If you want to experience a little piece of paradise, this is the place for you. We have stayed at Barb & Barry's place a few times before & will definitely return again soon. The villa is well appointed, well equipped and our hosts went above & beyond to make our stay the BEST! Imagine sitting by the pool or under the palapa in the morning when the French Baker comes up the canal delivering all sorts of breads & tasty bakery treats. Then there is the pool with shade & sun everywhere any time of the day. The palapa offers seating for many friends, watching the fishing boats go by. The decor is wonderful and the beds make you feel like you are at home. We thank you, Barb & Barry for making a wonderful & beautiful "home away from home" for us to visit a few times each year. Thank you for your friendship, hospitality & your fantastic villa :). Dale & Jojo (Red Deer, Ab) April 2016

Best of Costalegre

Villa Santa Barbara has something for everyone, and hosts Barb and Barry do everything possible to make sure each guest finds just the right experience. They have fabulous recommendations for day trips, restaurants, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, local entertainment and more. This is a wonderful setting for a rest, for art, for activity and for adventure. The suite is colorful, tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The villa itself has lovely common areas for swimming, barbecuing, reading and watching canal life. We always felt safe and welcome. The short distance to town is easily navigated by foot, bicycle or cab. Barra merchants and restaurant owners are friendly and gracious. The visit every morning from the French Bakery boat is a treat not to be missed, also. This was a wonderful trip-we will be back!
