About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Brisas Del Mar is a very comfortable, private, and secure family home located within short walk of the beaches of Barra de Navidad, and only a 5 minute walk to the attractions of the town's plaza, markets, and malecon. The casa sleeps six people in 3 bright and airy bedrooms; each with ceiling fans, bathroom, and direct access to outdoors. Meet with the others of your party on the poolside patio and terraza or enjoy the solitude and sea breezes of your own private balcony. All access doors to pool area have locking security bars to keep kids safe. Air conditioning is available in the bedrooms of the upper floor. The full kitchen and spacious comedor are well equipped and furnished for the cooking and dining needs of a group or family of six. The casa has a security safe for valuables. Your vehicle is parked safely off-street behind locking gates.

Barra de Navidad is the perfect beach town for vacationers or retired snowbirds. The airports of Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo are easily reached by scheduled luxury bus or taxi. Sports such as surfing, skim boarding and kayaking are handy to the casa, or take the lancha across the lagoon for lunch and a round of golf at the Grand Hotel. With a rental car one can easily shop in Manzanillo or visit the colonial centers of Colima and Comala, or take the first class bus to spend a few days enjoying the handicraft shops of Tonalá and Tlaquepaque and the beautiful historical centre of Guadalajara.

About Dan Jorgensen, owner

A family of teachers and students, the Spring Break holiday has long been the highlight of our year. Dan has been retired for 3 years, during which time he has been studying Spanish and travelling widely through Mexico and Central America. Barb is counting the days until she can join him in retirement.

Dan Jorgensen, owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Dan Jorgensen, owner chose Barra de Navidad

As a family we had been renting vacation condos on the coast of Nayarit and Jalisco for 10 years. We wanted the convenience of flying into PV, but didn't want the pace of the city. Even Sayulita had become too crowded and busy for carefree family holidays. Then we found Barra which offerred all the amenities of beach towns without the bustle

What makes this house unique

Casa Brisas del Mar is well located within walking distance of the restaurants and the malecon and is only a short walk from several beach accesses. Walk the beach to Melaque for your morning coffee; or make your own to drink in the privacy of your balcony or the poolside terraza.

Spent A Wonderful Month in Barra

  • 5 of 5

The house was quite spacious with one couple taking the upstairs bedroom and the other the downstairs by the pool. That left one bedroom empty upstairs. The house is just as seen on the website. Property managers Rick and Cathy were a dream. The Casa is just a few minutes walk from the heart of Barra or the beach. Great little grocery stores are just one street over. The local soccer field is also just one block over and that's where we could be found on Sunday afternoons. No language barrier when it comes to sports! The music scene in Barra is phenomenal. We highly recommend this casa and the Town of Barra De Navidad. We will be back.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a comfortable house and is exactly as advertised. The owner and the property manager are helpful and great to deal with. This is our second stay at this property and both times we felt secure and at home. Five minutes from the beach and a 10 minute walk into the heart of Barra. There are tons of wonderful restaurants, lots of shops and things to do. You can catch a bus from Barra to pretty much anywhere in the area if you want to see some other places, but you don't need to leave Barra if you don't want to. We spent lots of time on the beach, enjoying the warm water and the surf. There are local markets for groceries very close to the house if you want to cook. We didn't (except for a light breakfast) - the restaurants are so good, we enjoyed our meals at a different place each day. We love coming to Barra - the people in this community are so welcoming, we feel very much at home here. Thank you to Dan, Cathy & Rick for a wonderful week. We will be back!

Open Concept CASA in Barra with traditional mexican decor - Safe and Clean, Econo yet lux

  • 5 of 5

Spacious open concept living areas - all bedrooms have a bathroom with a spacious tiled shower. The traditional décor really added to the destination vacation atmosphere. Very clean home with pool sleeps 6, one king with ensuite and balcony with view of water, a second bedroom on upper with own bathroom with balcony leading down to court yard and pool on main- 2 singles, and main floor bedroom has doors to courtyard/pool area with double and bathroom with shower across the hall. Furnishing are typical Mexican handicrafts (even the water dispenser.) Local grocery a very short walk away. Shopping and restaurants easily walkable downtown. The local property managers knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this casa to many friends.

Great House & Location.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 month stay in this lovely home in Barra De Navidad. This home is exactly as pictured. The kitchen is fully equipped, bed linens and towels were provided. The home is very secure and safe. The home has ceiling fans in every room and no AC is needed. There is always a nice breeze flowing through the home. The pool area is nice and very private. The home is in a very nice neighborhood and close to shopping and restaurants. Cathy & Rick, the local property managers are just a phone call away if you have any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

comfortable home with helpful management

  • 5 of 5

I have a young adult son with down syndrome and this was his first time travelling internationally. Considering my comfort level, this truly was a safe and comfortable home away from home. We were all able to relax. When we did have questions, the local property manager was easy to reach and very helpful. The neighborhood is quiet and walking distance from the shops and restaurants as well as the ocean. Overall, a great stay in a lovely house in pretty Mexican town.
