Doug owns and operates an electrical contracting business and Julie is a registered nurse working in OB services. We live in Santa Barbara, California, have 3 kids and 4 year old grandson and a new granddaughter!! We love to work in the garden, hike in the mountains, cook, travel, spend time with our families and relax when we can! We love Mexico and have traveled to many different areas over the years. We especially like exploring new places and brushing up on our Spanish!
We first visited Sayulita in 2003 and found what has become our second home. We immediately feel in love with the whole laid back vibe and feeling of family the town had to offer. We had talked for many years about living out of the US and finally found our spot. We had a 12 year old at the time and we really appreciated the family friendliness of Sayulita. We looked at many homes for sale during that time but in the end decided to purchase our lot, which has an incredible view, and create our own space. With the help of a talented architect/builder and Doug's many years in the contracting business we spent a year and a half building Ventana and enjoyed the adventure immensely.
Our home sits just up from the beach road so it is an easy walk down to the beach but because it sits up above the road we get wonderful breezes and incredible views. Our neighborhood on the north end is perfect for us. It is close enough to walk to town but far enough away from all the noise of the cars and late night bars. Some days we never leave the house!
This year (2013) we added a beautiful fourth bedroom on the top floor with a spectacular view of the entire bay!
