Casa Dos Peces is not only a magical setting for our lovely house, but it is also a wonderfully, romantic setting. We met while building the house. Bill hired me to do the architectural and interior design and it was love at first sight! We are certain that you too will feel how special our home is.
Sylvia purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Sylvia chose
This wonderful setting on the point was the main attraction for Bill, who has been surfing most of his life, to select this spot to build his house. The waves are great, the beauty is unique, and the house was designed to host his 4 children and many grandchildren. But, as people walked down the beach, inquiries were made as to the possibility of renting it, so he decided to share it with others who would appreciate its beauty and essence.
What makes this Villa unique
The most wonderful part about the house is the feeling that you have just entered another world. The mesmerizing views of the waves, the lulling sounds of the ocean and the light breeze which sways the palms in quiet motion will immediately bring you into 'vacation mode'. Good, fresh vegetables and fruit, fresh fish and a wonderful cook and you have just completed the picture!

We had the most magical week at Casa Dos Peces! Before we even left we were thinking about our next trip. The house was lovely and perfect for our family. Our kids couldn’t get enough of the pool and the beach. The staff, and especially Neri, are wonderful. I’m still dreaming of Neri’s Chile relleno. As parents of small children , it’s really a treat to see them relish in the freedom of the beach, the ocean, a new adventures in Troncones. It was magic to spend a week together enjoying the rhythm of sun, surf, and sand. Sylvia and Bill and lovely hosts and I’d recommend Dos Peces in a heart beat.
It was so great to meet you all.
Thank you for your thoughts. We are so happy we can add you to the wonderful family of Casa Dos Peces!
Please come back any time!
Sylvia and Bill
Chillin' at its best!
We spent a week at Casa Dos Peces in mid April 2019 and were more than elated with the wonderful opportunity to do so. We were a group of 14, 8 adults and 6 grandchildren, ages 13 to 1, celebrating a 50th anniversary. This home has up to 6 private suites and is built and decorated in the highest of standards. Its location is spectacular with a wonderful view of the ocean and easy access to the flat beach to the right about 100 yd. Owners Sylvia and Bill have done it right!
There’s also a much longer beach to the left, a walk of maybe a quarter mile. The central area and kitchen provide lots of places to cozy up with a book or sit and have great conversation. The pool is quite unusual in that it is a very shallow at one end for the little kids then gradually drops down to standing level for adults and older children with a deep end of about 8’. There is a private small sandy beach area with chaise lounges for you and access through the gate to the long flat beach right. Surfers use the waves out front and the diving pelicans are spectacular. Beach is great for wading and swimming out 1-200 yds, but a bit dicey for snorkeling near the rocky edge by the house, though saw fish not seen before.
Nery, the cook and her support team of 4, do a great job of keeping a place in 1st class condition and providing great meals. The breakfast (always fresh fruits, egg dish and waffles, pancakes or French toast) come with the price of the property and Nery will cook wonderful dinners for $6.50 per person for her time and effort. You pay for food and drink, but just decide what you want enough ahead of time and she will get it for you. The house is located in Troncones which is 30 to 40 minutes drive from Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, a sleepy town with not much in the way of activities. It has several small groceries, about a dozen restaurants but all of the ones we went to are quite basic and cater mostly to the locals. Excellent food at Chenco’s, Orbe's and Roberto’s but don't expect top quality furnishings, air conditioning, etc. It's a $65 (1095 pesos) fixed fare taxi ride from the Zihuatanejo airport to the house and a $50 (800 pesos] trip back including small tip. We rented one car and ferried us to restaurants in Troncones, a 7 minute drive. A taxi for trip to Playa Linde in Ixtapa, a busy public beach with all its amenities (parasailing-cheap, wave runners, tourist shopping, etc): $50 round trip, arranged by Nery. For us the perfect blend of chillin' & fun
How very thoughtful of you to say such wonderful things about us! We try very hard to make sure you and yours have a wonderful, memorable time.
The staff is so proud of the nice things you said about them. They love our guests and they love spoiling people, so it is all bound to work out well.
Welcome to the Casa Dos Peces family!

The best family vacation ever!
Our family, 10 adults and 4 kids, (1 yr old, 3 yrs, 4 yrs, and 6 yr old), just finished a weeks stay at Casa 2 Peces. It was the best vacation ever, so we booked again in 2 years. The 6 spacious, clean bedrooms (bathrooms in each room) had very comfy beds and spectacular views from every window.
The 7th bathroom next to the pool was used all day long.
The pool was clean and refreshing. We walked a short distance to swim in Manzanillo Bay. The waves were calm enough for the little kids yet strong enough to body surf for older kids. There were 3 boogie boards at the house to use.
The grounds and gardens were taken care of and the whole place was cleaned each day.
We loved the spacious outdoor living. Comfy long couch, deck chairs and table, and a hammock. And the covered palapa kept us cool and out of the hot sun!
Nery was a fabulous cook. Cynthia and Sandra helped prepare our meals. Nery cooked us chicken enchiladas (veggie enchiladas too), shrimp, black beans, pinto beans, rice, Veracruz fish (fish we caught fishing), lobster, salads, chicken, pasta, guacamole (three times!), and ceviche! The breakfast each day was delicious. Eggs, waffles, pancakes, French toast, huevos rancheros, and lots of fruit! We felt pampered having breakfast served each morning.
We gave Nery a grocery and liquor list, and she bought all the food for us! Every other day she would ask if we needed anything else. How great to come on Saturday and have a full stocked kitchen!
Nery booked 2 masseuse to come to the house for massages. They were the best massages ever, so we booked them to come again! They set up on the yoga platform by the ocean. Peaceful to hear the waves as we got our massages.
Nery booked our fishing trip and the taxis back to the airport. She also babysat the baby so we could all go out one night!
Nery’s husband, Heron, cleaned our fish and cut down fresh coconuts for us!
We rented bikes down the beach and rode into the small but quaint town of Troncones. ATM located in one of the small grocery stores.
Great places to eat along the beach in walking distance.
Thursday and Friday nights live music and dancing at beach restaurants.
We could not think of one negative comment to leave.
We cannot wait to return!
Thank you Sylvia for your emails and answers to our many questions.
Thank you Nery for taking such good care of us! You are a fantastic cook and host!
What more can we ask other than to know that what we strive for has been sucsessful!
You have a wonderful family and we are so pleased to welcome you anytime.
Warmly, all of us at the Casa.
Spectacular, private paradise.
Casa Dos Peces is even more impressive in person than the pictures! We enjoyed a week of relaxation with amazing breakfasts and dinners prepared for us. The location on a left pointbreak in Manzanillo Bay is secluded. If you want crowds of people, this is not for you. If you enjoy peace and quiet and a beautiful clean beach in a friendly local village, this is it.
Sunset horseback rides, private in home massage, kayaking a lagoon, great surfing, and the best morning coffee with sunrise. Casa Dos Peces delivered!
How happy you make us when your vacation has been a memorable one!
That is what we strive to do, and everyday better our services.
Please come back any time!
Beautiful house in an unbeatable spot!
Great house for families! Troncones is an authentic Mexican town and very charming. The beaches were spectacular and fairly empty. The view from the house is unparalleled. Photos online don’t do it justice!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We appreciated having you and your wonderful family. We are particularly happy that you enjoyed yourselves and that our objective to make your vacation a memorable one was achieved.
We look forward to seeing you again!
Had a wonderful time with family and friends. Awesome property.
We spent a week in casa dos peces with friends and family and loved every minute. Sylvia was very helpful from the start and made things very easy for us. Her staff helped in buying groceries before our arrival so we didn´t have to carry all ourselves. They helped us with local fish providers, taxis, restaurant suggestions, etc. The house is beautiful, the rooms exceeded our expectations in every way, it has everything you need to spend a relaxing time. They have an excellent cook that will help you buy all you need and even prepare everything for you for a small fee.
We would surely come back, thank you.
Thank you! We appreciate your feelings about our house. We are happy when our guests leave our home feeling as if they have had a real vacation!
It is a pleasure for us to welcome you!
Many Blessings for you and your family and friends,
Troncones homes do not have numbered homes, that is why the homes have names. Our home os Casa Dos Peces, on Manzanillo Bay, next to Casa Punta Pelicano and the Inn at Manzanillo Bay.
We have a full staff, so you will be greeted by them upon arrival and they will help with your departure.
Nery, our house manager, will have all the information you need for WYFI and activities you may want to book.
