We are on the shore - Mirador beach is close by with a very long stretch of sandy beach just yards from our property line. We are just off a sandy Beach on the rocky portion of the area which gives Rocky Point its name. We are next to Mirador Beach used by locals to snorkel and swim, Sandy Beach is close by and is a popular swimming beach open to the public. Bring your boat - ATV's - excellent fenced parking lot with 24/7 roving security PLUS security cameras - IMPORTANT!!!!!! If you need help finding us just ask for directions to 'Manny's' on the beach. We are not a resort but a private residence, which is why our VRBO rates are much lower than seen else where in Puerto Penasco - do your homework and cost compare and see why VRBO and HomeAway is a smarter way to travel. Please, contact us through our email or phone us directly if you have any questions. This is a privately owned 3 bedroom condo, our wonderful home away from home. The amenities we offer provide privacy, excellent security as well as the comfort of living in your own home. Cook your own food, BBQ, do your laundry while enjoying an incredible view of the Sea of Cortez and be sure to watch for the dolphins! We are smack dab on the beach - check out our pictures! We'll provide a wealth of information about our city allowing you to explore and enjoy beautiful Puerto Penasco just as we do, perhaps even more - so, be sure to share. Check in is 3 PM check out is 11 AM, if you need an earlier arrival or later departure time we will try to accommodate if at all possible, we need this time to prepare the condo for the next guest. With VRBO and Home Away its a simple procedure, look at our calendar, select a date that's available and suits your need, I will receive your inquire and if we approve you will receive a request for your first payment - $100 will hold the dates. If the date inquired about occurs in less than 30 days, you will need to make the full payment upon booking. We are limited at Palicio Del Mar to having no more than 6 guests. Security and management will ask that this rule be complied with and all additional guest leave the area at a reasonable hour. We ask this to assure the comfort to our guests as well as our neighbors. Be sure to lock all doors at night, especially the back door use the wooden dowel and place it in the track - close the drapes when you leave or go to bed....we have excellent security but they can only assure so much and we are on the beach next to a large popular beach. Please, read all the information, questions answered might be available here. Do not rely upon your smart phone only, you might miss valuable information like our address, directions there ( Below), how many we can sleep, costs, how much to hold the dates picked, how to proceed in payments - this must be done on your side by YOU !!!!!
DIRECTION: Our condo is located just off Benito Juarez, the main street entering Puerto Penasco. There are seven red lights on this boulevard, the last being at Benito Juarez and Freemont. A pedestrian over pass is located here, a large green sign directing to Las Conchas will be seen, a large white building "Municipal Court" will be on you left which is on Campeche St., you will turn a slight left off Benito Juarez as it jogs to the right. You will go up a slight hill, see the ocean and landmark 'Manny's' restaurant on the left, an open beach in the middle. To your right on Malecon Kino will be a hollow tiled wall, behind this wall is a tall orange/yellow building, ours is the three story white one in the middle - a yellow guard shack with a security guard will ask you why you are there. Our unit is #108 on the main floor. I will provide the entrance code to the door once full payment is met. We offer what we feel to be an excellent rate and welcome our guests to compare our price to all others. Our goal is to encourage revisits, to encourage a cliental we feel comfortable renting to, to encourage them to tell others about their wonderful experience while in Mexico. We would much rather have our home enjoyed and appreciated and cared for by someone who enjoys Puerto Penasco. We hope to continue the fine service once offered by the previous owners who continue to reside at Palicio Del Mar. Our building is a private Condo near Whale Hill on the edge of El Mirador Beach which lives up to its name - Palace by the Sea - great for families, next to Old Port, yet secluded enough for honeymooners, perfect quiet sitting for writers and those who want to avoid the resort setting - yet still in town and close to all the local amenities we are just off the main road in town leading to Old Port; Bonita Juarez and Freemont (road to Las Conchas). Beautiful handmade Boveda Brick Dome Ceiling in living room, regular size appliances and tastefully decorated in modern decor. An excellent place to rest and relax, watch playful dolphins, spouting whales and comical pelicans. Pull up one of our numerous beach chairs and BBQ near the pool, or watch the sunset sipping a cool drink under a zillion stars and count the glowing lights of the distant shrimp boats at night which make Puerto Penasco Mexico's Shrimping Capital. Eat at Mikey's on nearby Freemont - an Iron Chef winner, or at Iron Chef Luca Appendino's Pane Vino Purto Penasco's authentic Italian restaurant. Dine at one of the roadside food vendors, eat at Dukes which offers a popular $2.50 deluxe hamburger on Mondays, order a Cheiky's Pizza and have food brought to your door - Juniors Restaurant, Sushi Sun, Yummi Salads, Cocina Express or buy all the fixings at Ley's and prepare a feast yourself in our modern fully equipped kitchen. King size bed, 2 Queen size beds, 2 fold up cots, with 2 walk in showers ideal for seniors and wheel chair users there are NO stairs!!! - the ocean is right outside your door with paved sidewalks leading from your patio to the pool. Popular Mirador beach is just a short walk away. Friendly 24 hour security with wonderful full time condo owners living near by. Close to restaurants and in walking distance to small convenience stores stocked with American food. Our condo is tucked just in front of Whale Hill providing more privacy than found in most resorts. The location is ideal for those who enjoy a peaceful, relaxing ocean setting yet has the exclusive opportunity of being right in the heart of Puerto Penasco. We offer a favorite getaway for those living up north who want a break from the cold wind, ice and snow - and best of all its just a short day's drive from Phoenix, Yuma, Las Vegas. Mexico requires its own car insurance, which is affordable, or take a bus down and rent a bike or four wheeler or use a local taxi. At this time we do NOT have Internet service BUT FREE WIFI is available at most restaurants which are near by, no ringing phones, no internet - just you, the beach, and the peaceful sea. And before I forget - we have good surf fishing in front of our Condo as the tide comes in, so bring your fishing gear! Kayaks are welcome too!
We fell in love with this privately owned condo and purchased it as our winter get away. The condo has been in excellent care from its previous owners who continue to own the condo next door. There are only three vacation rentals in this entire three building complex each with their own unique design! 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 and snow flies! We are family people, originally from Hawaii who love exploring new cultures and sharing our findings with others. We have lived in Hawaii, still have family there, and understand the need to blend in 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 are 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.
Richard and Reta "Charline" Griffith purchased this condo in 2014
One of the few places where you can bring your boat, ATV's as we have ample parking with some of the best security around - newly strategically placed cameras protect our complex. We offer much of what's needed to relax and be at home with a private Mexican flair, to spend the day exploring and know a welcome tastefully decorated room awaits your return. It is semi-secluded - in fact, there will be times when you may be the only resident with only another condo owner on site in the adjacent building or in the condo above. The security is fantastic - they make their rounds and check all vehicles entering the complex. The ocean is right outside your large sliding door - the tide changes twice a day revealing numerous tide pools where hermit crabs and various sea life live. Fishermen can often be seen close-by casting a line during tide changes. A much longer sandy beach El Mirador is to your left where you can launch your Kayak and do some surf fishing, or simply sit outside on the patio and enjoy the million dollar view which makes Puerto Penasco such a special place to live and visit. Best of all you can drive here and the weather is sunny and warm practically all year round. If you love fresh seafood this is the place - Colossal Shrimp, Jumbo Scallops, Grouper, Flounder all freshly caught and just around the corner from Placio Del Mar - or eat a meal at one of the numerous restaurants and take advantage of one of their delicious daily specials - Dukes has a fantastic deluxe hamburger for $2.50 on Monday's, Liver and Onions at the nearby VFW on Wednesday's for $5 --- or meet friendly four star chiefs who mingle with their guests - and don't be surprised if you recognize them from Food Networks famous show 'Iron Chief'!
Ample 24/7 secured parking, with security cameras. I will provide excellent suggestions on where to eat, what to see, banking, shopping - the little things and big things which makes your stay extraordinary - unlike the majority of resorts in Rocky Point we are in town. This is a true walk right out the large patio door on to the beach condo. No stairs to climb, no elevator to wait for. It is somewhat secluded which makes it an ideal place to heal, to rest and recharge the batteries needed in life. Open the door and take your dog for a walk! We have internet. Rain is rare, cold weather even less - the walk down the long hall takes you to an incredible mouth dropping view of the ocean - surf can reach mild heights which fills the rooms with its calming sound as it slaps the shoreline. We enjoy sitting outside on our patio watching the shrimp boats come and go during the day to unload their catch, and in the evening they can be spotted in the distant horizon as they use their powerful night lights to attract shimp and lower their nets to catch this bountiful export. Shrimping has made Puerto Penasco Mexico's shrimp capitol. We fell in love with this condo after seeking out a place offering true beach views, privacy and easy access, we also wanted a place with true on the beach views, where we could prepare our own meals and nest in when the need arose - an excellent place for relaxing and spiritual healing minus all the pressures of resort life and yet more affordable than a resort! We hope to continue providing the care and services previously offered making your visit exceptional and look forward to your stay. And for those who need to stay connected we now have WIFI - NO local channels on TV reach our area such as - ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX or PBS - instead we have CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of Direct TV station
We arrived during sunset and the view was amazing.
Security was great and knowing they were there made me feel at ease. Our stay was comfortable and the condo was nice. I enjoyed being away from the major resorts and the location it was easy to get to the main shopping and restaurants. I would recommend others to stay here!
The condo was very nice and well suited and the kitchen had everything (except paper towels) we needed. It was a little weird not having a window in the master bedroom, as it seemed like nighttime all the time. We had an issue with the coffee pot but another one was brought to us that day. Richard and Charlene were so sweet to work with, they provided great directions and a bunch of places to go. It was too cold to swim but the pool was very pretty and clean. We would definitely rent again. Thank you Richard and Charlene!!!! Happy New Year!!
My family and I choose to stay here as a late honeymoon/family vacation. The house was beautiful and so quiet and relaxing! Every morning we would drink coffee on the patio and watch the ocean while our 2 small children played in the rocks/sand. There was even dolphins most mornings! The owners were great with everything we needed and so friendly and nice! When we first got there the guard wasn't at the guard house to let us in (he was walking the grounds)and we called owners and they told us to go on in and they'll call the guard. And then when we did get into the beautiful home, there was a trail of ants from the patio door to the kitchen. Which wasn't that big of a deal and understandable because it is on the beach. So we called them again and informed them and they called the manager of the house and she quickly came over to look. She helped get them under control and was soo nice and friendly! Other then that, the stay was AMAZING! It is connected to other houses but everyone was so nice! The beach/ocean was beautiful! The only down side was the beach was incredibly rocky and a little dangerous with small children. But the tide pools and sea life was amazing! When the sun started setting we would climb down the rocks to the little tide pools and catch crabs and even saw an octopus! And if you walk across the kind of sandy beach off to the side of the houses, there's a bar and some vendors to buy some neat things! We would definitely stay here again if traveling with a smaller group as it only accommodates 6. Would most definitely recommend a small family or group to stay here!
My family enjoyed our stay here, it was everything we had hoped. Very restful and beautiful. Just like we were told the dolphins came by each morning and afternoon. the home was comfortably furnished and everything worked. My grandchildren played on beach and love looking for shells with many to take home. I think our favorite thing was the wonderful sunsets to enjoy. I would recommend this home if you are looking for relaxing place to vacation.
A big thanks to Richard and Charline
We have been to RP a couple dozen times over the years and this was so far, our favorite place we have stayed. Quiet, relaxing and a quality condo. Everything needed was provided and the location was perfect.
The owners of this property are extremely nice and provided great communication. The view is amazing and we saw dolphins every day right from the patio. The only disappointment is there is NO beach on site. You can walk about 300 yards to a beach but it's not ideal. For some reason the pictures give the illusion there is a beach but there isn't at all. PERFECT hideaway for a couple who wants a romantic trip and doesn't want to swim in the ocean.
The view is amazing
Great snorkeling (due to the rocks, not for armatures)
Sitting on the back patio is great
Fridge smelled really bad (owners are aware now)
Kind of remote location (could be good or bad)

Please, use the same Internet Provider to make your first and second payments - VRBO's computer will NOT accept a second payment from a different IP as it identifies the first contact used, e.g. Smart phone, Lap Top, P.C. as your home address. This is to avoid booking two guests with the same names on the same dates. A deposit is required immediately to hold your reservation. Due to our popularity we can not save a reservation without a confirmation. NO TAXES IN MEXICO!!!! NO HIDDEN FEES!!!! Check in is 3 PM - check out is 11 AM. Unless permission is given in writing (email) only six guests are allowed to be in the condo over night - security will ask that additional guest vacate the building due to violation of our agreement. This is for your safety as well as respect to the other home owner's residing in Palicio Del Mar who are aware of this rule and graciously allow us to rent out or condo. Violators will be asked to leave and will forfeit their deposit and rent in full. Our condo building consists of three floors. Our unit is on the first floor in the middle and is marked unit '108' which is on the large wooden door. We do not offer Internet service as the previous owners provided. This service was split between unit 107 & 108 and paid for by the individuals who once owned both units. It was agreed due to privacy issues to discontinue this service until a new private line was installed which will be costly. There is a long waiting list for this service as well. To keep our fees low we have decided to postpone this addition, to those who have rented before and expect Internet we apologize for the inconvenience, we suggest using one of the numerous free WIFI connections which are offered in numerous establishments throughout Puerto Penasco and to remember, as we often do ourselves, this is our wonderful vacation and a good time to get away from it all.
