About Richard and Reta "Charline" Griffith
We fell in love with this ocean front condo and purchased it as our winter getaway. The condo has been in excellent care from its previous owners who continue to own the one next door. We're retired and love living in the Pacific Northwest but like to have a warm place to spend a few cold winter weeks when fishing slows here and snow flies! We're family people, originally from Hawaii who love exploring new cultures and sharing our findings with others. We've lived in Hawaii, still have family there, and understand the need to find familiar supports while respecting the unique needs of others. Keeping an open mind to allow new ideas is a must as it has permitted us to widen our view not only of the world but sample so many wonderful cultures in exchange. We realize we have an exceptional condo and hope exceptional individuals searching for that 'right place' will agree, as we have, we've discovered a wonderful place to vacation, good people, and an incredible home away from home. We continue to offer what we feel is an excellent rate to assure full capacity and welcome any questions you might have, we're in the phone book! All we ask is to treat our home with the same respect and care you would seek from ourselves if we stayed in your home, to respect our neighbors and be kind and friendly to the wonderful men who protect our homes.

Why Richard and Reta "Charline" Griffith chose Rocky Point
We're located in a secluded private area in the Mirador portion of Puerto Penasco. Our beautiful condo is on the first floor, the private blue infinity pool is incredible, the decor inside is tasteful with ample storage closets in two bedrooms to hold your personal belongings. The Mexican tiled showers are huge and easily accessed. Parking is under 24/7 security behind tall protective walls preventing exposure to ocean salt air. There's even room for RV parking.
What makes this Condo unique
Wonderful living conditions for individuals with mobility issues or small children. No stairs. Two large Mexican tiled walk in showers. No slippery bathtub to climb into! Quiet and far removed from resorts while just around the corner from Puerto Penasco's famous destination; "Old Port". We provide WiFi, Cable TV in English. The ocean view from our back door is absolutely breathtaking. We fell in love with this beautiful peaceful place that's incredibly still in town and close to everything Rocky Point has to offer.

Beautiful Condo with lots of room
We loved our stay in RP! The condo has an amazing view of the ocean and a great pool. It's just a short 3 minute walk across an empty lot to the beach, right by Manny's Beach Club. The condo was very clean and lots of room for the four of us. I would absolutely rebook this place. The owner was easy to work with and offered recommendations on local places to eat and things to do.
The property is gorgeous, good location
The place is gorgeous, but had some major downfalls. My biggest discomfort was the lock box on the a/c. The air was set to 79 the whole weekend. When there’s 6 people in the place and it’s 105 degrees outside it was WAY too hot! I have never been to a place where they don’t allow you to control your own comfort.
There was no running water accept in the kitchen sink. We had to take sponge baths in the kitchen.
We were left maybe half a paper towel roll and the equivalent for toilet paper in each bathroom. Needless to say, we ran out of both. They do not stock any extra, so make sure you bring your own paper products.
The hosts already seem aware, but the WiFi is spotty to non-existent.
Some things I loved about the place- you can tell they have a regular cleaning service. The place was very clean. The security guards are awesome! They were very nice and informative. The condo is right up against a rock wall that leads into the ocean. Not great for water activities, but you can walk about a 1/4 mile to the sandy beaches.
We have no control over the water pressure which can be limited as water in Rocky Point is a premium. We explained this when you emailed us about the water being off. The water law in Rocky Point is mentioned in our listing . Water is turned off by security when any condo or home is vacant even for a few days. Your reservation was sudden and last minute. We had just left our condo and it was fully stocked with all that was needed. Our housekeeper also verified this. We cannot control the other situations you've mentioned doing our best to describe in our listing our location and presence in Rocky Point providing pictures to substantiate. We also had detailed conversations with you regarding the internet and the fact we had placed sensors on our doors to control the use of our A/C. A lock box on the thermostat is present to prevent damages to our A/C as some have the tendency to turn the unit to its lowest setting which over taxes our A/C causing it to ice up and freeze leading to extensive damages to the device as well as costly structural damage to our home. When no one is in our condo it is set to 78 degrees. When occupied it should be set at 70 degrees. Our housekeeper would have adjusted this error if we had been notified. As many who live there know an electric bill becomes cost prohibited as people turn up the A/C then leave doors leading outdoors open. We do our best to accommodate and would have done so immediately if we had known. Our previous ratings support our efforts and we're always available to answer questions and direct individuals to solutions as are those who have stayed with us in the past have listed in their reviews. You contacted us regarding the water being off, we explained why it was off and how to have it turned back on. There was no mention of subsequent poor water flow, no mention of lack in toilet paper. etc. . Unfortunately no one in your party contacted us by phone or emails with any of those other issues you've listed until now. If you had, we would've gladly intervened in your behalf to address them. We are seriously considering removing our home from being available except to family and trusted friends due to the sharp rise in electricity in Mexico - and the fact this is also our home and those we "trust" to care for it depend on us for employment.

very nice had a great time
very nice very comfortable
This was our first time to Rocky Point and I truly cannot say enough nice things. The property is exactly as it looks it's spacious and so comfortable. The bedrooms are nice and clean. The bathrooms offer plenty of space. The washer & dryer were convenient for washing beach towels. The kitchen is well stocked. The patio & BBQ are a ton of fun. Right off the patio to the left is a pool which the kids loved. There is a beach area right outside the sliding glass door then a tide pool beach below. The cantina which is totally walking distance was so much fun. Roxanne the gal that helps out was over the top helpful and friendly. We had paid for a fishing charter and the company "no showed" literally at the last minute and she got a friend to take the boys out fishing the next day and they literally came home screaming "best day ever". The security guards were so friendly and so thorough they walk the property the entire night. The property owners were so responsive and accommodating. We will absolutely be back next summer if not sooner.
Thank you so much for your gracious review. We do our best to take care of those who stay in our condo. Your kind response allows others to know we do our very best to make their visit just as great as our own stay in Penasco has always been... a terrific one!
Nice view clean home everything we needed was there
Great place would definitely stay there again
Well, thank you! Hearing from satisfied individuals who've stayed in our condo is the very best form of advertisement. We do our best to assist making this a vacation to remember. We know ourselves how being in Mexico might have challenges especially for first time visitors - Where to buy groceries? Do you drink the water? Where's the best place to buy pesos? and numerous other questions. We do our best to reply swiftly and if needed have those taking care of our condo available to assist. Thank you again for validating our efforts, Charline.
My family and I loved the condo and the view! Definitely will be booking again for future stays!
Thank you! We are in our condo now checking on items, replacing things needing updated, doing annual repairs and are happy to find not much is needed except some new cookware. Very glad A/C is working as strong as ever especially when Phoenix is expected to be well above 110 degrees next week. These cooler evenings here without the humid monsoons are wonderful! Looking forward to having you stay again. Charline
