About Barbara Durham
From Gibsons,BC we traveled to many places in Mexico before choosing Barra for the perfect place to build a vacation rental. Barra has everything to offer from music and artizans to friendly,helpful locals,fine dining as well as some of the best Mexican food. Having always been in the service industry,we knew this property was one of a kind with its endless waterfront and everything needed for a perfect vacation.Walk,ride bikes or take a water taxi from our dock, you will be in centro in a few minutes!
Barbara Durham purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Barbara Durham chose Barra de Navidad
There is only two other unique properties like this on the pacific coast,the two others are private homes and they are both in Barra.This lot became available one day and I bought it the next.There is water on two of three sides,there are no cars yet you can travel by car,boat or walk to everything within eight minutes.There is peace and quiet and beauty surrounding the entire property.
What makes this Villa unique
This property has it's own private dock with it's own privite ponga(boat)that most others do not have.There is many different species of birds that fly over head down the canals at dusk,it is beautiful!

Just returned from our stay at Villa Santa Barbara. We had a great time. We stayed in the junior suite which was well equipped. The location was perfect, only 10 minute walk to the beach. Barbara and Barry were just great and really helpful. Our flight got in late so Barbara left dinner for us in the fridge which we really appreciated.
Villa Santa Barbara is serene and close to everything, it was exactly as described on the listing, clean and well maintained.
We would definitely go back there again.
We have travel though out Mexico and this is the very best place we have ever stayed only sorry it was not long enough
This place is so very special
You were the best and we so enjoyed having you with us!

The best place to stay in Barra!
Villa Santa Barbara was such a gem to find! Not only are Barb and Barry the friendliest hosts we've ever had but they made our vacation amazing. They have been spending time in Barra for over 12 years and they know the area extremely well. All of their recommendations for restaurants, beaches, stores and things to do were amazing. The Villa itself is also fantastic. We stayed in the Junior Suite and it had everything we needed (full bathroom, kitchen, fridge, water cooler with drinking water, comfortable king size bed). The Villa is located on the canal and it either a quick 10 minute walk into town or a 3 minute water taxi to the action downtown(20 pesos each way). The French Baker that comes by boat each morning was also a fabulous treat. If you are looking to really experience Barra, stay here! You will not find better hosts or a better place to stay. We can't wait to come back!
Thank you so much for staying with us,we really enjoyed meeting you both and chatting. We can not wait to see you again! You are both so great to be around!

Quiet place to rest and relax!
Barb and Barry are most solicitous hosts and help visitors make the most of their holiday stay. They are very knowledgeable of the music and restaurant scene in Barra and environs. Accommodations are very clean and comfortable. The addition of water taxis and the French Baker every day make this a standout vacation setting!
Thank you for being so gracious!
We really enjoyed and appreciated having you stay with us!
Awesome!! Best place to stay in Barra de Navidad!!
We loved it at Villa Santa Barbara in Barra de Navidad!! My husband and I spent 8 nights there and we really enjoyed it!! I would recommend anyone to stay there and when we go back, we will defiantly stay there again!! Barbara is so helpful and fun to be around. All their suites are well maintained, clean and very comfy! She has lot's of knowledge of the area and made our stay so relaxing!! The water taxi right from our dock is so convenient and easy to get around. It's like our home away from home!!
You were so much fun to be around and thank you for your stay
Barb and Barry were warm and friendly hosts that went the extra mile to make sure we had a great and fun stay. The place was fantastic - the pool (cleaned daily!) and palapa area were great for some private lounging (or eating treats from the French Baker brought to the dock) before getting on a water taxi to take you directly to town and the beach. Walking to town was easy and quick too. The room was very clean, well decorated, and well stocked -the welcome beers and guacamole were a real treat. Barra is a great town to relax in, laid back and still very Mexican with lovely beaches and reasonable prices. Words can't do justice to how much we loved Barra and Barb and Barry's place. Highly recommended!
You were so great and can not wait to see you another time!
