                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Susan Campbell has been a relationship coach for over 40 years. A former professor at the University of Massachusetts, she is author of nine books on the topic of relationships and human communication. Her most recent work centers on how to use honest, presence-centered communication as vehicle for personal healing and expanded self-awareness. This body of work is described in her best-selling, Getting Real and her more recent books, Truth in Dating, and Saying What’s Real. Her work has been featured in many popular magazines including New Woman, Psychology Today, Self, Harvard Business Review, Seventeen, Men’s Health, New Age, Fast Company, and Yoga Journal.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sayulita:
                          I like being an 'innkeeper.' I have owned vacation rental property in the US since the mid 1970's. I love Mexico. And I wanted to have the experience of doing business in a foreign country.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Being in the pool with the views of the courtyard is so beautiful. It is a short walk to town--yet does not get the noise from town because it is not up the hill. You can check your email in the lovely courtyard in the shade. There are screens on all windows--so you don't get bugs. And this property has hardly any bugs anyway. It is essentially bug-free.
