If you want to be right on the beach, yet very close to the port and town, and still away from the huge condos' activity that have unfortunately spoiled the authenticity of Puerto Penasco, this is the place!
Joyce has put much attention to make her place welcoming and comfortable, and her artwork in the condo (she's a painter) is lovely.
We had a little trouble with the water pump upon arrival, and Joyce responded immediately, sending her maintenance team right away.
Definitely a nice place to stay.
Tried to book for dates in August. Description does say 6 people, but I asked if 7 would be ok. A special family trip before my son left to the military. We consisted of 3 adults 1 adult just turned 18 (my son) and a 10,4, and 1 year old. I asked if 7 would be ok due to us taking a pop up crib or the baby sleeping with us. After several emails basically saying (begging) this would be perfect for the trip my son wants before he leaves. It was a NO. Pretty sad after all the great reviews I read and for being honest that the 7th was a 1 year old.
I was delighted to find Joyce's condo very clean and well appointed. This condo had everything I needed to have a great time. In fact, I brought too many things that were already stocked in the condo. The location could not be better.....right on the beach. I enjoy a peaceful place to stay with all the amenities like a fireplace, internet, garage and a kitchen full of everything I need to cook up some great dishes. It's a place I would happily spend the rest of my life looking out over the Sea of Cortez, watching dolphin pods cruise by. Traveling alone, safety is always a concern to me and I have never felt safer.
Thank you, Joyce for allowing me to stay at your great place and thank you so very much for taking the time and trouble to send my cd player and cds back to me that I left behind.
I am already planning my next trip to Puerto Penasco and I really don't want to consider staying at any other condo than Joyce's.
When we made our reservations for Joyce's condo we were nervous. This was our first trip to Rocky Point and we had no idea what to expect. Traveling with two teenaged sons, we wanted to be outside of the debauchery of spring breakers, but still on the beach. Going on previous reviews alone, we booked and hoped for the best. Let me tell you, we were more than satisfied! Joyce's condo was clean, adorable, and well appointed. She provided kitchen supplies, towels, and outdoor furniture. The weber grill and umbrella made our trip perfect! The beach is clean and quiet, only a few people here and there, so my kids had loads of room to play and fly kites. The vendors were few, and not pushy. We even got amazing massages right on our patio. The garage was fantastic, knowing we were safely locked at night took all the pressure off. Every detail was awesome, and we are grateful to Joyce for creating this cozy environment to make our vacation relaxing and memorable.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Joyce's home! The condo is clean, comfortable and has original art work by the owner. The patio out to the beach is amazing and great for viewing dolphins and whales throughout the day. The location is great and there are many options for food and entertainment only a short distance away! We will be back!
