About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

I have been going to Barra for 20 years. Falling in love with the area, people, ocean and mountains everywhere you look. When my house came on the market I bought it at once. I have put in a pool in the back yard. With table, chairs, umbrella and lounge chairs it is very comfortable. I use the pool several times a day when there.

I have a great selection of CD's in the music library as well as a cordless bluetooth speaker system to connect to your phone, tablet or computer. There is U.S. and Canadian cable on flat screen TV for your viewing as well as DVD player with drawers of movies.

There are ceiling fans in each room that keep the tropical breezes flowing through the house.

I have a great team that keep the house and yards in tip top shape wheather I am there or away. A great cleaning lady who comes in for 3 hours a week to clean the house and the pool men (father/son team) come twice a week to check filters, clean and vacuum the pool. They also take care of the gardens. All great employees that have been with me for years and are very trust worthy.

There is a washer and dryer for your convenience in the back courtyard bodega.

There is a large living room/dining room with a table that will seat 8 to 10 comfortably as well as comfortable sofa, chairs and TV in living room.

The kitchen has as large island with 2 chairs so you can sit and have a chat with the cook or just sit and read with your morning coffee. The kitchen is fully equipped to make the perfect meal of fresh fish from the local fish market or perhaps your catch of the day. It contains dishes, pots and pans, various baking equipment as well as a large pizza pan. There is a full size gas stove and large stainless fridge.

There are 2 bathrooms one up stairs and one on the main floor. Each have showers.

There is a spiral staircase up to the two bedrooms, the master has a king size bed, dresser and closet. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser and closet as well as a desk with WiFi connections. We also have a local land line phone. With cordless phones up and down stairs.

Rates are based on double occupancy.

I hope you will enjoy my lovely home as much as I do.

Keywords: This House is a Secure family home located on a quiet street. You could find yourself having a swim and cocktails before wandering down to view one of Barra's fabulous sunsets and dinner. Or cozy up with a good movie after BBQ and a swim at home.

The two story house has 2 bathrooms one on the second floor and one on the main floor. Two large bedrooms upstairs each with a closet. One has a king size bed and the other has a queen bed.

It has an open floor plan downstairs with comfortable dinning room, living room looking out onto the back courtyard which has a garden and pool. A seating area with a table, umbrella and lounge chairs.

There is a large selection of CD's and DVD's as well as US and Canadian Satellite television.

There is secure covered parking in the front courtyard that also has tropical trees and gardens.

I am a short walk (10 to 15 minutes) to the beach in the center of down town Barra de Navidad.

4 happy adults

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room for 2 adult couples and the pool was a delight just about every afternoon for us. Very good staff of 3 who come on there regular shifts. The maintenance man, Gustovo, even lent us 2 of his bikes so we all had one. Easy walking distance to all restaurants, soccer fields and about a 15 minute walk to the beach. Local fruit and vegetables were readily available everyday (the early bird gets the best selection). Loved the BBQ chicken place just 2 minutes away. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a relaxing community. Easy access to Melaque via local transport, 7 pesos by bus 70 pesos by taxi. If you are looking for a lot of tourist things to do, probably rent a car and travel about or catch motor coach to other venues. Barra is a quiet community, at least in January, although we hear February is festival time. We would go back again. Easy to meet people as it seems both Barra and Melaque are populated by long stay tourists.

Squeaky clean pool and house!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for six weeks during Jan and February of 2016. The house was more than comfortable and the neighbourhood quiet. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The pool is very private and was maintained on a regular basis. I would recommend this rental to friends and family.

Mexican Vacation at its Best

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this perfect holiday home 5 winter holidays. It has everything you need to make your Mexican vacation the best - we keep coming back - we started with 2 weeks & have stayed as long as 3 months. You don't need a car in this location - downtown Barra de Navidad is a short stroll as are the grocery, butcher & fish stores. Bus will take you to the next town, but we ride the bikes. I can't wait to go back - we use the pool every day - the service man & the house cleaner are super & always so helpful. Worth every penny.

Very Happy with our rental

  • 4 of 5

We were here for three weeks and could have stayed another three. Very comfortable home with all amenities you need. Close to town, stores, bus stop, you name it. The use of the bikes was awesome and sure helped when getting groceries and our favourite cold beverages. The pool was awesome to help cool down and ceiling fans helped keep the house cool. Having the shaw satelite was great to be able to watch news from home, and in english. The internet was great to have as well. The house not lacking for much at all and hopefully we can come back soon. Gustavo and Maria were great and very trustworthy employees. Really had a good time in Barra. Thanks again!!!!

Best in Barra de Navidad

  • 5 of 5

We are a frequent vacationer in Mexico and Barra de Navidad and we love staying at this particular rental property. For a North American, it has all of the conveniences of home including a gas BBQ, high speed internet, WI FI, Canadian & US TV channels plus a private backyard pool when you don't want to go down to the ocean to swim. In addition, it is tastefully decorated and furnished and a short walk to the downtown. It is our favourite place to stay in Mexico and is ideal for having a fun holiday.

Spotless and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were there with our daughter (the princess) and she loved it too. Absolutely perfect for family or 2 couples. On a side street away from traffic and dust, but easy, short walk to butcher shop, grocery store, beach and our favorite BBQ chicken vendor. Down town fun is only a 15 minute walk too but we did use the bikes to explore all around Barra. The housekeeping staff are friendly and super helpful. We spent the hotest part of the day lounging around the pool and entertained dinner company in the front courtyard with the help of the BBQ. Secure gated parking for bikes, car, surf boards or other toys. The owners are awesome people, super accommodating and concerned that our stay was exactly what we wanted. If you are looking for a great home to rent in Barra, this one is well worth the little extra. We are going back next winter for 2 months.
