About the property

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

Casa Brisas Del Mar is a very comfortable, private, and secure family home located within short walk 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 Jalisco

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 a short walk from several beach accesses. 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.

Open Concept CASA in Barra with traditional mexican decor - Safe and Clean, Econo yet lux

  • 5 of 5

Spacious open concept living areas - all bedrooms have a bathroom with a spacious tiled shower. The traditional décor really added to the destination vacation atmosphere. Very clean home with pool sleeps 6, one king with ensuite and balcony with view of water, a second bedroom on upper with own bathroom with balcony leading down to court yard and pool on main- 2 singles, and main floor bedroom has doors to courtyard/pool area with double and bathroom with shower across the hall. Furnishing are typical Mexican handicrafts (even the water dispenser.) Local grocery a very short walk away. Shopping and restaurants easily walkable downtown. The local property managers knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this casa to many friends.

Great House & Location.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 month stay in this lovely home in Barra De Navidad. This home is exactly as pictured. The kitchen is fully equipped, bed linens and towels were provided. The home is very secure and safe. The home has ceiling fans in every room and no AC is needed. There is always a nice breeze flowing through the home. The pool area is nice and very private. The home is in a very nice neighborhood and close to shopping and restaurants. Cathy & Rick, the local property managers are just a phone call away if you have any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

comfortable home with helpful management

  • 5 of 5

I have a young adult son with down syndrome and this was his first time travelling internationally. Considering my comfort level, this truly was a safe and comfortable home away from home. We were all able to relax. When we did have questions, the local property manager was easy to reach and very helpful. The neighborhood is quiet and walking distance from the shops and restaurants as well as the ocean. Overall, a great stay in a lovely house in pretty Mexican town.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very nice house for a week in early December. It was exactly as advertised and photographed. We agree with all the previous reviews, that it is very clean and has everything needed for a week in the sun. A grocery store is only 1 1/2 blocks away and there are 2 'convenience' stores within a couple of blocks. We had planned to cook at the house in the very well equipped kitchen but meals were so good and so cheap that we ate out every night and most nights were sitting on the ocean's edge, getting the spray from the crashing waves!

Just a very small clarification about the 3 bedrooms/ 3 bathrooms in case 3 couples were looking to share. The 2 upstairs bedrooms have ensuites and the bedroom downstairs has a bathroom across the hall, but that bedroom also has patio doors right out to the pool!

We loved Barra and the people and walked a few times on the beach to Melaque.

Managers were great and only a phone call away. Wifi was very good and you could make free phone calls to Canada and the U.S. Loved it and would love to go back someday!

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay with another couple. The property is just as described in the website, is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach and there are lots of shops and restaurants very close by. We walked all around Barra and felt welcome and safe in the community. The owner has equipped the property with everything that you could need, is very responsive to any questions we had and the local property managers were terrific. This was the first time we have rented a property instead of going to an all-inclusive resort and we are glad we made this choice. We really enjoyed this rental, loved the location and hope to return. Thank you to Dan, Cathy and Rick for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks again for your visit, I'm glad you enjoyed Barra. When you come back we'll be sure to ask Cathy to point out the beach access road at the corner. You can be planting your umbrella for a quiet day on the sand in three minutes, or choose between the short walks along the beach to Playa Malecon or Melaque's beaches.
