Troncones villa description
The beach is just steps away and the most awesome pool in Troncones even closer. Amazing ocean/beachfront views from the outdoor kitchen, dining area, living room, downstairs bedroom, upstairs 'palapa' dining room, and upstairs master bedroom.
Only 2 individual bungalows are available from Jan. 1 to April 30, 2014. The main house in not available until May 1.
The property has 5 bdrs (six beds) and 5 bathrooms. The main house contains 3 bdrs and bathrooms and is two stories. 2 individual bungalows are adjacent to the main house and each includes a queen bed, bathroom, outside sitting area and small kitchen. The upstairs master bdr has a king bed and it's own balcony and is near another bdr with 2 beds for kids or adults. Downstairs is another bdr with queen bed and ocean view. The upstairs 'palapa' room (underneath the palapa roof), has arguably the best ocean/beach/sunset views on the property- it is spectacular. Enjoy ocean and garden views as you ascend the winding, outside staircase to access the palapa room, it's round table and comfortable sofa.
The shallow part of the 50-foot-long lap section of the pool is steps away from the house, and the lap area gradually slopes deeper into a seven meter diameter, 8 foot depth deep end, with a large 'wet deck' in 2-3 inches of water for relaxing while staying cool and enjoying your favorite beverage...
You can often surf, bodysurf, and boogie board, right in front of our property; rinse off in the beachfront outdoor shower, and dip in the pool. Troncones is a charming small town (pop. 500), 'downtown' being just over a kilometer (2/3 mile) away by beach stroll or dirt road, with restaurants, small stores, and some shopping just minutes away. And, just about everything else you need is in Ixtapa resort (20 minutes away by car) or Zihuatanejo (35 minutes away), a lovely port city (sportfishing, diving/snorkeling, shopping, restaurants) of about 60,000. You can hire a 'panga' to go fishing from Majahua, a quaint Mexican village 10-15 minutes away by car or beachfront road 'combi' (bus). You will love it here!!

My wife and I stayed in a bungalow for a week. It was an excellent trip to traditional old Mexico away from the tourist resorts, but still had plenty of locals to assist with our poor Spanish speaking skills, and local restaurants offering good food. The beach was fabulous, safe, and had remarkably few people. Sunset horseback riders and good size waves created an iconic image of the place for me. We look forward to going back.

We stayed here for a week and had a fabulous time. Everything about this place was great. It is a beautiful, private, clean and well cared for home and property with a deluxe pool in front of one of the best areas for boogie boarding and body surfing on Troncones Beach. The beach is very safe, you can walk for miles and no one will bother you, even in the wee hours of the morning. We stayed in a bungalow which was very comfortable and you are steps from the pool and the beach. There is a full time (English speaking) caretaker family on the property who are very friendly and helpful. If Leela and Greg are there, even better, as they know everyone and everything about the area and are happy to help you connect with all types of local resources for surfing, biking, and snorkeling. They can also tell you which restaurant to go to each night to get the best sampling of food and entertainment. We are already planning our next trip there, where we will rent the entire property, (2 bungalows and the fabulous open air main house), for a larger group vacation. Thanks Leela and Greg for being such incredible hosts!

This house is beautiful, so comfortable and the location is amazing. We felt like kings and queens living in a castle! This is probably the best swimming/boarding spot on the whole beach... Just steps outside the back door. The pool, kitchen, yard are all big and beautiful. The staff who came to clean and care for the lawn were amazing. We would rent it again for sure.

We stayed in one of the bungelows and it was very comfortable! The shared kitchenette is more than sufficient with fridge, blender, ice provided for you in small freezer, bottled jug water also provided. Stop at the Bodega ( Mexican super walmart) on your way in from the airport in Zihua to pick up food! A fish and

Pictures don't do it justice! Best tortilla soup ever!
Pictures don't do it justice! Best tortilla soup ever!
This villa was so much more beautiful than we expected! The price is fantastic for what you get. Marisela cooked Mole, Enchiladas and the best tortilla soup I've had in my life. We went with 12 friends to celebrate my fiancee's graduation from pharmacy school. Everything was perfect. The pool, the beach. Very private. There are many authentic restaurants with amazing food within walking distance. Everyone is so friendly. This is not the place to go if you are looking for a touristy experience. This is REAL Mexico where the food is so much better and the beaches are deserted and beautiful but you will see chickens wandering your restaurant. There are virtually no bugs! The weather was perfect. The ocean is a little rough so don't plan on snorkeling around here and it's much better suited for seasoned surfers than beginners. We LOVED the villas although beware that the bathroom is part of the villa (only a partial wall separates) so that means you hear everything. I would do it all again any day though. AMAZING place! I recommend going to Zihua and doing the cooking school at Patio Mexico if you're a foodie.

My partner and I are travelling for a year from Sydney Australia. We arrived in Troncones and after staying here for only 3 days we decided to stay for a month. We looked at a lot of rental possibilities when we first arrived in Troncones and this was by far one of the best. Casa Firefly was a dream to walk in to with every detail attended to for our arrival. Clean crisp linen and beautifully laid out towels adorned by flowers all added a very welcome greeting. The house has a wonderful location being only minutes walk to Present moment retreat where we took Yoga classes daily and treated ourselves to wonderful healthy meals in their resturant. We did cook at home a fair bit during our stay as the open aired kitchen has a wonderful view of the pool and beach. We loved the pool as it offers opportunity for laps as well as relaxing on the shallow edge. Orbe and his wife Marisela are available for any maintenance and cleaning needs and to help with arranging Taxis if you need. We would definitely stay at Casa Firefly again if we are to return to Troncones as it made our stay here wonderful.

About the owner: We are Leela and Greg from WA. We've been spending our winters in Troncones for 10 years. Greg built a house on the beach south of Troncones and couldn't get enough of this area so after he sold that we decided we had to come back. We love the pristine beauty of this place and the incredible peace and calm not to mention all the other water sports and other activities available. We are avid cyclists and yoga enthusiasts.
Why the Owner Chose Troncones:
Troncones has just the right mix of gorgeous deserted beach feel and the sierra madres within view, while offering easy access to authentic mexican restaurants, mellow evening entertainment, good people, good coffee, yoga classes, massage and a gournet meal if you want to splurge.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The charm of Casa Firefly is apparent as soon as you arrive. Original design, outdoor kitchen and living room, spectacular views and stunning landscape make this not only an amazing rental house, but also give it a great home feel. The lap pool that opens up to a round pool is simply glorious. The beach outfront is free from rocks so it's safe to swim. Hammocks are ready for you to laze in under an enramada for shade. Outdoor grill for delicious fresh locally caught seafood.
