Las Conchas House Rental Photos and Description

6 bdrms, 10 queen beds, 6 bthrms, 4 kitchens, 2 great rooms, all amenities

Madre Del Mar is a unique villa compound that has been advertising with VRBO network for over 12 years with carrying outstanding ratings. We have been a-part of helping VRBO growth and success. Due to the uniqueness of our villa personal services, configurations and options for our guests plus the many choices we have with serving our guests, we can not take on line bookings and we were sorry to learn that in 2016 VRBO will be changing their business practices with limitations that are for streamlining all bookings with less choices / options along with payments with Credit Card on line only, which brings with it cost increases for both home owner and guest. VRBO /HomeAway is moving into being like a travelosity / booking agents for condos and homes. We are finding it difficult fitting in. Madre Del Mar is just different.... and we choose to work directly with our guests and maintain flexibility and offer personable attention and service that is comforting to both our guests and ourselves. We do have our own website on line... I hope you will check it out. Madre Del Mar, Rocky Point Mexico. Thank you for understanding. Madre del Mar is truly a Vacation Rental by the Owner.

We built a unique villa for large or small gatherings with 'family' being our focus! There are many unusual features found here that make gatherings comfortable. You can even chose how much of the villa you wish to book for your size gathering. Madre del Mar is what Mexico tradition is all about and sits directly on the water front on the beachfront of the Sea of Cortez ( Gulf of Calif) in a gated community of 'Las Conchas', on the east end close to the bird estuary. Family gatherings of all sizes up to 20 persons. Your event with family and friends will have SPACE to provide peace and serenity with lots of elbow room, private quarters, quiet water front getaway from the crowded condos/resorts. Book any portion of the villa that suites your needs.

The beautiful Old Mexican architecture and cozy atmosphere of our villa and the courtyard is relaxing and refreshing of your spirit. The beautiful pristine beach, the gentle breezes and soft surf welcomes you. The feeling that ' I have been here before' comes about you. Sit on our front porch and enjoy the dolphins at play. Peaceful family environment is what we are about with lots of rooms and space for the times when you want the quiet of the lazy afternoon. Our villa is all walled in for privacy with parking for up to 6 vehicles inside our compound.

With having 4 homes that make up the one villa.... are able to offer our guests a special treat ( if the gathering size is large) of having 4 kitchens so that they can have privacy for small family units to be able to take care of children's needs easier. This villa is a 'house of gathering' and has the quality features needed for families.

The large center wooden door between The two town homes can be opened up to create one large home and with the high wood beam ceilings (18' up) creates a beautiful open and warm feeling to the villa's great room areas.

Madre Del Mar is decorated in the old Mexico tradition of family living. Time honored in design and very colorful, with many porches and shaded areas surrounding the full beachfront with many windows with open ocean views through out, with all bedrooms having beach and ocean views too. As our guests here at our villa, we offer our services to make sure your stay is just what your wanting it to be with concierge services and if problems arise we are here to help you as someone comes here daily to check with you on any needs that may arise.

Family reunions are among our favorite bookings, intimate weddings or Spiritual / church retreats. We are open fall, winter, spring and most of the summer.

Thank you for visiting.... See our main website, for more information and photos.

It is listed on the internet under our name Madre Del Mar. Just type in Madre del Mar, Rocky Point Mexico.

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 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!

Family birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the beautiful courtyard and through the door, we felt at home! Comfortable, beautifully furnished, and the incredible beach as our view from every window. Kathy, the owner, is a wonderful person, who is thoughtful and very accommodating.

I highly recommend this gem on the beach. You won't be disappointed. We were sad to leave but look forward to a return in 2017.

Favorite place to relax in rocky point!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Kathy's beautiful home 3 times and look forward to a return visit in October 2015. We have gone with family and friends and also celebrated a bridal shower for one of our girls. We had a chef and masseuse come in to help with the event and it was perfect! Each visit holds wonderful memories! The layout is perfect for multi family groups, as everyone can have their own space. The main kitchen and living room area is very large and has plenty of room for large or smaller groups. The extra casitas on top are perfect for those that want more privacy. The beach is beautiful and quiet. Kathy is very helpful with tips for your visit , if it is your first time. We usually go into town one day to shop and have lunch, though we prefer to be at the house for the majority of the time. You can even do some shopping on the beach from local vendors and they are respectful of your space if you do not want to be bothered. A great way to get some local trinkets or fresh tortillas while enjoying the beach! The kitchen has everything you need to prepare all of your meals and the sunsets are amazing! We cant wait to return!

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!!!

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.

A TWO NIGHT BOOKING may be honored with a small additional nightly charge..

In booking at the villa you can rent less than the full villa compound. When renting at least 3 of the 4 homes that make up the villa compound we do not rent the 4th home so that you can maintain privacy for your gathering. All
All damage deposits are paid in full upon arrival ( cash) and given back upon departure after we check the villa with you. If you can not wait for this process we will send your deposit back. If you can wait, allow up to 1 hour before your departure and let us know that you would like us to check the villa with you. If there are damages we will discuss this with you and take monies from damage deposit to pay for replacement or being fixed. Thank you for understanding.

All Homes at the villa are air conditioned starting in late spring for comfort. We are running 1700 tons of air. So when air is not needed and your cost is over $850.00 a night (no Holiday) for the full villa booking, with your count of persons being 16-20 maximum, we will work with you on a discount for not having to use air conditioning.

ALL bookings are subject to price changes before confirmed. We reserve the right to cancel any booking and return the deposit. Special events held at the villa are subject to additional fees. Maximum persons allowed for any event is 30 -50 total persons with written permission from Kathy.

Deposit for your stay is usually equal to the cost of the 1st night plus cleaning. If we ask for more than that amount then your party is a larger group than 16-20 persons. If you do need to cancel your stay, the deposit is refunded AFTER we have been able to obtain a booking for the same dates. Most of our bookings are 2-6 months in advance when they are a full villa booking and if canceled and it is too late to obtain another booking we need to be able to keep the deposit. All balance due ( for your stay) payments are arranged with you for your convenience.
