The second upstairs bedroom has a queen size bed and the garage level master bedroom has a full size bed. The downstairs (3-car garage level) Master Bedroom opens out to the Gated courtyard and has an inside stair access to the upper level. The upper level opens out to the large back yard which is ideal for BBQ or for sand lot volley ball, badmitten, horseshoes, etc.

It is a short 2 minute walk to the waters edge at the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

About Valeria Andrews

As a Surveyor I have always had a passion for land and land rights in various parts of the world, hence property in Mexico. My entire family is bi-lingual English/Spanish and we have 4 dogs and a cat that is respected by all the canines. We have a vacation home in the forest at 7000 feet ABSL and this wonderful Ocean retreat with unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez aka Gulf of California.

Valeria Andrews purchased this house in 2000

Why Valeria Andrews chose Las Conchas

I chose this location to build my dream home because of the natural beauty of the Sea of Cortez, the clean safe beach, and proximity to my Arizona primary home. Property has historically been affordable in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) and when properly managed, the cost of construction can be reasonable. Crossing the Border, for me, is a natural high knowing the cultural differences and the freedom from the routine.

What makes this house unique

The beach community is special and most of the time there are enough people to enjoy some social contact if you choose but there is also ample opportunity for quiet solace. The beach access is only a short walk downhill (2 - 3 minutes). On most weekends and all Holidays there are Vendors of hats, jewelry, etc. as well as horses, banana boats, and parasail rides. Sand and shells and sounds of sea birds with ocean breezes and occasionally passing dolphins, sea lions or a whale can add excitement to your beach experience. Raft and kayaks are available to use.

not a good rental

  • 2 of 5

dirty, so cluttered, bad 3rd bedroom in basement. guess i'm spoiled . this is priced way too high for what you get.

examples: rusty outdoor chairs and table, didn't want to touch, railings on balcony were 1/2 inch thick , , hadn't been wiped down in a long time.

every cabinet in kitchen was so cluttered, no space to put any groceries, lots of little "junk" around, bathroom shelves has tons of small sea shells, with dust 1/2 inch thick underneath the shells, , wasn't pretty. 2 rolls of toilet paper for 3 bathrooms and no spare rolls.

we knew ahead of time there was no tv, but again, for the price, this was not a good deal at all.

Very disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The property was listed as three bedrooms however one bedroom was in the basement in the garage. The fumes from the garage were too unbearable to sleep in the bedroom. They actually made one of us vomit.

The home has super old furniture and linens and it's clearly not used very often so it smells musty and old.

The bed linens were dirty. There was barely any hot water, more like Luke warm. The house looked like it had not been dusted in years. The master toilet kept overflowing into the floor from the tank so we had to keep the valve off between flushes.

Was very sad because this house is in an amazing location! We had an amazing time when we were not in the home!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Labor day weekend mini vacation was excellent. This home was spotless and welcoming. We felt right at home. Hone was clean, wverything worked and was super secured. We had plenty of space to park our cars inside the gate. Really short distance from the beach. Short distance from restaurants and malecon. Everyone was super friendly from the guards to other renters and neighbors.

Great property!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us! With direction from the security guards we were able to find the house easily. The access to the beach was very close. We truly enjoyed our time there.

Great place for our fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic Rocky Point weekend, made perfect by the house which had everything we needed and more. Clean, comfortable with all the kitchen tools and dishes we needed. One street off the beach with easy access, spent most of the time when in the house on the porch- no complaints at all, hope we can rent it again, Thank You!
