Message from Casa Playa owner: As the owners of Casa Playa, we welcome you and hope that you have a wonderful holiday on the beautiful Sea of Cortez. For over 20 years we have enjoyed the peace and beauty of this place, the spellbinding sunsets and the charmof the city. As frequent visitors to Puerto Penasco, it became impossible for us to ignore the plight of many of the street dogs suffering from illness, starvation and sometimes outright cruelty. On several occasions we took abandoned, sick and starving dogs back to the United States to be rehabilitated and to find loving "forever" homes.

A few years ago we encountered Barb Mumbach, who operates Barb's Dog Rescue about five miles north of town. She is an incredible woman who has struggled to help these poor dogs in any way that she can . She cares for them at her rescue providing food, medicine, and lots of love. She has also arranged for spaying and neutering, as well as many successful adoptions to the United States.

Your choice to stay at Casa Playa is a significant benefit to these dogs because we have pledge 100% of all rental revenues from Casa Playa to Barb's Dog Rescue.

I hope you have a chance to stop by and visit Barb, and even consider a contribution toward her wonderful efforts.

To the world, Barb is a dog rescuer. To each of these needy dogs, she is their world.

Reviewer Comments:

This property if gorgeous and the location is pretty good. There were issues as soon as we got there. There are water rationings throughout the city. Las Conchas community has no contract with the city authorities for water. The city send water in the late evening for about 3 hours, the homes in the area have a water reservoir container that it suppose to collect water for daily use. When we got there we were told they had just filled the reserve and not to worry. Within hours of getting the keys there was no water for showers, washing hands, etc. We had no water for almost a whole day. The management company came out and checked the pump and found an empty container. Apparently the city had not pumped any water for at least 3 days. The purchased a pipe of water and got us going again. We choose to use the bottled water jugs for all our cooking needs, we cooked all 3 meals there at the property. When we contacted management for extra bottles of water they were very rude at first questioning how we could go thru 3 jugs so quickly. Hello!! we had no water for an entire day, they seem to have forgotten that part. Eventually we got what we needs taken care but they management company was a bit abrupt. We also had a small rodent problem in the first floor laundry room and an ant problem in the main house kitchen. But they were dealt with. The bedroom with the queen size bed has a very bad shower tub combination in the bathroom. I fell on the first night we got there and threw my back out. I would recommend they upgrade that bathroom to make it a walk in shower instead very dangerous and slippery. I chose to not use that restroom for the remainder of our stay. The sleeping arrangement are as you see them on line,no extra pull outs or beds,only 1 bed per room. Kitchen cookware needs some upgrades and no large pots or cookware. Management checked on us daily after water incident and they came around wh

Reviewer Comments:

This house was perfect for our family vacation. Each bedroom having their own bathroom was a plus!! House was spacious and clean and kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The living room furniture was very comfortable. The views were awesome! We wish we could have stayed longer and plan on doing so next family vacation. A few cons: Some of the mattresses could use some upgrading as some were a little hard. The outside shower was not working so we had to use the waterhose in courtyard. We called office due to ants in the downstairs room and they sent someone right over to spray. We would suggest owners putting some kind of stripping to prevent ants/bugs from going in the downstairs room. Over all we had a great time and would stay again!

Our family stay at Casa Playa was the best experience we have ever had in Rocky Point. Very clean, spacious, beautifully furnished, large fully equipped kitchen, multiple decks and roof deck with fire pit and only steps away from a spectacular sandy beach. Every bedroom was its own private suite. We highly recommend!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we enjoyed our stay in this house. We had a group of 10 which the house was set up perfectly for - seating for 10 at the dining room table and also in the living room. The deck had ample chairs and we thoroughly loved sitting out there looking at the beach and ocean. One big disappointment was the 5th bedroom was very small with just a double bed. The mattresses in some of the bedrooms were very uncomfortable. I think the unit could use a little maintenance. The grill was in poor shape so that we wouldn't use it - really missed having a grill. Office staff and maintenance were pleasant.
