CASA DE LA SIRENA-  Troncones (Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa) Mexico

Troncones Tweets!

Rain and surf have been our fortune (finally!) the past few months.  The village water well is finally happy, the mountains are so velvety green that when flying into Zihua it takes a 2nd glance to make sure one is not landing in Maui, and the plants have all doubled in size!   Wonderful warm storms that visit us at night marry with the sound of the surf and make for the kind of sleep that great dreams are made of!    The surf has lived up to what has made Troncones a world famous surf destination and we never tire of its’ wonder. And, the Casa de la Sirena compound continues to offer the very finest in Troncones Mexico beachfront vacation rentals.

Local Chatter

Humberto just returned from Guadalajara where he completed a week of English immersion classes.   It was a huge adventure for him!   He had never stayed in a hotel before this opportunity.   Maria is so excited because her youngest daughter is getting married in February.  I can hardly wait to take the 2 of them wedding dress shopping!   Zihuatanejo, here we come!

Rumor has it that we will have a new upscale restaurant this season so we are all anxiously awaiting its’ opening.  We are so blessed on our little beach with such wonderful food!  From the local Burro Burrrocho, Roberto’s Bistro,  Costa Bravo (and, of course, our “house” cook for our guests!)  to the Inn at Manzanillo Bay and Café Sol (U.S. culinary trained chefs)  Troncones beach has  to be the best fed  Mexican beachfront vacation destination anywhere!

Marry Me!

Speaking of weddings.  We have hosted so many fabulous weddings at the Sirena compound that we now have an official wedding site,

It is a wonderful venue for the most special occasion in anyone’s life.  We are so proud to be able to offer the perfect Mexico destination wedding venue at such affordable prices.   We have hosted several weddings that began with guests that found Casa de la Sirena as the premier Troncones beachfront vacation rental compound….and loved it so much that they decided to share the most special time of their lives with us!

Hope to see you soon!

It is officially our summer season and everything slows way down for us on the beach. It’s warmer now, so everyone walks a little slower, the dogs snooze a bit more and our local tiendas may run out of coffee creamer from time to time. There are a couple of things you can always be sure of in our little part of paradise. Cold beer, great food and the dramatic  beachfront view that the Sirena compound offers. Stay with us before October 31st and receive a 25% discount. Even if you book the whole compound! And decide to get married!

Book your January stay by November 15th and we will offer a 10% discount. It’s our way of making sure everyone still gets to vacation, therefore bringing a little sunshine to this dreary economic mess! These offers are subject to availability, for new reservations only and you must mention this special.
Whether you choose a private villa, a one bedroom mini villa or a 2 story bungalow, the beachfront Casa de la Sirena (House of the Mermaid) compound is simply luxury on the beach. Actually, your own private beach!

Destination Wedding Venue…an old mermaid recipe
What stress? Here goes:
Take 2 people in love, mix together friends and family, fold in a savvy, full service local wedding planner, pour into a spectacular beachfront compound and sprinkle with flowers, laughter and fun. And, ok. A little tequila can’t hurt. Poof….may the rest of your lives together be so happy and carefree!  You may want to make a few more decisions about the most special event of your lives together, but you don’t have to! The Sirena compound is an absolutely perfect venue and don’t let anyone talk you out of having your celebration in Troncones! The small village atmosphere is just amazing……..everyone knows everyone and so everyone will probably know why you are visiting. If you require additional lodging for friends, they can easily be accommodated right up or down the beach at neighboring properties. And, the amazing part is that we have had bride after bride tell us that a week at our compound was actually less expensive than ONE NIGHT for the ceremony and reception venue in the states! Check out the photos and video at

Private Yoga Retreat…an old limber mermaid recipe
About the same as the wedding recipe! The compound has 9 completely separate suites, so plan on 9 – 18 of
your most adventuresome students and make a run for the border! The small garden suite can be used for a teacher or private chef quarters. The outdoor platform is shaded throughout the day by beautiful indigenous trees, and the sound of the ocean is the only music your class will ever need……..a truly amazing escape! Hire a local cook,
explore our fabulous restaurants, bring entertainment in….make it your best retreat ever!

The people…
Humberto has fully recovered from his appendectomy and is busy with Antonio’s help in getting the maintenance projects completed. His warmth and attitude never cease to amaze us and no wonder every single one of our guests becomes his friend. Seriously. Maria just celebrated her 42nd birthday and we gave her the hottest red dress ever to celebrate in. After all these years cleaning at Sirena and being a huge part of our family, she “accidentally” mutters a few words in English now once in a while. Veronica is packing up the gift shop for the season and she and Jesus are doing great. Mike and I are busy bees back in our “real” world…..thankfully!

Vacation in Beachfront Barefoot Elegance!

*see below for 2011 Troncones calendar offer!

Summertime in Troncones is quickly approaching.   It is the time of year when we welcome our surfer crowd and  anxiously await photos from our many guests that choose us to spend family re-unions, yoga retreats, honeymoons and have their weddings at the compound.

Beachfront Weddings – The Sirena compound is a fabulous venue for destination weddings.  Whether you choose a simple barefoot on the beach ceremony or a full  out formal affair, Casa de la Sirena is the  perfect setting for your  family and bridal party.   Since we do not charge a facility’s fee, it is an affordable alternative to other wedding sites.  Lots of our brides have confided that for what they would have paid for the ceremony and reception facilities, they could host family and friends at the Sirena compound for a week!  Talk about off to a happy start!

Family Re-Unions are one of our favorite specialty groups.   The compound was designed for privacy even in a large group.  It has plenty of meeting and gathering places, yet everyone has their own “private island” suite/villa.    2 pools, private beach palapas, lots of lounge chairs and a swim up bar in the main pool offer fun in the sun for everyone.

Yoga Retreats ……the word is out.   What a perfect  setting for a group.  The accommodations are gorgeous and the platform is perfectly shaded by large palm trees.  And, when you consider the privacy designed into the compound, how could there be a better location??  And, though restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance, there are none onsite (although we can arrange for a cook) so there is no late night “hooting and hollering”  J

Surfing is world re-known in our area.   Options include Troncones Point, Manzanillo Point, La Salidita and The Ranch.

Holidays at Casa de la Sirena are the best!  Whether you bring all your family , opt for a romantic get-a-way  or run away with friends, Christmas in Mexico is so special , easy and stress free.  One of our favorite recipes…..  Start with some sunshine, stir in the melody of the ocean and long walks on the beach.  Add homemade guacamole and chips followed by chili rellanos or garlic shrimp.  Head up the beach for a nightcap and plan for more sunshine tomorrow.  Repeat. Maria's-Family While on Vacation

The Scoop at the Sirena Compound –   Maria, Humberto, Veronica and Antonio are all doing well.  Humberto just started working again after an emergency appendectomy on March 25th.    His smile says volumes about how he is feeling.  The guys are working on cleaning and re-grouting both pools.   They are finished with the villa’s private pool and are about a day away from finishing the big pool.  Veronica has accepted our nagging and is commuting to Zihuatanejo once a week for computer classes.  Antonio’s baby grows about 2 inches a day….hard to believe she is almost one year old.  And, Maria took her family on vacation to Acapulco!  We are so proud of her.  It is the 1st actual vacation she has ever had.  The photo is of her and her youngest 2 there….on vacation!  She thought the city was too big and noisy (imagine that if you are from Troncones)  and that the food was “funny”.  Other than that, I think she had a good time!

Calendar – YEA!  There is a beautiful full color wall calendar of beach and village life being produced right now.  We have some amazingly talented residents and guests that have shared some beautiful photographs.   All profits go to a great cause, building a gazebo in the new town zocolo (town square).    Click here to download the order form as a PDF (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).

Have a wonderful summer!  We hope to see you at the Sirena compound soon!

The beachfront compound in Troncones Guerrrero, Mexico

TripAdvisor just named our beach the #1 International destination for 2010!!!! Follow this link to see what people are saying about us on

The magic of our little village is remarkable.  Endangered sea turtles still lay their eggs in our warm sand on a moonlit night, flocks of pelicans still search the waters for fish and dolphins and whales still swim by.

The warmth of the community was at an all time high last night during the artfest at the Burro Burracho!  8 children from the ages of 9 -14 proudly shared their paintings to a packed house of family, business owners, property owners and guests.   This was a culmination of 6 months of painting lessons that the children had received as a “grant” from one of our many time returnee guest.  What a huge success!  Each piece of work was auctioned off and the monies donated back to our local school.  There was a total of $4300 we were able to donate back to the school!  Thank you Barb for facilitating this event!

The Sirena compound scored with 5 original paintings for our guests to enjoy for many years!

We have a free spaying and neutering clinic in Troncones today and tomorrow.  People are lined up with pets for this service and it is so gratifying to see!  Kudos to Dr. Jorge Islas!

We  hosted another fabulous wedding last week.   This couple chose to be married in our little church here in the village and they hired a beautiful white carriage steered by a white horse to take them to the church and back!  It was amazingly romantic!

Barefoot beachfront weddings are our usual request, but this certainly was beautiful.  With full service wedding planners, caterers and a magically romantic venue, the Casa de la Sirena beachfront compound is the exclusive beachfront destination wedding….where all your dreams come true!

Be sure to enter our contest on our website for a free weekend for 2!  Win a week in Paradise.

Remember, whether it is a private romantic get-a-way, a perfect beachfront honeymoon, a family reunion, surfing in Mexican Pacific Coast style paradise, a friends retreat or beachfront destination wedding, Casa de la Sirena is the perfect compound to make all your dreams come true!

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!

Many of you have cajoled me throughout the years (is that spelled correctly?) to get serious about a gift shop.  Well, thank you for continuing to “motivate” me….this is the year it will happen!  We are excited and have not chosen a name yet, so if you think of a good one that we can use, please send it our way.   My friend Silly suggested Sirena Gifts and Gab but that so doesn’t do it for me! 

To all of you surfers, especially those of you that love Mexico surfing, be sure to check out the video on our website.  Mike and the guys at did a great job and I want to thank them for sharing it with us…..good guys and great surfers.  They surf it all….in front of the beachfront Casa de la Sirena Vacation Rental compound, the Troncones Point, La Saladita and The Ranch.  Not bad fishermen either!

It’s fall so it is time to talk weddings (spring and summer beachfront destination weddings).  Hopefully, by the next post I will have photos of our latest wedding at our destination wedding perfect  Casa de la Sirena Mexico beachfront compound.    With a local wedding planner, you can enjoy a stress free Mexico destination wedding at Casa de la Sirena.  Choose from a simple barefoot wedding on the beach or a full out formal event complete with 5 star dining, mariachis and live music.  Casa de la Sirena is the perfect Mexico destination wedding locale and can accomodate up to 80 people for formal dining.

And, if you are reading this before November 8th, we will offer you a 20% discount if you book by November 8th, 2009,  for a week or longer in  August, September or October 2010.  Just mention MEXICO TRAVEL DISCOUNT  (BLOG)

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!
