Overview

Photos and Description of this Troncones holiday apartment

Ocean view one-bedroom apartment, right on a quiet, sandy, residential beach

A beautiful breezy upstairs flat with panoramic ocean views, the Casa Oasis penthouse is the whole second floor — a timeless beachfront refuge from your busy life. This is a paradise of privacy and relaxation, and a great value in Mexico beach front vacation rentals.

Built in 2010, this elegant yet comfortable 1100-square-foot private apartment offers one roomy bedroom with beachfront balcony, a large, comfortable indoor-outdoor living area, 1.5 baths, and a full kitchen—all right on the ocean. Enjoy stunning beach views from every room (even the shower).

THE SPECIFICS:

• Right on the beach: There’s nothing between the flat and the ocean. Stunning views dominate and there’s always a sea breeze.

• Large beachfront living and dining area with tropical wood furniture and an L-shaped ocean view sofa

• Full kitchen with ample counter space and large attached pantry (stocked with quality cookware, utensils, and plates, etc.)

• Large, bright and airy bedroom with ocean front balcony, a king size bed and a twin day bed, as well as two full closets and an ensuite bath.

• Roomy ensuite bath with double sinks and separate toilet and shower. Half bath in living area.

• Separate beach access through lush tropical gardens

• Plunge pool, beachfront sunbathing patio and barbecue grill

• Free wifi internet available for checking email and browsing the web, but **our connection speeds are not suitable for streaming shows and movies.** Bring DVD’s!

ENJOY BEACH LIVING AT ITS BEST

Located at the tranquil end of a pristine, crowd-free beach, the sound of the waves and the songs of tropical birds will be your only soundtrack. There's a great swimming beach right out front (except when waves occasionally get huge.)

Check out the surf, enjoy the sunset or watch whales and dolphins frolic from the comfort of your sofa. Cook up a storm in your fully equipped kitchen (fruit/veggie, fish, & beer trucks pass by almost daily). 

Our private, gated property contains lush tropical gardens full of palms, banana and flowering trees and aromatic plants. There is a shared plunge pool and a charcoal grill for barbecuing.

NEED ROOM FOR MORE GUESTS?

We are proud to announce our new garden casita behind the main house — the Tree House loft, which has a spacious living area, large bath, hideaway kitchenette, and a crow’s nest bedroom with amazing mountain, jungle, ocean and tree-top views. Perfect for additional friends or family who want to tag along. Ask us about it.

Staff: Our housekeeper Matilde and gardener/handyman Leopoldo, and on-site manager, Franca will take good care of you. (We get Sundays and Wednesdays off.)

ABOUT TRONCONES ACTIVITIES

Troncones is famous for its year round surf, but that’s not all there is to do. Enjoy all kinds of activities on our three-mile stretch of nearly empty beach. Spend the day splashing around and/or boogie boarding on the great swimming beach right out front. Take long walks, runs, or horseback rides on our crowd-free beach. Or just relax in the hammock, read, and recharge your batteries. 

There's an advanced beach break within view, and many other great surf breaks are just a short drive away, including La Saladita, aka “the wave machine” (a great spot for beginners and long boarders). 

A nearby resort offers daily yoga, meditation, and chi gong classes (as well as gourmet food). Local surf schools and ecotour companies provide additional entertainment and exercise, just to make you happy. Surfboards, stand-up paddle boards, and bikes can all be rented nearby. 

ABOUT TRONCONES TOWN

Troncones is all about the beach — great surf, warm, clean ocean waters, plentiful wildlife, inexpensive fresh seafood (caught right out front) and a balmy, sunny climate. But we’re also known for our friendly people and relaxing lifestyle. 

Downtown Troncones (about a mile away) offers many restaurants—ranging from inexpensive beachfront palapa seafood cooked on wood burning stoves, to gourmet fare. You can also wander north to enjoy various delicious hotel restaurants and live music events. The pueblo has several general stores, and a handful of boutiques.

Nearby Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo serve up a ton of more urban entertainment—shopping, nightclubs, movie theatres, amusement parks, and even miniature golf and two full golf courses. 

WELCOME TO A TRUE BEACH PARADISE

Casa oasis welcomes you to your best beach vacation ever! You may never again have such a gorgeous, private and peaceful beach experience…unless you come back, of course. Please contact us to reserve, or if you have any questions. 

Hasta pronto!

About Franca

We love travelling, books, gardening, music, animals, surfing, and of course the beach. This beach. This house is a long-time dream come true. We built it with love and an eye towards comfort. Renting the upstairs when family aren't visiting helps us keep the dream going.

ALLERGY ALERT: There are friendly cats (and iguanas and geckos and frogs) on the premises, but not generally upstairs. The bedroom closes completely to keep any critters out. We look forward to meeting you and hosting your Troncones stay.

Franca purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Franca chose Guerrero

We built Casa Oasis because we fell in love with Troncones. Yes, it sounds a bit corny, but wait til you see the place and meet the people. You'll understand what we mean.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. We found the perfect balance on this spot. At the quiet end of Troncones' residential sandy beach, Casa Oasis offers a ton of privacy and the best sandy swimming beach*, perfect for boogie boarding (and surfing, if you're good — the break is too shallow for beginners.) And yet, since we're only about a mile from the village, we're far closer to shops and restaurants than the many rentals further North.

* Occasionally (usually in deep summer), the waves get huge and can take the sand away, uncovering rocks on the ocean's edge in places.

Fantastic, better than we imagined.

  • 5 of 5

Impossible to say enough about how great this place is. The closeness of the ocean, the waves at night, the impeccable design and comfort, the sweetness of the people who take care of it, the beautiful lighting, the space and airiness...it's double, triple what we had hoped for. The owner is wonderful to deal with. Any information you could need is posted around the place, never a question of what to do, where to go, how to get there, whom to call. Rave recommendation.

My wife and I just spent seven of the best days possible at Casa Oasis. We had planned this trip for several months to celebrate our anniversary. The picture on the website depicting the couch and table with chairs overlooking the ocean, providing an incredible view was the deciding factor. We wanted somewhere to unplug and just relax. We stayed in the upper unit, but the other two look wonderful as well. Franca, the owner, continued to answer our many questions re. the house and the town of Troncones. She set us with Ivan, who was so friendly and helpful, to pick us up at the airport. He stopped at the Commercial so we could stock up on groceries and beverages. The staff was equally friendly and helpful. Matilide, Juan and Luiz were accommodating the entire week. We rented bikes for a full week from Mike at the surf shop. The bikes were very helpful in getting around the small area of town. It was the perfect vacation. The house was set-up to enjoy every facet of a get away. I brought a speaker to play music, and I never turned it on. The sound of the thundering waves was all we needed for our background. Thank You Franca for a beautiful house and surrounding to celebrate a memorable anniversary. We will be back.

Beautiful private casa in Troncones

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and clean with amazing view of the ocean. My husband and I stayed there by ourselves but this would be a great fit for a family as well. Also there is the "tree house" behind the main house that would be perfect for a second family or friends. Franca the owner was very helpful throughout our stay. She lives in the lower portion of the main house which has a separate entrance of course. She was right there if we needed anything and also helped us call taxis for transportation. Highly recommended place to stay.

Secluded beachfront oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 nights at Casa Oasis in Feb. 2015. We chose Troncones due to the fact that it was non touristy and a quiet village, we weren't disappointed. Franca arranged for a car to meet us at the airport and take us to the grocery store in Zihuatenejo on our way to the Casa which was incredibly helpful. Casa Oasis itself is on the beach at the edge of "town". The apartment is beautiful. The outdoor couches and dining table are very comfortable. We spent countless hours lounging on the couches. The kitchen is adjacent and also open air which was perfect. There are fans on the deck that are very sufficient to stay comfortable. The kitchen had the necessary equipment to cook most of our meals. (We only ate out 5 times during our 10 night stay. We were just so happy and comfortable to hang out on the deck!) The bedroom and bed are very comfortable. The bathroom and shower are very nice. The grounds are well maintained and private. The maid provided good service. The pool is very small, as advertised, and very close to Franca's quarters, but was refreshing. We were far enough away from town, 10 - 15 minute walk, that essentially we were alone on the beach watching the sunset every night. From the apartment you can walk to Manzanillo Bay in about 30 minutes. While staying at Casa Oasis you are literally on the beach, so the sound of the surf is always there. Franca also arranged for onsite massages for us one day at the apartment. On another note, we did not have a car and never felt the need for one. Everything is within walking distance and if you want to venture out cabs are available. We would definitely recommend to family and friends to stay at Casa Oasis if they want a quiet beach getaway.

Epica! Amazingly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly Perfect! Amazed by everything that catches your eye and senses, the roaring ocean, the pristine beach, the design of the house and garden, everything leaves you sighing "Perfect". The whole living space is open so that as you dine and recline on comfortable couches and cook in the Kitchen, you are still on the beach but shaded and cooled under an open high ceiling, tiled roof. There is large bedroom with a huge bed that is screened and gazes through a hammock to the beach and the sea. And there are 1 and half baths with a shower with great pressure and water as hot as you want it.

The owner who built and designed the house has a keen sense of simple elegance so that every detail causes a sigh. This is perfection but not of the fussy sort. It is blended into the beauty of the place. The unit is so well sited that you don't see any human structures and feel built right into the sea, sky and the sand. Franca is an excellent host that understands the meaning of privacy and respect. She is available when needed but almost invisible so that you really feel that the Casa es su casa.

The little town of Troncones is friendly with good restaurants. A fish truck and a fruit and vegetable truck stop by every day so we cooked in allot and rarely left, it was that comfortable and engaging. We saw Whales spouting and fining close enough to be visible from our perch The small excursions that we did take took us to places of incredible natural beauty and daily Mexican life in small seaside hamlets. We ate three good meals, two at the Jardin de Eden, one at La Mexicana. Maybe next time we will go out more but I kinda doubt it, time just melts at the Casa Oasis. We are definitely going back, in fact, I can see no reason to go anywhere else to be at the beach.

Incredible Girls Week At Casa Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We are so grateful we found Casa Oasis. The whole property is so beautifully designed and well maintained. We had 3 girls in the main apartment and 3 in the tree house. There was plenty of space, and the accommodations are bright, clean, and airy. The view and sound of crashing waves every day was mesmerizing.

I cannot say enough about Franca and her staff. Franca is such a lovely person! She was so helpful and full of suggestions that enhanced to our fabulous girls getaway.

Thank you Franca for sharing your beautiful home with us!

About Troncones: If you are willing to make a drive to escape the crowds, you will be rewarded when you reach this magical place.. When we shared the beach, it was with one or two people who were seeking the same peaceful, quiet vacation away from tourist traps

Activities abound in and around Troncones. Whether you’re on a girlfriend getaway, romantic getaway, honeymooon, surf safari or a family beach vacation, you’ll find tons to do here.

GET ON THE BEACH!

Our three-mile stretch of nearly empty white sand beach is a paradise for surfing, body surfing, boogie boarding, stand up paddle boarding, etc. Take surf lessons on Troncones beach and/or tackle one of the many nearby surf breaks, including Saladita, a.k.a. “The Wave Machine” (a great spot for beginners and long boarders) and The Ranch.

Majahua, our nearby fishing village offers boat rentals for surfing or fishing. Sport fishing excursions are also available. Surfboards and stand up paddle boards can be rented in Troncones and Majahua.

Plenty of fun to be had out of the water, as well. Go horseback riding or running on our crowd-free beach. Play beach volleyball or frisbee ’til the whales come home. Or, ride a bike into town for an ice cream, or into the countryside for some fresh mangoes (if they’re in season).

Many Troncones vacation rentals loan out bikes. Or, you can rent a bike or a scooter in town.

GREEN VACATION PARADISE

Your perfect eco vacationTroncones is a tiny town surrounded by nature. With very little developed land, an unpaved main road, and few buildings over two stories tall, this place is all about Nature. Apart from the pristine beach, Troncones boasts lush tropical forests, mangrove sanctuaries, rivers, and lagoons.

Watch iguanas sunbathe on palm trees from local restaurants, help release baby sea turtles at sunset, see and hear hundreds of species of tropical birds—all from your hammock. Or, get out and about and see even more — with activities like hiking, spelunking, bird-watching, and lagoon and river kayaking.

Costa Nativa, our local ecotour company, provide daily excursions complete with waterfalls, lagoons, rivers, caves and splendid bird and animal life.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DOING NOTHING

Or if you’d rather just chill out and recharge your batteries, perhaps you need to lay on the beach and work on your tan, while sipping a cold beer? And when you get too hot, make a splash in the clean, clear Pacific ocean. If you’re after the ultimate relaxing beach vacation, don’t forget about quality hammock time under swaying palm trees, tide pool exploration, and long sunset walks.

Troncones also offers daily yoga, meditation, and chi gong classes?all with a stunning ocean view.

DAYTRIPS TO THE 'BIG CITY'

Nearby Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo serve up a cornucopia of more urban entertainments -- shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, movie theatres, amusement parks, dolphinariums, etc. -- even miniature golf, Magic World adventure park, and “Flintstones Land” for the kiddies. In Zihuatanejo, you can participate in activities such as paintball, parasailing, jet skis and more.

*ATMs and Hospital are only 15 minutes away, by car in the city.

Notes:
You will probably never again have such a beautiful, pristine beach nearly all to yourself. Walk alone safely on the beach at all hours. Stargaze on the beach under a staggering display of stars. See why they call it the Milky Way. See sea turtles come up to lay their eggs. Experience the bioluminescence light up the waves. Soak in the gorgeous beach during a full moon. Birdwatch like mad, from your sofa. See whales and dolphins frolicking. Catch a wave right out front. Boogie board your heart out in front of the house. It's all possible right here at Casa Oasis, on our magical, quiet corner of Troncones beach. It is truly a special, very private spot, just far enough from downtown to be secluded, but still close enough to walk to restaurants, etc. if you have additional guests, we now offer our downstairs two bedroom beachfront flat (HomeAway #4156574), as well as our back garden Treehouse loft 2 bedroom (VRBO #654195) with a stunning crow's nest loft bedroom. Ask!
