About Nicole Englert
As a family of four we wanted to create life-long memories with our children after growing up around water (Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri and the Jersey Shore). We first visited Puerto Penasco together as ASU college students, but we were sold on Playa Encanto after visiting this hidden gem with long-time family friends. We regularly maintain and update our home so that we and our guests have a relaxing beach experience.
Nicole Englert purchased this House in 2007
Why Nicole Englert chose Playa Encanto
The beach of Playa Encanto (Voted best beach in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) is private, safe and peaceful. Perfect for swimming, exploring for shells, and relaxing as you watch the dolphins swim by. We completely remodeled and expanded our beach home after purchasing in 2007. The expansive tide differential (3rd largest in the world) and absolutely the most beautiful sunsets drew us in to make this property our second home. We fell in love with the warmer waters that can be as calm as a lake (perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding) or on windy days our girls surf and boogie board.
What makes this House unique
The proximity of this beach community to our Gilbert Arizona home makes longer weekend trips as well as school break vacations more affordable. In all honesty, the expansive beachfront, warm waters and colorful sunsets remind us every time we return exactly why we bought this home. Oh and if you get a chance to see a full moon rise over the Sea of Cortez or the twinkling star lit sky during the new moon cycles they are truly treasured sights among our family and friends.

Loved this awesome house! 5 stars *****
We had a women's weekend just relaxing on the beach. This house was perfect in every way. I love the bright colors everywhere. Sitting on the patio watching the tide go out with my cup of coffee (ok, a cocktail..), was just amazing. We went for long walks as if we were the only people around. Loved it.
It is so nice to hear what you enjoyed most about your stay. I would agree that the privacy of such an expansive beach is unmatched by any I have ever been to including Hawaii. Thank you for your review.
Great time at the beach!
Had a wonderful spring break at this house. Shared with a couple of families. Not sure who had more fun, the adults or the kids. House is well equipped plenty of deck space. Owner was responsive. Luisa the caretaker catered a meal for us one night, plenty of wonderful food. The security was friendly, it felt very safe. Even though this is supposedly one of the busier weeks of the year we felt like we had our own private beech. Take a cooler and visit the oyster farm.
Thank you for the review and we are glad you had such a fun family trip.
The perfect house for beach lovers
This house was the perfect getaway space for our recent vacation. We were a group of 11 adults looking to get away, relax, and just chill out. The house has enough room for everyone to have their own space, but was also well set up for easy flow of kitchen/dining/living room/porches for when we wanted to spend time together. The beach is beautiful....clean, not at all rocky, and just steps from the back porch. The owners were easy to get in contact with and gave us all of the information we needed to make our stay a pleasant one. And the views from the rooftop - especially for sunrise and sunset - were phenomenal!
Thank you for your review of our home. We are glad that others can enjoy the beauty of the Sea if Cortez just steps from the patio and the roof top deck. The sunsets are stunning!
This place is fantastic! It’s everything it promises from the house to the private beach!
We brought two families from Montana and this was our first homeaway experience and it was as perfect. We were all able to find enough places to sleep, plenty of bathrooms and a great shared kitchen, dining and living room. The outdoor patio and beach were everything we hoped for.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and after traveling from so far away. We hope that if you ever plan to return to Rocky Point you will contact us again.
Great Family Destination Location
We loved the house and location. The ease of access to the beach was wonderful. It was nice to have patio furniture available for our use. We would have liked to have kitchen and bathroom towels available in the house.
Beautiful, Beach-front, Family Vacation Home!
We absolutely loved our vacation to Rocky Point in this home! We had eight adults and six kids, and this home was the perfect spot for us to all enjoy quality, relaxed time together. We had plenty of space to spread out, and for the kids to take naps throughout the day. The location is right on the beach, and the area feels more secluded and less crowded. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the front patio was a perfect setting for meals and just casually hanging out together. We owners of the home were kind, responsive, and very easy to work with. The time flew by, and we can't wait to come back again someday!
