Sonora House Rental Photos and Description

This amazing beachfront home on Playa Hermosa has all the joys of a resort vacation in the privacy of a furnished home. The 3,000 square foot decorated home has 5 large bedrooms, each coupled with their own bathroom. Two oceanfront rooms each have a queen bed and built-in twin, and two bedrooms with courtyard views each have a queen bed. A fifth bedroom is a large bunk room with a futon couch/bed and 2 bunk beds - both have a futon twin on top and full on the bottom - makes a great room for the kids!

Amazing views of the ocean fill the spacious great room and a brick boveda ceiling and large cupola add to the extraordinary details of this home. A well equipped kitchen and beehive fireplace in the living room provide all you need to enjoy a resort style vacation in the comforts of a private home.

Breathe in the refreshing ocean air from a large covered patio or an upper sun deck, or relax with the sunset next to a built in fire pit.

This home also has a ping-pong table for hours of fun and a wood burning fire pit right on the beach for roasting marshmallows or making s'mores or just relaxing to the sound of a crackling fire and mesmerizing ocean waves.

We are Pet Friendly - bring up to 2 dogs for just $75 per visit. They will love the freedom of the secluded beach!

*Must contact owner directly for inquiries and reservations. No Brokers.*

My family and I had the best time. The home and the beach were great. When there was a question about something at the home the customer service was very responsive. We would definitely stay here again!!

Amazing Beach!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stay a couple of times a year in Rocky Pointe. We usually need a large home. This house fit our size of 4 families. We had a comical situation right off the get go looking for the key. We walked into the home and I kid you not dolphins were out in the water swimming by. What a thrill. We actually had dolphins swim within 10 feet of us while in the water. And that wasn't the last time we saw dolphins. This home was comfortable with everything we needed, including coozies, games, kayaks, kick boards/skim boards, ping pong (all accessories are provided), batteries, etc. Kayak takes on water fyi. But it held up for a bit. I've never stayed on this beach before, it's out further than Playa Encanto Beach BUT if you want the most beautiful beach, and seclusion this is it. We found the largest shells I've seen in years. And a variety. Its very close to the oyster farm also. For us that was a big bonus. The oysters are really great. And cheap. The solar is no bueno. A lot of trouble for paying customers. But the generator worked fine. The use of the garage was very nice, as was the washer/dryer. We'd return again for sure. Be aware the 5th bedroom is a really nice big room, lots of beds and tv and table. Great for the kids, but the mattresses for the most part are futons. Not ideal for adult backs. But an awesome kids retreat.

Great House, Great Location, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

There were minor items of which the owner was readily available and helped correct. He was great. Awesome house and the location is amazing especially if you are looking for your own private beach. The kids has a blast especially during the low tide part of the day when you can walk well into the ocean and it's very shallow and kid friendly.

Casa Hermosa is a beautiful home. We had a party of twelve and had plenty of room. Some of the beds are a little hard but we loved having private bathrooms with each bedroom. The bunk room was very roomy but the bottom beds are futons and not very comfortable (teenagers complained but the small kids didn't). We were surprises that there weren't any hangers or dressers in any of the bedrooms. We loved the excluded feeling and having the beach to ourselves for most of the stay. The patio is spacious and having the beach so close was great for the little ones. The ping pong table was a success, just bring your own ping pong balls. The kayaks were in rough shape and we couldn't go out long without taking on water, which was a disappointment to many. Power is an issue with the solar power. It was a minor inconvenience but we couldn't all have a warm shower daily. Often the water would change drastically from cold to hot. (Its a good way to get your teenagers to take a quick shower)

As I stated, the home is beautiful and the beach had so many beautiful shells,and sand dollars. The weather was beautiful (just had two windy days but went into town, which was about a 15 minute drive). We had a wonderful trip and the owner came over as soon as we called and went over the solar power and generator.

Casa Hermosa review

  • 4 of 5

We rented this beautiful home on May 30th, and had a great time. The house is big, clean, and our group of 5 families with kids fitted very well.The house location is a bit isolated, I expected a whole beach full with vacation homes such as Playa Encanto, but there were only a few vacation homes. Also, the house is running on solar and we had issues with the power during the night. Other then those issues, we had all the comfort we needed!

Amazing Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great find in Casa Hermosa, especially for a holiday weekend! While the resort side of Rocky Point was packed with beach goers, we had our beach basically to ourselves. One large group was in the home next door but homes are few and far between with plenty of beach to share. Look east past your one neighbor and you will see a mile of open beach with no homes or hotels. It was so nice waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean waves just outside your window and to know the beach is literally steps away from the back door.

This is an ideal location for groups or families. If you’re looking for a more private property that is still very accessible to town, then consider Casa Hermosa.

Pros: All the bedrooms have separate bathrooms - a plus for added comfort and privacy. The patio was very large and accommodating for guests to relax. The fire pit was nice and a great complement to the amazing views of the stars at night. The kayaks made for great entertainment and exercise and I had many good laughs watching friends get flipped as they tried it for the first time! Having free wifi and satellite tv when we needed to catch up with the rest of the world was clutch. The location is also great because some members in our house wanted to enjoy some good quiet time, while others grouped together and had fun. The open beach allows for one to enjoy all the personal time they could desire.

Cons (really they’re minor and suggestions for improvements as this did not detract from our wonderful stay): water pressure a bit low in the kitchen - difficult to wash dishes, pots, and pans quickly, and the beds were not resort quality soft, but we still slept like logs! Phil, the owner, was very helpful with our one problem. The A/C unit tripped the power when we tried to turn it on. He recently had work done to the unit and believes there was an electrical short. This was easily mitigated as every bedroom has its own A/C unit and we were all quite comfortable without the main house unit. I imagine this would be fixed by the next time we visit. Extra pillows from home is a recommendation.

Overall, Casa Hermosa is a gorgeous property and staying here made for a very impressionable and memorable vacation. We would recommend this place and may soon plan our next trip to Casa Hermosa.
