Closest beach to Phoenix and yet somewhat undiscovered..
About Gord Stevenson
We Are Canadian Owners and LOVE both Arizona and Puerto Penasco / Rocky Point. We visit the area whenever we can.
Gord Stevenson purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Gord Stevenson chose Rocky Point
Quiet and secure yet close enough to the action. The beach is awesome; there is a work out center; there are 3 pools, 1 hot tub and 3 kiddie pools and a restaurant on site. There are many restaurants and a golf course nearby. Shopping at the Malacon for souvenirs or more importantly giant shrimp! Parasailing and jet skiing for the adventurous. Rent a sand rail and blaze around the sand out behind the resorts, climb "Competition Hill", or even just to get around town. Banana boats, massages on the sand, shell hunting, boogie boarding...all of it. For us Canadians the off season of January and February are great too...no snow and highs around room temperature.
What makes this Condo unique
We also enjoy the authentic nature of the city of Puerto Penasco. Sure, it has been influenced by tourism but just enough to be comfortable and not spoiled like some of the traditional fly-in resort cities. Puerto Penasco (aka Rocky Point) is just big enough to have banks, a Sam's Club, a Walmart (local subsidiary), a Burger King, a few places to get a car fixed, lots of restaurants...but not enough to overshadow the local culture. We provide an information document that tells you everything you need to know about the condo, what to bring, and our own learnings such as favorite restaurants.

Princesa C-303 Amazing
This is a 2 bedroom condo with all of the amenities. We used the coffee pot, but there is also a Keurig. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils, etc. Everything is organized and easy to locate. The living room has a set of very comfortable recliners, besides the sofa. Every room has a fan, with remote. Everything worked. I never needed to contact the manager or owner for issues.
"C" building is center, so we had a fantastic view of the beach - great for coffee drinking on the balcony.
We always stay at the Princesa because we have friends who rent houses in Costa Diamante, which is next door. Easy to walk over for visits. Plus, we have Colin's Cantina, which is awesome.
Working with Gord was a breeze. I emailed and text, and received responses within hours. The paperwork he sent was very detailed, with regards to who to contact for different things. I liked not having a physical key to the condo, so no worries about who gets keys or who loses keys.
The next time we have need for more than 1 bedroom, we will definitely look up this property again
Donna, thank you so much for the excellent review! You were a pleasure to host. Please come back any time!
Beautiful view and the condo was fantastic.
Thank you Kristine! Please come back any time. Cheers.
We absolutely loved our stay! Six of us (3 adults, 3 teens) fit very comfortably. The pictures didn't do the condo justice. We found the condo clean, modern & fully stocked with bottled water. The weather was perfect so we never even had to use the a/c. We never got direct sun on the balcony because of the direction it faces, which was wonderful. The view was perfect. We arrived before our check in time, so we sat for a few drinks & Mexican shrimp cocktail (Delish!) at Colin's Cantina. The staff was very polite & helpful. Our kids loved the pool & we loved that we could see them from the balcony. We felt very safe and secure since there was always security walking around, checking to see if everyone had their wristbands on. The guard shack was very diligent checking for parking permits. The beach directly in front of the resort wasn't over-crowded (even though we went on one of the busiest weekends). The vendors weren't too pushy, which was nice. There were jet skis for rent just steps away & banana boat rides also! We loved the banana boat so much we went on it twice!
I would highly recommend this condo & can't wait for our next visit!
Kimberly, thank you so much for your excellent review! You were a pleasure to host. Cheers!
Great place near a great beach and unique town that feels “not discovered” yet. Owners were kind and helpful! Their home was very comfortable and in a great location!
Thank you for a nice review Gail! We are very glad you enjoyed our condo and the town. You were a pleasure to host. Please come back any time!
Berit Miltun. Widow. Retired.
Very nice unit. Comfortable seating arrangements. All appliances, dishes, etc. were high quality. The only thing I missed was a jacuzzi, but they were in the process of installing one. Would definitely recommend to others and would rent again.
Hi Berit, thank you for your nice review! You were a pleasure to host. Come back any time! Yes, the hot tub renovation will be complete soon, and we are looking forward to it too! Cheers. Gord
We had a great time staying at Gord's property! The space was very clean and exactly as pictured. The property as a whole was also very nice, however there was only one pool we could use during our stay due to renovations (which we were warned of). The only issue we had was missing a few essential kitchen items that we expected to be there.
Thank you for the very nice review Alexandra! I would appreciate it if you would send me a note by email indicating what kitchen items you expected and did not find. We will consider them. We are always looking for opportunities to improve, and maybe others would like those items too.
Thanks for staying with us! Please come back any time. Cheers. Gord
