Villa Venezia is your Mexico vacation paradise. Located on Playa Encanto in Puerto Penasco, Mexico. Villa Venezia has so many luxurious amenities...you’ll never have to leave the beach!
Perfect for large groups of people; Villa Venezia can comfortably accommodate up to 18 guests.
Villa Venezia is a gated beach-front compound with a courtyard. It consists of a 4-bedroom beach-front home and a rear 2-bedroom guest unit. We allow rental options of only the beach-front house or of the whole compound. We will only rent to one group at a time.
The beach-front house is a 3,800 sq. ft. split unit with two fully functional kitchens, 2 living/dining spaces downstairs, 6 full bathrooms, and 4 bedrooms upstairs, two of which are master suites. The master bedrooms have beach views, King sized beds, wood-burning fireplaces, large walk-in closets and a shared balcony that stretches across the width of the house. The expansive balcony provides phenomenal views of the Sea of Cortez and the gorgeous sandy beaches that encompass it. The other two bedrooms have two Queen beds each, walk-in closets and private bathrooms. All bedrooms and living spaces have air-conditioning & heat. Winding staircases on the balcony lead you to a margarita roof deck to enjoy yet more amazing views. Windows line both the upper and lower floors allowing the experience of the water and waves to flow into the house, not to mention the wonderful ocean breezes. You can enjoy those in the house by opening up all the windows or just by sitting out on the covered patio. We also have outdoor showers to wash off all that sand.
The rear two-bedroom guest house is 1500 sq. ft. with limited ocean views. It also has a fully functioning kitchen, living/dining space, laundry room (accessible only if entire compound is rented). The master bedroom also has a fireplace, walk-in closet, and a large private balcony with beautiful, (although more limited), ocean views. To get a full glimpse of the tranquil sea, take the winding staircase from the balcony to the Margarita roof deck, one of the best places to sit back and take in a beautiful Mexico sunset.
All living spaces have at least 1 television (video game compatible), a DVD player, satellite, and wi-fi Internet connection (password to be provided)

We are a loving Italian family. Both my wife and I were born in Italy (hence the name 'villa venezia') My wife, Clara and I bought this house with our son, Domenick and his family. He has a beautiful wife, Jaime, and two adorable kids. We bought this house as a great place to make memories with our entire family.
Frank Montanile purchased this house in 2006
We used to use a timeshare to come visit this area (Mayan Palace) and fell in love. One rainy day - with not much to do we decided to take a drive. We stumbled upon this beachfront neighborhood and found this gem just dying for us to rescue it. We now love spending every chance we have with our family in this beach house.
Not only is this a beautiful beach town but the locals are so wonderful and a good majority of the neighbors on our beach are all from Phoenix. We are like little family out here!
Aside from all the amenities listed, I have to say what a wonderful place to make memories this is. I recently celebrated my 60th birthday, and we had family fly in from as far as New York. Sisters, brothers, neices, nephews, cousins, babies....there is room for everyone. There is so much privacy to this house but yet so much space to come together and socialize that there is a fit for everyone in every moment of the day. We had over 24 people in the house that week and it never once felt like it was over crowded.
Worked well for our group. Would have been helpful to know locations of closest food and drink places. Should have towels in property. Fire pit should be removed if open wood fires are not allowed.
Our 2nd time staying at this property and it was as Magical as the first. The property shows signs of age but it's perfect for a family get together like ours and the location away from the city feels safe and the scenery is amazing.
This was our first visit to Playa Encanto and Villa Venezia. We had a wonderful time! Frank was a great host and was very responsive. The beach was fairly quiet, and was all sand with no rocks, which was great for the kids. The actual property is like 3 separate 2 story condos each with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen and family room. Two of them face the beach with a shared patio, and one is in the back. We enjoyed barbecuing, searching for shells, and gathering together. The drive into town is slightly further compared to Las Conchas but we generally only go into two a couple times so it's not a big deal. We had a great time and would love to come back again! Thank you!
We often go to Puerto Penasco, usually every year. This happened to be the first time that we stayed in a beach front home, and we all loved it. The beach at this home was quiet, clean, and didn't have vendors constantly passing by. We all enjoyed a banana boat ride, a mango, and massages. While there are not many vendors, they do still pass by occasionally to offer something you may need. The patio and beach view was definitely the best part of the home.
The home itself was modest but sufficient, and everything in the home seemed to work well. Our stay was 5 star rated, but I have the home 4 stars overall. I really would have loved to have had some towels provided and fresh drinking water in all the units. There were also some ants in both units. These were all relatively minor issues.
If you're looking for a beautiful, spacious property equipped with everything you could possibly need, then this is it! The property includes a two-story house that resembles a duplex. Each side has its own entrance, including two bedrooms upstairs and an open kitchen with a living room downstairs. There is also a guesthouse with two additional bedrooms and it's own kitchen. There is a ping pong table, several beach chairs and even some beach pails, toy shovels, etc. for the kids. It's a quiet, private beach with amazing views and we were even lucky enough to see dolphins on a couple occasions. From the time I reserved the property, communication with Frank (the home owner) was excellent. Any calls or emails were answered quickly and the deposit with refunded within a week. We were a group of eleven adults and were very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property to large groups. However, if you're looking to be close to bars and restaurants, this property is a bit far from all of that.
Everyone had a great time together in the spacious porch facing the beach. The sunsets were magical. People stopped by selling the most delicious mangos and coconuts. There's a lady that even braided the girls hair. The banana boat was definitely something we will never forget- non stop laughter. Sleeping arrangements were also spacious with a full bathroom in each room. The home had everything we needed and more. The downtown area was only about 15-20 mins away and had all the touristy things like souvenirs and t shirts. Also very tasty "Micheladas" (beer with tomato juice and chilipepper). Overall incredible experience. Will definitely comeback next year!!! Thank you Frank.
The beach had the most beautiful shells around: Sand Dollars, Starfish, Conch shells, and even the occasional Seahorse!, Puerto Pinasco (15-20 mins away) has restaurants, shopping, nightclubs, tons of Aquatic activities, Charter boats, Day/Night Cruises, Aquarium, Fresh Seafood (Oysters, Shell fish etc),
