About Don and Christina Volkmann
After many years of traveling in Mexico, Don and Christina Volkmann followed their dreams and built Casa Maya. They hail from the Pacific Northwest where rains are abundant. Sharing this sun-drenched paradise with friends and family is truly a pleasure.
Don and Christina Volkmann purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Don and Christina Volkmann chose Troncones
We searched far and wide throughout Mexico for the perfect spot. Here it is, in Troncones, where the surfing breaks and beach are uncrowded and glorious. This location is perfect for people who enjoy being outdoors and participating in every aspect of the natural environment from fresh fruit and delicious produce, abundant fish---to colorful flowers, birds, and marine wildlife. We especially love the proximity to several surf breaks, the chance to swim every day in the bay, and of course the rich culture of Mexico and the warmth of the people who live here.
What makes this Villa unique
Each vista from Casa Maya captures the raw, natural world of the beach. From lounging on the outdoor terraces to cooking beside a wall of stars, Casa Maya allows you to be a part of every breeze and wave, rocking with whales, pelicans, hermit crabs or iguanas--- and even the hummingbirds that dart into the outdoor showers. A stroll down the beach affords tasty restaurants, ceviche and beer, and of course a swim in the bay, or boogie boarding and surfing. Whether sprawling in a lazy hammock, hiking in the tropical forests, or saving a baby turtle, Casa Maya grants a true chance for reflection and relaxation.

Amazing property with well thought out design. The pool, open air kitchen and living area right next to the beach are incredible and a rare luxury. The views of Manzanillo Bay are sublime.
Love this place...
What a great time again at Casa Maya! Everything was perfect... Adaly and Edud are the best... the house is beautiful and so functional. we can’t wait to come back again!!
Perfect for families
Absolutely amazing choices of beaches right out the door: surf break, swimming either in Manzanillo Bay or Majahua beach where there are charming palapa restaurants with yummy food, and even tide pools where the kids could experience colorful fish swimming between their toes. And the 3-level infinity pool allows for children to splash or water aerobics or floating without a care.
The staff is tremendous and can cook breakfast, snacks and meals as you like. I can say our family of kids from age 2-20 was thrilled. High chair, cribs and children’s cots as well as sofa beds allow for maximum flexibility. Darling painted chairs and tables for children. Sand and pool toys and boogie boards provided. It’s our favorite vacation ever and we’ve already booked for next year!
We absolutley loved Casa Maya! Beautifully appointed and well maintained. The staff and the amenities were impeccable.
It’s Like Having You Own Private Resort
Just a few miles up from the main street of Troncones, Casa Maya is located in a serene neighborhood right on the beach with spectacular sunsets and sprawling grounds that allow you to feel total privacy and a connectedness to the natural beauty of this very special place. Everything is decorated very tastefully from all of the common living areas to each of the individual suites with regional handicrafts, though nothing is overly fussy. Everything that we needed was there for us to prepare meals and entertain our group. When we needed special attention, Don made sure that things got taken care of quickly. Good restaurants are within walking distance as are excellent beaches. The staff are very friendly and helpful and were even willing to prepare some food for us for a few extra pesos. We have been staying here for several years and will no doubt be coming back as we find Casa Maya to be the perfect place for our Mexican getaway.
Casa Maya Paradise
Absolutely fantastic! Oceanside paradise retreat on the northern point of beautiful Manzanillo Bay. Large palm palapa to hang out during day or evenings, next to a never ending edge swimming pool fronting the ocean. At night, the casitas offer a cool respite from the tropical nights. Easy walk to beach side restaurants or a swim in tranquil Manzanillo Bay. We loved it!
I would rate this as a 10 for both accommodation and location.
Casa Maya is located just outside the town of Troncones on Manzanillo Bay, about 40 k north of Zihuatanejo. Troncones is a delightful pueblo of about 60 homes. In the sun-splashed town, you can purchase sundries, crafts, tortillas, get a massage, save a baby turtle, as well as sample tasty fish, ceviche and and tacos at lazy beachside restaurants. Available are several yoga retreats with classes and seminars, a small church, caves for hiking, bike and surf rentals, horseback riding, salsa dancing, as well as eco lagoon and hiking trips. The Troncones Point surf break is well known and 7 minutes walk along the beach from Casa Maya. There are other breaks close by (Saladita, The Ranch). The oceanfront pueblo five minutes walk to the north of Casa Maya, named Majahua, features a small fishing fleet where you can buy fish and lobster right off the boat, hire someone to take you fishing and whale-watching, ferry you to remote surf breaks, sample food in several beachside ramada restaurants or walk/run for miles north on the coast. If you like, spend a day or two in Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo playing golf, swimming with dolphins, scuba diving, visiting markets and sampling the fine dining.The most appealing thing about Casa Maya and Troncones is the warmth of the people living there.
