I’m Nicole Mungar, Owner of Tropical Cocoon Furnishings, a full service solution to furnishing your vacation home or investment property in Mexico.
I’m a licensed Realtor outside of Toronto, Ontario and 6 years ago, our family started spending Christmas vacations at a beach front home south of Playa Del Carmen. This beach house became one of many homes that TC provided furnishings for since the business was launched 3 years ago. As a Mom with three kids, I fell in love with the more relaxed, friendlier, family-focused lifestyle of this country.
Opening a business in Mexico was never part of my plan and it all happened somewhat by accident. I originally considered working as a Realtor in Mexico, but having networked with area developers, I soon realized that Canadian and American owners had a much greater need for furniture. My years of staging homes finally paid off. With my real estate background, I understood how attractive, quality furniture, that is appropriate to the style of a home, will help sell, or rent, a Mexican vacation property quickly and for top dollar.
I’ve developed relationships with dependable manufacturers who utilize the highest production standards. The majority of the furniture that TC sells is sourced within the country, supporting Mexican artisans and the Mexican economy. This includes our Contemporary, Rustic, and Hacienda Collections (the Caribbean line is the only exception). I strive to work with the best of the best. Our copper pieces, for example, are far superior to anything else on the market. Our hand painted furniture is simply exceptional.
We have also assisted with custom designed furniture, facilitating the process from the initial sketches, selection of finishes and fabrics, to the final delivery of the finished product. Additionally, we offer a home essentials package for residences in the Cancun area (I’m hoping to expand this service, eventually, to cover all my clients). This package supplies everything that a new home owner or renter will need to move right in and enjoy their vacation—dishes, pots and pans, bed linens, towels, etc.
Our services benefit owners, investors, property managers, Realtors, developers and interior designers. Many clients hire TC to furnish their homes in order to have their properties on the rental market ASAP. Whether it’s a new property, or an older one that needs refreshing—TC saves time, money, and provides the ultimate in convenience for our clients. They can avoid flying down to go furniture shopping, they don’t need to speak Spanish, and they are saved the frustration of visiting store, after store, to locate the right furnishings for an entire home.
Shop online and within a short time your vacation home in Mexico has been completely furnished. You don’t even need to be present for the furniture shipment. TC has worked on numerous occasions with a client’s representative, such as a property manager, to accept the furniture on their behalf. You’ll receive a fully functional home, ready for yourself, your friends and family, or your rental tenants, without ever having to leave your computer keyboard. Now, that’s turn-key!
