Do you enjoy sitting on a balcony sipping morning coffee while watching the sun slowly rise or sipping a leisurely glass of wine while watching a glorious sunset over the Sea of Cortez? If so, a relaxing vacation at Encanto Living (Enchanted) is the place for you. Just a few miles down the beach from the quaint Mexican fishing village of Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco), this stunning, private, gated community is located on Playa Miramar (Miramar Beach), a quiet secluded beach away from all traffic and noise. Playa Miramar is absolutely pristine with unbelievable shell collecting. You can stroll for miles and encounter tide pools and an occasional great heron. Dolphin sightings are common and the pelican patrols are delightful.
From this lavish yet affordable oceanfront resort you can hear the waves lapping at the shore and savor gentle Sea of Cortez ocean breezes while staying connected with all the courtyard activities. Encanto Living was developed by the same family that developed all of the Mayan resorts throughout Mexico, so quality, perfection and amenities abound. The Grand Lobby has soaring 15-foot ceilings and indoor fireplaces. The pool area is lushly landscaped with a heated infinity pool, sun loungers, oceanfront whirlpool spas, private cabanas, outdoor fireplaces, assigned shaded parking, fitness center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and free weights, steam room with his and her facilities, multi-function community room, tennis and basketball courts and a self-serve pool bar & grill. The resort has 24 hour security and on-site English and Mexican property management.
This is a 2 bdrm/2.5 bath unit, but I also have a 1B/1B in this complex. Rent both for larger families, or if you need a smaller unit. The VRBO number is 761969.
From its enormous terrace, your majestic condo has 180 degree views of the Sea of Cortez and Miramar Beach. With over 2000 square feet of living area, this condo, which can accommodate up to 6 people, has 2 master bedrooms and 2.5 baths. A soothing Jacuzzi tub is located in the Grand Master suite. The fully stocked modern kitchen is complete with granite counter tops and GE stainless steel appliances. The condo has a full size washer and dryer. Internet Wi-Fi, premium Direct TV and free phone to the US are added features. No water issues here. Encanto has its own water purification system with water coming from deep mountain wells.
Encanto Living is near the Mayan Palace, which is an easy walk along the beach or a 5 minute drive away. There you can enjoy pool side margaritas, casual and fine dining. Their fabulous restaurant offers a fantastic Sunday brunch as well as excellent lunch and dinner menus. A Jack Nicholas premier Golf Course is there as well. Many water tour activities can be secured at the Mayan such as fishing, whale watching and trips to Bird Island for snorkeling.
A 20 minute drive takes you to Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco) where you can explore the fish market and shops in Old Port, or enjoy the conveniences of a Sam's Club and Rocky Point’s version of Wal-Mart (Bodega Aurelia). If you fancy the work of Mexican artisans, a visit to Cholla Mall is a must.
