About The Owner

I am Kathy Mazel, a daughter, a sister to 10 other siblings, a mom to two daughters and grandmother to six. Raised in Tucson and lived there full time until choosing to make Rocky Point my main home. I live in Rocky Point now most of the time. I love taking care of the villa for our family and guests. We think family! We enjoy sharing this special villa home with other family and friend gatherings. Our Villa is directly on the beach front in the most desired area of Las Conchas on the far east end. Originally built in 1985 and with continuous renovations and additions of an on going symphony, as we are never through. A traditional Mexican Home in design and architecture ,with a large courtyard with overhangs, potted plants and cozy atmosphere on a pristine beachfront. A home of gathering, that’s Madre Del Mar. That is what we wanted to build and we blessed to be able to do so.

Madre Del Mar is a beautiful very large home taking in 4,500 square feet under roof and twice that in parking and courtyards, all walled in.

You will love visiting with us ' Me Casa es su Casa ' as we say here in Mexico. Our love for family gatherings is enhanced with our special free services that we offer in concierge servicing for all kinds of activities for water sports, cruises, spa, beauty and golf. We are available to assist to help make your vacation memorable.

Why The Owner chose Puerto Penasco

Our family chose to build a home here due to the pristine beach front, the quiet serene atmosphere and only 4 hours from Tucson or Phoenix.

What makes this house unique

We are one of the few homes in Las Conchas that is located on what we call the beautiful sandy beach stretch

of NO ROCKS so our guests enjoy stepping down from our steps to a clean beautiful beach front. We are

very close to the mouth of the bird estuary where our guest can take our kayaks for an awesome trip visiting

an area that is grassy and different and the sanctuary of many birds on one end and a oyster farm on the other.

We are also blessed with having a large and quite wonderful coral reef that is visible when we are experiencing

our tide changes during the new-moon and the full-moon fazes each month. During these periods the tides

go out farther than during the mid times and the children love to explore them for crabs, oysters, clams , octopus

and much more. A real adventure for the children and one that teaches so much about life.

Our location is quiet and private. Our villa is gated and walled in. You can be together for gatherings and still have a quiet and secluded area in your own little casita due to how the villa is laid out. Our young families enjoy the coral reefs in our area of the beach, boogie boarding, taking long walks and taking the villa kayaks into the estuary that is only a very distance from our villa. The birds are numerous and we see a great deal of dolphins swimming almost daily from our beach front porches and windows. Lots of elbow room here at the villa. You can be together with your large gathering yet have your own privacy when you choose to due to the accommodating lay out of the villa that was built for allowing for quiet periods when you choose to be alone. We have a large film library and satellite TV, wireless INTERNET access and direct calling to and from the United States.

Wonderful Place for a Special Occasion

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Kathy, the owner, and the beautiful property. I along with 19 of my girlfriends, celebrated my 50th birthday party there last October. Kathy helped to organize an "all inclusive" event with spa treatments, a chef, entertainment, activities, and excursions. Everyone had a great time. I highly recommend Madre Del Mar and Kathy!

A True Mexican Gem

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is a wonderful hostess and human being, a beautiful humanitarian, and one of the most genuine people I have ever met and worked with.

We were fortunate enough to stay here at Madre del Mar during a mission excursion. We had a large group and were able to occupy the entire complex. It was great to have enough space for everybody, the beach at our disposal, and a nice, relaxing, quiet place to go at the end of a hard days work.

The air conditioning went out in the middle of the night in one of our rooms. We called Kathy, and it was fixed by the time we returned. She was very attentive and offered help where it wasn't expected. She went far beyond what was expected or what could have been hoped for in a hostess.

The photos do not do the place justice. It is a beautiful home, and offers a great place for a family reunion, a gathering, vacation, wedding, or just an amazing get away. We have, and will continue to recommend this place to EVERYONE. Can't wait to return!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay with us here at Madre Del Mar and we are very pleased to hear that you will be returning next year for another special mission trip to our community of Puerto Penasco and have chosen again to stay with us. I am looking forward to seeing you on your return trip. Best Regards

Perfect for extended family

  • 5 of 5

We rent a home once a year for a week's vacation somewhere and have been a number of places in the western US. This was our favorite home so far. Everywhere else we have needed to find excursions or something to do every day. Here, we literally just enjoyed the beach (except one fishing trip). We have seven small grandchildren in the group, and they entertained themselves all day. The beach is just amazing and, except at high tide, the slope is very gentle so there is little danger to kids. We usually like to eat out, but we enjoyed eating on the patio so much we only made it out a couple times. The casitas worked perfectly for families with small children because they could be put down for naps undisturbed. The only complaint my family had was that the dryer wasn't working, but the clothes line wasn't so bad. Kathy warned us to wear old tennis shoes in the water in case of stingrays. One person who wasn't wearing shoes got stung, which resulted in some pain and soaking his foot for 90 minutes, but then was fine. We were there during jellyfish season, and one person got stung, which also gave them some pain for an hour or so. There are many people in the water, so this isn't a common problem, just something to be aware of and take precautions for. I think shoes reduce the risk of stingrays, and I got thinking later that a long-sleeve rash guard (water shirt) might handle the jellyfish issue. Overall, the house was just the perfect setup for a group and all 20 beds are actual beds in bedrooms (no hide-a-beds). Kathy set up a huge dining room where we could all be together. I highly recommend this home and would love to come again.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Rocky Point every year and always stay in Las Conchas. This was our first stay at Madre del Mar and it was fantastic! Our group comprised of 3 families and a few friends. The layout of the villas and casitas was perfect for our group, giving everyone their own space but still allowing us to be together. We had everything we needed provided, and loved that the owner allowed us to use her kayaks, boogie boards, life vests, even sand toys for the little ones. This area of the beach is wonderful, and ROCK FREE. Madre del Mar is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it!

Paradise in Peñasco

  • 5 of 5

Kathy (owner) is a wonderful hostess!! She is a beautiful human being, very friendly, inviting, helpful and informative. She made us feel welcomed and opened up her beautiful home to us. All bedrooms have a breathtaking ocean view and their own spacious bathroom. Her kitchen is equipped with all necessary appliances and cookware. There were plenty of towels and toiletries.

Kathy also provided plenty of activities during our stay from boogie boarding to kayaking and information on where you can rent jet skies, quads, horse back riding and "La Banana". She recommended great restaurants and attractions within driving distance if you wish to eat out and explore the town. However, the house was so beautiful and inviting that we stayed in most nights!

The house is in a very safe environment with security patrol and private beaches. The main house is spacious enough for large families and 2 smaller studios on the property are available for small groups as well. We had a party of 15, with ages ranging from 2 years to 91 years young :)

The beach was beautiful and relaxing with clean sand and warm enough water that is inviting to go in. You can also take great walks along the shore and if you're lucky enough as we were, you might catch a glimpse of dolphins enjoying the water. Chairs and umbrellas were available along with sand toys for the little ones. There are a few vendors that walk by throughout the day with affordable prices. And lets not forget the wonderful masseuses that will set up right on the beach for a massage with a spectacular view!

We had such a wonderful time that we decided to extend our stay from 6 to 7 nights and are looking forward to going back soon!!!

Thank you Kathy for sharing your beautiful home and family with us! Blessings from mom:)

Owner's Response: Dear Sonia, It was my pleasure to welcome your family to our villa. It was meant to be that we met. I fell in love with your family and the love that I see that you all share with each other. Come back and see me when ever you can. I already miss you guys. Please give 'grandma' ( mom) a big hug and kiss from me and my daughter Karen and let her know that I teased my mom who is 93 years young into coming down this April with my sister. It takes a lot to get my mom to leave her home in Tucson these days but we finally did it! Love and Blessings to you and your family always. Kathy

Bucklist Check Off!

  • 5 of 5

Every person I know tends to have a list of MUST-Dos before they pass on to the upper room, such as Run with the Bulls in Pamplona, sky dive, etc. This past weekend I was able to check off a couple of bucket list items: Live in an ocean-front mansion and enjoy a cup of coffee while walking with my wife on a private beach. My family and friends were awestruck with the sprawling size of the property and villa. As a previous reviewer noted..."it was like having a mansion on the edge of the Sea of Cortez." Our party rented out a casita and a two-room casa, and both were undersold in their plushness (is that even a word?). The casita was enormous. The kitchen was fully-equipped, and the beds were a sufficient place to rest after a day-long excursion at El Malecon (The Boardwalk). The bathroom was big and nicely tiled. The private beach was that...PRIVATE! I can count on both hands and feet the number of people we saw on the beach during our stay. I have to compliment Kathy on the decor, which was very modern, exuding a homely feel. Personally, I felt like a movie star or better yet, a millionaire, sitting on the beach-side tiled patio, enjoying a drink around an outside fireplace with the sounds of the waves crashing on the sand. Our party was soooo enamored with Madre del Mar that we began planning our return trip on the first night of our stay. It was that FANTABULOUS (Fantastic and Fabulous)!!!!
