CASA DE LA SIRENA, TRONCONES, MEXICO (Ixtapa – Zihuatanejo)
BEACHFRONT BAREFOOT VACTION RENTALS
Trip Advisor’s #1 International Travel Destination for 2010
What a season! There is so much going on in Troncones these days! This winter update will catch you up on the latest comings and goings in our village and from us at Casa de la Sirena.
Most all of you that have spend even 2 nights here in Troncones will remember Anita LaPointe, the heart and soul of our little village, and owner of Tropic of Cancer Beach Club. If you spent 3 nights here chances are she helped you with something. Anita generously touched each of us and passed away in June before one of the most important construction projects here in our little village had even begun. Our Ejido is building a Zocalo (town square) which we are all very excited about. Friends of Anita is raising funds to build the Kiosko (gazebo) in her honor. It will be the focal point of the Zocalo and the central location for village weddings, quincieras, kermes (fundraisers)…..a perfect gathering place. We need to raise almost $50,000 USD and one of our projects will be a 2011 Troncones wall calendar. Please send any photos you are willing to donate for possible use to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need to have them no later than Monday, February 1st. PLEASE HELP US MAKE THIS HUGE CONTRIBUTION TO THE VILLAGE!
This is HUGE news for us! The state is building a clinic due to open in a few months here in the village! It has 6 examining rooms and will be fully staffed. This is such wonderful news for locals as well as our guests. We also have a new farmacia in the village.
HOLIDAYS IN PARADISE
Now is the time to make reservations for the 2010 – 2011 holiday season. As all of you many time returnee guests know, usually the most popular accommodations are rented for the next year before the middle of January. We expect this year will follow last and book a little slower due to the economy, but because the economic indicators are more positive now and the attention attracted from the TripAdvisor.com designation, the beach will fill up quickly. Don’t miss the opportunity to really relax and enjoy the holidays with your friends and family in the perfect setting, the beachfront compound at Casa de la Sirena. Take the stress out of your holidays and kick back with us on the beach. We still have some availability. Come on! You know you want to! Don’t wait until it’s too late J And remember, TripAdvisor.com chose Troncones as the #1 2010 international travel destination!!!! Not vacations in Cancun, Cabo (or Cabo San Lucas) or Puerto Vallarta, or even Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo….but Troncones!
WEDDINGS/FAMILY REUNIONS/HONEYMOONS/ROMANTIC RETREATS/FRIENDS GET-A-WAY
The beachfront Sirena compound is about as good as it gets for group gatherings. We have lots of great gathering places, but each bungalow/mini villa is its’ own island offering spacious retreat and privacy. Cooks services are always an option at our compound, but because we do not have a restaurant or bar, you will not be disturbed by the masses and you won’t have a tab to settle when you leave! Perfectly located in the middle of the 3 mile stretch of Troncones Beach, but away from the “commercial” end of the beach, we are within easy walking distance of everything in the village and on the beach. The restaurants and bars are minutes away…..away being the key word!
CASA DE LA SIRENA COMPOUND Updates
We have installed 4 additional beach palapas (straw and wood style umbrellas) on the beach right in front of the Mini Villas. So, with the existing ones in front of the private villa, if all our guests use them at the same time, each room has their own! Same with our incredible comfy cushioned pool lounge chairs. The pool umbrellas have been redone in Sunbrella colors that just make the pool a happier place to be! Add an umbrella drink and you’re good for the day!
The bungalows and private villa have been updated during the past season. The cushions are a happy tropical mix of colors. The neutral bedding along with the new locally handmade decorator pillows make the suites so comfortable that partners have been known to have to beg their “other half” to come out of the rooms J And kids, forget it. They want to spend all their time indoors studying now. (BIG HA!)
We had a huge turtle year this past season. I never remember so many babies. Roberto’s Bistro was releasing sometimes 1000 at a time. Not to mention the ones hatching on the beach and making a run for it. And the whale shows this year have been phenomenal. We are so fortunate to be able to experience the wonders of this part of the world and share it with so many of our guests that appreciate these gifts.
Our staff is still performing their magic making the compound more beautiful and lush every day and our guests feel more like this is their 2nd home than ever. Humberto, Antonio, Maria, Veronica and Victoria join Mike and I in welcoming you into our home for a special retreat from your “real” world.
Something going on here. We have never had so many 1st time guests get the bug for surfing lessons and go do it and fall in love with it! 2010 must be the year of the surfer. And, the Sirena compound is a perfect home base for that….ask our friends at www.swellmagnet.com. Book now for surfing season…..a great family summer vacation!
Adios from all of us at the Casa de la Sirena compound. We would love to hear from you and so appreciate any photos you can share with us either for calendar project or our website scrapbook.
Come see us soon!
