About Chuck Eberhardt

Chuck and Dave (Stringray Brothers) along with their wives (Chris and Carol) have been friends for over 40 years. Both couples relocated from California to Arizona in Scottsdale and Tucson. Dave and Carol have been living part-time in Rocky Point for the last 14 years. You can see their high rise beach condo, “Luna Blanca” (White Moon) from our “Luna Sombra” (Moon Shadow) villa. They fell in love with the clean air, year-round sunshine, friendly (laid back) Mexican lifestyle along with the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and can provide much tourist information that you may want. We also have an onsite property manager, Daniel, who will help you get set up at the Villa and can assist you should you have any problems while staying at the Villa.

Chuck Eberhardt purchased this villa in 2010

Why Chuck Eberhardt chose Rocky Point

Luna Sombra Villa is an economical way to have your whole family and friends enjoy the safe and relaxing atmosphere of the Mayan Palace Resort amenities while still having your own private Villa for your group.

What makes this villa unique

Golf & Resort Package: We have also made arrangements for our guests to have full use of the Jack Nicklaus designed Peninsula de Cortes Golf course and the Mayan Palace Resort which is located on the same property as our Villa. And after a day of golf and resort activities you can relax at your own private pool and patio or watch the sunsets from the Sky Terrace patio overlooking the Sea of Cortes Estuary and Mountains.

Villa was beautiful, surrounding area interesting

  • 3 of 5

An interesting adventure to say the least since we have never been to Rocky Point – we likely won’t go back to this part of Mexico. The villa is beautiful, well laid out floorplan and very nice features. However, the property is located in an unfinished resort which almost seems abandoned. It was fun to explore, but a bit of a weird vibe. Chuck was fantastic and very responsive. We had no major issues and you have to remember you are in Mexico! Do go downtown and buy fresh fish to cook; you won’t find many tempting meat options at the stores. Bring your own seasonings, not many available at the grocery store. Sam’s club membership was worth it. Restaurants downtown didn’t amaze us so we only went downtown once. We ended up spending lots of down time at the villa just enjoying our own company, reading, generally relaxing.


Not many other residents, so noise was not an issue (we could play our dice game without feeling like we would bother others)

Roof top deck is cool, there is power for music, and the view is beautiful

Access to the other resort was great, but we only went once

Kitchen is gorgeous and functional

Plenty of comfortable seating in all common rooms inside/outside


Not well stocked as other VRBO experiences, so we made many trips to the store – 20+ mins away

The pool is not heated/the hot tub is not operational – both things we missed in the description, so our fault

Wifi is absolutely terrible! Don’t plan on streaming movies or family games. Bring DVDs!

The grill was rustic – we purchased briquettes and a grill pan to use it one night.

Great for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was great for our family vacation. We really enjoyed the pool at the house and at the Mayan Palace we were able to use the beach and pools as well. The weather was great! The house has an awesome terrace perfect for a night cap and star gazing. Overall a wonderful experience will definitely be coming back!

Clean property, with Mayan Palace drive 10 min away

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property itself is very nice. The property was clean, has comfortable beds, and a nice kitchen. You have access to the Mayan Palace pools (including an indoor pool), beach, and restaurants which are all about a 10 minute drive. You do not have access to the Grand Mayan, which is where the lazy river is, and you have to pay $10/day to access the fitness center. The pool at the Villa is great, except the hot tub does not function. The Villa itself is nowhere near the beach, and the water you see in the pictures comes in and out with the tides.

Unfortunately the Mayan Lakes, where the Villa is located, is not being kept up and is basically an unfinished condo property/project that is in dis-repair. It feels somewhat like a ghost town, as most of the condos have never been sold.

Puerto Penasco restaurants, shopping, etc are all about 30-40 minutes away. Basically you get a great Villa to stay in, but you have to drive quite a bit to enjoy the beach, any restaurants, excursions, shopping etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Luna Sombra Villa. We pride ourselves on providing a wonderful experience to our guests with the Villa facilities, Mayan Palace Resort facilities and Golf Course all at a very affordable price. We do advertise that the Mayan Palace Resort is 2 miles away, the Villa is located on the estuary and that the downtown area of Rocky Pt. is 20 miles away. We don't advertise that we are on the beach or that we have a hot tub or that our guests will have access to the Grand Mayan facilities. I'm sorry that you may have been disappointed, but I sincerely hope that you and your guests had an enjoyable time at the Villa.

Quiet stay out of town.

  • 5 of 5

House is a great get away. Near the Mayan Resort so you have plenty of activities to choose from. Nice distance from Rocky Point, so that if you want to go into town for dinner or to have some fun it is a short drive. Definitely beats the condo scene in town.
