About Barbara Durham
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
Why Barbara Durham chose Barra de Navidad
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.
What makes this villa unique
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!
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."

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."
