This property is in a two and one half acre gated compound of three private luxury homes on the sand at Barra de Potosi on Playa Blanca, an unspoiled 9 mile stretch of white sand beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Architecturally stunning, the villa is a 500 square foot palapa with bedroom (king bed convertible to twins), in-suite bathroom, seating area, kitchen and private patio. All the water is purified. Maid service is included.
The three villas on the property share a beachfront infinity pool, a shaded pavilion with a full sized pool table and 3000 sq meters of grounds with tropical gardens, water lily pond and orchard. The caretaker family lives on the premises and provides cleaning and security services. The property has over three hundred feet of beachfront and the ocean is literally 100 steps away. A nearby point shelters the beach from open surf and provides gentle waves, perfect for swimming in the 80 something degree water.
The project is was designed by renown Neo-Tropical architects Gustavo Jasso and Karina Cabana. It features a striking combination of traditional natural materials such as wood, onyx, thatch and adobe with full modern conveniences.
The property is an easy 5 minute walk from the village of Barra de Potosi with grocery stores, restaurants and its famous seafront seafood enramadas. It also offers bike rentals and boat tours of the off shore islands and the lagoon, which is a birder’s paradise. Onsite staff can help make arrangements for massages, private cook, fishing, golfing and surfing outings as well as sightseeing trips to nearby Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are a retired American couple dividing our time between this beach property and our home in San Miguel de Allende.
Why the Owner Chose Barra de Potosi: We have seen most of the coast of Mexico; this is one of the last unspoiled stretches that has easy access to international airports and is near developed tourist areas with all their amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Barra de Potosi is the epi-center of laid back. It is a quiet village where most of the men are fishermen, launching their pangas off the beach every day and hand lining snapper and pargo offshore. Nature is everywhere from the pelicans diving in the surf to the turtles nesting on the shore. If you want to get away, this is away.
