Description: Rocky Point is what Americans call Puerto Peñasco, which is in Sonora State at the top of the Sea of Cortez.

Its proximity to the Arizona border, less than 60 miles away, help make it a destination for many second-home owners from Phoenix, Tucson and other Arizona towns.

One of the special things about Mexican homes is that they tend to have more detail than the cookie-cutter houses often found in U.S. developments. This house, which is located close to the beach, is no exception. It has such features as a boveda ceiling with cupola, which lets the daylight stream in to the living room. It also boasts a beehive fireplace, Mexican tile kitchen, a deep porch with balustrade and a great yard.

The shore is nearby and the beach, made up of soft sand, is very quiet and serene. Besides sailing and swimming, recreation facilities include access to the community tennis courts, clubhouse and swimming pool.
