What our guest say about our three unique Troncones beachfront vacation rentals!
Penthouse Flat beachfront one bedroom
What our guests have to say about our flagship Troncones beachfront vacation rental.
The Penthouse flat is the entire top floor of our beachfront villa with a large open-plan indoor-outdoor living and dining area and sweeping ocean and beach views from every room. Our first vacation rental, the panoramic Penthouse has been enchanting guests since 2010.
Perfect beach, perfect apartment, perfect view, perfect hostess
We literally could not think of one thing to improve our stay! Maybe a puppy ?!
The house is comfy! Location amazing! And Karina made sure we had everything we needed! We didn’t want to leave.
Beautiful private casa in Troncones
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. Highly recommended place to stay.
My time at Casa Oasis Troncones was beautiful and relaxed. The décor of the Casa represents what is best in rich-Mexican-seaside design. The amenities are incredible: Wifi, full kitchen, sparkling clean bathrooms, spacious storage, a small dipping pool, and a hammock on the patio. The grounds of Casa Oasis are gorgeous, and the surrounding area is a wonderland of vivid green trees, vines, and ferns.
To me, Casa Oasis embodies what a picturesque tropical paradise vacation conjures: While I was there, the sea breezes cooled the balmy tropical days, as the open design of the Casa’s living room and kitchen faced the ocean. The bedroom’s floor to ceiling windows and doors looked out over the beach, the sea, the sunsets, and the star-filled night skies. It would be difficult to imagine a more idyllic place to relax and rejuvenate. The beach out front was never crowded, and while taking long walks along the shore, I seldom saw more than a couple of other people. Everyone was friendly, by the way. The ocean water is warm yet refreshing, so swimming was a must. One night as a friend and I walked down the beach we came upon a huge sea turtle laying her eggs. It was magical to watch something so natural, yet so out of the ordinary from my day-to-day life. There was plenty of good fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish to buy from vendors (if your stay involves cooking for yourself in the Casa’s kitchen); and great restaurants that serve delicious food nearby, should you be feeling less-domestic (which was what I did most of the time).
I can’t say enough about how great my stay was and how perfectly situated, cared for, and accommodating Casa Oasis was—I can only give it all possible stars and assure you my experience was amazing!
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.

Epica! Amazingly Perfect
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.
Fantastic, better than we imagined.
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.
Weeks later, we’re still luxuriating in the remembrance of a place that fulfilled every promise. Attention to detail, a generous sensibility, a blissful bed with the sweetness of a daily floral surprise on it, a well-equipped kitchen,a matchless view wherever the eye falls, privacy, a lovely sense of air and space and place, immaculate housekeeping, a charming and considerate owner. What else is there to want? A swift return.
Awesome Stay at Casa Oasis!
We loved our stay at Casa Oasis – it was everything we were hoping for! Beautiful open air living room, amazing views of the ocean – it was the perfect, peaceful getaway. Our favorite things – waking up with a view of the ocean, chilling out in the balcony area and hammock, walking out to the ocean, relaxing afternoons in the backyard/zen garden…”
Safe, Authentic Mexican Beach Experience
Perfectly located on the beach within walking distance to town. Beautiful house on multiple stories with views and a plunge pool. The host connected me with a taxi driver from the airport and great info about money changing, grocery shopping, etc. We went horseback riding on the beach, stand up paddle boarding, yoga classes, and of course swimming/surfing every day.

The ideal beach getaway!
My boyfriend and I stayed a week in the one BR penthouse flat upstairs, and then when his mother arrived, we stayed a week in the two BR flat downstairs. Both were fantastic and had unique qualities to make our vacation perfect and memorable. We highly recommend Casa Oasis to anyone looking to escape the fast-faced world and throughly relax. If you do need to connect, the internet was fairly reliable and fast enough to check your email, read the paper or look up local information.
The panoramic views from the open-air living space in the upstairs 1BR apartment were out-of-this-world. When Matilde, the housekeeper, first showed us upstairs upon our arrival, we couldn’t believe we had all this space and these views to ourselves! The layout was great and we loved the kitchen. You can watch the pelicans soar by up and down the waves, horses and walkers walk by on the beach, incredible sunsets, and feel a sense of total privacy all the while. You can use the pool and patio downstairs between 11-7 every day (hours understandably curtailed to protect the privacy of the garden-floor renters). We enjoyed chatting with the women who were staying downstairs, who were mature adults there to surf.
Our second week, we moved down to the 2 BR beachfront flat, which is great for the luxury of floating in and out of the pool all day and night without having to even put on flip flops, and the back bedroom is quieter for those who prefer to listen to the birds and crickets rather than the surf. There is good privacy between the bedrooms.
The ocean swimming and boogie boarding out front are fabulous, and three boogie boards were provided by Casa Oasis, no need to rent. There were a few days out of the fourteen we were there where there was a big storm swell with 8 ft waves, and a bit of a rip tide (beware!), but most days it was easy and even kid-friendly (ages 10+). It was so refreshing and invigorating to duck some waves in the ocean and then retreat to the pool only 50′ away to relax.
We rented bikes for $50USD/week so it was really easy to get to town, the further (2k away) beaches like Majahua, or any restaurants you want to go to from Troncones to Majahua. It’s so relaxing to just pedal slowly up and down the road and enjoy the ocean breezes. Absolutely no need to rent a car unless you need to carry surf boards around. We took taxis on the days we wanted to go to Playa Los Gatas in Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa Island, which were the two fabulous days trips we took.

Slice of Paradise
Although familiar with Zihuatanejo, this was our first visit to Troncones. We fell in love with the town, its simple charm, and the long, practically secluded beach. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay at Casa Oasis. We stayed on the upper level of the unit nearer the ocean. Benito helped us from our cab up the stairs, and as we entered we were immediately taken by the open-air living/dining/kitchen area (much more expansive than the web photos show). Very clean, fully equipped kitchen with all cooking necessities; wonderful bathroom with double sinks and long roomy counter; and with the perfect mattress and distant crashing waves, we slept better than we have in years. Best amenity of all, and one we were hoping for, was the group of resident cats at Casa Oasis. Friendly, clean and always around to keep us company whether we needed a lap friend at breakfast or a cocktail buddy down by the pool. Fantastic bonus! Franca was wonderful helping us with all our pre-travel details and cab arrangements from the airport to the supermarket. Our overall feeling from this trip was total comfort, with a strong desire to come back next year to stay longer and get more familiar with the people and surroundings. We’re discovering now that we missed out on several little beach bars/restaurants we’d like to try (one can never get too many fish tacos…). We would definitely stay at Casa Oasis again.
Secluded beachfront oasis
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.

Visiting Casa Oasis
Property as scenic and accommodating as promoted, described and advertised; staff members interactive, prompt, skilled and gracious … Suggestion: Owner needs to add a shaded sitting area at beachfront …
— Gary B
Best Ever !!!
This must be our favorite place in the entire world! Its a perfect getaway, and you will be so sorry to have to get back to the real world. This was our second stay at Casa Oasis, and Franca, Karina and Alfredo make it easy to forget about everything and just live in the moment.
Private tropical retreat
Want a private tropical retreat on an empty 2km beach? How about great surf? Beach side restaurants within walking distance? That’s Casa Oasis. It’s like camping on the beach except it is an open air flat on the second floor of a house – the ‘penthouse’ – so all the usual amenities. Casa Oasis is located in Troncones which is a real Mexican village, not a tourist creation. We’ll be back

best week at the beach, ever…
Casa Oasis is a great place to relax and enjoy a beautiful, uncrowded and unspoiled beach. My wife and I were looking for a laid-back place to simply relax and enjoy ourselves for a week and that is exactly what we found at Casa Oasis. Franca and her staff made us feel right at home. Guests have the second floor to themselves with an open-air kitchen and dining/sitting area that overlook the casa’s courtyard, plunge pool and beach. The master suite features a very comfortable queen-sized bed and large bathroom with a great shower. Ceiling fans and the ocean breeze provide cooling. We flew into Zihuantanejo and were met by a car and driver which Franca was kind enough to arrange. We made a brief stop at La Comer (Comercial Mexicana- a supermarket that has everything) to get groceries and beer. Although there are several excellent restaurants in Troncones which we enjoyed most evenings, it is a good idea to have some snacks on hand and beverages in the refrigerator. Downtown Troncones is about a twenty minute walk from Casa Oasis but taxis are readily available. Despite our lack of Spanish language skills everyone was very friendly and helpful and while it would be useful to know at least some Spanish it is not necessary. Casa Oasis is a great place to vacation and we are looking forward to another visit next year.
Casa Oasis: a real paradise on the beach
We have been staying at Casa Oasis for many years. It the best place to stay in Troncones, right on the beach with a wonderful view of the sea. We appreciate the long walks on the perfect sandy beach. The apartment and surroundings are well kept and comfortable, the staff friendly. We keep coming back every year. It is the perfect getaway, so relaxing, a little paradise.
Casa Oasis is a wonderful place to stay..
Casa Oasis is a wonderful place to stay, the penthouse is spectacular, the views are even better – right off the living area onto the beach. Franca is the best host I’ve ever had, she was incredibly helpful, very quick with responses, and fun to message with.
Incredible Girls Week At Casa Oasis
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
Looking to relax in a beautiful location? This is it!
It is amazing how quickly (sadly) a week can go by when you are reveling in relaxation, beauty, great food and friendly atmosphere. It was the perfect place to destress. The Casa itself is very nicely decorated, very comfortable and has a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean. We have never stayed so close to a beach, now we are spoiled. We loved the open air living area (dining table, couch, hammock, kitchen) with a direct view of the ocean. Very calming. Yet, you can be active too – lots of walks on the beach, swimming (water temperature is perfect), running on the beach, walking into town for dinner. It was a perfect balance. Everything about this vacation was “easy” – the communication before we went, arrangements for transportation from the airport, getting drinks and groceries. Franca has a gift of setting things up for her visitors to de-stress, relax and enjoy the local surroundings. We definitely plan to go back.
Look no further for the perfect place to stay in Troncones!
My husband and I traveled to Troncones for the first time this past November. We wanted a place to really relax while there, and we TOTALLY lucked into Casa Oasis. It is a true gem, one of those special places you find when traveling and mark on your “definitely will return here” list. Franca has created a true oasis, and I felt like I was staying at a home away from home while there! Casa Oasis is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the Troncones area. You look out your bedroom to watch waves and sunsets. It is very quiet, so I slept like a baby. The open air living and kitchen area are perfect, and the decor is very tasteful. We used the fully stocked kitchen and local fish man to cook most of our meals, which gave us the chance to really relax and take it slow. Franca, Alfredo, and Karina were incredibly kind, generous, and lovely people. I’d HIGHLY recommend staying here – you will not want to stay anywhere else after doing so! We are returning as soon as we can.
I am sooooooooooooo grateful we stayed at Casa Oasis!!! :)
Franca describes Casa Oasis accurately and well. It is delightful in its beauty, simplicity, comfort, and potential. Franca is young, hip and capable of supporting you to make the most of your time there. The animals are sweet and only add to the sense of feeling at ease. Most of all, the placement of the Casa is impeccable. It is the quieter end of a quiet beach, near a rocky outcropping for exploring, with only a few like-minded beach walkers for miles. The beach is wide; all the other casa’s unobtrusive, allowing a gorgeous view; the water is warm, and shallow, allowing endless play. Ah, moving from warm air to warm water-delicious! Troncones feels suspended in time in it’s lack of development, but is at ease with tourists, as there is a long and healthy relationship between locals and ex-pats. Zihuatanejo also remains undeveloped, on a beautiful bay 30 min away, offering a classic market, and many cultural opportunities. We went snorkeling and on an ecotour with Blue Morpho, both fantastic experiences. All in all Casa Oasis offers a truly flawless setting for a rich, quiet, or playful vacation, however you want it, promising to leave you with memories you will treasure the rest of your life. We will. Thank you, thank you Franca, Karina, Alfredo, and all the four-leggeds!
Flipkey reviews 2011-2014
Screenshots of originals. We were only renting the Penthouse at that point. (We stopped listing with them between 2015 and 2018)
