Casa chulada

New luxury hacienda style home and apartment on Playa Troncones

Welcome to Casa Chulada, a luxury home recently completed in the quiet village of Troncones, Mexico. As some of you know, chulada is a word sometimes used to describe people, places and things which means “exceptionally or exceeding beautiful” -- often luxuriously and deliciously so. We chose the name as it describes the feeling we have when we are here – in the house, the gardens, the pool, on the beach and in the surrounding communities – and the feeling that we hope you will experience.

Chulada offers beachfront living with the ambiance of a beautifully furnished and decorated real home -- a place for comfortable living with healing energy. Our home away from home can be your base to relax, play and enjoy yourself from which you can venture out as you wish -- locally or for example to Morelia, Patzcuaro, San Jose de Cobre . . . .

Troncones offers the quiet beauty of a beach village with soft sand, surf, great places to eat and lots of activities including swimming, walking, hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and kayaking. We have yoga, qigong and massage nearby (or in house if you prefer). We have great little shops for gorgeous gifts. In the nearby town of Majahua you can relax under a ramada and eat seafood, drink beer and sleep in hammocks. Or in Buena Vista, also close by, you can eat delicious tacos or traditional pozole. Further away (though only 20 minutes by car), in the towns of Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa, you can shop, bank, eat, hire a fishing boat or enjoy the nightlife.

Casa Chulada is located on the newly paved beach road between the hills to the east and the ocean on the west.

The house has 3 bedrooms – a master with king bed, two other generously sized rooms each with queen beds and their own bath (the blue bedroom bath is also available for use from the living and dining rooms). A highlight of the home is the beautiful large and fully equipped chefs’ kitchen with a Viking 6 burner/gas range with grill and huge island and breakfast bar.

There’s a 2 bedroom apartment above the garage -- one bedroom with queen bed and one with 2 twins (can be made king size if needed). There’s a kitchen, bath and dining - living room (which can be converted for sleeping if needed).

There are 2 outdoor living spaces between the house and the beach including a dining area and kitchen with a BBQ grill and a pizza oven. On the other side there’s a shade structure that can be used for lounging, dancing, yoga or . . . .

Chulada's marvelous pool (40’ x 18’) which has a stepped entry and a uniform depth of about 5’, is on the beach side of the property between the kitchen and the shade structure. We keep the pool relatively chlorine free -- cleaning frequently and treating the water with a copper and silver ion system that allows us to use the least amount of chlorine possible for cleanliness and safety. There’s an outdoor shower and pool bath nearby.

Walk down through the beach gate to the ocean where you will find sand beach (more or less depending on the season) and tide pools directly in front. You can relax in the tide pools and fish (the pelicans do!). Good swimming and surfing can be found within a very short walking distance - about a hundred meters south down the beach. There’s other fine surfing close by - at the point at Manzanillo Bay, La Boca or Saladita - and further out.

When you arrive, you will be greeted and introduced to the property by our property manager, Mariana Salas and/or Eduardo (Lalo). They will help you get settled and comfortable and check on you during and at the end of your stay. Jasmine, our housekeeper, who works days (except Sunday) will also be available to help you get acquainted and comfortable. Ismael, our gardener and maintenance man, will keep you supplied with water, show you the outdoor grill and oven and possibly be able to bring you some fresh lobsters or other seafood to cook.

You can get the whole house and the apartment for a group of 10 with option for additional sleeping if required. Or, if you have a smaller group, you may be able to get the house or the apartment separately.

So come and enjoy with your family and friends. Stay for a week or a month.

Casa Chulada is ideal for special occasions, events, weddings or family reunions. We recently hosted a benefit for the Whales of Guerrero project which was attended by more than 70 people! Or just come on your own. Relax and enjoy a quiet or active getaway near a small town on the beach in the best house on the beach.

About Teri Jackson and Sid Sattler

Teri and I are 'beach babies' ... Before we were born and after, our families spent time on the weekends and summers at the beach ...Teri on the west coast and Sid on the east coast. In our travels, we often found ourselves drawn to beach locations and when the opportunity came up to buy beach property we luckily were able to do so. We visited and dreamed about the land for 15 years before we decided to build. Teri's art and design background was instrumental in the plan and design of the house and with collaboration from Sid (who also is a builder and artist/designer) and from our truly amazing, energetic and skilled local builders, we were able to realize our dream of a home away from home.

Teri Jackson and Sid Sattler purchased this house in 2014

Why Teri Jackson and Sid Sattler chose Guerrero

We chose to build Chulada from the ground up because nothing existed in this place that approached what we really wanted -- an intelligently designed place where family and friends, young and older, could come to relax and enjoy each other, enjoy the beach, watch the most amazing sunsets, catch sights of seabirds and butterflies, dolphins and whales and listen to the crickets and waves as we fall asleep.

What makes this house unique

Chulada is a bare foot house....the moment you step inside, you can take your shoes off and never have to put them back on until you leave. Water is purified though we advise using bottled water for drinking and cooking. The pool is the cleanest and most chorine free we've ever experienced. The gardens are amazing with plants and palms and fruit trees all around. And we've tried to make the house as eco-friendly as we could while giving ourselves and others all the options of comfortable living.

Amazing vacation: pleasant house, fantastic garden, super beach

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation (3 generations).

The House is in very good condition, has one master bed room and 2 smaller ones but with ensuite bedrooms in the main house; and additional apartment w 2 bedrooms in secluded, above garage location.

The whole property is extremely well maintained and the garden, pool, outside dinning area with access to the beach a dream. Sid and Terry, the owners, were extremely welcoming and helpful.

The house manager, which lives in town, was also very helpful; not only with dealings regrading the house, but also for example organizing a fishing trip, etc..

Zih is easily reachable by car within 30 min. The clean new airport (ZIH) is not much further away.

We had 2 staff in the house, taking care of the kitchen, and house plus a super friendly and helpful gardener.

In summary, I can highly recommend this house for a great family vacation.

There are few restaurants close by, as well as a sweet coffee shop, a small market and a very small pharmacy.

We have rented many houses over the past years, in the US and in Mexico; I would recommend this property without reservation.

This turned out to be very memorable vacation and everybody was happy.

I rented this villa for my friends during my wedding week in Troncones and they were head-over-heels in love! I got to visit a couple times during the week and the vibe was so relaxed and happy. It is even more beautiful than the photos and it really was the perfect house. My friends couldn't have been more happy or felt more taken care of in this lovely villa. Thank you!

perfect home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family of four in Casa Chulada for over a week and it was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. The home is beautiful as is the location. The house is far enough away from town to feel quiet but close enough that you could walk if you wanted to. The pool is spectacular. We spent every day swimming and relaxing in the pool and hammock and every evening eating ice cream on the beach. The town of Troncones is very sweet. It's big enough not to get bored but small enough to see familiar faces. The staff is wonderful. They are there when you need them but gone when you don't. Absolutely ideal. The woman that cleans the house is also a fabulous cook. We have two small kids and when we didn't want to go out for dinner she would make amazing meals. If you want a relaxing vacation in a gorgeous house this is the place to go. Thank you.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Chulada for a week while we were in Mexico for a wedding. The pictures on this website do not do it justice! We could not believe how beautiful this amazing house was. The feeling of comfort you have walking into this house as the ocean air blows though did not stop for our entire trip. The property manager filled our refrigerators and pantry to our specific requests allowing us to truly relax the entire trip. Cooking on the restaurant style stove and dining with the sun going down underneath the beautifully styled pergola was an experience no 5 star restaurant could match. Jasmine kept the house spotless everyday while we enjoyed the sun, making us feel like we were at a all inclusive resort without the stress of dealing with a crowded club. For the 8 family members and I, this house gave us the space when we needed it and the home like feel when we gathered to enjoy each others company. Every bedroom could be considered the Master suite which always helps solve any debates on sleeping arrangements. The guest house is perfect for the early sleepers to break away as the rest of the party continues throughout the night. I really appreciate everything Teri did to set us up for this amazing vacation for my family and I. I still get calls from my family asking when can we all go back or remarking on little things Jasmine and Lalo did to accommodate us and make it truly a one of a kind trip. We had a lot of family staying at a number of different houses along the beach in Troncones, and they all remarked on how jealous they were of our groups house. Nobody will take as good of care of you as Teri and her staff, and if you want that unforgettable vacation, look no further
