“Paradise”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I was fortunate enough to spend a week at Casa Canela. Troncones still retains the character of a small, quiet, relaxing and truly lovely Mexican beach village. Absent is the noise and tasteless artificiality of most overpriced Mexican "resorts". And, even though Troncones is a small place there are many good restaurants. It is perfect for long walks on uncrowded beaches with good body surfing and some of Mexico's best surfing spots nearby. Directly across the street is Roberto's Restaurant which serves the best steaks in town and has the best evening entertainment without being loud and obnoxious. The house itself is quite lovely with a fully equipped kitchen, two en suite bedrooms with very comfortable beds with air conditioning. It has a big front porch with comfortable furniture where we had our evening drinks and hors d'oeuvres before dinner as well as coffee in the morning.
If you are lucky enough to stay here Lyn, the owner, will see to every need from laundry to drinks and she knows the best places to go for food and for exploring the surrounding area. Casa Canela is truly a bit of paradise and I am convinced staying there added years to my life.

“Magnifico”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I was down for a week it was the absolute best place to be!!! Lyn was the most perfect host you could ask for, anything you needed just ask. I visited 3 different beaches while there and hers was the best for suntanning, walking, boogie boarding, and surfing, it took 3 mins to get to the beach if you lollygagged. Roberto's Bar/Restaurant right there on the beach and the Sea Turtle Sanctuary. Lolita is the friendliest house keeper I have ever come across, always smiling. I made some new friends and I'm definitely coming back. In fact going back in February taking my husband and friends we are looking forward to it !!!!

“Far from the crowds...”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Casa Canela is in a great location in Troncones, across the road from a beautiful, wide, long beach. The casa is well equipped and Lyn and Dave are excellent hosts. Lots of restaurants within walking distance of Casa Canela - some of our favourites were Roberto's, Rufi's and Chencha Familia. We rented the casa for the month of February and enjoyed every moment of our time in Troncones. There was a hammock on the porch for afternoon siestas and it was used a lot!

“Really clean and convenient”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We only stayed for a couple of nights at Casa Canela, Lyn, the owner, received us earlier than the check-in time without any problem. The house was very clean and extremely close from the beach access, just across the street. We borrowed Lyn's bikes to explore the surroundings of Mahaua beach. I would definetly stay again at casa Canela but for a longer period of time. Lyn accepted us to bring our cat without any extra cost.
