This is the third time in 5 years we've stayed at Villa Santa Barbara (Premier Suite). It's the perfect place to get away and relax in the sun. We can't say enough about the hosts, Barb and Barry. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful stay.
The Villa is clean, quiet, and peaceful. It's about an 8-10 minute leisurely walk from the centre of town. It's on the canal so there's always a nice breeze blowing. The suite amenities have already been covered by the other posters and we agree with all of them - very clean and comfortable, inside and out, pretty much sums it up.
The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you'll need. The nearest grocery store is a 5-minute walk away, but in a pinch your best bet is to call and have beer and a roast chicken meal delivered directly to the Villa! :) And when you're not into cooking, Barra has plenty of great places to eat.
Barra itself is a quaint, safe, clean little town with everything from restaurants to grocery stores to beaches within comfortable walking distance. We have never felt we needed a car to get around, but there are lots of taxis available if you want to explore the area.
All in all, we'd have no reservations about recommending Villa Santa Barbara to our family and friends. We know we'll be back soon!
