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!!

Condo in really good condition, nothing to worry about. Management and service people with great attention.

Just bring your food, drinks and time. Great grills outside, clean pools, perfect match...

We tried Mayan and grand Mayan too much people, pool dirty so we come back to Encanto and enjoy it better. Thanks!!!!

Fantastic getaway...off the grid!!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented Mary's condo for a girl's weekend trip and it was fantastic!! We were not familiar with the area and the directions provided were just a bit confusing to begin with but after a stop at a gas station and a nice lady that offered to guide us in the right direction we finally made it to our destination.

The place looks fairly new and it is clean, the apartment is decorated very modern and we liked that; it was super spacious for 5 of us. The pools were awesome!!!! The access to the pool next door was also great, we ended up grilling one day next to the pool!

The apartments are far from the city so the closest supermarket is about 25 minutes driving so make sure to bring plenty of supplies on your way there as you will not want to leave once you arrive because all you will want to do is get on the pool or the jacuzzi or the beach!

I'm looking forward to a next trip with my family next time! Will definitely try to stay at the same place again!

Owner's Response: Anabel, so sorry you got a bit turned around! For everyone reading this review: These days I figure most people plot a course using their Google Maps or other app. If you're like me and not so good with directions, consider printing your driving route before leaving home. Also, the street signs and names of roads in MX are not prominently displayed. It's best to follow the large English signs which are strategically located at important points on the route once you cross the border. There are only 3 turns to make: a left turn in Sonoyta, the border town; a left at the round - about, which is just as you're entering Puerto Penasco, and the right turn to Mayan Palace and our place, Encanto. However, it warms my heart that you got help from a friendly local. That's Mexico!

A beautiful condo and beach far away from the crowd. Next door a 5 star restaurant at the Mayan Palace Hotel.

Owner's Response: Cynthia, thanks for pointing out that Mayan Palace is right down beach from our place. It's a beautiful resort and the inspiration for Encanto, built by the same company. The food is great and Encanto guests can get a pass to hang out there and use the amenities. Lazy river!

Safe, beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice! We got to the condo and we were floored with the space and views. It had everything you needed, just had to supply your food. Mary was so helpful, she emailed us helpful tips & tricks with proceedures for check in and our stay. We will definitely be coming back, it was amazing. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Location was 40 min away from Puerto Penasco downtown

  • 2 of 5

Condo is nice inside but this place is ideal if you just want to be all alone. We wanted to party and have fun for my moms birthday but Puerto Penasco was very far from the place that going to town was a real drag. Also, your security deposit will be held for at least 8 business days after you depart. It would have been much easier to deal with a hotel. There is also no restaurants or stores around so make sure to bring everything. We were there during the weekend of Mother's Day and there were just us and one other family. If you are looking to be alone in a quite place far from town then this is your place.

Owner's Response: Most people are looking to escape crowds, noise, dust, and commotion. Merima is correct in stating that you may end up staying at a time when there are few other guests or owners around. Judging from most people's reviews, this is usually a good thing! But for some, solitude may not be "it". Also, having driven many many many times from Encanto into town, it's 20 minutes, not 40. At least at the speed I drive :) Lastly, VRBO gives owners 2 options for returning the security deposit: 7 days or 14 days. We have chosen the shorter option. Some folks aren't comfortable being on their own, perhaps feel more secure at a hotel or at a place on Sandy Beach. Fortunately, there are so many options - including one that's just perfect for you!
