About this property

Casa Delfin Sonriente is a beautiful bed and breakfast and rental villa in Troncones near Ixtapa on Mexico's spectacular Pacific Coast. The longtime owner has a vast knowledge of the Troncones area surf breaks and can easily steer you to the best spots. The B&B style accommodations have a comfortable at home feel and provide an ideal getaway for families, couples, or even a girls getaway. When you need a break from surfing the area's great waves you'll find games galore at the house including bocci ball, a poker table, board games and more. On the beach in front of the house you can gallop along the shore on horses available for rent, explore nearby caves, hike through the jungle or try some of the wonderful fishing just right off shore.

Don't spend hundreds of dollars on airline baggage fees. There is a LARGE array of surfboards at the house available for any of our guests to use for a small fee. Contact the owner to find out exactly which boards are in stock.

Here's what The Surfer's Journal crew had to say about the place:

"The oceanfront Casa Delfin Sonriente (House of the Smiling Dolphin) is located about 15 miles north of Ixtapa and features squeaky-clean rooms, a refreshing pool and a complimentary breakfast. Proprietor Glen Novey (a contractor from Santa Cruz) will put you on the right break for the day, frequently joining in for the go-out. Accommodations range from $65 a day and up, reservations are a must. Be sure to reserve an air-conditioned Suburban and yes, all the point breaks have fresh lobster and cold beer joints right at the paddle-out spots."

The Casa Delfin Sonriente accommodates fourteen comfortably and can be stretched to easily accommodate as many as eighteen without overcrowding. There is a large main kitchen and two satellite kitchens with extra freezers and refrigerators, a large gas barbecue, and an exceptionally friendly and helpful live-in staff to prepare meals and keep your family comfortable throughout your stay. Children have a safe garden area for play as well as the pool if the ocean is too rough. Child care can be arranged if desired. Your family will love the large open areas, hospitable surroundings, and unique decor.  Casa Delfin Sonriente is not just your typical Mexico vacation rental, you'll feel more like you're staying at the beach home of a good friend.

This property is located near Troncones Beach. Beach break peaks up and down this 3 mile stretch. There are better surf spots nearby but with the right conditions this can be a really fun spot to pick your own peak and surf without a crowd. Recommended if you're staying in one of the beachfront homes or inns.

This property is also located near Troncones Point. A truly great left hand point that can break for long rides up to 200 meters offering big fast walls for the intermediate surfer. The bottom is rocky with occasional urchins on the inside so watch your step. Check the conditions from your hammock at one of the surf front homes. All in all this is a goofy foot paradise!

Thoughts I want to pass on:

Last week I stopped in to visit with Glen, the owner of Casa Delfin Sonriente. While I didn't stay the night, I spent about an hour on the property seeing all it had to offer. Glen is one of the veteran property owners in this area and has created a unique and beautiful place to stay. Glen also is a longtime surfer and can tell you all you want to know about surfing in the area.

Speaking of surfing, you can use any of the 40 or so surfboards they have on site... quite a quiver! The pool and deck are gorgeous and there is a communal kitchen to use, many guest ended up becoming friends and cooking together. The upstairs tree house sweets are really cool. They are open air (no A/C) and have good fans. Hanging from the ceilings are dozens of classic surfboards, so you can fall asleep at night dreaming sweet surf dreams. The downstairs rooms have A/C for those needing more creature comforts.

Casa Delfin Sonriente would be perfect for a group of guys (or girls) looking to split a room on a surf trip or a couple traveling on a budget. Breakfast is included and the prices are very reasonable, making this one of the best deals in Troncones. It's not 5 star, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's a clean property, very well kept, great views, incredible pool and sits right on the sandy beach plus Glen is one of the friendliest gringos you'll meet!

This is a great Wavecation for:

Short Board
Families with Kids
Travelers without a Car
