1 Br 1 Bath Casita with Total Privacy And Perfect Accommodations
About Trish Philbrook
I am a retired accountant who would like to spend as much time as possible exploring new and exciting destinations.
Trish Philbrook purchased this House in 1996
Why Trish Philbrook chose Troncones
Troncones spoke to my heart the minute I set foot on the beach. I grew up in Monterey, Calilfornia and always dreamed of owning a house on the beach. My dream was realized when we were able to purchase two lots among the first group of foreign buyers. We teamed up with Enrique Zozaya, a world-renowned architect who built many of the spectacular homes along Troncones Beach over the years, to build Punta el Corral for the 2000 millennium celebration.
What makes this House unique
It is the only property specifically suited for just two people. Most of the properties for rent on Troncones Beach will accommodate 5-10 people, but what if it is just the two of you?? Not as much to choose from. And then there is that 270 degree unobstructed view from the second story living area. I can literally sit upstairs swinging in the air chair for hours watching the flora and fauna--and people watching is rather fun as well!

Awesome Place~Comfortable Bed, Great Kitchen, Very Safe
Great Location, Very clean, good AC, grounds are beautiful and housekeeping was great. It sits right on the beach and a short walk to the point if you surf it's a mushy but fun wave. (best on west swells) Kitchen is fully stoked, King bed (only ac) was super comfortable. I would return, short walk to some restaurants on the Manzanillo Bay. ~ Reid
Perfect retreat for a couple, can't say enough nice things. Trish was very helpful throughout the booking process, answered all of our questions in a timely manner and even checked in with us during our stay. The location, layout and amenities left us wanting for nothing and we had a magical visit. We are very much looking forward to returning next year!
I am very grateful for your wonderful comments and even happier that your visit was magical. We try to make everyone’s time the best it can be and look forward to your next visit!
awesome delightful spot
as billed - serene pleasant private spot - perfect for a couple - when I needed to grill in the dark, there were of course headlights/ flashlights available. It's well thought out and well run and Troncones is a treat. The seafood and the mariscos soup at Brisas restaurant in nearby Majahua is the real deal - not prissy but the best. Fish tacos at Cafe Pacifico very nice too - and mostly we just cooked at the lovely casa. Thanks!
Already planning a return trip
We were thrilled with our stay at Punta el Corral where we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. We enjoyed relaxing on the upper floor soaking in the spectacular ocean view and cooling off in the shaded open air under the palapa roof. The kitchenette was perfectly equipped to meet our needs and the furniture throughout the home was comfortable. The downstairs had ample storage for our belongings, a wonderful bathroom with generously sized shower stall and nice quality linens. We caught up on much-needed sleep in the king sized bed and enjoyed knowing air conditioning was an option if the heat became too intense.
The house is delightfully private with easy access to the beach and loads of tide pools. Sunrise & Sunset from the house or along the beach were without question a highlight of our time in Troncones.
Restaurants were available within short walking distance and basic provisions were available in the small town of Troncones, a 30-minute walk or short cab/bike ride away. I recommend bringing pesos to cover all your nonlodging expenses to avoid relying on the one ATM in Troncones.
Both Trish (owner) and Tina (property manager) have wonderful reputations around town and friendly locals became even more friendly when they learned where we were staying. The garden and house are maintained by skilled and thoughtful people (I am embarrassed I am forgetting their names) who made us feel welcome as they completed their work around the property. The two kitties that live in the yard are absolutely wonderful.
Photos of the home on VRBO accurately capture the structural elements of the home. I would recommend overlaying the gentle sound of waves against the shore, a fresh breeze, pelicans flying past, whales offshore and consistent bright sunny days to the photos for a more complete story.
We loved our time in Troncones and would be thrilled to stay at Punta el Corral again.
This place is the best!
We could not have had better acommadations. Nothing but sound of ocean, cool breeze from top deck, stunning sunsets, walking the beach, and clean as a whistle. Also, for a couple of yogi's, plenty of practice options. If you forgot something you can probably find a surplus in a cabinet. Will definitely be back!
We can't say enough about this great rental. The house met all our needs. We have rented other houses and always expect some "hiccups". This was truly not the case with this house. For example: We packed our binoculars but forgot our bird book no worry there were three at the house, We always pack a few spices no worry the kitchen was complete with all we needed, We always pack pillows but the pillows and linen were perfect. The bath towels we so nice that Terry bought the same brand on our return. The bed was very comfortable with sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. The upstairs presented us a outstanding view of ocean. We saw whales and dolphins every day. Tina, the onsite manager was helpful and provided information we needed. The housekeeper was very efficient even putting our groceries away when we returned from shopping in Troncones. We will return again.
Thank you John & Terry! So glad to know we enjoy the same things when we travel. I am very happy that you found everything to your liking and standards. We look forward to your return visit!
Punta el Corral is located on 'the point' of the 3-mile long stretch of Troncones Beach. It overlooks a challenging surf point where you can observe or participate depending on your abilities. There are wonderful tide pools that can be explored all day, but are especially delightful for floating in while enjoying a sunset cocktail. Bird watching and whale watching are favorite past times. And just around the corner from the tide pools lies Manzanilla Bay--a wonderful and safe beach for swimming or body surfing.
