Exceptional! 5/5 -
(11 traveler reviews)

average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

My family and I really really loved staying here. The house is beautiful, clean, and very well equipped with things for us to use while we were there. There were very few people on the beach which made it so nice and peaceful. The view of the stars at night is something else, it's out of this world beautiful! We lost track of how many shooting stars we saw! We would definitely come back and vacation here again.

The Whole Package!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many, many homes on the beaches south of Rocky Point, but this is now our new favorite!! A quiet beach, every possible amenity, helpful caretaker, beautiful decor, and a different balcony for each sunset happy hour. The drive from Rocky Point is rather nice as you drive by asparagus fields and olive orchards. As stated in previous reviews, the photos don't do the house justice. Dan was very helpful and the directions and information provided ahead of time were accurate. Adolpho is friendly and knowledgeable. From kites and kayaks, to board games and beach towels, the house is fully stocked. We are looking forward to returning!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The home, the area, the hospitality all are magnificent. Our group of 7 adults and 1 child had an absolute blast for a full week. The house comes with everything that you need to enjoy your stay, beach time, cook, etc...

Getting to the house is very simple, and quite honestly, not much farther than spots in Puerto Penasco. The beach is gorgeous, and the solitude is stunning.

We will return again indeed!

Have the beach all to yourself!

  • 5 of 5

This house is on a very secluded but safe beach. At high tide, the water is steps away. It's one of the nicest rental beach homes you'll find in Sonora. Very well equipped with comfortable beds and nice linens. Ask the guard how you can get in touch with Ceci. She's a local woman who will cook for you and make you the best chicken enchiladas ever! We had a great time!

Excellent for a beach vacation away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a Thanksgiving retreat and it was perfect for our family of 10 (8 children aged 14 and under). I wish I could have taken a picture of my kids’ faces as they entered the home and saw the beautiful view from the main room. The excitement matched Christmas morning.

The home is no longer brand new, but was well built and has been well maintained. It is about what would be expected with a remote vacation home that probably only gets stayed in one week or so out of a typical month. It is pure luxury comparted to the areas you drive through getting to it. The home as a whole is quite well equipped. We showed up with only our personal items and groceries and didn’t feel like we were missing anything the whole time we were there. The home has stand definition Direct TV and Internet that averaged about 3Mbps down and 256kbps up. It slowed down considerably at night when others in the area were using it, but wasn’t bad at all considering the location. ATV use appeared to be very popular among a lot of the vacationers in this development, but they were pretty courteous and we never got annoyed by them.

If you want to eat regularly in restaurants and/or have others provide you with entertainment then this probably is the place you want to stay. The location is very remote. It is located in a small resort HOA (about 25 homes) at the end of a 6-mile rather wash-boardish dirt road. It generally took us about 80-90 minutes each way to drive (well above posted speed limits) to the nearest stores and restaurants in either Rocky Point or Caborca. There are local police and military checkpoints going each way, but this actually increased my comfort level. They are well-armed, but very courteous.

I actually really liked the remoteness. There were no vendors and we were often the only ones on the beach. My kids could go out and play by themselves without any worries. The beaches are covered with far more shells and whale bones that you would ever find in Rocky Point. The water deepens very gradually and was perfect for those still learning to swim. The kids caught a few hermit crabs and saw a few fish, but if you want to dive or snorkel then take a short 45 minute drive to Puerto Lobos about 45 south where the sea life is absolutely stunning.

Overall, we really enjoyed our trip. I would not hesitate renting this home again. The owners were responsive and very accommodating.
