Villa Mandala is one of three villas at Sendas del Mar which lies in a two and one half acre gated compound on the beach at Barra de Potosi.

The three villas at Sendas del Mar share a beachfront infinity pool, a shaded pavilion with a full sized pool table and 3000 sq meters of grounds with tropical gardens, water lily pond and orchard.There is a large parking area inside the walls The caretaker family lives on the premises and provides cleaning and security services.

Owner info

About the owner: we are a retired American couple now living full time in Mexico where we split our time between Barra de Potosi and San Miguel de Allende. From November until April we spend most of our time at Villa Maderas on this property in Barra de Potosi, so there is a good chance you will meet us there.

Why the Owner Chose Barra de Potosí, Gro., Mexico:
Over the years, we have explored almost all of the Pacific coast of Mexico. This place is sometimes called The Last Best Beach because it remains so natural and simple despite being just 10 minutes away from an international airport. We never found any place that comes close in terms of natural beauty, laid back atmosphere, and great community.
