"Our stay at “Toro Rojo” was absolutely outstanding. The house is huge! Every bedroom has it’s own full bath. As soon as we entered into the house, we were presented with a large open floor plan that spans from the kitchen to the left, across the dining room, through the family room, and into the master bedroom. All of this overlooks the Sea of Cortez through sliding floor to ceiling windows. The family room, MB, and outside patio area all have a TV and you can hook your phone, IPOD, etc into the stereo, so listening to your favorite music station, playlist, Pandora, etc was a great option. There is full Direct TV cable, but to be honest, we only really used it for the music channels or a quick catch-up on the news. The house is very clean, tastefully decorated, private, and has central air. Everything is 110v so all your electronics from the U.S. will work. There is a large grill and outside bar area right by the pool. The Jacuzzi flows into the pool below via a wonderful waterfall and both can be lighted at night, which adds a great amount of ambience! There’s plenty of lounge furniture along with a patio table with chairs that includes an umbrella, which we utilized a lot because hanging out by and in your own private saltwater pool overlooking the Sea of Cortez was the plan-of –the-day!
This amazing home is located near the top of a large hill that rises steeply up from the marina and is sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. There is only one controlled entry/exit point to this exclusive community, which has a guard shack that is manned continuously. There’s also a continuous roving patrol. Due to the excellent location, we chose to walk down the hill several times so we could enjoy all the views and the architecture of the other homes. Catch the sunrise in the morning at the house, then walk to the backside of the hill and catch beautiful sunsets in the evening. If you choose, you can walk down the backside of the hill to a private beach on the Pacific Ocean.
The staff is exceptionally friendly, helpful, and connected. They took care of everything! From cleaning the pool and house to setting up desired activities with better discounts than you would normally get, to groceries if desired (you pay), to homemade margaritas upon our arrival.
In closing, our stay was incredible and worth every penny. When we return, we will stay here again! Stay here! You will not be disappointed! Mark and Brian are the BEST!!!"
