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 Guerrero

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

  • 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.

Small Town Mexican Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If your idea of the perfect Mexican vacation is a beautiful house on the beach in a small Mexican town away from the hustle and bustle of the big resort towns then Troncones and Casa Riscal is it. We recently had the privilege to spend 2 weeks at Casa Riscal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The house is ideally located right on the beach a short walk from the Troncones village. The sound of the surf immediately out the front of the casa has a very soothing affect and we spent many hours lounging and reading in the expansive living area as well as the chairs and hammocks closer to the beach. Also enjoyed the varied birdlife and were even blessed with a rare day sighting of the elusive tejone who posed long enough for a photo.

The casa is very well equipped with all the amenities you could think of including a very well stocked kitchen. We had the majority of our meals here, not hard to do with the easy access to fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood from the vendors who pass by daily. The restaurants in the area were also very good with our favorites being Mexicana for dinner and MiCasaSuCasa for breakfast.

While we did have a rental car for excursions to Zihua, nearby beaches etc. you could easily make do with the local taxis and/or buses.

Casa Riscal exceeds expectations and the pictures don't do it justice. Not always the case with many rentals. Highly recommended and we will definitely consider returning. Thanks for a great vacation Mike and Nancy

The good life!

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven weeks at Casa Riscal and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This private, open concept house sits under a soaring, amazingly constructed palapa roof. There are ocean views from all rooms.The well equipped and well stocked kitchen was perfect for meal preparation. The bedroom with its large comfortable bed is behind screened doors. The living area faces across the palm treed front yard to the ocean. We spent many hours in the heat of the day sitting under the shade of the palapa roof reading, gazing out at the ocean while enjoying the entertainment provided by iguanas and birds in the yard. We enjoyed sitting beachside watching surfers and horseback riders riding at sunsets. Buying fresh seafood from delightful Carmen and Ruben from their fish truck in the mornings when we hung our "Pescado" sign at the gate was terrific. Beach walks were amazing and we found beaches not far from lovely Troncones beach where we walked for miles in solitude. For us , a car was mandatory in order to explore the area and to shop in Zihuatanejo. The Centro Mercado in Zihuatanejo is a a colourful and lively example of the culture of the area. The touristy beaches of both Ixtapa and Zihauatanejo are interesting to see but pale in comparison to our favourite place of all....Casa Riscal! Many good dining out options available either by foot or by car close by. We dined every might al fresco at "home". The homeowners Mike and Nancy were a joy to deal with from our first enquiry to our departure. We highly recommend this property and plan to return.

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.
