seaside: Beach home rentals rockypoint

My family has had a beach house in Mexico for over 13 years, & we have been going down there for over 20. I never get bored of it & it’s a great place to go! There's all kinds of places to stay in town, there are a lot of inexpensive places that are still really nice. The fish market is a really neat place to go to if you don't mind the smell of fish - there is a long row of buildings facing the ocean with the road side completely open, each shop will try to get u to buy there fish for cheaper then next door- getting u good prices on all kinds of fish ,clams and shrimp. & The restaurants around the fish market have waiters out front offering u free drinks and appetizers to eat at “their” restaurant, all of them trying to offer u a better deal then the next. The shops around the fish market have gotten pricier in the last couple of years, but u can still bargain & find some really good deals. Another great shopping area is Rodeo Drive - it’s cheaper & has a different variety of things. just ask someone for directions. There are places in town where u can rent quads to get around easier. Balboas is a great place to eat, it over looks a shipping dock Good food, good view, & right next to lobo del mar headquarters. http://www.lobodelmar.com has good prices on scubadiving, parasailing, sailboating & one night sunset cruises. If u like a bit of adventure I would suggest going out to seal Island with them. U can snorkel or scuba with the seals that are all over the little Islands. If you go during pup season you have a chance in seeing some sharks as well.

If u like your privacy I would suggest renting beach homes, its best to go threw a company such as http://www.seasidebeachhomerentals.com * They rent private homes in all different areas and beaches, each home is completely different & has its own style - u choose. Our home is in Playa Mira Mar, which is a wonderful beach that has a few rentals to choose from as well. It’s about 35 min. outside of rocky point. Its more secluded & quite. For the most part u can expect to see very few if any other people on this beach—it doesn't get to bad during holidays either. Unfortunately they put in a Mayan palace less then mile from the end of the houses but the people don't come down by the houses. The tides are amazing, the water comes up close to the houses and goes really far out exposing coral and leaving puddles-where u can find trapped fish, crabs, octopus, big sea snails, sting rays. I Suggest bringing hard bottomed water shoes. If u are up for a walk or have four-wheel drive head down to the estuary GREAT fishing, claming and crabbing. Just be careful lots of sting rays, crabs, a nasty current, and once in a while sharks. When the tides out u can walk across the entire estuary and find all kinds of treasures and life in the puddles, rocks and buried in the sand. OVERALL Try to avoid drinking the water, Specially in the home rentals because their water comes from tanks and it will get u sick, No worries Showering and doing dishes with the water wont hurt! The locals r really friendly & accommodating most of them can speak really good English so no language barriers! Remember RESPECT, it may be Mexico but that doesn't mean u can go everywhere in your swimsuit, use your best judgment in that area.

Hombre del Desierto (Man of the Desert): A fun place downtown.

Cute, interesting place. Most rooms have 2 bedrooms with queen beds. A TV, fridge, and 3/4 bath. NO Elevator!! but we just take our time.

Great views. Quiet. Fun, friendly bars with pool tables. Central location. Rates increased, but still good value. (I think it was $65/night a few months ago.) We've stayed here several times.

Sea Side Beach Home Rentals: Beach Home Rentals

We always rent out the 'Casa Q Queen House', and make it a good time. It's always good to go with a group of friends. We used to make it out for spring break. It's a two story, two bath house, with a massive living area, which can sleep many. There's a bar in the living area, and that's where all the action took place. Don't worry about bringing your car because the house is surrounded by a 10 foot wall, topped with glass shards and sharp nails, so you won't have to worry about anyone jumping the fence.

Nothing too fancy, but it's in the perfect location, right by all the bars.

Hotel Granada del Mar: Great seaside stay.

Great location. Funky ambiance. Friendly staff.

Right on the beach, fairly secluded, fun atmosphere. Nice rooms, very economical rates. We could take two leaps and be in the surf.

Princess: By the Sea....past the dunes....

We had a pleasant stay at the Princess. It is condominium rentals and is located west of town towards the Point. There are other large condo projects being built in the same area. The unit we stayed in was clean, roomy, and well-maintained. The amenities (pool, service) was adequate, and about the only drawback was it was a bit of a drive into town for food. Our directions the first time out were a little sketchy, so we had a hard time finding it initially.

Hotel Grenada del Mar: More images from Hotel Grenada del Mar

It was in February 2009, so not exactly sun and surf, but we had a great time and loved our stay. Check out these other pictures not yet published.

Cheap, fun, secluded, but close to all venues.
