The Property

This two-story “bungalow” was designed to be used by guests staying for an extended period of time who would want their own kitchen.

This Casita has a double bed and one twin bed. The bedroom is on the second story and has a view to the ocean from the porch. The bathroom is downstairs along with a complete kitchen. You can use either this kitchen or the Common Area kitchen (however most guest prefer to have Elvira cook and clean for them).

The second story porch provides additional sleeping space to set up a few single beds with mosquito nets as seen in the photos or you can just use it as your personal balcony.

About the Neighborhood

Troncones, Guerrero is a small coastal village located in tropical southwest Mexico. It is about 20 minutes north of the resort destination of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo and is serviced by the International Airport of the same name. Troncones was founded in the 1970s as a farming community.

There are many activities to enjoy including surfing, bicycling, kayaking, hiking, fishing, yoga classes, boogie boarding, snorkeling, swimming, paddle boarding or just walking our miles of pristine beaches. Staying active in Troncones isn’t about finding something to do, it is more about finding time to do it all.

We don’t roll up our sidewalks when the sun goes down either. Many restaurants and hotels offer entertainment in the evenings like live music, dancing and other special events.

Troncones Beach

Nearest break at 0.4 miles

Also known as Troncones South. Troncones is a powerful and barreling normal to long A-frame reef break. This 5 kilometer stretch of beaches offers several breaks for intermediate surfers and some that are beginner-friendly. The area is very rocky with multiple outcroppings along the beach; local knowledge here is key to finding the best peaks along the coast. Shortboards, funboards, and bodyboards are all good here. Consistency is year-round with the best conditions in summer.
