About the property

2-bdrm house and 1 bedroom bungalows with kitchens on a large private property.

You won't find any all-inclusive resorts in Troncones. And there are no shopping malls, casinos or dance clubs either. There's not even a traffic light here. What you will find is a quiet seaside village along a 3 mile stretch of beautiful unspoiled beach.

The Casa Canela (Cinnamon house) is the cottage with two master suites, full kitchen, dining and living rooms and large covered furnished patio. There's even stairs to the roof where you can relax under the umbrella or soak up the sun in private.


$174/nt, $1096/week, $3945/ 4 weeks or 28 days.

Minimum stay of 6 days.

The Duke and The Frida are one bedroom units, rented separately. Each within a full bathroom, kitchen (shared if other room occupied) and has a large furnished covered patio. The Frida bungalow is air-conditioned with an additional private, palapa-covered porch, kitchenette/bar and lounge.

The Duke Summer Rates:

$49/nt, 309/wk and $1098/4 weeks or 28 days.

Winter Rates:

$59/nt, $370/wk and $1335/4 weeks or 28days.

The Frida (Air-conditioned and private patio) Rates

$78/nt, $/wk and $/4 weeks or 28 days

Daily housekeeping services are included (except for Sundays when our housekeeper has the day off).

Although Troncones may be known internationally for it's surfing, there's plenty of other activities as well; Eco tours, horseback riding, boogie boarding or body boarding (anyone can learn in 5 minutes), biking, a skateboard park and many local restaurants offering fresh seafood, local and international cuisine. The beach is shallow, so 50 yards out and the water is waist high.

Just across the street from us is Roberto's Bistro, who offers the perfect place to enjoy a cold cervaza on the beach in the afternoon and the best dining in Troncones in the evening. It's here where the baby turtles are released and race to the sea almost every evening at dusk. If there's not enough to keep you busy here, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are just 20 minutes away where there are two golf courses, fishing charters, shopping, an aquatic park with water slides, museum, , parasailing, scuba diving & snorkeling tours, sunset cruises and you can even swim with dolphins.

And that is probably the reason you've chosen to stay in Troncones - to get away from all that. Here it's possible to walk down the beach for an hour and not see another person.

The property is right across the street from probably the best part of the beach in Troncones.

We supply body boards and bicycles to share with our guests.

If you've never heard of Troncones, please spend a few minutes to look it up if you're looking for a vacation at an incredible location.

The Turtle Sanctuary is located on the beach directly across the street from Casa Canela. Turtles are released almost nightly at dusk. You get lucky and even see baby turtles run right by you anywhere on the beach if you're there watching the sun set! There is a lagoon about 15 minutes away where the river meets the sea. It's home to hundreds of birds and surrounded by palm trees with the Sierra Madre mountains providing the perfect back drop.There is a skateboard park in the village. Diving and snorkel trip can be arranged. There is usually plenty of dry driftwood there to build a camp fire to cook or just gaze into in the evening. You could spend the entire day there and not see another person.

Troncones is a small village of about 500 people, so the amenities are limited to a couple of small stores (tiendas) which offer milk, bread, beer, some fresh vegetables, cold drinks, ice cream beach toys, etc. Most of the year, a fruit and vegetable truck makes it's way up and down Beach Road every other day whith fresh local fruit and veggies - the strawberries can be amazing. There are a very few beach vendors selling locally made art, hammocks, hand painted bowls, etc.. If you're looking for unique souvenirs or collectables there are only a few shops in town, so whatever you may be looking for ask us, we'd be happy to direct you to what can be found in town. If it's a big shopping spree that you're after, you may want to take a quick trip into Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo which has a large a souvenir district offering jewelry and hand crafted local art. Ixtapa and Zihua offer everything you'd want from a busy resort town and only 20 minutes away. Keep in mind that here are no bank machines in Troncones. If you're planning to eat at home a lot, then a trip into Zihua is recommended for groceries as there are two huge food stores there. Please let us know what you're needs may be and we will do our best to see what we can to arrange before your arrival.
