About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 with sleeper sofa (recommended for kids)

Walk to the beach and SAVE! Beautiful new single family home on quiet street in Mirador area of Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco, Mexico). This home boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Close to all the action that Rocky Point has to offer, yet far enough to get a peaceful night's sleep. A 10 minute walk South gets you to an uncrowded beach away from all the vendors. Secure parking. Smart TV with Netflix subscription. WiFi. Friendly American Neighbors keep an eye out for each other. You're not compromising anything here, just the exorbitant rates charged by the beach-side rentals. It's time to come back to Mexico!

About Erik Becker

I was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan. I am a die-hard Wolverine fan, having earned my Bachelor degree in Economics from the University of Michigan. I moved to Arizona in 1994 for the warm, dry climate. I purchased the home in Rocky Point in 2007 after making a handsome profit on the sale of my home (thank you real estate bubble!). I currently live in the Phoenix area with my wife, Tammy, and our three kids. We love the warm, dry climate of Arizona and enjoy the similar climate of Rocky Point, with the added advantage of having an ocean nearby. We are both avid scuba divers and love to dive with the sea lions at Bird Island. We've been down to Rocky Point nearly 100 times and have never had any issues. The locals and expats are all as friendly as can be. It is truly a fun and laid back atmosphere. We are excited for every chance we get to visit.

Erik Becker purchased this house in 2007

Why Erik Becker chose Benito Juárez

I fell in love with the place as soon as I saw it. The location was ideal, being close to restaurants and stores and within walking distance of the beach. It was brand new when I bought it and I appreciated that it was built by an American who actually lives across the street. I like the enclosed, gated driveway, the walled in back yard, and the large cupula (dome) in the living room. But most of all, I feel at peace when I enter the front door. It's just such a cozy, comfortable space. For me, it's not just a house or investment property, it's HOME. That's why I ask anybody who wants to stay there: Please treat the place like it's your home... Thank you!

What makes this house unique

Low rental rates. All the conveniences you get at home. Friendly neighbors that look out for one another. Walking distance to the beach. Walking distance to restaurants, bars and convenience stores. Knowledgeable and caring property manager nearby.

Exactly as presented in the photos.

  • 4 of 5

I spent 3 months at the casita and enjoyed my time there very much. The house is exactly as the posting says; clean and cool. The yards are very small but big enough to park securely, BBQ and spend time outdoors with your pet. I would come back in a heartbeat.

My wife and I appreciated your flexibility and the opportunity to get to know you a little bit. Please come back soon! Erik

The Little Casita That Could!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We walked to Mi Playa. Everything was close and convenient. Eric supplies everything you need, in the house, for a comfortable stay. The mockingbirds were my favorite piece of fauna in the yard. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful casa

  • 2 of 5

Not near ocean, no lounge chairs for front and back of house. Stayed one night and found a villa with ocean view and nearby pool. Enjoyed breakfast across parking lot. If this casa was on ocean it would be excellent.

Owner's Response: The property description says "Walk to the Beach and Save". Nowhere does it state that the home is close to the beach. I guess it's a matter of perspective. My wife and I make the walk in about 10-15 minutes. Because the home is not on or near the beach, you pay a lot less rent. Not sure why I got a 2-star review for offering value, but it's your prerogative. I appreciate, however, the suggestion on seating. I just put a new built-in grill in the backyard, so it would be nice to have some seating in back. Thanks for your feedback! Erik
