Beach to the South

Did I mention we are right on the beach? No, I mean RIGHT ON THE BEACH! This is high tide with an onshore wind – granted. But you can’t get any closer than this!

On an annual visit to Barra twenty-five years ago, I was fortunate to discover s narrow  two-story concrete beachside treasure set in a perfect location. Today it is Hotel Casa Chips and has Barra’s best view It is a perfect place to relax and rest.

Over the past several years, Hotel Casa Chips has been put to the test.  The area has had its fair share of tropical rain storms, earthquakes and hurricanes and our little beachside hotel has passed with flying colors.

There is a rumor that the oceans are rising, but Hotel Casa Chips is making ground, or should I say beach. In the past few months the hotel has undergone a remodeling project complete with structural changes to reinforce one of Barra’s best known landmarks.

Many things in my life have changed since I discovered my beach treasure.  Thanks to my wife Emerita and her Mexican family, Casa Chips has become a joint project.  Our Casa Chips family hotel offers our guests a unique, personal experience.  The small, friendly beachfront hotel that is just steps away from a wide selection of cafes, restaurants and shops.

We invite you to stay with us.  Explore Barra’s hidden treasures on foot or on bicycle.  Enjoy leisurely strolls along our sandy beach.  Discover why our guests return to Casa Chips time and time again.

Join us at Casa Chips for cocktails on our new guests-only Terraza, where you can relax under the golden sun or enjoy a sunset and the lights of Barra in the evening.

Feliz Navidad from Charles and the Staff at Hotel Casa Chips!
