Casa Centro Experience Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this property was great. A well built, well kept, bright, modern accommodation with everything we needed. In the centre of Barra, close to everything & yet quiet enough at night, including the appliances. Met a lot of people while sitting on the front porch. Amazing. Also, Abel was a great help. Had absolutely no problem booking with Kane through VRBO & received our damage deposit refund promptly. Would like to stay here again when we return to this entertaining town. Thank you.

Our stay at Casa Centro for the month of January 2017

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Barra and can't say enough about the adventurous, fun, interesting, relaxing, and comfortable trip we had for our monthly stay at Casa Centro. From our initial contact with Kane, (the owner) he was quite personable and very helpful in answering any questions that we had about the house and its location in Barra. Kane provided us with information about everything from where his favorite restaurants are to his personal contacts for interests that you may have during your visit. (ie..taking yoga classes, doctors and pharmacies, snorkeling and surfing, best places to see sunsets etc..) I recommend getting in touch with Edgard at the Sands Hotel (315-104-1330) for any kinds of touring or play activities. We nicknamed him the Ductor of fun!

Casa Centro was an excellent choice for its comfort/relaxation, location (center of town), house accessories and amenities, good air circulation with fans and option for a/c, and access to outdoor eating. The house is two years old as compared to other older rentals and hotels in Barra.

We are glad that we found Barra de Navidad and believe we found our happy annual

getaway place.

In looking for a place to stay in this small happy Mexican town and to experience being immersed in the culture, Casa Centro would be an excellent and wise choice.

Thank you Kane!!!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Barra. This house was in a great location...right in town and easy to walk everywhere. We really enjoyed spending time on the patio sipping our margaritas from across the street. The house was really charming, very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The manager, Abel, met us on our first day and went over everything in the house, and he was available by phone if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this house. I know we would love to stay here again!

A Wonderful House in the Heart of Barra

  • 5 of 5

We were in Barra de Navidad for my boyfriend's son's wedding at the beginning of March. Most of the guests chose to stay at the resort across the lagoon but we were so glad we rented Casa Centro. From the time that Abel, the caretaker, met us on the Wednesday afternoon until we left the following week, everything was perfect. Beautifully appointed, clean, new - we couldn't have asked for a nicer house. The nephews, who were also there for the wedding, loved looking at the way the house was built (they're builders) and finished. My personal favorite was sitting on the upper deck in the morning with my coffee and a book. It was a little noisy but that's Mexico - it's ALL noisy and it was quiet in the bedrooms that were located in the back and well away from the street. The only question I had (and told Abel he should let people know) is what the heck do you do with your trash? (Ok you bag it and leave it on the street but it was my first trip to Mexico so it was all new to me).

Tips for future visitors: The best margaritas were at Lucy's. Turn right out the front door, right at the intersection and go about two blocks - Lucy's is on your right. She's open in the evenings. We also taxi'd to Melaque where the beach is a bit nicer - $3.00 US each way - great bargain.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in at this place in mid November. It was by far above and beyond our expectations. The house is amazing. Where to start: beautiful new kitchen, 2 spacious private bedrooms with bathrooms, and an awesome private deck to sit back and enjoy a few cervezas.

Just a block in each direction to the beach and the lagoon. Perfect location right in the heart of Barra. Owner was great to work with. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thanks again!
