Guestbook comments from the owner
We found Villa Santa Barbara to be a luxurious Mexican Oasis on a quaint canal waterfront setting. My husband and I came to Barra for a restful fun getaway & we found it here! Barb & Barry are fun, easy going gracious hosts. Every suite is private. One of the best features is the crystal clean pool & patio area. We can envision coming here again & sharing this great place with our family.

Thanks Barb & Barry!

"We were the first guests to stay in the Penthouse suite - it was perfect! There was lots of room inside and out. Barry & Barb were fabulous hosts - anything we needed, they found it for us. We had a "fiesta" with them and the other guests one night... lots of fun!

Beautiful scenery, an easy walk to Barra, a lovely pool, great weather and accommodation not to mention the awesome company... what more could we ask?

Thanks, Barb & Barry - we'll see you in Gibson's in June."

"We just stayed at Villa Santa Barbra for 1 week Nov. 26/08 to Dec.4/08. All we can say is it was amazing, Barb and Barry made us feel like family, the pictures are amazing but when you get there it is even more beautiful, can't wait to go back -- the best spot yet with all our world travels. Barb and Barry, thanks for a great time!

If you are going to Barra De Navadad, stay with Barry and Barb, the most amazing place."

From Gibsons,BC we traveled to many places in Mexico before choosing Barra for the perfect place to build a vacation rental. Barra has everything to offer from music and artizans to friendly,helpful locals,fine dining as well as some of the best Mexican food . Having always been in the service industry,we knew this property was one of a kind with its endless waterfront and everything needed for a perfect vacation.

Barbara Durham purchased this villa in 2007

There is only two other unique properties like this on the pacific coast,the two others are private homes and they are both in Barra.This lot became available one day and I bought it the next.There is water on two of three sides,there are no cars yet you can travel by car,boat or walk to everything within eight minutes.There is peace and quiet and beauty surrounding the entire property with no other houses in front.

This property has it's own private dock with it's own privite ponga(boat)that most others do not have.There is many different species of birds that fly over head down the canals at dusk,it is beautiful!

Lots of TV channels in English, strong internet, full kitchen facilities and lots of small touches (ice maker, bicycles, comfy beds, BBQ grills, juicer, bakery & water deliveries) and well decorated to make things pleasant. Ideal for a group of friends for a getaway an ideal base to explore the region from.

OUR BEST MEXICAN VACATION YET!

  • 5 of 5
Mexico is a wonderful country to visit with its rich and colourful history and friendly people. And, Villa Santa Barbara in the quaint village of Barra de Navida is a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful place to set down roots for a month.

The Villa was everything it was advertised to be and more. The owners, Barb and Barry, went out of their way to make us feel at home. Besides being extremely friendly and personable, they are excellent hosts. Although they were staying in the Villa at the same time as us, we never felt uncomfortable, in fact, it was like they were other quests from home.

We found the accommodations had everything we needed. The maid cleaned our suite twice weekly which was included in the cost. The Villa was extremely clean and well kept. It's obvious that Barb and Barry care about the property and its ongoing maintenance.

Sitting around the pool in front of our Junior Suite and watching the boats and fisherman coming and going on the canal was entertaining. The pool is the cleanest I have ever seen in Mexico. What a treat to jump in the pool and cool off after a walk "home" from the village centre.

One feature of this Villa is its location. Its very quiet. We had no dogs barking all night, no traffic noise, no noisy roosters and neighbours who don't play loud music and party all night.

Barra has a multitude of restaurants, stores and shops. We especially enjoyed the restaurant called Besame Mucho. We had several excellent meals there. And close to Barra are the villages of Melaque, Villa Obregon, San Patricio and Cihuatlan where you can explore other shops, restaurants and stores. Everything is available nearby.

We also traveled four hours by bus to visit the beautiful, colonial city of Colima. You have to see it and visit the museum, colonial palace, shops and restaurants there - you won't regret it.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and will not hesitate to recommend Barra and Villa Santa Barbara to our friends.

AWESOME STAY

  • 5 of 5
I so enjoyed my stay at Villa Barbara's. The accomadations were 5 star all the way. Being situated on the canal gave a constant cooling breeze and the pool was fabulous. Everything was top notch, especially the care taker's, Connie and Gary, who were awesome. I have finally found my home away from home and will return next year. The suite had every convienience. I could not improve on this property in any way.

A DREAMY TIME AT VILLA SANTA BARBARA IN BARRA DE NAVIDAD

  • 5 of 5
A female traveling alone to do some business in the area and relax, I found the perfect place at Villa Santa Barbara. The complex far exceeded my expectations, and I assure others that you won't be let down. Spotless accomodations, every detail present in kitchen, bath, bedroom.

Hosts Connie and Gary went over the top to make sure my stay was perfect! That property and public areas are spotlessly clean. The location is fantastic, and it is true that one really not need a car with a short walk to "town" and water-taxis that pull right up to the property to transport you for a song to wonderful restaurants, nearby villages, off to go fishing, or drop you at a private beach.

A magnificent value in paradise with hosts/property managers and maid/pool people who will make your stay unforgettable.

WHY WOULD YOU SELL?

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! We loved sitting out on the patio watching the fishermen come and go. The breeze kept it cool and comfortable. The fisherman came and went at all hours, creating a soothing sound of water lapping on the sides of the canal. What a great environment to relax and sleep in...
The house is in a very convenient location for exploring Barra and Melaque, which is easily accessible by bus or taxi. Barra is a very sweet little town with everything within easy reach. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

Owner's Response: What consideration to go out of your way for us in such a kind way. We would sell only if we could build it again bigger and better! If not we plan to be here for many years to come.We hope you come and visit us again.

GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS IN A BEAUTIFUL PART OF MEXICO

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Barb & Barry, we loved our stay at Villa Santa Barbara. The dinner and drinks upon our arrival after a long plane ride were great. Our suite was clean and beautiful, the housekeeper Dora was excellent. The pool and grounds were very well kept. Enjoyed our morning walks into Barra for breakfast, and along the beach to Melaque. Loved Raul's boat tour around the island and the Grand Bay Hotel. The beaches in this part of Mexico are beautiful and the water is so warm and clean!! We will be back!!
