Welcome to Casa Majahua (ma-ha-wa)! It is our pleasure to share our home with guests from around the world. We have spent quality time preparing Casa Majahua for visitors by sharing our home with family and friends. This allowed us to decide what was ‘just right’ so our guests can enjoy Casa Majahua the way we do.
We have a handful of ‘themes’ that we ensure are present at Casa Majahua:
* Private & Communal areas
Casa Majahua was built with an open floor plan so guests can experience the unspoiled natural beauty surrounding the property. There are ocean views from the living room, dining room, upper decks and each casita. The construction consists of local soft and hard woods (most of which are sustainable) and artisan craftsmanship is seen in every door, window, cabinet and gate.
But natural and architectural beauty is not the only thing that sets Casa Majahua apart from other rentals. We also offer on-site personal attention during your visit. As part of your reservation, you will be greeted by our Property Manager, Alejandro or his wife, Mariana when you first arrive. They will walk you through the property and explain everything to you. Mariana will also check in every other day to ensure you have everything you need. She can help you arrange tours or provide help in other areas (i.e. shopping). Also, a cook can be arranged for $100 pesos per person per day (plus you pay for the food itself). Please indicate whether you'd like this additional service when you make your reservation.
Lastly, Casa Majahua staff are on-site every day to clean living spaces (sheets are changed every 3 days...towels more often based on guest need), water plants and clean the pool. We also have a night watchman, Don Tino, who rounds out our 24 hr security.
Casa Majahua is made up of five separate structures--a common area, two identical casitas, a guest quarters and a tower. The combined living area is just over 6000 square feet on almost a half acre of land. Please see the site plan that is shown as one of the pictures.
The first floor of the common area houses the kitchen, dining room, living room and a full bathroom. The dining room table can accommodate up to 18 people. The living room is connected to the infinity pool and has direct access to the swim-up bar, not to mention direct access to the beach and views of the ocean and Majahua Point. There are stairs in the living room to the second story as well.
The pool area includes a swim up bar, steps into the pool from the living room, a wrap-around deck, an attached hot tub and a shower as you come in from the beach.
The second story of the common area contains one enclosed bedroom/entertainment room (full futon) which is air conditioned. The rest of the second floor is an open loft area, which can accommodate overflow sleeping. Another unique feature of this level is a 'gangplank' that traverses the dining room to a deck where you can watch the sunset.
Each of the two casitas has an outdoor living room with sleeping chaise lounge (full size - can accommodate 2 people). There is an inside bedroom (king bed) on the first level with large full bath, and the second level is a loft area, which can be used for overflow sleeping (full size futon). The casitas copy the common area 'gangplank' effect, and each have a little deck to look out to the ocean. The casitas utilize palapa roofs that allow in sea breezes, therefore, no air conditioning is utilized.
The Guest Quarters contain two separate air conditioned bedrooms (queen bed) and one shared full bathroom.
The Tower is two stories. The first story contains the laundry facilities. The second story is one bedroom (queen bed) with an attached full bathroom. This room also enjoys strong ocean breezes, thus no air conditioning.

Four friends who wished for a little escape from the work-a-day life.
Shawn purchased this villa in 2008
We wanted to be on the beach away from the tourist throngs.
Being as close to unspoiled nature as you can possibly get.
We enjoyed warm days with the temperature varying just a few degrees cooler at night. It was never too hot due to the soothing sea breeze. Every morning we were greeted by the smell of fresh coffee, a lovely breakfast cooked just for us by the kitchen staff, and the gorgeous resort like surroundings of Casa Majahua. The architecture and flow of the property is truly mesmerizing.
For some of us, our waking destination was straight to the beach to see what treasures the ocean waves had deposited on the sand from the night before. For others, it was a lounge chair in the sun, a cool morning dip in the infinity pool, or a warm soak in the seaside jacuzzi. Our days were spent in true vacation style... swimming, sunning, exploring, surfing, shelling, reading, napping, kayaking, beach walking, whale watching, tai chi class, massages, sipping cocktails, snacking on guacamole and chips, playing dominoes, savoring a cold beer, enjoying the abundant wildlife, visiting the local restaurants and gazing at beautiful sunsets. Most nights, before heading to bed, we would lay back in the poolside loungers and watch for falling stars. We were never disappointed. Once in bed we would close our eyes to the sound of waves breaking on the beach lulling us to sleep and into dreams of the next day's adventures.
We are so very grateful to have had the opportunity to enjoy this very special slice of "heaven on earth". A huge thank you goes out to owner Robert Huggins for going above and beyond to insure our stay at Casa Majahua was a memorable one. We had a great time! Thank you!!
I've stayed @ other houses. But when this house is available I only stay here. As always Shawn was great to work with from the beginning. The house itself sits on its own private bay with infinity pool overlooking it. The architecture and design of this house is awesome, but it is the people who make it the best! Guille is amazing cook and she takes care of any of your requests fresh fruit delivered, fresh fish delivered,masseuses brought in.Poli maintained the grounds and pool while Guille prepared us a fresh breakfast with hot coffee as we gazed out and seen whales jumping. Alejandro the house manager checks on us. He even runs Eco group that has excursions to estuary with hiking and kayaks to a Wildlife Refuge. Thanks again Shawn I'm sure we will see you again soon!
This was our second visit to this house and our third time in Troncones/Majahua and we love it here! The place is just perfect for a relaxing week at the beach. The staff, especially, is fantastic and we can't say enough good things about them. There's construction on the point adjacent to the property, which didn't interrupt our stay at all, but we are sad to see our favorite little town has been discovered by big developers.
This property is A M A Z I N G.
Too bad we could only stay 3 nights. Next time it will be at least 6.
Thank you Shawn for making this possible for us.
We went to this property as a large group. There were 16 of us, four families in total. Grandparents to grandchildren. This was an exceptional vacation. The property was beautiful and the accommodations were fantastic. We had children from 7 years old to 16 years old and there was something for all of them to do. The staff were wonderful. They made breakfast for us every morning and we used the cooking service for 3 dinners. The coconut shrimp were awesome! The property manager was very helpful when planning our trip and was there to greet us when we arrived. He was able to set us up with a couple of excursions and checked in with us through out our holiday. The location was great and we were able to get around quite easily. The entire family had a fantastic holiday.
We were fortunate enough to get a 5 night stay and sneak between two larger bookings. Staff are excellent and take fantastic care of you! Gille cooked us the most amazing breakfasts each morning - we were so excited to wake up and wonder what we were going to get to enjoy. Pauly takes excellent care of you as well if you need anything, he is there. Don the night watch guard was pleasant and made you feel comfortable sleeping next to the ocean.
The grounds were impeccable, the pool and hot tub were both amazing and the private beach and view are outstanding. We can't say enough about this place. If you have a big group it would be perfect as everything you need is available there. We didn't leave the grounds for 5 days!
We highly recommend this place and if we are ever in the area again, it will be the first place we contact.
Casa Majahua was booked off this website unseen for our wedding venue. It was better than billed. A beautiful social place with a small private beach and oceanfront pool. Far enough from Manzanillo bay (quaint and small itself) that you see no one unless you want to and close enough to walk there for dinner and dancing. The staff was great to our friends that stayed there and we actually had a local come out for the water after diving and sell us fresh lobster. Sunsets included in the price of rental. Troncones/Majahua area is ridiculously safe and even more beautiful, any travel anxiety will be laughable when you arrive.
Our wedding and dinner were on the beach and the DJ played from the balcony. 54/54 guests said it was the best wedding/party ever. Shawn was so helpful in helping us understand the people and area and reassuring us we were making the right calls for our wedding and guests. Ask him anything...
Troncones is a 5 KM beach including portions of straight white sand and some rocky points and coves. Surfing a large draw to this area, but the area also enjoys good fishing and wonderful bird and wildlife watching. The Sierra Madre de Occidental Mountain range can be seen about 100 KM to the East.
Other Activities: kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing
