About the property

2-bedroom, 2-bath, on the beach overlooking the pool

This is wonderful two-bedroom vacation rental home with two levels. Downstairs, there is a large air-conditioned bedroom with a king-size bed, large bathroom, kitchen, living and dining area and shaded patio facing the ocean. Upstairs, reached by an outside staircase for additional privacy, is another large bedroom with a king-size bed and private bath. No air-conditioner here as the beautiful high palapa-style roof and good ceiling fan keep you nicely refreshed. The large covered upper terrace provides shade with amazing views of the sea, passing whales and birds.

The pool (shared with the owners, when they're onsite) is situated in the yard between the house and the ocean, allowing you sunset views while you float. There’s also a shared BBQ and patio area, all facing the beach.

The garden is luxurious and private with a vacant, wooded lot on one side.

Full Wi-Fi allows you to stay in touch with any news and emails “back home” on your iPad or other computer devices.

No need for a rental car. Almost everything you’ll want to do is within walking distance. Everything else is an inexpensive taxi ride, if you want to visit anything outside of the village.

The house has two bedrooms with king-size beds and as well as a couch where an additional guest could sleep. The kitchen is fully equipped. Both bathrooms are equipped with hot water showers. There is maid service three days a week. Bottled drinking water is provided.

About Judy Jones

The original house was built in 1998 by Kathy Durning, and American Spanish teacher who then lived in Alaska. Over the years, Kathy had moved from Alaska, and rarely visited Troncones. The property was a rental home, when Kathy was not there. In 2012, Jim and Judy purchased it from Kathy, and immediately began improvements, such as building a pool and an addition so they can live there when they retire. Jim and Judy visit the property frequently with their extended family and friends. They continue to rent the property through Tina Morse (Casa Ki) as property manager.

Judy Jones purchased this villa in 2012

Why Judy Jones chose Troncones

Jim and Judy purchased this property because of its location near the heart of the village, and the fact that its right on the beach. They have been visiting Troncones for many years and when the opportunity to purchase this small casa, they did.

What makes this villa unique

As soon as the sale was closed on the property, Jim and Judy began making improvements - installing the WiFi, the swimming pool were first, plus there were other small improvements, such as buying new mattresses, artwork, etc. They expect to have this home for many years and many generations.

Casa Tranquila - 2-story Villa on Playa Troncones, Mexico
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Highly recommend this beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

The location of Casa Tranquila is PERFECT. In my opinion, the stretch of beach out front is the best in Troncones. Very few rocks, beautiful fine sand, you can walk and boogie board to your heart's content... then come home, shower off and hop into the refreshing little pool right beside the beach! The kitchen looked well equipped but honestly, we only used the fridge and took advantage of the amazing little restaurants that we were surrounded by.

Judy was incredibly helpful and very responsive to my emails. Tina, the property manager was lovely and helpful (and is also very involved in the local cat and dog spay/neuter push!!! Talk about giving back!) and I can only say positive things about our experience. Thank you so much! I miss it already!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of four. The house is beautiful and located right on the beach. You are walking distance to multiple restaurants and the town.

Jim and Judy were awesome. They gave great advice on where to go, where to eat, and other suggestions of things to do.

We will definitely be back for another vacation. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your house.

Casa Tranquila is exactly as advertised. The house is well equipped and comfortable. The beachfront location with pool and nearby restaurants was perfect for our relaxation getaway. The owner provided us with good information on how to arrive and advice on excursions and restaurants.

Playa Troncones
Car: not necessary

Right on the beach in Troncones, Mexico – about a 20 minute drive north of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa in the Southern West Coast of Mexico.

Located a short walk north of the village center, Casa Tranquila is in the heart of the village’s great restaurants, surf and shore activities and active explorations, but still private enough to give you all the serenity and relaxation you need. Like most guests, you may want to enjoy a mixture of busy activities, with some serious “down time.” And we’ve got just about everything you might like in our little area: hiking, surfing, mountain biking, swimming in the ocean or the pool, fishing, boogie boarding, kayaking, bird watching, beach combing, body surfing, snorkeling, yoga and exploring nearby village markets. Other times, you might want to swing in a hammock in the shade and read your favorite book, float in the pool, or build sand castles on the beach.
