Barra de Navidad House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Brisas Del Mar is a very comfortable, private, and secure family home located within steps of the beaches of Barra de Navidad, and only a 5 minute walk to the attractions of the town's plaza, markets, and malecon. The casa sleeps six people in 3 bright and airy bedrooms; each with ceiling fans, bathroom, and direct access to outdoors. Meet with the others of your party on the poolside patio and terraza or enjoy the solitude and sea breezes of your own private balcony. All access doors to pool area have locking security bars to keep kids safe. Air conditioning is available in the bedrooms of the upper floor. The full kitchen and spacious comedor are well equipped and furnished for the cooking and dining needs of a group or family of six. The casa has a security safe for valuables. Your vehicle is parked safely off-street behind locking gates.

Barra de Navidad is the perfect beach town for vacationers or retired snowbirds. The airports of Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo are easily reached by scheduled luxury bus or taxi. Sports such as surfing, skim boarding and kayaking are handy to the casa, or take the lancha across the lagoon for lunch and a round of golf at the Grand Hotel. With a rental car one can easily shop in Manzanillo or visit the colonial centers of Colima and Comala, or take the first class bus to spend a few days enjoying the handicraft shops of Tonalá and Tlaquepaque and the beautiful historical centre of Guadalajara.

About Dan Jorgensen, owner

A family of teachers and students, the Spring Break holiday has long been the highlight of our year. Dan has been retired for 3 years, during which time he has been studying Spanish and travelling widely through Mexico and Central America. Barb is counting the days until she can join him in retirement.

Dan Jorgensen, owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Dan Jorgensen, owner chose Barra de Navidad

As a family we had been renting vacation condos on the coast of Nayarit and Jalisco for 10 years. We wanted the convenience of flying into PV, but didn't want the pace of the city. Even Sayulita had become too crowded and busy for carefree family holidays. Then we found Barra which offerred all the amenities of beach towns without the bustle

What makes this house unique

Casa Brisas del Mar is well located within walking distance of the restaurants and the malecon and is only steps away from the beach access. Walk the beach to Melaque for your morning coffee; or make your own to drink in the privacy of your balcony or the poolside terraza.

Great Mexican home!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay here very much, house was clean and comfortable, with more than enough room. Great little pool area in the back with beautiful balconies. Felt very safe here. The house is easily in walking distance to the ocean as well as downtown Barra with plenty of shops, grocery stores and restaurants. The manager in Barra was very friendly and helpful, as well as the owners! Enjoyed my time immensely.

Wonderful Mexican neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was our first, but not last, trip to Barra. The casa was perfect for us, very clean and comfortable. The pool and palapa in the back was where we spent the most time. The kitchen is well-equipped, but we found food in town to be wonderful and inexpensive. Most times meals were so plentiful that we brought food home for later. Cathy was so helpful and even gave us tips on restaurants and entertainment. We will most definitely return.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you took advantage of the restaurants, the number and quality have really increased during our time here in Barra. Thanks for taking the time to review, Susan, we'll look forward to hosting you again.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We found Casa Brisas Del Mar to be perfect. Wouldn't change a thing if we were building our own getaway home in the area. Lots of daylight, kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed upon arrival, yard was quite private, and the pool (which I swam in everyday) was perfect size and temp for me. Option to wash my own clothes and hang to dry was an extra plus. ( even tho the laundrea 1 block away did a lovely job at a very affordable price) The location is quite perfect as it is one block away from Espanola street with lots of local feel, Yummy affordable taco's and our favorite roasted chicken place Los Gueros :) (Get there around noon or 1 for the best, juiciest, affordable chicken)...Yummm.. and 5 or so blocks from the thick of things downtown. One can jump on the bus within 1 block from the home to hop over to Melaque and back. Dan was lovely to work with in the reservation, pre trip planning part of the process and Cathy the property manager was really great and helpful and available whenever we needed her during our stay as well. Would highly recommend this home as a rental option while staying in Barra de Navidad. Thank you Dan and Cathy so much for helping make our visit so awesome :)

Happy renter!

  • 5 of 5

We (three grandmothers) have just returned home from several weeks at this lovely house. The home is as advertised. We found it to be well maintained, clean, homely and comfortable. Any small issues we had were quickly taken care of by the local hosts.

Each of the three bedrooms open to an outdoor seating area. The house was easily accessible to one of our party who uses walking aides. There are three full bathrooms, newly renovated. The kitchen provided all the necessary equipment to make wonderful meals. The pool and patio provide ample space for relaxing. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. The decor and artworks reflect the talent of local artists and artisans.

The casa is a short walk from a grocery store (Pelayos) and a 5 minute walk to the main downtown area. The street is very quiet at night, which is amazing for Mexico!

We would definately recommend this property and hope to stay there again in the near future. It felt like home!

Ideal Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for several weeks in Casa Brisas Del Mar with a group made up of family and close friends: it was ideal accomodation for us. Barra is a very clean and orderly little town, without the dust and noise of other beach towns. It was great to have such a good selection of restaurants and entertainment so close by; yet we didn't have to put up with the night noise of other holidayers. There was lots to see and do both in both the town and the area. We saw a group of dolphins on our walk down the beach for breakfast in Melaque. We took the bus up to see the crocodile reserve and have lunch on the beach at La Manzanilla. We enjoyed the security of having off-street parking when we rented a car to visit friends in Colima.

The house itself is very spacious and comfortable for our group of 5, well equipped, well maintained, and very nicely decorated. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom. The private outdoor areas for eating and lounging in sun or shade really appealed to me, as did the sound of the surf at night. I hope to visit Barra de Navidad and stay here again soon.

Owner's Response: I'm glad that you discovered some of the interesting things there are to do in this area, many of which are accessible by bus. There is also a tour company in town that arranges adventure, culture, and shopping tours to other towns and cities.

Perfect Barra de Navidad Rental!

  • 5 of 5

After a busy business year it was time for us to reconnect. We couldn't have chosen a better location. As the owner promised, the casa was located in a quite area, away from the "busy" part of Barra, but only a short walk to be in the middle of it all for shopping or a cold draft at Hector's. The home is well appointed, and has plenty of room for up to 6 people. It's really easy to find a quiet corner to get lost in a book. As others have said, the booking procedure was seamless, and the owner is absolutely great to deal with.....thanks D. If you have never been to the Barra/Melaque area, it is a wonderful area to explore and a great contrast to the busier areas like Puerto Vallarta. The next time we choose to visit Barra, Casa Brisas del Mar will be at the top of our list for accomodations. Oh, one item for the wish list. We ran across one of our newly made friends in town, and she had purchased a beautiful piece of fresh dorado (only 30 pesos!). It made me think that a grill/barbeque would be an excellent item to add mmmm grilled shrimp.

Thanks again D.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jim for the suggestion: as chance would have it we received your review the very day I was assembling the new gas barbeque. And the first thing on the new grill was prawns! We're glad you enjoyed your time in the casa, and do come again.
