About Gary Lenz

I bought this beautiful condo to enjoy the warm sun, sea and sand of Rocky Point, Mexico. I am pleased to offer this little piece of paradise to you as my guest. This truly is a little bit of heaven on the beach. I welcome you to share the relaxation and comfort of our home on the beach.

Gary Lenz purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gary Lenz chose Puerto Peñasco

I always dreamed of living on the ocean shore and my dream became a reality when I bought this Las Palomas condo. You will love watching the dolphins play in the ocean right in front of you and viewing the spectacular sunrises and sunsets all from the large wrap around balcony of this ocean front condo. Puerto Penasco is truly a pristine Mexican location with incredible natural beauty.

What makes this condo unique

The friendly people of Puerto Penasco and residents of the Las Palomas Resort; the amenities in the resort, Sunrise and Sunset from the deck. Watching the beach activities and the dolphins play in the water right in front of the balcony deck is a unique experience. Relaxing with a book in a shady spot on the deck as well as total interior comfort welcome you in our condo.

Book tours for snorkeling or diving, whale, dolphin or sea lion watching. The dolphins are always here and follow the boat. Tours to Bird Island are unique offering a glimpse of the different varieties of Pelicans and sea lions.

If you enjoy fishing, a number of excursions are available to experience deep sea fishing. Your catch will be cleaned on the boat ready for dinner when you return home.

Clean, comfy stay at Rocky Point

  • 5 of 5

The process to book this apt was simple. The owner was very communicative and gave us all the information that we needed beforehand so that we could plan for a great vacation. Super comfy beds, stocked kitchen and great patio furniture to enjoy panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez. Would highly recommend this property for a stress-buster vacation.

Wonderful condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo with great views. Kitchen well stocked. Perfect place for families and friends to gather. Twin beds were a little too soft, probably geared towards kids and not adults staying in the room. Also needed curtains or something to darken the room more. Overall pleasant stay by all.
