About this property

Casa Viva Troncones is a tranquil Troncones vacation accommodation perfect for the traveler seeking solace or the surfer seeking uncrowded waves.  Our tropical beachfront property consists of three palm-thatched roofed bungalows each with a private bathroom built into a natural setting of local trees and plants.  The goal was to create a space that was both private and public, where you could get away from it all or immerse yourself in everything. Thus, we took two lots and created 3 private Casitas (“little houses”) that would serve as mini-suites. Then, we created a central area, the Area Comun (Common Area) where the pool, kitchen, dinning room, and sleeping porch are all located - the space for sharing time together like swimming, cooking, eating, playing cards, and hanging out. Thus, visitors could enjoy both time alone and time together with family and friends.  A shared multi-use building includes private nooks for reading and larger seating areas with swings and hammocks, a dinning room, kitchen and yoga room/sleeping porch along with a man-made tidal/swimming pool.

Casa Viva is about a 25-minute walk from the village of Troncones and a 10-minute bike ride. In the morning, the pelicans pass by like pilots on a bombing run, looking for lunch. You know it's afternoon when you see them flying back in formation. While Troncones point is only a 25 minute walk away there is also surfing right out in front of Casa Viva.

Casa Casa Viva was born from the vision of organic developers David Leventhal and Sandra Kahn and is built by local master craftsman David Martinez and his team of skilled Mexican artisans.

  • Three Private Casitas (one with its own kitchen)
  • Common Area with Kitchen, Dinning Room, Living Room and Pool

This property is 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!

This property is also located near N. Troncones Beach. Beach break peaks along this 3 mile stretch. While Troncones Point and Saladita may be higher quality waves with the right conditions this can be a really fun spot to pick your own peak and surf without a crowd. Recommended for a dawn patrol if you're staying in one of the beachfront homes or inns.

Surfer Reviews

Surfmatt took a Wavecation in June

Surf Rating:

Overall Satisfaction:
Breaks Surfed: Troncones Point, Troncones Beach Break, La Saladita
Favorite Break: Troncones Point
Wave/Swell Conditions: Chest high, glassy each morning

Thoughts I want to pass on:

Casa Viva is an open air masterpiece! The compound is filled with fruit and nut trees with the constant sound and sight of waves breaking along the shore. If you're looking for a property built with attention to detail, this is it. If you need lots of interior spaces, A/C and television programs, this is not your place.

Casa Viva is a perfect vacation property for a relaxing family getaway without all the distractions you have back home. The pool/living area is the best I've seen anywhere! The hanging chairs let you dangle your legs over the pool as you stare off to the ocean and horizon line. You'll feel yourself relax and unwind as soon as you arrive on the property. The pool is great for kids and has a huge tanning ledge for the ladies too.

The surf isn't great out front, too many rocks. If you're looking for a relaxing and eco luxury trip with an easy drive to the surf then this is your spot. Troncones Point surf spot is only about 1/4 mile away and La Saladita (one of Mexico's longest lefts) is only a 25 minute drive. This gives you plenty of opportunity to surf in the morning and still be back early to hang out with the family.

This is a great Wavecation for:

Families with Kids
Families with Teens
Girls Getaway
Luxury Seekers
Travelers without a Car
Business Travelers
