About the property

Luxurious 2 Bedm Direct Oceanfront Condo w/ DISH and WI-FI!

Do you enjoy sitting on a balcony sipping morning coffee while watching the sun slowly rise or sipping a leisurely glass of wine while watching a glorious sunset over the Sea of Cortez? If so, a relaxing vacation at Encanto Living (Enchanted) is the place for you. Just a few miles down the beach from the quaint Mexican fishing village of Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco), this stunning, private, gated community is located on Playa Miramar (Miramar Beach), a quiet secluded beach away from all traffic and noise. Playa Miramar is absolutely pristine with unbelievable shell collecting. You can stroll for miles and encounter tide pools and an occasional great heron. Dolphin sightings are common and the pelican patrols are delightful.

From this lavish yet affordable oceanfront resort you can hear the waves lapping at the shore and savor gentle Sea of Cortez ocean breezes while staying connected with all the courtyard activities. Encanto Living was developed by the same family that developed all of the Mayan resorts throughout Mexico, so quality, perfection and amenities abound. The Grand Lobby has soaring 15-foot ceilings and indoor fireplaces. The pool area is lushly landscaped with a heated infinity pool, sun loungers, oceanfront whirlpool spas, private cabanas, outdoor fireplaces, assigned shaded parking, fitness center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and free weights, steam room with his and her facilities, multi-function community room, tennis and basketball courts and a self-serve pool bar & grill. The resort has 24 hour security and on-site English and Mexican property management.

This is a 2 bdrm/2.5 bath unit, but I also have a 1B/1B in this complex. Rent both for larger families, or if you need a smaller unit. The VRBO number is 761969.

From its enormous terrace, your majestic condo has 180 degree views of the Sea of Cortez and Miramar Beach. With over 2000 square feet of living area, this condo, which can accommodate up to 6 people, has 2 master bedrooms and 2.5 baths. A soothing Jacuzzi tub is located in the Grand Master suite. The fully stocked modern kitchen is complete with granite counter tops and GE stainless steel appliances. The condo has a full size washer and dryer. Internet Wi-Fi, premium Direct TV and free phone to the US are added features. No water issues here. Encanto has its own water purification system with water coming from deep mountain wells.

Encanto Living is near the Mayan Palace, which is an easy walk along the beach or a 5 minute drive away. There you can enjoy pool side margaritas, casual and fine dining. Their fabulous restaurant offers a fantastic Sunday brunch as well as excellent lunch and dinner menus. A Jack Nicholas premier Golf Course is there as well. Many water tour activities can be secured at the Mayan such as fishing, whale watching and trips to Bird Island for snorkeling.

A 20 minute drive takes you to Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco) where you can explore the fish market and shops in Old Port, or enjoy the conveniences of a Sam's Club and Rocky Point’s version of Wal-Mart (Bodega Aurelia). If you fancy the work of Mexican artisans, a visit to Cholla Mall is a must.

About Marco Pellegrini

The owners currently live in Arizona and are originally from Washington state and Italy. We greatly missed the water and found it was easy to obtain, only 5 hours from Phoenix. We find it an easy drive from Phoenix and one day, when we retire, plan to live there.

Marco Pellegrini purchased this condo in 2011

Why Marco Pellegrini chose Rocky Point

We investigated all the properties in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point). We decided that we did not like the massive density of the large condo hotel complexes on Sandy Beach. We love the charm and pristine environment of Encanto as well as the onsite staff and management. They treat us and our guests with courtesy and were an important part of our decision to purchase. The community is friendly and if you stay awhile you will be greeted by name. The pool is very large and we love the large lobby and selection of reading materials. The outdoor spaces are verdant with plants and greenery and perfectly maintained.

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to the Mayan Palace and Grand Mayan, the golf course and the airport are just a few of the unique benefits. We have no beach vendors and you can relax beachfront without being disturbed. Our beach is the best for shell collecting and tide watching. You can bring a fishing pole and possibly catch your dinner! We have seen an owner do do it almost daily!

Two weeks on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall a good experience. The unit is large and has a great ocean view. This unit was clean and in fair repair given the age of the unit. It has a washer and dryer, good water pressure and good air conditioning. Access to the facilities of the nearby Grand Mayan is a real plus. The golf course at the nearby Mayan Palace is a must if you are a golfer. Overall I would recommend this unit. The owners were very easy to work with.

Enjoyable and relaxing family friendly resort.

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by the accommodations and overall appearance of the oceanfront resort. I loved the pools and the private beach. The resort was a little out of the way and the closest town was about 30 to 40 minutes away. That was the only down side to out stay. I wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return very soon. Would highly recommend the resort for those seeking to have a relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle.

Very relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time..the place is clean, quiet and very relaxing. You have the beach all to yourself. The only thing is down town is about 15 miles away, good thing we came prepared and had food with us otherwise, Mayan Palace is closed by. It was a good vacation and we are probably will return again.

Just the getaway we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, twin daughters and visiting sister went down to Puerto Penasco during Spring Break, desperately needing a break. We were expecting to have to deal with a ton of loud, drunk college spring breakers and hoping to find some peace and quiet. This condo gave us all of that and more. Located near Mayan Palace, away from the more crowded tourist areas, this place had everything we needed. The condo is beautiful, wonderfully furnished and stocked, and has tons of space. We had a minor issue with the lock on the door not working, which the condo staff took care of by the next day, with a fairly minor inconvenience to us. It was a perfect getaway, and we definitely plan on returning!

Private Beach Front Property at its best on the Sea of Cortez

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year staying in this unit! Full modern kitchen, large dining room and great room. Lots of linen and comfortable beds and furniture. Full size laundry. The view is to die for and pools, hot tubs, gas grills and fire pits. It is 15 miles out of town which I enjoy the privacy and miles of beach and shells with very few people. I take a trip to town once a week. Buy shrimp and fish, go shopping, get groceries and have lunch, always glad to get back to Encanto Living. The unit is better then the pictures, tv in both bedrooms and greatroom. I hope I will be able to go back again. Love the peace and quiet. Thank you Susan and Marco for sharing your condo with me.

Beautiful condo with great beach access

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay at Encanto. Didn’t realize it wasn’t on sandy beach but ended up being awesome. No hassle on the beach from vendors. No resteraunts but there was a lady selling drinks and some food. Bring all the food you need and will be fine.
