The Unique Benefits of this House
We love this location. You can walk to town in 5 minutes, and the people are friendly. It is very safe - we have had no problems of any kind. We spent 5 years looking for the right place to settle, and when we came to Barra, we knew this was the place. Watching the boats go up and down the canal while floating in the pool with a beverage, listening to music, sitting under the dock-side palapa checking emails ... or, you can go up to the third level and "play" while having a great view. The gourmet kitchen allows you to cook, with plentiful (and cheap) fresh seafood available.
We have cute little bars, many little grocery stores and taco stands as well as fine dining. The Grand Bay Resort (rated #1 in all of Mexico by the Travel Channel) is right across the lagoon from us. You can take a water taxi, from your own dock, to the resort and play decadent for the day (golfing, eating, hanging by the pool or in Mexico by the Travel Channel), or simply catch a ride in to town .. if you don't feel like walking. We also have snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing and of course sport fishing for marlin, sailfish, tuna, dorado (mahi) and more. we have available here all of the fun things the beaches of Mexico offer.
If a beautiful luxurious home on the canal is what you are looking for, "Casa Pescador" is it. Situated in the center of the middle canal (the most desirable of the 3 canals) "Casa Pescador" is among the nicest homes in Barra de Navidad. This newer 3 story, 3800 sq foot, home was constructed with the latest in technology, utilizing cold steel and concrete, similar to that of Maui, Hawaii, which is of the same geographical type/zone of this area.
Unlike a typical Mexican concrete brick/block house, this weather/earthquake proof home is fully insulated, deflecting heat, rather than retaining it within the walls. The home was designed by a popular Guadalajara architect, incorporates lots of rounded corners, nooks and air-flow throughout the home, providing additional comfort. The main floor contains a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, with all American GE appliances (Fridge, Oven, Microwave, Dishwasher), flat screen TV, as well as a center island with a Jenn-air cook top/grill, all amongst 1 piece granite counters and hand crafted Caoba (Mexican Mahogany) cabinets. Off the kitchen there is a small private outside breakfast/reading atrium, a laundry room with a Washer Dryer, a canal view dining room and separate canal view living room looking up to a spectacular lighted cupola. There is also a ½ bathroom on the main floor.
The second floor has a family TV room, two large master bedrooms, one facing the canal, one street-side, each with a small balcony, flat screen TV, custom bathrooms, with showers and tubs. The canal-side master bathroom has a custom Japanese soaking tub. This floor also has a separate ½ bath and a 3rd smaller bedroom, with a twin bed, which could be used as an office.
The 3rd floor is the activity center and highlight of the house, with a second TV, entertaining room, ½ bath and bar area. Two large sliding Caoba (Mexican Mahogany) wood pocket doors open to a spectacular outdoor entertainment area, with a pool table and dart board (under a palapa roof), private sun-tanning area, plenty of seating, with views of the whole canal, part of the lagoon and the Grand Bay Resort. There is exercise equipment here as well, including a stationery bike, elliptical exercise machine and a weight bench.
Features also include gated street access, with parking. The canal side of the home features a wonderful, large infinity pool, palapa canal side sitting area, barbeque area and its own lighted dock. One can fish right off the dock for small snapper, snook and barracuda. This home is wired for music, with ceiling flush mounted speakers throughout, satellite surround sound TV and wireless internet, security gate camera, with 2 iPod docking stations and custom control touch panels throughout the house, including the outside entertainment areas.
