The design and decor of this beachfront villa is a stunning combination of Spanish Hacienda, Moorish Castle and Mediterranean style home. It is tasteful elegance throughout - creamy travertine floors, hand crafted wood furniture and four master suites each stunningly decorated in tile and stone, all with posh bathrooms, fine linens and private ocean-view balconies, three with walk-in closets and mini-refrigerators. The crowning royal suite has its own fireplace for that romantic glow. The great room features a natural gathering place for good friends and family, complete with gourmet kitchen, big screen TV, Bose surround sound (indoors and out), computer system with Wi-Fi Internet and an abundance of comfortable built-in seating.
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. You can watch the sunset together from the spacious palapa 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.
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.
We had a great time from the moment we arrived until the moment we had to leave. The house, the beach and the area was just what we were looking for and more; beauty, nature and luxurious surroundings. Judy and Mike were great hosts making sure we had all we needed from getting there to helping us around the area and being a great resources in general. The house is fantastic - luxurious but very eco-conscious. The bedrooms are FULL suites each with a patio view, cal-king bed and bath. And what special baths, you have to see them to appreciate the detail work. With wi-fi, satellite TV, flat screen TV, surround sound etc. we had the best of all worlds - nature, beauty, luxury, eco-friendly and hi-tech. We had 4 couples there and we all highly recommend this rental.
We were absolutely thrilled with our stay and experience at El Encanto de La Laguna! We felt like we were staying at a 5 star resort. The amenities were impeccable and the property is truly beautiful. This multi-level tropical paradise exceeded all of our expectations. The 180 degree sea views from sunrise to sunset and whale watching from the private balcony off our master bedroom suite were beautiful. Our master bedroom suite was one of four in the unique property layout. Relaxing by the infinity pool, spa and firepit was a favorite. Cocktails and sunsets at the palapa were a nightly event. We enjoyed being able to step right onto the beach from the property. We will definitely plan a return visit to El Encanto.
