Overview

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 Puerto Peñasco

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.

NOT GOOD VALUE FOR THE MONEY

  • 1 of 5

I will attempt to summarize our experience with this property/property owner. Most importantly - owner NOT responsive to issues we experienced upon arrival. STILL no response. Was responsive until he received payment, then very slow to respond, then no response. Secondly, we have been going to Rocky Point for 20+ years; we understand and embrace the culture, the inconsistencies in power, water, etc., but when amenities are listed as part of the rental and they aren't there, it is unacceptable. We were two families, 12 total, one of which was a medical doctor and was counting on internet service to check on patients. This was our experience:

1) upon arrival, kayaks were being used by random persons

2) Mattresses were great but no extra blankets - it was COLD!

3) no bath or kitchen towels (had to go to guard at entrance several times to get help)

4) no internet until after 3 days - an engineer among us got it working

5) two gas heaters didn't work - one leaked gas until maintenance person repaired it 2 days later; two heaters connected to propane tanks ran out after 3 hours. It was cold and there

6) NO HOT WATER for 2 days! Maintenance person said to let it run a long time; worked in 2 bathrooms, but never in the kitchen; had to boil water to wash MANY dishes. Instructions for the house indicated to check the water heater in the laundry room, which WAS LOCKED.

7) Amenities we were not prepared to supply - garbage bags, toilet tissue, paper towels, dishwashing soap - were not there. Had we known, we would have been prepared.

8) Various light bulbs and some outlets not working

9) Kitchen ill equipped for heavy cooking, and most importantly - UNSAFE teflon cookware (also some still dirty) which is a health hazard! Dishwasher fell out of counter (not completely). It was useless.

10) Flies could have been controlled if there would have been a cover to the trash can inside the house. They were awful!

11) Instructions to the house and property unclear - locking door upon leaving, nothing about getting hot water - ran water in one bathroom for 13+ minutes before it got hot. With the warning on not to use too much water, this seemed terribly wasteful.

House is beautiful but becoming rundown, not being maintained.

I place a lot of importance on reviews; we were astonished and very upset with this experience. We will never stay at this property again and cannot recommend it.

Amazing house for a true beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a perfect location for a beach vacation. Everything worked very well. Grill could use a slight upgrade but stove worked so good that we didn’t miss grilling that much. Couldn’t have had better sunrises or sunsets. We will definitely be back here!!

Great House on a perfect beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. Everything work perfectly. We had no trouble with appliances. We have stayed in solar powered houses before. You must conserve energy. We had no problem with power. Every room still had enough power to run fans at night. Perfect beach. No rough coral in front. Just smooth sand. Coral is a short walk away. Plenty of toys supplied. The only complaint is hot water took a long time to come on half the house. Some outlets did not work. Quality comfortable beds. Nice cabinets and furniture. Thanks for the great House John

Great place for a group to stay or large family but need to understand limitations

  • 5 of 5

Seriously neat house. Totally off the grid which means you just need to be careful with electric/water use but we had zero troubles. Enough beds for 16+ people and enough to do outside to keep everyone busy. Make sure to bring things like binoculars and spices and a LOT of ice. Some of the water toys are a little older and need some TLC, but other than that, we had a blast (the kayaks were in the water a lot with our group). Also note that it is about a 20-minute drive into town. Easy drive, goes by fast, and the gas station outside of town has great prices.
