Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 10

Spectacular is the only way to describe this 4000 square foot, two story beach front home in the gated community of Las Conchas. Sleeping quarters consist of four large bedrooms and four bathrooms. Artistic touches and walls of tinted glass mysteriously bring the Sea of Cortez into this home. A 22 foot high Cathedral brick dome ceiling with gold cupola reflects the sun’s rays throughout this 30 foot circular Great Room with floor to ceiling ocean view glass. Imported furniture from the Philippines, a whale’s tail coffee table, and huge white pillars, automatic gas fireplace, and Bose stereo system with CD player all add to the ambiance. The large kitchen features a side-by-side refrigerator, halogen high speed cooking center, dishwasher, microwave and drinking water system and Satellite High Definition TV. Walls of glass surround the large dining area which overlooks the beach and the sea. The large private upstairs veranda is equipped with a gas barbecue and is perfect for sunning or stargazing. The master bedroom, with wall to wall glass ocean views and king-size bed, features another cathedral brick domed ceiling. The master bath integrates glass block walls with custom cabinetry and granite counter tops. The second main floor bedroom has two queen beds with hand carved headboards and its own custom large bathroom. The Whale bedroom downstairs has a hand carved king-size bed and custom large bathroom. The fourth bedroom has its own bathroom, walls of glass ocean views and a memory foam queen-size sofa bed. During the day this bedroom converts into a TV center with High Definition large screen satellite TV and VCR. Outside of this bedroom is a large covered porch, whale mosaic and a hot and cold water beach shower. Central air/heat, and fans in every room and Wifi complete this home. Owner requests No Smoking Inside and No Pets. Sheets and towels are provided

2-night Minimum; 3-night minimum during all Holidays. Occupancy eight adults and two children, maximum 10 people***.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay was great. The house is nice and spacious. The kitchen is big and the dinning room table has great views of the ocean. The top patio is great as well and you can see the dolphins in the morning. With no wifi I wouldn't stay longer than a long weekend since I would not be able to stay connected to work. Overall fun stay at a place that is right on the beach, easy to get to and close to town.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a great vacation. The Good: 3 bedrooms with own bathroom; fourth "bedroom" had fold-out couch (not so good) but also had its own bathroom; great views, huge entry and living room area, mostly well-equipped kitchen, nice dining area with beautiful views, clean, beach front, heating worked great (on cold nights)- Not so good: overall "dated" furnishings; living room huge but not very user friendly (had a tile "coffee table" in shape of tale of whale; very nice but not very practical); not sufficient kitchen counter space; only one large TV in the 4th bedroom with not sufficient seating; most linens (sheets, pillows, etc) need replacements; no mop! One night it rained pretty hard and water seeped in various areas and had nothing to mop with-contacted Oceano via phone call and email (no answer on either one), had to use bath towels. Wi-fi available but weak; had to call Oceano to get password info (should be available upon arrival). Overall, I would recommend to a friend, but with reservations. I believe that there are probably better properties for the price in Las Conchas.
