Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Barra de Navidad, Jal., Mexico:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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!
