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.Walk,ride bikes or take a water taxi from our dock, you will be in centro in a few minutes!
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.

Great Place with Great Hosts
As a woman on my own travelling, Barb and Barry were great hosts and had no qualms with my constant barrage of questions. On arrival there was food/drink in my suite and the pool outside my door was a welcoming sight.
Great hosts, super clean accommodations and I most definitely recommend this place.
You were an excellent guest and we really enjoyed having you stay with us!
Excellent visit to Barra de Navidad
We had a wonderful stay at Villas Santa Barbara. It’s a beautiful spot with all the comforts and facilities that you would expect to find at a 5 star resort, only this is a private little get away with wonderful hosts. Barb and Barry create an atmosphere that makes it feel like you’re hanging out with old friends. Always willing to provide friendly advice and great suggestions about where to go and what to do. A great team! We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to all our friends.
It was a pleasure to have you both and we felt the same. We would love to see you both again and thank you for pool side the visits!
Just returned from our stay at Villa Santa Barbara. We had a great time. We stayed in the junior suite which was well equipped. The location was perfect, only 10 minute walk to the beach. Barbara and Barry were just great and really helpful. Our flight got in late so Barbara left dinner for us in the fridge which we really appreciated.
Villa Santa Barbara is serene and close to everything, it was exactly as described on the listing, clean and well maintained.
We would definitely go back there again.
We have travel though out Mexico and this is the very best place we have ever stayed only sorry it was not long enough
This place is so very special
You were the best and we so enjoyed having you with us!

The best place to stay in Barra!
Villa Santa Barbara was such a gem to find! Not only are Barb and Barry the friendliest hosts we've ever had but they made our vacation amazing. They have been spending time in Barra for over 12 years and they know the area extremely well. All of their recommendations for restaurants, beaches, stores and things to do were amazing. The Villa itself is also fantastic. We stayed in the Junior Suite and it had everything we needed (full bathroom, kitchen, fridge, water cooler with drinking water, comfortable king size bed). The Villa is located on the canal and it either a quick 10 minute walk into town or a 3 minute water taxi to the action downtown(20 pesos each way). The French Baker that comes by boat each morning was also a fabulous treat. If you are looking to really experience Barra, stay here! You will not find better hosts or a better place to stay. We can't wait to come back!
Thank you so much for staying with us,we really enjoyed meeting you both and chatting. We can not wait to see you again! You are both so great to be around!

our Villa is on the end of the canal closest to town with water and 2 sides where you see passing by boats boarders and the French Baker comes daily to our dock.
