About the property

3 suites each with ensuite, sleeps 6.

Dos Palmas was designed for those who wish to relax in a luxurious beach front home. Perfect for a honeymoon, two-three couples looking for paradise, or a small family.

The villa has three air conditioned suites, a gourmet kitchen, satellite tv, wi-fi, plus a stereo with indoor and outdoor speakers. The infinity pool is surrounded by lawn. All is less than a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean.

The upstairs master offers views to the ocean from the shower on the mountain side, all the way through the suite. There is a king sized bed and a living area with a seating area. Relax with coffee on the deck in the morning or a cocktail at sunset.

The lower suite is well sized with a king sized bed. Walk directly out your door to enjoy the deck or slip gently into the pool.

The newly built garden suite also has a king sized bed with it's own bath and views of the gardens and water feature.

Dos Palmas was completed in 2009. It is built like a ship on the ocean. It is a romantic spot for a couple or perfect for a small family looking for a beach getaway. Troncones and the surrounding area offer many activities that include whale watching, bird watching, surfing, biking, hiking and much, much more.

About Emmet Marshall

We are a Seattle couple and were both born and raised in the Pacific Northwest.

Emmet Marshall purchased this villa in 2009

Why Emmet Marshall chose Troncones

We have always loved the beach, sun, and waves. We have driven the Pacific Coast of Mexico from just south of Mazatlan to Acapulco. Troncones is far and away our favorite spot. The ocean is warm year round and the people are very friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is very comfortable and we felt really at home. We will definitely recommend Dos Palmas to our friends and hope to go back in the future.

Cannot Wait To Return

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented Dos Palmas for the second time in 3 years. We love this villa! The amenities, décor, features, staff, and attention to detail are beyond would could be described here.

The new botanical garden is over the top – what a beautiful addition to the property! Whether you want to ride the surf, walk the long beach, or just relax and enjoy the huge infinity-edged pool, this is the place to stay. In addition, the property provides a true Aman experience: meticulously designed to frame its natural setting while instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes.

We look forward to returning to Dos Palmas!

Spectacular Ocean-side Oasis on Sandy Beach

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 7 (children ages 24-9) who stayed at Dos Palmas the week after Christmas. From the moment we arrived, we were awed by this beautiful beach home and its spectacular ocean-side location. The spacious bedrooms, en suite bathrooms, and resort-style amenities like luxurious towels and linens made us all feel like we were staying in the master suite. The ocean breezes kept us comfortable at night and a/c was available for those who wanted it.

The photographs only offer a glimpse at the architectural uniqueness of this vacation home. We knew it was going to be incredible, but it’s the beach in front of Dos Palmas that surprised us the most. We didn’t expect the beautiful sand to stretch for miles. The water is warm and knee-deep way out to where the waves break. Our 9 year old enjoyed hours of boogie boarding while his older siblings surfed in the same area with a guide…$60 per hour for an instructor who came right to the house!

Troncones village is a hidden gem. It is authentic, charming and undeveloped. We felt perfectly safe walking or biking into Troncones for groceries, restaurants and services. Shopkeepers and restaurant owners in the village know Emmet and Kelly and the Dos Palmas caretakers and were always willing to share helpful advice and to extend hospitality to our family. We walked on the beach to Roberto’s several times for dinner, enjoyed organic lunches at Present Moment Resort, and became addicted to the French Press coffee and Pancakes de Abuela at Café Sol. We also utilized the well-stocked kitchen at Dos Palmas for some meals including pizzas we baked in the wood-fired oven. Abrahn, the groundskeeper, gladly made a daily run for fresh corn tortillas ($2 for a kilo!) and also found a source for fresh Dorado fillets! We would also highly recommend having Sofia prepare an authentic Mexican meal right at Dos Palmas. After a long day of travel, Sofia made us a delicious chicken mole dinner the first night we arrived…it was a perfect way to start our vacation in Troncones!

Beto, the caretaker, checked in with us each morning and he arranged for activities like surfing, massages, and fishing. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I also enjoyed working with the owners, Emmet and Kelly. They love Troncones and are willing to provide all kinds of resources and information on how to fully enjoy a vacation at Dos Palmas.

We can’t wait to come back!

Dos Palmas has created a euphoric environment. The lush landscape beautifully frames the serene surroundings: the crashing waves, the trickling waterfalls, the picturesque mountains, and the traditional architecture. Utopia is truly achieved at Dos Palmas while embodying the comforts of modern America. During our stay, we enjoyed lounging on the pool bed the warm sunshine, horseback-riding along the beach, and indulging in delicious food and drinks. We have traveled to Mexico on several occasions, and Troncones by far, is the most welcoming and appealing community we have visited. We will absolutely make another trip to Dos Palmas!

Serenity Discovered

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering Dos Palmas, I was instantly mesmerized by the lush, tropical (yet perfectly manicured) natural landscape. The sounds of the nearby ocean, lush fountains, and beautiful flowers magnified my senses. Every detail was attended to in this fabulous resort-like home. The space was expansive and private while maintaining the quaint quality of Mexico. I've traveled to Mexico and Europe on many occasions, and this by far, was the most beautiful place I have ever stayed.

The multitude of activities this vacation home offered were affordable and well executed. We were able to boogie board, surf, swim, sun ourselves, fish, ride "Dos Palmas" bicycles, and even cook in a wood burning pizza oven, all provided by this lovely home. We also had the opportunity to gallop horses on the beach and experience a baby turtle release.

Dos Palmas did not miss one opportunity or amenity to make this the perfect experience. I cannot wait to return and only hope there is not too big of a waiting line for the dates I desire!

Greatest Vacation Spot of all time!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Mexico a number of times over the years and have loved every visit! The people, food and atmosphere is one of my favorites! But Dos Palmas in Troncones was by far the most exceptional spot I have been. The accommodations are amazing. It is a the beautiful home of Emmet and Kelly and it has just that feel. A real home! Comfortable, warm and inviting. We surfed, cooked in the wood fired oven, swam in the pool and had drinks in the evening while relaxing and enjoying the company we were with. Troncones is a small town with great people shopping and restaurants all very authentic in style. It is located close to larger towns if you want to get to the market or experience a little larger "feel" for a day. I could go on and on but the words wouldn't do it justice! You have to experience it for yourself. If you want a truly authentic experience from start to finish this is the place I cant recommend it highly enough! We will be returning for sure!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. Just perfect. From the moment my family arrived at this house we began to relax-the view of the ocean, the infinity pool, the immaculately decorated house-it was like being in paradise. We did a great deal of exploring all over Troncones and were confident we chose well. The rock free beach in front of the home meant safe, endless boogie boarding in the incredibly warm ocean. Strolling around town or biking, visiting the lovely restaurants, taking tours with Costa Nativa-we were never bored and never felt a need to go to any of the larger resorts outside of town. The caretakers for this property also assured that the home was tidy and that all of our needs were met. Even in the face of medical emergency involving our child, everyone made sure that we were attended to, even coming to the hospital out of town to make sure we were okay. This home is perfect for a small family or three couples. It is beautiful and comfortable. Go. Just Go. I fell in love with the village of Troncones and this lovely property. Thank you Emmett and Kelly!!!
