Where to stay in Barra? Something quaint and cozy.

I am planning a trip with my husband to Barra for NYE. I'm not a fan of big hotels but prefer something more personal and quaint (but also clean). Price is not a factor. Ambience, romance, beach, pool are at the top of the list. Any suggestions?

Right in Barra centro only Casa Senorina and Casa de Marco (across the street from the beach) and the Delfin and bungalows MarVida (two blocks from the beach) really fit that description. Everything else is either large enough not to be personal and quaint, doesn't have a pool or is kind of run down. Outside of the centro on the third canal there are two B & Bs Sea Fever and Casa Los Angelitos. They are both very nice too and have pools..

We stayed at Casa de Marco a couple of winters ago and it was great.

Quiet location on the 'main drag', yet it was nice and quiet at night.

Easy access to the beach (not beach front ,but a short block from beach) and a short stroll to all the town's bars and restaurants and shops.

Lovely condo, room to stretch out and relax, satellite TV with quite a few English channels, and with movies to borrow, a library of books, lovely little pool and outdoor area, clean as a whistle and nicely decorated and landscaped. And Barra Nan's office is right there for all your questions and tips! When we go to Barra again we would definitely try to stay here. :)
