2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps-Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco) MX #E1004
Do you enjoy sitting on a balcony sipping morning coffee while watching the sun slowly rise or sipping a leisurely glass of wine while watching a glorious sunset over the Sea of Cortez? If so, a relaxing vacation at Encanto Living (Enchanted) is the place for you. Just a few miles down the beach from the quaint Mexican fishing village of Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco), this stunning, private, gated community is located on Playa Miramar (Miramar Beach), a quiet secluded beach away from all traffic and noise. Playa Miramar is absolutely pristine with unbelievable shell collecting. You can stroll for miles and encounter tide pools and an occasional great heron. Dolphin sightings are common and the pelican patrols are delightful.
From this lavish yet affordable oceanfront resort you can hear the waves lapping at the shore and savor gentle Sea of Cortez ocean breezes while staying connected with all the courtyard activities. Encanto Living was developed by the same family that developed all of the Mayan resorts throughout Mexico, so quality, perfection and amenities abound. The Grand Lobby has soaring 15-foot ceilings and indoor fireplaces. The pool area is lushly landscaped with a heated infinity pool, sun loungers, oceanfront whirlpool spas, private cabanas, outdoor fireplaces, assigned shaded parking, fitness center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and free weights, steam room with his and her facilities, multi-function community room, tennis and basketball courts and a self-serve pool bar & grill. The resort has 24 hour security and on-site English and Mexican property management.
From its enormous terrace, your majestic condo has 180 degree views of the Sea of Cortez and Miramar Beach. With over 2000 square feet of living area, this condo, which can accommodate up to 6 people, has 2 master bedrooms and 2.5 baths. A soothing Jacuzzi tub is located in the Grand Master suite. The fully stocked modern kitchen is complete with granite counter tops and GE stainless steel appliances. The condo has a full size washer and dryer. Internet Wi-Fi, premium Direct TV and free phone to the US are added features. No water issues here. Encanto has its own water purification system with water coming from deep mountain wells.
Encanto Living is near the Mayan Palace, which is an easy walk along the beach or a 5 minute drive away. There you can enjoy pool side margaritas, casual and fine dining. Their fabulous restaurant offers a fantastic Sunday brunch as well as excellent lunch and dinner menus. A Jack Nicholas premier Golf Course is there as well. Many water tour activities can be secured at the Mayan such as fishing, whale watching and trips to Bird Island for snorkeling.
A 20 minute drive takes you to Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco) where you can explore the fish market and shops in Old Port or enjoy the conveniences of a Sam's Club and Rocky Point’s version of Wal-Mart (Bodega Aurelia). If you fancy the work of Mexican artisans, a visit to Cholla Mall is a must.

About Encanto Vacations LLC-Sandy & Loren
We have been time-share members for several years and have enjoyed every place where we have stayed. But we wanted a vacation home and the ability to give our guests more options than just a week rental. This condo gives us all those options and many more, especially since it is located very near the exclusive Mayan Palace. We are both from the cold, snowy Mid-west but have moved around quite a lot due to jobs, etc. Currently we are living in Phoenix - just a hop, skip and a jump away from Rocky Point. We have 3 grown children and 6 grandchildren (all of whom love the beach by the way).

Why Encanto Vacations LLC-Sandy & Loren chose Puerto Peñasco Municipality
While vacationing at Mayan Palace a couple of months ago, we fell in love with this property and the nearby town of Puerto Penasco. The area is quiet, the people are exceptionally friendly, and the restaurants and shopping are great.

Relax and Disconnect
Had a fabulous 5 days of sailing, diving, kayaking and soaking up sunshine and being disconnect. Unit did not disappoint. Owner provides exact information on check in and check out process which results in a seemless process. Have stayed on this beach in houses for 16 years. Staying in one of the towers was a great choice. Thanks for making our few days on the Sea of Cortez so enjoyable.
Very well equipped unit and very comfortable. Everything works as it should, property was great. Access to Mayan lazy river fun, enjoyed the stay.
Excellent property on a fabulous beach. Nice, comfortable, large condo!
We have stayed at the Encanto Living location multiple times. This a perfect beach in a quiet location. This condo was perfect for us, plus clean and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. Saw dolphins from the ocean facing master bed in the morning twice, a nice treat. The place is out of town, so come prepared and enjoy!
Great view, fully furnished and wonderful beach - Able to use Grand Mayan rounds out resort feel
Well, since I'm used to hotels, I was blown away because this is more like a fully furnished apartment with full kitchen (and utensils) and washer/dryer. There's a comfortable living room and a high dinning room table. The owners put the niceties into the finishing touches, like books, puzzles and games. The bathrooms are fancy with frosted glass for private commodes/showers, walk-in closets and a hot tub with a view in the master bath.
The view from 10 stories up is incredible! The flat goes across both sides of the building, so a bedroom and the living room has a view of the sea (from comfortable patio sofa's) and the other has a view to the mountains and volcano miles away. The flat is on the west side, so it has a perfect view of the sunset. Go to the beach to see the sunrise.
The beach is very calm. When we were there, waves were measured in inches, and from what we heard, that's typical for the area. At low tide (sunrise/set), there's a very wide sandy beach that's comfortable for walking. At high tide (noon'ish) the shore is mostly broken shells, so that can be hard on the feet. The shore slope is very, very gradual, so you can go, say 800m, out and the water will just be 1m deep, so waist high at a half mile :). We saw some sea life: minnows jump out of the water, pelicans and gulls, and one crab on the beach. But there are beautiful shells everywhere. The beach is literally littered with them. Shell collecting is one of the kids favorite activities.
Their other favorite was visiting the Grand Mayan resort for activities there. There's a some sort of reciprocity agreement that you can use for the package deal there. We didn't have any issue.
The beautiful pools (including sparkling 'starlights' in the tile) were not warm. The jacuzzis (yes, plural) were warm, and large enough for it's own party, but we tended to just go to the warmer sea (this was in October).
There is no dining near. Mayan is close, but still awkward to bundle up a bunch of small kids, and they have 'resort' prices. For more options, you have to take a 30+min drive into town. Fortunately, there's the furnished kitchen.
Final recommendation: This is a great place outside of Puerto Penasco. It's not going to have the same feel as an all inclusive resort that you just live at. I would not recommend this place if you don't have transportation. It's not large, so I don't think it would get cramped (about 40 units). Great place to relax.
Encanto Living is my favorite resort!
This resort is remarkable. It's as if you have your own private beach, several pools and hot tubs to choose from. There are massage tents set up on the beach with remarkable local therapists doing their best to earn a decent living. This was our second stay here and plan on coming back twice a year!
Incredible views. Quiet and clean!
If you plan to stay in a quiet place, far away from anything crowded, then this is the place you are looking for. Awesome views, calm and clean.
Thank you so much! We hope to see you and your friends back soon.
