Our first Time to the Villa Santa Barbara and it won't be our last.!! The stylish canal front compound has 3 well appointed suites; a two bedroom penthouse, c/w roof top patio, while we stayed in the junior suite for 7 nights, and the Master for 2. We made ample use of the cooking facilities, the two out door grills...

This 5 star hacienda boasts peace, tranquility and comfort all wrapped into a little piece of paradise. If you want quiet, except the sound of tropical birds and fishing boats putting by, this is for you. A diamond in the rough not a far walk from the beach or town and then there is Barb and Barry! The most gracious,...

Beautiful view of the canal and you can watch the sun set/rise from the roof! The hostesses (Barry and Barb) were so polite and had great advice about what resturants to go to and...

In 2014, my husband and I stayed a week at Villa Santa Barbara before moving to another place where we had stayed for many years. We liked it so much, we decided to spend our whole vacation (5 weeks) at VSB in 2015. We are so happy we did. On arrival, our kitchen was stocked with a delicious meal, beer,...

If you are planning to visit Barra de Navidad, then I would recommend staying at Villa Santa Barbara. Our week long stay in the penthouse was a wonderful way to begin our three month travels. Since we were arriving late, our hosts, Barbara and Barrie, thoughtfully stocked the fridge with an evening meal. Our early morning routine soon became lounging...

We just returned from staying a month with Barb and Barry. We met them last summer after staying at their other property in Gibsons B.C. (also fantastic) and they "convinced" us to come to Barra this winter. Ha! We were pushovers, and anyone who has stayed here would know why. The property is just great; tastefully furnished, on a canal...
