Wonderful home, great owners, incredible vacation!

Words cannot accurately describe Dos Palmas, or Troncones. Our week vacation in November, 2010 to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary at Emmet & Kelly's home was the best vacation we have ever had! The home is incredible - the pictures do not do it justice. Everything was exactly as described. Troncones is a wonderful beach town where everyone is friendly - - both the locals and tourists.
We took our 3 year old son and he had a great time. He still asks when we can go back to Mexico! He built a new sand castle every day, played in the pool, and ran around the yard. Every evening, we walked a few doors down the beach to release baby sea turtles -- quite the experience!
There are a number of restaurants within walking distance and even more just a short drive away. We did not spend much time in Zihua or Ixtapa - - never felt like leaving Troncones!
The staff at Dos Palmas, Eva and Roberto, are incredible! Eva can arrange anything you want. If you're lucky, the next door neighbors, Bob and Suzanne will be there during your stay. Again, some of the nicest people we have ever met.
Emmet and Kelly are wonderful owners with great communication. Emmet answered all of our questions (and we had a lot) very quickly. He has traveled to many parts of Mexico and was very helpful in describing Troncones.
If you are planning on spending a week at Dos Palmas, spend two (one is just not enough!). Rent a car so you can drive around Troncones (it gets pretty dark at night) or go into Zihua or Ixpata. Talk to the locals. Try the local restaurants - - especially those that are on someone's front porch.
We cannot wait until we can return to Dos Palmas again. It truly was an experience of a lifetime. Thank you, Emmet and Kelly!
