Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Troncones - Casa Firefly/Luciernaga

House, bungalows, gorgeous pool & shaded yoga platform on the beach fits 7!

THE TWO BUNGALOWS ARE THE ONLY ROOMS AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 18, 2014 UNTIL MAY 1, 2015. The beach is just steps away and the most awesome pool in Troncones even closer. Amazing ocean/beachfront views from the outdoor kitchen, dining area, living room, downstairs bedroom, upstairs 'palapa' dining room, upstairs master bedroom and bungalows.

The property has 5 bdrs (six beds) and 5 bathrooms. The main house contains 3 bdrs and bathrooms and is two stories. It is available for rent May 1-Nov 18th. 2 individual bungalows, available for rent year round, are close to the main house and each includes a queen bed, bathroom, outside shared living and dining area and small kitchen. Each bungalow has its own private patio.

The upstairs master bdr has a king bed and it's own balcony and is near another bdr with 2 singles for kids or 1 king for adults. Downstairs is another bdr with queen bed and ocean view. The upstairs 'palapa' room (underneath the palapa roof), has a glorious ocean/beach/sunset view - it is spectacular. Enjoy ocean and garden views as you ascend the winding, outside staircase to access the palapa room, it's round table and comfortable sofa.

Do you love to cook? You will not find a more beautiful kitchen anywhere. You're view is spectacular. This is heaven for foodies! Guadelupe, our onsite housekeeper will even shop and cook meals for you if you like! Let us know if you'd like our special bed and breakfast rate!

The shallow part of the 50-foot-long lap section of the pool is steps away from the house, and the lap area gradually slopes deeper into a seven meter diameter, 8 foot depth deep end, with a large 'wet deck' in 2-3 inches of water for relaxing while staying cool and enjoying your favorite beverage...

You can surf, bodysurf, and boogie board, right in front of our property because we are on the clearest stretch of rock free beach; rinse off in the beachfront outdoor shower, and dip in the pool.

We have 3 glorious hammocks for hanging around in. 1 is a double for sharing lazy moments with your honey!

Troncones is a charming small town (pop. 500), 'downtown' being just over a kilometer (2/3 mile) away by beach stroll or dirt road, with restaurants, small stores, and some shopping just minutes away.

Present Moment retreat is a 5 minute walk down the beach for yoga, qigong and dance classes daily as well as evening entertainment and great food and atmosphere.

Ixtapa resort (20 minutes away by car) or Zihuatanejo (35 minutes away), a lovely port city (sportfishing, diving/snorkeling, shopping, restaurants) of about 60,000. You can hire a 'panga' to go fishing from Majahua, a quaint Mexican village 10-15 minutes away by car or beachfront road 'combi' (bus). You will love it here!! This (vrbo)site has the most current information on rates.

Refund policy: 1/2 due for deposit, the rest 60 days before arrival, full refund minus a 10% fee if cancelled more than 60 days ahead, 25% min. fee if less than 60 but we will only refund what we are able to re-book for your time, minus the 25% fee; we recommend traveler insurance.

About Leela Francis and Greg Hillyer

We are Leela and Greg from WA. We've been spending our winters in Troncones for 10 years. Greg built a house on the beach south of Troncones and couldn't get enough of this area so after he sold that we decided we had to come back. We love the pristine beauty of this place and the incredible peace and calm not to mention all the other water sports and other activities available. We are avid cyclists and yoga enthusiasts.

Leela Francis and Greg Hillyer purchased this villa in 2013

Why Leela Francis and Greg Hillyer chose Troncones

Troncones has just the right mix of gorgeous deserted beach feel and the sierra madres within view, while offering easy access to authentic mexican restaurants, mellow evening entertainment, good people, good coffee, yoga classes, massage and a gournet meal if you want to splurge.

What makes this villa unique

The charm of Casa Firefly is apparent as soon as you arrive. Original design, outdoor kitchen and living room, spectacular views and stunning landscape make this not only an amazing rental house, but also give it a great home feel.

The lap pool that opens up to a round pool is simply glorious. The beach outfront is free from rocks so it's safe to swim. Hammocks are ready for you to laze in under an enramada for shade. Outdoor grill for delicious fresh locally caught seafood.

From December to May each year, you can also choose to come to Casa Firefly for a personally designed 1 or 2 week cleansing retreat with Leela, Detox Coach, Yoga Teacher and Embodiment/Aging Radiantly Mentor.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 out of 5
My family had a very good time staying at Casa Firefly. We stayed in one of the bungalows. Leela and Greg were great hosts, making our stay very comfortable. The property was very clean and beautiful, the photos are very accurate. My 5 year old son had an amazing time swimming in the pool, and so did we. The ocean was steps away, and the beach was clean and perfect for swimming and surfing. The village of Troncones was so much fun, with all of the ammenities that you would need within walking distance. We all had a blast and would recommend this property. We would love to go back some day.

My wife and I stayed in a bungalow for a week. It was an excellent trip to traditional old Mexico away from the tourist resorts, but still had plenty of locals to assist with our poor Spanish speaking skills, and local restaurants offering good food. The beach was fabulous, safe, and had remarkably few people. Sunset horseback riders and good size waves created an iconic image of the place for me. We look forward to going back.

Paradise Found

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week and had a fabulous time. Everything about this place was great.
It is a beautiful, private, clean and well cared for home and property with a deluxe pool in front of one of the best areas for boogie boarding and body surfing on Troncones Beach. The beach is very safe, you can walk for miles and no one will bother you, even in the wee hours of the morning.

We stayed in a bungalow which was very comfortable and you are steps from the pool and
the beach. There is a full time (English speaking) caretaker family on the property who are very friendly and helpful.

If Leela and Greg are there, even better, as they know everyone and everything
about the area and are happy to help you connect with all types of local resources for
surfing, biking, and snorkeling. They can also tell you which restaurant to go
to each night to get the best sampling of food and entertainment.

We are already planning our next trip there, where we will rent the entire
property, (2 bungalows and the fabulous open air main house), for a larger
group vacation.

Thanks Leela and Greg for being such incredible hosts!

Awesome.

  • 5 out of 5
This house is beautiful, so comfortable and the location is amazing. We felt like kings and queens living in a castle! This is probably the best swimming/boarding spot on the whole beach... Just steps outside the back door. The pool, kitchen, yard are all big and beautiful. The staff who came to clean and care for the lawn were amazing. We would rent it again for sure.

Paradise in Mexico

We stayed in one of the bungelows and it was very comfortable! The shared kitchenette is more than sufficient with fridge, blender, ice provided for you in small freezer, bottled jug water also provided. Stop at the Bodega ( Mexican super walmart) on your way in from the airport in Zihua to pick up food! A fish and

Pictures don't do it justice! Best tortilla soup ever!

Pictures don't do it justice! Best tortilla soup ever!
  • 5 out of 5
This villa was so much more beautiful than we expected! The price is fantastic for what you get. Marisela cooked Mole, Enchiladas and the best tortilla soup I've had in my life. We went with 12 friends to celebrate my fiancee's graduation from pharmacy school. Everything was perfect. The pool, the beach. Very private. There are many authentic restaurants with amazing food within walking distance. Everyone is so friendly. This is not the place to go if you are looking for a touristy experience. This is REAL Mexico where the food is so much better and the beaches are deserted and beautiful but you will see chickens wandering your restaurant. There are virtually no bugs! The weather was perfect. The ocean is a little rough so don't plan on snorkeling around here and it's much better suited for seasoned surfers than beginners. We LOVED the villas although beware that the bathroom is part of the villa (only a partial wall separates) so that means you hear everything. I would do it all again any day though. AMAZING place! I recommend going to Zihua and doing the cooking school at Patio Mexico if you're a foodie.
