Guerrero Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Porvenir, in Spanish, means future. The remarkable sunset seascape vistas from Casa Porvenir celebrate the perpetual rhythms of day's end and the promise of a new dawn beyond the descending cloak of tropical darkness. Casa Porvenir is an ideal setting for basking in the glow of the present and dreaming of the promise of the future.

Casa Porvenir is a large landscaped property with an abundance of tropical trees and flowers. Your party will enjoy the privacy of Casa Porvenir. While we have two accommodations available, we rent to one group at time so you do not share the space/grounds with strangers. We accommodate our guests in the Casita Suite and in the Palapa Suite (El Nido), offering comfort, privacy and simple elegance. The Casita Suite has a fully provisioned kitchen with an ocean view and a bathroom whose shower is open to the sky – the sun in the day and the stars and moon at night. An ample bedroom sleeps 2 (king or twins) and a sleeper sofa sleeps one child. There are views of the ocean from every room and from the expansive deck (estancia) there is a breathtaking 120 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. A scan of the ocean vista from shore to horizon at any moment during the day may reveal gliding and diving sea gulls, high flying frigate birds, whales breaching, surfers riding the crests off the point, scuba-masked divers exploring underwater hideouts of lobsters and sea cucumbers, and dolphins leaping in their graceful arcs across the surface of the ocean … and, punctuating the soft brilliance of the setting sun, flocks of pelicans paint an undulating silhouette against the western sky.

The Palapa Suite (El Nido) with its classic tropical palm-thatched roof has a fully provisioned mini-kitchen, a spacious bathroom and an ample bedroom sleeping 2 adults and 2 children that opens onto a lounging deck. From the kitchen and deck the picturesque coastal range meets the eye.

For our guests Casa Porvenir is prized as a celebration of privacy, beauty, tranquility, serenity, renewal and regeneration. It has celebrated weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. Come and join the celebration of life. It is our hope that Casa Porvenir will bless our guests with rest, love, romance, creativity, healing and hope for the future.

A peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Porvenir for one week and had an absolutely incredible time. We spent the week boogie boarding, reading books and playing on the beach... and evenings watching the sunset, watching the pelicans fish and making lovely meals with fresh fish (with a cold beer in hand). La Casita was beautiful home base. We were thrilled to see a group of dolphins playing in the bay one of the days we were there. We walked over to Majahua a couple of times and enjoyed some nice meals at one of the smaller restaurants on the beach there. We can't wait to go back!

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Casa Porvenir was a great place to spend our vacation. We were 4 adults and one baby and found it very comfortable. The main house was beautiful and spacious with an amazing view of the ocean and beach. Gladys cooked us lunch and we highly recommend her as her chef skills are wonderful. Fresh ceviche and sopes after a morning on the beach was lovely! Troncones is a sleepy little town more than a walk away, but Majahua is a short walk. We had a great time and recommend the property to anyone that wants peace and relaxation!

Beautiful & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Casa Porvenir is a most beautiful & peaceful retreat from it all. This was our third stay here in 8 years. We absolutely LOVE it! The owners are amazing and so helpful. The staff are wonderful and there when/if you need them. We brought our 5 year old daughter (her 2nd stay!) and 21 month old son. They made sure that we had comfortable sleeping arrangements, going as far as obtaining a pack 'n play so we didn't have to travel with one. Our experience this visit was just as magical and special as our two previous stays. We will definitely be back!!!

Muchas Gracias!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at casa Porvenir and el nido to celebrate new years.

Luis and I stayed at casa porvenir and enjoyed the sound of the ocean, the gorgeous sunsets, it is a magical place.

The kids stayed at la casita and they love it.

We made arrangements with the staff to buy the groceries and cook for us, it was so delicious that we didnt go to any restaurant!

Gladys the cook, made everything from scratch, healthy and delicious, and every day she prepared hand made tortillas.

The rest of the staff is very atentive and the house is in very good shape.

The owners worked for months with us making the arrengements and were very kind with us.

We would love to go back for a romantic getaway or again with the kids.

It was a great experience , i highly recomend the house

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (myself, husband, son (20) and daughter (18)) just returned from Troncones and loved every minute. The house was perfect in size, function, and was beautiful. We rented both houses which worked out well with the 2 older children. The kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Because of the road work there was no wifi but it was a true blessing. We played cards every night and reconnected as a family. I could easily return to the day of no internet or cell phones. Our kids were able to find wifi at café in town when the absolutely needed it which become less and less. My favorite part of the trip was the quality time we spent together as a family and meeting the wonderful locals in Troncones. Such nice friendly people. All the restaurants that were recommended by Jolene were fantastic. We ate at 2 of them twice because they were so good. We felt safe (never locked up anything!!) and very welcomed by the local. My husband and son went fishing with Samba and caught so much fish we had to give it away. They surfed right outside of the house which was very wonderful. We had no problems with anyone getting sick even though we ate out every night. The house was kept spotless by Gladys and she had dinner waiting for us on arrival. The beach was so beautiful and the water crystal clear (and warm !!) The whole family rated this trip as one of our top family vacations. Thank you for all your hospitality, recommendations, and opening your beautiful home to our family. Highly recommended!!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned for a weeklong stay at Casa Porvenir. We had the best time there. This is our third time staying there, and we are already itching to return. The home itself is so well-kept. The space is gorgeous. And it's right up against the beach. So we could hear the ocean 24/7, which is incredibly relaxing. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, etc. All we needed to do was purchase food at the market in Zihuat on the way from the airport to Troncones. The house is well-kept by a woman who cleans the place daily and a gardener who is taking care of the beautiful gardens. We will be back.

You may choose Casa Porvenir, located on the beautiful Manzanillo Bay, simply as a place of rest and relaxation and for its natural beauty tranquility and agreeable climate. You may opt to while away the time just looking out at sea where, along the shore line, local fishermen cast nets or dive for lobsters, or, further out whales breach and dolphin glide across the surface. In the immediate vicinity of Casa Porvenir there is sunbathing, swimming, boogie boarding, deep sea fishing, hiking, bird watching, cave exploration and nooks and crannies for mediation and yoga. The shoreline directly in front of Casa Porvenir features lava rock outcroppings and tide pools ideal for the curious beachcomber. The beach is perfect for long runs or walks. The La Majahua Beach lagoon provides amazing scenes of a variety of waterfowl on one's runs or walks. Surfing conditions ideal for beginners may be found 3/4 of a mile north of Casa Porvenir beyond the village of La Majahua on the Majahua beach or, by vehicle thirty minutes to the north of Saladita or The Ranch. While suitable for beginners, these venues are sought out by surfing aficionados who track the internet for the best places to surf. Snorkeling and searching for shells is popular and a fun activity for children and adults of all ages. Weddings and festivities can be planned on the beach... a very romantic and special place. You may also want to luxuriate with a massage or a pedicure/manicure on the deck (estancia) of Casa Porvenir. There are several restaurants on the beach within easy walking distance serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may choose from a wide variety of cuisine including Mexican, Continental and American. Local fish and seafood, lobster shrimp, squid and octopus are always available though the fare may vary somewhat by the season.There are tipico restaurants (food typical of the area), also within walking distance, serving lunch and dinner in the nearby fishing village of La Majahua. There are a number of other restaurants in the nearby village of Troncones. For those with the time and inclination there are same day or overnight trips to the nearby charming colonial cities of Morelia and Patzcuaro. A trek of three and one-half hours by car or bus to the northeast of Troncones takes you to these lovely mountain valley towns with their enchanting colonial architecture, indigenous arts and crafts and cobblestone streets.

Casa Porvenir is an ideal setting for basking in the glow of the present and dreaming of the promise of the future....WE WELCOME YOU! BIENVENIDOS!
