About the property

Villa, 5-6 Bedrooms + Lofts, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-18)

Welcome to Casa Majahua (ma-ha-wa)! It is our pleasure to share our home with guests from around the world. We have spent quality time preparing Casa Majahua for visitors by sharing our home with family and friends. This allowed us to decide what was ‘just right’ so our guests can enjoy Casa Majahua the way we do.

We have a handful of ‘themes’ that we ensure are present at Casa Majahua:

* Nature

* Food

* Laughter

* Music

* Private & Communal areas

Casa Majahua was built with an open floor plan so guests can experience the unspoiled natural beauty surrounding the property. There are ocean views from the living room, dining room, upper decks and each casita. The construction consists of local soft and hard woods (most of which are sustainable) and artisan craftsmanship is seen in every door, window, cabinet and gate.

But natural and architectural beauty is not the only thing that sets Casa Majahua apart from other rentals. We also offer on-site personal attention during your visit. As part of your reservation, you will be greeted by our Property Manager, Alejandro or his wife, Mariana when you first arrive. They will walk you through the property and explain everything to you. Mariana will also check in every other day to ensure you have everything you need. She can help you arrange tours or provide help in other areas (i.e. shopping). Also, a cook can be arranged for $100 pesos per person per day (plus you pay for the food itself). Please indicate whether you'd like this additional service when you make your reservation.

Lastly, Casa Majahua staff are on-site every day to clean living spaces (sheets are changed every 3 days...towels more often based on guest need), water plants and clean the pool. We also have a night watchman, Don Tino, who rounds out our 24 hr security.

Property Description:

Casa Majahua is made up of five separate structures--a common area, two identical casitas, a guest quarters and a tower. The combined living area is just over 6000 square feet on almost a half acre of land. Please see the site plan that is shown as one of the pictures.

The first floor of the common area houses the kitchen, dining room, living room and a full bathroom. The dining room table can accommodate up to 18 people. The living room is connected to the infinity pool and has direct access to the swim-up bar, not to mention direct access to the beach and views of the ocean and Majahua Point. There are stairs in the living room to the second story as well.

The pool area includes a swim up bar, steps into the pool from the living room, a wrap-around deck, an attached hot tub and a shower as you come in from the beach.

The second story of the common area contains one enclosed bedroom/entertainment room (full futon) which is air conditioned. The rest of the second floor is an open loft area, which can accommodate overflow sleeping. Another unique feature of this level is a 'gangplank' that traverses the dining room to a deck where you can watch the sunset.

Each of the two casitas has an outdoor living room with sleeping chaise lounge (full size - can accommodate 2 people). There is an inside bedroom (king bed) on the first level with large full bath, and the second level is a loft area, which can be used for overflow sleeping (full size futon). The casitas copy the common area 'gangplank' effect, and each have a little deck to look out to the ocean. The casitas utilize palapa roofs that allow in sea breezes, therefore, no air conditioning is utilized.

The Guest Quarters contain two separate air conditioned bedrooms (queen bed) and one shared full bathroom.

The Tower is two stories. The first story contains the laundry facilities. The second story is one bedroom (queen bed) with an attached full bathroom. This room also enjoys strong ocean breezes, thus no air conditioning.

About Shawn

Four friends who wished for a little escape from the work-a-day life.

Shawn purchased this villa in 2008

Why Shawn chose Troncones

We wanted to be on the beach away from the tourist throngs.

What makes this villa unique

Being as close to unspoiled nature as you can possibly get.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed warm days with the temperature varying just a few degrees cooler at night. It was never too hot due to the soothing sea breeze. Every morning we were greeted by the smell of fresh coffee, a lovely breakfast cooked just for us by the kitchen staff, and the gorgeous resort like surroundings of Casa Majahua. The architecture and flow of the property is truly mesmerizing.

For some of us, our waking destination was straight to the beach to see what treasures the ocean waves had deposited on the sand from the night before. For others, it was a lounge chair in the sun, a cool morning dip in the infinity pool, or a warm soak in the seaside jacuzzi. Our days were spent in true vacation style... swimming, sunning, exploring, surfing, shelling, reading, napping, kayaking, beach walking, whale watching, tai chi class, massages, sipping cocktails, snacking on guacamole and chips, playing dominoes, savoring a cold beer, enjoying the abundant wildlife, visiting the local restaurants and gazing at beautiful sunsets. Most nights, before heading to bed, we would lay back in the poolside loungers and watch for falling stars. We were never disappointed. Once in bed we would close our eyes to the sound of waves breaking on the beach lulling us to sleep and into dreams of the next day's adventures.

We are so very grateful to have had the opportunity to enjoy this very special slice of "heaven on earth". A huge thank you goes out to owner Robert Huggins for going above and beyond to insure our stay at Casa Majahua was a memorable one. We had a great time! Thank you!!

Absolutely spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week with the family at Casa Majahua. Shawn was very responsive to questions getting things set up, and all of the staff on site were super welcoming and worked hard to ensure everything was perfect.

The buildings are beautiful, and I can't say enough about the cooling service - definitely worth it. The little town of Majahua had some great restaurants and an amazing beach a short walk away, and our daughter (2 years old) really loved the beach in Troncones.

We are looking forward to another visit to this magical place. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Can't say enough...

  • 5 of 5

Second time we stay at this villa and can't say enough.

Everything was more than perfect; the caretakers, the villa, the cleanliness, the location, the pool, Alejandro, etc., etc.

Hope to make this our return point each year.

Came for my son's 17th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Came to fish, but weather was hot and muggy. Fishing was a little tight, so we only went one day. But we had many hours poolside at Casa Mahajua, once again Sean was amazing from the start.I stayed here multiple times

( with both large groups and small groups)!I will always return here if it is available. Sometimes I want to hold back on the review, but the owners and the staff are so great! I have to give them mucho credit! It's an awesome place... just don't try to book it when I need it haha!! Gracias por Todo! Can't wait to come back!

Ps... every review I have to mention Gia she is absolutely amazing to help with anything you need and is the best cook in the whole area

Very unique place. An especially good option for those looking for a cool/unique surf trip.

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion - eight adults and eight kids. Plenty of space. The view from the house is great. The people supporting the place are awesome - Alejandro, Guille, Poli, Don Tino. We hung out at the house/pool most of the time. We visited town on the house bicycles and we walked to the beaches to the south and north. It is hot and there can be bugs. Prepare for those elements and have a blast.

Incredible property and setting

  • 5 of 5

We went to Casa Majahua for our annual family vacation. There were 12 of us in the group. The home was beautiful and the staff were terrific. I would be more careful about the dates next time because we were at the beginning of the rainy season which made for some uncomfortable weather conditions and flies. The larger sleeping rooms are not climate-controlled (being open to the air) and it made sleeping challenging.

I take responsibility for the choice of dates - with grandchildren in 4 different schools, this is the only time we have to get together.

Highlights of our week - horseback riding on the beach and the turtle sanctuary and release at Roberto's Bistro.

Surfing a large draw to this area, but the area also enjoys good fishing and wonderful bird and wildlife watching. The Sierra Madre de Occidental Mountain range can be seen about 100 KM to the East.

Other Activities: kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing
