Coastal Mexico Family Reunions

Families enjoy a reunion on the beach in Troncones Mexico
Mexican beach rentals are so much more than a vacation getaway. When you invite the whole family to join in, you can create lasting memories as vivid as a Mexican sunset.

These days, travel costs and busy schedules tend to prevent families from getting together as often as they’d like. Young twenty-something professionals often move off to big cities to build their careers, and vacation time for them is at a premium. Newly married couples might have more than enough on their plates to make it home for every holiday out of the year. And as families get larger and more spread out, finding a time when everyone can get together is virtually impossible.

But there’s something almost magical about a Mexico vacation villa. In a phenomenon that’s fairly common in these parts, you’ll find that a reservation at your own private villa on the beach will bring together your loved ones faster than you can say family reunion.

Looking Beyond a Traditional Zihuatanejo Resort

Mexico vacation rentals work well for a family reunion because of their accessibility and variety. Offering a central location that family members can access from virtually any airport in the world, a Mexico-based getaway means that everyone can create a travel itinerary that works best for them.

Mexico is also one of those places that appeals to all types of personalities and ages. Whether you host a large, catered dinner every night or plan a low-key beachfront gathering where everyone does their own thing, you never have to worry about everyone finding something to do. From surfing and fishing to yoga and nights out on the town, life here is as active as you want it to be.

A location like a Troncones resort is also ideal because it is just a step away from the larger cities. Zihuatanejo is known as a great tourist destination, full of history and beach activities. Ixtapa, also located nearby, offers a more active party lifestyle, ideal for the young vacationers in your family. And Troncones itself has a wide array of eco-tours, water activities, and a small, beach town atmosphere few people can resist. Because transportation to and from these locations is easy, you can host your family reunion in Troncones and still allow everyone to have the vacation of their dreams.

Finding Accommodations for a Large Party

Destination family reunions work best when you can find accommodations that fit the entire family. Having everyone nearby not only makes it easier to plan activities, but you can ensure that everyone is safe and having a good time. That’s why you need a Mexico beachfront rental that’s flexible and designed for large parties. Here at Casa de la Sirena, we specialize in an array of villa types. Choose from:

  • Private Villas: Featuring three king suites with a private pool and full kitchen
  • Two-Story Bungalows: Featuring a queen suite and kitchenette
  • Mini Villas: Featuring a king suite and kitchenette

Casa de la Sirena can accommodate up to 75 guests at parties and about 20 guests at a time in the villas/bungalows when reservations are made well in advance. Off-season times are ideal for these kinds of family retreats because it is easier to reserve a block of villas and rooms to keep everyone together.

Troncones vacation rentals take a family reunion and boost it to the next level. Whether you want to bring your adult children and their families together for a weekend away, or if you’re planning a larger event to reconnect with cousins and extended relatives all over the world, Mexico is the answer you’ve been looking for. No one can resist the sun, surf, and sand — and being near family makes the picture perfect.

SEA (and SEE)  TURTLES EVERYWHERE!

The 2010-2011 turtle hatching  season has  been the best one anyone can remember.   The continued conservation and awareness on our beach is something that we are all proud of.  These magnificent creatures have a difficult journey to adulthood and our beach is making a difference!  Our guests have been delighted for months with seeing baby hatchlings racing for ocean.

OF FAIRS….AND FAIR QUEENS!

The 2nd annual Troncones Fair (yes…think small county fair where everyone knows everyone!)  is scheduled February 18th – 28th.    It is just SO MUCH FUN! It is becoming yet another reason that February is always the most popular month for guests to vacation in our village.  Most of our local restaurants all have food booths….so the food is amazing.  There are families everywhere, rides, dances, rodeos, bands……the fun is non stop!  And, where there is a fair, there must be a Fair Queen!  The competition is heating up with contestants.   Last night we went to 2 kermes (fundraising events) for 2 different contestants.  Again, we had had SO MUCH FUN!    Local ladies cooking , dancing, families out and about supporting their favorite candidate.   One of our guests that was with us commented “if there is another Troncones, I think it’s called heaven”!

THE COMPOUND

“MAN!  This place has never looked better!” With our wonderful staff, we have re-design gardens, updated decorating touches & painting projects and are just so proud to remain the premier beachfront accommodation in our area.  The private villa (private pool) was designed for beachfront luxury.   The bungalows and beachfront mini villas were designed for guest privacy.  They have been described as renting a private villa….for 2 people! We even offer en-suite (or poolside) cook service…for even 2 people! Our return guests say that once they get away from a hotel environment, it would be impossible for them to go back!   Their options here abound…..cook in?  Invite the cook to cook in?  Go out for dinner? Or be able to have beer in your own refrigerator, make coffee in the mornings without having to see anything or anybody but the open and perhaps whales and pelicans.

STAFF

Our little family is doing  well!  Humberto and Maria  continue to welcome faces that have visited us since the beginning.  WE ALL JUST LOVE THAT! During high season we of course  have Veronica and Victoria to  help out.  And, last summer Jose joined us and is a huge help to Humberto.  Maria’s youngest daughter is getting married this month and the excitement is mounting!

Just ask Linda about her foot…), beauty pageants, clowns, juggling……..I am telling you we have it all! My favorite event is the “Taste of Troncones” held once a week.

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.

PHOTO CONTEST

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 troncopik@yahoo.com.  We need to have them no later than Monday, February 1stPLEASE HELP US MAKE THIS HUGE CONTRIBUTION TO THE VILLAGE!

NEW CLINIC

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

Casa de la Sirena- Mexico beach house rentalNow 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

Sunset on the beachThe  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.

SURFING

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!

BECKY’S MERMAID

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 Swellmagnet.com.
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!

Following is a link of an actual wedding at Casa de la Sirena (Troncones): Beach Wedding in Mexico.

With the storm  (Hurricane Rick) near our shores, I am sure that the surfing is unbelievable.  We are fortunate to have breaks that offer year round waves, (good ol’ Mexican surfing) but what can compete with this kind of action!  Check out the surfing video on our website, www.casadelasirena.net or www.houseofthemermaid.com.

We have special pricing available on the private villa for Thanksgiving week and a couple of weeks in January…..run for the border to a Barefoot Beachfront Mexican Vacation!  Email us for details.
