Troncones villa description

This lovely, artist-designed villa has wide-open proportions. neutral tomes, and crafted wooden details. It is found on a remote ocean beach on the Pacific coastline, known as the Mexican Riviera.

The beach south of Casa Bertha affords miles of unspoiled virgin beach lined by mature coconut trees and indigenous vegetation. Casa Bertha fronts the continuation of the same beach.

Casa Bertha is home to a sea turtle recovery project, supporting nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. During hatching season hundreds of baby turtles can be born in a single day. Guests are invited to participate if they so choose. A percentage of rental income is diverted to our turtle project.

Casa Bertha is the right choice for those who want to reconnect with the natural world, to return to an experience of oneness with nature that is absent from our daily lives. Sea, sky, wildlife, the movements from day to night and back again, all will heal the spirit. Casa Bertha is run on environmental principles.

Casa Bertha is approximately a 20 minute drive from Ixtapa, a modern beach resort, or a 30 minute drive from the small, but relatively well known resort located in the fishing village of Zihuatanejo. The villa is only about 10 minutes from the new beach community of Troncones. Between all of these nearby locations, you will find everything you need in the way of restaurants, entertainment and shopping.

The villa has three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom has a king or queen size bed. The dining and living rooms are large and open to magnificent views of the ocean.

The verandahs are lined with hammocks for relaxing, reading and gazing out to the sea. There is a constant breeze from the sea, which keeps the villa a comfortable temperature even on the hottest days.

The kitchen is a fully equipped, large eat in kitchen. The villa has the look and feel of a hacienda with its large rooms and very high ceilings. It’s a wonderful place for a get together with family, friends or a perfect private hideaway for a romantic honeymoon.

The staff has been with the house for years. Our cook, Guille, will prepare for you wonderful local specialties from natural ingredients. Our watchman, Benito, is on the premises to ensure your security.

There will be a manager to greet you at the airport on arrival. They can help you with car rental if needed and help with stocking the villa with food and drinks. You can make arrangements with the manager for restocking if you choose not to do your own shopping. The staff can also help you buy some fresh seafood directly from the local fisherman who will come by with their daily catch.

There is a cell phone and a handbook with maps and telephone directory at the villa for your convenience.

                                    all the rooms except sleeping rooms are open to the outside without exterior walls. so the bats do NOT stay in the garden; they dart through the living and dining rooms, and roost in the veranda between those rooms and the bedrooms. When you walk from one part to the other, the bats swarm around you. Their guana is another story too. Some people may find this just what they are looking for on vacation. We didn't, and we suggested to the owner that she tell prospective guests about the situation in advance. Plus, it is only when you arrive that you are told that due to crocodiles coming from a creek to the south of the house you should only walk to the north at night. Again, we love adventures on vacation and have gone lots of interesting places. But have your eyes wide open on this one.

                                    Our favorite vacation site in the entire world. The pictures speak for themselves. Absolute bliss. We stayed for 8 days and never once wanted to leave the property or beach.

                                    Located on a dramatic stony point with the Pacific on three sides, Casa Bertha has gained renown among our gringo and Mexican friends (we live in Mexico) as offering the best beach experience you can probably have. The bedrooms of the casa are large and comfortable, but you won't be spending much time there, you'll be too entranced with the miles of undeveloped, unpeopled beach. No wonder the sea turtles like this place so much! With Polynesian-looking mountains as a backdrop and uninterrupted groves of coconut palms, you could be in...let's see...Fiji, or Moorea. We love the pool, the hammocks, the large open living room/dining room and magical Ximena who if the time is right will let you watch sea turtle hatchlings make their way from their protected enclosure to the water. I'd recommend this beautiful place to anyone, and in fact have done so many times!

                                    Casa Bertha is a beautiful place to get away from the rest of the world. The house is right on the beach, where you can enjoy long walks or just relax by the pool. We lounged on the hammocks and admired amazing sunsets. We had a wonderful time in Casa Bertha wtih part of our famiy and our dogs and we hope that we can go again real soon!!

                                    A dream of a place, on a dream of secluded beach. The ocean surrounds the point where the casa is located -- from the master bedroom you feel surrounded by the sea -- which indeed is accessible from two directions. The casa is comfortable and gorgeously designed, and the cook Guille does a fantastic job with seviche, fresh fish, you name it. A place to unwind completely (unless you want to go to Zihua for frolic, it's about 25 minutes away).

                                    Casa Bertha is the perfect place to get away from the rest of the world. As soon as you enter in the front door, you become part of the beach that surrounds you on both sides. Nestled on the rocky point of this glorious beach, this hideaway was perfect for myself, my 3 children and 2 dogs. We felt at home right away. The home has a wonderful feel to it and you know that many families have created great memories here. The pool is perched overlooking the beach, with its natural formation you feel like you are in a lagoon. We lounged in the hammocks that overlook the beach, we went for long walks on a virtually deserted beach and had longer lunches in the palapa dining area. After our stay we felt refreshed and so lucky to have had this time together as a family. We shall return year after year!

                                    My family and I have stayed at Casa Bertha twice in the last year. We have found Ximena to be very friendly and helpful and she has always gone way beyond our expectations for whatever we asked for during our stay. This home is right on the beach, it is very earthy, and eco friendly. We were able during our last stay to help with the process of the sea turtles, building nest, releasing of the babies to the ocean it was all very educational for my daughters. They loved being able to help out. We will continue to come back to Casa Bertha as many times as we can. Lovely home, wonderful staff, great experiences. Thank you for such a terrific vacation.
