About the property

Recently Built Home 2br + 2ba, Sleeps 5, One Block from the Beach & Restaurants

Casa Centro is situated in the center of the Barra De Navidad peninsula. This new home was built in 2014 and is clearly a one of a kind gem. Pick mangos from your second story deck while overlooking Calle Sonora, one of Barra's oldest streets!

Casa Centro is located less than 100 paces from over 20 restaurants, bars, hotels, stores, beaches, fish market and charter boat businesses. The house has a modern Mexican feel using natural indigenous materials. The Kitchen and Baths are decorated with bright Mexican tiles. The floors and counter tops are done in a glass inlaid terrazzo. The walls are pictured with photographs of old Barra.

If you are looking for a place to hang your hat in Barra, Casa Centro is the place for you. The house sleeps five comfortably, has air conditioning, a modern gourmet kitchen, two flatscreen TV's equipped with Roku and a DVD player as well as has a wireless internet connection. Sit underneath the fan in a second floor open air room that looks over the charming tree lined Calle Sonora. Its perfect for an afternoon siesta or hanging out with friends playing cards or a crossword puzzle.

In a safe and private setting "Casa Centro" puts you in the middle of it all and only seconds from the beach !

Another yearly visit to Barra and stayed at Casa Centro again. No problems whatsoever: from making the booking, to getting from the airport and accessing the house, to having a good time in the town & surrounding area, to sadly checking out and to getting our damage deposit refunded quickly....great. The unit was as good as new and we found everything as we expected. Comfortable & in a great location. Also, Kane and his manager Abel are easy to deal with. Looking forward to returning.

a gem

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little house has everything you need close by. It is centrally located, but the design allows for privacy and quiet nights on good beds. Very clean, the host is charming and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We were only two people, but two couples would do well here too.

Thoroughly relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Centro in the heart of Barra de Navidad. We were picked up by Abel at the airport who is an easy going and helpful manager and he gave us a full tour of the property. The Casa itself was very clean and comfortable with all amenities neatly provided and stowed. We spent a lot of our time in the upper patio/deck which is naturally cool and comfortable. Air conditioning in both bedrooms and the lower living room proved useful.

There are many restaurants right outside the door and the malacon is a short walk away. The town is user friendly and there are ample services, excellent sea food and sandy beaches etc. In short, it was a very relaxing, safe and comfortable Casa and climate a for a family stay.

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!!!
