“A real treasure”
Reviewed 1 March 2011

The pictures do not do Casa Las Piedras justice! What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy life. We had a party of 8 staying here. The food was superb, and the house a dream! It was so quiet, except for the sounds of the Ocean. We would return to this spot in a heart beat.

Although this might seem a little late for a review, considering we were there last February, it's also being written in anticipation of our return!

We spent 3 nights at Casa Las Piedras last year and will be spending 7 nights this year...arriving in 4 weeks, to be exact.

Anais, the house manager, is a true gem. She is an excellent cook and breakfasts were a treat. Fresh juice, fresh fruit, yogurt and an entree which changed daily - crepes, chilaquiles, eggs. We mentioned to Anais that we really liked a local cucumber drink that we had while in Zihua - she surprised us the next morning and had it prepared for us! You just don't get that kind of service and personal attention anywhere!!

We stayed in the Tango suite. It was well appointed and very comfortable. The bathroom is to die for!!

The sitting area by the pool is a great place to kick back and relax. There's a covered deck/yoga platform at the edge of the property, just along the beach. It is the spot to watch the sunset - we were fortunate to see a couple of whales pass by one evening.

Casa Las Piedras is an easy walk to Playa Manzanillo which has the most swimmable water in the area. There are great restaurants near by: Cenaduria Rufi's (a must go on Wednesdays!), Costa Brava, Cafe del Sol, Marta's (in Majahua). Anais can also prepare a dinner at the house for an extra fee.

Troncones is a special place....Casa Las Piedras will make your stay memorable.

A stay at Casa Las Piedras feels like being at a friend's beach house...very casual, warm, and relaxing. Every morning, the friendly staff prepares breakfast, cleans your room, and then disappears to their living quarters on the property.....available should you need them, but out of sight for your privacy. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the infinity pool faces the ocean, as do all four of the guest rooms. This is the quintessential oceanfront vacation at an exceptional value. If you're in need of pampering, this may not be the be the property for you, nor is Troncones the right beach for that kind of traveler. But for the seasoned traveler looking for a laid back and unpretentious getaway, you're not likely to be disappointed.

We really got Lucky with this Live Auction Item. We were not sure what we had actually bid on until we arrived. After getting over the concerns about safety in Mexico (this place is very safe) we made our way to this small fishing village north of Ixtapa. The size of the house was perfect for four couples, (we all love to spend time together anyway). The house and location may not be perfect for everyone, but it was for us. Beautiful surroundings, very unique architecture, and the ocean just out our back door. We had the whole place to ourselves and felt like we could stay for weeks. But the best part was...Anai, and her family (caretakers). They treated us so well, and were so kind, we felt like Family by the time we left. ( I will always have a warm place in my heart for them) We hope to return next year, and possibly for years to come.

Unfortunately there are many of us who have gotten the word out on how wonderful Casa Las Piedras is. So now we have to compete with all of you for availability! Can't say anything that hasn't already been said. The location is perfect---nice walk to Manzanillo Bay to the north and to Troncones proper to the south. Walk the road or walk the beach. Anai and Jorge are the best. The breakfasts are awesome. Pay them to make you dinner one night. It is really fun to eat in gourmet. No restaurant has a better setting than CLP. The "Tango Suite" upstaris is our personal favorite room in all of Troncones---and we have seen most of the hundreds of them. If you can swing it, go for that room and you will always thank us! If not, get the second largest largest room, which is on the ground floor. It is really nice too. The remaining two small rooms on the ground floor are much more modest than the two larger ones just mentioned, which would surely lessen the experience for us, but the house is still great and all the amazing common areas are shared. On this point, it is important to realize that you are most likely sharing the house with other people, so if complete solitude is your paramount concern, then beware. This might not be for you. Sometimes we have had the whole house to ourselves, and the other times, we have thoroughly enjoyed the other guests. We have never had a bad experience sharing the house with others, but life is always a gamble when people are involved! We enjoy interacting with others who have similar tastes in their vacationing, so we have found it to be a plus. And remember that people are usually out exploring much of the time, so even when the house is sold out, it is rare for most people to be there at the same time. Having said that, the only word of caution is that it might be wise to check with the owner beforehand to see if you are going to be sharing the place with a group of surfers from the surf club, since one review complained about that, and a crew of loud surfers would definitely change the character of the place for us. Again, we have had nothing but PERFECT experiences here in our 6 or so visits, and we are returning again this month! Yay! To repeat, if you can afford the Tango Suite upstairs, you should definitely splurge. It is awesome!!!! And it gives you a very spacious place to go and rest when you want solitude, which very much helps with the 'sharing the house' issue, if that is your concern.

I must say I am reluctant to recommend Casa las Piedras; reluctant to SHARE this place with the rest of you!! We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The Casa is nicely appointed, the price quite reasonable, the communication via email smooth, the wonderful variety of breakfasts deliciously done by Anai and her staff, and finally my own stretch of body surfing paradise.

It got cold in the central mountains of Mexico. So cold that, on a whim, we decided we needed to get out of town. We had never been to Troncones, the closest beach to San Miguel de Allende.

After conversations with friends who know Troncones, and a serious web search, we found Casa Las Piedras, made a reservation and jumped in the car the next morning.

You know that feeling, when you walk in the front of an establishment and think, "Wow! Are we really staying here?" Thus it was at Casa Las Piedras. Small (one suite and three rooms), luxurious, personal. Home away from home doesn't quite capture the feeling (probably because it is so much better than 90% of actual homes).

Breakfast was excellent and different every morning of our five day stay. Although every room was occupied, we never felt crowded and could always find a quiet lounging area to read or take in the sun. The empty beach was at our doorstep.

It is difficult for me to write this, because I'd like to keep it our little secret. But our hosts in California and the staff in Troncones were so outstanding, I feel obligated.

Gracias por todo!
