LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

Hi Guys,

Maybe I'm preaching what you already know, but with Expedia buying our VRBO/Homeaway, their listing and search engines drive renters to big hotels WAY over individual homeowners. I can't even find Casa Cascada anywhere in the Expedia listings, but it does try to send me to Bucerias, Punta Mita, even Nuevo when I request Sayulita listings only. Here's a comment I thought you should see: Posted Aug 20, 2016.

My business is non existent, now that Expedia took over VRBO.com and Homeaway. I had been contacted by other owners in the Carlsbad area, who had similar complaints, their beach homes, not getting inquires and not receiving rentals. Expedia purchased VRBO.com and Homeaway.com to put private property owners out of business. This was done as a benefit to the big hotel owners and corporations, while the little guys get shut out and stuck with a revamped system, orchestrated and created by Expedia, to stop vacation home owners from being able to conduct business. They hire flunkies to field their many calls, but ultimately, they don't care. The buy out was for no other reason than to ruin vacation rental owners businesses, and to redirect booking business to the big hotels.

So...you guys are SUPER IMPORTANT to our livelihood and I'm seeing more requests from SayulitaLife.com these days than VRBO. Thank you, Gracias, Mahalo. Keeping the calendars updated on your site is more important than ever. Hope to see you in November!

Saludos, Garry and Jenny Lawler- Casa Cascada and Las Olas

MEET THE OWNERS SERIES:
GABRIEL AND WENDY JONES (Casa Vecino)



Can you please tell us your name and a little bit about yourself?

My wife Wendy and I are Canadians in our early 40s who moved to Sayulita from Vancouver, BC, Canada about 5 years ago. We were originally planning on taking a one-year break from our busy city lives, but fell in love with life in Sayulita and started to work on ways we could stay.

SPEARFISHING WITH SPEARMEX



I’ve often said that if I had to hunt my own food, I would most likely be a vegetarian, with perhaps the exception of fish. So, on Saturday, that theory was put to the test when I went spearfishing with my friend, Izabela, with Spearmex in Punta Mita, just a short drive from Sayulita.



LIVE, LOVE & EAT IN SAYULITA:
CAULIFLOWER PIZZA


Do you ever have any cravings for something savoury and yummy? I sure do, and my biggest, most favorite is pizza! I love to eat pizza! I had 4 girls in 5 years many a moon ago amd while pregnant what I most wanted to eat was pizza. I would call George at our local pizza place and all I had to say was “Hi George,” and he would reply “one pepperoni pizza coming up."

SURF SAYULITA: DAYDREAMING 

Robin Lanei  


PET OF THE WEEK 


My name is Mota and I am a pretty chill street dog from Bucerias. I was lucky enough to have a local guy help me out. But, he has a small apartment and a few of his own dogs. I like him so much, I escape to find him and it is not safe for me. I am fixed and healthy and would be your most loyal friend. Contact Sayulitanimals if you want a little Mota in your life.
