We stayed at Casa Seafever for 12 nights beginning just after Christmas - our days just flew by, and our only regret was when it was time to pack our bags and return home.
The B&B is absolutely beautiful - the online photos do not do it justice. From the moment we arrived (the owner picked us up from the airport for a reasonable fee), we were made to feel welcome in this lovely home. We had the "canal room," which is a large airy room with king bed, private tiled bathroom (all the rooms have their own bath ensuite) and direct access to the second floor palapa that has comfy hammocks, a pool table, small efficiency cooking facilities, and great view of the canal. There are two other bedrooms and a 2-bdrm apartment on the same floor. Downstairs there is a lovely terrace where breakfast served by the swimming pool.
In addition to the beautiful casa, the owner has a boat and dock, and you can make arrangements to go out fishing, which we did. Lots of fun!
The village of Barra de Navidad is an easy five or ten minute walk, and there are so many great restaurants, it's hard to decide where to go. A quick and inexpensive local bus ride gets you to Melaque, across the bay, for more beaches and restaurants. Both towns are small, friendly, and safe, with some great shopping for local arts and crafts.
Casa Seafever is truly a gem - sparkling clean, beautifully furnished, and run by a friendly and outgoing owner. Highly recommended!
