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.
What makes this Villa unique

Barra Da Navidad
Excellent "home away from home" first class host and hostess and great neighbors. After a missed connection to get to Barra arrived late to find a drinks and a chicken dinner prepared foe me. Barbara and Barry are first class , gracious hosts and made my stay very comfortable. The neighbors Will and Diana were great just a warm friendly atmosphere all around . Thank you
hi we stayed in the junior suite and it was perfect for a couple. it was nice to be able to come out our sliding doors and in to the pool. pool loungers were very comfortable and when it was too hot the papa was nice and cool. Barb and Barry were excellent hosts and we really enjoyed their company. They were professional but also friendly. They try hard to meet any of your needs and are full of information about Barra. Having access to bicycles was really great as we used them all the time but everything is also within walking distance. There is an outdoor kitchen as well that I used to make breakfast but was well equipped for everything. I loved waiting on the dock in the morning for the french Baker who really does have the most delicious pastries. Our room had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. Barb also left us food and drinks in the fridge for when we arrived which was great after a long travel day.
It was so nice to meet you both and we really enjoyed having you both here and hope to see you again. Thanks Cliff for helping with the pool and thanks Kamla for being so kind when I ate your cake!
Everything and more
We loved our stay at Casa Barbara it really could not have been any nicer.
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.
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.
