. New (to us) this year, was a fire pit which the grandkids enjoyed at night while looking at the stars. Ample living space and great for extended families. I like that Frank has phone access to the states and Internet service. This beauty is just right for rough and tumble children. We all had a great time.
