About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4-6, Equipped For Fun Including Ocean Kayak+DISHtv

Want to get away from it all? Rocky Point Bliss is the place for you! Situated 20 minutes away from Rocky Point near the Mayan Palace, Rocky Point Bliss is for adventurous, independent people ready to be self sufficient and enjoy a safe, private, quiet, beautiful place away from the hustle and noise of the town of Rocky Point and the big resorts . Our home is located on the beach, with amazing views and the sounds of the ocean are in your front yard! You really have to experience Rocky Point Bliss and Encanto to appreciate just how over-the-top gorgeous this place is!! This was the model unit so is beautifully designed and decorated with upscale but comfortable furnishings. Gourmet kitchen, laundry room, powder room, elegant dining area, large leather sectional sofa and entertainment center. A glass wall with sliding doors allows views of the ocean and property. Master bedroom has king bed, luxurious ensuite bathroom with jetted tub, spacious shower, large walk-in closet, floor to ceiling sliding door to terrace. 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a twin over full bunk bed, plus ensuite bathroom with large shower and spacious closet. Tvs in living room, both bedrooms. Terrace has dining table, lounge chairs, wet bar. Ceiling fans, ac/heat, plenty of windows!

This place is live-in ready, with a fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, plenty of linens for beds and baths, and a retreat-like elegance which promotes rapid stress relief! The property grounds are beautifully kept, with several swimming pools, hot tubs, gas grills, poolside dining and lounging. The lobby is reminiscent of a hotel entry, with beautiful furnishings and art work. Parking is covered and secure. The beach is pristine, with unbelievable shell collecting and the ability to stroll for miles, encountering tide pools and the occasional great heron. Dolphin sightings are common, and the pelican patrols are delightful. Take the Tandem Ocean Kayak out for a paddle in the calm green waters of the Sea of Cortez. Stop at the Mayan Palace for a bite to eat before the tide goes out. Then watch the sun set from your terrace, guaranteed to be lovely. Star-gazing is equally rewarding here, with frequent shooting stars and halos around the moon. Grab your partner and sit around the gas fire pits to watch the night sky.

Encanto is a private condo complex with no bar, restaurant, stores, or maid service. You must be able to buy or bring food or be prepared to eat at the Mayan Palace restaurants or drive into town. The drive into Puerto Penasco is easy and only takes about 15-20 minutes. You can re-stock supplies at Sams Club or one of the many smaller markets around town. Mayan Palace has a restaurant and a poolside bar/restaurant , but there are also many to choose from in Puerto Penasco, aka Rocky Point. You can take a fishing excursion, visit CEDO House, and stroll through Old Port. Mayan Palace has a day spa (Brio) and a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Or venture a little further out and take a trip to El Pinacate Biosfera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Encanto's staff is wonderful, with many long-term employees who speak English and are always willing to help. The office manager speaks English fluently and is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Luna Blanca, the building next door, shares amenities with residents and visitors of Encanto, so you have access to the exercise room and more pools and hot tubs. A tennis court rounds out the activity options. Encanto has its own water purification system, so feel secure swimming and showering. We have a Berkey water purification system in the unit, so no need to buy bottled drinking water.

Encanto has only 34 units, with Rocky Point Bliss located at 204. You can take the elevators or the stairs. From the terrace, you can easily keep an eye on the kids at the pool, or call out your steak order to the grill chef in your party. The panoramic views are amazing, from sunrise to sunset and every moment in between.

About Mary Delduca

I have the good fortune of living in Flagstaff, AZ with my sons, dog, and many friends. It's only 6 hours to Rocky Point Bliss, and I have gone many times by myself as a retreat from work and busy-ness. We have so many fond memories of playing on the beach, strolling thru Old Port, and watching the sun set from the terrace.

The next time you'd like a mountain get-away, consider a visit to Conifer House Inn, located in the sweetest spot in Flagstaff, AZ. The Inn is built in the Craftsman style with 4 unique guest rooms, each with luxurious ensuite bathroom and private entrance to a central courtyard. Surrounded by aspens and spruce, a meadow, and the Rio de Flag, Conifer House Inn is the perfect place to come back to after a day of exploring local trails and downtown eateries.

Mary Delduca purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mary Delduca chose Sonora

Of all the properties in Puerto Penasco, Encanto exudes security, tranquility, and luxury. I knew I would feel safe here, by myself or with my children, without having to manage too many details. The building and grounds are always beautifully maintained, and the staff are geniuses at fixing any problem that arises. Mexico is a magnificent country with very warm, friendly people. Rocky Point is known to Arizonans and Californians as a seaside haven. Encanto and the Mayan area are further known as the best place to escape the noise and crowds of Sandy Beach and Las Conchas. I know only a few words in Spanish, and that has never hampered me from enjoying my time spent here or in town.

What makes this condo unique

From the moment you pass through the entry gate, you will be wowed by the quality and spaciousness of Encanto. Rocky Point Bliss was the model unit for this development. All the best finishes and enhancements went into this unit, and it is truly luxurious without feeling pretentious, so you can relax and feel at home. I have outfitted it with as many comforts and amenities as possible, because it's my home too!! My sons love to bring friends along, spend the mornings and afternoons outside and watch movies or play games indoors at mid-day. We grill up some burgers or fish for dinner and later fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean. Life feels simpler here, and I never fail to relax and rejuvenate, even if I'm doing some work via the internet. My unit comes with the use of an Ocean Kayak, 2 seater, no experience required!!

Perfect family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property in July 2017 and absolutely loved it! We traveled from Phoenix and arrived without any problems. There was a small problem with the A/C the day before we arrived and were informed of this, but it was promptly fixed just as we arrived. Any other problem or question during our stay was quickly resolved by Mary. The view of the pools and ocean was perfect from inside the condo. Large space with very nice amenities. The drive into town is about 20 min, so it was great to have a nice kitchen to cook most meals. We went into town a few times to shop and eat, but could have easily stayed on the property the whole time! Amazing pools and beach! Best time for the beach was in the afternoon when the tide was back and there was more sandy beach open. Seashells as far as you could see! Even found a few sand dollars. The pictures here are spot on and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay during our trip. Very comfortable, quiet and relaxing! We will be trying to make this a yearly trip for our family!

Wonderful place! Pros and Cons

  • 4 of 5

PROS: Clean, nice and comfortable condo in a secluded, quiet area. Beautiful balcony to watch the sunrise and sunset from. There is also a sink and counter top on the balcony which is awesome for rinsing beach stuff or shells!! Perfect for a family vacation with little ones - lots of sea shells and soft sand! The beaches were clean and had hardly any people on them, unlike Sandy Beach. The pools are clean and never too crowded. The condo comes with the basics as far as the kitchen goes. Make sure to check out the spare closet as it is packed with stuff for the beach! The DISH tv was actually a nice plus for your down time. It was a relief to walk into the condo after a long day in town and have the comforts of modern living. The wifi is great and works well inside the condo. Having a washer and dryer that worked great was soooo nice too! The ocean water couldn't have been more perfect! It was so warm and crystal clear so far out. No jellyfish while we were there but did see two string rays. Bring goggles to swim around the corral to see the fish!! Very cool! The staff is very helpful and accomodating!

CONS: It is actually a very long and slow drive into actual Rocky Point if you follow the speed limit. There is NO food or services anywhere close by other than The Grand Mayan (which is actually a really cool place so check it out at least once) which is about a ten minute drive. You will spend a fortune if you plan on eating all of your meals there so unless you want to drive to town every day for every meal, you will need to pack a BUNCH of food. This is stated in the description so we knew what to expect but I didn't realize how inconvenient it really would be.... eating in Mexico is half the fun so it was kind of a bummer to eat so many home made meals because we didn't want to drive the long drive to town. Pack oil or non stick cooking spray and any spices and condiments you may want other than salt and pepper. You will also need dishwasher soap if you don't want to hand wash everything. We ran into one problem while we were there and that was after running the master shower or bathtub, we could start smelling the sewer and the whole master bedroom smelt bad. That was solved by plugging the bathtub drain and putting a garbage can on top of the shower drain when we were done showering each time which wasn't that big of a deal. The mosquitos were terrible most of the time so if there's one thing you don't want to forget, let it be the bug spray

Owner's Response: Ann, thank you for your detailed response. I really appreciate you pointing out that it's a trip to get back into town. For myself, there are very few restaurants I care to visit in town, and I much prefer making my own meals. But that's not for everyone, of course. Regarding the other problems you coped with so graciously and ingeniously: We find that everything "walks away" whether it's shampoo, paper products or cleaning products - it's hard to say exactly what happens to it but we are probably going to install a locked cabinet which guests can access if needed. We can monitor how quickly things run out and hopefully that will make life easier! The bad smell is a function of the winds and weather conditions. You did the right thing. I've been down there many times with no problem at all, then it happens. If it was the US, the problem would be resolved quickly. But it's Mexico, and we have to accept that's just the way it is! I'm glad you didn't let these small annoyances detract from your visit! Best, Mary and Shelby
