BEACH FRONT BLISS

Casa Riscal, a comfortable, classically designed and recently constructed beachfront home on a private 1/4 acre parcel includes a detached casita all offering a welcome respite from the rush and rigor of everyday life. The spacious fully screened master suite, with its breathtaking 180-degree view of the Pacific, pampers guests with luxurious linens and a well-appointed bath. The casita has a private bedroom and full, delightfully alfresco bath. Daybeds in the living area of the main house can provide additional sleeping accommodations for two people. Both the main house and casita are rented as one unit.

Prepare the catch-of-the-day in the fully equipped kitchen or wander into the village to sample some of the local fare at several delicious restaurants and cafes. If you are simply too relaxed to consider either of those options, catering is also available which can easily be arranged with local restaurants.

As relaxation is paramount at Casa Riscal, access to miles of sandy beaches, the sparkling blue Pacific, a private soaking pool and hammocks under a ramada beneath a lush Mangale grove, ensure you will return to the world rested and rejuvenated.

Located just 30 +/- miles north of Zihuatenejo in the charming and welcoming village of Troncones, Casa Riscal is purely and simply, bliss on the beach.

About Mike Hedley

We are real estate brokers in Sonoma, CA. and have resided in the Valley of the Moon for many years! Wine country at its best. Casa Riscal is our second home and we hope to share it with people of like mind.

Mike Hedley purchased this house in 1998

Why Mike Hedley chose Troncones

My wife Nancy and I always dreamed of a home on the ocean. Troncones presented a once in a lifetime opportunity and we seized the moment. We built our first home in 1998 on one of the two lots we purchased. We sold that house in 2009 and built the Casa you see here.

What makes this house unique

The ocean is in your front yard. The village of Troncones provides a friendly, intimate enviornment with smiling people and a general feeling of good will. The pace of life instills a sense of tranquility and casual rythmn. Things happen in their own time here without the usual hub bub of our daily lives. If total relaxation is your vacation objective then Casa Riscal is the place for you.

Peaceful bliss!

  • 5 of 5

What more can be said? This place was amazing. If you like quiet, secluded, serene getaways than this is your place. Off the beaten path, I would recommend having some Spanish in your vocabulary. Beaches out front weren't the best swimming ones but a bit further up and down the way were amazing swimming beaches. Great open concept layout. Never stressed about a thing while we were here.

Would recommend to all!

Great location and an excellent place to relax

  • 3 of 5

We had a really nice stay at the Casa Riscal and the location was excellent. Only a 5 minute bike ride into town. The property is quite large and access the beach directly (literally just open the gate and you're there). The house is spacious and note that it is open concept: living room and kitchen are all open on the beach side of the house. The guest sleeper is also open concept and I'd say this is best suited for 2 couples or a small group of friends. Lots of options to hang out on the property. The care takers of the property are great people, who are very nice and willing to help out.

Our only issue was getting a visitor from a raccoon most nights. The owners (Nancy and Mike) were very attentive / concerned to this issue and said that it's not typical but unfortunately not much that can be done. We kept the place spotless at night, but for some reason the raccoon came most nights and rummaged around a bit.

I would still recommend Casa Riscal to anyone as it was great and the pictures don't do the view justice, but just be aware that this style of house (which is very common to the area) is open!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week at Casa Riscal. It is the perfect place to unplug and reconnect with what is important. The beach is beautiful. The birds were stunning. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. (Don't miss the fish tacos that Olivia makes.) We highly recommend Casa Riscal.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house. From the moment we walked thru the gate we felt at home. The house was more than we hoped for. We were on Mexican time in no time. The house design is perfect for 2 couples. On the beach we watched the sunrise with coffee, the sunset and moonrise with a beer. Walks and swimming daily.

Although we were on vacation we cooked all our meals. Fish delivered daily, fruits and vegetables every other day. We just had to go to town for incidentals. The house is set up for whatever you are up for.

Casa Riscal and Troncones are a gem, we'll be back.

Lo mejor de lo mejor. ( La crème de la crème)

  • 5 of 5

We were long ago hooked on beautiful Troncones and have visited every year for the past 14 years. It is simply a perfect location in terms of the dependable good weather, the wonderful long beach (a 30 minute plus walk in each direction), good dining spots, reasonable prices, access to convenience shopping, personal safety, warm hospitality of the local Mexicans and of course the beautiful Pacific Ocean on one's doorstep.

Our visit this year included Casa Riscal for the first time and that was the proverbial "icing on the cake". We value our privacy and prefer to be self-sufficient in terms of facilities and living space. Most accommodations on Playa Troncones involve a sharing of common areas such as cooking, eating and relaxation. Casa Riscal, on the other hand, is completely private. The facilities are among the best on the beach and the rooms and gardens are very well maintained by a friendly staff. Mike and Nancy are truly professional in their management of this dream-like property. We have already booked for next year.

A true oceanside TREASURE

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier during our stay at Casa Riscal. Perfect fit for two couples. We slept in the casita - HEAVENLY - I felt like la princesa de la naturaleza with the four post bed, primo bedding and gauzy, airy mosquito netting while iguanas stroll through the casita's lush no-ceiling bathroom. This home is ridiculously peaceful - grab your book and a cold one and enjoy the sun, sand and surf! Days of strolling and lounging, snacking, birdwatching. Nights of happy chatter, cards and dominoes, gecko sightings. Quiet. Easy. Especially grateful for the cool-water soaking tub just off the open air living room. Hosts' thoughtfulness in planning the living, dining and sleeping spaces is thorough and complete. They know how to build a truly fine home with all the amenities you need and none of the clutter and chaos you don't - it's a simple life down there in Troncones. I can't wait to go back.

If you're looking for a unique adventure call Alejhandro and arrange for a guided tour. His store is next door to the coffee shop across from Present Moment . He can tailor the experience to your specifications or suggest alternatives. There is a local phone book at the Casa with phone numbers for all the restaurants, hotels and various other services.There is an excellent new restaurant on the beach named Brias Del Mar located on the ocean side of the street just a little south of the T. Definitively the best food and value around.
