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 and Shelby

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 and Shelby purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mary and Shelby chose Rocky Point

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!!

Beautiful beach condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful with amazing infinity pools. The room has a stunning beach view, large glass sliding doors so you can see the ocean from the kitchen as well. Master bathroom is huge with walk in shower and jacuzzi. Beds are very comfortable and fit six people very comfortably. The beach has tons of sea shells on the shore so the waves make a beautiful sound. The pools are not crowded we went after sundown and had the pools all to ourselves. The condo is not within town limits so there’s plenty of privacy and away from loud parties. Our family enjoyed every minute we had at the condo and didn’t even want to go in town. It was very relaxing. Highly recommend for couples and families because there are multiple pools to accommodate all. I hope to return soon!

First time staying here, but definitely not our last! Clean, cozy and everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Puerto Penasca so we were not sure of where to stay, but I'm happy to say this was the perfect place for us! It was quiet with hardly anyone in the pools or at the beach. As this was a getaway just for the two of us, we were in heaven! Not only were the beaches quiet, they ate covered in seashells! I've never seen so many beautiful shells in one place! We wandered the beach every morning finding them. We also body boarded in the small waves and the water is warm and clear!

It's about 25 minute drive to the town where we ate dinner one night and explored, but honestly, we couldn't wait to go back to the condo to relax. The balcony has the best view and we LOVED sleeping and napping with the sliding doors wide open for the breeze, view and sound of the waves. It was rare to hear the occasional person talking. Everyone seems to be very respectful of bedtimes.

The resort next to us (the Mayan Palace) was very impressive! We were able to use the pools and eat at the restaurants, which was much nicer than driving into the town. There is a ton for kids to do there, so we'll definitely take our kids next time!

The condo itself is so nice! It's very clean and beautiful. It's decorated so tastefully and I felt relaxed and right at home the entire time. We watched movies and enjoyed all the different seating areas inside and out. There are 3 bathrooms, so I can see how bigger groups would also love this place.

I can't wait to bring our family and friends back to experience Encanto and this area. Thanks to Mary for being a thorough and wonderful host and for sharing your beautiful place!
