Casa de la Sirena, Beachfront Villas and Bungalow Vacation Rentals, Troncones, Mexico (Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo)

November 3rd, 2009

We are getting this blogging thing pretty well down!  Fun to be able to share our world south of the border.

Things are hopping at the Troncones Sirena compound as we get ready for our high season.    The beachfront private villa has new paint, bedspreads and pillows, colors, cushions…it looks brand new!  It has always been my favorite accomodation as we originally built it for our retirement home…..never guessing we would ever wind up in the vacation rental business and it would become one of the most loved and popular beachfront vacation rentals on Troncones beach!

This photo, “Becky’s Mermaid” is so special to me.  Doug and Becky Stow stayed with us last year.  Doug has been a fabulous painter for lots of years and this was Becky’s FIRST PAINTING!!!

And, she gave it to me!!!  She has inspired me and I am hoping to return to my painting lessons when we get back to the beach.
We  have been busily preparing for high season.  We are doing allot of upgrades, painting, re-upholstering and generally just making the private villa and 2 story bungalows “new” again.     It is beautiful now and will be even more so by the 1st of November when it is complete.
GARDEN TIME!  Yes, we are hoping for a great garden this year to accompany our chives, basil, chilis, mangoes, papayas and limons.   We have planted tomatos, squash, warm weather spinach, rosemary and red bell peppers hoping that our love of gardening and attention to the plants surpasses the challenge of the salt air that comes with being right on the ocean.  If anyone has any tips, we would love it if you would share!
We are grateful that the hurricane by passed us and Jessica and Jarrod’s sunset beachfront wedding and celebration was perfect!   Destination weddings in Mexico need not be expensive or difficult.  Just let us help!
Our “cast of regular” Mexican surfer dudes were back for their annual trip (actually, back twice) and made a great Mexico Troncones surfing video available for view on our website.  Thank you to Mike and the guys at
We still  have a cancellation for the private villa  over Thanksgiving week.  Make us an offer!  If you have never visited us before, this is a perfect opportunity for a romantic get-a-way or a last minute family escape.  We’ll leave the lights on!

Mika and I are at our boat for the weekend in the California Delta  hoping that Hurricane Rick turns west.  We have a compound full of guests and there is to be a beachfront wedding this evening with a celebration reception following.  I will post the pictures as soon as they share them!

Humberto ans the staff are working to make our guests’ Mexican Beachfront Vacation (Destination Wedding)the best they could ever imagine.  Ana cooked a welcome dinner of chili rellanos for about 20…light duty for her!  Luis’ margaritas were their normal huge hit and the party began!

Beach vacation in Mexico now has a new face!

WE ARE SO EXCITED to announce our completion of our new website design!  Please visit for updated photos and our new look.  We would love your feedback regarding anything else that you would like to see on the site.

Our “cast of regulars” will be sad to hear that 2 of Troncones’ most beloved residents passed away this summer.  Dwayne, who always had a smile and could be found every Sunday holding court over the BBQ at Eden left us in May.  Anita, the official Godmother of everyone in the village (natives, Ex Pats, visitors….literally everyone!) passed away in June.  She was and will always be a Troncones icon and the village will have a huge empty spot where both of these great people once lived.  It takes  special kind of people to “make a village” and both of these friends certainly fit the bill.
