If you are planning to visit Barra de Navidad, then I would recommend staying at Villa Santa Barbara. Our week long stay in the penthouse was a wonderful way to begin our three month travels. Since we were arriving late, our hosts, Barbara and Barrie, thoughtfully stocked the fridge with an evening meal. Our early morning routine soon became lounging... More

We spended three days and four nights in Villa Santa Barbara with friends and our dogs and just had many relaxing hours. The suites are so lovely kept and decorated that you feel at home from the first moment on. The King size beds are very confy, specialy for lazy back's... The highlight was to go to the beach and...

Our Hosts, Barry and Barb were amazing and so accomodating to our every need. Anything from arranging spa day beside the pool to hiring our own personal chef to cook us and our guests an authentic Mexican Meal. We were two couples, renting the two bedroom Penthouse suite and it was roomy, clean, private and very cozy - honestly it... More

We just returned from staying a month with Barb and Barry. We met them last summer after staying at their other property in Gibsons B.C. (also fantastic) and they "convinced" us to come to Barra this winter. Ha! We were pushovers, and anyone who has stayed here would know why. The property is just great; tastefully furnished, on a canal... More

We spent a week at Villa Santa Barbara and couldn’t have been happier. We love the area and have stayed in quite a few hotels/houses. VSB is by far our favorite place in Barra de Navidad. The suites are beautiful, actually nicer than the pictures. Barb, Barry, and Dora helped as much as we needed, and left us alone when... More

The apartment looked great in the photos and was even better in person, if that is possible. Everything we needed was right there. Barb and Barry did everything they could to make our stay memorable and fun. They had our fridge stocked with some supplies to get us started, they helped us decide where to go and who to hire...

My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse suite for a month and we had friends and family come down to visit us throughout the month. They were able to stay in the other two suites. So we were together, shared the pool and palapa and the outdoor kitchen, but we all still had our own space and privacy. The... More

haunchie, Owner at Villa Santa Barbara, responded to this review

This review was very misleading,we do not advertize Ocean views,we are on the water located on the corner of a canal and that is how we advertise. The reason this guest paid $4200 is she booked the Executive Penthouse suite for herself and one other person for 1 month in peak season.This suite normally rents out at $1250 a week... More
