Casa Las Piedras is a uniquely designed luxury villa, run as a boutique Bed and Breakfast inn. The entire house can be rented by day or by week. Please contact us by e-mail for rental information and availability.
Upon your arrival Anai and Jorge, our innkeepers, will greet you with a drink and fresh guacamole and chips.
At Casa Las Piedras you will relax in a hammock or around the Infinity pool, take a walk along the beach or enjoy a massage from our on-site massage therapist. Sleep to the sound of the surf. Awake to a sumptuous daily breakfast. Practice yoga under our outdoor pergola. Order a specially prepared dinner of varied regional fare.
Our modern hacienda overlooks the Pacific Ocean, and is surrounded by lush gardens and tropical fruit trees. The villa is open throughout. Handcrafted designs and fine art balanced with modern touches create a soothing ambiance. The house and gardens have many nooks where one can find a private place for relaxation. You will be fascinated with the architecture. Everything you see was made on the property.
We are located on Playa Troncones: a 5-mile long sandy beach interspersed with rock formations and tidepools. The beach is a popular spot for surfing, as well as horseback riding, swimming, and birdwatching. Manzanillo Bay is within easy walking distance. Anai and Jorge can arrange surfing instructions as well as board rentals. Other activities include: Mountain biking, Deep-sea fishing and boat charters. Abundant birds and whale watching (in season).

The owners of Casa las Piedras, Richard and Effy Weisfield, discovered paradise in Playa Troncones, Mexico and decided to build this luxury villa to share with special guests. We return year after year with our family to enjoy the beach, renewing ourselves and the Casa we are now proud to share with you.
Effy Weisfield purchased this villa in 2004
We hired Enrique Zozaya, the pre-eminent architect from nearby Ixtapa, to design Casa las Piedras. Zozaya is known for his exquisite use of local materials in the luxury villas, guest houses, and hotels he has built across the Mexican Riviera.
The open design of the common areas creates a sense of intimacy with the natural environment. Rising from the center of the sitting area are double tree trunks supporting the tall, vaulted ceiling. A floating circular staircase leads to the Tango Suite. The sound of the surf and ocean breezes fill the air.
The living and dining areas front the pool, pergola, and gardens, providing many spots for privacy and relaxation. A platform to relax, read, enjoy yoga practice and evening sunsets overlooks the ocean. A path from the pool leads down to the beach.

The Casa is a warm and friendly B&B on the Pacific in what used to be a small fishing village. Now Troncones is mainly a destination for surfers and people like us looking for a quiet restful vacation where the sun always shines, birds are all around, and whales pass by, slapping their tails. The Casa has 3 rooms and an upstairs suite, all with views of the Pacific and the volcanic rocks populated by pelicans, egrets, herons, willets, and a myriad of shore birds. To either side of the piedras, almost deserted sandy beaches stretch for miles. The Casa is managed by Anai Pino who lives on site with her family. She makes a delicious Mexican breakfast every morning. There is a beautiful infinity pool that helps me wake up in the morning after I have been lulled asleep by the surf. A beautiful garden is between the house and the beach. There is a pergola just inside the garden where one can relax and enjoy the buntings, hummingbirds, stripe-headed sparrows and other visitors while enjoying the views of the ocean. The warm owners, Effy and Richard Weisfield, are sometimes there and Effy and my wife went for yoga at Present Moment, a 20 minute walk along the beach. The surfers travel north a few miles to get to what I have been told is some of the best surfing in the world. There are a surprising number of excellent restaurants in the tiny village but no bank, no cash machine, no movie theatre. If you are looking for almost perfect weather, quiet, and natural beauty, Troncones is the place to go and the Casa is the place to stay.
This is a beautiful little inn right on the water in a very quiet part of Troncones. The grounds are immaculate, as is the house. The colors and Mexican throughout are very attractive. Our intention was to stay one night, however, we couldn't leave and we were lucky enough to have a 2nd night available. Pure bliss! In the morning a delicious breakfast is served. One morning we had crepes, along with fresh fruit, granola and yogurt. And the next we had huevos rancheros, as well as fruit, granola and yogurt. This is the perfect place to relax. We will definitely return.
My husband's family is spread around the world, and we chose Casa las Piedras as a meeting point. It proved to be an excellent choice. We were three families with children from 1-15 years of age + the childrens grandparents. The house gave us privacy and tranquility with the comforts of an hotel. Everyone could do what they liked, without any pushy "activity leaders" or sales people. We enjoyed swimming in the pool, exploring rockpools or walking the beach, playing boardgames, reading, just "hanging out", watching fireflies and sunsets from the "yoga deck" or movies in the Tango suite, playing computergames/ checking the web. The internet was a little slow and unreliable at times, and we had no mobile phone coverage, but in my opinion it just added to the relaxation.
It was nice to have breakfast served every day without having to go to a restaurant, and at a time of our choice. Anai is an excellent cook. Breakfasts were delicious! They included freshly squeezed juice, fresh fruit, yoghurt, homemade granola (yummy!!) and a different hot dish every day.
The house was also a perfect size for us; One room per adult couple. The kids slept comfortably on the lofts + one baby in a cot in the Tango suite. I was afraid it was going to be too hot in the house, but the fans and the ocean breeze kept the temperature down at most times. Although it was rainy season, there were hardly any mosquitos and the weather was good; Only an occational afternoon shower or a thunderstorm at night.
Both the owner and the staff were always helpful and polite from the first contact and throughout the stay. The estate was beautiful, even more so than the pictures on the web, and was kept immaculately clean.
Since breakfasts were so substantial, we usually just went out for lunch in a restaurant "downtown" Troncones and then had a light evening snack in the house. We especially liked Siete Mares (Try the Mariscada) and Costa Brava (Great margaritas and lobster). The food in both restaurants is delicious and inexpensive.
One night, we indulged ourselves with dinner in the restaurant of Present Moment Resort and Spa, which is only a 20 minute walk down the beach. It is a little more expensive, but the ambiance, service and food made it totally worth it. On our request, they put a table on the beach for us. The sunset was incredible, and the seared tuna is the best I've ever had.
I highly recommend Casa las Piedras if you want a truly relaxing vacation.
If you want to renew yourself spiritually, DO come here; take long walks on miles of pristine beach with nothing for company but seabirds and ancient rock formations. Practice yoga by the sea in complete privacy, just you, sky and sand. Relax and rejuvenate in the tranquil lush gardens of a beautifully constructed beach home filled with charming comforts, local crafts and designed for living by the sea. Listen to the roar of the surf as it lulls you into a restful night's sleep, and wake to the sounds of egrets and herons fishing in the early morning, their forms appearing as graceful sculptures on the jagged rocks. This is a true paradise for beach lovers, and you'll leave fulfilled and refreshed!
I have stayed at CLP several times over the years, always in the high season, between November and April. To my way of thinking, Troncones is just a wonderful place, and CLP is truly exceptional, even in a place with many exceptional properties, most of which I have stayed in or visited. CLP's stunning architecture, lush landscaping, and sweet hospitality will envelop you and make you feel so taken care of and comfortable you'll be on cloud nine. CLP manages to be very luxurious without being too precious, and this is not easy to achieve. CLP is a very natural and---yes, as eye-rolling as it sounds---earth-friendly experience---no A/C, no glass windows, for example. To me, this is true luxury, not faux luxury, but if you prefer high rises, room service, and watching Regis and Kathy Lee in bed with automatic climate control, best look elsewhere. CLP is all about indoor/outdoor...LOVING---with the constant sound of the surf coming ashore just steps away, always in view, and framed by the amazing garden and pool built into the home as one sculpture. To me, it is simply a masterpiece of delight. And if you are like me, you will want to make CLP a habit once you experience it. Just please don't book it up when I want to come! ;-) Cheers!
