Hey, I'm Bonnie!
Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico · Member since April 2010

Hola! I am former public relations professional who worked with blue chip clients including Prince on his film, ¨Purple Rain¨, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, The President´s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, Stephen Wozniak´s rock and roll and computer extrvaganza, the Us Festival and many others for 30 years. While running my San Francisco firm, i renovated Ark de Triumph, an historic ark (1800s houseboat) in Sausalito, CA, and ran a bed and breakfast from part of it that was Ïnn of the Month¨in Travel & Leisure Magazine and featured in major travel and design media in the US. Casa Arriba is my next project and reflects my love of design, art and passion for architecture. According to a leading international architect, ¨There is nothing wrong with the design of this house¨.

I am now an artist and filmmaker and have taught art to over 100 ninos in Sayulita. My film (yet to be named) focuses on the history and original families of Sayulita and will kick off a cultural festival in Sayulita late 2013 or early 2014. It is being created along with a mosaic mural project at Sayulita's Casa de la Cultura depicting the history of the pueblo, both of which are being sponsored by Costa Verde Collegio in Sayulita.

It would be remiss to live in Mexico without rescuing street dogs, two of whom win over guests at Casa Arriba, Chili is from the streets of Puerto Vallarta and Silver is from Lo de Marco, north of Sayulita. They are two of ten dogs who have come and sadly gone and they do an excellent job of keeping Casa Arriba safe for guests.

Mi casa es tu casa. Come with a sense of adventure, a love of beauty and peace, respect for your surroundings and a love of laughter and dogs. I'll do everything I can to help make your stay memorable.
