About the property

Steps from the beach, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 4.

Are you the kind of person that likes things clean, modern and well cared for? If the answer is yes, then this is the rental home for you. Take a moment to read our wonderful reviews - you won't be disappointed!

Casita Cariño was designed to be your oasis! Everything is new, modern and kept in impeccable condition. It is decorated in the colors of the sun, sand and sea. It is perfect for one or two couples or a small family.

Casita Carino is quiet, calm, serene and literally just steps away from the beach. It's terraces are some of the closest to the water and beach in all of Las Conchas. When the windows are open in the Casita, the sound of the ocean fills the home.

The tides here in Rocky Point fluctuate greatly depending upon the moon cycle and time of year. During a very high tide, the water comes right up to the sea wall and for a couple of hours, you feel like you are standing on the back of a ship looking out at sea. During an extremely low tide, you can walk out a couple of hundred feet to explore the coral reefs. Most days, the tides fall somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.

Casita Carino is located in Section 9 of Las Conchas which has sandy beaches instead of the rocky beaches that Rocky Point is known for. Las Conchas is a guard gated community that has 24 hour security and there is only one road in and out.

The cabinets and furniture were locally made which gives the house a real Mexican feel.

There are 2 bedrooms. Each has a queen size memory foam mattress, high quality bedding, ceiling fan, reading lights and an extra blanket. One bedroom is located at the front of the Casita and has ocean views with sliding glass doors to the upper terrace. The other bedroom is at the back of the home and has a skylight with a shade so you can adjust the amount of light that comes in. Each bedroom has it's own full size bathroom with shower and separate toilet room. There is also an Armoire with wooden hangers in each bathroom. Bath towels, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soaps are provided.

The great room has several skylights and has a very airy and open feeling. The sitting area has a sectional sofa and a 50 inch flat screen TV with DirecTV. There is a dining table with seating for four. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, coffee makers (traditional filter type and a Keurig), blender, toaster and Brita water pitcher.

There are two beachfront terrace levels that have gorgeous views of the sea. The upper terrace has a great amount of shade, a propane BBQ, chaise lounges, chairs and an outdoor dining table. There is also a lower terrace that has a private beach area where you can relax in the sand and your children can play safely while still being on the property. The lower terrace has a fire pit, Adirondack chairs and an outdoor shower. While out on the terraces, you will be treated to views of Rocky Point's spectacular sunsets! At night, the show of stars in the sky is absolutely breathtaking!

We have also added all the little details that will make this feel like your home away from home.

These include:

~A 50 inch Flat Screen TV with DirecTV. Includes the NFL Sunday Ticket

~HBO, Showtime and the Starz movie channels


~Central AC and heat

~Ceiling fans throughout the Casita

~High quality bedding

~Memory foam mattresses

~Reading lights in each bedroom

~Extra blankets

~Skylights throughout the Casita

~Propane BBQ with extra tank

~Outdoor shower

~Outdoor dining table

~Beach chairs

~An assortment of adult and children's games

~Smoke detector and fire extinguisher for your safety

~Brita water pitcher with cold water for your arrival

~Bathroom towels, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap.

~A house phone with a US number. All calls to and from the US are free.

Upon your arrival, FRESH LIMES AND SALT on the counter top await your cold margaritas and beer!

This house is perfect for the discriminating renter and is lovingly cared for by me. It is kept in impeccable condition so every guest has the same wonderful experience. I pride myself on giving you a wonderful customer service experience and I'm always available to answer any questions.

If you are the kind of person who likes things clean, fresh and modern, this is the rental home for you!

In addition to this beautiful home, we have Casa Ciao available on VRBO (listing #495720). This gorgeous home is also newly renovated and perfect for up to six people. If Casita Carino is already booked for the nights you desire, please take a look at Casa Ciao. You can also book both homes for parties up to 10.

About Alana

Our beach front home is located on the sandy beaches of Las Conchas. Our section of beach (section 9) has no rocks and is all sand. This is the section where you want to be!

We (Rick and Alana) wanted to create a rental home that we would enjoy staying in. Every item in the house from the paint to the decorations was lovingly chosen to reflect the serenity and peace we wanted to create.

We hope you love this home as much as we loved creating it for you!

Alana purchased this house in 1998

Why Alana chose Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point)

Start off with a great location (our home is located on a very quiet section of beach that is all sand and has no rocks. At low tide, you can walk out to the reefs and explore the sea life), add in a brand new house decorated in the colors of the sand and sky and you have a peacefully, calm, serene retreat perfect for fun and relaxation. At night, the sunsets and stars are magnificent!

What makes this house unique

-Gorgeous vaulted ceiling in the main room

-50 inch Flat Screen TV, Satellite DirecTV with NFL Sunday Ticket

-Outdoor Fire Pit

My family and I were booked for this house in JUNE and owners canceled our trip 5 days before we were supposed to go, but only because I emailed to check in! They did refund our money, but had we canceled on them they would have kept it. We still feel like we got a crappy deal! Should have been more and a free one night would have never cut it. Who can trust after that? Too bad because my family of 5 was off school and work looking forward to the beach just to be sadly disappointed right before we went! I haven't booked through VRBO since for this was such a horrible experience!

Owner's Response: Hi Erica, This was a horrible situation and we couldn't be sorrier that it happened! Somehow, the VRBO system allowed us to double-book the home. This has never happened to us before and we deeply, deeply apologize. We relied on the VRBO calendar to keep track of the bookings and the system allowed us to book two guests for the same dates. As soon as we where notified of the problem, we immediately issued you a full refund. I offered and was happily willing to get on the phone and find you another place to stay. I understand that you declined because you wanted to stay at our property but it was the best that I could do given the situation and I really wanted to do whatever I could to make it right. I also offered you a free night if you were willing to come back and give us another chance. Once again, we are truly sorry for the experience you had in reserving our home through VRBO. We have now put our own procedure in place to make sure this never happens again! Wishing you and your family all the best, Rick & Alana

Another wonderful stay at Casita Carino

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year that our whole family went to Rocky Point for Thanksgiving and while they moved further up the road we stayed put because we really like it.

The casita was just as we remembered, clean, neat, orderly, quiet and you cannot get closer to the beach. When some friends and family stopped by there was always the same comments:

* I see why you want to stay here

* I can't believe how clean the place is!

* Love the beach.

We have no reservations in recommending this's everything you see in the pictures.

Our only concern about future years is that we are starting to have some challenges (related to health conditions) with the steps to and from the street. This is not a wheel chair accessible place (as they point out in the listing). However, the support staff that are nearby are happy to help get your baggage in and out (and Alana provides their phone numbers).

Alana is absolutely superb at customer service. They provide really fast response to emails and certainly understand how to generate repeat business.

Worry free vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't believe how beautiful and amazing our stay was at Casita Carino. The views from the patio are amazing and the beach is great. The little things make a huge difference like the beach chairs, board games, water filtration, and how quickly Alana responded to any questions. We will definitely be staying again.

Best home we've EVER rented in 30 years of Rocky Point visits

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been visiting Rocky Point (and Las Conchas in particular) for 30 years. This is the nicest home we've ever been in. My friend and I couldn't stop talking about nice it was, how clean, how little wear and tear there is, what beautiful small touches there are everywhere. When you come for a beach weekend, you're usually expecting to downgrade your lifestyle a bit. Almost everything in this house (towels, furnishings, patio, appliances) was nicer than my house. I wouldn't be comfortable bringing kids I don't think, though they have a cupboard full of games and one full of beach toys. Another thing that usually doesn't work very well in beach rentals is the AC... not at this house! It blows COLD when you want it to. We can't wait to return. The only drawback for us was the steps, but we didn't go to town all that much. And bless them, the caretakers were fantastic about helping us unload/load our car- which we were happy to tip well for.
