The villa shares a beach side infinity pool, a pavilion with a full sized pool table and extensive grounds with tropical gardens, water lily pond, orchard and caretaker's quarters. Villa Tamarindo is perfect for a couple; it is not suitable for small children.

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.

                                      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.
