Premier beachfront vacation rentals in Troncones  (Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa) Mexico

The surf is up and it is almost time for our rains to begin!  They are magical for us here in Troncones, transforming our mountain jungle into carpets of green  lush velvet.  They visit us mostly at night….about the only thing better than sleeping to the sounds of the surf is adding the music of raindrops on the roofs of the compound’s villas and suites.   Maybe you will be  lucky enough to catch a daytime rain storm….. walk the beach in the warm rain or sit under a palapa sipping that first cup of coffee in the morning.  Pure magic!

Our beach caters to surfers,  family reunions and weddings this time of the year.  Troncones is a world class surf destination and Casa de la Sirena is a family paradise during the summer months!   June is one of our busiest months for weddings as tradition meets romance in the tropics.    Please visit for beautiful photos, ideas and thoughts on the perfect oceanfront compound for your special celebration.


Beach wedding in Mexico HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

The Sirena compound is the absolute perfect destination for the holidays.  Whether just the  2 of you or the whole family, the compound was designed with great spaces to meet as groups, and just as importantly, lots of privacy has been built in for your private retreat.  Every accommodation has its’  own  oceanfront  private balcony or patio.  In most of the bedrooms suites,  you can actually sip coffee in bed in the mornings and watch whales making their way down the coast. Step out on to the beach, and watch for new hatchling turtles making their run to the ocean.  A special time steeped in love  in a country rich with tradition.  Join us this year for a holiday you will treasure forever.  Whether it be Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter,  your happiest vacation memories will be created with us!


Friends, fun and laughter is what a get-away to the Sirena compound is all about!  Whether you meet new friends or bring 18  (or so) buddies with you, there is no better vacation get-away.    You design your vacation and we’ll supply the tools.  Rent a car?  Or we can have a driver meet you at the airport.  Grocery shop on the way to the compound?  Or we’ll arrange to have it all done and put away when you arrive.  Have the cook make you an arrival dinner?  Or enjoy one of our great local beach restaurants?  In the mood to cook in?  You’ll  have an oceanfront  kitchen and gas BBQ.  Kick back under a private beach palapa with a glass of wine…..or dance the night away in our little village?   Your vacation…..your way. In a very private, beachfront barefoot elegant compound.

Mexico….the latest scoop is all in the articles.  Troncones is just north of the resorts of Zihuatanejo (Yes, as in the Shawshank Redemption) and Ixtapa.   The airport code is ZIH.

Troncones is a warm and  friendly village with a population of about 500.   Americans,  Canadians and Europeans join the locals in  the population and during our high season (mid November – May 1st)  our village is host to 300 or so vacation visitors, a huge percentage of which return year after year.    On warm, moonlit nights we see endangered sea turtles laying their eggs in Troncones sand, flocks of pelicans fish our waters and the dolphins and whales swim.


Casa de la Sirena is perfectly situated within easy walking distance of the village and all of the beach restaurants, events and happenings.

You do not even need a rental car when you stay with us!    It’s the perfect location with so many choices easily accessible, yet opposite the commercial end of the beach.     Activities right outside your oceanfront balcony or patio include birding, surfing,  swimming ,horseback riding,  fishing, eco tours, beach walks,  kayak tours, cave or tidal pool explorations, running, yoga, meeting new friends…..endless possibilities!  And, en suite spa services are always a treat.



The staff is doing great!  For all of our regulars,  here’s a quick update.    Maria, Veronica and Victorina still  always have warm happy faces and keep the accommodations spotless.  Humberto and Jose keep busy with the gardens and oceanfront maintenance.  Humberto, sadly and unexpectantly, lost his father last month.   Thank all of you that sent him wishes.  If you know him, you know how much it meant to him.


We  continue our passion with the compound, our staff and our village.  We look forward to seeing all of our old friends upon their return this year, and meeting new ones!
