“Relaxing, comfortable, friendly - We'll be back!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

The setting is wonderful, right on the canal; we could walk into town and to the little marina where we worked on the new-to-us sailboat. Barb and Barry were helpful and welcoming and even had a recommendation for a guy to work on our outboard motor; we enjoyed the outdoor kitchen, spacious palapa and cool pool for those warm afternoons -- and the opportunity to visit with other guests. We'll visit again when we return to our boat.

“Absolutely Terrific!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Totally delightful! Barry and Barb are the most perfect accommodating hosts! Villa is exactly as described, if not better. Excellent canal front location with an easy walk into town. Safe and the grounds/rooms are well equipped and spotless. A perfect side-trip destination from PV. Highly recommend Villa Santa Barbara if your travel plans take you to Barra. Hope to return again soon.

“Great Place to unwind!!!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

From the moment we stepped onto the property at Villa Santa Barbara we knew we had found heaven. So peaceful, so relaxing, the owners go out of their way to make sure the guests have the utmost comfort. From beautiful flowers in the room, to cold beverages waiting in the fridge for our arrival, along with a full course breakfast prepared by them as well. Villa Santa Barbara is clean, cozy and relaxing, with all the beautiful birds signing their songs every morning, we slept til minimum 9:30am for the duration of our vacation. This Villa is close to town and the beach, but is in a very safe and secure area. We totally recommend this Villa ~ Enjoy your stay!!!!!!

“What a beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We had a great stay at Villa Santa Barbara in the Premier Suite. Barbara & Barry were great hosts and made our stay very comfortable. I especially enjoyed relaxing in and beside the pool and watching the fisherman come and go along the canal. I would definitely consider staying here again!

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed January 16, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Staying here was really a great experience - Barbara and Barry are excellent hosts.
They make you extremely comfortable no matter what you want .. peace and quiet or to be included in their lifestyle. It was an amazing place to spend both Xmas and New Years - away from home but part of their "family".

“clean , fun and friendly”
Reviewed January 11, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

This is one of the best locations and offers the most amenities for a small Mexican town. The suite is clean and well equipped. The location is suitable for walking or an affordable taxi ride. Barra offers a variety of activities and is accessible to many other nearby beaches etc. or is just fine to chill out and just enjoy the atmoshpere. The hosts are unsurpassed in our experience!

“Super relaxing, beautiful, comfortable place.”
Reviewed February 15, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

This past November was the second time we spent a vacation at Villa Santa Barbara and it was even better this time than the first time. The hosts' Barb & Barry go out of their way to make your stay whatever you wish it to be. They can give you all the information you need on the sights to see, excursions to take and the best places to eat, swim, or see the sunset. We hope to return. Ken & Mabel McDermid
