Troncones Estate Rental Photos and Description

The Ocean Front Estate..... Casa Colorida.....a private Beachfront Compound. We are located on three acres of sandy Pacific Beachfront. The grounds are enclosed with gated privacy walls. Hand tiled sidewalks, Mexican colonial fountains, sculpture, garden trellises, foot baths, palms, banana trees, flowering trees and plants enhance the garden area.

Casa Colorida was built with thick rock and adobe walls, tile and palapa roofs, hand hewn structural posts (the size of trees), rock arches, black rock walls, and heavy wooden Mexican doors.

***Casa Colorida - Beachfront - Luxury 7700 square foot of living space, 7 king bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and with two fireplaces. The Oceanfront Master Bedroom Suite opens to an ocean front terrace. The Villa has 20 foot ceilings black rock walls, a huge Mexican gourmet kitchen with beachfront bar, massive oceanfront verandahs, and gorgeous mesquite and handpainted furnishings. The mesquite dining table seats ten, and is located on the beachfront verandah.

There are seven King Bedrooms each with private bath.

The Villa Casa Colorida pool was chosen as a photoshoot site for the 2000 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. The pool, which overlooks the ocean, contains a bar, partial palapa shade, and water cascading over large boulders. The Colorida pool has a shaded palapa entertainment area, grill and a massive black stone and pebble sunbathing terrace. The Colorida pool also has a round pool bathroom with palapa roof..........and an outdoor shower!

Adjoining the pool area is the seperate, round, beachfront Palapa Patio Nicole...with circular sofas, palapa roof, and yet another entertainment area with grill. The Nicole patio is the perfect, romantic, and private, sunset watching experience.........

Also, the Villa Casa Colorida has the Terraza Mariana....a third, huge oceanfront patio, on the southwest corner of the Casa Colorida Compound. The 10 meter by 8 meter waterfront patio has huge curved sectional sofas and a Palapa dining area.

Our gardens have four fabulous Mexican fountains, with seating, throughout the three acre gardens. Sculpture and art are placed within the gardens.....Casa Colorida is exquisite.

Casa Colorida has the LONGEST STRETCH OF BEACHFRONT in Troncones.

The COLORIDA property is DIFFERENT from other beachfront properties because we have the LUXURY OF SPACE. Please know that you may rent the entire Casa Colorida Compound -(1-7 Bedrooms).

The Casa Colorida beachfront property is a three minute walk to the nearest waterfront restaurant. Troncones has about 25 restaurants, little tienda stores, shops, and fabulous food...the temperature is 80-90 degrees, & sunny, all year long. Our staff provides maid service.

About Ann Hatfield Merritt

I grew up in the farm land of Iowa, and my husband is from Long Island........we have lived in Denver and the Rockies for most of our life. Recently we decided to change the scenery, and moved to Las Vegas. We also have always loved living in a Latin country, also.....and Mexico is the most magical........the food, the smiling faces, the history, and the artistic creativity was our idea of the ultimate in beach living. And living on the Pacific Ocean, with warm weather every day of the year, on a sandy beach, in a charming that's paradise.

Ann Hatfield Merritt purchased this estate in 1995

Why Ann Hatfield Merritt chose Troncones

My husband and I came to Troncones 18 years ago, when there was no electricity, dirt roads, and no amentities except one beachfront restaurant, the old Burro Burracho. After a few days of margaritas on the beach, we began to notice a house for sale in the distance.....a little way down the beach. The property had a magnificent beach, was huge and deep, had magestic palm trees, and wide open spaces all around it. The waves and the surf, in front of the property were magestic. The beach is long and class beachfront.

What makes this estate unique

Casa Colorida is a unique Estate Hacienda experience...three acres of beachfront. Thousands of palms, flowers, and trees. Luxury infinity pool with waterfall. Built in the traditional old world style......stone, antique doors from Puebla, fireplaces, and yet possessing all the modern room arrangements and amentities. Exquisite art, fabulous mesquite tables, sprawling across this private estate. Enjoy the space on the longest private beachfront in Troncones.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've been meaning to followup since our wonderful week in late Feb/early March at Casa Colorida and Troncones. It was, of course, just as we expected--even better really. The group was large but everyone "fit in," we had virtually the entire compound to ourselves the whole time we were there, and the weather was, well, just perfect. One of the best memories was having Gaby make a huge pan of Chile Rellenos for us, stuffed with fish, squid and camarones! She told me how she made it, en Espanol, but I'm sure the important ingredient (besides the Maggi sauce!) was that little bit of 'Gaby's love' of good food and just doing things well! She's amazing--as I'm sure you know!

...... year after year, Troncones still retains that special something, a uniqueness, that keeps us returning. Sure, there are more houses, and improvements that are welcome (like the road being paved, for instance) but it largely remains the place we first walked into in 1998 with our backpacks on!

On behalf of all of us---thank you, THANK YOU for creating such a perfect place for us to "retreat" to recharge, get warm, relax, and get healthy--in both body and mind . . . we have such great memories from so many years of staying at your place, and we look forward to many more!
