Wonderful beach villa!!
This is a wonderful beach vacation home. Right on the most beautiful beach we have been on! Beautiful sunsets, sea shells, sand dollars, dolphins....soft sandy beach you can walk miles on!
The villa was very comfortable, neat, and clean. Just a wonderful place!
The only thing was there was no soap. Normally we would have run to the store and picked some up, but this location is about a 20 minute drive from Puerto Penasco and stores! Luckily, we have friends who have a beach house only a short distance down the beach and they gave us a couple of bars of soap. We did have to purchase dish soap and clean sponges for the kitchen, but that we were able to do the next day when we went into town so no big deal.
I would suggest soaking shower heads with vinegar to get rid of the calcium buildup so they flow a little better. I know this is difficult to maintain in areas close to the ocean, but it is just a suggestion. The patio door is very difficult to open and shut.
Outside of these few little things, we had a wonderful stay in this home and would definitely go back again! Loved it there!
Family friendly Villa in the best beach in Rocky Point
First, getting to the beach seems a lot harder than it is, if you follow the instructions provided, you will find the location. However, I used google maps to find the Playa Encanto Guardhouse in Rocky Point Mexico. It will take you directly to where you need to go. Once you arrive the guards will give you further instructions to get to the Villa. It is super easy!
We had a small hiccup, after checking in, we left our belongings at the Villa and headed to town to get groceries and a quick bite to eat. Upon return to the Villa, we were locked out. The gentleman that checked us in, accidentally just gave us one key, two were needed to unlock the door (top and bottom lock are different).
At that point, we did not have WiFi and was very difficult to connect with the property manager. However, we drove to the Guard-tower and found cell phone service. After connecting with the property manager, he worked to ensure that a staff drove to the house to give us the proper keys. It was a bit frustrating waiting to get back in, specially because we waiter over 2 hours. We lost some quality vacation/beach time. However, In return for the hiccup we were allowed to check out at a later time which definitely made up!.
The Villa itself is very cute, the rooms are clean, and there are plenty of towels to use. The Kitchen has (mostly) everything you need to cook a meal AND there is a grill in the back. We just bought charcoal and grilled steaks. There are multiple grocery stores in town, but it they are about a 15 minute drive. If you are like me and likes to be away from crowds and just relax, get yourself some groceries/drinks and make your own meals. Everything else you need is at the beach.
The beach itself is beautiful! Best I have seen in Rocky Point. There are sea shells everywhere of every size and every shape. I wish I could share a picture!
Some important things to know:
- Low water pressure in showers, specially if taking showers all at the same time.
- Make sure you figure out WiFi with staff before they leave.
- The beach was mostly all ours during our stay, it was very private.
- The water is beautiful and warm.
- Bring your own movies if you have kids!
- Balcony great star watching at night
- Loved It and will return!
After we checked out, we left a passport in the Villa, but once we connected with the property manager, he had someone at the house right away to unlock the villa. Human error on both our side
Perfect for a small family!
So much fun! Beautiful beach, beautiful house, very comfortable and loved that they had sand toys for the kids. Would for sure recommend!
1st time in Rocky Point.
Checking in was simple. We met a representative of the property manager who escorted us to the Villa. There is a garage for the Villa, however, it is not for the use of the renter.
The Villa itself appeared clean, however, it is dated and is well deserving of a few upgrades.
The Villa is air conditioned and it does work well.
We did not utilize the kitchen appliances, except for the refrigerator which did work well. The Villa comes with standard kitchen utensils, pots, pans and drinking cups.
There was hot water from the kitchen sink, however, there was no hot water in the showers. The water pressure from the shower heads and all of the facets was low.
There is no cable/satellite television, nor is there WiFi. There is a DVD player hooked up to a small (~20-25 inch) Samsung Smart Television. The property manager(s) were receptive to our concerns about the lack of WiFi, however, they were not able to resolve the issue.
We did note cockroaches in the "courtyard", however, we did not encounter any in the Villa itself.
The best part of the Villa is the view of the beach and ocean. It is simply amazing.
Overall, this Villa is best utilized as a place to rest your head at night after a full day on the beach or doing other activities. If the intent is to spend any significant amount of time indoors then this is not the place for you.
The house was amazing, very spacious just beautiful
Couldn't be more pleased with the location. We seen dolphins, and the shells, oh the shells. This is definitely the place to go if you want to de-stress, relax and unplug. We will be coming here instead of San Diego. The weather was just amazing.
Wonderful Place to Stay
My family stayed at this vacation rental for 7 nights over Spring Break. We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for us. It is nicely appointed and very comfortable. It's amazing to stay right on the beach. Luis and his staff are helpful and accommodating. They went above and beyond to meet our needs. I can't wait to go back!
Prefer to be right in Old Port? Don't need so much room? Check out Milagros #2 at Our Property Manager can be reached at 602-449-0985
