Bedrooms 6
Space 2,100 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

The minim stay is three nights and you get a fourth night free. This means pay for three nights and get four nights for the same price.

This house was built to entertain a lot of guests without feeling cramped. It has two master bedrooms in the front with private bathrooms containing granite counter tops and showers. These bedrooms have private fire places and ocean views. They open into a large gathering room with a 25 foot brick dome ceiling, family room and kitchen that looks out on the ocean. There is a large lower covered patio area and an upper tanning deck. The four back bedrooms open up on another brick domed family room. Each of these bedrooms have room access to the bathrooms that are between the two bedrooms rooms located on both sides of the family area. They are large bathrooms with dual sinks granite counter tops and granite showers. The house has travertine floors with a 5 star resort look. Like many beach front homes in Mexico the house incorporates solar technology. It is powered by the sun and a large battery bank. The water is trucked in to fill a large water tank under the garage. It is totally self contained and a backup generator is provided. The house solar which allows us to offer an affordable rate to our guest. We try to limit the number of occupants to 12 because of water and electrical management. We ask that you have a conservative approach when it comes to water and electrical consumption. The Sea of Cortez is not about the house. It is about the enjoying the breath taking beauty of the beach.

It was built for family and friends to get away and have fun. The house is equipped with bocce sets, horse shoes, bean toss, kayaks, paddle boards, fishing equipment, beach chairs, beach lounge chairs. In town there is scuba diving tours, cocktail cruises, deep sea fishing, sports bars, restaurants, shopping and other adventures. This is not San Diego but the Paradise described in many Jimmy Buffet songs. The beach is like a peaceful Corona commercial setting. If you need the San Diego 5 star meal and feel Mayan Palace is 2 miles from the house.

If you are into sailing and know what your doing we have land sailors, kite surfing, wind surfing and sunfish sail boats. All this can be discussed to enhance your stay. Come experience something new in an environment you will never forget.

Why John R Keen chose Rocky Point

The house was designed by a Mexican Architect who had built many beach homes in the region. We built the home as a family retreat. We have entertained Church groups, high school groups, relatives and many friends and neighbors over the years.

What makes this house unique

We love the people in the region and the beautiful blue Sea of Cortez. The 25 foot brick dome ceiling and private beach makes the place great for relaxing and all beach and water sports.

average rating of 4.285714 based on 28 reviews

Gorgeous house, great views, but definitely some downfalls...

  • 2 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed staying in this roomy house and it was extremely nice to have the beach literally to ourselves for a few days. However, there are a few things that no one has noted so I went ahead and made a list of them below to hopefully help future renters:

40 min drive to the tourist part of town, not 15-20. It’s about 25 to the Puerto Peñasco sign from the house but then you have to drive further than that

No AC - bring fans or small AC units. Guests from prior times said there was AC but we were told there was never AC to begin with

Ants everywhere - kitchen dining room and outside, bring bug spray, lotion or candles. Keep an eye out for black widows

WiFi - couldn’t be located on our whole trip nor could we find the instructions where they were said to be

Power - We used generator a few times throughout the nights because you have to use fans in order to sleep comfortably but there isn’t enough power to keep it going. Be conservative of fans, lights, appliances, charging electronics

Fridge - not cold whatsoever. Bring ice chests and plenty of ice and store meats in freezer

Recommend bring your own pillows and blankets, bath towels, kitchen utensils

Grill - didn’t heat up hardly at all, used stove instead. Bring your own small grill if possible

Beach stuff in garage - chairs, boogie boards and what not were all pretty warn and need to be replaced. We didn’t use any kayaks or paddle boards because they looked like they were deteriorating.

Owner's Response: When Valerie arrived we did have some confusion with the cleaner. We close the house at the end of June through August because it is hot in Phoenix. The cleaners arrived as soon as she let us know it was not cleaned. They had already shut down the house for the summer and taken all the bedding from the house. We had granted an early check in from the 4 o'clock arrival and the cleaners had it together by 5 that night. I am sure they rushed to get it done. May and June are our busiest months and we had been booked almost everyday in those months. Traffic through the house with groups that say they are 10 but end up being 20 do put some wear and tear on the house. It was very hot when they were there. If the breeze is coming of the sand and not the water there can be bugs at that time of year. 1. There is no AC nor has there ever been AC at the house. There is no electric on the beach. The house is solar with a backup generator and batteries making it totally self sufficient. 2. The house will not run portable AC units because they draw too much power. Please do not bring them. 3. The house sits on the waters edge so everything outside that is metal will rust in 60 days. Grills are effected by that environment. The grill she is talking about is 4 months old. 4. There is internet at the house. It is in the front bedroom. There is a sign that is screwed into a concrete wall that tells how to reset it. 5. Town is 15-20 minutes away unless you use the road you entered by. Most people turn there roaming data off on their phone so they are not set up on GPS. You have to turn right at the railroad crossing. If you go the way you came in it is 30 to 40 minutes not 20 minutes. John

It’s hard to go wrong in Rocky Point... in general, our stay was nice and anytime we need something, the owner was very responsive... but there were some things that could use improvement:

1. There was some kind of white powder all over the kitchen floor along the edges... pretty sure ant poisoning, as the one of the mornings we woke up to ants all over our food on the counter. The powder was concerning as we had many children... including one crawling baby.

2. The fridge was not very cold. And there were no shelves to keep food on the door. Almost every time we opened the fridge, something would fall out.

3. The power went out multiple times. The house is run on solar batteries, so you are very limited to use of electricity.

4. Poor water pressure. It was tough to get sand off with the lack of pressure.

5. Not a lot of hot water. I took a lot of cold showers.

6. The overall feel of the House was just a little run down... could use a little facelift.

Even with these things... we did enjoy our stay. The beach is very private and quiet.

Very Good!

  • 4 of 5

We had great weather and a ton of fun! Everything worked in the house; fridge, showers (although not a great amount of water pressure), electricity etc. It was nice to have plenty of toys for the teenagers; kayaks, corn hole, kites etc. Enjoyed the firepit every night. A bit of a trip to town, not a big deal we just made a day of it. We would rent here again!!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had the best time in Mr Keen's home!! I loved waking up and looking straight out to the Sea of Cortez. The beach was beautiful, tons of various shells everywhere!

The house is far from town but feels so private and safe. We drove into town for groceries and dinners but no traffic or any problems.

Everything in the house worked fine! I did learn that the water pressure is stronger in the front bathroom than my master bath , so you may prefer that option.

My family rode horses and got massages on the beach in front of the house!!

I cant say enough but hope to get the chance to return!
