Guestbook comments from the owner

We had never been to Rocky Point before. We found the casita to be clean, cozy and very nice in a quiet, safe community. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything. The bedroom and living room were very comfortable. The mattress in the bedroom was wonderful! We loved your books on Mexican history, nature and culture. Our dogs played safely in your fenced in yard. The neighbors were helpful.

Remarkable, peaceful, beautiful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The casita had everything we could have wanted. The location was wonderful......a 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach......which is a lovely sandy beach at high tide and a walk among fascinating tide pools at low tide. We can't wait to go back again......and after scoping things out, we plan to bring our 2 little dogs w/ us next time. They had lots of info for us to steer us to great restaurants, water and supermarkets.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Quiet honestly, we don't want to leave. This was my first time in Rocky Point and I loved it! The property location was a walk away from the beach which was perfect. The house very clean. The bed was so soft and comfortable. The house was in a gated community, very quiet and just peaceful. We will be returning in the near future. Thank you for sharing your casita with us.

Like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! A great value, very clean and close to the beach. It's at the end of a quiet street in a gated and secure community. There's shopping and restaurants close by and within walking distance. It's a short drive to the main part of town. This was our first trip to Puerto Penasco and won't be our last. The casita will be our home away from home when we go down there which will be often. The place was very clean and well equipped with everything you need to cook or prepare meals. The bathroom, always somewhat of a question mark, was really clean and there was plenty of hot water for showers after going to the beach. Our only complaint was that we had to leave.
