|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
THE TWO BUNGALOWS ARE THE ONLY ROOMS AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 18, 2014 UNTIL MAY 1, 2015. The beach is just steps away and the most awesome pool in Troncones even closer. Amazing ocean/beachfront views from the outdoor kitchen, dining area, living room, downstairs bedroom, upstairs 'palapa' dining room, upstairs master bedroom and bungalows.
The property has 5 bdrs (six beds) and 5 bathrooms. The main house contains 3 bdrs and bathrooms and is two stories. It is available for rent May 1-Nov 18th. 2 individual bungalows, available for rent year round, are close to the main house and each includes a queen bed, bathroom, outside shared living and dining area and small kitchen. Each bungalow has its own private patio.
The upstairs master bdr has a king bed and it's own balcony and is near another bdr with 2 singles for kids or 1 king for adults. Downstairs is another bdr with queen bed and ocean view. The upstairs 'palapa' room (underneath the palapa roof), has a glorious ocean/beach/sunset view - it is spectacular. Enjoy ocean and garden views as you ascend the winding, outside staircase to access the palapa room, it's round table and comfortable sofa.
Do you love to cook? You will not find a more beautiful kitchen anywhere. You're view is spectacular. This is heaven for foodies! Guadelupe, our onsite housekeeper will even shop and cook meals for you if you like! Let us know if you'd like our special bed and breakfast rate!
The shallow part of the 50-foot-long lap section of the pool is steps away from the house, and the lap area gradually slopes deeper into a seven meter diameter, 8 foot depth deep end, with a large 'wet deck' in 2-3 inches of water for relaxing while staying cool and enjoying your favorite beverage...
You can surf, bodysurf, and boogie board, right in front of our property because we are on the clearest stretch of rock free beach; rinse off in the beachfront outdoor shower, and dip in the pool.
We have 3 glorious hammocks for hanging around in. 1 is a double for sharing lazy moments with your honey!
Troncones is a charming small town (pop. 500), 'downtown' being just over a kilometer (2/3 mile) away by beach stroll or dirt road, with restaurants, small stores, and some shopping just minutes away.
Present Moment retreat is a 5 minute walk down the beach for yoga, qigong and dance classes daily as well as evening entertainment and great food and atmosphere.
Ixtapa resort (20 minutes away by car) or Zihuatanejo (35 minutes away), a lovely port city (sportfishing, diving/snorkeling, shopping, restaurants) of about 60,000. You can hire a 'panga' to go fishing from Majahua, a quaint Mexican village 10-15 minutes away by car or beachfront road 'combi' (bus). You will love it here!!

We are Leela and Greg from WA. We've been spending our winters in Troncones for 10 years. Greg built a house on the beach south of Troncones and couldn't get enough of this area so after he sold that we decided we had to come back. We love the pristine beauty of this place and the incredible peace and calm not to mention all the other water sports and other activities available. We are avid cyclists and yoga enthusiasts.
Leela Francis and Greg Hillyer purchased this villa in 2013
Troncones has just the right mix of gorgeous deserted beach feel and the sierra madres within view, while offering easy access to authentic mexican restaurants, mellow evening entertainment, good people, good coffee, yoga classes, massage and a gournet meal if you want to splurge.
The charm of Casa Firefly is apparent as soon as you arrive. Original design, outdoor kitchen and living room, spectacular views and stunning landscape make this not only an amazing rental house, but also give it a great home feel.
The lap pool that opens up to a round pool is simply glorious. The beach outfront is free from rocks so it's safe to swim. Hammocks are ready for you to laze in under an enramada for shade. Outdoor grill for delicious fresh locally caught seafood.
From December to May each year, you can also choose to come to Casa Firefly for a personally designed 1 or 2 week cleansing retreat with Leela, Detox Coach, Yoga Teacher and Embodiment/Aging Radiantly Mentor.

This was our 1st trip to Troncones, a remote town about 20 minutes north of "Z". With a 3 mile long unspoiled beach front bordered by coco's, cozy seafood restaurants, a yoga facility with amazing restaurant(Present Moment Retreat), horseback rides, moderate surf for boggie boarding, and miles of bicycling(dirt or road),,,plenty to keep you busy all day and return to your bungalow or villa ready to relax. We stayed a week in one of the bungalows. Cooking facilities were available including a shared refridge with all the necessities. A beautiful pool, yoga deck, lounging area and gardens keep you cool when the sun gets hot at midday. Sunsets are gorgeous and can be enjoyed on the immediate property or down on the yoga deck. Evenings are quiet(except for the sound of the surf which lulls you to sleep) but a short walk to town provides nightly entertainment. If you want to go into Z or Ixtapa there is public transportation. Greg and Leela have gone overboard to make their bungalows and villa comfortable and clean. If you would like to go bike riding with a local expert then Greg is your guy-but be prepared to be challenged on the hills! 1st class surfing is just up the road a few miles and getting there is a fun adventure in traveling through villages and farmland.
My wife and I had an incredible time at Casa Firefly. As birders we appreciated the numerous guidebooks and information available on-site, as well as the assistance of Greg and Leela in learning about the local area's birding opportunities. And the locals are friendly(helps to know a little Spanish) and gracious.
I could go on and on about our trip to Troncones and staying at Casa Firefly. In short we had a great time and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the rural but beautiful part of Mexico. Life's a beach.
We have been going to Troncones for many years now and this was our 4th stay at this house and the 1st time since Leela And Greg purchased the house. A lot of improvement has been made to the house! It is now even more comfortable than it used to be. It is one of the best house in Troncones. This time we rented the whole property for 3 weeks with my whole family (9 persones from 4 months old to 81 years old) everybody had a blast and more than enough room. The pool is amazing and the ocean is only steps away. The pictures are very accurate. Efren (caretaker of the house) is very friendly and did a great job making our stay confortable. Troncones is a great town with everything that you need (restaurants, convenient stores, pharmacy, surf rentals...) and the locals are amazing. We hope to be able to go back again soon. We would definitely recommend this property.
My family had a very good time staying at Casa Firefly. We stayed in one of the bungalows. Leela and Greg were great hosts, making our stay very comfortable. The property was very clean and beautiful, the photos are very accurate. My 5 year old son had an amazing time swimming in the pool, and so did we. The ocean was steps away, and the beach was clean and perfect for swimming and surfing. The village of Troncones was so much fun, with all of the ammenities that you would need within walking distance. We all had a blast and would recommend this property. We would love to go back some day.
My wife and I stayed in a bungalow for a week. It was an excellent trip to traditional old Mexico away from the tourist resorts, but still had plenty of locals to assist with our poor Spanish speaking skills, and local restaurants offering good food. The beach was fabulous, safe, and had remarkably few people. Sunset horseback riders and good size waves created an iconic image of the place for me. We look forward to going back.
We stayed here for a week and had a fabulous time. Everything about this place was great.
It is a beautiful, private, clean and well cared for home and property with a deluxe pool in front of one of the best areas for boogie boarding and body surfing on Troncones Beach. The beach is very safe, you can walk for miles and no one will bother you, even in the wee hours of the morning.
We stayed in a bungalow which was very comfortable and you are steps from the pool and
the beach. There is a full time (English speaking) caretaker family on the property who are very friendly and helpful.
If Leela and Greg are there, even better, as they know everyone and everything
about the area and are happy to help you connect with all types of local resources for
surfing, biking, and snorkeling. They can also tell you which restaurant to go
to each night to get the best sampling of food and entertainment.
We are already planning our next trip there, where we will rent the entire
property, (2 bungalows and the fabulous open air main house), for a larger
Thanks Leela and Greg for being such incredible hosts!
This house is beautiful, so comfortable and the location is amazing. We felt like kings and queens living in a castle! This is probably the best swimming/boarding spot on the whole beach... Just steps outside the back door. The pool, kitchen, yard are all big and beautiful. The staff who came to clean and care for the lawn were amazing. We would rent it again for sure.
Skateboard Park, Yoga, massage, tide pools, meditation center, local school and library, volunteer opportunities, language school.
