Total Mexican experience!
This being our first experience with VRBO, we can,t tell you enough how impressed we were with our vacation. We spent 9 full days at Casa Canela, and enjoyed ourselves emencly, Our hostess Lyn was extremely accommodating and friendly, the house was clean and just as expected according to the pictures on the site. We were a two minute walk to a very beautiful and quiet beach, where we had our own loungers and umbrellas to relax in ever day. The best parts of the house were it’s private sitting areas. Which we took advantage of daily, very cool and pretty. The town of Troncones had fantastic restaurants, and the locals were friendly, helpful and fun. The best part of our trip were the daily visits to the fish truck for fresh seafood and the produce truck that came by daily with fresh vegetables and fruit. This being our first vacation outside of a resort, we had so much fun, we really feel we can,t go back to an all inclusive. Thank you Lyn for such a positive experience, it was a terrific relaxing holiday. Hope to come back soon, Courtney and Al
I very much enjoyed having all of you stay in Casa Canela. You really know how to vacation and it is so rewarding to see that in guests.
I too hope you can return.
We are always looking for ways to improve our guests' experiences. Please let us know where we lost the star and if we can, we'll improve upon it. Thank you for coming. Hope to see you soon,
I had a great time super close to the beach and everything. Lyn was terrific. I'll be back for sure
Brendan, the pleasure was all ours. Looking forward to having you back.
Very peaceful and welcoming.
This place is a small paradise. Very private and peaceful. Me, my wife, and our two sons (ages 2 and 4) stayed in the Frida room. My in-laws stayed at the Duke. It really is a fascinating place. Lyn and Dave (the owners) are very friendly. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay at in Troncones. The beach was only a two minute walk, and Casa Canela has their own beach umbrellas and chairs and cooler for water/beer; that's a big plus since the little ones needed shade every 30 minutes or so. We were able to see the turtles get released at night; my boys really enjoyed that. The rooms were as described, very comfy and relax. My wife and in-laws were surprised of how amazing the stay was. We will definitely be back next year.
Perfect in everyway!
My husband and I stayed in "The Duke" for a week in February and loved every minute of it. Casa Canela exceeded our expectations and was exactly what we were looking for during our first visit to beautiful Troncones. Our accommodations were comfortable and clean with many pleasant amenities. We enjoyed relaxing on the covered patio while admiring the well kept grounds and watching and listening to the birds. Lyn was very responsive to all of our questions prior to our arrival and during our stay. She had great recommendations for us that we would not have known about without her assistance. Her staff (Lolita and David) were amazing and did a great job to make us feel like we were at home. Casa Canela has a great location and is just steps away from the beach and within walking distance of many restaurants. We are so happy to have found this ideal spot and look forward to our next visit.
My friend Candy and I drove to Casa Canela to visit Lyn and her friend who was visiting also - so it was a
chick week. We had pedicures, massages, great dinners out at wonderful restaurants nearby, body boarding
in the surf. The property is excellent - just my type of place (very safe and clean) and Lyn is the ultimate
hostess with the mostest. Very relaxing and very comfortable - absolutely no pressure - a super get away.
Over the years I have stayed at many places at Trancones Beach, but Casa Canela is the best of all of them.!!
Thank you Lyn and David - Sincerely and I mean Sincerely - Martha Blenkhorn
Best week ever!!!!
Lovely spot! Close to the best beach, not too busy. I can hardly wait Til next time
