Description from owner

The heavy wooden entry gates swing open to a tropical garden, offering fresh papaya and coconuts seasonally. A fountain splashes softly. The stone pathway leads to a castle rotunda, an open foyer breezeway with inlay marble wall-art gracing the entry to your private paradise. All four levels of this stunning property command breathtaking sea views. It is fewer than a dozen steps to the pristine beach embraced by the warmth of the Sea of Cortez. Gentle ocean breezes, breaching whales and surfing dolphins are your constant companions. You can swim in the sea if you like, or take a dip in the jacuzzi that pours into the infinity pool. Watch the sunset from the spacious gazebo overlooking the beach and when at last darkness descends, the cozy fire-pit beckons with its luxurious built-in seating, as the sky turns to a blanket of stars.

NOTE: We have added a new media room! It has 80" HDTV with 7.2 stereo surround sound, DISH TV and BlueRay. For your lounging comfort we also have 3 leather electric reclining rockers with USB ports and a large 123" couch which has a sofa bed (which could be used as a bedroom #5 for overflow.) The media room also has an ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet and shower. It also includes A/C and two ceiling fans.

Upstairs from the new media room is a new gym. We currently have an elliptical machine, treadmill, rowing machine, recumbent bike, TRX and free weights. The gym also has a TV with DVD player, A/C, ceiling fans and mini fridge.

Beds: 4 King Beds, 1 Queen and 2 Sofa Beds

The easiest way to get here from SJD airport is via a transportation service then having a rental car delivered to you. The managers can help you put this all together so things flow smoothly after a hectic travel day.

“Incredible Vacation”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2010

El Encanto de La Laguna is a truly fantastic property. My recent stay was incredible. Each of the 4 Master Suites has a different theme and is beautifully appointed with a patio or balcony that overlooks the ocean. We watched whales migrate past the property. The beds were truly 'heavenly' and the showers and closets amazing. The kitchen/great room offers any and everything you could possibly want or need. Having a housekeeper daily to help was above and beyond our expectations. The outdoor living space with the infinity pool, the very large palapa with comfortable furniture, the fantastic fire pit, the stairs to the gates that open to an incredible beach and the wonderful ocean views from all the outdoor areas make this a 6 star property. I plan to come back often. It is perfect for couples, families or a getaway with friends. There are terrific restaurants and great shopping nearby.
