New luxury hacienda style home and apartment on Playa Troncones
Welcome to Casa Chulada, a luxury home recently completed in the quiet village of Troncones, Mexico. As some of you know, chulada is a word sometimes used to describe people, places and things which means “exceptionally or exceeding beautiful” -- often luxuriously and deliciously so. We chose the name as it describes the feeling we have when we are here – in the house, the gardens, the pool, on the beach and in the surrounding communities – and the feeling that we hope you will experience.
Chulada offers beachfront living with the ambiance of a beautifully furnished and decorated real home -- a place for comfortable living with healing energy. Our home away from home can be your base to relax, play and enjoy yourself from which you can venture out as you wish -- locally or for example to Morelia, Patzcuaro, San Jose de Cobre . . . .
Troncones offers the quiet beauty of a beach village with soft sand, surf, great places to eat and lots of activities including swimming, walking, hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and kayaking. We have yoga, qigong and massage nearby (or in house if you prefer). We have great little shops for gorgeous gifts. In the nearby town of Majahua you can relax under a ramada and eat seafood, drink beer and sleep in hammocks. Or in Buena Vista, also close by, you can eat delicious tacos or traditional pozole. Further away (though only 20 minutes by car), in the towns of Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa, you can shop, bank, eat, hire a fishing boat or enjoy the nightlife.
Casa Chulada is located on the newly paved beach road between the hills to the east and the ocean on the west.
The house has 3 bedrooms – a master with king bed, two other generously sized rooms each with queen beds and their own bath (the blue bedroom bath is also available for use from the living and dining rooms). A highlight of the home is the beautiful large and fully equipped chefs’ kitchen with a Viking 6 burner/gas range with grill and huge island and breakfast bar.
There’s a 2 bedroom apartment above the garage -- one bedroom with queen bed and one with 2 twins (can be made king size if needed). There’s a kitchen, bath and dining - living room (which can be converted for sleeping if needed).
There are 2 outdoor living spaces between the house and the beach including a dining area and kitchen with a BBQ grill and a pizza oven. On the other side there’s a shade structure that can be used for lounging, dancing, yoga or . . . .
Chulada's marvelous pool (40’ x 18’) which has a stepped entry and a uniform depth of about 5’, is on the beach side of the property between the kitchen and the shade structure. We keep the pool relatively chlorine free -- cleaning frequently and treating the water with a copper and silver ion system that allows us to use the least amount of chlorine possible for cleanliness and safety. There’s an outdoor shower and pool bath nearby.
Walk down through the beach gate to the ocean where you will find sand beach (more or less depending on the season) and tide pools directly in front. You can relax in the tide pools and fish (the pelicans do!). Good swimming and surfing can be found within a very short walking distance - about a hundred meters south down the beach. There’s other fine surfing close by - at the point at Manzanillo Bay, La Boca or Saladita - and further out.
When you arrive, you will be greeted and introduced to the property by our property manager, Mariana Salas and/or Eduardo (Lalo). They will help you get settled and comfortable and check on you during and at the end of your stay. Jasmine, our housekeeper, who works days (except Sunday) will also be available to help you get acquainted and comfortable. Esteban, our gardener and maintenance man, will keep you supplied with water, show you the outdoor grill and oven and possibly be able to bring you some fresh lobsters or other seafood to cook.
You can get the whole house and the apartment for a group of 10 with option for additional sleeping if required. Or, if you have a smaller group, you may be able to get the house or the apartment separately (except typically for the holidays).
So come and enjoy with your family and friends. Stay for a week or a month.
Casa Chulada is ideal for special occasions, events, weddings or family reunions. We recently hosted a benefit for the Whales of Guerrero project which was attended by more than 70 people! Or just come on your own. Relax and enjoy a quiet or active getaway near a small town on the beach in the best house on the beach.
