Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our vacation staying in Brenda's condo! It took a day for us to slow down from our busy lives and relax. We quickly discovered the condo had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was very well equipped with many comforts and decorated nicely. We did need to buy a couple lightbulbs but that's it. Our dogs were very comfortable because the air conditioner worked great -- thank you for letting us bring them. We really enjoyed the pool, especially at night looking up at the stars -- even seeing a few shooting stars. The time we were there was very quiet and very few people.

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in Brenda's condo a number of times and will be going back again. I took my girls and grandchildren for 10 days and we all had a wonderful time. We were there over 4th of July, which was crowded, but to be expected. It was quiet and peaceful the rest of the time. My husband and I came back for the end of the month and just relaxed, ate delicious food, and took in some local bars. Wrecked at the Reef is fun for a beach day. Capones has delicious crab cakes and fresh pizza. I will be in touch with you soon, Brenda! Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Memorial Day 2014

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful Condo on the ground floor as it states. That's very important to my husband and I. We felt very lucky to find this available and at such a reasonable rent. It is a rocky shoreline and the Hot Tub wasn't working. Didn't bother us too much. We enjoyed the pool and did get down into the Sea one day. We enjoyed our time there and the leisurely pace. You have to remember this is Mexico and things happen slowly. Just be prepared to lay back, relax and enjoy. We bought some beautiful large shrimp, the size of lobster tails and great fresh fish to bring home. Since it's only a 4 hour drive for us, this was a no brainer and one of the items on our agenda. I would recommend Rocky Point for a nice vacation and this condo to give you the feeling of being home. That's how we felt.

Perfect Place for Peaceful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Having never traveled to Mexico, our family of five did not know quite what to expect. However, from the moment we booked this condo with Brenda, we were extremely pleased from start to finish. From the pictures, we knew that the condo would be very nice and that our views of the Sea of Cortez would be good. We didn't realize just how nice the condo is and how spectacular the views are until we stepped into the condo and out onto the patio. If you want to be near the water -- both the pool and the sea -- then this is the place.

We practically had the pool/hot tub to ourselves for about 90% of the time. Although there were a few other families staying there during our week, we rarely ran into them. The lack of people might be a negative for some, but for us, it was very peaceful and serene. We never had any issues with noisy neighbors or with loud partiers. We may have stayed during a quiet week, but quiet was just what we needed. At no time during our stay in the condo or in Puerto Penasco did we feel unsafe. The guards and condo managers were nice and very helpful and tried to answer any questions that we had.

Although the beach is rocky and not sandy, our three boys (especially our 8 year-old) loved exploring the tide pools and trying some metal detecting. We were even able to do some snorkeling in front of the condo and see some very colorful fish. One of the great things about this condo is its location. Only minutes from the Malecon and the main part of Puerto Penasco, we were able to get around very easily. This contributed to a much more culturally diverse experience as opposed to what you might get at Sandy Beach.

All in all, my family had one of the best vacations that we have ever had! We hated to leave after just seven days. We will definitely return to Puerto Penasco and will definitely stay at Brenda's condo again. I would highly recommend this condo and this location. Brenda was a delight to work with and we look forward to our next family vacation to Rocky Point and Palacio del Mar!

I really wanted my experience to be better

  • 3 of 5
THE GOOD: Awesome views. Reasonably well appointed, safe property. Appliances worked. Owner responsive. Property was clean by RP standards. Ample parking.

THE BAD: Weak Wi-Fi coverage; not to be confused with slow speeds. iPhones & iPads croaked, but computers did better.

Brenda had set my expectations that the area right in front of the condo was quite rocky, but the “miles of usable beach just east of the condo” is a stretch. Yes, it’ less rocky 150 yards to the left, but “usable” is a matter of opinion. The further east you go, the better it gets. Suggestion: Owner should post photos that clearly show the “usable beach” and the condo in the same frame vs. the ones taken at a low angle of the water alone that are currently posted.

In the instruction sheet I received 5 days prior to departure Brenda says that “I do not list a hot tub or heated pool” as properties are reducing heating expenses. However, at the time of my booking “Shared Hot Tub” was mentioned in the listing; by the time you read this review, Brenda will have removed this mention. The hot tub was a deciding factor for us in choosing this property. I could have asked for a refund upon seeing this 5 days prior to leaving, but didn’t, because there was very little inventory left to choose from.

I was prepared that the bar across the street would be loud. But I didn’t expect that for 3 out 4 nights, a bunch of drunk people would party just 40 yards from my patio, blast their stereo at full volume, break bottles and laugh like hyenas from 2:30 am to 5:30 am. What about the guards on the property? Well, the property border ends right where the crowd starts partying – yep, you guessed it, 40 yards! This factor, although not in the owner’s control, had a major impact on my rating.

THE UGLY: Spare bed sheets and all pillow covers kept for the sofa bed had hair all over them. They weren’t washed. Saw brownish-red stains on sleep sofa mattress cover. Removed the cover to flip it inside out and saw similar stains on mattress. That did it for my wife. We had one of the kids sleep in our bed for 4 nights. Housekeeper needs to do a better job keeping owner informed.

Brenda, I have revised this review based on the objections you raised in email, and this is the best I can do to objectively assess my experience. I’m aware that most reviewers love your property, but I just didn’t have the same experience they did. I trust you will be open to my feedback and take it constructively.

Owner's Response: First of all, I want to say that I have many return renters who come back time and time again. This was a family of 5 and most families and everyone else loves my property. I have no control over other renters or the locals being noisy, although I haven't experienced this myself. The times I've stayed at other properties in Rocky Point, there was no WiFi coverage at all. The WiFi at my condo works better than most properties in RP. The first I knew of any of their other concerns was when I saw the review. I have a very nice and professional cleaning lady who does an awesome job. If there were sheets or mattress covers that were not washed and we were aware of it, she would have immediately taken care of it. She rarely misses anything and does her best to keep my condo in pristine condition. I checked in with these folks a couple of days into their trip and they said that everything was fine. I hope that future renters will not take this information to heart, and I truly believe that most of what this renter said is inaccurate. The tide pools along the beach that he mentions as "not usable" are among the best in RP and you see people in the water and on the beach all of the time, so this is definitely not true that this beach cannot be used. I clearly state in my contract and in my letter that I send to each renter that the hot tub and pool may not be heated. Most people don't mind this as it is 105 degrees right now. To say that he didn't know this until 5 days prior to his trip is not true as it was stated in the contract he signed 5 weeks prior to their trip. I guess this goes to show that not everyone can be pleased, but I do try my best.
