Your hosts welcome you to Villa Star of the Sea located on the Pacific Ocean at 19º 10' N - 104º 39' W, on Playa del Coco near Isla Navidad. in Barra de Navidad, Mexico, Central Time Zone, on Mexico’s Costalegre, which means "the soul’s resting place", or "coast of joy" in Spanish.

The first question people ask us is "Is our water safe to drink ?" The simple answer is yes. The long version is our water comes from an underground river that is very pure and can be drunk as is, but we take that two steps further and we UV and filter it for the safety of our guests, tested before filtering and UV it tests at 99.6% pure. It does not get any better than that, so no need for bottled water.

Costalegre is a series of different beaches and bays on the western coastline of the Mexican state of Jalisco in an area located between two other major and well-known tourist centers, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco and Manzanillo, Colima.

We have carved out a small oasis in a small piece of the pristene Mexican Costalegre, to create a Destination Paradise for would be vacationing, sun-seeking, travelers, looking for the ultimate in Rest and Relax and unwind. We are on the road less traveled and very quiet. We are just three kilometers south of one of the largest bays, the bay of Barra de Navidad.

Villa Star of the Sea is the most exclusive and most private getaway, hosting only one or two couples or singles at a time in the Bed and Breakfast Suites and in the apartment suite side we can house up to 10. Four in the two-bedroom suite and two in each of the 3 one-bedroom suites. These suites also have their own swimming pool. Come and enjoy this private getaway setting with a vista to die for at the edge of the ocean, at better than competitive pricing.

If quiet is not on your agenda, we may not be what you are looking for.

As a B&B guest, on any given day there will only be your hosts and and possibly two other guests yourselves for a total maximum of 6 people on the premises at anytime. The Sirena Gordita Bar person, will be onsite for short periods during the day. Our morning music is a mix of holistic spa music and after 11 AM a mix of soft mellow jazz. You are able to walk to small local villages in absolute safety. World-class golf is also close at hand. But mostly we provide a private serene setting with an awesome vista at the edge of the Ocean. Sit poolside sipping your favorite beverage. Ask to help you arrange your travel plan to Villa Star of the Sea. From most places in North America during the high season you are approximately 8 hours away by air, which means travel in the morning and enjoy a Margarita on the beach in the afternoon.
