"My big family (10 adults!) went down to Mexico and stayed with Barry & Barb in their villa for a week of fun in the sun... it was fantastic! B & B went out of their way to ensure we all were comfortable and happy, including a huge delicious lasagna (including veggie version) for our first dinner upon arrival. They gave us lots of good tips about where to eat out, what to see, and do; arranged for massages and pedicures, let us use their bikes, took us on a boat trip thru the canal and around the lagoon, and lots more. But they left us to enjoy their villa and pool on our own most of the time. We hung out pool side or in their huge palapa most of the time into the wee hours of the morning. And enjoyed the beautiful beaches just 3 blocks away every day. Barra is a great town, especially if you are tired of the resort scene as we are. Quiet, simple, authentic, friendly. We had an amazing week!"

"Hi..my wife and i just spent 5 nights at Villa Santa Barbara and LOVED IT! The hosts were exceptional and the property was immaculate...quick walk to Barra's downtown but a quiet refuge if you just wanted to hang around the Villa and read; sunbathe and take a nap! Highly recommended...Todd & Lea"

"We spent a week in this lovely Mexican home. The house, the yard, the pool are very well maintained and spotlessly clean. If you are looking for a place with Mexican charm, right in the heart of a local neighbourhood this is the place for you. We enjoyed strolling and shopping in the neighbourhood shops with the locals. Everybody we met were friendly and helpful. Despite our not speaking spanish, we were able to make ourselves understood with the housekeepers, landscapers, pool people and shopkeepers. Barra town centre and the lagoon area were a 10 minute stroll away with many places to enjoy a meal or a drink. Work on the beach area interferes a bit with the ambience of the beachside restaurants but the results will make up for that inconvenience. Melaque is a short drive or bus ride away with plenty of dining and shopping options. We found the Hawaii grocery store stocking Costco brands of cheese and other food items not easily found in the neighbourhood grocery stores. This area of Mexico is great for those who are not looking for tours and swimming with the dolphins, preferring great weather and slower pace. Not a time-share salesman in sight!!"

"We spent 2 week in Barra with our 3 kids aged between 5 and 9 years old. The house is well equipped, very clean and all the decor and furniture proves a lot of taste. The beds are of good quality. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kids spent a lot of time in the pool and enjoyed the space in the house for playing and relaxing. The house is very close to downtown and to beaches and in the same time located in a very quiet area; we had absolutely no noise during the night and the neighborhood is nice and we felt very safe. The owner and his manager were friendly and helpful and responsive every time we needed something. We had a fantastic time and can recommend this casa without hesitation."
