About the Property

House, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Sleeps 6-8

Barra de Navidad, on the Costa Alegre, midway between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta, is a picturesque, friendly little fishing town built on a sandbar that extends into the Bahia de Navidad. The town is a 20 minute drive to the Manzanillo International airport with direct flights in season from Calgary, Toronto, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles and, of course Mexico city. Barra, as it is familiarly known, is a charming, safe town which is sleepy in the off season and bustling at Christmas and Easter Week. For swimming and water sports, you can choose between the calm waters of the lagoon, the beach on the bay or one of the spectacular neighbouring beaches. At the far end of the Bahia de Navidad is the busy town Melaque. For those looking to explore and visit , Barra is 2 hours from Colima, 3hours from Puerto Vallarta and an easy 4 hours to beautiful Guadalajara.
Many of the cobblestone streets are open to pedestrians only and the village is easily explored on foot. Across the bay, accessible by road or water-taxi, in Isla de Navidad, is the 5 star Grand Hotel, with marina and a world class golf course. Barra abounds in good restaurants, great sport fishing, excursions and all variety of water sports.We have breathtaking sunsets,a tremendous variety of birds and we are blessed with warm, delightful people. Time for REAL REST.


Our casa is a spacious, well equipped and comfortable two-storey family home. We have neighbourhood shopping a few steps from the house, we are five minutes from the beach and within easy walking distance to the town centre. The property which is on a large double lot, is fully enclosed for complete privacy and security. Within the 8-to 10 foot walls are the large palapa, two separate outdoor eating and bbq areas, tropical garden, a fountain and a good sized pool. The living/dining area on the ground floor is open and spacious...we have recently added a pool table! There is also a full kitchen and bathroom downstairs.Ceiling fans throughout. Upstairs; the den/ TV area, 2 full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms (king, double and 2 twin; all with fans) with large front and back balconies. The house is fully equipped, plenty of towels and linen, lots of books, games CD's and DVDs for relaxed and easy living. A WIFI connection has recently been installed and is available to visitors.
We have recently completed construction of lovely guest house next to the main building on an adjoining lot, also fully enclosed. The new casita has a king bedroom with adjoining full bath and a small kitchen as well as an indoor living area a palapa covered dining area. The guesthouse is completely independant of the main house, however the two properties can be opened up to share the garden and pool.The two houses can be rented together for larger groups (max 10).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Barra de Navidad, Jal., Mexico:
On our very first visit to Barra we were completely smitten. The location, the sun, the sea, the relative social stability, the delightful people, the enchanting village, the energy and the hospitality were overwhelming. Within three days we bought our wonderful casa and we have not regretted that impulsive decision for a moment since.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the marvellous aspects of spending time in Barra is the many alternatives which are possible. You can stay put.... totally... hang out around the pool, shop in the barrio, eat at home, play pool, listen to music or you can explore the village and immediate surroundings; Melaque, La Manzanilla,La Colimilla, lunch at the Grand Bay, golf, fishing or water sports. For those curious folks who can stay longer, we are two hours from the wonderful, colonial town of Colima, four hours from Ajijic and Guadalajara, the artisanat center of Mexico, and La Ticla, some of the best surfing on the coast. Bustling Puerto Vallarta is only three hours north along the coast with marvellous beaches and exclusive hotels along the way.
