There is a sliding glass door opening onto a breezy covered terrace with lots of patio furniture and a gas grill.

This is where you will spend your time taking in ocean views and breezes, sunsets and mountain views.

Three of the 4 spacious bedrooms and two of the bathrooms are on the first floor. Each room has sliding glass doors that open onto, yet another covered terrace and a grassy back yard landscaped with palm trees and Hibiscus and a convenient outdoor shower. One of the first-floor bedrooms is a suite with a queen-sized bed and a private bathroom. This room has a private entrance through the garage and separate climate control unit (split-mini). The other two bedrooms share a large bathroom. One of these bedrooms has a king-sized bed and the other offers sleeping for 4 in a queen bed and a set of bunk beds.

About Pamela Meister

My husband and I have lived in Arizona for 30 years. We love the desert but when we vacation it has to be at the beach! We've been taking our family to San Carlos to vacation for the past 20 years. We rented other homes in the area, so when we were ready to buy we knew where we wanted to be. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to rent homes in Marina Real and are excited to offer our home for you to enjoy.

Pamela Meister purchased this house in 2007

Why Pamela Meister chose Marina Real

Marina Real is a very private gated community, right on the beach. The newest Marina in the area is in our neighborhood and within walking distance to our home. The bay at Marina Real is ideal for water sports, wake boarding, Kayaking, sail boarding and jet skis. We are free divers and are scuba certified- some of the best dive spots are located right here in our bay. You can even dive right off the beach. At the North end of the neighborhood is a vibrant coral and rock outcroping with sealife accessible to divers and snorkelers right off the beach. Did I mention the incredible beach? The beach is just a short walk from our home, bring an umbrella, build a sandcastle and enjoy the sound of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a two story with three terraces. The family room and all 4 bedrooms have glass doors that open on to a terrace. There is room for our now grown children and spouses to join us or for us to bring friends. The backyard is fenced and landscaped with palm trees and grass for kids to play or to wash off your diving gear. The palapa covered roof top terrace provides the best sunset views and ocean breezes all day long. Our vacation home is a peaceful place to retreat from the daily grind and renew by the Sea of Cortez.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with my family. We had a very nice time walking the beach and surrounding neighborhood. It was an incredible view from the rooftop patio. Our favorite place to eat was also Ponchito Villa. It was clean and very fine Mexican food. We also enjoyed Charley's Rock and Salsa Bar, the Salsa bar had live music soft classic rock and enjoyed shrimp cocktail with a margarita, with a nice on the beach location. We plan on returning to San Carlos next year for vacation.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time my family has rented this beautiful beach home. The home is big and spacious in a secure neighborhood with only a 3 minute walk to the best beach in San Carlos. We will definitely be back again.

Perfect accomodations for a restful vacation.

A truly lovely home with spacious rooms and all the amenities one might need for comfort and convenience. The 'roof-top' Palapa is a definite plus and a lovely place to gaze out at the views and the sunsets.

The property was great, just as described. The views from the rooftop were amazing. Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location, it was in a gated community and had security guards. The home was very spacious and had more than enough room for the 7 adults and 3 children. The Balcony on the second floor was nice, but the rooftop canopy was awrsome. It had a great view of the ocean and the ocean breeze was refreshing. The community was a great community, I went for my morning run and had no problems with loose dogs. The beach was within walking distance and it was very clean. The inside of the home was very nice and had everything we needed. Will definitely book again!

Thanksgiving at the beach was AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been travelling to and renting in San Carlos for 20 years. This house is honestly one of the most accommodating houses for a group of 4 couples that we have ever rented. We all had our own bedrooms and didn't have to sleep on futons, twin beds or on a couch like so many rentals in the area. This house has those as options as well which are perfect for children. The beds are very comfortable too! The house is very spacious with an open living room/kitchen great room, huge 2nd story covered patio and great ocean views from the rooftop palapa! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals at the house.

The location is perfect. Whether you want to go hang out on the beach at the Soggy Peso or run to town for some shopping, it's located pretty much right in the middle. The house was very clean and the yard was freshly mowed when we arrived. Pam, the owner, was very pleasant and quick to respond when I had questions prior to our arrival.

My friends, family and I will definitely be staying at this house again in the future!

Upscale, huge house short walk to private beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is huge with 4 bedrooms and then 2 sofa pull out beds in the living room. Entire house is very upscale and fancy, with everything provided. Beautiful sunset views from second story living area and 3rd floor palapa sitting area. ACs work very well to keep us cool and welcome us back from the short walk to the beach. DIshwasher is a plus for big group of people and easy cleanup. Washer and dryer were also a plus to minimize from having to bring too much down. Seems like all non disposable items are included, like kitchen knifes, bottle opener, can opener, plates, coffee cups, water cooler, beach towels, beach umbrellas and chairs. Really seemed to catch everything needed in case you forget something. Things not included (water, soap, disk soap, shampoo) can all be bought very inexpensively at one of the new in-town grocery stores. The management company was very helpful and had the AC turned on to welcome us when we got there, along with classical music playing from the upstairs living space, very nice welcome!

The private beach is like a huge swimming pool with some of the best sand beaches in San Carlos (not super rocky, although there are some new rocks in the beach from the hurricane that hit last year). The beach faces almost exactly due west so as you sit on the beach looking at the ocean, the sun sets directly in front of you. Also, you are a quick 5 minute drive from the painted rock public beach which has some awesome snorkeling and rock collections, a place prized and loved by the locals.

We really enjoyed our stay at this house and will try to return. This house was a good balance of upscale luxury living, that was very family friendly. Several of the smaller kids that were still a little afraid of the beach said their favorite thing was playing in the enclosed, grassy back yard.
