Closest beach to Phoenix and yet somewhat undiscovered..

A beautiful recently renovated 2 bedroom 2 bath split master plan with California King beds in both bedrooms and a convertible sofa-bed in the living room. Equipped (linens, towels, etc) for up to 6 people comfortably. Beautiful beaches, the charm of Mexico, and the comforts of home!

There are activities for the kids, romantic spots for the adults, and other entertaining events that the whole family can enjoy. The Princesa is beach living at its finest. You will see the stunning views of paradise right from your balcony, as well as from the kitchen, dining area, living room, and master bedroom!

When you look out of your condo you will be viewing the gorgeous Sea of Cortez which is enough reason by itself to visit the Princesa. If you don’t want to walk the extra few feet to the beach there are three large swimming pools, three wading pools for kids, and a hot pool where you can relax and meet other vacationers. There is nothing like putting your feet in the sand on beach though, and this beach is fabulous and it is right there in front of you!

There are many activities at the Princesa that will keep the whole family entertained for your entire getaway vacation. If you want peace and quiet it is there. If you want action you can rent a Rhino or Quad and rip around in the desert; or take a flight in an ultra-light; or ride a horse along the beach; or rent some Jet Skis; or go for a ride on a banana boat. It is all there! The resort has a fitness center and swimming pools to keep yourself fit. For those looking for more of a relaxing experience, the beach is always open and is never overcrowded. How about a massage on the beach? This section of the beach is only for resort visitors, so you can count on always having your own piece of the beach to enjoy with your guests.

This resort is only a few minutes from the active fishing port of Puerto Penasco, where you can enjoy various restaurants, shops, and clubs with your friends or family. Pick up some shrimp or fish at any of the vendors on the Malecon or around town and grill them on the private grill on your balcony. Awesome!!!

This condo is large (1150 sq ft) and features spectacular views. It features two large private bedrooms in a split-master arrangement, each with a California King size bed plus a convertible sofa-bed in the living room. It is set up to accommodate up to 6 comfortably. The primary master bedroom has an en suite full bathroom as well as a view of the ocean. The second bedroom is almost as nice as it is also large and located right next to the second full bathroom that features a walk in shower. The condo has a full kitchen with fridge, microwave, dishwasher, oven/stove; and a laundry room with washer and dryer. Want to chill and watch a movie? There are flat screen TVs in the Living Room and bedrooms and Netflix is live! DVD players too. Need to stay connected? There is a very good Internet service with a dedicated router and WiFi right in the condo. Yes, you can stream a movie! Recent renovations include a full kitchen re-do, all new appliances including washer/dryer, new LED lighting, new fans throughout including the patio/deck, new living room furniture, new beds, stronger WiFi router, Cubie alarm clocks with charging ports for devices, etc. Door access is by a personal door lock code so there are no keys to manage, distribute, carry around, and lose...which also increases security since keys cannot be copied.

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 Puerto Peñasco Municipality

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.

Well, you do here! On a busy weekend, you can watch ultralights going by, jet skis on the water, kids playing in the pools and on the beach, banana boats going by, horses riding by...all right there! Beach vendors down by the water, but on the other side of a line in the sand so they are not in your face unless you want them to be. Massages right there on the beach! You cannot help but smile!

                                                                          We love The Princesa, and this particular condo was very nice. It is beautiful and very clean with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The upgraded bathrooms are so nice. We loved the comfortable firm king sized beds and the plush comforters and towels. My husband loved the George Foreman grill, and I really liked the stove and cookware. We cooked chicken and shrimp, as well as pancakes and eggs, and everything came out perfect. The balcony overlooks the ocean. It’s a spectacular view. It was nice to have TVs and DVD players in all rooms as well as Netflix and a Keruig. I used the treadmill in the fitness center and faced the ocean while I jogged; how cool is that?! The condo is equipped with its own washer and dryer as well. Everything is nice and updated. There are at least 3 pools and 1 was heated, and there are some hot tubs, too. There is a restaurant on the premises, although we didn’t eat there. I did see lots of people eating on the restaurant patio in the morning. The beach is beautiful with soft white sand. We’ve seen dolphins, starfish, octopus, and sea cucumbers. We were there in March so the ocean water was a tad colder than at other times. There are vendors on the beach selling pina coladas, mangos on a stick, jewelry, and souvenirs. There are people that can braid your hair or put on a henna tattoo for a very inexpensive price. The local people are warm and friendly, and work hard. There are water sports such as fishing, boating, jet skis, some kind of glider things, and there are quads to rent in town. Downtown there’s shopping, and of course, lots of places to buy fish and shrimp. It’s a shrimping town, so the shrimp is fresh out of the ocean, is fabulous, and inexpensive. There is another shopping strip where they sell souvenirs as well. There are at least 3 or more Thrifty Ice-cream places, which my kids love! There are many great places to eat. We ate at Sr. Amigo with our window next to the ocean. The food was delicious. Mariachis sang at our table. We also ate at Lucas for chicken for lunch. It’s an airy large hut with good food. There are beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the ocean. At night you can see the lights of the shrimping boats on the ocean. On the other side of the town, the beaches are more rocky, but there are cool tidal pools with lots of gorgeous shells. There is an aquarium you can visit for a small fee. There is security at the condo, and we felt completely safe everywhere throughout. We will definitely be back!

It is also very rewarding to hear that the investments in upgrades and high quality furnishings and supplies are noticed and appreciated. You were a pleasure to host and we hope you come back often. Cheers!

The cleaning crew forgot to fill the water bottle, I emailed Gord and he called the condo within minutes and had the problem fixed. Thank you for letting my family stay at your home away from home. The condo was furnished well and had plenty of dishes and extras. We enjoyed having the bogie boards to use at the beach and they even had a cooler and volley ball in the condo for us to use. If you need a two bedroom condo to stay at I would highly recommend this one. The view was amazing and it was like staying at my home versus staying at a hotel. Thank you again for the wonderful accommodations.
