Hi. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and learn a little something about us and our beautiful, luxury rental homes. We (Rick and Alana) have three rental properties in Las Conchas - Casa Ciao, Casita Carino and Villa Serena. We have stayed in many rental homes during our travels where an appliance or two didn't work, light bulbs were out, the home felt old and dated, and things were just not clean. We decided that we wanted our rental homes to be different and to be the kind of homes that were well taken care of. Homes in which you could feel the pride of ownership and in which every guest has the same wonderful experience. We tried to think of all the little details and special touches that you may want or need to make it your home away from home. It is our top priority to make your experience and vacation as wonderful as possible. We hope you love this home as much as we loved creating it for you!
Alana purchased this House in 2015
Why Alana chose Las Conchas
There are two main areas to stay in Rocky Point. Las Conchas and Sandy Beach. Las Conchas is a residential, guard gated community with 24 hour security. Sandy beach is an area that has a dozen or so high rise condominiums and hotels. Most have a bar and restaurant on site but the trade off is that it can be so noisy and crowded that you have no personal space from the other guests and a long walk and/or elevator ride to your room. It all depends upon what type of experience you are looking for. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing spot where you have the beach almost all to yourself and your food, drinks and bathroom are just a set of stairs away, then Casa Ciao is a great choice for you. Casa Ciao is a beach front home that is located on the sandy beaches of section 9 in Las Conchas. Many beaches in Rocky Point have rocky beaches instead of sandy ones. While these beaches are beautiful in their own right, all the rocks make it somewhat difficult if you like to play and swim in the water. In addition to the sandy beaches, section 9 has the greatest tide fluctuation in all of Las Conchas. During the very highest of tides, the sea comes right up to the terrace wall and you feel like you are standing on the back of ship. If it is a windy day, water splashes over the lower terrace wall giving you quite a show. During the lowest tides, you can walk out to the coral reefs and explore the sea life. Casa Ciao is also located very close to the estuary which is a wonderful place to bird watch, look for shells, fish and just explore. Casa Ciao is clean, modern and tranquil. It is kept in impeccable condition. Every item in the home was carefully chosen to reflect the peace and serenity we wanted to create. It is even decorated in the colors of the sand, sun and sea. Casa Ciao has it all! Whether you prefer to bask in the sun, play in the sand or swim in the sea, this is the place for you.

Best in Rocky Point!
We love this property! This was our second time staying here and we love it! Our favorite place to stay in while in Rocky Point! Everything was perfect! Modern home with everything you need, beautiful views and a sandy beach. 5 stars!
We loved our stay in Casa Ciao. The view is spectacular; when the tide is in, the Sea of Cortez comes right up to the patio. This part of the beach is not rocky at all – pure sand out for a ¼ mile or more. The plumbing was top-notch and worked perfectly, as did the screen doors (never a given in Rocky Point, even at the higher-end properties). The place was immaculate, the beds were comfy, the TV worked great, and there is awesome beach gear in a little closet off the patio (floats and chairs and some cool toys if you have kids). I could go on, but I will leave it at this: we have been to Rocky Point many times over the past 20+ years and this is one of our favorite stays and certainly the best run property (thank you Alana and Rick!), and we hope to return again and again.
Exceeded all expectations
Simply put, everything about this vacation home exceeded our expectations. Alana is an excellent communicator and gracious host. We will definitely be back!
I cannot say enough good things about this property! It’s gorgeous, spotless, and Alana may be the best property owner I’ve worked with. She was super-responsive, thoughtful, kind. Our arrival “surprise” could not have been more
appreciated. The home itself is absolutely beautiful - the patio is just lovely. There are so many different areas to hang out outdoors! The beach is sandy which is perfect for swimming and wading. We are already planning our return trip! Thank you, Alana! :-)
Absolutely Stunning Place!
Photos don't often accurately portray a place, but what you see online is indeed what you'll get with this property. The location is absolutely perfect--sandy beaches, quiet, and RIGHT on the water. The house was immaculate and equipped with anything you might need. Alana was very attentive--sending information immediately after I made the reservation and e-mailing me during our stay to be sure everything was okay.
Alana and Rick clearly care about their rentals. I hope if you choose to rent from them that you will reciprocate the level of appreciation and leave everything in great shape.
The location is perfect if you are looking for a quiet, tranquil getaway. If you're wanting to party, this isn't the area for you. Look for something in the northern parts of Puerto Penasco.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Ashley LOL! We are so glad to hear that you loved Casa Ciao and could feel the love. Nothing makes us happier than hearing that our guests felt like one of our rentals was their home away from home. We hope to see you again soon.
Alana and Rick
This place is perfect
I have stayed here 4 times now and will stay no where else. Alana and Rick offer a home away from home that is on the beach.. this place is wonderful.
