About Barbara Collins
My husband and I grew up in New England moved west to Vail' Colorado and enjoyed the skiing until we retired to Tucson. Our next adventure started when we discovered Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point). We stayed one night in one of the condos and bought a place the next day. That was in 2006. We love the area, the sea, the people and that fact that it takes less then four hours the get there. VRBO has allowed us to share this beautiful spot with others.
Barbara Collins purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Barbara Collins chose Rocky Point
We traveled to rocky point in 2006, stayed one night and purchased our condo. We have enjoyed it so much with our family and friends. It is beautiful and peaceful and every month e experience something different. Sandy Beach is wonderful, it is clean and The water is so clear that you can see your toes in it, also we often see dolphins.
What makes this Condo unique
We are only 3-4 hours from Phoenix and from Tucson. Nice to be that close to the Sea of Cortez!

Sept 5 thru 9
Sunday morning we noticed that it seemed to be getting warm in the condo. I looked at the thermostat and the display was blank and I could not get it to respond. I went to the phone to call and it did not work so I walked down to the desk and they informed me that I had to contact the owner. When I returned to the condo, the AC was working fine.
We went out Sunday evening and returned around 11PM. Again the AC was not working and has not since then. It is now 9:30 Monday morning and we are getting ready to check out shortly. Otherwise, had a great stay.
Three major issues that caused an inconvenience, unsafety and danger
Nice location of the building at Sandy Beach, and also enjoyed the central location of the unit — right across the pools. The view from unit was beautiful.
Having had discovered 3 (THREE) major, unacceptable issues that sadly, turned our whole stay into an unpleasant, inconvenient and unsafe one.
ISSUE 1 — (has been already addressed to the owner, and already appreciated their consideration to compensate us for that issue). It was the wrong info on the Network Name, and therefore the wrong password that has been provided by owner. As a result— absence of any access to the Internet during our whole stay, that led us, as business owners ourselves to the loss of some of our business and clients that we had to conduct during our stay.
ISSUE 2— the front door lock with the given code— DOESN’T LOCK THE DOOR. As a result—the door was NEVER locked during our whole stay. That kept our unit UNLOCKED every time we left the unit, and therefore understandably me and my husband UNSAFE every time we were out. The video of that broken lock is available to demonstrate the issue.
ISSUE 3— The “about to explode” light above the patio put my husband into severe danger when he was resting on the double chaise lounge. The recessed light fixture—outfitted, with the old and outdated CFL bare light constantly crackled and flashed on and off... like it was close to exploding every time I turned on the switch. That left my husband and myself not only in complete darkness out on the patio (and therefore inability to read/ nor see), but also put us in a very dangerous hazardous situation. The video of that spooky hazardous broken light on the patio— is also available to demonstrate the issue.
We, as good citizens ourselves, would not want to put others through the same unsafe issues that this unit displayed during our stay, and therefore— negatively affected our whole experience.
We truly hope for the consideration on an additional compensation on the described above issues as well— ISSUE 2 and ISSUE 3— that brought us another TWO unsafe, and dangerous problems that affected our stay in even more disappointing, unsafe, and very dangerous way.
Easy trip from Tucson. The condo was exactly as advertised and the views were amazing. We actually got to see dolphins jumping out of the water. Spent two whole days relaxing on the beach. Easy walk to restaurants nearby or a quick cab ride to Las Conches for dinner. Will definitely come back. Barbara was very responsive and easy to work with. For some odd reason, the GPS brings you to a resort two streets down but the gate attendant was helpful in redirecting us.
Great beach access and very comfortable condo. Owner was very responsive.
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your property. It was a very pleasure stay. Hope to be able to stay there again.
Great condo with amazing views
Our family of 4 just spent 3 nights here and loved our vacation! The condo was clean and spacious and the location was great. The ocean view was perfect. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was good. Thanks for a great stay!
