This comfortable, affordable luxury, private, beachfront, fully loaded, Playa Encanto home was built by an American woman of Hispanic descent. The 180! foot private beach assures you privacy, peace and quiet ( NO OTHER Rocky Point beach front rental home offers as much privacy with On-Site 24/7 Security). The home features Mexican artisan hand painted tiles and sinks, along with custom woodwork throughout the house. This beautiful home offers the richness of Mexican culture while providing all the quality upgrades and conveniences of American engineering and construction. The house comfortably sleeps 14 guests, and is perfect for a group of friends or family reunions.

Playa Encanto is an exclusive, pristine, private manned- gated community with large beautiful homes on spacious lots. This secure, family community is free from the commercial development, crowds and noise you find at Sandy Beach or Southern California. The water is so clean and warm you’ll never again consider cold water beach vacations outside the Sea of Cortez!.

Just steps from the water on 180 feet of 'private' beachfront, the home offers many comfortable features to ensure that your family and friends have an unforgettable experience. Five patios surround the house to relax, enjoy the warm Mexican sun, , the sunsets, star gaze, and beautiful views of the water and sky. Pelicans, dolphins, birds of prey are often observed in the area. Sometimes whales and turtles too! Play with your children on the pristine sand of your own beach, build sand castles or play in the surf. Walk along the water’s edge collecting seashells and sand dollars. Grill meals on the patio and enjoy everyone’s company. At the end of the day, relax, have a beverage and view the magnificent sunset. After dark, make a bonfire on the beach and toast marshmallows. Gaze into the night skies at more stars than you have ever seen. At day’s end, fall asleep to the sound of breaking waves outside your bedroom window. Vacations just don’t get better than this!

This luxury home is designed, built and managed with the guest’s comfort and enjoyment in mind. The owner-operator takes great pride in keeping the home unusually well maintained and clean. Every attention to detail and cleanliness is made to assure that your friends and family will have a memorable experience. The large windows in the Great Room provide expansive views and makes you feel as if we've been outdoors 24/7. OR, you can lounge in the bed of your own private suite and still see the ocean!

EACH of the four bedroom SUITES offers comfort and privacy when you have the need for some peace, quiet and additional privacy. EACH spacious bedroom suite has a private bath, sitting area and private walk-out patio. Three bedrooms with ocean views have direct access to the sea. The 4th bedroom has a Garden Patio with a Ping Pong table and related accessories....The Sand and Sea Day Use walk-out "5th bedroom," with it's own Patio, a Q Bed & 2 Twin Beds, and convenient 2 piece bathroom for beach surfers and bonfire enthusiasts, is a wonderful sea-level "light-use" cabana area, to get out of the sun for 'a bit, take a nap, or play cards/board games.... The house is fully equipped for wonderful memories... including FULLY stocked bathrooms and kitchen.

Please don’t forget to bring your own beach towels, passport, sunglasses, sun block, hats/caps, old shoes or sandals, food and beverages, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, camera!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Elena this is the 5th time we have stayed in your lovely home and each time it feels more wonderful. The addition of WIFI and Vonage is going to make it easier for us to stay additional nights in each of our future visits. The house is so wonderfully managed and consistently spotless that it's easy for us to invite family and friends to join us with the same pride as we would have in our own home. We are already looking at our calendar for our next visit! Thank you!

Always a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has been enjoying Elena’s Beach House since 2004. The owner told me she wanted it to be a place where mom’s didn’t have to provide everything, where they could enjoy themselves too and she has done an excellent job of making this house that place. From shampoo & other personal items to puzzles & games; from flashlights in every room & coordinated bath towels to plenty of patio chairs this house has just about everything.

Our last stay was for 5 nights. There was plenty of bottled water and bags full of ice to use. The grill is in great working order and there are 2 refrigerators to store all of our food.

The place is beautiful with lovely tile work throughout. Each bedroom has a theme and it’s own charm as well as it’s own bathroom & TV. Access to the roof provides great star viewing. Playa Encanto is a quiet beach and the security guards patrol the beach at night regularly.

We return to the house yearly because it’s beautiful, well kept and the owner is responsive and easy to work with.

Perfect multi-family stay!

  • 4 of 5

Three families stayed for a beach vacation. It is the perfect set up for all of our families to stay together, put the kids to bed and still be able to stay up and play games with the other adults. The house is in a fantastic location with a quick walk to the uncrowded beach. The sand is soft, the water was warm and when tide was low it created a little island the kids loved playing on! Neighbors are very friendly and the vendors were respectful. The house is very comfortable and very well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We did feel a little stressed trying to make sure we followed all of the house rules, many just written on note cards throughout the house. We were incredibly respectful of the house and left it clean and tidy, yet still were told we left things unsatisfactorily. Even so, we did receive our full security deposit refunded promptly. Most importantly, the views are amazing, the patios are relaxing and the home is comfortable and accommodating. We would definitely stay again!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Elena's house on the beach. The house is well appointed, well maintained and was ready for our arrival. It really was like a home away from home. We cannot say enough nice things about Elena and the house. We will most definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Kristin, It's GREAT! having a "new" family join the beach fun. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I'm very glad to hear you are "already-ready" to visit again! If you can, please text or email me a beach picture, of your family . I wish I had started a "family" wall from the day I started renting the home in 2006 as the long ago "little ones" when they the visit the beach once or twice a year, are now taller than me! In the spring, let me about your next September plans :). Enjoy! Elena

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a number of different houses on Playa Encanto and this one was the best yet. Everything that we needed was there. When we go back next year, provided our group is the right size, we will be staying here again!

This house is amazing with an amazing view out the main room

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. Bedrooms all look out to the beach a big nice main room and plenty of tables for games or eating. It has plenty of patio space too. We loved the huge window from the main room. It just felt like the ocean was in the front room. The amenities were great and all the little extras they provide for you is amazing. We loved playing ping pong and just relaxing. The bathrooms are very nice and one for every room. Can't talk enough about this house. I give it 5 stars. Loved it and thank you Elena. It's beautiful

Owner's Response: Wow! Your wonderful review 'almost! left me speechless! Thank you! Much appreciated! I thought the highest compliment of the home was the high percentage of long time guests that have repeatedly trusted and enjoyed the home for their familys' cherished memories...BUT! Your review is ESPECIALLY complimentary because you took the time and effort, as a first time guest with "fresh eyes," to remind EVERYONE! that's visited the home, of the special memories they've created there too!...and... Bravo! and Welcome! to future guests too! Again, thank you 'June 18th' for the great review... I look forward to hearing from you again, Enjoy!

Excellent property. Home completely stocked for vacation families. Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Elena does a tremendous job of stocking this beautiful property. The home is neat and tidy... and well decorated. Many improvements (like main room bathroom), and home refurbished. Elena more than stocks water and all personal needs items. There are even extra swimsuits, play toys, etc! Love this property and the lady who lets us stay there.
