CASA COLIBRI AT TRONCONES POINT

Troncones House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful ocean & mountain views, self-sufficient & inexpensive accomodation

Casa Colibri - This beautiful 'Casa del Pacifico' style home exemplifies Mexico beach living at it's best. Our home offers luxuious accommodation for 4-6 people in a king master suite, and a small mezzanine bedroom above the master suite, ideal for children or singles, and the large comfortable settee in the great room for cool nights under the artisan palapa roof. The Great Room has beautiful ocean and mountain views and contains the kitchen with all the amenities for making your own meals. It is a wonderful gathering place for watching the sun and moon sets.

The property is fenced for privacy and has a lovely garden dotted with hammocks perfect for the afternoon nap in the shade. Beautiful Manzanillo Bay is less than a 5 minute walk for surfing, snorkeling, fishing, beach combing and tide pool exploring. A variety of restaurants are a short beach walk out our front gate. On-site surfboard rentals are available as well.

About Tom Donne

I am a surfer, sailor, an environmentalist, and a lover of life. I enjoy meeting fellow travelers who revel in the art of adventuring and exploration of new places. I love nature and all the diversity it has to offer, especially in coastal Mexico. I grew up in southern California in the 1950s before it became incredibly developed in a maze of freeways and urban sprawl. I remember the avocado and citrus groves, and the clear days when one could see all the Channel Islands off the coast. Now, I find the beauty of my childhood still alive in the coastal area around Troncones. I think the mangos and the avocados are incredible! Yes, I am a natural foodie, too!

Tom Donne purchased this house in 1997

Why Tom Donne chose Troncones

We bought the property in 1997 and were some of the first expatriates to build. We loved the natural, earthy and feminine aspects of Mexican architecture aptly named 'Las Casas del Pacifico' style. The style known for open and airy shelters designed to co-exist with nature using the local, natural and recycled construction materials. We started small and eco-friendly with solar, wind, composting toilets, and a grey water system for the garden - most of which we still maintain. We love the proximity to one of the best surfing areas in the world and the tranquil beauty of little Manzanillo Bay within a short walk.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the natural beauty and the local community of wonderful, charming people. We wanted to encourage more Eco-friendly awareness among the local and expatriate community. We created a zero-scape garden - sandy, soft on the feet with small descansos - areas of rest through out the garden. We left all the natural vegetation and chose the bare spots to build. We love the warmth of the environment and the community.

About 20 miles north of Ixtapa, and Zihuatanejo, on Mexico's gorgeous Pacific coast, is a small gathering of surf spots known as ondas hermosas. We built our retreat in the heart of this area, removed from the tourist hustle and steps from the sand. Like the locale, our accommodation has a relaxed, natural atmosphere, and two full-time staff who can help arrange surf and fishing trips. Between the nearby waves, sunshine-soaked surroundings and easy sense of equilibrio, Troncones Point Hostel can offer a relaxing and inexpensive vacation to individuals, families and small groups. Only 20 minutes from Ixtapa where golf, sailing, SCUBA, and specialty trips to cultural areas can be arranged. The Club is located only a 3 hour drive to Patzcuaro, the first capital of Mexico and world renown arts and cultural center for Day of the Dead festivities in the small villages around beautiful Lake Janitzio. Troncones has a variety of restaurants offering local Mexican and international cuisine, massage therapists and yoga studios. A truly relaxing 'get-away from it all' place to enjoy nature and re-energize your life.
